10 Ways To Support Learning Styles With Concept Mapping

10 Ways To Support Learning Styles With Concept Mapping | Literacy, Education and Common Core Standards in School and at Home | Scoop.it

"Engaging your mind takes some effort to identify what you care for and what is the best way to attain what you care for. Do you want students to become better learners? Help them discover what they care for by allowing them to identify and use their own learning style."

Tracy Hanson's curator insight, April 5, 2013 3:14 PM

It seems the more people deny there are learning styles the more information surfaces explaining them.

Very good overview of different usages of mind maps and concept maps.

The Ghost of Grammar Past: Is Texting Hurting Kids' Grammar?

The Ghost of Grammar Past: Is Texting Hurting Kids' Grammar? | Literacy, Education and Common Core Standards in School and at Home | Scoop.it

According to Alan Mozes (HealthDay Reporter, 8/8/2012) A new study ("Texting, techspeak, and tweens: The relationship between text messaging and English grammar skills" by Drew P. Cingel and S.Shyam Sundar - first published in New Media & Society, May 11, 2012) warns that texting among young teens may be undermining their grammar skills.  This concern stems from the results of standardized language testing and surveys among 228 middle school students grades six through eight between the ages of 10-14 from central Pennsylvania.

LOGOS: Grounding Logic and Expectations in Our Communications

LOGOS: Grounding Logic and Expectations in Our Communications | Literacy, Education and Common Core Standards in School and at Home | Scoop.it

With our increased use of short text bursts and visual icons - both modern adaptations of LOGOS are essential elements of communication and learning. In this post, I focus on how Aristotle's use of logos is STILL a vital part of communication used today.  Whether we use logos to relay vital arguments in public speaking,  classrooms, group discussions  - or whether we use it in advertising and politics to convince a target audience of the merits or our "product" - we must learn how to present compelling arguments in a way that seems 'logical,'  familiar  and meaningful to our audiences. This means that not only must we be familiar with our intrinsic arguments, we have to understand which arguments are most effective for any given audience.  NOT an easy feat.  Hopefully the information below will help.

Meryl Jaffe, PhD's insight:

This post talks about Aristotle's use of rhetoric and ties it with visual literacy.  There are also some awesome links!!!!!

"Infographics are effective because of their visual element...Fifty percent of the human brain is dedicated to visual functions and images are processed faster than text...Furthermore, it is estimated that 65% of the population are visual learners (as opposed to auditory or kinesthetic), so the visual nature of infographics caters to a large portion of the population.
