Linda Dougherty's curator insight, October 12, 2013 10:14 AM

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

Susan Kay Daniels's curator insight, January 13, 9:30 AM

This is a PowerPoint presentation that would have sent my former employers into shock. They had no imagination whatsoever. However, Eugene Cheng clearly has wonderful artistic skills and knows how to present them. In addition, he clearly has a nice budget to work with. These kind of beautiful graphics don't come at low price. I thoroughly enjoyed glancing through this presentation and plan to use it as inspiration for future projects.

 

Warmly,

Susan Daniels

While beautiful Powerpoint may seem like an oxymoron  this slideshow proves it is possible.

Image of the Day: Guy builds giant robot out of scraps | Mathematics learning | Scoop.it
Chinese inventor, Tao Xiangli, is getting increasingly ambitious with his DIY creations.
Edgar Mata's insight:

This time, he used scrap metal and electrical cables to build a 529-pound robot that stands at nearly seven feet tall. This undertaking set Xiangli back $24,407 and took nearly a year to complete. The result is pretty great, albeit menacing, in the picture above by Suzie Wong.

Concept Mapping/Graphic Organizers

Concept Mapping/Graphic Organizers | Mathematics learning | Scoop.it

"Reading Rockets shares that "A concept map is a visual organizer that can enrich students' understanding of a new concept. Using a graphic organizer, students think about the concept in several ways. Most concept map organizers engage students in answering questions such as, "What is it? What is it like? What are some examples?" Concept maps deepen understanding and comprehension."Cast reports: "There is solid evidence for the effectiveness of graphic organizers in facilitating learning." A summary of this finding is that, "When looking across 23 different studies they found a consistent effect on comprehension."

Graphic organizers often help students understand new concepts, and they may help students find misunderstanding or areas of weakness (and strength). This post provides:

* 7 ideas on how to use graphic organizers/concept maps in the classroom

* 5 examples of use in the classroom

* The benefits of graphic organizers

* Concept maps and assistive technology

* Multiple intelligences/learning styles supported

* Sources that provide graphic organizers including a list of online, downloadable, iDevices, Chrome extensions and printables

* A list of websites with additional information

Many great resources are available in this post.

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, August 20, 8:04 AM

Assumption #1 (Self-Concept)
Create learning experiences that offer minimum instruction and maximum autonomy.

Assumption #2 (Adult Learner Experience)
Include a wide range of instructional design models and theories to appeal to varied experience levels and backgrounds.
Assumption #3 (Readiness to Learn)
Utilize social media and online collaboration tools to tie learning to social development.

Assumption #4 (Orientation to Learning)
Emphasize how the subject matter is going to solve problems that an adult learner regularly encounters.
Assumption #5 (Motivation to Learn)
There must be a valid reason behind every eLearning course, module or educational activity.


Principle of Andragogy#1
Adults must have a hand in the design and development of their learning experience.

Principle of Andragogy#2
Experience should be at the root of all eLearning tasks and activities.

Principle of Andragogy #3
Real life applications and benefits must be tied to the eLearning course.

Principle of Andragogy #4
Give adult learners the opportunity to absorb information, rather than memorizing it.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, Today, 1:00 PM
Here's why the Internet works, "... because open standards allow every network to connect to every other network.  (So far...)   This is what makes it possible for anyone to create content, offer services, and sell products without requiring permission from a central authority.

It levels the playing field for everyone and it’s the reason why we have a rich diversity of applications and services that many of us enjoy today.
