infographics present the greatest opportunity to increase the effectiveness of what is being taught. Designing visual representation of information is more than translating words to pictorials.  The construction involves filtering the information, drawing relationships, revealing patterns and representing the information as meaningful content.

I confess...I am a fraud, too. You hadn't figured that out yet? Really. It's so obvious. Heck, I'm a fraud for posting this article about being a fraud, for heaven's sake. 

 

A big part of content strategy is learning how to reuse information in order to reshape it into something different and new. There are some great examples of this sort of thing in the article, and I'm sure you can think of many more. 

 

Based on this article, are you fraudulent, too?  Confess your sins below, and let's commiserate.

I think almost everyone knows how much I love Val Swisher. I think I've learned a lot over the last 2-3 years from her that I've been able to apply towards my current job. I have to say that as I was coming into the content strategy scene, I wondered about the emphasis on metrics, too. It wasn't something that I knew a lot about, and in my work I usually didn't have to get too deeply involved in that part of it. This isn't to say that metrics aren't important, but rather I didn't understand how that would supercede how one would have to look at the big picture, much like Val describes (and she's in deep with this stuff much more than I am, so she would know). So, I can understand her joy in seeing this switch over time. It makes more sense to me, too. Read this!

Making The Shift To Mobile-First Teaching

Making The Shift To Mobile-First Teaching | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it

"When smartphones first became popular, the struggle was to shrink Internet Explorer to the size of a playing card. The internet browser was the de facto app installed on every computer—it allowed you to browse the web. For many, the web browser is a computer. (See Google Chromebooks.)

 

It quickly became clear that squeezing desktop actions on handheld technology was backwards. Mobile-first thinking changed things. Facebook became mobile-first—which meant that it’s designed to not just be accessed on your phone, but work better on your phone. Websites are often now responsive, scaling to the size of your screen."

15 Great Audiobooks for Helping Kids Read Better | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 Great Audiobooks for Helping Kids Read Better | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it

The puzzling question that is often posed when talking about audiobooks' integration in the teaching and learning of literacy is whether they have the same cognitive benefits as the actual reading. In other words , can listening to audiobooks be considered reading?

 

Well, the answer does require a rigorous scientific study; however, what is certain here is that listening to audiobooks and reading both require serious engagement with the content for deep and critical understanding to take place.

There are actually several myths around audiobooks such as that they are a form of cheating or that they are for those with reading disabilities or those who don't like to read.

 

But these are unverifiable myths and do not stand to the evidence of reason. In fact, such a discussion on the uncertainties related to audiobooks does a big disservice to their actual merit.

 

As a learning tool, audiobooks have a number of important educational benefits to students and can be used in a variety of ways. Reading Rockets lists 10 interesting things you can do with audiobooks in class:

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 16, 7:39 PM

Have you wondered what connectivism is? This infographic, using information from Stephen Downes and George Siemens provides this definition for connectivism:

"...the thesis that knowledge is distributed across a network of connections, and therefore that learning consists of the ability to connect and traverse those networks."

What are the 8 principles? They are listed below but you will find much more information in the infographic.

1. Learning and knowledge rest in a diversity of opinions

2. Learning is the process of connecting specialized nodes

3. Learning may reside in non-human appliances

4. Capacity to know is more important than what is currently known

5. Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning

6. The ability to define connections between concepts is important

7. Currency (accurate, up-to-date knowledge) is the intent of all connectivist learning activities

8. Decision-making is a learning process as information can change and what is viewed as correct one day may be incorrect the next

The second part of this infographic focuses on What Does an Online Connectist Course Look Like?

There is much information to be found in this lengthy infographic. It also includes a list of works consulted.
