7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom

7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
No matter what happens, there will always be a demand for data visualization tools. Data on its own can be pretty boring and brightening it up with images and other visual tools, it can make normally inaccessible information much easier to digest. (Editor’s Note: It’s also great for information reading literacy, and the new Common Core demand for multimedia “texts.”) There are a number of fantastic tools out there that will present your data in an accessible manner. All of the tools listed below are free and chances are you’ve used one or two of the tools mentioned before.

I don't mind saying I borrow the name from him, but I would certainly say this is as much my theory (and that of numerous other people) as it is his."

Why e-learning should be in perpetual beta


Via Ana Cristina Pratas

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, September 10, 2:38 AM
"A right first time approach works if you are building skyscrapers or making Hollywood movies. The safety considerations or the cost of re-work simply demand it. And if you are sending out physical product, like printed books, it is clearly uneconomic to keep printing and distributing new versions. But in an era in which software apps and web content are updated almost constantly and usually painlessly, there is simply no argument for treating e-learning content as if we were making $100m movies or printing books.
Agile development of learning content is a process of successive approximation – getting closer and closer to what is right for the user. It means that you launch with content that is technically correct and bug-free but simple and without all the bells and whistles. You then maintain a dialogue with your customers and make little enhancements as and when ideas and suggestions emerge. Perhaps a difficult concept requires further examples. Maybe more opportunities are needed for practising a skill. Could be that an animation would be helpful to illustrate a process. No problem, you can keep on making improvements just as long as the learning remains relevant.
It doesn’t help that most e-learning content is exported from an authoring tool as a zip file and then uploaded to an LMS. This is a clunky way to deliver content. It is how websites used to work 10 years ago, before the advent of content management systems. We really should be assembling and delivering e-learning content on-the-fly, just like modern websites. That way we could build in some intelligence and personalisation – again just like the best apps and websites."

5 Killer eLearning Tips To Help You Dominate Content Chunking

5 Killer eLearning Tips To Help You Dominate Content Chunking | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
"Reading content on the Internet has changed the way people process information, and nowhere is this change more obvious than in fields where design must adapt to new technology such as in eLearning. eLearning course creators need to refine their content to suit learners’ behavior and accessibility to training. This is where chunking comes into play."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 1, 5:56 PM

If you design a course, face2face or online, it is important to keep up with information on how people learn, and today we know that chunking information is critical. This post begins by describing what a chunk is and why they are important in learning. It them moves on to the five tips (quoted below):

1. Set a chunking limit

2. Chunk with coherance

3. Use the right formatting

4. Keep chunks short

5. Use the inverted pyramid method for for prioritization

Each of these is described in detail and many addional resources are included in the post. You will also find a SlideShare on the Basics of Content Chunking. If this concept is new to you it will provide additional information. However be aware that the number of items that can be held in short term memory varies, and the rule they use is not accurate for all people. A recent course I took on Coursera, Learning How To Learn, suggested that the number of items most people can keep in short term memory is four.
