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.

Google Classroom opens its doors to all teachers today.

Google Classroom opens its doors to all teachers today. | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
“ As of now Google Classroom is available to all Google Apps for Education (GAFE) users. Classroom is a tool within the GAFE that allows teachers to set up different classes, set projects, assign homework to groups and grade them all within a single space. Classroom also records student grades and progress. It should be a worthwhile assessment tool once you have begun using it with your students for a couple of months. Remember, what you are using at the moment is essentially Classroom 1.0 and as such it is quite limited in it's functionality and flexibility, but so was everything in Google Apps when it was first released and Google have certainly demonstrated a commitment to upgrade and enhance their products continually. It will take you all of about 2 minutes to set up your class and get cooking so all I can suggest is give it a shot and see where it takes you. You certainly won't be wasting your time fro my brief encounter with it so far. Here are a couple of resources and links to get you started and I'd love to hear about your experiences thus far. ”

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.

This is a really compelling article that challenged me to reflect on the challenges of leadership.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, August 22, 3:25 AM

It's a very intersting topic and mostly I undersign it... though it's culture-dependent too... the context, the connotation you might have by reading e.g. this title... that  might  count too...  coming from a region where story-telling might be a substitute of lots of things, among other things, lying, or - as one of my cross-cultural researcher friend said once - saying "no", I have some reserves... but even in the Anerican culture, whether the executives of Enron e.g. weren't (surely not authentic but) excellent story-tellers? If you are with me on that... 

 

Of course, the message goes better into the deep with emotions and what is better than the story-telling like emotion-vehicle? of course... but to say that the future leader's main characteristics are courage and story-telling capacity is, I don't know, IMHO, not only simplistic but simply not enough...

 

Starting by the main point what story he/she should so well and authentically tell? What the content is of this famous story? I would start here when drawing this profile... and yes the sellability, the motivation-power, the capacity of  being able to attract the followers, to be able to align their energy are also important but somehow the content of all these has a certain priority in my mind...

S'Marie Young, CPCC's curator insight, August 22, 3:00 PM

This article highlights some of the qualities successful leaders of the present and future must cultivate, such as courage, resiliency, permeability and transparency. These qualities create a powerful presence, one that people can trust.


Presence is knowing yourself, your values, passions and goals, and being able to communicate them authentically. Presence is also being empathetic to the aspirations of others.
