The Rice Process's insight:

I find infographics an effective way to present information and data. Because infographics use a combination of images, words, and numbers, it effectively communicates the content both verbally and visually. Learning concepts and relationships can easily be conveyed through a well-designed infographic. Infographics tap the verbal senses through words, phrases, sentences, and captions; and the images and graphic representations bombarded the visual senses. Consequently, 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 often present good infographics and here is someone obsessed with them with lots and lots of (some) quality links. I particularly want to think about infographics for assessment.

Absolutely correct! As we’re an infographic design company, we totally agree with you. Creating Infographic, it helps to communicate effectively with the target audience. They help brands communicate in a more powerful manner!

The Science of Character: Developing Positive Learning Traits

The Science of Character: Developing Positive Learning Traits | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

"What are your top five strengths? In the last ten years psychologists have done a lot of research into the character qualities and strengths that help people feel happy and satisfied with their lives. There’s been a similar emphasis on the personality traits that help students succeed in school by remaining engaged and motivated to learn over an extended period of time."

What character traits help people lead more satisfied lives? It turns out that neuroscience has determined that mindset makes a difference (think of growth mindset) and that there are 24 character traits that you may have (some stronger than others) that can be strengthened. The video that accompanies this post is about 8 minutes long and one that you may want to share in a faculty meeting or with students (and parents).

The organization that made this film also provides a list of resources. These resources are available at http://www.letitripple.org/character.

How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning

How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

"From reminding us of what to pack for a trip to helping doctors perform surgery, checklists are crucial for projects that require sequential steps or a series of tasks. As Atul Gawande points out in his book “Checklist Manifesto,” checklists break down complex tasks and also ensure consistency and efficiency if more than one person is working on a project."

Would like to see the list pruned to those software programs and applications in an age-appropriate list for students to use to represent/explore their own learning.  Animation makers, not consumers.
