The originalPDI chart has been downloaded over tens of thousands of times around the world. We received feedback and input from educators who helped us revise the chart so it clarifies the differences between the terms. We welcome your feedback and to share your stories of personalizing learning.

 

If you have our older version of the chart, please replace it with this version.

How To Capture Ideas at Presentations and Events by Doing Visual Recording on the iPad

Robin Good: Rachel Smith explains in very simple words how you can use your iPad to capture and record visually the key ideas and concepts presented during a lecture, keynote, training class or presentation.

She provides a good round-up of four relevant tools that can be used for this task, analyzing their key pros and cons as well as providing logistic and technical advice on how to best organize and setup yourself for doing visual recording on the iPad.

As similar tools will provide more ready-made icons, templates and patterns available for this kind of real-time idea-capturing, this rare and pioneering visual recording work will begin to catch up even more rapidly.

 

Very useful. 8/10

Great ideas and excellent modelling from Rachel. I like her suggestion that you can practise using Youtube or TED talks and create your charts as you follow along. Amazing. Thanks for scooping, Rod!

Ciera Carr's insight:

Very interesting and true. When I learned to drive in the city that I was born and raised in, you would have thought that I had never been there. I would always get lost, but my neighborhood, I knew that place like the back of my hand simply from riding my bike and walking everywhere as a kid.

Ken Halpern's comment, March 1, 2013 1:10 PM
Even as an adult and have been in different parts of the world driving, I still remember how to get around in my home town. It's amazing how the mind can retain that type of information. I still remember the neighborhoods I use to bike through and walk in.
Gary Pascoa's comment, March 1, 2013 9:53 PM
Certainly guilty of this growing up. I have a photogenic memory when it comes to directions and getting around. I think it will only get worse in the future for kids with the advent of GPS who might not take the time to build up a solid understanding of their surroundings.
Conor McCloskey's comment, March 4, 2013 8:37 PM
Proud to say my mental maps are pretty accurate and so are my brothers, however I have two siblings that cannot say the same... I would definitely support the theory that walking through neighborhoods and riding bikes really helped to give me and my brother strong mental maps and geospatial awareness. Also, being a runner has also influenced my mental map making.

New Version of Blooms Taxonomy for iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

New Version of Blooms Taxonomy for iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | The Martin Institute | Scoop.it

"Blooms Taxonomy is one of our topical themes in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Over the last couple of years, we have been posting dozens of articles on how teachers can can apply the HOTS ( Higher Order Thinking Skills ) in their teaching. You can check the resources below to learn more.

 

In this post we worked on some iPad apps that go along with each of the skills mentioned in Blooms Taxonomy. We have based our work on the popular Poster Langwiches made before but because she missed hyperlinking the apps we tried to avoid this mistake in the table below. Just click on any app and you will be automatically directed to its homepage where you can download it." from source: http://www.educatorstechnology.com

I probably won't map them to a group of Apps, since I think creating, or evaluating, or anything can be supported by an app, but not exclusively occur within an app.

 

what's the best way of looking at place of technology in learning. some people attempt to map a technology to a pedagogy, some attempt to map apps to toxonomy, are these approaches helpful? useful? simplify to convey the affordance of technology? why?

Angela C. Dowd's comment, February 25, 2013 2:55 PM
I'm new to the idea of using apps in this way. It seems a great way to connect with technology as a first step. I received a comment on another related post by Allan Carrington and I agree with what he said..."it's not about just mapping a pedagogical method or approach to an App or a series of Apps in a sequence. It is about mapping everything back to graduate attributes, values and capabilities"

Any company, organization, or individual hoping to take advantage of digital video to educate or entertain the populace or promote a product should have a video strategy in place before springing for the time and equipment involved. Educators, of course, are not exempt from the core tenets of solidifying a viable video strategy — especially when it comes to how exactly they plan to take advantage of everything the medium offers.

7 Outstanding Free Books for your iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | The Martin Institute | Scoop.it

Below is a list of some excellent books for your iPad. I have curated this list over  the last couple of months and I kept adding to it every time I stumble upon a resource somewhere online.I don't know if you like reading books on your iPad or not but let me tell you this: having at least a couple of titles installed on your iPad would really be of great help particularly in those moments when you are stuck somewhere and have nothing to do but waiting. Reading is a habit ( luckily a good one ) that we can ACQUIRE  by force of habituation at least in the eyes of Skinnerian theory.The more you read , the fluent you get at reading and the more used your mind becomes to the act of reading.
