Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 26, 2014 9:00 PM

This infographic, byt Mia MacMeekin, looks at personalized learning and the three areas below. In each area the question is also "How can curriculum design address personalized learning?"

What are the three areas?

* What is personalized learning

* How to personalize learning

* Examples of personalized learning

In each of these areas she also looks at the How, What, When, Where, and Why, providing key words or phrases that help you dig a little deeper into the subject.

Mia MacMeekin has provided an infographic that you could share with others in your building. Today we are asked to personalize curriculum, but support is not always available. This visual will help you better understand some key concepts, and provide you with ideas on how you might move forward.

The Eight Principles of Connectivism (Visual)

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 16, 2014 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.

It was the “ah ha” moment, when they could examine how the delivery of content mattered and how the deliberate choices in font hierarchy, color selection, and placement changed the way others perceived the ideas."

Piktochart Infographic & Graphic Design Tool for Non-Designers [Scenttrail Review]

Piktochart Infographic & Graphic Design Tool for Non-Designers [Scenttrail Review] | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

Piktochart is an easy infographic design app that requires very little effort to produce simple and high quality graphics. Create free infographics here.

Marty (@Scenttrail) Review
I used Piktochart yesterday to create an infographic to support my 5 Easy Email Marketing Tips (http://sco.lt/7T6pTF ). I am NOT a graphic designer, but I found Piktochart helped me think like one.

Creation of my first "infographic", and I put infographic in quotes not to offend any true infographic pro, took about two hours. Piktochart's User Interface is excellent, intuitive and drag and drop friendly.

At first I tried to do everything IN Piktochart. Then I noticed they have a robust import tool so I created a draft in the tool, took a screen shot, sized the screen shot up to their 600 x 400 and worked on it in photoshop.

Piktochart, if you are reading this, you may want to make an export tool that is as easy to use as your import tool. If I could export a block at a time it would be ideal. Even when I was finished and published I manipulated some spacing of the infographic by selecting and moving blocks in Photoshop.

The tool comes complete with icons like the bulls eye and pad. I couldn't understand how to color my fonts (their styling options seem to not come up the way they are supposed too) so I added the text color in Photoshop and important the resulting block overlaying what was there.

My process made the graphic HEAVY since I had 2 copies of everything, so it would be great to export, work on a block in Photoshop, import it back in and then overlay on a blank canvas. The only way I can see to do that now is start over.

Creating visual support for our blog posts is so important Piktochart is a great new tool for any content marketer / blogger. Interesting to note my infographic of 5 Easy Email Tips got 3x the views and shares of my written Scoop. We know the visual marketing revolution is upon us, so getting as good as someone like Mark Smiciklas (http://www.intersectionconsulting.com/ ).

Piktochart is a great and timely tool! Highly recommended. Marty

Here are a few highlights:

 

Understand the 3 Types of Buyers

 

 Help customers break through "Action Paralysis" by setting minimums

 

for example: remind your customers how easy it is to get started (No payments for the first month)

 

 Understand the 3 types of buyers - 


By understanding the psychology of these 3 types of buyers, you can package your products, articulate your message in ways that speak to their listening
