“Research better. Feel better”


Via Beth Dichter
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Thanks to Richard Byrne / @Beth Dichter for sharing a post on a new search engine, Athenir.

This visual search engine provides a view that may help learners discover additional search terms, allowing them to more easily find the information they are looking for. His post (linked to by clicking his name above) explains that this is just the beginning with additional items being added over the summer. 


Providing learners access to search engines beyond Google, Bing and Yahoo is important. There are many search engines that are geared to younger students, that are more visual in nature...this list could go on. The visual component of this is colorful and allows learners to view their search in a format that many find helpful.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, December 3, 2014 10:08 PM

This is a very useful list of tools that teachers can use to make their class room pedagogy more interesting and effective. The four online tools suggested by the writer include: Piktochart, Easel.ly, Canva, and Google Draw. I personally use webcharts and flow charts with a start and stop button. It does take some time to draw the webchart on the Greenboard, so I guess it would save time to do the same before class and then present it on a screen. This can be done very effectively in the teaching of Languages. Take for example a plot line for a novel where you have a flow of events starting from the introduction, on to the ascending movement or the complication on to the climax, or the turning point and then the ascending movement on to the anti climax and then the denouement. This could be beautifully done in an infographic! Infographics are visual representations of data that can be used to depict pictorially, timelines, process of transformation in  characters in novels, flow charts, plot lines, and information!

Who better than Visual.ly to share 7 online tools that will help you create visual, be they simple images, infographics or a mind map. This post shares the following tools:

* Canva - a free tool

* Pixlr - a free tool

* PicMonkey - a free tool, but you may pay for additional tools

* Quozio - free tool

* Share As Image - a free tool, but will show a watermark; pay for no watermark

* Skitch - free through Evernote

* Coggle - free tool that allows you to create mind maps

Visuals are a key part of learning. These seven tools provide a range of options that you may want to use when designing materials for your classes (or perhaps students would find use for them in your class).
