Zeitgeist: Visual Literacy A Spirit of our Age and Time

Zeitgeist: Visual Literacy A Spirit of our Age and Time | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Zeitgeist is German meaning a reflection of the culture of a given age or era.  Today, especially for educators, one of the 'hottest' term (whether we like it or not) is "visual literacy". This sitte provides outstanding images of 2012 for personal and/or classroom reflection and motivation. This image reflects the stand-off of Europe's fiscal cliff.  View more at this interesting site.

Incredible post with awesome and inspiring links, clearly illustrating our changing cultural reliance on visual text and visual literacy along. The photo above is one example - the Shuttle on its way to its next 'home' drives by as two ball-players are otherwise engaged.  Photo is by Wally Skalij/Getty Images and brilliantly expresses our modern culture in ways words might fall short - clearly illustrating the  communicative power of an image.

Outcome-Based Education: How Automated Mind Mapping builds student success

Outcome-Based Education: How Automated Mind Mapping builds student success | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
“Outcome-based education is a path-breaking trend in higher education that is focused on students’ demonstration of learning at the end of the course. It transforms the learning experience by convergence of various educational inputs and processes including teaching, learning, skills, competencies, course content, and instruction that is made available to students. The quality of education in institutions is rigorously tested to determine whether it is robust and effective. Programs are evaluated to ensure they deliver appropriate outcomes.The keys to having an outcome-based learning system are:”

Helping Students Leverage the Connective Power of Research – John Spencer

Helping Students Leverage the Connective Power of Research – John Spencer | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
This is why information literacy is so critical for the future of learning. If we want to see students become critical thinkers and lifelong learners, they need to be able to navigate information. But it goes beyond simply figuring out the accuracy of what they are accessing. It also involves tapping into the connective nature of their devices. In other words, I want to see students learn how to be researchers. I want to see them learn to ask great questions and find the answers through data, through reading, through videos, through podcasts, and through finding experts that they can talk to.
