Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 28, 6:24 AM

Thanks to Richard Byrne 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. 

If you have used Carrot2 the visual seen above may be familiar to you. Athenir is using Yahoo as the base for its' searches.

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.

Choosing the right eLearning methods: factors and elements

Choosing the right eLearning methods: factors and elements | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
“Many organisations are now transforming their learning and development programs to the eLearning domain. But choosing the right methods for their business based on their needs is still a challenge. Choosing the right eLearning programs depends upon many factors like proper need analysis, target audience analysis, task analysis, topic analysis, and evaluation methods. Apart from these analyses there is the very important principle of Learning Pyramid created by the National Training Laboratories. Choosing the right delivery methods directly impact effectiveness and cost benefit for the organisations.”

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.
