Graphic Organizers Graphic organizers (some of which are also called concept maps, entity relationship charts, and mind maps) are a pictorial way of constructing knowledge and organizing information. Increasing Understanding by Creating Graphic Organizers: The process of converting a mass of data/information/ideas into a graphic map gives the student an increased understanding and insight into the topic at hand. The creation of graphic organizers also helps the student generate ideas as they develop and note their thoughts visually. Uses of Graphic Organizers: Graphic organizers can be used to structure writing projects, to help in problem solving, decision making, studying, planning research and brainstorming.

Teaching Ideas One of the most useful techniques for revision I've come across is known as Mind Mapping. I've successfully mind-mapped with many of my GCSE Information Technology and Geography students with some great results (see later). Mind Mapping is a fun way to revise and really does seem to work well. It gives the students much more time to fit in the topics that need to be covered and, I believe, makes revision 'less boring'.

Anchor Charts Here are some other Pinterest ideas that I have made into small anchor charts. I don't know about you, but my classroom is limited on space to display all the charts that I would like to. I made this alphabet because I'm tired of the one in my classroom that takes up so much space. I hope this will be a better fit and give me room to display my sound cards as well. I got this idea from Pinterest a couple weeks ago. I give 1 student a copy each day instead of their regular morning work.

Humanize Your Data Normally when we think of data a series of “0s” and “1s” come to mind, or perhaps the twelve digits of an IP address come to mind. Let’s face it, when we normally think of data it’s normally viewed as a series of cold, hard facts. Jer Thorp wants us to change that. Yesterday, data artist in residence at The New York Times, Jer Thorp, gave a speech for TedX, independently organized Ted events, urging us to try and humanize our view of data. Among the projects Jer displays are All The Names, and Project Cascade, a New York Times initiative to help visualize the social interactions that occur (particularly sharing) that occurs on the web. He also shows off a beautiful visualization of 11,000 “good morning” tweets.

Graphic organizers guide learners’ thinking as they fill in and build upon a visual map or diagram. Graphic organizers are some of the most effective visual learning strategies for students and are applied across the curriculum to enhance learning and understanding of subject matter content. In a variety of formats dependent upon the task, graphic organizers facilitate students’ learning by helping them identify areas of focus within a broad topic, such as a novel or article. Because they help the learner make connections and structure thinking, students often turn to graphic organizers for writing projects. In addition to helping students organize their thinking and writing process, graphic organizers can act as instructional tools. Teachers can use graphic organizers to illustrate a student’s knowledge about a topic or section of text showing areas for improvement.
