Index of Learning Styles The Index of Learning Styles is an on-line survey instrument used to assess preferences on four dimensions (active/reflective, sensing/intuitive, visual/verbal, and sequential/global) of a learning style model formulated by Richard M. Felder and Linda K. Silverman. The instrument was developed and validated by Richard M. Making screencasts: The pedagogical framework - Casting Out Nines Last week I was honored to be part of the MOOC on An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching that’s currently being offered by Vanderbilt University through Coursera. Derek Bruff (who did a 4+1 interview for us last year) is one of the lead instructors of the MOOC, and he asked me to contribute three videos about my use of screencasting and lecture as part of the flipped classroom. Those videos went out on the MOOC last week, and now that the Courserians have had a week with them, I’m going to share them with you as well.
A Comparison between Concept Maps, Mind Maps, Conceptual Diagrams, and Visual Metaphors as Complementary Tools for Knowledge Construction and Sharing Martin J Eppler1 ↵Faculty of Communication Sciences, University of Lugano (USI), Lugano, Switzerland. Tel.: 058 666 45 12 Fax: 058 666 46 47. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org MY AWESOME NOTETAKING SYSTEM I accumulate a lot of notes. Some are little personal ephemera, like ideas, addresses, or sketches for poems; some are commentary about books I’m reading; some are notes I take in class. I also maintain lists of things for fun: plant names I think are cool, possible band names, titles for things, new vocabulary words. I’ve used just about every possible medium for collecting these notes: little back-pocket notebooks, giant unruled composition books, moleskines, voice recorders, and even stacks of index cards. I’ve also used a ton of different word processors and notes apps: Microsoft Word, EverNote, the iPhone notes app, and Tomboy Notes, to name a few. Each of these systems has their advantages.

Microsoft Word can help you attack the dilemma with a good old-fashioned brainstorming session. Markdown: The Syntax You (Probably) Already Know There are a lot of reasons to love plain text. We’ve mentioned some of them in earlier ProfHacker posts, such as Alex’s about JDarkRoom and Jason’s about nvALT. Briefly, plain text is a great format to use because (1) it can be read by any computer or device; (2) it’s future proof, since computers will always be able to read it; (3) it can be synced to all your devices; (4) it can be converted to virtually any format. In a future post, I plan to explain the virtues of plain text at greater length.
Introducing “An Educator’s Guide to Sketchnoting” Whenever I tell my teacher friends about my experiments here with visual note taking, most get excited for me, many end up trying out sketchnoting for themselves, and a number of them also ask about how to incorporate this skill into the classroom. To help teachers expose their students to the idea of sketchnoting, I have decided to write a guide that provides an overview of sketchnoting, explains how it can be used as a powerful learning tool, and provide suggestions for how to incorporate the teaching of this skill into classroom activities. When children first learn to write, the idea of combining words and pictures comes naturally. With time and rigid education practices, however, we lose that freedom. The activities in this guide will be designed to give that freedom back to students of all ages. I’ll be writing this book with middle school, high school, and college students in mind, but I think the activities can be applied to younger and older learners as well.
