geogeducator : Cool #ICT tools in Humanities. 20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic. What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles. While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics. In this article, we’re listing more than 20 such options to help you get your messages across to your readers, visually. Read Also: The Infographic Revolution: Where Do We Go From Here?

Mind42 - Free, Fast and Simple online mind mapping Mural.ly geogeducator : Been using #SimCity to explore... To Remember a Lecture Better, Take Notes by Hand Students do worse on quizzes when they use keyboards in class. Psych 101 was about to start, and Pam Mueller had forgotten her laptop at home. This meant more than lost Facebook time. So she put pen to paper—and found something surprising. Class just seemed better. “‘I had a similar experience in a faculty meeting the other day,’” Mueller remembers him saying. It turns out there is. A new study—conducted by Mueller and Oppenheimer—finds that people remember lectures better when they’ve taken handwritten notes, rather than typed ones. What's more, knowing how and why typed notes can be bad doesn't seem to improve their quality. The study comes at a ripe time for questions about laptop use in class. The study was conducted in three parts. Students watched the video, completed difficult mental tasks for 30 minutes, then took a quiz on the content. So students in the second group were given a warning. The warning seemed to have no effect. via Shaunacy Ferro
