15 Effective Tools for Visual Knowledge Management Since I started my quest a few years ago searching for the ultimate knowledge management tool, I’ve discovered a number of interesting applications that help people efficiently organize information. There certainly is no shortage of solutions for this problem domain. Many tools exist that offer the ability to discover, save, organize, search, and retrieve information. Most traditional personal knowledge management (PKM) or personal information management (PIM) applications offer the same basic set of features: * Storage of notes and documents * Search functionality and keyword/tagging capability * Outline view in a traditional hierarchy, or user-defined views * Task management, calendar, and contact management (mainly PIM, not KM) These are essential features, however don’t offer too much to the more visually-inclined knowledge junkies. 15. Link: Platforms: Win, Mac, Linux Cost: Free (Open Source) 14. Tinderbox stores and organizes your notes, plans, and ideas.
CristinaSkyBox: Forms of Storytelling via GIPHY It's so simple to ask students to be creative. It's so easy to offer them a choice of digital tools and let them get on with the task of production. Quite frankly, in my experience, it is anything but simple. Anything but easy. Not only do students need scaffolding, clear instructions, clear goals and monitored team management while doing their task (in this case, if pair or small group work), they also need time to explore and play with a new tool or platform. Playfulness brings me to stories and images - both can summon up wild imaginations and/or interesting perspectives in projects, in particular when presenting ideas to solve problems. Storyform is for storytelling - an activity which learners enjoy, using their own worlds, their personal interests, their own views on a topic. Not all features of Storyform are free - however, with its ability to include text, image and video, it makes a great choice for students when they are working on a project. via GIPHY
Time travel | Intelligent Life magazine In 1914 John G. Bartholomew, the scion of an Edinburgh mapmaking family and cartographer royal to King George V, published “An Atlas of Economic Geography”. It was a book intended for schoolboys and contained everything a thrusting young entrepreneur, imperialist, trader or traveller could need. As well as the predictable charts of rainfall, temperature and topography, it had maps showing where you could find rubber, cotton or rice; maps showing the distribution of commercial languages, so that if you wanted to do business in Indonesia you knew to do so in Dutch; and maps showing the spread of climatic diseases, so that if you did find yourself in Indonesia you knew to look out for tropical dysentery. This is an isochronic map – isochrones being lines joining points accessible in the same amount of time – and it tells a story about how travel was changing. In the early 1840s an American dry-goods merchant called Asa Whitney, who lived near New York, travelled to China on business.
102 Free (or Free-to-Try) Online Collaborative Learning Tools Have You Ever Considered Making Money Online? Kelly Richards of New York was tired of worrying all the time where the next dollar would come from. Life seemed merely a succession of bills and worrying about how to pay them. I read Kelly's blog last month and decided to feature her story in our local job report. Working online has been a big break for Kelly, who struggled for months going from one dead end job to another. "I basically make $6,000-$8,000 a month online." I asked her how she discovered her secret to success. People use their computers everyday but rarely do they think of using them to make money. Another reason why a lot of people are getting interested in these automated software systems is that recently a lot of them have been released on the internet for free. The GoogleTrader site features a free automated trading software system that works with the binary option market. Remember, it’s always better to start small if you are a beginner. Here's how to get started:
