As consumers, we're positively swimming in data; it's everywhere from labels on food packaging design to World Health Organisation reports. As a result, for the designer it's becoming increasingly difficult to present data in a way that stands out from the mass of competing data streams. Get Adobe Creative Cloud One of the best ways to get your message across is to use a visualization to quickly draw attention to the key messages, and by presenting data visually it's also possible to uncover surprising patterns and observations that wouldn't be apparent from looking at stats alone. And nowadays, there's plenty of free graphic design software to help you do just that. As author, data journalist and information designer David McCandless said in his TED talk: "By visualizing information, we turn it into a landscape that you can explore with your eyes, a sort of information map.
The 5 Cs in Education: What If… Sketchnoting in the Process After my sketchnoting workshop at Miami Device, I was asked to record my process of CREATING the sketchnotes. I used Airserver to mirror my iPad display to my laptopUsed Screenflow to record myself sketching the main points of the presentationUsed Screenflow to speed up the recorded footage from 30+ minutes to 2.5 minutesExported, then imported into iMovie to add credtits and music This was the first time doing a screencast this way for me…there are a few kinks that I still need to work out (how to NOT record the screenflow toolbar). [The sketchnotes created in the video below were NOT created live, but AFTER, I had created the slide deck already} Here is the slide deck for the presentation Related Sketchnoting and Yet Another Dimension Experimenting with sketchnoting as note taking and as visual summaries and slide design has been an area of intense interest for me over the past six months. 24. In "Collaboration" Evolution of Note Taking: New Forms Note taking is a big topic among educators.
Help Them Brainstorm! 50+ Tips & Resources Posted by Shelly Terrell on Friday, December 20th 2013 Included in the Digital Tips Advent Calendar and part of the Effective Technology Integration category “An idea, like a ghost, must be spoken to a little before it will explain itself.” – Charles Dickens Brainstorming is an important process that students should do frequently so it becomes a ritual they continue throughout their lives.

A Comprehensive Guide to Content Curation Depending on your point of view, content on the internet can be a vast collection of treasures, a cesspool swimming in filth, or a big pile of gold specks mixed in with an even bigger pile of dirt. My guess is that most people lean towards the last one, giving rise to content curation, the process of finding the gold among the dirt, as a very popular online activity. At its most basic, content curation is the process of finding, organizing, and presenting content from the flood of information and media that inundate the web by the second. Content curation isn’t about creating new content, just like a museum creator has no hand in creating the artifacts she decides to put on display. It’s not about indiscriminately collecting content (that’s aggregation, like what an RSS reader does), either, just as a museum curator doesn’t simply point to any object in a warehouse when deciding which artifacts will be included for a particular show. There are many ways content curation happens online.
iPad Research in Schools Last updated on 2/5/2014 Print this page1 The Technology Enhanced Learning Research group, led by Kevin Burden (Principal Investigator) based in the Faculty of Education, has completed the first national evaluation to investigate the use and impact of tablet technologies (in this case the iPad), across schools and homes in Scotland. The study was based in eight schools and six local authorities across Scotland where iPad devices were being piloted to investigate a range of issues associated with the deployment of personal mobile devices as tools for teaching and learning. This follows the announcement and launch in May 2012 by the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning in Scotland (Mr. Findings and further details The study focused on four principal themes related to the use of mobile devices as personal tools for teaching and learning. The headlines findings from the study show that:

Aggregation and curation: two concepts that explain a lot about digital change Aggregation and curation: two concepts that explain a lot about digital change Every time I read a story about why newspapers are failing that doesn’t mention the role of aggregation and curation in their troubles, it reminds me that something very fundamental is being missed, even by very sophisticated observers. Aggregation is one of the core concepts of content presentation and commercialization. Curation is a term that has always referred to the careful selection and pruning of aggregates, such as for a museum or an art exhibition. NOcontent makes its way from its creator to the public without aggregation. Publishers are aggregators, pulling together lists of books to present a (publisher-) branded offering to bookstores, libraries, and various review media. Bookstores are aggregators, and their curation is reflected in front tables and shop windows and store sections that create a (retailer-) branded offering that consumers can navigate. What are the takeaways from this? 1. 2. 3. 4.
