Infographics

Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly.They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends.

OneNote templates – technological teaching timesaver tools

templatesOver the last few weeks I have had numerous conversations with teachers wanting to save time and it is one of my beliefs that technology should assist with this time saving. At the same time as I have been having these conversations, I’ve also been teaching my classes. Last week I was teaching (or revising?) with my year 9’s on good graphing technique, starting with a hand drawn graph in OneNote. I found myself using the inbuilt grid line background in OneNote, counting the individual squares to make my scale – and without my glasses on this turned out to be very painful in front of the class.… Visit the author's original post

With a short learning curve to use the program or often previous experience and skills in using the popular application, PowerPoint becomes the logical choice for a number of new tasks.

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, Sway to make a summary

Sway is a brand new cloud based software from Microsoft.  In simple terms, its creates a single webpage utilising content from almost any online source – either your own cloud storage such as OneDrive, or using creative common content from Bing. It is designed as a presentation tool – think PowerPoint crossed with Presi.

The really interesting bit is how easy it is to compile and then reshape (in sway speak, remix) the content into a range of different and interesting looks, feels or navigation styles.… Visit the author's original post

Which road are you on? Reducing cognitive load with infographics, icons and signs

One of the things that I have seen really commonly, both in my own education and in the education of students I have observed, is that inability to get going on a task after it has been set.  Sometimes this is due our minds being elsewhere, other times its because we have no idea what to do, and sometimes we just don’t know where to start.  Fundamentally, the failure to start on a task is oftentimes because of cognitive load – the amount of “processing” our brains are doing – resulting in really inefficient thinking and doing. … Visit the author's original post

Just pinch me… Or ink me….

A few weeks ago I had an life changing experience whilst presenting using PowerPoint.  Its best summed up with the text I posted on the Microsoft Expert Innovators Yammer group:

“Amazeballs!!! Did you know the pinch gesture works when presenting in PowerPoint – you can zoom in, and zoom out takes you to the thumbnail slide deck so you can select non linear slides…, couple this with annotations and, well, amazeballs!!!”

I was a little excited when I wrote that!

Later on, I investigated a bit more, and put together a little how to graphic, showing the way the pinch gesture works in PowerPoint. … Visit the author's original post
