  • Most students today would be classified as bodily-kinesthetic learners.
    • Miss OConnor

      I would agree - making this assumption leads to other assumptions that have no scientific basis. It's a reaction to a supposed change in student learning behaviors. But it is the kind of statement that let's technology advocates jump on the bandwagon and sell their technology.

Information is beautiful - 147 views

  •  
    From a review by Alice Yoo (here: http://mylifescoop.com/featured-stories/2011/05/top-6-sites-that-inspire-and-educate.html) "Information is Beautiful was started by London-based writer and designer David McCandless. It's a blog that takes information - facts, data, ideas - and turns it into well-designed charts, graphs and data visualizations. Relevant to not just designers but anyone who appreciates statistics and facts, this site will not only keep you entertained, it will educate you on the world we live in." Love infographics - love to be able to do them as well as these people!
