Visual Note-Taking

User Generated Education

As should be the case, there is ongoing discussion among educators about the skills that should be taught to their learners.  One such skill is note-taking.  Note-taking is typically classified as a study skill and taught as it has been through the history of institutionalized education – the outline.

When I started researching brain-compatible learning (see neuroscientist John Medina’s Vision Trumps All Other Senses),  I was exposed to the mind-map as a tool for organization, comprehension, and note-taking.  Mind-maps have several benefits:


. . .  and according to Giulia Forsythe:

As Temple Grandin says, “the world needs all kinds of minds.” and some of those minds “think in pictures”. Doodling is a form of external thought that allows you to visualize the connections you are making while thinking. In the conscious mind, doodling can assist concentration and focus but even in the unconscious mind, while doodling and day…

Investigación dentro del marco del ABP

emPLEándome a fondo

Presento primero una representación de la “Red de aprendizaje” en mi proyecto, aunque en este caso he decidido centrarla en el alumno y no en mi persona. Me parece interesante resaltar cómo, a través de un proyecto como este, no solo el docente pone en juego su red de aprendizaje, sino que también estamos ayudando a nuestro alumnado a reforzar esos vínculos y a hacerle consciente de ellos:

Red de aprendizaje

Por otro lado, presento aquí la investigación (aunque de momento sea un simple esqueleto al que habrá que dotar de contenido y forma):

¿Cuál es el título de tu investigación? 


¿Qué problema o pregunta quieres investigar? 

Uno de los problemas más repetidos en las aulas es la memorización vacía de conceptos. La falta de profundidad en el análisis que realizan los alumnos de la información.

Para intentar resolver este problema voy a…

Claudio Naranjo: repensando la educación

La educación de las hadas

En estos días de ilusión ciudadana en España contra la llamada “casta” es necesario traer a colación el pensamiento y la obra de personas como Claudio Naranjo Cohen.

eneagrama Eneagrama de la personalidad

Claudio Naranjo (Valparaíso, 1932), reconocido psiquiatra, de personalidad integradora y antidogmática, constituye lo que ahora llaman un referente mundial. En su caso sobre educación, lo que nos interesa. Fue uno de los fundadores de la corriente de la Gestalt, así como teórico del Eneagrama de la personalidad, cuyo esquema tienen supra ilustrado, y del amor y la música como terapias. Su pensamiento se centra en la educación como motor para desarrollar un mundo mejor. Cambiar la educación para cambiar el mundo: su libro más conocido.

Of MOOCs and MMORPGs — The Transformation of Education

New Images of Education


This is from an article I wrote on Medium exactly a year ago….May 2013.  For some reason it has been tweeted lately so I am reposting.  Link to full article at the bottom.  It’s still relevant.

Learning is our new hobby. Dr. Thrun’s first MOOC an xMOOC, which is what we now call what we see in Coursera et al was an experiment, which was obvious and transparent throughout the course. MOOCs are a work in progress, constantly evolving, new pedagogies and andragogies emerging, assessments and the management of massive groups of people constantly changing. Participants are tolerant. They are learners. More than half of them as of writing have undergraduate degrees, and almost as many have a masters or terminal degrees.

Where have we seen this before? Large groups of people, participating in the innovation, joining together for “projects” done with peers in the crowd? MMORPGs. We formed guilds…

Seeking examples of accreditation of non-formal learning in Europe

Art of e-learning

I am currently working with colleagues at Leicester’s Institute of Learning Innovation on a small study, nicknamed OpenCred, which will feed into the EU-funded OpenEdu project. The focus is on identifying practices in European institutions of higher and vocational education that support or enable the accreditation of non-formal learning, for example self-study via OERs or active participation in MOOCs or other types of non-formal learning. The study will also try to ascertain whether any Europe-based professional bodies recognise such accreditation, to the extent that it exists. This is an exciting area of research for me, as it follows on from the TOUCANS project in 2012, in which I looked at the emerging collaboration between post-secondary institutions in the global OERu consortium, and investigated perceptions within UK-based institutions towards this approach to widening participation in higher education. The OpenCred study will be carried out between now and November 2014.

If anyone has any information about innovative accreditation practices for non-formal…

Assailing the Castle of Resistance

Julian Stodd's Learning Blog

Corfe Castle © Julian Stodd It’s a long climb on a hot day: up the path, over the drawbridge, into the keep. Around you the ruined walls lean out over the abyss at crazy angles. Maybe twelve feet thick, leaning at thirty or forty degrees, great holes rent in the defences. One whole section has torn free: tumbling down on some historic night, rolling down the hill into the stream below. It’s the size of a minibus. Corfe Castle stands today, ruined, on it’s hill in sleepy Dorset. Bought down not by hordes of besieging soldiers but instead betrayed and lost without a fight, blown up by the victors with barrels of gunpowder. Swept away by changing times, it’s sharp edges softened by age.

Nothing lasts forever: not pyramids, temples or mountains. Not ideas, languages or suns. Things change: fail to change and we get swept away, made redundant…
