I came across the above diagram on Google+ recently. Having not posted much about productivity recently, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to share something I’ve found really helpful.
What I like about this is that it’s colourful, immediately obvious, and includes some stellar advice! 🙂
The author, Sharon Genovese of Learning Fundamentals, asks for a donation if you’d like to use any of her (awesome) mindmaps.
In 2009, Stephen Downes gave several presentations entitled Speaking in Lolcats. He put forward three theses:
- That New Media is a new vocabulary (and therefore people can literally speak in Lolcats)
- That languages can be understood analytically through a semantic framework
- That 21st century skills are languages (not just content + skills + tools)
Of particular interest are the six elements of ‘literacy in teh digital era’ identified by Downes:
The talk is just over an hour with another twenty minutes or so of Q&A. Well worth listening to with the slides in front of you. Doug’s mindmap notes are here.
The great thing about having a weekly slot for my Ed.D. thesis on this blog is that it forces me to produce things that I would otherwise forget about or not action. One such thing is the above mindmap (click here to enlarge) – which I’ve produced to help me with the section of my thesis I’m currently writing on the ambiguity of new literacies. 🙂
