Thing 8 - Visual Learning

Easy to use and easy to see. Gliffy works quite intuitively.

These visual representation tools can be useful for the teacher by allowing me to visually represent information. They are easy to create and customize and can be used from year to year. Visual representation tools can be used by students to create their own graphic organizers just as I described the teacher may do. Graphic organizers can be used for pre-writing organization or visually representing material. I'm glad they're available online for free.

  1. Those are some pretty creative examples! I'm pretty impressed by both the tools and how you used them to create the graphics.

    Thanks for sharing your use of some of the great resources that educators can find and use in their teaching and learning.
