Learning with Thortspace - Part 1
Make ideas movable!
One of the resources we discovered while learning Anatomy and Physiology is the Carnegie Mellon Open Learning Initiative. Visit the course here.
View the sphere below to see how we have taken the ideas from this resource and mapped them to a set of movable ideas in Thortspace! This single step transforms static information in a text to something that students can interact with in different ways. Techniques for organizing and reusing information will be discussed in subsequent posts.
Read the article Seeing Ideas on the Dinner Table by Dr. Derek Cabrera in our newsletter. Dr. Cabrera's work on DSRP (Distinctions, Systems, Relationships, Perspectives) and cognitive jigs informs our work.
What can you do after making ideas movable?
Use cognitive jigs to re-arrange ideas and study them in a systematic way. Cognitive jigs will be discussed in the next article.
