I’m planning on proposing an OER or other book related session at the upcoming IndieWebCamp New Haven next weekend. If you’re interested or want to propose other ideas for #DoOO or #EdTech, I hope you’ll join us either in-person or remotely.
Not sure what to expect at a camp? Here are some additional details for both in-person and remote attendance.
A while back I answered a question on Quora: Can people actually keep up with note-taking in Mathematics lectures with LaTeX . There, I explained…
This is awesome though I’ve also heard of cases in which students use shared Google docs to collaboratively take notes like this as well.
I’m glad that there’s some more modern research around this general idea. Of course the reliance of humans on the power of visual memory goes back to ancient Greece with the method of loci and from the Renaissance (or earlier) with the mnemonic major system.
I know both systems intimately well since the age of about 11, though I haven’t written much about them on my site. (I should fix this, though there are some related tangents within my memory category.) I did notice a large overlap with the major system and Gregg shorthand a while back, which leads me to believe that they’ve got an even richer back history than most may presume.
I’ve always been confounded that these systems aren’t better known in modern culture, though some sources have indicated that religious influences tamped down their proliferation in the 1500’s.
With Ryan Seacrest, Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, Luke Bryan. Aspiring singers in Louisville, Kentucky; Coeur d'Alene, Idaho; Los Angeles; New York and Denver see if they have what it takes to earn a coveted golden ticket to Hollywood.
The show has gone downhill a lot. They just haven’t gotten any chemistry at all. There isn’t anything interesting about any of the judges. The level of the contestants has slipped in comparison to prior years as well.
