Between some of the games I had a go at replicating a plot from liberation.fr on the connections between Euro 2016 players and the country of birth using the circlize package in R. As with the previous post, the colours are based on the home shirt of each team and data scraped from Wikipedia. The values in the parenthesis represent the total number of players born in the respective country, which dictates their ordering around the circle. It is interesting to see just how many players represent countries that they were not born in. Only Romania has a 23 man squad completely full of players born in the country and no other Romanian born players representing other nations. I also modified some the my ggplot2 mapping code in my previous post to plot the links between players place of birth and the capital city of their national team: Click on the images if you want to explore. Here is an expanded view to illustrate all the longer distance relationships:All the code is up on my Github.
The strategy I am presenting you with today is a game changer. It has the potential to make experts out of learners and it makes learning last.You might already know the learning strategy I am talking about, because it’s been around the block. I have not invented it. I knew it before, but it was not until I took a Coursera MOOC “Learning How To Learn” By Barbara Oakley and Terrence Sejnowski that I understood its true power.So… Ask yourself: Do my students know it? And, do they know how to use it? And, do they use RECALL consistently when studying?I believe most students mainly re-read information when they study. However, even if your answer to the 3 questions above was a “yes,” you will find a few nice Recall Hacks in the Infographic below that can help you be a more effective instructor and your students learn more effectively. And, isn’t that what this whole education shindig is all about?Recall: Make Learning LastThanks for reading! I hope you find the infographic above useful. Please share it with other educators, parents, and learners. You can access the other Brain-Based Learning infographics I created by scrolling down my ED!Blog. I will feature more Brain-Based Learning teaching tools, metacognitive strategies, and posts on social-emotional learning in my future NEWSLETTERS, so please SIGN UP if you would like to receive tips that help students become better learners and you’re looking to add more weapons of mass creation to your teaching arsenal :)You Have the Power to Change the World. Use it often.
