What Kind of Learner Are You?

learningstyles001hWe all have different ways we learn best. For example, I am not an auditory learner. If you give me directions, without writing them down, I am completely lost. Why does this matter? It can help you immensely if you identify what kind of learner you are, so then you can study effectively, rather than haphazardly. This site has some good insights and tips. Check it out and see if some of them are useful. (Disclaimer: it has a tremendous amount of ads associated with it. Sorry!)

Tech Tip: Evernote


So many of my students are “plugged in” when it comes to smartphones and pads, yet I’ve noticed not many of you have the very best app around: Evernote.  Besides the Google suite this is my #1 go to app. The best part is the syncing ability which I think you will all appreciate. Check it out and download it on all your devices ASAP.

Great Presentations

Screen Shot 2014-09-03 at 2.33.15 PMAll of you have to present at one time or another. Even a simple book talk is an opportunity for you to shine in the spotlight. When I began showing TED talks in class several years ago my purpose was to expose my students to good presentation styles, in hopes that it would inspire you. I strongly encourage all of you to read this post which discusses the TED Ten Commandments. It might be helpful the next time you have to present.
