Thinking About Visual Literacy - Notes From a Workshop

Dear Blog Readers,
I spent the day yesterday in a series of workshop on integrating technology into undergraduate education.

Today I am spending the day in a workshop on visual literacy. I am learning a lot and finding some really interesting resources for my teaching. Here are two you may want to explore on your own.

Periodic Table of Visual Literacy

WordCount - WordCount™ is an interactive presentation of the 86,800 most frequently used English words.
Make your guess as to the top five words before you click.
Here's where you'll find some of the my favorite words.
  • abstruse - 46,891
  • gossamer - 46,065
  • wanderlust - 69,638
Where do some of your favorite words rank?

Alright, back to work. Stay tuned for an update during our next break.
