Visual note taking

From Japan, but working in English, iroha Note takes a textual approach to visualization – or a visual approach to text notes (take your pick).

Its free version feels rather like clustering with Post-it notes, but adds the capability to freely associate notes using visible but subtle linking lines. In an optional box on the left, an outline appears to show the macro-level structure.

The paid-for version, iroha Note+, adds the capability to freely associate notes using visible Continue reading…

EducationEye presents a highly original tool for exploring curated feeds.  Its focus is on innovation in education and it organizes items visually, using colour to classify, a clever ‘paging’ arc and a form of clustering.   It is read-only, though you can submit suggestions.  There’s a search box, of course, and it offers an interesting but sometime patchy browsing experience. Give it a try! Vic Have you checked Our Faves

Eric Blue’s collection

I recently dipped a small toe in the Twitter water (@vicgee) and am starting to find some interesting sources.  It’s a stream of very mixed information – some twitterers telling us they’ve just got up (oh, really? . . . yawn), some quoting aphorisms or saying what their own thinking is just then, others pointing to interesting finds

I tried out their new offering and was delighted to find that it has tags.  I’ve long wanted to

Knowledge mapping for communities

I really liked a slideshow that comes from a group at the Open University, UK, so I did a write-up to alert like-minded thinkers.  It’s about different forms of visualizing information, knowledge, argument, debate and evidence.  I’ve done a quick write up in my Seminal papers in information mapping section of mind mapping articles. Favourite moment? This
