HTW will work on this more and the best way to reveal this framework
Welearn across space as we take ideas and learning resources gained in one location and apply or develop them in another. We learn across time, by revisiting knowledge that was gained earlier in a different context, and more broadly, through ideas and strategies gained in early years providing a framework for a lifetime of learning. We move from topic to topic, managing a range of personal learning projects, rather than following a single curriculum. We alsomove in and out of engagement with technology, for example as we enter and leave cellphone coverage.
Can we modify this graphic?1- Analysis would be more effective as ANALYZEChange the question to What is the purpose of the visual communication?2- CreateHow can I leverage effective visual design strategies to best communicate my message?3- EvaluateDoes the visual communicate my point properly?

What do you need your learners to remember?

Here we are introducing a strategy for organizing thoughts visually.Do we have time for a mind map activity here?Is something like mindmeister robust enough that we could set it up for people to add to it????For example, what if we start about 4 different mindmaps and have people collaborate on constructing a mind map around a question such as:“How can I design effective mobile learning to help my students engage with the content or with each other?”
Art: F-1 students, such as you, are allowed to work part-time on the school campus that issues their I-20—as long as they are maintaining their status. This type of employment doesn’t require special authorization and is limited to 20 hours per week while school is in session. You can work full-time during official school breaks such as summer, winter, spring breaks. Please refer to the Adviser’s Manual.Chapter:F-1 StudentsPart:F-1 Employments
Art: On the other hand, off-campus employment is all off-campus work. And there is a Big But--The work must be related to your field of study. In addition, you must receive special authorization for any qualifying off-campus employment opportunity.There are two types of off-campus work authorization: Curricular Practical Training (CPT) and Optional Practical Training (OPT).
The point here is LIKE ITEMS are clearly grouped with LIKE items.Use consistentColorsShapes TexturesSpatial relationshipsLine thicknessesSizesTemplates
The student can then submit the Optional Practical Training application no earlier than 90 days before graduation or start date of employment, whichever comes first. If the student is not planning ahead, s/he can submit their application no later than 60 days after date of graduation. Likewise, Optional Practical Training start date cannot begin later than 60 days after the date of graduation.
Click on the Yes button if you think Sanjay is eligible for CPT or click on the No button if you think he is not eligible for CPT
You chose that he is eligible for CPT. Bad news.Sanjay is not eligible for Curricular Practical Training. That’s because he hasn’t yet been in F-1 status for nine months and his major is engineering—which is not related to the proposed employment. Also, there is no evidence of the employment offer to Sanjay.

This slide will be used to point out the importance of the font to the overall message. Which font is most relevant to the message?
From Linda Lohr – Creating Graphics for Learning & Performancep. 87EfficiencyDoes the visual make important information easy to perceive?Is the visual organized so that information is easy to access?Does the visual help the learner relate the information to the overall learning or performance context?

ACE Framework | Analyze<br />Our short term memory stores <br />7 +/- 2 items<br />We use chunking to maximize retention.<br />
ACE Framework | Analyze<br />Sans serif font has no feet. A common sans serif font is Arial.<br />Seriffonts have feet on each letter stroke. A common serif font is Times New Roman.<br />
