- Creating interactive learning resources with the Glow Blogs h5p plugin
The Learning Scientists define dual coding as:
“The process of combining verbal materials with visual materials. There are many ways to visually represent material, such as with infographics, timelines, cartoon strips, diagrams, and graphic organizers. When you have the same information in two formats – words and visuals – it gives you two ways of remembering the information later on.”
Dual Coding is an excellent strategy that learners can employ to aid learning and revision, however, practitioners can employ the same strategy when developing materials for learners.
Within PowerPoint and PowerPoint Online, a number of tools can be used to better format slides for presentations or screen recordings. Tools such as designer, smart art, built in icon and image searches can help develop content in a clear, concise way.
The the Flipped Learning Network (FLN) define flipped learning as:
Basically, it is about creating learning activities that are started at home, continued in school, and then continuing this pattern of in-and-out of school learning.
