Badge 3 Reflection:

How can social media tools help you visualise information for yourself and others?

 

By completing the exercises associated with this badge (Badge 3) I have acquired a vast amount of learning, all of which, can be implemented when completing assessments to aid me with my academic studies. I feel that social media tools can hugely aid oneself to help you visualise information.

 

One major way in which social media tools can help to visualise information for yourself and others is by presenting information through a clear and engaging manner to others.For example, as Desale (2017) outlines, Graphviz is open source graph visualization software. Graph visualization is a way of representing structural information as diagrams of abstract graphs and networks.

 

Another major way in which social media tools can be seen to help visualise information for yourself and others is by offering a unique twist to one’s works, rather than the traditional Word and Powerpoint presentations. For example a study conducted of powerpoint Vs Prezi proved that Prezi was a more effective instructional medium for knowledge acquisition compared with traditional instruction. (Pao-Nan Chou, Chi-Cheng Chang, Pei-Fen Lu, 2015).
