It’s a great way to represent information indeed! Thanks for sharing:)
This post is based on the IATEFL opening plenary Connecting minds: language learner and teacher psychologies by Sarah Mercer (Day 2 of IATEFL 2017 in Glasgow). Watch the plenary session here.
The Human Element

This year I’ve decided to change my IATEFL blogging format and explore visual thinking tools. All posts this week will outline some ideas from the Conference and feature a number of graphic organizers/visual thinking tools that may well be used in the classroom.
A paper tetrahedron is a fantastic visual tool to show a hierarchy of concepts or ideas, or follow the Rule of 3 (3 sides, 3 main ideas, 3 supporting ideas, etc.) to structure them. You don’t need any special skills to make it (watch the video below).
Instead of tape, you may also clip together the inner sides of the pyramid with a paper clip.
Happy conferencing and happy teaching!
