20 interesting goals from a new game can also be used for something entirely different: You can try to find connections between them. E.g., some are similar to others, or impact others in positive or negative ways, seem to include others, or be otherwise related. And thinking about their complex relationships can be too difficult if you only look at a linear list and most of the connections are only in your head. This might be a good opportunity to demonstrate the benefit of a think tool.
My tool is now able to import from/ export to tools that are inspired by Luhmann’s famous Zettelkasten. The magic of this was that he allowed for arbitrary branching at every point in his hierarchical numbering scheme,
I understand now better how the “magic” of my tool works: it makes associations tangible. It turns elusive mental relationships into “hands on” experience, and it compensates for the abstractness of some thought links, with a drawn line “at our fingertips”.
Comparing two other think tools with my own tool one can say that they are rather suited as the big long-term storage “cupboard” while my own tool is more like the “table” where things are put for a temporary large overview.
I often wanted to share the great experience of using my favorite tool and to show off its condensed overview. Now, a read mode format is available that can be viewed without my tool.
If you stroll around the word roots on my map, you may notice that the category #3, “Space, Position, Form”, shows particularly many items in this selection of the top 300 most prolific roots, i.e. the ones that have inspired the most new words. So what does it mean that spatial concepts were so prolific?
In the #DALMOOC course on Learning Analytics, I encountered a nice application that visualizes these terrible large Moodle forum threads. I hope that, one day, we might have a tool that can also visualize the conceptual connections between the posts.
in a little symposium called “Denkwerkzeug” (= Think Tool), in a charming location right below Frankenstein castle, it became very clear that good tools are still missing. Meantime, there is the occasion of listing my own top 10 tools.
Why do great visual thinkers still use paper and pen, and forgo the powers of an electronic canvas? Watching Dave Gray in a conversation about interaction design clarified it to me.
