I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, EdTech, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of the Crush School Series of Books, which help students understand how their brains process information and learn. I also wrote The Power of Three: How to Simplify Your Life to Amplify Your Personal and Professional Success, but be warned that it's meant for adults who want to thrive and are comfortable with four letter words.

How To Organize Information - Infographic

Organization is key to learning effectively. Logically organized information is easier for our brain to understand, remember, and recall. 

But chances are that our students don't know the 5 ways they can organize information because it isn't something taught in school. At least it wasn't when I was in.

In any case there's no reason not to teach them. In fact I believe we should. To make it easier I've created just the tool to help you show them.

Remember the acronym LATCH to recall the 5 ways to organize information.

Location, Alphabet, Time, Category, and Hierarchy.

They've been around.

The infographic below describes them in more detail.

I hope you enjoy it and use as you see fit.
