The advanced organizer is a visual learning and orientation tool given by the teacher in advance, which structures new learning content and links it to prior knowledge and competences. The advanced organizer presents the essential new contents of a lesson in a compact and comprehensible way, so that the students get a first overview of the structure and the different contents of the topic even before they start working on the material.
The advanced organizer provides an overview of
- the subject matter of the course,
- the structure of the course
- and, if applicable, subject areas adjacent to the course.
Digital realisation of advanced organizer: you can use any visualisation tool to organise and visualise the learning content, such as:
- Power Point
- Mind Maps (Mindmanager)
- Adobe Illustrator
