Learning Design: When You Just Don’t Know Where to Start | Mindflash | Art & Integrated Curriculum | Scoop.it

"ADDIE is good, SAM is good. DMADDI is good. AGILE is good. Rapid instructional design is good. But sometimes a course design project can be overwhelming, and these design models are not specific enough to answer the question, “OK, so what do I write on the page right now?”
In this blog post, I’d like to share some steps to take to simplify the instructional design process so you can get started right away and continue making progress until you are done..."

What to do when you just don't know what to do!  I think this is a great quick post about how you can get started in ID.  Sometimes it's so overwhelming to look at all the options and try to put them into place with your own design.  This post gives some good, quick, reasonable options for what to do when you just don't know what to do first!

100 Ideas That Changed Art

100 Ideas That Changed Art | Art & Integrated Curriculum | Scoop.it

From cave paintings to the internet, or how art and cultural ideology shape one another.

100 Ideas That Changed Art (public library) is a succinct account of the most influential developments in the history of art, from cave paintings to the internet, compiled by art historian and broadcaster Michael Bird. From conceptual innovations like negative space (#98), color codes (#33), and street art (#94) to landmarks of communication like making books (#21), propaganda (#12), and handwriting (#24) to ideological developments like “less is more” (#30), protest (#79), and the body as surface (#9), each idea is contextualized in a 500-word essay with key visual examples.

30 Infographic Resumes for Inspiration

30 Infographic Resumes for Inspiration | Art & Integrated Curriculum | Scoop.it

A few years back, presenting an infographic résumé was something completely unthinkable, even if you were applying to a job where creativity and graphic skills were important. It simply didn’t happen. Then, with the rise of the online portfolios and social networks, it became more common to present professional background and skills with a more visual appeal.

 

Today, infographics seem to be everywhere and web services will transform your social media activity and LinkedIn profile into visual displays, making it possible for those without the necessary graphic abilities to have their own illustrated curriculum.

Though popular, the resume as infographic trend is fairly new to employers, so the best option for most professionals is to look at them as a supplement to the traditional format. If you decide to create your own, look around for examples- they range from the complex to those with a more minimalistic approach. Both types can be effective, if the objective is to stand out from the crowd...

 

Visit the link for a gallery of varied and creative infographic resumes for creative and graphic design inspiration.
