Very interesting piece. I think the use of tablets will be the critical factor. I asked a group of 20 graduates I was working with who had a tablet. The answer was NONE amazingly. That won't be the case in 2 years time.

[INFOGRAPHIC] An Overview of the Principles of Adult Learning

[INFOGRAPHIC] An Overview of the Principles of Adult Learning | Career-Life Development | Scoop.it

By Nicole Legault

 

"After humming and hawing I decided that my third instructional design/learning themed infographic would be the Principles of Adult Learning. Now, I will be honest and say that while I knew a few principles (adults have experience, adults like control over their learning experiences, etc.) I was lacking in my overall knowledge in that area. Creating an infographic is a great cure to this. I need to research, read articles and gather the appropriate information. Then I have to boil it down to its most simple form and try to find visuals that represent what I am trying to communicate. Anyways, it’s a good learning process.

I

"thought I would jump online and quickly find the “list” of the 6 adult learning principles, or whatever. No such list exists. After much reading I have come to find out that there is no actual official consensus on what the principles of adult learning are. Many are generally agreed upon, but there is still much theoretical debate going on for each proposed principle.

 

"So here’s my disclaimer: there is no proven adult learning theory and the information in the infographic below is subject to much debate and differing opinions."

The 5 reasons are:
1. You want to be the main resources in your niche.
2.You want your blog to rank in search results for particular keywords.

3. Your audience wants to know your thoughts on a particular topic.

4. The last time the topic was covered was so long ago, it’s out of date.5. You could get listed in a roundup post about a particular topic.

I do like this article because in my opinion this is exactly how I see creativity. The main thing that comes out from the video is the way to integrate creativity in people's everyday life, through the environment in which they are living. I like the idea of the term “disruptive realism” because it is for me the perfect way to catch people attention and to make them think about the message you want to deliver. We are living in a new era with new way to express and to create and what the video shows is the modernity of the creativity. Banksy in my opinion represents the perfect example of creativity thanks to his work that creates a real break between our original way of thinking, of perception and the new world we are living in. I’d like to think that these disruptions will lead us to many other experiences and different perception of our environment.

Céline Ferrenbach's comment, February 13, 2:27 PM
This video found an echo inside me and I wish people would teach you this at school. Indeed, that’s exactly what I am thinking about when talking about creativity. When I see advertising, innovative design in the streets, in malls or wherever which focus on “being different, original and fun” I just tell myself: “they got it!” And that’s what any company would want to be. Thinking out of the box, being the difference that matters, and making people smile. <br>Just as Steve Jobs put it: “Think different”. But think different does not mean being an outcast who doesn’t like to be like the others. It means that you should never take anything for granted, not even what you think you know, most of all not what you think you know! Because to me, a good leader is also someone who has as a mantra Socrate’s quote : “I know one thing: that I know nothing”. This leader is curious, eager to learn everything and he knows learning can come from everywhere, everybody. By always putting yourself and what you know into question, you avoid to get stuck in one way of thinking, as often seen. People are often stuck in a vision of the world somebody, a culture, traditions, taught them. This is a perfect way to remind them that there are always different types of perspective. <br>Staying curious is the first step to be creative. And by experimenting new approaches, “disruptive realism”, innovative design and so on, you are offering people new filters of perception they would have never thought about.
