Design Resources: Web-Based Color Tools

Design Resources: Web-Based Color Tools | Content Creation, Curation, Management | Scoop.it

One of tne of the most important things designers work with is color. Every element they draw, type, or generate with a computer, gets a color. It is impossible to create anything visual without making color decisions. And to make things harder, estimates of the total number of discernable colors range from one hundred thousand to ten million. Add issues of human perception and color vision deficiency, and you could get a headache doing anything with colors, let alone building a color scale for data.


Luckily, you have some great tools at your disposal to help with color decisions. These tools incorporate different approaches, so each one is good at slightly different things. There are two main classes of tools for dealing with color. The first class is intended to help with design decisions, and the second class covers data driven color scales.

Brand Storytelling | Social Media Today

Brand Storytelling | Social Media Today | Content Creation, Curation, Management | Scoop.it

Why does interruptive marketing and selling make our blood boil? If you answered “Because it wastes our time,” you’d be wrong. While that is definitely true, it’s not what makes us angry, because wasting time isn’t something that intrinsically upsets us. I’ll be the first to admit that at times I get lost down black holes filled with listicles, cat-befriending-dog stories (read without a tissue at your own risk) and “what we should call me” GIFs, and the only redeeming quality of that content is that it makes me happy.Telemarketers and the like drive us crazy because of one thing: their agenda.There is no story. They just want our money, and that’s not something we are generally eager to part with in exchange for what we didn’t go looking for in the first place (we’ll happily part with it if we’re just “browsing” in the aisles of Target). Inherently, we don’t want to be “sold.” We feel we’re being tricked. That’s why we avoid the people with clipboards standing in the street and the kiosk people who stare us down in the mall....

Empathy and Global Stewardship: The Other 21st Century Skills

Empathy and Global Stewardship: The Other 21st Century Skills | Content Creation, Curation, Management | Scoop.it

Quoted from post:

Empathy has always been valued as an important skill to possess as a human being, so what makes it a 21st century skill?  I was recently asked by Steve Hargadon during a short video interview, “Is global education important?  If so, why?”  My response was, “Given that we are now living in a hyper-connected world, we can no longer plead that we don’t what is going on in other parts of the world..."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 29, 2013 10:46 PM

Jackie Gerstein continues to share her thoughts on the other 21st century skills students need discussing empathy and global stewardship. After sharing her reason for combining empathy and global stewardship Gerstein somes of the characteristics or dispositions related to empathy (see image above).

You will also find a video from National Geographic, Perspectives = Empathy; a video from RSA, The Six Habits of Highly Empathic People; a list developed by the state of Washington ( specifically "a think tank for education for sustainable communities") that provides " characteristics that define folks who are equipped for sustainable futures"; a look at a connection beweeen empathy and design thinking, a look at a connection between empathy and grit as 21st century skills, and many resources for educators.

Gerstein has provided a post that will make you think about empathy and global stewardship as well as resources that may help you work with these concepts in your classroom this year.
