All You Need to Know About Infographics: Tips, Tutorials, Guides

All You Need to Know About Infographics: Tips, Tutorials, Guides | Culture XXI century | Scoop.it

Let’s be honest, we don’t like to read big pieces of text. Text-heavy graphs are rather difficult for understanding, especially when dealing with numbers and statistics. That is why illustrations and flowcharts are often used for such kind of information.

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.

 

Stop by the link for more on what defines an infographic, what contributes to its popularity, as well as the various types of infographics and references for tutorials and best practices.

Transforming the basis of knowledge

Transforming the basis of knowledge | Culture XXI century | Scoop.it

Confidence that a 'one size fits all' global economy and that the 'Western canon' of knowledge are sufficient to see humanity through the next phase of its transformations and adjustments has diminished dramatically over the past years.

We have an economic system that is certainly not a tide that floats all boats. We have challenges to the dominance of traditional knowledge claims as well. What does this mean for higher education, for social responsibility and for the way forward?

There Are Only Four Jobs in the Whole World – Are You in the Right One?

There Are Only Four Jobs in the Whole World – Are You in the Right One? | Culture XXI century | Scoop.it

For the past 30 years my company has been involved in creating over 2,500 different performance-based job descriptions that define the actual work a person needs to do to be considered successful. Based on preparing these performance-based job descriptions for jobs like camp counselor at the YMCA, accountants and engineers from staff to VPs, mid- and senior-level executives in industries ranging from automotive and aerospace to construction and consumer products, I can conclude that there are only four different jobs in the whole world.

A literature review is generally a very academic source about a topic, so this is a specific type of search

Harry Madigan's curator insight, October 3, 2014 10:14 PM

Although this piece may not be particularly lengthy, it does fit somewhat into my criteria. 

 

the review does highlight one specific aspect of my question "Collective Intelligence" which renders it significant enough to be in my top 20 sources

Wilko Dijkhuis's curator insight, October 18, 2015 3:22 AM

Interesting insight from Daphne Koller.
- MOOCs reach non-traditional students (mainly cont. edu.)
- MOOCs are excellent for experimentation with education concepts and tactics
- A new question asserts itself: What type of qualification/certification does justice to/formalizes this type of learning?
