Interesting article with some useful ideas.

Allan Tsuda's curator insight, September 14, 2014 9:16 PM

Excellent article. Looking for probative value. If not, you might be wasting your time, or your students' time. But at the same time, if district or school has no support, or turned-on and tuned-in leaders to provide meaningful feedback, it's all one big crapshoot. Ouch.

Good to hear, but no big surprises.

Great infographic. The original study still puzzles me with the fact that pinners don't like faces and the superiority of red color??

Rot-orange Bilder werden öfter geteilt als z.B. blaue. Hat das auch Auswirkungen aufs Grafikdesign? Sollten z.B. Logos, die Aufmerksamkeit erregen sollen immer Signalfarben verwenden?
