This is a great article to introduce you to the Unicorn of Death. The UoD gets attention.


The UoD has nothing to do with the "Top 15 Most Used Cliche Images in Web Design", but if I used any of the images highlighted in the article you'd skip right past this post.


In good design there has to be something of value to put your attention in a chokehold, otherwise it's cheap decoration. Design cliché's are just that.


You can thank the folks who set the standards at microstock sites like iStock, Dreamstime et,al.


From experience, I've had images rejected because they were deemed "..not stock-worthy..." Considering the images that are stock-worthy, that's not such a bad thing.

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | Digital Design for 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

Book creator has probably been the app I have used most, in my teaching, with pupils and in my training. The blank canvas aspect means it can be used across the whole curriculum and the addition of the pen tool in the last few weeks has added to that.

 

We use Showbie at school for pupils to share their work, including books made with Book Creator from the iPads and home to the teachers for assessment. Recently, we have used both the Pen Tool and Record feature to give feedback on the pupils' eBooks. The pupils send their books using Showbie and the teacher opens them up on his/her iPad. They can then annotate with their voice, pen and text. The book can then be sent back to the pupils using Showbie. The pupil can either change the original book and delete the annotated one or change the annotated book and delete the original.

 

The screenshot shows a book of a Science experiment. The teacher can annotate with arrows but also add audio feedback. All elements of Book Creator can be deleted so the pupil can restore any annotated book to the original.

 

This is obviously not a new idea but the pen tool has certainly made this quicker in a widely used app such as Book Creator.

10 Twitter Tools You Need to Check Out in 2014 | CodeCondo

10 Twitter Tools You Need to Check Out in 2014 | CodeCondo | Digital Design for 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

I consider Twitter as a marketing tool, a way of catching up with the latest news, a great way of finding new friends and partnerships, even a way of getting support from companies which just seem to ignore you, despite the circumstances.

 

It’s many different things to all of us, but one thing is for sure – it can be enhanced with the help of 3rd party tools, if only to make us smile and think back on how we began our Twitter journey.

 

I’m actually not very big on tools, at least not when it comes to Twitter, but in this year alone – I’ve been able to collect a decent list of Twitter tools that I think you’ll like, and find useful. I hope that some of these help you out in one way or another, share the list with your friends to see what they think....

Twitter Tools

UpTempo Group's curator insight, July 18, 1:33 PM

Twitter is one of the most powerful social media websites on the internet today. With nearly 255 million users, Twitter has proven to be a great way to communicate, engage, and stay connected with friends and clients. However, most users do not utilize many Twitter tools that can be beneficial for their profiles. Here is a great list of Twitter tools that optometries can use to increase their Twitter experience and brand recognition.


1. Social Rank


Social Rank is a Twitter application that helps brands and individuals find out more information about the people following them on Twitter. Social Rank provides optometries with deep analytics of their "best followers" and who they engage with the most. You get monthly reports, and it’s all carefully tailored to give you a general idea of people who might be worth reaching out to. Social Rank can be a powerful tool for small optometry practices who want to target a specific niche.


2. Fliplingo


Fliplingo is a Twitter language tool that helps you tweet in multiple languages. This is a powerful tool for optometrists to reach out to customers overseas. Fliplingo is designed to provide you with the best translation quality and increase communication with everyone around the world. Use this Twitter application if many of your customers are international.


3. Discover Twitter


Discover Twitter is a Twitter tool which new users can use to learn the basic etiquettes of Twitter. For new optometry practices, this is a very powerful took to upstart your social media presence. With Discover Twitter, you can learn the little tricks of Twitter to improve your online  presence with clients and customers.

Every day we designers meet new clients which brings along new challenges , I think a designer should be so flexible in his/ or her way of designing what we should keep in mind is the clients satisfaction if the clients is satisfied  We are satisfied too we can't impose our own ideas on people we are facilitators and we facilitate people for their needs.
