"But before you blindly jump on the infographics bandwagon and splatter your course with these visuals, make sure that you stock up on information about how they work and when to use them. Badly-designed infographics or placing them out of context can increase the cognitive load of a course. So here's the lowdown on infographics."

Kelly Christopherson's insight:

Interesting infographic. I wonder if some of this is too focused on the "tool" aspect and not looking at the key component of learning which is the relationship of learner in relation to others within the context of school. Saying technology will be used more is a given but how it will be used and in what ways will it "transform the learning" is one of the key areas for educators, students, parents and society in general.

Learning or education and the industries employing need to work together to close the gap. The cycle for updating learning cannot continue to be so great or we need to change strategies and accept the irrelevance of some of the content we deliver.

This a great list, but, perfect?  I don't know about that :)  Stories aren't a magic bullet. However, applying these elements and telling the right story+right time+right audience... can make an emotional connection with your audience that impacts your business.

Maybe a tad too complex for our young students, but still a nice way of understanding the foundations of storytelling!!
