If you’re an instructional designer, educator, SME or you’re just interested in eLearning design, this article will give you a resume of 4 essential rules for proper use of graphics in your eLearning project. At first sight it seems quite unusual that something so obvious like inserting images into your eLearning project needs special rules. But by following the findings from the cognitive theory, the right use of graphics provides better learning experiences.
Excerpt from article written and curated by Robin Good and first published on MasterNewMedia: "Content curation tools are in their infancy. Nonetheless you see so many of them around, there are more new curation tools coming your way soon, with lots of new features and options.
Enormous progress has been made since the early days of the first news curation tools to what is available today, but yet, I feel we have only barely scratched the surface.
To illustrate what I expect to see on this front, here is a panoramic tour of the traits, features, patterns and trends that I expect will characterize the future of digital content curation tools, organized into specific feature areas.
1) Display Formats of Curated Content Collections The first area in which I expect to see lots of improvement and innovative ideas is the one of how a curated collection or stream can be displayed to the user. This is one of the most underestimated and underutilized areas of improvement for content curation tools.
2) Slicing and Dicing Some of the present-day content curation tools, including Scoop.it, Spundge and several others, do allow you to tag and filter content but none provides a direct facility to easily create sub-sets that gather together collection items with the same characteristics.
3) Micro - Macro One other badly needed feature, that I hope will see its way in some of the leading content curation tools, is the ability to instantly switch from a bird’s eye view of a topic to the detailed view of a specific information item.
4) Recurate Another area that offers great opportunities for innovation and for the introduction of new useful features is the one covering the ability to assess, managing inventories, organize and curate one’s own existing assets.
5) News Discovery The main problem with news discovery arises from the fact that quality filters and algorithms capable of both fully understanding the topic of interest, not just by way of a keyword or a hashtag but by semantic inference, and capable of identifying the relevant sources among so many noise-making content marketers reposting other people stuff, are not easy to build. The best way to uncover, identify and identify new quality sources and content items may be to employ a balanced mix of automated search filters augmented by human curators that can supervise, edit, refine and improve on what is gathered by the algos.
6) Ownership The main benefit offered by content curation platforms that require you to curate and publish first via their systems (Scoop.it, Pinterest, etc.) is that they provide you with an existing broad audience readily interested in your content. For someone just starting out online, this can be a huge booster. The con side of the equation is that your rights on what you have curated as well as the physical ownership of that content is not under your control anymore. And for those already having good visibility and reputation online, this may not be the most attractive proposition.
7) Credit and Attribution For professional curators the need to properly and systematically credit and attribute the content and sources utilized is not a secondary matter. Discovery of new interesting content is at the heart of the curator job, and facilitating the exchange on meta-data that provides credit and hints as to who has been of help in discovering something will increasingly be a highly valued activity..."
"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.
The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."

"Сегодня я делюсь с вами множество тщательно отобранных приложений, которые студенты могут использовать на своих IPADS, чтобы помочь им как в планировании своих исследованиях и в их домашней работы. Используя эти приложения студенты смогут организовать свои учебные материалы, организовать их классы и курсы, отслеживать свои задания и задачи, а также совместно работать над домашними заданиями. Конечно список не является исчерпывающим, и есть несколько других приложений, которые будут добавлены к нему, но я только включены 6 самые популярные из них. "
"We’re not quite at the stage of all being cyborgs, but the wearable computing market is growing, and the number and type of devices is also increasing. One form in particular that has a great deal of potential for many hands-free uses is the HUD (Heads Up Display) mounted in the form of goggles or glasses."
