How to solve a difficult problem: Work on it as long and as hard as you can. When you run into an issue that you can not figure out, walk away and do something completely different. Get a good nights rest.

After waking up or upon working on something different, you will unexpectedly get that aha moment where the answer or possible answers come to you.

 

Do not waste time struggling with an issue, let your subconscious kick in and help you figure it out.

15 New Social Media Templates to Save You Even More Time | eLearning in a ever changing world | Scoop.it

When I’m in a pinch or into something new, one of the first places I turn is toward a template. I’ve built a stash ofheadline formulas, social media updates, and more to help organize my mind when it comes to working fast and learning something new.


Templates can be a lifesaver and a time-saver.I have my favorite go-to templates, and I was also able to dig up a huge number of others, created by some really amazing folks who are generous to help us all work smarter. I’ve collected them here below. I’d love to know which ones might be useful to you!...

Elements of Learning Experience Design

Elements of Learning Experience Design | eLearning in a ever changing world | Scoop.it

The process of designing any sort of human experience, regardless of purpose or platform, is centered around reaching a desired outcome, ideally with as little fuss and as much joy as possible.

The purpose of an experience and the platform on which the experience takes place will vary: purchasing a plane ticket on a tablet to vacation, enjoying a musical performance in a theater, or learning to code in a classroom. Although each of these experiences require their own unique methods and frameworks, the elements that should be taken into consideration during the design process remain mostly the same.

 

As a learning experience designer, you should focus your time and attention during the strategy plane on identifying the gaps that exist between the learner and his/her desired outcome. Those gaps exist due to a lack of the following:

Knowledge: Do learners lack the proper information to complete a task?Skill: Do they have all of the right information but lack the ability to translate that knowledge into action that could be applied to a given situation?Confidence: Are they able to demonstrate or apply the skill, but do they hesitate or refuse to apply it?Motivation: Are they able to demonstrate or apply the skill confidently but just don’t want to do it?Access: Do they have all of the above but lack the proper tools or resources to complete a task?

Once you are able to properly identify the gaps that cause learners to struggle, you must design a solution that effectively addresses those gaps.

Just like any experiences, learning experiences also need to well designed. After deciding on outcome to be achieved of learning particular course (learning outcome), gaps to reaching the outcome should be identified at requirement plane, strategy plane, interaction plane and sensory plane. In course of doing so, gaps in knowledge, skills, confidence, motivation and access that learners may have should be addressed through course delivery, that careful planning be made through the planning, determination of objectives, implementation and evaluation stage of curriculum.

The following infographic, created by Zhenia Vasiliev, breaks down the basics of data visualization. It shows how beginners can merge form and function, and design meaningful infographics.

 

Key highlights:

-  Analyse your data: Analysis is the key. Before we can visualize the data we need to understand it.

-  Come up with a story: Story is finding a single strand of meaning in an endless sea of information. It has a beginning, middle and end.

-  Make it visible: Visualization is a creative act of making. Making the data visually elegant evident and engaging.

-  Entertain to educate: Good data design need to illuminate and inform the viewer, elucidate and illustrate the facts and stats....
