The 7 Elements of Modern Web Design - HubSpot | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert

The 7 Elements of Modern Web Design - HubSpot | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert | Gifted and Talented Training | Scoop.it
Learn about elements of modern web design and what you should be incorporating into your website.

 

Basic/ Digest...

 

Element #1: Unique Typography

Most companies have a particular family, style, and size of a font, or typography, that they used that helps their customers immediately identify them versus their competitors. In recent years the selection of fonts that they can use on their website has grown. Designers can have a broader selection of fonts to choose from on their websites.

 

Element #2: Flat Design

Flat design is known for its simplistic appearance. Instead of using three-dimensional effects and other design techniques, flat designs use simple illustrations that typically have bright colors. 

 

Element #3: Hover Effects

Hover effects help you identify where you are on a page. When you place your cursor over a part of a website that has a hover effect, it usually changes colors or highlights letting you know where you are looking.

 

Element #4: Scroll to Page Sections

Some websites have a feature where you click a link and it brings you to a different part of the page.

 

Element #5: Giant Product Images

You may have noticed that many B2B websites are starting to display large product images on their sites to highlight different features or parts of their product. This element is another important design tactic that we are seeing more and more.

 

Element #6: In-Depth Product Videos

In addition to large product images, companies are also beginning to use in-depth product videos to talk about the benefits of their products as well as new features that come out. 

 

Element #7: Large, Responsive Images

In the up-and-coming design trends post, we also discussed having large photo backgrounds. But what we didn't discuss was the importance of making these images responsive.

If you can't implement all, then at least focus on Flat and Large Responsive Images. These two have the greatest momentum right now.

Zinn Education Project

Zinn Education Project | Gifted and Talented Training | Scoop.it

Description written by Jason Tomaszewski for Education World

 

"

Educators should know going in that there is a level of self-promotion here. The Zinn Education Project supports the use of Howard Zinn’s best-selling book A People’s History of the United Statesin middle- and high-school classrooms. Accordingly, the site’s stated goal is to introduce students to a more accurate, complex and engaging understanding of United States history than is found in traditional textbooks and curricula. The site aims for students to learn that history is made not by a few heroic individuals, but by people’s choices and actions.

 

"With lofty goals such as these, it is no surprise that The Zinn Project offers a wealth of classroom materials. Lessons, activities and printables are all available for download."

Free Technology for Teachers: Infuse Learning - A Great Student Response Tool

Free Technology for Teachers: Infuse Learning - A Great Student Response Tool | Gifted and Talented Training | Scoop.it

By Richard Byrne

 

"There is no shortage of student response services that teachers can use in their classrooms. Socrative and Poll Everywhere are my two favorite. But a new service called Infuse Learning is definitely challenging for that ranking.

 

"Infuse Learning is a free student response system that works with any Internet-connected device including iPads and Android tablets. Infuse Learning allows teachers to push questions, prompts, and quizzes out to students' devices in private virtual classrooms. In an Infuse Learning room a teacher can give students a wide variety of formats in which to response to a question or prompt. Students can reply to prompts and questions in standard multiple choice, true/false, and short answer formats. But Infuse Learning also offers an option for students to reply by creating drawings or diagrams on their iPads, Android tablets, or on their laptops."

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, January 7, 2014 10:21 PM

Great UI for this look at 2014 Web Design Trends. Trends are inline with consensus including:

* Better and more artistic type online (cloud may help this too).

*  Flat design.

* Large heroes kill sliders (hope so, sliders are distracting & bad). 

* More MOBILE (thinking and design).

* VIDEO instead of text (YES).
* The LONG Scroll (already seeing this). 
* Simple colors (and NEON accents from another trends post).

* Simplified Content (lean content, visual content).
* Dropping the sidebar (especially magazine-type designs).

* Image manipulation (old is new, new old, Instagram-ization).
* More crazy cool stuff (agree cloud is going to change design and then change it again). 

Love the way they say VIDEO instead of text and I would modify to say hyper-short video (Vine-like).

Vrinda Boodram's curator insight, December 1, 2013 11:52 PM

One of the hardest aspects of being a teacher is identifying that every student learns differently. It is even harder to take this concept to the next level when you insert the concept of a "gifted and talented" student living amidst the "normal" students in a classroom. As in most most cases however, once you accept a situation and understand the process, you can adjust to anything. 

 

The adjusment process begins with understanding how to relate to know another. It is one of the hardest endeavors in this world to relate to another person, being that everyone is so unique. Luckily, the methods of trying are open to our imagination and are therefore unlimited. The points presented in this article confirm what I hold to be true. I enjoyed the approaches listed about trying to relate to the gifted and talented students in a classroom. The first and important point is to accept it. Sometimes that is the biggest part of any battle - accepting. Once you accept, then the rest of the points will come naturally.

Literary History, Seen Through Big Data’s Lens | NYTimes.com

Literary History, Seen Through Big Data’s Lens | NYTimes.com | Gifted and Talented Training | Scoop.it

Any list of the leading novelists of the 19th century, writing in English, would almost surely include Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy, Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Mark Twain.

 

But they do not appear at the top of a list of the most influential writers of their time. Instead, a recent study has found, Jane Austen, author of “Pride and Prejudice, “ and Sir Walter Scott, the creator of “Ivanhoe,” had the greatest effect on other authors, in terms of writing style and themes.

 

These two were “the literary equivalent of Homo erectus, or, if you prefer, Adam and Eve,” Matthew L. Jockers wrote in research published last year. He based his conclusion on an analysis of 3,592 works published from 1780 to 1900. It was a lot of digging, and a computer did it.

 

The study, which involved statistical parsing and aggregation of thousands of novels, made other striking observations. For example, Austen’s works cluster tightly together in style and theme, while those of George Eliot (a k a Mary Ann Evans) range more broadly, and more closely resemble the patterns of male writers. Using similar criteria, Harriet Beecher Stowe was 20 years ahead of her time, said Mr. Jockers, whose research will soon be published in a book, “Macroanalysis: Digital Methods and Literary History” (University of Illinois Press).

 

These findings are hardly the last word. At this stage, this kind of digital analysis is mostly an intriguing sign that Big Data technology is steadily pushing beyond the Internet industry and scientific research into seemingly foreign fields like the social sciences and the humanities. The new tools of discovery provide a fresh look at culture, much as the microscope gave us a closer look at the subtleties of life and the telescope opened the way to faraway galaxies.
