Infographic: Citizenship in the digital age

Infographic: Citizenship in the digital age | Communication design | Scoop.it
Digital citizenship is not so different from traditional citizenship. We still need to guide students to be kind, respectful and responsible. What’s new is teaching them how to apply these values to the realities of the digital age.

This new infographic from ISTE compares a good citizen to a good digital citizen. Many students many find this poster of value as they learn the need to be a good citizen both online and offline.

As the post states, being a good citizen and a good digital citizen "are not so different from the basic tenets of traditional citizenship: Be kind, respectful and responsible, and just do the right thing."

We still have a long ways to go to figure out how to make this happen as effectively as we do face to face interactions. -Lon

Data Visualization = The New Infographic - Circos Circular Gets Your Inner Visual Geek On | Communication design | Scoop.it

How To Succeed Visually
Sorry all the low hanging fruit is long gone. If you want your website and marketing to stand out you are going to have to go high up on the tree or find another tree. Circular Data Visualization with Circos helps you create a new tree.

Yes there is some UI pain and some RETHINK pain, but that's good for several reasons:

* No Free Lunches Anymore - Everything Going To Be Painful Now.

* Learning Curve Protects The Niche WHEN You Get In.
* Like Going Down The Rabbit Hole & Pulling Cover Over As You Fall.

If you are a web designer looking for a way to REALLY rock your bosses world here's one way - tap your inner geek to create killer visual marketing.

Visual Design: Understanding Color Theory and the Color Wheel

Visual Design: Understanding Color Theory and the Color Wheel | Communication design | Scoop.it

Sometimes the toughest step in building a new website or redesign can be the conceptual ones. Selecting a color palette is one of them that can be tough if you don’t have the right tools. So where do you start?


 

It all comes down to basic color theory and the color wheel. That same tool that teachers used in school really is the basis for how designers plan and use color in almost every project from the simplest web page to expansive brands with multiple sites and campaigns...

Not an app but close enough - love it.

Elizabeth Bowden's curator insight, September 12, 2014 7:52 PM

In addition to using Lego for maths, I've taken my sons (extensive) Lego collection into History and Society & Culture to have the students (high school) demonstrate their understanding of concepts such as globalisation, communism, nationalism, capitalism. Worked really well and classes sooo happy. 

 

Having been broken up into groups and given a concept each, They created cities or environments demonstrating the concept then talked the rest of the class through. 

Ness Crouch's curator insight, September 13, 2014 4:06 PM

Fantastic ideas for using lego in mathematics. Simple hands on tasks.

The History Of Graphic Design, In Icons

The History Of Graphic Design, In Icons | Communication design | Scoop.it

Pop Chart Lab's latest poster pays homage to the most important eras in graphic design.

Start at the top, left-hand corner, of A Stylistic Survey of Graphic Design, and read from left to right. Each era (say, Arts & Crafts or Art Nouveau) is represented by a rectangular box that includes several squares that graphically represent the style described. The Modern movement, one of the largest movements depicted here, includes Bauhaus, Vorticism, De Stijl, New Typography and Istotope, Constructivism, Suprematicsm, and Futurism. Pop Chart creates, within each stamp-sized box, a visual representation of that particular style, with the design elements that prevailed at the time. So the Constructivism box echoes the intense Soviet Party posters from the 1920s, the Futurism box has a bold, attention-grabbing arrow on it, and so on.

40 Maps That Will Help You Make Sense of the World

40 Maps That Will Help You Make Sense of the World | Communication design | Scoop.it

If you’re a visual learner, then you know maps, charts and infographics can really help bring data and information to life. Maps can make a point resonate with readers and this collection aims to do just that.

A few of these maps are important to know, some interpret and display data in a beautiful or creative way, and a few may even make you chuckle or shake your head.

If you enjoy this collection of maps, the Sifter highly recommends the r/MapPorn sub reddit. You should also check outChartsBin.com. There were also fantastic posts on Business Insider and Bored Panda earlier this year that are worth checking out. Enjoy!
