Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, June 28, 8:50 AM

Agree and disagree with some of these trends. The bright colors trend seems obvious, but not when you factor in mobile first. Mobile doesn't handle gradients well thus the great flattening of images into more traditional "web safe" colors. Mobile requires simplification across the board images included. 

That is NOT to say arresting images don't matter. Arresting images matter more than every since your content must cut through a mountain of clutter. If you're using standard stock cut luck with that "cutting through the clutter" thing. 

Better to find arresting images like the one that got my attention long enough to read and scoop this post :). Marty

Introducing Penny, an Interactive Tool for Exploring the World of Machine Learning

Introducing Penny, an Interactive Tool for Exploring the World of Machine Learning | Communication design | Scoop.it
At DigitalGlobe we spend a great deal of time focused on urban areas, where the majority of the world’s people now live, and thus where the majority of commerce, conflict, and change take place. Earlier this year an interesting thought crossed my mind: “What would a perfect city look like from space?” Would it have large open venues or lots of public transportation? Would there be an abundance of parks or the tallest skyscrapers in the world? How would this vision of idyllic urban design change depending on where in the world you were?

The Gray-Green Urban Divide: How Wealth and Poverty are Visible from Space - Geolounge

The Gray-Green Urban Divide: How Wealth and Poverty are Visible from Space - Geolounge | Communication design | Scoop.it
In many neighborhoods, income’s influence on a neighborhood can manifest itself physically in different ways.  Well paved roads and better maintained buildings are just two signs of a wealthier neighborhood.  The amount of vegetation, even in densely urban areas, can also be a predictor of the relative wealth of a neighborhood.  Known as the “gray-green divide”, the amount of trees and green space can be an indicator of the income level of the neighborhood.

What is the Gray-Green Divide?

The gray in the phrase, “gray-green divide”, refers to the dominant color from roads, sidewalks, and rooftops that strikes the viewer when looking at an aerial or satellite image of a lower-income neighborhood.  In contrast, higher-income neighborhoods tend to have more vegetation in the form of trees and landscaping that provide a “greener” view to the imagery.  The disparity is even more evident when viewing a lower-income neighborhood that back ups to a wealthier one.

Teaching 21st Century Skills For 21st Century Success Requires An Ecosystem Approach | #eSkills #ICT

Teaching 21st Century Skills For 21st Century Success Requires An Ecosystem Approach | #eSkills #ICT | Communication design | Scoop.it
It is almost universally acknowledged that in order to succeed in the 21st century, students must learn much more than the “three Rs” and basic computer competency.

 

The term “21st century skills” is used often in educational circles to refer to a range of abilities and competencies that go beyond what has traditionally been taught in the classroom, including problem solving, communication, collaboration, creativity and innovation. Others define the term as “information literacy, media literacy, and information, communication and technology literacy.”

 

More importantly, students need these skills because employers across a huge variety of industries increasingly demand them. A recent McKinsey report indicated that close to 40 percent of employers could not find people with the right skills while 60 percent “complain[ed] of a lack of preparation.” Even jobs that were once considered vocationalsuch as welding, petroleum production, and even factory work, are now high tech, and require specialized knowledge that includes not only a robust science background and familiarity with the computerized machinery that keeps heavy industry humming, but also critical thinking and collaboration skills. In other words, 21st century job growth is outpacing our ability to develop a prepared workforce, making it more critical than ever to teach these skills.

Teaching 21st Century Skills For 21st Century Success Requires An Ecosystem Approach
Chris Carter's curator insight, July 25, 7:05 PM
I am convinced now that we cannot "put new wine into old wineskins." We need to fundamentally rethink how we conceptualize "school." Bolting on new parts to the old system runs into the problem of the inertia of the old. There is so much to say here. We came into the 21st Century with a model of education that is, practically speaking, a "production" model where teachers stay in front of students and their productivity is measures by hours in front of students multiplied by number of students. The more hours and the more students, the more productive. My school is willing to explore a new paradigm, one in which teaching is modeling how to learn and guiding students toward a lifetime and lifestyle of learning . Such a mindset naturally leads to relational approaches. It is no so much about the numbers, but about learners seeing teachers as learners and learning "guild" leaders, too.

Google's New Product Could Be A Stealth Torpedo For LinkedIn - Forbes

Google's New Product Could Be A Stealth Torpedo For LinkedIn - Forbes | Communication design | Scoop.it
Google has announced a tool that will let small to medium businesses recruit more quality candidates efficiently. ‘Hire‘ is not to be confused with ‘Google for Jobs’ which Google announced last month which helps people find jobs via search easier. Instead ‘Hire’ works directly with Google’s G Suite (Gmail). 

‘Hire’ is a smart play by Google. Not only will the tool get more small businesses using G-suite (a direct competitor to Microsoft’s Office) but it also makes the whole Google product set more alluring to those wavering. LinkedIn looks almost clunky next to Hire and isn’t half as friendly as Google to small and medium sized businesses looking to save time and money. While clearly belonging to Google, small businesses get a sense of ownership they are unlikely to get with LinkedIn.

Hiring only, which makes complete sense for the SMB. I'm thinking this may be a Trojan Horse for something bigger down the road.

Bee Brains Could Help Your Camera Take Better Photos | Communication design | Scoop.it

"New research on how bees perceive colour could be put to good use in our digital cameras, meaning photos shot by drones or phones would look more natural than ever. It's all to do with colour constancy, the way that bees (and humans) can tell a flower is red no matter what the colour or quality of the light – a mental trick that the digital cameras of today really struggle with."

5 Awesome TED Talks On How Technology Is Changing Education

5 Awesome TED Talks On How Technology Is Changing Education | Communication design | Scoop.it
In the last ten years, technology has changed the way we work and communicate with others — and it’s also changed how we interact in the classroom. In fact, some educators argue that technology can improve the classroom by eliminating the need for a physical one, and allow students to learn remotely, from wherever they do their best work. While it’s still too early to know if this is the most effective way to teach, it’s important to stay-to-update on these innovations in education and see what we can learn from them. In these TED talks, students and educators share their …
