Check out this in-depth infographic all about Blended Learning. Learn what it is, why it's spreading, and how it works in real and virtual classrooms | Loving this infographic from Knewton. I'm very interested in the moment in blending learning models. The actual six models in this infographic aren't particularly new, and show that blended tends to be still thought of in terms of "reduced seat time" in F2F education. The more interesting thought experiment for me is how to leverage the impulse towards "self-blending." It seems that we also need to really consider in blended environments what instructional techniques work best F2F and what works best in online. It's great to flip the lecture, then what? what is replacing the lecture in F2F and why is that better? So let's get specific: what will make the blended classroom more student-centric and more personalized? Flipping the lecture alone won't get you there. The thorny wicket of blended is developing online platforms that are truly student-centric and personalized (and no, using the LMS doesn't count).
Typography is that kind of regular things. When everything is fine with it, you don't pay much attention to the text style. But when the designer used a bad typography, you immediately notice that its hard to read, its looks bad and so on.
An understanding of typographic etiquette separates the master designers from the novices. A well-trained designer can tell within moments of viewing a design whether its creator knows how to work with typography.
