Humor is harder to write that one would think. I remember someone referring to me as a tech comm humorist at one time. I welcomed the title, but it's not something that I intentionally set out to be. Part of what is explained in this article is storytelling, and I try to do that in my own way, with my own sense of humor showing now and then. You have to be careful with humor, but if employed well in any writing, it can make a big impact. Read this article for a few guidelines that will help not only in e-learning, but also with any tech comm writing.

Terri Rice's curator insight, October 23, 2014 9:25 PM

Danielle, I think this topic is extremely hot right now. Unfortunately, it is not just parents who should foot the bill. These devices are pricey, yet school districts probably are not considering that as much as the adult board members simply are not tech savvy enough to grasp the dire need for this training.

My idea is stop funneling lottery monies to higher education and bring it down to the level of elementary and middle school age.

  That way, funds can be used for initial equipment and upgrades as well. If parents are affluent enough to afford it, great, but everyone gambles, so why not insist on those funds going to the children who get funds cut all the time. Higher Ed can definitely survive without this revenue, but obviously our children, who are the future, absolutely cannot.

 Just one mom's opinion.

I found this Scott Nesbitt article from his post on Google+, and it's excellent. I think he makes a good point. Some of the "tech-savvy" is a natural ability for some, but in the end it's really a skill that can be learned that all of us should have, especially as technical communicators. Read the whole article, and let me know if you agree with Scott's assessment. I think he's on the right track with this.

My friend Nick Kellet, who is one of the co-founders at List.ly, has posted this fantastic article that compares at social media and media platforms. This article is truly a deep-dive look, so it'll take some time to get through, but definitely worth the read. Digital media, as he points out at the beginning of his article, is always changing and shifting, and I think he does a really great job in showing how it's currently shifting and how we need to change to adapt to the current mindset. If you work or are interested in social media-related work, this is a must-read.

What do you think? Do you think that gamification is dead? I was struck most by the statement made in the quote from this article above--"Our task is to show how learning is already very much like a game and to draw out those gamelike qualities." Life isn't a game, but we find ways to make decision making challenges into something that fuels the mind instead of draining the mind when possible. This article provides an interesting perspective on the gamification "fad" and where we need to go from here using some of the same principles but in a different light.

Trisha Poole's curator insight, October 23, 2014 9:52 PM

Take all advice with a hint of caution: It is possible to take effective notes using a laptop, *if* you have the digital literacy skills to understand how to do it effectively. A common problem that arises when using laptops (or other digital devices) to take notes is that people forget to summarise what they hear and try to write things verbatim. When writing notes by hand, people are more likely to summarise and collate ideas rather than write verbatim. Digital literacy skills are important in this context, and it's also important to know that some articles might not be fully informed.

I've enjoyed chatting with Mark Baker when I've met him at conferences, and his blog certainly feels like an extension of conversations I've had with him. I've enjoyed reading the back-and-forth discussions he's had with Tom Johnson of "I'd Rather Be Writing", and this is another contribution to one of their discussions (which is a response to Tom's response for another one of Mark's blog posts). Adding links within text is a slippery slope, and I think the conversation that Mark and Tom are having in their articles, which Mark tries to summarize and address in this blog post, show that it's not as much of a cut-and-dry process as one would think. 

 

I highly recommend taking a look at this article--and the links. It's a great discussion about the use of hypertext.
