15 Visual Content Tools That Rock | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
Today I'm sharing just why it's dangerous to put your trust in copy on it's own and why visual content can create the perfect balance for your blog.

A short list of tools for creating visual content.

All of them are good, but are much more than these 15.

Great list of useful graphics tools!

SOCR: Statistics Online Computational Resource

In terms of selecting a statistical test, the most important question is "what is the main study hypothesis?" In some cases there is no hypothesis; the investigator just wants to "see what is there". For example, in a prevalence study there is no hypothesis to test, and the size of the study is determined by how accurately the investigator wants to determine the prevalence. If there is no hypothesis, then there is no statistical test. It is important to decide a priori which hypotheses are confirmatory (that is, are testing some presupposed relationship), and which are exploratory (are suggested by the data). No single study can support a whole series of hypotheses.

Here's to the crazy ones: Simon Coley on design thinking :: StopPress

Here's to the crazy ones: Simon Coley on design thinking :: StopPress | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it

I think there’s a lesson here about ‘messy’ design thinking that embraces incomplete data and ill-defined problems. By proceeding without constraints, we found we could generate more ideas and balance out inherent tensions between the creative, technical and economic. What the experience taught us is that a loose, pragmatic approach can give a more rounded result—technically, aesthetically and functionally.   

 
Sharrock's insight:

We point in so many directions except towards ourselves when it comes to change and promoting change. What have you done--professionally or personally--to apply design thinking to approach a problem?

We've Built Driverless Cars. Can We Build Their Drivers?

We've Built Driverless Cars. Can We Build Their Drivers? | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
The most dangerous moment in a self-driving car involves no immediate or obvious peril.
Sharrock's insight:

This article could be used for discussions about technology, especially for artificial intelligence, robots, and autonomous vehicles. Questions and challenges.

 

from the article: "Thrust back into control while going full-speed on the freeway, the driver might be unable to take stock of all the obstacles on the road, or she might still be expecting her computer to do something it can't. Her reaction speed might be slower than if she'd been driving all along, she might be distracted by the email she was writing or she might choose not to take over at all, leaving a confused car in command. There's also the worry that people's driving skills will rapidly deteriorate as they come to rely on their robo-chauffeurs."

The definitive guide to logo design: 55 pro tips | Logo design | Creative Bloq

The definitive guide to logo design: 55 pro tips | Logo design | Creative Bloq | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
Logo design is all around us. To the general public, logos serve as an instant reminder of a company or a product; to the client they’re the point of recognition on which their branding hangs; and to us designers they represent the challenge of incorporating our clients' ideologies into one single graphic.
Sharrock's insight:

Reading through these points doesn't necessarily create artistic talent, but it does explain a few things and gets you thinking about the thought behind designing a logo.

The American Presidency

The American Presidency | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it

The ability to communicate effectively and efficiently to the American public is one hallmark of a successful presidency. Mastering the media of the period, whether newspapers, newsreels, radio, television, or even the Internet, is crucial to a president's capacity to excite people and convey the hopes and aspirations of his administration.

 
Sharrock's insight:

This is an easy read that shares the value of communication. Secondary and post secondary students could do the opposite. They could come up with ways to inform people about specific historic events or current events. How would they use social media? YouTube? Instagram? etc.? What are some problems or challenges that come with the use of the tool? Get students thinking about the "news" they post on social networks. What were some semi-personal experiences with problems they have had? Students might get introduced to a theory or two about communications.
