10 rules of photo composition (and why they work) | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

 

n photography, it’s not just what you shoot that counts – the way that you shoot it is crucial, too. Poor photo composition can make a fantastic subject dull, but a well-set scene can create a wonderful image from the most ordinary of situations.

 

With that in mind, we’ve picked our top 10 photo composition ‘rules’ to show you how to transform your images.

The Role of Rural Women in Agriculture

The Role of Rural Women in Agriculture | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

"Women are the backbone of the development of rural and national economies. They comprise 43% of the world’s agricultural labor force, which rises to 70% in some countries. In Africa, 80% of the agricultural production comes from small farmers, who are mostly rural women. Women comprise the largest percentage of the workforce in the agricultural sector, but do not have access and control over all land and productive resources. Realizing the importance of rural women in agriculture is an important aspect of gender relations. In many countries, the role of women in agriculture is considered just to be a 'help' and not an important economic contribution to agricultural production. Giving support to rural women is a way of breaking the vicious cycle that leads to rural poverty and to the expansion of slums in the cities, where the poor get poorer. Development strategies should consider rural women as the epicenter, paying special attention to their social skills both within and without agriculture sector."

While rural women play a substantial role in agriculture around the world, it is often not in positions of ownership, regional influence, and agency.  This is an article discussing how empowering rural women in the agricultural sector by changed the cultural and economic institutions that shape their work can truly change the world we live in.

Some authors talk about successful innovation being the sum of idea plus execution, others talk about the importance of insight and its role in driving the creation of ideas that will be meaningful to customers, and even fewer about the role of inspiration in uncovering potential insight.

Why Makerspaces are Changing the World - Medium

Why Makerspaces are Changing the World - Medium | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

"The real impact of makerspaces is long term and hard to grade. These spaces enable experiences that over time can significantly strengthen self-efficacy, eliminate learned helplessness, and build an internal locus of control.

 

In makerspaces I’ve seen students teach their teachers about new technologies. I’ve seen 1st graders intuit the existence of cartesian coordinate systems just by observing 3D printers move. I’ve seen kids shout “YOU JUST DISCOVERED SOMETHING!” at classmates wearing ear-to-ear smiles. Teams of runny nosed kindergarteners are crafting Mars rovers out of chopsticks and 5th graders have built freaking 3D printed prosthetic hands before my eyes."

What a great list! I already knew most of the tools listed for creating slide decks like PowerPoint, along with non-traditional tools like Prezi.


What I really enjoyed were the sections with tools for:

  • Video tools
  • Interaction tools
  • Voiceover and music resources
  • Where to share your presentations


I'm sure you will find lots of tools here for telling your story digitally. Have fun and story on!

Luego de una irrupción muy fuerte del internet y del mundo digital en nuestra vidas aparece el "maker movement" como una nueva tendencia social que pretende construir ese puente entre el mundo real y el digital (internet de las cosas). No se trata de la reminiscencia de la era del hobbista, se trata de un proceso mucho más complejo donde las nuevas tecnologías, el diseño, la programación, la electrónica confluyen en un sólo espacio para interactuar con el entorno de una manera nunca antes vista.
