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.

Writing Is Design, Too :: UXmatters

The year is 2015. There’s a good chance you have a smartphone in your pocket—a marvelous device with which you can access, if not the sum total of all human knowledge, at least enough of it to do pretty well in a pub quiz. (For readers in the USA, that’s a bar quiz.) You can order your groceries online, buy books and movies from Amazon, and search the Web with Google and Bing. So it’s fair to say that you’re at least reasonably familiar with the Web.

Experiencing Poor Online Copy“I’m really disappointed to see—on a fairly regular basis—just how poorly people still write online copy.”

Keeping this reality in mind, I’m really disappointed to see—on a fairly regular basis—just how poorly people still write online copy.

On-Screen Proofreading: A Handbook for Editors of Academic and Scientific Articles

On-Screen Proofreading: A Handbook for Editors of Academic and Scientific Articles focuses on the professional on-screen proofreading and editing of scholarly papers. The Handbook provides practical detailed advice on the aspects of academic and scientific articles that tend to be particularly challenging for authors and editors alike. The reader is guided through the process of proofreading an article from managing files, tracking changes and adding comments in Microsoft Word to producing a clean copy ready for publication and returning it to the author. Individual chapters explain the parts of a scholarly article, their importance and their positions in a paper; outline different referencing styles and sound practices for providing complete and accurate references and quotations; discuss language and writing style with information on spelling, capitalisation, punctuation, special fonts, numbers, vocabulary, discipline-specific terminology, jargon, abbreviations, syntax, grammar and sentence and paragraph structure; and examine the effective presentation and placement of headings, tables, figures, lists and appendices. Intended to be both a step-by-step guide to the proofreading process and an informative manual to be consulted as necessary when questions and problems arise, this Handbook will be an indispensible aid to proofreaders working predominantly with digital documents in a wide range of academic and scientific disciplines, including the Social, Physical and Biological Sciences, the Humanities, Medicine, Engineering, Mathematics, Economics, Law and Management.

12 Things That Successful Leaders Never Tolerate

12 Things That Successful Leaders Never Tolerate | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

By and large, tolerance is a good trait. The differences we encounter enrich our lives and organizations. But to attain a successful life and meaningful leadership, we must refuse to tolerate the things that deplete, and ultimately destroy, us.

Start by declaring these things intolerable in yourself and those around you - and see what changes as a result.

5 Tools to Create Your Own Classroom AMA (Ask Me Anything) - FRACTUS LEARNING

5 Tools to Create Your Own Classroom AMA (Ask Me Anything) - FRACTUS LEARNING | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
An AMA (Ask Me Anything) is a two way conversation first conceived on the social networking and news website Reddit. Essentially an AMA is an opportunity for people of interest to host their own Q&A session where users are encouraged to ‘ask them anything’. Questions can range from deadly serious to utterly ridiculous, and are voted up or down by users so that the most popular questions are answered first. More than just a fad on Reddit, there are a heap of ways you can run your own version of an AMA with interesting guests in your own classroom.

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.

.

Pasi Silander, the city’s development manager, explained: “What we need now is a different kind of education to prepare people for working life.

.

“Young people use quite advanced computers. In the past the banks had lots of  bank clerks totting up figures but now that has totally changed.

.

“We therefore have to make the changes in education that are necessary for industry and modern society.”

.

Subject-specific lessons – an hour of history in the morning, an hour of geography in the afternoon – are already being phased out for 16-year-olds in the city’s upper schools. They are being replaced by what the Finns call “phenomenon” teaching – or teaching by topic. For instance, a teenager studying a vocational course might take “cafeteria services” lessons, which would include elements of maths, languages (to help serve foreign customers), writing skills and communication skills.

.

More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography.

The world around us is not labelled or divided in categories, then why is academic content? Can we not relate topics and elaborate meaning on the basis of relationships and intertwined data? 

Helen Teague's curator insight, April 13, 9:11 PM

I wonder if this would work in the U.S.? Also, in Finland, students do not take standardized tests until the end of high school (Zhao, 2012, p. 111), so thankfully, perhaps the drill and kill process is diminished.
