Do you think racial stereotypes are false? Are you sure? I’m not asking if you’re sure whether or not the stereotypes are false, but if you’re sure whether or not you think that they are. That might seem like a strange question. We all know wha

Six approaches to visualising complexity

Six approaches to visualising complexity | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
As information designers, we often create visual representations of meaning to make hard-to-understand information (e.g. scientific information, highly technical, unknown) more accessible to a wider audience. When well-conceived, these visualisations translate complexity into a simpler way to communicate a key message. Visualisations also help understand patterns and trends represented in large and rich datasets. Broadly, the visualisation process consists of extracting meaning…

The future of Augmented Reality in the workplace
Augmented Reality (AR) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are well on their way to revolutionizing not only the way we work, but also what we – as technical communicators – deliver to customers. Coupled with improved wearable devices for hands-free work, these technologies have the power to increase productivity, efficiency and work quality.

The new frame of our enterprise information

The new frame of our enterprise information | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
The new frame of our enterprise information
With Augmented Reality, information is no longer restricted to a paper or screen. The focus of the future of information design will be on presenting information to users in context and using AR technologies. But what are its limitations and how can we exploit its opportunities?
Augmented Reality (AR), the delivery of information synchronized with the real world surrounding a user, provides an emerging alternative for providing information. By being able to access crucial information in context and in real time, the user can perform complex tasks more quickly and with fewer errors, even with no prior training or experience. By addressing only the current needs of the user, AR-assisted systems will evolve to offer other organizational benefits when implemented in enterprise knowledge products.
AR is the result of combining content, software, hardware and the physical world. When developing AR experiences for enterprise users, the designer must consider the strengths and limitations of the presentation systems available to the user.

These high-tech classes are the coolest thing happening in schools today - Tech Insider | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

"America is in the midst of a "Do It Yourself" (DIY) renaissance. Spurred on by networks like HGTV and DIY, as well as websites like Pinterest, people of all stripes are getting in on the action.

One of the hotbeds of this maker movement? Schools.

From elementary to high school, college and beyond, schools are finding new ways to use 21st-century technology to bring back shop class with a vengeance (and possibly, revolutionizing the educational experience for a new generation of students). With improved access to groundbreaking technologies like 3D printers and laser cutters, young inventors, tinkerers, builders and budding entrepreneurs can prototype and build whatever they can dream up.

In the first episode of Future Now, we'll take you behind the scenes to some of the schools on the cutting edge of, well ... cutting edges. Meet the kids using these makerspaces to invent their own futures, one 3D printed prototype at a time. "

Exploding the myth of the scientific vs artistic mind

Exploding the myth of the scientific vs artistic mind | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
It’s a stereotype, but many of us have made the assumption that scientists are a bit rigid and less artistic than others. Artists, on the other hand, are often seen as being less rational than the rest of us. Sometimes described as the left side of the brain versus the right side – or simply logical thinking versus artistic creativity – the two are often seen as polar opposites.

Neuroscience has already shown that everyone uses both sides of the brain when performing any task. And while certain patterns of brain activity have sometimes been linked to artistic or logical thinking, it doesn’t really explain who is good at what – and why. That’s because the exact interplay of nature and nurture is notoriously difficult to tease out. But if we put the brain aside for a while and just focus on documented ability, is there any evidence to support the logic versus art stereotype?

Psychological research has approached this question by distinguishing between two styles of thinking: convergent and divergent. The emphasis in convergent thinking is on analytical and deductive reasoning, such as that measured in IQ tests. Divergent thinking, however, is more spontaneous and free-flowing. It focuses on novelty and is measured by tasks requiring us to generate multiple solutions for a problem. An example may be thinking of new, innovative uses for familiar objects.

Studies conducted during the 1960s suggested that convergent thinkers were more likely to be good at science subjects at school. Divergent thinking was shown to be more common in the arts and humanities.

However, we are increasingly learning that convergent and divergent thinking styles need not be mutually exclusive. In 2011, researchers assessed 116 final-year UK arts and science undergraduates on measures of convergent and divergent thinking and creative problem solving. The study found no difference in ability between the arts and science groups on any of these measures. Another study reported no significant difference in measures of divergent thinking between arts, natural science and social science undergraduates. Both arts and natural sciences students, however, rated themselves as being more creative than social sciences students did.

Customer Experience Is A Culture Problem

Customer Experience Is A Culture Problem | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
Customer experience has undergone a dramatic transformation over the past four years. The software category matured, fragmented and is consolidating as vendors and users, alike, tried to achieve the promised ROI – revenue growth from customer loyalty. Customer experience is in the process of being redefined. It’s not software that automates engagement or predicts which customer an employee should or should not pay attention to. Customer experience is about all-inclusive strategic alignment between the customer’s engagement expectations, brand promise and the company culture behind the brand. To win, CEOs must be maniacal about that alignment.
