When we allow external forces to be the sole adjudicators of what is ethical, we create ethical problems.

Studies Confirm the Power of Visuals in eLearning

Studies Confirm the Power of Visuals in eLearning | Safe Schools | Scoop.it

We are now in the age of visual information where visual content plays a role in every part of life. As 65 percent of the population is visual learners, images are clearly key to engaging people in eLearning courses. 

 

Moving and still images have been included in learning materials for decades, but only now has faster broadband, cellular networks, and high-resolution screens made it possible for high-quality images to be a part of eLearning visual design. Graphic interfaces made up of photos, illustrations, charts, maps, diagrams, and videos are gradually replacing text-based courses.

 

In this post, we will dig deep into some statistics and facts to further convince of why eLearning developers should embrace visuals when creating their courses.

Not just in e-learning, but as part of any learning. I have seen excellent  use of visuals as back grounds to talks as part of an e-learning course, so definitely something to remember...

When the colour white defines 'normality' - The Age

When the colour white defines 'normality' - The Age | Safe Schools | Scoop.it
“The Age When the colour white defines 'normality' The Age I now see that invisible ''whiteness'' is a one-up position; an implicit privilege that has negative consequences for those who are not white, as white implicitly defines what is ''normal''.”

New Research: Students Benefit from Learning That Intelligence Is Not Fixed

New Research: Students Benefit from Learning That Intelligence Is Not Fixed | Safe Schools | Scoop.it
New research from Stanford is helping to build the case that nurturing a “growth mindset” can help many kids understand their true potential.

 

Teaching students that intelligence can grow and blossom with effort – rather than being a fixed trait they’re just born with – is gaining traction in progressive education circles. And new research from Stanford is helping to build the case that nurturing a “growth mindset” can help many kids understand their true potential.

Chris Carter's comment, July 10, 2014 11:36 AM
Humility makes sense. Socrates knew that he was ignorant, and therefor was ready to learn. If I think that I already know a thing, or do not need to know a thing, then my mind is closed to it. All learning starts from a point of ignorance, and then move to greater approximations of understanding until mastery.
Srimayee Dam's comment, July 10, 2014 11:43 AM
Absolutely! Most are unable to do so, unwilling to learn .. Being ignorant is fine, but lack of humility won't ever help
