Giocando....s'impara! 

Julio Cirnes's curator insight, November 25, 2013 12:46 PM

Please teacher, more games!

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 5:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

Let’s be honest, we don’t like to read big pieces of text. Text-heavy graphs are rather difficult for understanding, especially when dealing with numbers and statistics. That is why illustrations and flowcharts are often used for such kind of information.

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.

“Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.” This actually describes the ideal for teams in a corporate context as well. You can design content and structures that keep participants engaged and motivated by using Visual Facilitation or Graphic Recording.

David Hain's curator insight, October 18, 2013 7:27 AM

Very nicely delivered, on an important topic.  We used to think of communities as places, now practice is arguably more important.
