Erika Hall: Demystifying the Concept of Design

Erika Hall: Demystifying the Concept of Design | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Erika Hall, co-founder of Mule Design Studio: The first and perhaps only inviolable rule of design is that everything flows from the goal. Design without a goal isn’t even art. It’s just nonsensical self-indulgence. If you don’t have a clear goal, you can’t design because you will lack a rubric against which to evaluate potential decisions...

How To Create Stunning Flowcharts With Microsoft Word

How To Create Stunning Flowcharts With Microsoft Word | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

by Saikat Basu


"Thankfully, when it comes to logic, the right tools can help simplify any process. Flowcharts are among those visual thinking tools that go grossly ignored for non-technical tasks.

"But they can be used for just about anything. Best of all, you can create them using a very easy and common tool available -- Microsoft Word."

Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's curator insight, September 19, 3:37 PM


Curation is now a fashionable word. Everyone curates!


However, to get the full benefits from this practice, you need to aim for uniqueness. You want to stand out from the crowd.


Robert Caruso tells us why you should avoid sharing content from the biggest sites / blogs in the world. A hint: thought-leadership.


A great read!

Link Building: How To Do It For A Brand New Website

Link Building: How To Do It For A Brand New Website | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

“Link building” as it is traditionally defined is fraught with risks, gray-hat techniques, and dangerous mistakes. Don’t approach link building in a let’s-build-some-links kind of way.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 19, 8:12 PM

Growth mindset should be a philosophy in teaching and learning. Does it replace pedagogy? I don't think so, but I think they work together. Max van Manen's work in the area of thoughtful pedagogy fits well with growth mindset.
