“Education is what people do to you and learning is what you do for yourself,” said Joi Ito in his TED2014 talk. “You’re not going to be on top of mountain all by yourself with a #2 pencil …

 

What we need to learn is how to learn.” Indeed, traditional education may not be for everyone, but learning is.


===> Education is not a place or a deadline. It’s a practice, a habit, a part of your daily diet. <===

Learning is for everyone, but those of use who have careers and families need alternatives to traditional education. Asynchronous online education is one of the solutions.

We’ve shared other infographics on the elements of viral content and I’m always hesitant at pushing viral as a strategy. Viral content can bring brand awareness – we see that often with videos.

Beth Kanter's curator insight, July 8, 2014 10:23 AM

Very useful infographic summarizing the problems with content that isn't being shared and how to solve that problem.  I like the good practical tips for creating more "emotionally charged" content.   The other main points:


  • Lack of emotional appeal – people share content that generates curiosity, amazement, interest, astonishment, uncertainty, admiration and humor.
  • Not “Share Worthy” – people want to share it, it’s easy to share, it provides value, and it’s going to draw attention to those who share it.
  • Bad Timing – find the times of the day, week, season or event that the content is in demand and popular.
  • Poor Design – the layout, colors and visual appeal matters when it comes to sharable content. An investment in design is an investment in the likelihood it will be shared.
  • Poor Distribution – this is probably the one we see least deployed… distribute and promote your content across sites where it’s going to reach a large audience.

How A Genius Thinks

How A Genius Thinks | Words of Wisdom | Scoop.it
'However, while many people define genius differently, most agree that Richard Feynman was one and there is probably no better example of his brilliance than his famous talk, There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom. It not only launched a revolution in physics and engineering that is still being played out today, it shows us how a true genius really thinks.'

A Complex Problem Posed Simply...

Gust MEES's curator insight, July 7, 2014 10:49 AM

The simplest ways of expression are the BEST ways! Remember "Albert EINSTEIN": ===> If YOU can't explain it to a six year old, YOU don't understand it YOURSELF! <===


objectplace's curator insight, July 8, 2014 11:16 AM

more than just a great genius thinker Feynman also has the gift of describing and simplifying big ideas in an approachable, beautiful way.
