Skype is a great tool to use in learning as it provides real time engagement with experts. This a great article with ideas about thinking outside of the box when integrating Skype.

Microsoft recently showcased a new Skype feature that allows for real-time, two-way, voice translation! This feature will make the Skype Cultural Exchange even more extensible and will allow those who use Skype for non-native language acquisition to have in-depth conversations, in their own languages, about their progress and issues in their learning.

Engineers understand that failure is a part of the learning process, yet in school we tend to look at failure as a negative component of learning. Is it possible for us to look at our practice and provide opportunities for our students to learn from their failures?

Psychology of Colors, Fonts & Shape in Logo Design

Psychology of Colors, Fonts & Shape in Logo Design | iEduc | Scoop.it

A logo is the strongest symbol of a brand. It's what consumers stop at when scanning the shelves, trying to choose between 20 seemingly similar products. These signs and symbols helps people to make decisions faster, and it helps people to feel like they made the right purchasing decision.

 

That means the colors, shapes, and fonts you choose for your client's brand image are essential to not only making them recognizable but also creating a sense or trust or authority or affordability or even excitement -- whatever emotions the company wants to be associated with. Colorfast created the below infographic to detailing how influential color, font, and shape choice is when crafting a logo. Learn the science behind how we interpret these small symbols...
