Experiences aids continuous learning for everyone.  Starting children from an early age  is key to skill acquisition.  

 

Reading one aspect of a subject is not enough.  By the time young people reach the age of A  levels they should be well equipped with knowledge of how to acquire information - not just from what is written on a powerpoint, blackboard or whiteboard, but from their own research.:  e.g. Youtube, searching the web, chapters in books and so many other ways......

 

Have a look at different websites which point the way.  Two examples:

Competitive Intelligence: Four Pillars for Creating a Successful Sharing Strategy

 

In Pragmatic Marketing’s September webinar, Tim Rhodes, former director of competitive intelligence (CI) for Oracle, discussed the importance of establishing a CI sharing strategy and identified the four pillars necessary to establish a strong program: culture, CI structure, sharing process and tools. Companies that engage employees as a CI source learn important information about what’s happening in the marketplace. In addition, by developing a rich source of intelligence about their competitors’ products, marketing strategies and sales tactics, these companies are better prepared to respond to changes in the marketplace.

People Spend Over $9,000 On Alibaba Every Second

People Spend Over $9,000 On Alibaba Every Second | stumble upon | Scoop.it

In case you hadn’t heard, China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba just had the world's biggest IPO in history. 

But if you thought Alibaba's revenue was explosive, get this: Based on estimates from The Economist charted for us by Business Insider Intelligence, Alibaba shoppers spend an average of $9,368 each second. This is an incredible feat, especially when you consider Amazon shoppers spend less than half of that value ($3,691) each second. Users on eBay, which once tried to compete with Alibaba in China, only spend about $2,775 each second. In other words, Alibaba sells a ton of stuff, and consumers feel very comfortable buying all of it.

Study Results: There's a clear relationship between “clean” web design and user engagement.

Study Results: There's a clear relationship between “clean” web design and user engagement. | stumble upon | Scoop.it

As reported by Fast Company and Inc. Magazine, a new EyeQuant study has shown that there's a surprisingly strong relationship between the "visual clarity" of a website (as rated by an algorithm) and its bounce rate. In fact, the results suggest that up to one-third of a user's decision to stay or bounce comes down to a snap judgment of whether or not the page is too cluttered. In this post, we'll take a closer look at the data and the methodology behind the study.

Why study the impact of visual clarity?

Within the design community, there's been a definite trend towards simpler, more stripped-back design. At EyeQuant, we've seen many of our customers "de-clutter" their way to higher conversion rates, and even observed that amongst a collection of online retailers, the ones with "cleaner" design were growing the fastest.

What we wanted to understand is this: does "clean" design have a positive impact on user engagement across the board, or is it limited to specific cases like overly cluttered-sites or retail?
