How to Make Good Ideas “Stick”: Six Ways to Make Your Writing and Designs More Memorable If you’ve read Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point, then you probably remember him talking about “stickiness,” the process by which ideas stick in a global consciousness. (And if you haven’t read Gladwell’s book, go read it!) Authors Chip Heath and Dan Heath took the idea a bit further and wrote an entire book on just that idea: Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die. Stickiness is a critical design technique for causing people to remember what you make. Authors Lidwell, Holden, and Butler, who wrote the fantastic book Universal Principles of Design, identify six key areas in which you can make your ideas sticky (or, memorable, lodged in your reader-viewers’ minds). #1: SimplicityIdeas that stick are simple. #2: SurprisePeople also remember surprising information. #3: ConcretenessMessages, besides being simple, need to be concrete, clear, and use ordinary language. #4: CredibilityCredibility is complicated and affected by many factors.

Self-Publishing and the Decline of Literary Standards By Autumn ThatcherGuest Blog PostAutumn’s Blog A few weeks ago, I sat down for tea with a local musician I was interviewing for the Salt Lake Tribune. Ironically, we began our conversation by discussing writing rather than music. “Did you read that article about that 29-year-old author who is a millionaire now from publishing her own books?” my musical companion asked me, her eyebrows arched, her eyes wide and staring at me incredulously. I dropped my tape recorder in shock. My interviewee proceeded to fill me in on Amanda Hocking, a young author who indeed made millions off of self-publishing her novels on Kindle. Why do writers self-publish? I could not admit to my friend that I was secretly pondering the credibility of Amanda Hocking—and any other self-published author for that matter—because I worried that I would sound like a book snob. A once repeatedly rejected writer, Hocking became an internet sensation and a visionary for the do-it-yourselfers around the world. Ironically, Dr.

Educational Technology in ELT: Digital Storytelling I have just come back from IATEFL Glasgow 2012, where I presented on Digital Storytelling for the Technology and Teens Symposium organised by Graham Stanley. Digital Storytelling is any combination of images, text, audio and music to create a digital story, either fictional or non-fictional. The presentation focused on ways of implementing digital storytelling with teens. Some digital storytelling tools you can use: Powerpoint and Windows Movie Maker allow you to combine images, text, music and audio to create digital stories. Animoto allows you to upload images and combines them automatically with a selection of background music available on the website. Xtranormal allows you to create text to speech animations. Voicethread is a slide show creator, in which you can type or record comments around each slide. Pixton is complex comic creator tools where you can choose a template and customize it, or you can start from scratch.
