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.

Movenote PDF to Word Free Online Mural.ly - Google Docs for Visual People How to create a Digital Publishing Culture | Connect! Over the last few weeks a few of our staff have begun experimenting with the potential of digital publishing using ePub, both for students and teachers. We are excited about the possibilities, and we imagine digital publishing being used for: Students publishing their own fiction writing within the school communityStudents creating images and videos to embed into written documents (i.e., student developed 'Khan Academy')Teachers creating integrated digital resources to share promising practices (i.e., multimedia teaching materials)Teachers creating unit guides for students (combination of text, visuals, videos and links) Why create ePubs? We have been creating our ePub documents through Apple's Pages - as it allows you to export documents as ePubs. As a way to share these materials, we have set up two websites as 'book rooms' - (unfortunately the web.me.com pages are no longer available). We have set up one wiki as a place for student-created content.

It is just the Wikimedia Foundation’s attempt to make “˜human knowledge’ accessible to everyone”¦online and now also offline. It started off with the German Wikipedia last year and now since February 26th it has moved onto the English version too.

One essential caveat is that a user has to create an account and log-on to access the book features. Logging In / Create Account The Create A Book Menu Voila!
