In my world, this can be as simple as explaining to a client why screens of text with an out-of-sync voice over will not be effective—to more complex issues, such as determining whether an animation will promote greater comprehension than a series of stills. Although we know it can be advantageous to present content through multiple forms of media, the big question is how to integrate the mediums. When deciding on these issues, I use two principles from cognitive science as guidelines that I think you’ll find helpful too. Split-attention Effect Separating a visual from text can be cognitively demanding. The split-attention effect occurs when a person is required to process two or more varied sources of information simultaneously, either of which can’t be understood in isolation. See the example showing the effects of secondhand smoke, produced by the Centers for Disease Control, on the right. The Fixes

Six Ways To Make Collaboration Work The other day, I went with my granddaughter to the playground and watched her as she dove happily into play with the other children. I envied her ability to simply become part of the group. It was lovely to see the easy cooperation that danced among them as they shared the various pieces of playground equipment and discussed the merits of this climbing apparatus over that. It was then I began to think about collaboration and what it means. Some people think that collaboration is just like that… playing and working together cooperatively for a common purpose. In the case of the children in the playground that purpose is simply to have fun. Randy Nelson, Dean of Pixar University made reference to this in a keynote speech he made about collaboration.

Theory[edit] Criminology[edit] Tarde took an interest in criminology and the psychological basis of criminal behavior while working as a magistrate in public service. He was critical of the concept of the atavistic criminal as developed by Cesare Lombroso.[1] Tarde's criminological studies served as the underpinning of his later sociology.[2] Tarde also emphasised the tendency of the criminal to return to the scene of the crime and to repeat it, which he saw as part of a wider process of repetition compulsion.[4] Imitation[edit] Tarde highlighted the importance of the creative exemplar in society, arguing that "genius is the capacity to engender one's own progeny".[6] Science Fiction[edit]
