Learning Design Summer Camp Concept : Education Technology Services

I really like this idea of “summer camp”. Although I never went I have visions of learning all sorts of fun things just because they seem cool. Not like school when we learn most stuff because we “have to”. I’d love to be able to find enough people near me to do something like this…for the people, by the people. Check it out!

Although not quite the same as summer camp, the program I just finished at SDSU has a few good Saturday Seminars this summer.

How do you know that they know?

A nice article by Frank Nguyen on using Captivate to build assessments. The info here could also be used in other tools. I like this chart he included about which types of questions to use for which types of learning you are trying to achieve.

PowerPoint: Before vs. After

A great look at some before and after versions of PowerPoint slides from an expert Garr Reynolds.

Most people can learn a lot from these examples.

Brain Rules

I just finished reading Brain Rules by John Medina. This is a great book about how the brain works. The website has some great intro videos and this presentation by Garr Reynolds also provides some highlights. GREAT BOOK!
