How Can You Use Interactive Videos For Microlearning-Based Training

This is something I have been preaching for some time now and have found to be very true. We started using video as a micro learning when I was at T-Mobile about 6 years ago. It proved to be not only rapid and very cost effective but hugely effective. We need to reconsider much of what we make into elearning and use smaller bits of video or interactive content. And go mobile or social forget the LMS.

‘Latest drones on exhibition in Japan’ —

My son Evan and I have been researching & testing drones to be used for video. We have tested a few the most recently was the Phantom III for a project we are working on for realtors Jeff Coats and Allie Bailey of RainCityNW. Videos to come. So far the footage is very cool and adds a lot to the over all story and aesthetics of the videos we are doing. I believe drones offer a lot when it comes to video. Looking forward to exploring this space.

Myth busted – The Golden Ratio

5d1c4952-47e9-49f5-b0b0-429f5f5c50c7-largeI am sharing an good article that looks at the design rule called The Golden Ratio. I have always felt that where there is a rule there is an exception. When it comes to design I think it’s always good to know the rules, accept them as starting points or guidelines then follow your gut. Lets face it what people find aesthetically appealing is subjective anyways.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder right? enjoy,

Paying it forward

13Last night my wife and I watched the movie pay it forward again. What a simple concept yet so powerful. What do you think would happen to the world if we truly started a movement like that? If we treated others with love, kindness and compassion. What if we helped others and lifted them up when they needed it?

If there was ever a time when we needed a movement like this it’s now. The fact the we have to question who’s lives matter should be a big red flag. There are so may problems in the world that need our attention it can be overwhelming at times.

I believe the only way to get past this is to focus on ourselves. You can’t change others. Not even by calling them out on Facebook (sarcasm). We can’t blame republicans, we can blame the democrats and if you think it all comes down to who’s president then god help us. It’s about you! How do you treat others? Are you showing those around you how we should treat others? Who matters to you?

A Student Explains What’s Wrong With Our School System And Why We Mistrust Teachers. Nails It.

nclb-cartoonI am sure most of us would agree that the education system could use some major re-work. Many of the teachers I have talked to have expressed their frustrations to me about the focus on testing and some of the curriculum they are asked to teach. Good teachers spend a lot of time trying to comply with what they have to do and attempting to rise above this adding what they should be teaching as they can. The system is really making it tough on them not to mention the students. Most of them know what is needed and yet they have little to say in what we are doing. We need to stop basing our education systems on funding and start basing it on learning and inspiring you people to become there very best.

Lyrics of the week – Fake Plastic Trees

Radiohead – Fake Plastic Trees

Her green plastic watering can
For her fake Chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth
That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself

It wears her out, it wears her out
It wears her out, it wears her out

She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns
He used to do surgery
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins

It wears him out, it wears him out
It wears him out, it wears…

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love
But I can’t help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run

And It wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out

And If I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted all the time
