Innovation Design In Education – ASIDE: Design Principles For Students As They Create Visual Projects And Digital Stories

More and more of students’ presentations are visual these days, from the now old school powerpoint to the newer infographic. Teaching our students about good design is becoming more and more necessary (lest you have to look at bright green backgrounds with fuchsia comic sans font taking up the whole page). The following info graphics practice what they preach about design- they are simple, elegant and get to the point.

When assigning a project with a visual component, why not use these info graphics as a sort of checklist?

Innovative design crosses over all aspects of education. The American Society for Innovation Design in Education, or ASIDE, seeks to infuse curriculum with new approaches to teaching and thinking. Integrating the design of information into the daily conversation is an essential part of the teacher’s toolkit and the purpose of the ASIDE blog. The underpinning of innovation and educational design is based on looking at the information available and communicating meaning for a world of learners. Thinking like a designer can transform the way children learn. ASIDE’s goal is to bring together as much information, resources and supportive scholarship in one place for teaching and learning.
