A part of any job whether it be a start up, freelance or even working for a corporation is networking. These days there are so many ways to network whether it be face to face, virtual (Skype, webconferencing) or via social media (Facebook, LinkedIn).
I find it hard when I am in a creative burst, particularly when I am in ‘dream big’ phase to keep my thoughts ordered. I have recently discovered Trello. A fantastic list/organisation tool. It is fairly generic and can be used in a multitude of ways. I have separate boards for work and home, but you could create particularly boards for each of your projects!
It’s also really useful to use for group projects as you can share boards with colleagues or family members! There are also mobile apps so that you can use Trello on the go!
I probably haven’t shared to much about my work. I am an Instructional Designer which means I live and breathe, design, educational theories and engagement.
But I truly believe that without an engaging design and familiar but exciting user interface, educational theories and instructional design principles mean nothing. Hence I am an avid fan of Dieter Rams, know for his innovative designs in the 1950s and 1960s.
Dieter developed 10 rules for good design.
They are something I always try to follow when designing learning experiences.
