Lately, I have been thinking a lot about how we explain things to each other, and what components make meaning happen. Starting next week, I’m teaching a visual communication course that I’ve been planning for, and a conversation I had today with Fahad Hassan (@FahadHassan), founder of the education data visualization company, AlwaysPrepped.com reminded me of my affinity for the explanation stylings of Lee Lefever (@leelefever) in his CommonCraft Video Series (@CommonCraft).
So I visited their blog today and saw Lee’s post about another amazing pioneer in the visual communication field, RSAnimate.
Show and tell is being displaced by: Show. DON’T tell. Check out this post of his and a neat look into the process for both CommonCraft as well as RSAnimate.
