SCAMPER
It can often be difficult to come up with
new ideas when you're trying to develop
or improve a product or presentation.
This is where creative brainstorming
techniques like
SCAMPER can help. This
tool helps you generate ideas for new
products and presentations by
encouraging you to think about how you
could improve existing ones.
SCAMPER is a mnemonic that stands for:
Substitute, Combine, Adapt, Modify, Put
to another use,
Eliminate, Reverse

APPLYING DESIGN
PRINCIPLES TO YOUR
TEACHING
NO LONGER AVAILABLE
The 25 Secrets To Design Every
Teacher Should Know
Educators have a lot to learn from the
principles of design
.
For example:
Hierarchy:
In a good design it’s clear what’s
most important, with a defined hierarchy
that leads viewers through elements in
order of their significance. Educators can
use this principle, focusing on what’s
most important early on in the lesson
when you’re most likely to have the
attention of your students.
