I have a huge backlog of resources that I’ve been planning to post about in this blog but, just because of time constraints, have not gotten around to doing. Instead of letting that backlog grow bigger, I regularly grab a few and list them here with a minimal description. It forces me to look through these older links, and help me organize them for my own use. I hope others will find them helpful, too. These are resources that I didn’t include in my “Best Tweets” feature because I had planned to post about them, or because I didn’t even get around to sending a tweet sharing them.
Here are This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
Six Characteristics of Highly Persuasive Stories is from Neuromarketing. I’m adding it to The Best Digital (& Non-Digital) Storytelling Resources.
Salvador Dali’s Creative Thinking Technique is from The Creativity Post. I’m adding it to The Best Sources Of Advice On Helping Students Strengthen & Develop Their Creativity.
Anti-Suffragette postcards is from History Extra. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Women’s Suffrage.
Why make art no-one can see? is from The BBC. I’m adding it to The Best Examples Of “Unusual” Art.
David And Goliath: The Art And Science Of The Underdog is from Farnam Street.
Political changes in the Arab world – 2002-12 is an interactive from The Guardian. I’m adding it to A Collection Of “The Best…” Lists On Egypt & Beyond.
Here are some other regular features I post in this blog:
