Let’s take a journey – a journey through space. Not outer space but rather this physical universal space we’re in right now.
Consider for a moment that everything around you is billions of atoms that make up matter, and that matter is countless objects in our everyday life. The chair you’re sitting on, the computer in front of you, the simple cup you drank your morning coffee in is nothing more than matter. All that matter molded, sculpted, fabricated, constructed, etc. are (for the sake of argument) objects.
The idea is to fundamentally consider every object is first a shape that occupies space. That space defines the object by perspective, reflection of light, angle of perception, depth, shadows, color, etc. Every human being as the ability to imagine, and every human being visualizes images in their mind. The only difference is those who are open to learn tips and techniques to get them onto paper.
At AG|09 I’ll demonstrate with a few set of basic shapes and a few tips on perception that anyone can create any ‘object’ to support learning content or communicate a message in your eLearning projects.
I began working on my presentation this weekend. Yeah, I know my wife was a bit worried about me, too seeing as though AG|09 is four months away. Can’t help it…I’m excited and really looking forward to it. I started early because I can give an entire 8 hour workshop on this subject and I have a lot of material to go through.
In the coming weeks and months I’m going to try and explain more of my theory and concept here along with exercises. If you plan on attending AG|09 you’ll get a glimpse of what to expect and if you can’t or don’t plan on attending you won’t miss anything.
We are all in the learning industry in some capacity and we all know that when “The student is ready, the teacher will always appear.” If you’re ready, I’m ready!
