Design Lessons From Aaron Draplin

Posted on | January 15, 2015 | No Comments

I’m an educator and I would like nothing better to be able to point my students to the ultimate idea/assembly line learning textbook.

The problem is there is no one ultimate source for how-to in anything.

Yes we have best practices and yest we have textbooks and yes we have example after example of how-to but it is all about time -in and application.

Aaron Draplin has made some excellent design videos that do so many things that every student needs to be reminded of CONSTANTLY.

1. practice

2. experience

3. turn off the tech

4. look around

5. simple is good

6. it has been done before BUT can feel fresh today

7.  presentation counts




OK Aaron Draplin has passion and he isn’t afraid to let you know, even if the language is foul, but he has some great points to think about and live by!

Now you have something to think about.
