Teaching styles...

" Discussing: This is the case method of teaching, pioneered by HBS since 1908.  Students are presented with an uncertain business scenario, and spend time discussing possible solutions.  Good for people comfortable with debate and who enjoy it as a learning tool.  Not ideal for less vocal people, or those who enjoy a more practical learning process

Listening: This is the more traditional lecture-based teaching model, where students sit in class and listen to the professor.  It works well for theoretical thinkers and auditory learners, but can spell failure for people who learn by doing or who are easily distracted

Doing: This includes experiential courses, group projects, simulations, and basically any setting where practical hands-on experience (actual or simulated) is used as a teaching tool.  This is ideal for people who learn by doing, or who need to see concepts applied in practice in order to best understand them.  Yet it can be frustrating for people looking for clear concepts to learn and apply."

How is accessibility in Sweden 2014?

People with disabilities use internet as much as everyone else...

Personer med funktionsnedsättning använder datorer och internet i lika hög utsträckning som övriga.

Digital solutions that are not accessible creates problems...

"Många upplever nya hinder då mer utförs genom digitala lösningar. Webbplatser som inte är tillgängliga är ett exempel på onödiga hinder. Generellt sett ökar svårigheterna att använda digitala lösningar med ålder, något som blir en extra utmaning vid både en funktionsnedsättning och en högre ålder. Denna grupp löper extra stor risk att exkluderas."

Who are your target users?

For example. Is your target users webdesigners? Do you think that all of them are fully funtional? None has any hearing or sight disability, nor dyslexia or cognitive impairment? 

Think again:

"For me being online is everything. It's my hi-fi, my source of income, my supermarket, my telephone. It's my way in."
Lynn Holdsworth, screen reader user, Web Developer and Programmer


"I think a blind designer is totally do-able. In my art class in college we had a blind sculptor and painter who did great work. A blind designer could use basic logic of CSS to design very functional and accessible sites. I think it's a great idea and goal."

"Actually, I've just been thinking again about this issue. Who is better qualified to design a site for someone with a VI? I'd say a designer with VI!" 

"But being disabled definately gives me a passion for accessiblity and by extension, usability too. So I would say that my disability has made me a better developer. Thats not to say of course that fully sighted people can't be be a lot better!"

Arranged collections

Neatly-Arranged-Collections-by-Jim-Golden-8
Arrangements of collections support people to make sense and enjoy collections. It is a kind of story telling.  It does not to concern only things, but also information.

Some collections are explicitly made to make it easier to make a envionmentally sustainable decision.

Gröna listan is another arranged collection (to find eko furniture and make environements accessible):
