Knowledge, Learning, Community

There is a cross-over, I think, between what David Roberts calls 'explainer journalism' and the field of online learning. And though this article focuses in depth on the former, it has a great deal to teach educators as well. "It’s not that there are no unique skills involved. There are. But experience teaches them a hell of a lot faster and better than journalism school. Your goal is to get good at gathering facts, perceiving patterns, and telling stories. And the way you get good at that the same way you get good at anything else — by doing it a lot."
