Video animations of Ideas, Reports and Presentations
RSA Animates are video animations of talks given at the RSA (the Royal Society of Arts – of which I am a Fellow) by notable people. They are a kind of visual minutes for people who missed the talk. They have been found to both clarify the talk and usefully summarise quite complex subjects for people coming across new ideas for the first time.
Possibly the most famous one is by Ken Robinson (author of the most watched TED talk ever “Do Schools Kill Creativity”) called Changing Education Paradigms
Other approaches… Have been identified by Creative Connections in their Social Animations proposal.
