The pains & gains of being inquisitive about Information Systems
Radu JiteaLead UX Designer, Granite Digital
We interpret the world around us through the information we observe and evaluate. Information is the resolution of uncertainty, and it is our preferred way of making sense of things. It can be communicated, taught, understood, manipulated, interpreted or encrypted.
As designers of things, real or digital, we see it as a fundamental element that we shape with our tools through our craft. It is the clay that we mould in different sizes and shapes. When you apply an inquisitive mind to analyse, structure and communicate information, you immerse yourself in the beautiful world of Information Architecture. Let's dive in, shall we!
Keep your curious edge
Tayyeba Roula, Interim Deputy Director of Digital,
Mind Mapping is a powerful tool for us to learn how people comprehend, understand, and associate information. This is increasingly important in an international work environment where we have to develop content strategies that reach many people from different places in the world.
The talk focuses on what mind maps are, and how they are applied as a research tool. They provide insights into how humans are processing information and what mental associations they are making. These insights can shape a company's content strategy, the information architecture of a site, and how we communicate information in the office.
I am expanding on the topic of how humans are processing information and will explore psycholinguistics as well as cultural paradigms. Since language has the power to shape how humans process information, I want to briefly cover how two languages differ in their sentence structure and how this defines two unique thinking approaches. I will provide examples as I discuss what cultural paradigms are and how different paradigms may vary and potentially clash. These differences may lead a global company to rethink its content strategy.
