Ideas for "Knowledge Snacks" Marathon
« on: September 12, 2020, 11:43 AM »
Hello, Everybody!

A while ago I started a Reddit community dedicated to educational GIFs that implement the idea of microlearning or "knowledge snacks" - bite-sized pieces of educational conent that is easy to digest, post and share everywhere. However, did not have time to properly promote it at the moment.

Now I have an idea of "99 knowledge nuggets" marathon, during which I will create 99 educational GIFs on my own to provide some initial content for the community.

I am researching ideas, but the area is too vague... So I decided to ask for your help to identify 99 educational micro-content ideas that are interesting to a common curious person and could be fit in up to 5 slides. I think it should cover different areas of knowledge - not only math/physics, but also history, art, music and popular culture. I'd greatly appreciate your ideas! Thank you in advance.

Something that probably has the potential to be very popular to share on Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest would be GIFs of various DIY crafts or recipes that only need 3-5 materials/ingredients. A couple possible examples might be "how to make your own spice rack with baby food jars," or "quick and easy microwave brownies" (or other dessert).

Thank you for the idea, I will research into the recipes area too!

search google for "Daily hacks" or "Life hacks". In the end you have a minimalistic video that shows something cool or dumb :-)
