Bret Victor is a good example of a communicator that is excellent at distillation, e.g. his posts  Media for Thinking the Unthinkable and Learnable Programming. I think his works score very high on the accessibility factor (see  the RAIN framework).

Thanks for describing your process! 🙂

I’m curious to try to transfer this approach further to ’Learning by Modeling’. Not only as in mathematical modeling but whatever technology (writing is a technology in a way) best fits the project.

If we can make authoring of explorable explanations (examples, description) more effective, I think that would be a better approach than video and images.

Heidi Grant Halvorson’s book ”Reinforcements” on some psychology of this topic is good:

Thanks for indirectly reminding me to go back and read my notes on it! 🙂

From reading the others’ answers I also made the connection to Sparkwave’s excellent ”10 Conditions for Change”: In the end helping is a behavior and e.g. making it easier and more rewarding for others to help might help a lot.

Maybe it is worth it to pay people for feedback but personally my intrinsic motivation to help would be removed by that. Depends on who you want feedback from I guess. 🙂
