PERSPECTIVE: How Playful Learning Will Build Future Leaders | Afripreneurship | Scoop.it

"In order for our global society to develop solutions to pressing problems in an increasingly technology-driven and constantly changing world, we need to re-train our workforce to do what machines can’t: to be enterprising, independent, and strategic thinkers – to be purposeful creators."

Learning through play with 'hands-on, minds-on' approaches is a powerful way forward. Play gives children space to dream, discover, improvise, and challenge convention.

The Ashoka Community's curator insight, May 14, 2014 3:50 PM

Where did play go? Lately, play is treated as an extra, not a necessity. Yet, there is a new movement taking shape that  recognizes play as a critical pathway to creativity, innovation and ultimately, any person's success in a rapidly changing world.

Digital storytelling: How to tell a story that stands out in the digital age?

Digital storytelling: How to tell a story that stands out in the digital age? | Afripreneurship | Scoop.it

"So, how do you tell a story in the digital age that stands out, captures people’s attention and gets them to act, engage with your institution? My favourite story for quite some time now and one I’ve been showing in workshops around the world is the story of the Troy public library."


Ok -- the author here isn't writing anything revolutionary. So you can skim the text. But watch the 2.5 minute video! It's the reason I selected this piece.

 

The video is brilliant -- and a perfect example of how story triggers can make a difference in social causes and social cause marketing.

 

The video is about a library. It is controversial. Now I am a big fan of libraries so I was rooting for it (my personal bias). And the video itself is a really good example of a digital story.

 

I say 'story triggers' because the library used story elements and metaphors that sparked stories within the viewer's/reader's brains. The library did not actually tell a full-blown story yet the public reaction was immediate and powerful.

 

Go watch the video! Then share what you think.
