Learning by Making is More Humane - MAKE

Learning by Making is More Humane - MAKE | Education | Scoop.it

"Human beings learn in lots of different ways. They can learn by reading a book or by sitting in a classroom or by taking an online class. Some ways of learning are more tedious and stressful than others, though. When I was an engineering student in college, I sat in lectures for nine hours straight on Wednesdays, with no lunch break. After those nine hours of lectures, I’d study several hours to prepare for the next day. Is it any wonder I ditched engineering as my college major? There’s got to be a more humane way of learning. Learning by making is that more humane way."

I am a huge fan of Pinterest and will definitely try this out in my classroom; though Pinterest is not so well known in the UK.

I admit to knowing nothing about Pinterest, but this makes it look interesting and useful.

Interesting approach to narrative and the importance of story

Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 28, 2013 3:39 PM

If you are wondering what your personal narrative is (which BTW, is a collection of your stories) and how to articulate it, then this is a handy article to read.


Who needs a personal narrative? Anyone in business and leadership. Think career moves, leading, executive presence, personal branding, and marketing your small business -- they all require a personal narrative.


If you are thinking of your personal narrative as an item on your to-do list that you need to check off, than you will be continually frustrated at not being able to get it done.


If you approach articulating your personal narrative as a discovery process, then a treasure trove of insights and growth await you. That's the position of this article, written by Dorie Clark, that I agree with 100%. I love what she says -- this is an iterative process that takes time. But the rewards are immeasurable.


There are suggestions in the article for how to get started. But then I ran across this 11 minute video in the next curated article called "The Three Most Important Questions." Go read this article, then check out my review of the video and watch that next. 


You will have plenty to keep you busy and some solid steps to take (and resources to read) to start articulating your personal narrative.

Thought provoking. Sometimes presenters use this well, and sometimes I have sat there thinking'why do I need to know this?' This guide will help to understand when it is relevant and how to use it.
