The Forgotten Female Programmers Who Created Modern Tech

The Forgotten Female Programmers Who Created Modern Tech | Education, Technology and Storytelling | Scoop.it
The Innovators, Walter Isaacson's new book, tells the stories of the people who created modern computers. Women, who are now a minority in computer science, played an outsize role in that history.
Patricia Stitson's insight:

One of the most innovative women out there couldn't get her prototype created simply because she could not gather the right team to make it happen.

 

As hero's, as warrior's we often try to 'do it all' ourselves.  This is often detrimental to our project.  Finding the right people to support you starts off with understanding the best story to tell.  Not a story of 'I cannot do it myself - thus positioning yourself as a victim - but rather 'I understand my highest strength and I also recognize that, for best of my product, project, or organization, I need to find people who highest strengths compliment my own in the development of this task.'  The latter is not a story of defeat but one of leadership. 

 

How often do we see the former in the workplace?  The great 'pass off'.  Frankly I've seen women play that 'oh woe is me' card in order to garner support.  Heck - I've done it.  But in the long run I've learned that team building is one of the most difficult yet crucial tasks in launching multiple sets of task meant to result in a specific goal.  The key is multiple sets.  You really cannot do it all yourself and do it well.

Now this is very interesting. We all know that our business stories are crafted to move people to action. But how does that happen really really, and how do you measure or evaluate it?


Here comes along Participant Media, an activist entertainment company to answer these vexing questions. They are developing a measuring tool to determine emotional response and level of engagement to films (stories).


There's still a way to go, but we should keep this on our radar screen for its application to business storytelling. Learn more about what's happening, the tool they are developing, and what's in store for us in the future by reading this post.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 21, 12:43 PM

Here's a handy, quick and dirty chart to keep in mind when advocating for storytelling in an organization. It covers all the salient points.


The only BIG piece I would add in the "Educate" category is -- give executives an experience! Don't tell them about storytelling, have them directly experience it themselves. Then debrief the experience so they get not only how it works, but the benefits. That's the magic that's been working for me for years.


So add "experience storytelling" into the mix and you will have greater success.

michaelpohl360's curator insight, May 23, 2:39 AM

Here's a process on how to establish storytelling as a skill among leaders. I'd just extend its scope to other roles in an organisation as well: sales processionals, consultants, customer service managers and others. They also benefit from personal and organisational storytelling, but all may be educated along this four-step approach. With stories, you inspire, impact, educate and convince people rather than with facts. Storytelling is relevant for a leaders' business.

How technology can unleash India’s full potential

How technology can unleash India’s full potential | Education, Technology and Storytelling | Scoop.it
Technology can fix corruption, health care, education, water sanitation and more.
Patricia Stitson's insight:

"Tens of millions of children in India receive substandard education or none at all.  It will take years to train new teachers and build schools, and an entire generation will be left out.  The only practical solution is to roll out digital tutors with the help of NGOs so that communities can uplift themselves."

 

Adoption is the only option.  While I still hear debates happening in the US it seems that the use of technology is the only way forward for many other countries.  I am fascinated to see what will happen with adaptive learning. 

 

"The digital tutor of the future will take students into holographic simulations to teach history, culture, and geography.  It will provide equally good education to all children, rich and poor."

E-Learning Design's Lost Focus on the Learner

E-Learning Design's Lost Focus on the Learner | Education, Technology and Storytelling | Scoop.it
Focusing on how to get started almost always seems to center on what the designer should do—and buy.
Patricia Stitson's insight:

How does using adding story into the education + technology equation = better learning?  We often think of interaction as the power to click.  However, people naturally engage with story that imprints learning much more effectively than rote memorization.  Learning how best to couch your learning in a Big Picture umbrella that involves story will cause your learners to naturally interact with your course, beyond just clicks.

Here is another article on leadership that will help us chart our future and create it well.


Heaven knows, just looking at the news headlines these days reminds us how critical leadership is. And I'm not just talking at the political level. Nor am I talking about leadership at the big corporate level. I'm talking about leadership at YOUR level -- no matter where you are in your career or professional life. We are all required to be leaders today in some way, shape or form, whether we work alone or with others.


So what skills do we need to cultivate now to be awesome in the next 20? This article covers them.


Out of the 6 discussed, 4 are related to storytelling:

  1. Questions Not Answers. Effective business storytelling is NOT about 'telling'. It's about evoking stories from others and listening. Then sharing a story in return. That's the exact opposite of what is usually taught however. In order to really leverage story as a leader, it's all about mastering the Art Of The Question. Knowing the right kinds of questions to ask when is one of the secrets to the universe. No kidding. You 'gotta master this one.
  2. Employee Pull. Story is a pull technology, not a push technology. Stories pull people into your world. If you are still relating to storytelling as a push technology -- let me tell you a story so I can push my message to you -- cut it out. Pivot and work with stories as a pull technology so you are working with modern 21st Century skills.
  3. Customer Pull. Ditto #2
  4. Purpose. Got a purpose for your company that creates a positive impact on the planet? In order for Purpose to come alive, to capture the hearts/minds of people, story is your #1 vehicle for getting the job done. Get this under your belt today so you are propelled past others who are late to the game.


There are 2 other skills the author talks about in this post. For me they are long on concepts and short on examples or how-to. But they are good signposts to keep on the radar screen and find more articles research on.


OK -- I'm off to client meetings. While I'm gone doing my story thing, read the insights from this article (of which there are many) so you can start preparing today for your leadership of tomorrow.

Via Karen Dietz

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 5, 11:07 AM

I'm finally back online after a 2-week vacation so I'll be posting more regularly now.


And I found this terrific article on data and storytelling from HBR that is very wise. The author is Walter Frick and he's interviewing journalist Jim Tankersley of the Washington Post. Jim is talking about linking data and story together -- ways to do it and how to think about it. 


I love what he says here: "Data and visualizations and storytelling — human drama — when combined help readers understand concepts. I can get a lot from one great visual chart, I can get more context from several paragraphs just really laying out the conclusions of data. And I can get a lot out of a story about someone like me doing something that is interesting to me. But I think that when you bring them all together what you get is this experience where people have a process of discovery for themselves which I think is important for learning. If you are just looking at a chart you can try to figure out what it’s telling you and there’s a little bit of discovery as [you] decipher it. If that chart occurs in the natural flow of narrative or storytelling, then I think it’s almost a clue popping up as you’re trying to solve this mystery. I think that when they all work together, they're more powerful than any of them alone."


There are many other great insights and words of wisdom here for anyone who needs/wants to work with both stories and data together. There's lots to learn here.
