narative structures and codes - some great dot point information.

Aurion Learning's curator insight, August 2, 2013 4:38 AM

Claude Levi-Strauss was a social anthropologist who "found that stories that are told unconciously mirror the values and myths of a culture."

 

Storytelling is an effective way of communicating values and information.

The Re-Emerging Art of Funding Innovation (SSIR)

The Re-Emerging Art of Funding Innovation (SSIR) | iEduc | Scoop.it
“Over the past few years, a small group of funders have begun to return to their roots by deliberately reintroducing innovation into their philanthropic processes and portfolios. They seek out ideas with transformative potential, take risks on less proven approaches, open themselves up to exploring new solutions, and recognize that innovation requires flexibility, iteration, and failure.”

"For more than a decade, the Monitor Institute3 has been working with many of these modern-day innovation funders—including the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, David and Lucile Packard Foundation, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, New Profit Inc., and Acumen. Over the course of our work, we have interviewed many of the world’s leading innovation strategists, corporate innovation specialists, venture capitalists, and social entrepreneurs to help us build a picture of what it means to find and fund social innovation.Transformation and Experimentation"Funding innovation starts with a fundamental shift in mindset. Innovation funders intentionally trade off probability of success in return for greater potential impact. Instead of just supporting proven, incremental solutions, they focus on transformation—investing in approaches that may have a higher risk of failure, but the potential to be lasting and truly game changing if they succeed. “When you’re doing innovation, the first question is not ‘Is this going to work?’ but rather, ‘If it works, would it matter?’” says Eric Toone, the former principal deputy director of the US Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA-E).

"In addition to distributing bed nets to reduce the spread of malaria, for example, an innovation funder might also pursue research to genetically alter mosquitos so they can’t transfer the parasite (an effort the Gates Foundation is now actually exploring).4 With these types of high-risk, high-reward bets, the impact from one or two big, transformational successes in a portfolio can justify the opportunity cost of many failures. The approach is similar to venture capital, where the outsized returns of a single “home run” investment can offset nine or ten less profitable enterprises."

[PDF] Classroom of the future

[PDF] Classroom of the future | iEduc | Scoop.it
Will classrooms still exist 20 years from now? Do we have traditional classrooms in a physical sense anymore? What is the classroom anyway? For most of us, a classroom consists of four walls, ‘closed’ doors, chairs, tables, perhaps a blackboard, and sometimes a desk - simple but efficient pieces of furniture. A quick glance at the history of pedagogical practices reveals that the classroom has scarcely evolved over a period of many years. Is the traditional classroom intrinsically outdated or has it rather survived the test of time because it is already self-reconfigurable and has been adapted in many different contexts of use? Do we even need a classroom anymore? Do we need a teacher in the classroom? What do we teach and what do we want pupils to learn? What kinds of knowledge and skills will be required in the future? These are some of the questions that we should bear in mind when thinking about the classroom of the future.
Over the last few decades, our understanding of learning and the conditions under which it is facilitated have substantially improved. In most contemporary theories, learning is conceived as a constructive and social activity, as a result of which the roles of the teacher and the learner within the classroom have been redefined. Development in technologies that can be used to enhance and support learning has been even more rapid. Nonetheless, it would appear that the majority of the classrooms in today’s schools and universities remain unreached by these developments. In our roles as students, parents, tax payers, policy makers, teachers, designers, or researchers, the future of the classroom is an important issue of concern to many of us. It is certainly an issue that has the potential to fire one’s imagination. It is also an issue that can unite people from various educational and vocational backgrounds or divide them even further. However, despite the wide range of ideas and perspectives on this topic, multi-disciplinary efforts to design the classroom of the future are scarce. Our presumptions surrounding the classroom are alive and well and for most of us, classrooms are something very physical. We therefore need multiple perspectives to shake up our own traditional way of thinking about classrooms and to stimulate a real discussion concerning what the classroom actually is.
