An Introduction to Systems Thinking and Wicked Problem Solving™“Draw | Learning, Learning Technologies & Infographics - Interest Piques | Scoop.it

DrawToast workshops are a great way to get groups to think freshly about mental models. In just 3 minutes, each person sketches a diagram of how to make toast. When comparing diagrams, people are shocked at how diverse the diagrams are, revealing a wide range of models of what's important in making toast. It's a great launch pad for  drawing out what's really important to the group.

With over 232 million people around the world using Twitter on a regular basis, it’s easy to see its’ impact on society.

 

This infographic from eLearners focuses on the main psychological reasons behind Twitter, including who uses it (35% are between 18 and 29 years old), what they share (nearly 25% claim they don’t hold back and share most things or everything online), and why they tweet (it helps fulfill basic social needs such as belonging and affection).

Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 2, 12:50 PM

I'm a huge Star Trek fan. I've watched all the episodes, the movies, spinoffs, and reruns. I am so sad at the death last week of Leonard Nimoy who played the character Spock.


As I was trolling the internet for remembrances, imagine my delight when I stumbled across this Audi ad featuring Nimoy and the younger version of Spock played by Zachary Quinto in the latest Star Trek movies.


Forget the Budweiser Super Bowl ads! This is now my all-time favorite. It's fabulous storytelling and not to be missed. We kept playing it this weekend and laughing again and again. There are great lessons here on business storytelling, too: humor, drama, surprise, great characters, etc.


If you've never heard of Star Trek (as I'm experiencing in my workshops these days) you might not get all the jokes. If you are a fan, you will have a great time.


Carry on Mr. Spock. Farewell Leonard Nimoy.

Interesting video from business consultant Karen Dietz.  This Audi ad is prices as the old Mr. Spock (the late Leonard Nimoy) matches wits with the new Mr. Spock (Zachary Quinto) in this funny commercial. Priceless!  Aloha, Russ.

Shaping Your Stories: Timing, Trials, Transformation... | LinkedIn - Jay Golden | Learning, Learning Technologies & Infographics - Interest Piques | Scoop.it

""Jay! I'm working on my stories!" Said my friend Janie recently. Her three-year-old son was apparently asking for story after story - about 30 stories a day. At first, she said, it was exhausting, but she quickly started to learn some techniques. For example, she said, "I had to use similar stories for different purposes, to keep them fresh. Then I started using sensory details, and funny, enough, continued to learn again and again: The stories have to go somewhere."


And I'll tell you this is the same lesson I'm always learning: our stories, too, have to go somewhere. They have to take the audience along, through a journey of change, which shifts how the world works. And along the way, our stories don't just tell us what happened; our stories to tell us why it happened."


Read the full article to find out more about these storytelling techniques:

  • Scan your journey
  • Know the changes
  • Own your messages
  • Immerse yourself in the experience
  • Details, details
  • Go into trial, but don't get stuck
  • Surprise!
  • Use key phrases and metaphors
  • Travel across time
  • Find the lesson
  • Tell it first
  • Get your story goggles on

(From the Article): Creativity is important for solving problems, coming up with new ideas, and processing information. It's a valuable trait in the workplace, and something many employers value and encourage. One of the main benefits of doodling is that it heightens creativity. Through freeing your mind of common, linear, linguistic-based thinking, information is able to be processed in unique ways and the ability to look at situations from different angles and perspectives is increased.

The importance of storytelling for business change, social change

Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 3, 10:28 AM

What a thoughtful, rich, and informative article this is! Yes, it's about what needs to happen in storytelling for social change to happen. But the author, Simon Hodges in the UK, makes a strong case that the same points apply to business as well.


In fact, they apply to anyone who desires to inspire people to make a change. Any leader, marketer, brander, or social change activist will be better equipped to use stories to advance business or a cause after reading this. This is because the author doesn't focus on plot, characters, emotions or other story mechanics -- but on precious story dynamics instead.


This is a must read, IMHO.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, February 22, 10:22 AM

MOOCs seem like a simple concept, but they demand a new way of approaching education--it means REALLY letting the learner be in charge of their learning rather than having professors be both the font of knowledge and gatekeeper/policeman.  The design structure to accommodate large numbers of participants, deliver content at multiple levels, different learning styles and demanding different time investments while including assessment strategies that evaluate a reasonable level of expertise and provide feedback of any value for the participant, while precluding cheating, is nearly impossible.  This traditional model is behind the Certificates offered for a price.  They are a clever way of monetizing MOOCs, but not a very reliable representation of knowledge acquisition.   The movement toward peer assessment is an interesting permutation, but still begs the question of how (or if) knowledge should be demonstrated and documented.
