The Science of Sensory Marketing

“In the past, communications with customers were essentially monologues—companies just talked at consumers,” Krishna says. “Then they evolved into dialogues, with customers providing feedback. Now they’re becoming multidimensional conversations, with products finding their own voices and consumers responding viscerally and subconsciously to them.”
Sharrock's insight:

Imagine if these findings found their ways into classrooms. For example, what if, on the first day of school, during introductions, students were given something warm to drink while discussing class expectations and general learning objectives?

Can you teach grit?

Can you teach grit? | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
Can you teach grit? The research has teachers abuzz about this term. Let's explore and learn how to teach it and talk about it.

Sharrock's insight:

One of things I've learned about motivation is about intrinsic rewards over extrinsic rewards. as having more impact on grit-like qualities in people. When you are only focusing on your own interests, rather than what you will get from others (they will always disappoint), you are more willing to take risks to achieve the goals. Your goals are more important to you. some research even suggests that extrinsic rewards take away power of your intrinsic rewards. This may be the true danger of "selling out", something that is not necessarily a sign of immaturity but an insight into the relationships of intrinsic rewards to extrinsic rewards and autonomy.

I think this is the key to developing "grit". Grit is that constellation of resilience skills and factors drawn on to achieve your goals. <br>

Smart Teenage Brains May Get Some Extra Learning Time

Smart Teenage Brains May Get Some Extra Learning Time | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it

"Brain research is helping scientists tease out subtle differences in how teenagers learn. John Hewitt is a neuroscientist who studies the biology of intelligence. He knew intelligence has a strong biological component. If your parents are smart, you'll probably be smart — even without a lot of fuss about the right schools and learning environments. But recently, Hewitt discovered something that surprised him. 'Well, I may have been wrong,' he admits. 'It may well be that the environmental boost you can get, or the detriment you can suffer through adversity, may indeed be a little more important at a critical period in adolescence than I had previously thought. And this may especially be true for parents of very bright children.' What Hewitt, director of the Institute for Behavioral Genetics at the University of Colorado, is talking about is a new understanding of the interplay between your genetic inheritance and how you learn from the environment. He credits another researcher, Angela Brant, for coming up with a new insight into this critical period in development. So what is it about children that allows them to grasp the 'deep' knowledge of syntax more quickly than do adults? Neuroscientists think the reason children do better at such challenges is that young brains are more receptive to learning. The study, published in Psychological Science, suggests that for many children it may be a mistake to stop learning new things. Even if you're a teenager, it might not be too late to start learning Chinese, chess or the cello." | by Shankar Vedantam

What Are Your Three Types of Ice?

Getting attention for you and your message is tough. You need something that cuts through the clutter and shows rather than tells. Here’s how to do it.A few blocks from my house is a drinking
Sharrock's insight:

from the article: "Everyone is competing for the same thing. Attention. Trying to rise above the clutter just enough to get noticed. To get hired, chosen, or purchased from. Out of a sea of often similar seeming alternatives."

How to create magical corporate story moments - Sticky Communication

How to create magical corporate story moments - Sticky Communication | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it

As someone who has been telling corporate stories for many years, let me interrupt with an emergency news flash. Yes, storytelling is the best way to capture attention, hearts and memories and make your point. But it’s much more difficult than other forms of nonfiction writing.
Just like in a story, though, the higher the mountain, the more rewarding the quest.

Tufte's Invisible Yet Ubiquitous Influence

Tufte's Invisible Yet Ubiquitous Influence | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it

"Clutter is a failure of design, not an attribute of information," Tufte writes in Envisioning Information.

Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "Tufte's fame all flows from a rethinking of information design. He has consulted with IBM (IBM) on how to cultivate innovative thinking, helped The New York Times redo its information graphics and advised NASA on mission-critical software interface design. "[Tufte] has made it clear that in a cluttered Information Age we need methods of cutting through the brush," says Steven Heller, a design educator and critic who has been art director of both The New York Times Book Review and Screw magazine."
