Love using these in TOK. One of my favourite, in Greek, translates as 'raining chair legs', when in English you'd say 'raining cats and dogs'. The Greek version kind of makes more sense!

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, March 26, 2014 4:58 PM

"The course unit guide focuses on a series of “big questions” students are prompted to ask rather than specific answers they are expected to learn. Social media —  blogs, Twitter, video, Storify, a Google+ community — are enlisted for specific purposes of inquiry, reflection, metacognition, mindful personal participation in the digital commons, collaboration and creative problem solving.

Burvall and her students apply the overarching question of the course — “how do we know what we know?” — to everything else they study from the natural sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities. She is an advocate of learning in public, not only to prepare students for taking control of their intellectual life online, but in order to enlist networks of others."

We've studied the nexus between belief and action.  One implication is that lack of certainty may be a problem because we fail to act.  This article is about the opposite problem - absolute certainty may lead to extreme actions, so skepticism can indeed be healthy.

Congrats to biz story colleague Michael Harris -- who does great work in story and sales -- for getting this article published by HBR. It's all about when to share a story and when to share data. Important to know!


I really like the research Harris shares, and it adds to our knowledge about how much data to share with people and still stay effective.


Enjoy this easy to read piece, add the research to your repertoire, and build this strategy into your biz story toolkit.
