15+ Resources to Inspire Writing with Digital Prompts by @ShellTerrell | TeacherCast

15+ Resources to Inspire Writing with Digital Prompts by @ShellTerrell | TeacherCast | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"One of my favorite activities with my students was having them keep daily journals. Each day, they knew the routine. Grab their journals, grab a pillow, sit where they want and spend 5 minutes responding to the prompt on the board. Nowadays, technology provides us more engaging ways to encourage writing. Students can journal online with blogs or use mobile technologies to capture images, record videos, and post podcasts. They can make their voices more engaging, spread their ideas, and receive comments from around the world."

What Objects Tell the Story of Your Life? | New York Times

What Objects Tell the Story of Your Life? | New York Times | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"Carefully curating a limited set of objects has lately become a popular way for museums and historians to tell vast histories (e.g., the history of the world, or of New York City).

 

We can use the same approach to tell our personal histories as well. A sentimental T-shirt, a kindergarten drawing or a dog-eared book? What objects tell the story of your life?"

 

Read the related article Object Lessons in History then answer:

What objects tell the story of your life? Can you identify five or 10 objects that you would include in an exhibit or book about your life?

Why did you select each of those objects?

Do you think telling history through objects is a “a clever way to hook people on history”? Do objects tell a story that words or images aren’t able to convey quite as effectively?

This is an exercise for students 13+.  But I think it's great for any age. Use it as a storytelling prompt.  Or try it as a team exercise by replacing "your life" with "our organization"  in the above prompts. Did everyone pick the same list of objects or were they wildly diverse? You could tell stories about each of the objects or you tell the story about why each person picked the objects they did.  Use them internally or externally.
