Free Technology for Teachers: The Public Domain Review - A Good Place to Find Public Domain Media

Free Technology for Teachers: The Public Domain Review - A Good Place to Find Public Domain Media | Serious Play | Scoop.it

The Public Domain Review is a website that features collections of images, books, essays, audio recordings, and films that are in the public domain. Choose any of the collections to search for materials according to date, style, genre, and rights. Directions for downloading and saving media is included along with each collection of media.

As you might guess, nearly all of what I found in the collections on The Public Domain Review is content of a historical nature. The collections include short descriptions that explain the significance of the media you're accessing.

The Ice Bucket Challenge and the Art of Storytelling | LinkedIn

The Ice Bucket Challenge and the Art of Storytelling | LinkedIn | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"The challenge consists of people dropping buckets of ice water over themselves, recording it, sharing the experience to social media, and then nominating others to do the same. Challenge participants are also encouraged to make a donation to ALS research or to the charity of their choice. This viral campaign has undoubtedly achieved overwhelming success, raising both money and awareness for the disease, for which there is no cure."

 

True success lies in the art of storytelling –brands becoming part of people’s stories and people becoming part of the brand. Read the full article to find out more about these 10 lessons that can be learned from this ice-infused social phenomenon:

The value lies not in the idea, but in the doingTo ignite a social epidemic, flare up human involvementTransform consumers from the user, to the storytellerThink of a story as your currency for connectionEvolve from creating pictures and words, to creating experiencesMasterfully connect story and experienceEmploy technology as your enabling toolSimplicity mattersBut normalcy is overratedAnd lastly, every great story starts somewhere

What playfulness can do for you - The Boston Globe

What playfulness can do for you - The Boston Globe | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Even the most responsible adults occasionally indulge in playfulness: pursuing delight, engaging in friendly competition, and trying to amuse others and ourselves. Scientists who specialize in the psychology of play have only recently started getting a grip on what makes otherwise self-possessed, mature adults inclined toward fooling around—and what long-term benefits they get out of it. What they are discovering is that playfulness, as a personality trait, is not only complex but consequential. And one question facing them is whether those qualities are associated with a fixed trait that some people have and others don’t, or whether they arise from a state of mind that we can train ourselves to inhabit.

S.T.O.R.I… – A strategy using story principles for Trainers and Facilitators

S.T.O.R.I… – A strategy using story principles for Trainers and Facilitators | Serious Play | Scoop.it

While both improvisation and facilitation works best when the process and the outcome is open-ended, this does not mean it cannot be structured. How many times have you heard a facilitator or trainer say ‘trust the process’. One of the most important reasons for this trust is that, if the right ingredients are in the room, insight, transformation and learning is inevitable.

The S.T.O.R.I… model summarizes these necessary elements and demystifies the enigma of the process.

Making A Manifesto

Making A Manifesto | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Wouldn't it be a great writing exercise, a great self-expression exercise, if students were to write their own manifestos or even better rewrite/remix the manifestos of others?

I put together this slideshow of examples of other manifestos out there. Download the PDF or PPT on the home page for the show. It would be a great activity to use one of these for a lesson or use them all to provide inspiration for students to make/write their own manifesto about a topic on poster A3 paper.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

Good idea! It can be used both in training and coaching.

It's impossible to OVERSTATE the importance of kicking off your training program in an effective way. That first ten minutes is akin to the first minute or two when you meet a new person -- you only have one chance to make a first impression.

If you begin training according to the principles and actions in this section, you'll find that your learners will be more forgiving of mistakes, more attentive and engaged, and ultimately learn more effectively.
