Classroom strategies gafe ca slideshare

Connective technologies, mobile devices, and new global learning opportunities are reshaping how, what and where people learn. Conversely, traditional brick and mortar schools are composed of decades-old classrooms designed to support a different type of learning from a different age. So, do our current schools, to maintain relevance and effectiveness, need to rethink how their spaces are used to support learning in a connected world? The answer is yes. In this session, we'll explore exemplars of physical space design and strategies for rethinking how "classrooms" can be rethought to support a more contemporary learning experience.

3 TED Talks That Uncover the Secrets of Storytelling

3 TED Talks That Uncover the Secrets of Storytelling | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"When I decided to write an article on brand storytelling inspired by TED talks, I went about it all wrong.

 

Scouring YouTube for tactics, elements, and components of brand storytelling, I was aiming to find five or ten (or 17) actionable tips that you can use to tell you brand’s story.

 

I was already boring myself to death and I hadn’t even begun to write.

We have all heard (ad nauseam) about the “power of brand storytelling,” and I know that I have read more than one blog that spits off a numeric list of tips that I just “can’t live without” as a content marketer.

 

I began to get curious about what pulls me, personally, into a story. What is it that moves me so much that I become an advocate of the brand/person/cause that is being talked about in the story? What is that secret sauce in brand storytelling that activates the magic button inside each of us, firing up our passion?"

Julie Neumark curates “over 25 TED talks” into 3 faves by Andrew Stanton, JJ Abrams, & Nancy Duarte with themes of “wonder, mystery, possibility, connection, and engagement.”

Ken Schneider's curator insight, July 23, 8:49 AM

Very good POV on story and some interesting TED Talks - especially Nancy Duarte. Worth your time!

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 23, 3:37 PM

Fellow curator Gregg Morris discovered this gem for his Story and Narrative curation and I thought you should know about it too.


3 TED talks are featured here and they are all worth watching. The first one from Andrew Stanton on the Clues To A Great Story I've curated before. It's a keeper. 


The second one from JJ Abrams is new for me -- and I love it. It's all about adding mystery into the storytelling toolbox. As the author of this post Julie Newmark says, "For example, creating puzzles to solve, challenges and even small adventures within your brand stories, you are involving customers and inspiring them to use their minds together as they seek to discover more. Engagement and connection to your brand is the point here and using mystery creates the potential for taking it all to a deeper level." Right on!!


And the third video from Nancy Duarte focuses on one of the most powerful dynamics for moving people to action -- before and after pictures.


Have fun with these and incorporate these lessons into your business storytelling.

The Renaissance We Need in Business Education

The Renaissance We Need in Business Education | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Business education today is anachronistic in both how it is conducted and what its content focuses on. Our brick institutions have in no way caught up with what today’s technologies make possible in terms of virtual learning and individualized, customized instruction. More importantly, business education needs to evolve once again, revising its goals to educate leaders of the future who have a new set of skills: sustainable global thinking, entrepreneurial and innovative talents, and decision-making based on practical wisdom.

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Flip Your Classroom With eduClipper and PixiClip | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"Teachers interested in trying the flipped classroom model often ask me for recommendations for video creation tools. They also often ask me for ideas on sharing videos without using YouTube. One answer to both of these questions is to useeduClipper.

On the free eduClipper iPad app you can create instructional videos on a whiteboard in the Khan Academy style. You can also use the app to create a video in which you annotate an image or document while talking about it. After creating your video you can save it to an eduClipper board that you have shared with your students through the eduClipper classroom setting. Your students can view the videos on their iPads or in the web browsers on their laptops."
