Here's an very interesting blog post that friend and colleague Mary Alice Arthur in Denmark pointed me to. It's a blog talking about scribing -- or graphic facilitation. Scribing is where trained professionals visually capture the proceedings of a meeting or conference in real time on whiteboards or long panels of paper on the wall. It's amazing to watch and is a fantastic way to capture all that happened in a meeting.


This particular post presents Otto Scharmer's 4 levels of listening and talks about the connection to storytelling. I've always talked about "deep listening" in my client workshops and coaching. This is what I mean by that.


The author also constructs the 4 levels of scribing which actually maps the experience of storytelling. Awesome!


This is a short post but really good. I hope you get several "ah-hah's" by reading it.

I'm working on my iPad this morning before heading out the door and found this cool resource. If you want to build digital storytelling skills, this guide may be just what you are looking for. It promises to also show you how to use social media in your digital storytelling. Here's the catch though -- I couldn't download the materials to check it out because I'm not on my computer. I've been having terrible internet connectivity issues these last 2 days so hope all gets resolved soon. In the meantime, check out this resource and let me know what you think. Thanks and happy day!

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 15, 2015 8:56 PM

The data shows that learners whom have growth mindsets do better in school. But how do we know which learners have growth mindsets and which have a fixed mindset. PERTS (the Project for Education Research that Scales from Stanford) has a mindset kit (in beta form) that is available at no cost. In it  you will find lessons that you can use with your learners. The website states that the mindset kit is a "free, online resource designed to help educators and parents learn about adaptive academic mindsets, learn practices that promote these mindsets, and download activity ideas."

You will also find a survey that you have learners take (and you will receive a report with the final score).

Are you interested in teaching your learners about growth mindset? This is a great tool, and they welcome feedback as they will continue to add resources to this site. Take some time to  explore this site.
