A Simple Guide to Design Learning 

A Simple Guide to Design Learning  | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Doris Wells-Papanek of www.designlearning.us published an article in “Innovation Journal” in which she said “Design is to doing as learning is to thinking.” Learning, Wells-Papnek explains, prepares students to think, and design enables them to do. The goal of design learning is to help students become great problem solvers as they progress through the steps of the design learning framework, challenged to be creative but mindful of the task put before them.

Using Story in Design, Innovation, Problem Solving

Using Story in Design, Innovation, Problem Solving | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
How narrative intelligence can help everyone design solutions and generate useful data.

 

Karen Dietz's insight:

I really like how this author, Denise Withers, talks about how our narrative intelligence (our knowledge of story structure, and our story thinking ways) can be applied in business to solve problems, help decision making, and be used as another design process to improve innovation.

 

Love it, love it. These points apply to any business or nonprofit. Withers shares anecdotes to make her points, and offers great advice.

 

As an aside -- my friend and story colleague Madelyn Blair and I were just talking the other day about narrative intelligence and a book she'd like to write about it with another story colleague Denise Lee. Get busy Madelyn and Denise! We need that book :))

Five of the Most Important Infographics of the 19th Century | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Data visualization is not a new phenomenon. For centuries, artists and historians, educators and scientists have been creating illustrations to better communicate complex information.

 

From Emma Willard’s “Picture of Nations” to Dimitri Mendeleev’s Periodic Table, historical infographics continue to inspire and educate today. Here is a look at some of the most influential and beautiful infographics from the 19th century...
