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 :))

Research Tools For Students To Diversify Their Approach To Data Seeking

Research Tools For Students To Diversify Their Approach To Data Seeking | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"Why do so many students choose Wikipedia when asked to find information on the Internet?

I believe the answer is that Wikipedia is like the McDonalds of the Internet, you can always find it and you  know what you’re going to get. Quite frankly, I like Wikipedia because it provides students with a starting point for research and I am particularly fond of the way I’ve seen so many students develop their own method of research by using the links at the bottom to find more information."

* Oolone - a visual search engine

* Twurdy - search by reading lexile

Additional resources are listed (and hot links to all are inclucluded). Please note that Qwiki Reference is no longer available.

Kimberly House's curator insight, October 3, 2013 2:09 PM

I've just shared this post with our Grade 4-12 teachers. The biggest hurdle we face is keeping teachers up to speed so they can best inform their students. Information Literacy is everyone's responsibility and not only that of the modern librarian or the tech integrators.
