donhornsby's curator insight, March 3, 6:14 PM

(From the Article): Creativity is important for solving problems, coming up with new ideas, and processing information. It's a valuable trait in the workplace, and something many employers value and encourage. One of the main benefits of doodling is that it heightens creativity. Through freeing your mind of common, linear, linguistic-based thinking, information is able to be processed in unique ways and the ability to look at situations from different angles and perspectives is increased.

Le Geste — the antidote to standardisation in visual thinking? — Visual Thinking in Business — Medium | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it
On a larger scale you can say that le geste stands for non-verbal communication. Like in the way someone points or pinches his chin with his hand to indicate he is thinking. By the way, it is no surprise that the stylish French lifestyle has a word for it.

A picture is worth a thousand words | Greenbank | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

Imagine a meeting where all the issues, debates, solutions or decisions that you and your team are discussing get captured, as you speak, in a large visual piece (about 3 meters wide by 1.40 meters tall) where you can easily identify each moment, what was said, agreed or argued.


Or even better! Imagine a workshop where what is being said, and projected and practiced, gets summarized in a visual element which, at the end of the programme, participants will receive a digital image by e-mail or any device you decide, to be inspired by, again and again, any time they need a reminder.

How to Teach Visual Thinking and Storytelling

How to Teach Visual Thinking and Storytelling | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

I was recently asked to give some advice on how to go about teaching a Visual Thinking and Storytelling course and realized I had a lot to offer, but had never condensed it into a synopsis/example listing. So here is version 1.0 of my recommendations (version 2.0 will be coming soon)
I use the Rule from The Back of the Napkin to cast an overview of the kinds of ways we see and show information, but I also use a lot of ideas from service design thinking to engage students with ideas about storytelling and diagraming out problems.
