Linda G. Foss's insight:

I've loved midmapping since i was a student in the 1980s and always introduce students to it as one method of brainstorming and organizaing ideas, especially if tradional listing & outlines don't work for them.

Folded Book Art (Bookigami)

Folded Book Art (Bookigami) | Creativity | Scoop.it

"These are not particularly sophisticated, but they are simple and fun. These folds are super basic. I folded one page at a time rather than two's or three's. That gave them lots of fullness. I found out that you really need a book with a lot of pages or you won't achieve the full 180 degree shape. Use a bone folder for sharp creases and to save your fingertips (and avoid paper cuts)."


Via Chris Lott
Linda G. Foss's insight:

Wow! As a kid I was  told to "be careful with books" never mark them or fold the pages. Grad school corrupted me as far as the marking goes; can hardly read anymore without a pencil and/or highlighter; But I still treat paper books carefully; this is out of my comfort zone and yet, so interesting . . .

Chris Lott's curator insight, December 6, 2013 3:02 PM

Bookigami is fun and easy enough that even I made some good looking examples without any intensive planning. But do use some kind of bone folder or other device or you might lose a fingernail from smoothing and folding so many pages!

MIT scientists have created a 'wearable' book using temperature and lighting to mimic the experiences of a book's protagonist, writes Alison Flood.
Linda G. Foss's insight:

Here's something I never thought of when I tell my students to "show" through imagistic, sensory writing rather than "tell" your reader what to feel or think about what's happening in the story.
