To me, this article truly deserves the "Mindshift" banner - it will shift thinking. Perhaps you're in a school where this shift in thinking has already occurred but I'm guessing most of us are not. The drive has been to obtain the tool with less thought on what to do with it that will make any true and lasting impression on 21st century competencies. This is worth your time to read and reflect upon.

Many thanks to fellow curator [url=/u/105017 x-already-notified=1]Giuseppe Mauriello[/url] for suggesting this post! It's an article written by Gavin McMahon that includes 2 SlideShare pieces.


The first SlideShare is about Pixar's rules for storytelling. The second SlideShare are story tips from Kurt Vonnegut.


I've curated the Pixar piece before, along with some of Vonnegut's material. But now they are together in this post, plus the author includes the top 5 tips for better business storytelling.


And there's a bonus! Follow the link at the end of the article for a terrific post, "Make Your Presentations Poetic". 


This is all good stuff. Happy storytelling!

I love this article and felt strongly that we librarians need to read it and think about it, too. What does the arrangement of our space say to users? Do we welcome them? Do we embrace them? Do we make sure there is collaborative as well as individual work spaces? Are books easy to locate? So many questions to ask ourselves and this article will help you get started! 

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 15, 2014 2:04 PM

The article demonstrates how teachers are being and becoming. We do not arrive fully formed and take time to figure out who we are as a teacher. It might be we never fully do. I used tables for most of my teaching career. I created cooperative settings without re-arranging. Quite often, I sat amongst the students.
