The World’s Largest Lesson: Global Goals Activities

The World’s Largest Lesson: Global Goals Activities | hokusai | Scoop.it
I have a strong belief that education should assist learners in developing the desire and skills for global stewardship. I discussed this in my post, Empathy and Global Stewardship: The Other 21st Century Skills https://usergeneratededucation.wordpress.com/2013/07/28/empathy-and-global-stewardship-the-other-21st-century-skills/. Learners, grades 5 and 6, in my gifted class do the global goals projects one hour per week. What follows are…

Balancing a data centric and customer centric approach in 2 links

Balancing a data centric and customer centric approach in 2 links | hokusai | Scoop.it
I want to share two links I reviewed last week that will hopefully change the way you look at digital marketing & advertising and the way you manage data in your organization. Digital marketing seems to push people to be more analytical in their approach and there is nothing wrong with that, but you need to add the creative and intuitive side to your digital storytelling and marketing analysis. Start with this video (thanks to Jeff Sexton for the share):…

Storytelling and language in Participatory Community Network Mapping

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 15, 2017 12:39 PM

OK, this is a deep post -- but well worth it if you are into storytelling creating successful change. As a leader, share it with your organizational development folks, but also understand it yourself so you can be more effective.

 

In fact, you'll probably want to bookmark this entire site. There are tools to explore and more insights to read on the link between storytelling and change.

 

One of the reasons I like this post is because it also talks about language. The language we use in our stories is important. Using generative language is a must. Generative language creates forward movement. Get more insights on this by reading the post.

 

I also like the notion shared here of mapping stories collaboratively in your network. It's an incredibly valuable tool because then you know because the stories act as bridges to other groups, divisions, and worlds where you need to go and have impact.

 

The site also shares a simple network mapping tool. Yay!

 

My only quibble is that the article focuses on stories as sense-making tools when instead they are meaning-making vehicles. Sense making is "Oh I get it." Meaning making is, "Oh, now I know how this is valuable, or now I know what to do." That's a huge difference, and meaning making is a way more desirable outcome.

 

Dig in here for accelerating your leadership and change skills.
