"Scenarios are now a part of every successful manager's toolkit. This book is the first comprehensive guide to the latest developments in scenario thinking written by today's leading practitioners in the field." -Napier Collyns, a pioneer of scenario planning at Dutch/Shell now Managing Director, Gloal Business Network (GBN) "In twenty years of helping companies create and plan for their futures, I have never come across a book that dealt with the use of scenario-based planning as comprehensively as this one." -David Kelley CEO, IDEO Product Development the creators of the Apple Mouse "This book is the greatest reference today on scenario planning-the preeminent tool for those who believe that the future belongs to those with the imagination to create it. The combination of scenario planning and strategy formulation can be a wondrous right brain process that galvanizes teams with a compelling vision and common purpose." -David E. Schnedler Director, Corporate Planning Sun Microsystems, Inc. "Organizations must create intellectual and organizational tension around distinctly different views of the future. Learning from the Future demonstrates why scenarios are ideally suited to generate such tension and how to use scenario learning as a steppingstone to superior strategies." -Richard Pascale, Associate Fellow of Oxford University and author of Managing on the Edge: How the Smartest Companies Use Conflict to Stay Ahead "An invaluable guide to the mind-stretching benefits of scenarios that are fully embedded in the strategic thinking process. It should be required reading for any management team embarking on scenario development so they can realize the benefits and evade the pitfalls." -George Day, Geoffrey T.

jessica cascianelli's curator insight, May 19, 2014 11:02 PM

This resource is interesting as it discusses the use of questioning in the classroom. It explains how the teacher takes a step back and allows the students to ask the questions instead of simply answering the teachers questions. It also has steps or rules for teachers, to help their students to produce their own questions. It explores the concept that allowing students to create their own questions can develop higher order thinking skills as creating questions requires deeper thinking than simply answering questions. 

 

So, how does this fit in with the Design and Technologies curriculum? When students are conducting investigations, experimenting, exploring, deconstructing or even producing produces, they should be asking questions. One aspect of the Design and Technologies curriculum  (2014) is decision-making processes which is informed by ethical, legal, aesthetic and functional factors. To make decision effectively, students need to be able to question there plans or products to make sure it meets these different factors. 


While this article is a blog. The website has many useful ideas and discussions as well as learning strategies and games. 

 

Jheny Cifuentes Tobon's curator insight, May 26, 3:24 PM
In a century where everything is changing, the educational system and traditional thinking of it has to change, too. Nowadays, students are taking a more critical stance on what they are being taught, and as teacher we must encourage them to do so. Students can be the ones who do the questions instead of teachers. In this order, students need to become more empowered in the classroom; they need to analyze and judge the content they are being taught and come up with analytical questions.
This is a strategy that has been used in many schools around the world and that has given good results; it is time that we use new methodologies in which students play a more important role in the learning process so that there can be a real change.
