A sheet for documenting thought processes during an experience and through the lens of authenticity.
If you visit any Apple Store (worldwide) you can now demo Explain Everything on the iPad Pro devices on display!
I was intrigued by the buckets and skills provided in this article on the World Economic Forum Blog. It was shared by a colleague last week and it continues to seems like a helpful way to organizing thinking around relevant programs in schools.
Instead of encouraging teachers to teach reading by offering their students descriptive lessons, prescriptive strategies, or graded assessments to point out all the ways in which they did not read well, there’s a better way, a more delightful way: to help students actually perform the act of reading more often.
Thanks to @BCBookmarks for featuring Make Yourself Clear today.
When using the iOS version of Explain Everything you can now more easily share your whiteboard via your favorite video conferencing tools with a few taps.
Steve encouraged me to sign up for this email, and so far I have indeed found it interesting.
Many adults look back on their educational pasts with at least some degree of scorn for the ways in which they were graded and sorted. The ones who earned very high grades and seemingly benefited from the system will sometimes say that they “knew how to play the game” or just “grinded it out.” They rarely say, grades were good because they allowed me to pursue my interests, enhance my strengths, and generally become a creative and autonomous person. The ones who earned low grades, too, rarely cite grades themselves as a motivator. If anything, low grades work to cut off learning that is only flowing at a trickle with which to begin.
Sellers, trainers, service professionals, or leaders should take note, though, because it is quite possible that you operate in a world where you, yourself, dole out something akin to grades in a way that shuts down something akin to learning. It is quite possible, in other words, that you are sidestepping your client’s, customer’s, or team’s curiosity or intrinsic motivation. As a result, you are missing the chance to enact meaningful change in their lives and in your business.
