Classical and Rigorous

Clark Quinn

We used to believe that the sun circled the earth, and that the world was flat. They worked in an industrial age, but we’re in a new environment, and we’re finding that we need new methods. And, let me add, these old practices are not aligned with what we know about how our brains work. And in Scaling Up Excellence , Sutton & Rao point to more viral approaches to change rather than the old monolithic methods.

Using what we know about neuroscience and the brain’s reaction to certain stimuli peels back the curtain on how marketers use the same powers for a less-than-noble cause. The picture often changes, blurs, or becomes routine, signaling your brain that the included information isn’t important.

What Learning Designers Can Learn from Agile Software Designers

Mindflash

The problem was that when the sun came up, I wanted to go fishing or skateboarding or play baseball with my friends. I have a few friends who are software developers, and I occasionally pick their brains about design processes to see what I could learn and perhaps apply in how learning experiences can be designed. I have always been fascinated with software design, even as a young kid learning BASIC on a Radio Shack TRS-80 , I wanted to make that computer do stuff.

Not Your Father’s ROI

Jay Cross

But like Pontiacs and Oldsmobiles, old-school ROI’s day in the sun is waning. Often, results obtained from social science research methods will produce more meaningful feedback than solid counts of the wrong thing. Exchanges of information and knowledge are what make peoples’ brains work on a purpose and what gets the imagination going to formulate pertinent responses.
