Systems thinking promotes an analytical or engineering type of mindset. In many design fields today, people who are required to create on demand use a design thinking model for this purpose. Design Thinking is Human-centered Design thinking acquires and synthesizes information in order to generate creative, human-centered solutions. If design thinking has the potential to help us come up with better design solutions, then let’s make room for it as we design and promote learning experiences. Solutions for the 21st Century Those of us who feel hampered by current models may already practice some design thinking techniques. This is critical, because the way things are going, the solution to many problems may be much broader and more integrated than one training course can provide.

Meograph – 4 Dimensional Story Telling Web 2.0 Style What I love about Web 2.0 apps is the simplicity. Bloated desktop apps like Office and Photoshop, with their hundreds of menu items and toolbars, are powerful tools but become difficult for non techies to handle. Web 2.o tools, on the other hand, are focused on specific purposes, allowing them to be streamlined and simple enough for anyone to use.

While I have found Meograph to be a very useful and simple to use storytelling tool, there is room for improvement. The Timeline.

Méthode des six chapeaux Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Pour cela, chaque participant prend un « chapeau » d'une couleur particulière, lui assignant ou lui reconnaissant un rôle. Ce chapeau peut changer durant la réunion. La méthode[modifier | modifier le code] Quand il s'agit d'utiliser la méthode lors d'une réunion, le principe est de faire l’effort d’endosser tous les modes de pensée à tour de rôle (ou de les reconnaître chez les autres intervenants). Ce système a pour vocation de créer un climat de discussion cordial et créatif et facilite la contribution de chacun. On peut résoudre les problèmes plus rapidement en concentrant sa pensée sur la tâche à accomplir. Quand il s'agit d'un management personnel, l'effort se porte sur le changement successif des modes de pensée. Les différents chapeaux[modifier | modifier le code] Chapeau blanc[modifier | modifier le code] La neutralité : lorsqu’il porte le chapeau blanc, le penseur énonce des faits purement et simplement.
