Posted on Apr 17, 2015 by Rafiq Elmansy Last Activity on Apr 18, 2015

Our current world is evolving more rapidly than the capacity of any existing education system. The challenge of learning is getting even harder for the next generations. We do not have a prediction of how tomorrow will look like, but we know that flexible process models are able to face the changes comparing with fixed-style models; we know that the ability to adapt helped our ancestors to survive on this planet for about six million years. This leads us to the question; what is the most important skill to teach our kids in schools? The answer:  How to build creative and innovative minds that can adapt and face future unpredictable challenges.

The idea can be as simple as a trip to the market or as complex as a war. But the only condition is that the idea should be your own interpretation, opinion or story of something. Step 2.

Create your story: The characters will need a way which leads to the grand or subtle unveiling of your idea. Thus, you create your story with a narrative arc. The narrative arc can be gripping or bl... Read More
