Hope you are having a good time making stuff and making stuff happen.
Just wanted to share an update “from the field” and give a glimpse of how the tools & techniques from our Rockstar Scribe course are being used to design solutions to the world’s toughest challenges. Members of the Alphachimp Team has is in wonderful state of Maine for the annual PopTech conference.
In the days before the main conference begins (Thursday Oct. 18th), our team is working with the PopTech Fellows Program.
These scientists and social entrepreneurs are described as the “visionary change agents who are hard at work incubating new approaches to the planet’s toughest challenges”.
As part of this program, the Fellows are exposed to a network of experts, peers, and supporters who can help them truly change the world.
We are honored that graphic facilitation is included as a core part of their experience. Because, in the end, we believe that the greatest benefit of graphic recording, visual facilitation, and information graphics is to help people understand complex situation and decide what to do next!
These researchers, designers and entrepreneurs are tackling incredibly complex problems and developing fascinating new solutions, involving data visualization, mobile technology, crowdsourcing, and even unmanned drones to deliver healthcare and other services!
When we launched our online course, Become a Rockstar Scribe at School or Work, these are the types of people we envisioned helping—folks who dedicate their time, energy and treasure to changing the world.
