How can the use of new emerging tools — like iPads and virtual reality — support visual practice?
What are some of the apps and ideas that can create next level visual thinking?
There’s a lot of emerging technology today — like the new iPad Pro — that allows you to use graphic scribing, sketchnoting and other applications to support visual thinking. There’s also all sorts of imaging technology — like virtual reality — that could it be used to help people to remotely experience an event or training. What’s new in this field and how can we get a quick overview of what’s possible now?
In this optional, stand alone session, we will share both good and bad practices around new technology.
Paul will share some recent cases of what he’s been trialling with both large and small groups, and how he works remotely. He will get specific about apps like ProCreate, WorkVisual, and other visual applications he’s been using. And we will talk about the limits and power of technology as it applies to visual thinking.
If you have an iPad or other devices, please bring them to this session. If you don’t, don’t worry — this session will give you an opportunity to see for yourself how this technology can be used and give you some examples of what you might want to try out.
Please bring your questions and your curiosity! You don’t need to have attended the rest of the Visual Thinking Lab to participate.
How can we host ourselves through visuals and gain insights to support us individually in our work?
How can visuals be used to host others and share the collective power?
Visuals have power — the power to move, disrupt, clarify, help and unite. These powers can be used for good, or not!
Visual thinking is a way to help you understand yourself and your own process. Practices like intentional doodling or art making can help us to check in with ourselves and see what is emerging.
With others, visuals also have power, and understanding how to use it is important. Processes that use a graphic recorder or facilitator put a lot of power into that person’s hands to capture meaning and represent it. Processes like World Café intentionally put the power of the pen into people’s hands as they sit at their café tables.
In this module, we will explore the different ways you can use visuals to share the power of collective sense and meaning making. Discover how visuals can be a leveller in power dynamics, and how visuals can support collective co-design and emergence.
How can you orient your projects around the people who matter most?
How visual thinking is the difference that makes a difference in designing how people will interact with your project.
Have you ever looked forward to using an object and afterwards wondered “What were they thinking?”? People-centered design focuses on how to take into account the user experience, orienting your designing and projects around the people who matter most. Visuals can help us to clearly see and understand how our work impacts others. It can make the difference for projects, events, teamwork and in many other contexts too.
Using prototyping and storyboarding, we will creatively play with the elements of our projects. We’ll take a look at how users interact with visuals and graphic facilitation and how simple tools and methods can create a new world of connectivity.
How can I share my perspective of the world to create clarity and connection?
How can I map the system I’m working in for greater understanding and focus?
Have you ever found yourself in conflict with someone else and at a loss to know why? Our understanding and perspectives of the world are often not the same. Since we all carry a different mental models of how the world works, it can lead to misunderstandings.
This module will help us understand the mental models that would otherwise be in our heads and to map this out on paper for others to see.Understanding the system we’re in and mapping it quickly and easily allows us to build upon it.
Discover how can visuals help us map our current understanding of the system we’re in and how we want to change it. We’ll be using simple tools and methodologies to represent where we’re at and to look at it in fresh ways, as well as depicting where our projects, people and organisations fit in the wider context they live in.
