Innovative Reading Book List

Trying to decide between these books for reading about innovation. It is a difficult choice. I’ve been sorting and re-sorting this list, almost like a girl choosing an outfit before school. In a way I will need to wear these ideas for awhile so perhaps the comparison is apt.

I created an Amazon Book List to collect all of them, then subdivided into a smaller list called the Innovation Book List.

Google Cultural InstituteGoogle Cultural Institute

 

Google’s collaboration and  partnership with international museums, cultural institutions, and archives resulted in a growing digital treasure of cultural merit.  With a goal to display more of diverse heritage online, the collection is ongoing. Artworks and digital exhibitions plant the seeds of digital storytelling and exposition.  The Google team also includes the stories behind the archives of cultural institutions across the globe.

Visitors can add items to their own individualized gallery My favorite is “Meeting Street” which is a featured gallery. The robust search engine will display works across galleries worldwide as I found when I searched my favorite painter, George Inness.

Can An Over-Arching Purpose Help Students Learn?

Weekend Ed. Quote~August 16

 

The Democracy of Storytelling

I believe in the democracy of storytelling. I love the fact that our stories can cross all sorts of borders and boundaries. I feel humbled by the notion that I’m even a small part of the literary experience. I grew up in a house, in a city, in a country shaped by books. I don’t know of a greater privilege than being allowed to tell a story, or to listen to a story. They’re the only thing we have that can trump life itself. ~Colum McCann
