Black Swan Thinking Project Stage 1

The End of Fairytales
Black Swan Thinking Project Stage 1

with Innovator in Residence Ruben Puentedura

When the unexpected happens, how does one go about thinking about what could not be foreseen as though one had known about it all along? Why are bathtubs more interesting than showers, bars more relevant than banks, and gossips more powerful than priests when doing so? In this three-part series, we will look at these topics and much more, with an eye to developing a hands-on approach to Black Swan thinking, planning, understanding, and action.

These ShapingEDU LIVE sessions will be recorded and available to view for free.  You are welcome to attend individual sessions, or all three for maximum Black Swan thinking and fun (each session in this series builds on the previous ones).  Read more about The Black Swan Thinking Project in Ruben's blog post here.
