Howard Zinn, MUN, & The Future of Education

After spending weeks thinking about the presentation and education panel I would be leading at ChoMUN, I found a new perspective on our current systems. The group at the Da Vinci Institute had a great deal of experience in “Futurist” thought. In the first few paragraphs of their treatise on the future of education, they cite the inefficiency of systems as they exist today. It is a distant past, but before I continue I want to explain their first reference to an inefficient system that hindered...

No more Powerpoint! Visualize!!

But with so much information and only so little time to talk, how can we transmit this wealth of data to our audience? Can we do it better? Faster? And another question that you might not think of: Can we make our information pretty?? More easy on the eye? On Wednesday I went to see the world’s foremost expert on visualizing data. His name is Edward Tufte, he...

Charisma 101 – A video Lesson

I was asked to come into my old school and give the newcomers some sage advice on basics for General Assemblies and “being noticed.” I gave about 45 minutes of a talk on Charisma and Presence. Most of the material you’ll see in the following videos are from Chapters 2 & 3 of our book. Can you imagine what’s in the other 8 chapters…?

The REVOLUTION of SI

We’ve only scratched the surface of the utility & ubiquity of Social Intelligence in our everyday life. Like a fellow Model UN advisor shared with us, “this belongs in the high school curriculum, especially with everything that’s going on nowadays.” And we couldn’t agree more.

Not only is this topic so...
