As part of her wider research into the tools and methodologies used by the next generation of global leaders, Heidi Forbes Oste has started down the path of researching the value of “visual practice” (visual facilitation, graphic recording, mindmapping, sketch-noting, etc.)
As a piece of her dissertation, Heidi’s research on the visual practice, although still in the early stages, focuses on how it supports leadership and global teams using social technologies.
In this one-hour webinar with Alphachimp's Peter Durand, Heidi answered questions and gave insight into the broader trends at the intersection of social systems, collaborative technology, visual learning, innovation and global leadership.

Ready for a 13 minute ride of an entire TEDx Event? TEDx Copenhagen (http://tedxcopenhagen.dk/) took place September 18th 2012 in Bremen Theater. This is your chance to connect the dots in a timelapse video by Bigger Picture.
Ole Qvist-Sørensen of Bigger Picture was also on stage at the big event, encouraging people to draw together.
We must draw more together. We all know that a picture is worth a 1000 words. Pictures can convey complex information in a way, which is natural for our brains to grasp. Visual thinking is a gift we all have and drawing is an easy and simple way to show and involve others in understanding -- or seeing -- what we mean. Drawing together can be seen as a collective meaning-making process for a group. It's easy to learn. It's intuitive. It starts with pen, paper and curiosity.
New York animation studio IdeaRocket was tapped to create the new show open for the final season of Showtime's Weeds. IdeaRocket specializes in "explainers," which made it an ideal choice for Weeds executive producers Jenji Kohan and Roberto Benabib, who wanted a short-and-sweet retelling of the narrative of the first seven seasons of the show.
Taking the popular whiteboard animation videos from the RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) in London as a model, IdeaRocket Creative Director William Gadea's team built the clip to order. "I think the reason the RSA style is so hypnotizing is because you are witnessing a creative act," Gadea says.
We asked him Five Questions about IdeaRocket, Weeds, and keeping it simple.
