Yet we live in a world where the place you were born, the amount of money you have, and the level of melanin in your skin indicate the precise path you are expected to follow. Too many of us silence our creativity and let our hustle calcify as we settle for the roles assigned to us. Now Olatunde Sobomehin and sam seidel, co-teachers of the Creative Hustle course at Stanford University, help you identify and navigate your own creative path that leads from your gifts—your unique combination of skills—to your goals, where you make a living doing things that matter.Links:https://dschool.stanford.edu/book-collections/creative-hustlesamseidel.is (Personal)hiphopgenius.org (Portfolio)k12lab.org (Company)https://streetcode.org/Gallup data: State of the Global Workplace, 2022: https://www.gallup.com/workplace/349484/state-of-the-global-workplace.aspx?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=gallup_access_branded&utm_term=&gclid=Cj0KCQjw54iXBhCXARIsADWpsG-dvSXXa2CHuDpQAysF3ES20y1fYBEQb3EycTtImjIUtnsDfi7I5lYaAsPtEALw_wcBLaRussell https://allhiphop.com/breeding-ground/larussell/Chaselove https://www.instagram.com/chaseloveyall/?hl=en
This is a Prototype
Scott Witthoft is as an educator, designer, and author. Wielding knowledge from his past life in the practice of forensic structural engineering, he is sought out for his expertise in space design — teaching & speaking widely. As a former Stanford University d.school fellow, Scott is also a co-designer of the d.school’s space and a co-author of Make Space, a tool for creating collaborative environments. He pursues his life and work with a mix of whimsy and rigor, and brings people along for the ride with grace and care. It’s been a treat to be a tiny character in his journey through design and education, and this project, 27/7 is a glimpse into his adventures. Prototyping is a way to test an idea to see if it can be successful before investing too much time and too many resources. But it’s not only designers who “prototype” as they work. A skateboarder tries a new trick; that’s a prototype experience. A chef experiments with a new dish and new ingredients; that’s a prototype experience, too. Once a prototype is made, the creator gains knowledge about what worked and what didn’t, what should be used again and what should be trimmed from the experience.Links:https://twitter.com/scaevolaehttps://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/623452/this-is-a-prototype-by-scott-witthoft-and-stanford-dschool/9781984858047/https://www.wiley.com/en-us/Make+Space%3A+How+to+Set+the+Stage+for+Creative+Collaboration-p-9781118197325This Is a Prototype - Publisher site:https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/623452/this-is-a-prototype-by-scott-witthoft-and-stanford-dschool/Make Space - Amazon site:https://www.amazon.com/Make-Space-Stage-Creative-Collaboration/dp/1118143728Scott Witthoft Blog:https://scottwitthoft.medium.com/Scott Witthoft on Linkedin:https://www.linkedin.com/in/switthoft/Scott Witthoft - ‘Prototyped’ - Linkedin newsletter:https://www.linkedin.com/newsletters/prototyped-6972653362039177216/Make Space on twitter: https://twitter.com/makespacebook
What Teens Say About What They Watch
The Center for Scholars and Storytellers works with leading social scientists to develop research insights and tools that are useful for content creators crafting authentic and inclusive stories for youth (ages 2-25). We work with a wide range of organizations from traditional media, tech and gaming, consumer products, and public health and education. When content is created from a research-informed perspective that is authentic and inclusive, it can deliver strong financial returns and support the mental health of the next generation so they can thrive and grow.Dr. Yalda Uhls is the Founder and Executive Director of CSS.
