Hao Dinh is our current volunteer Challenge Community Champion. You'll see him popping up across the Creative Confidence Challenge with handy tips and words of encouragement – and posting community updates here like a true champion!
We are in week two of the Inspiration phase and we’ve had awesome discussions on observations, experiences and insights associated with inspiring young people to cultivate their creative confidence. To help further the conversation, I'm experimenting with prototyping visual ways of connecting similar inspirations using Pinterest – all in order to enable OpenIDEATORS to better collaborate and build on each other’s inspirations. Given there are currently hundreds of Inspiration postings in the challenge, I'm hoping that posting on Pinterest will be an especially handy way to group similar discussions from OpenIDEO and visually present them as a collection.
Check out the following Pinterest board, which aggregates six inspirations relating to “embracing failure”.
- Check out the Pinterest “Embracing Failure” board
- On the board, you will currently see 6 pins associated with OpenIDEO Creative Confidence Challenge inspirations on the topic of embracing failure. I'll be adding more over time – with your help! As you add new inspirations to our challenge or come across ones related to embracing failure, add the url to the comments section at the bottom of this Field Notes post. I'll be updating the Pinterest board regularly so keep checking back for new pins.
- On the Pinterest board, you can click on each of the pins to redirect you to back to the OpenIDEO posting so you can read the story in more detail.
- Add your comments to any of the pinned inspirations to further our conversation on the topic of embracing failure
- Click on the “Build on this” button on the right margin of any inspiration post to add your own inspiration relating to embracing failure.
After visiting the Pinterest board and posting your comments and/or new inspiration on OpenIDEO, please let me know what you liked, disliked, or what can be improved about this process. How might we use something like Pinterest to improve collaboration within the community? I'm excited to hear what you think.
