Things to Think With
Stephen P. Anderson
When something is too challenging to work out ‘in our heads’, we make things to think with. Think tools, maps, drawings, and designed spaces. But how do these 'tools for thought' increase our human capacity for understanding and group collaboration? We'll answer these questions and more, as we take a critical look at studies and toolkits being used by teams.
This talk will draw on the presenter's latest book, Figure It Out: Getting From Information to Understanding, has been described as “required reading for designers and anyone else who needs to explain things.”
Stephen P. Anderson is a design leader focused on workforce learning and organizational development. And he’s on a mission: To make learning the hard stuff fun, by creating ‘things to think with’ and ‘spaces’ for generative play. As a keynote speaker, Stephen challenges and inspires audiences as he exposes the quirky connections between games, play, learning, interactive visualizations, and other exciting topics.
