Brainstorming and Beyond describes the techniques for generating ideas verbally, in writing, or through sketches. The first chapter focuses on brainstorming, the foundation method for ideation, which is a complex social process building off of social psychology principles, motivational constructs, and corporate culture. Brainstorming is commonly portrayed as an easy way to generate ideas, but in reality, it is a complex social process that is often flawed in ways that are not self-evident. Chapter 2 discusses Brainwriting, which is a variation on brainstorming in which each person writes ideas down on paper and then passes the paper to a new person who reads the first set of ideas and adds new ones. Since there is no group shouting out of ideas, strong facilitation skills are not required, and more often than not, Brainwriting results greatly exceed those of group brainstorming in a shorter time because ideas are generated in a parallel, rather than serial, fashion. Brainwriting is useful when time is limited, groups are hostile, or you are dealing with a culture where shouting out wild or divergent ideas might be difficult. Finally, in Chapter 3, readers learn about Braindrawing, a method of visual brainstorming that helps practitioners generate ideas for icons, other graphics, user interface layouts, or Web page designs. Each of these methods provides readers with ways to generate, present, and evaluate ideas so they can begin building a strong foundation for product success. Learn the proper techniques for generating ideas with limited time, hostile audiences, and limited facilitation support Explores efficient processes for analyzing the value of ideas Examines ways to generate visual as well as textual ideas

The digital interactive projection system is a staple of nearly every music classroom in the United States. By allowing teachers to show students methods and outcomes from a computer, these systems have become a necessity for reaching students who grew up as digital natives. But, as author and distinguished music educator Catherine Dwinal demonstrates, such systems can be much more meaningful pedagogical tools than simple replacements for chalkboards. In this book, she offers practical tips, tricks, resources, and 50 activities ideal to use alongside classroom projection systems. She focuses especially on tips and activities for beginning teachers, giving them the confidence to take a step out of their comfort zone and learn new ways of engaging students with technology. More than this, she provides reference materials that will serve as a trusted reference resource for years to come.

Recently, community-based HIV/AIDS organizations have expressed interest in developing more formal links with their counterparts in other countries and have begun to develop such links. The purpose of this publication is to enhance the ability of such organizations to undertake twinning with organizations in other countries. Chapter 1 introduces the concept of twinning, its benefits, and forms of twinning, and lists several examples of past or current twinning projects. Chapter 2 discusses the conditions that should be present before an organization takes on a twinning project. It describes characteristics of successful twinning, explains the advantages of twinning being a two-way process, and identifies several challenges associated with twinning projects. Chapter 3 considers some of the cultural issues that can arise in international twinning projects, including those related to intercultural understanding, communications, North-South dynamics, and language. The last chapter explains how the organization can get involved in a twinning project. A step-by-step format is used to provide guidance for the exploration stage and the planning stage. This is followed by information to help the organization implement and evaluate twinning projects.
