I think people in Rio and other cities could use visualizations the way I do and apply the 4-step strategy I've piloted since 1993 in their own cities. Just needs a leader with the vision to do this....and better resources than I've ever had.
Here's a concept map that I created to show people who are using their own blogs to make sense of the ideas I share. http://tinyurl.com/TM-BlogNet-Map I hope I'll be able to add a link to you and/or your students in the future, and that you'll connect with the ideas of the other people I point to.
My hope is that you and others from different universities will engage individual students, or teams of students, in web quests and research work that parallels what my own interns have been doing. Let the students dig through my sites, and create papers and presentations where they describe a Tutor/Mentor Connection type strategy applied to their own city, with teams from universities, hospitals and/or business serving as leaders. As students do such work it can be shared on forums like this, and in MOOCs and other places that connect people and ideas to each other.
Thanks for joining the Tutor/Mentor Connection on Ning. I started this forum in 2007 before Facebook, LinkedIn and other platforms became dominant. I've kept it going in past few years as a place I could coach interns who work with me in Chicago and as a place others could see a template for their own efforts. Please introduce yourself and follow the links to other sites with more of the information and ideas I've been collecting and sharing online since 1998.
