Mark Twain’s vision is empowered by the interactive book-format that both speed up the navigation back and forth, as well as simplifies the iReader’s efforts to discover her individual book path. This e.g. in comparison to a “course” where the term in itself and how it is managed forms a one-way-street through the content. In this sense, the book’s multifaceted aspects are definitely a format for the digital age, while a course assembly-line process is more of the industrial age.

“He who loves practice without theory
is like the sailor who boards a ship
without a rudder and compass
and never knows where he may cast.”
Leonardo Da Vinci
Leonardo wrote and drew more than 5000 pages of notes and sketches about everything that came to his mind. The keys to his methods are based on practice, theory and visualisation to making creativity work. Where you according to Leonardo should start to work on detail after detail in order to create a whole “image”. We highly recommend to read Walter Isaacson’s biography about Leonardo since it gives a very insightful review about his life, work and methods.
Making creativity work with the 6iModel
Leonardo’s notebooks also formed an important pillar when developing the 6iModel, whose purpose is to work as a “rudder and compass” to all kinds of projects where creativity is the driving force. The 6iModel is described in the book “Learning Design in Practice for Everybody” by LarsGoran Bostrom It is available in many bookstores and the printed hardcover edition can be ordered directly from the B-InteraQtive Publishing.
“If a writer knows enough about what he is writing about, he may omit things that he knows. The dignity of movement of an iceberg is due to only one ninth of it being above water.”
… or to use Charles Dickens words:
“An idea, like a ghost, must be spoken to a little before it will explain itself.”
“Writing has laws of perspective, of light and shade just as painting does, or music. If you are born knowing them, fine. If not, learn them. Then rearrange the rules to suit yourself.”
Finding that unique perspective will write your story. The explorative journey of finding and adapt it to your own prerequisites is a vital part of the writing challenge. Happy Summer Writing!
