Language is the bedrock of our cultures and societies.
As with fish in water, we go about our daily business without paying much attention to the language around us and how it influences us.6-8-5 is designed to combat this pattern by forcing us to generate lots of ideas in a short period of time.The activity can then be repeated to hone & flesh out a few of the best ideas.They can continue to work on separate ideas, or begin working on the same idea.But the 5-minute sketching sprint should always be done silently and independently.Information architect and author, Jorge Arango developed Semantic Environment Mapping years ago to make visible the everyday language through which we so naively swim.Object of Play The Semantic Environment Canvas will help you understand the language, rules, and power dynamics that make it possible for people to accomplish their purposes in particular situations—or hinder them from doing so. If you have more than six people, consider breaking them into groups and assigning separate environments to each group.Problem-solving tasks are suitable for adults and some of the challenges may be adapted for young people. It defines what we do, how we do it, and why we do it.Duration of Play 20 minutes – 40 minutes Materials Required To run a good session, you will need: Strategy When collaborating, people must be clear they’re using language in the same ways.However, they often take the words they use for granted; they don’t question their meaning.
