AP is thrilled to be sponsoring the May issue of AI Practitioner, focused on Intergenerational Appreciative Inquiry in Conversation and in Action, edited by Marge Schiller, Matt Moehle and Peter Whitehouse. Full of inspiring stories about learning and sharing from different perspectives, articles are divided into five groups: Intergenerational AI Methods, Intergenerational AI and Business, Intergenerational AI and Communities, Intergenerational AI and Education and Intergenerational AI and Thriving Families, with three or four articles in each.
Suzanne Quinney, AP’s co-director, says: ‘Appreciating People are delighted to sponsor the May issue of AI Practitioner, where business, education and communities show what they can achieve by reaching out and connecting with different age groups. They share their successful methods to “go between in order to create the beyond”. We appreciate the connection as our latest AI product, How to be More Awesome (a resilience journal and workbook for young people) fits so well into its generative theme of Intergenerational Appreciative Inquiry. The process of co-designing and co-creating How to be more Awesome with teachers and young people embodies the themes of this issue.’
If you’d like to see more information and a short film created by young people on the journal, you’ll find more at www.bemoreawesome.net.
In AIP’s Feature Choice article, Towards a Model for Engaged Governance: Citizen Conversations for a Participatory Democracy, Jacqueline Wong looks at the lessons learned from Singapore’s citizen engagement process as its democracy turns 50. Gail Simon brings together reports on the place of AI as a form of collaborative or reflexive inquiry in the Research Review and Notes and Matthew Moehle, Roopa Nandi and Hardik Shah, editors of AI Resources, have focused on how generational diversity is something to be celebrated for mutual benefit.
‘Please enjoy the richness and diversity of the articles in this edition – thanks to all the dedicated team at AIP who produced it,’ adds Suzanne. Here are three extracts from the journal which are freely downloadable. We’ve shared the Intergenerational AI intro, Intergenerational AI research review and Intergenerational AI resources for you to read.
