Product and process

Posted on: May 24, 2015

This is my long-running series on products and processes. WordPress tells me that this is at least the eighth in the series.

First I feature a product like this LEGO-inspired music video.

Then I marvel at the process that its maker reveals in a behind-the-scenes video.

The four-minute music video required over unique 5000 frames.

The product is for consumption and might create admiration and a following for both the band and the stop-motion animator. The process creates insight, inspiration, and opportunities for learning.

But if view counts are any indication, people prefer the finished product over the messy processes. This has been true of all the videos I have featured so far.

Schools also tend to value products and do not focus enough on processes of learning. But it is the latter where the most meaningful and powerful learning happens.
