What is The Brain project?
We know that digital tools are rapidly advancing their functionality as it relates to assisting humans with making sense of large amounts of data, information, and knowledge. As educators, we encounter a plethora of data, information, and knowledge. If you are like me, you have digital articles, paper journal articles, and other relevant material and documentation stored in a variety of places. The Office of Success Coaching has obtained a user-friendly digital tool that can not only store information and data but can process information and create mind maps, that help to create connections between all the information.
The Brain is a digital tool that can warehouse data and knowledge in one place, while organizing it for meaning and intentionality. It is user friendly and purposefully creates links between all data points regarding accumulated about student development, student achievement, persistence, success coaching, mentoring, the importance of intentional academic advising, major selection, degree guidance and completion, career readiness, and many more. The Brain software is the first and only thought processor designed to allow users the opportunity to capture ideas and information and form it into a network. A bonus of this product is that it that matches the way we think!
The Benefits of Digital Thinking

At the core of preparing for a society where knowledge is king, is incorporating a new way of framing what we acknowledge, understanding what we believe and acclimating to how we respond to and crafting a more equitable and inclusive higher educational community. Design Thinking and Human Center Designed is pivotal to this conscious way of being and drives the operations of the Office of Success Coaching.

If also affords us the opportunity to improve on the way we develop policies, establish procedures, and expand on our praxis.
