Amira Mustapha Founder and Executive Director of Art Defined Productions Create three groups of people and send them to the three different link locations to complete the puzzle. Ultimately they will realize they need items from each other to solve their puzzle. It a way to show collaboration versus competition More info on how I created the puzzle in Notes
I’m brand new to Miro and working on creating a large board for facilitating an all day workshop for a smallish group. I initially started by copying over some templates, but as I got comfortable I just started creating my own thing. I’ve discovered that I’m having to use text sizes of 900 for example, and the zoom is set to just a few %. Is there any problem with this? Should I be targeting using “normal” text sizes and doing everything at 100%, or is it totally irrelevant as long as I keep things in proportion to one another?I’m worried that I’m going to get even more hours into setting this up and suddenly realize that actually having apparently huge everything actually screws me up somehow.Any thoughts much appreciated! Thank you,
I’ve been inspired by the work of Team @Hued and some other designers/users on Miro where the Miro space is made 3 dimensional. So I have decided to try this for myself. Man, it takes a bit work! I certainly have to configure myself to think of depth and perspectives.For the record, I’m using vector art in .svg to reduce size.If you have been trying this way of building Miro, share your own creation in the comments! My inspiration:https://miro.com/miroverse/the-amsterdam-house/ PS. I have very limited artistic bones in me!
There is one way often used by coaches is to describe the inner conflict of a person with different voices and giving them a graphical optical background.I have this created in miro - This example shows the inner conflict of a person who hears from his boss:I have choosen you for this task, because you’re the only one who can do this.The inner conflict of this person is:He is totally exausted and without any energy on one side and on the other side he feels flattered by his boss. He likes to shout at his boss but his inner voices telling him not to do so … I really love to work with miro in a coaching process … it offers me so much to show: Michael
After using Miro for 3+ years, it’s still fun when you discover something you didn’t know.In this example, I will group the four images and then double-click the top-left one (the cat with the fishbowl) and move it separate from the group. Next I will do the same with the puppy. This saves me from Ctrl+Shift+G to ungroup, rearrange, and then Shift+drag to select all and Ctrl+G to group. I didn’t see any mention of this in the Structuring Board Content → Grouping Help Center article, but I expect it’s a feature and not a bug.
As an Agile Coach I used to work with clients in-person - I love that ❤️Conducting a remote workshop isn’t just the same - nor should it be. Both formats have their benefits and disadvantages, but as a facilitator I can’t just do the same in a remote setting what I used to do in-person by using a digital whiteboard. I reflected upon this little dilema in a recent article of mine. As a facilitator of a remote workshop I have to think about much more deliberatly then for an in-person workshop. I have to create and set the stage perfectly so that my audience isn’t drifting off. ➡️ Here you find my article: The missing 10 minutes before a remote workshop ⬅️❓I would love to know, what do you do differently when preparing a remote workshop compared to an in-person workshop? And what do you think about the tips I layed out in my article?⬇️Below you can find an example that I explain in the article how I try to set the stage even before the actual workshop has started.
Hello, I am Nestor Zegarra, who recently graduated from Johannes Keppler University Business School in Linz, Austria. Due to covid-19 restrictions, I had to find a solution to conduct online qualitative research. Therefore, I chose to use MIRO for developing a focus group discussion.The different characteristics allow my research to collect the necessary data. The interviewees were able not only to express themselves but also to interact with each other. I believe that MIRO has great potential to develop more and more applications in different aspects of interaction and production of its users' data.I would like to know if anyone else has had a similar experience in using MIRO for research.
A very insightful study by PwC on #remotework trends. Zooming on the 'physical office' conundrum, it seems like employers and employees have different expectations on what the physical workplace should deliver.In my mind, I can see a promising middle ground that is the hybrid model. Simply because none of those factors quoted by both employers and employees are impossible to achieve while working remotely.What I'm proposing (in fact, a couple of my clients are running away with this idea!) is the concept of 'Virtual Middle Place' (somebody has a snazzier moniker?) It is a hybrid workplace enabled by collaborative and interactive platforms such as Miro, Mural and Stormboard.It is a middle place for an organisation where some people will choose to work from home, some in the office, and most will switch their environments once in a while. A very fluid working environment, yet always connected.Using #virtualmiddleplace, facilitative leadership theories and techniques, I believe I can help
Hi community! My first post here, so nice to be part of this community.I’ve been exploring using Miro for causal loop diagrams or diagrams often used in Systems Thinking. Miro has been good for capturing elements (as text or sticky notes) and makes connecting them with different lines easier. The alignment tools allow me to align text with each other, but for more complex graphs this becomes more difficult.In an ideal world, I would love if Miro could automatically adjust the elements for easy readability. This would save me from moving each element and line around when we add more.Does anyone here use Miro for similar diagrams and found a way Miro can help focus on building and evolving a diagram, instead of fidgeting around with the layout?Thanks in advance.
It has been a different year, one that pushed us to reinvent ourselves and the way we work. I am pleased to invite you to visit the MARK-19 exhibition on Miro, which I willingly initiated. Together with three other classmates, we carried out the first online exhibition of Lund School of Architecture!. Link to Miro *: In March 2020, about 11 months ago, we could no longer be freely physically together in our studios in A-building at Lund University.When I asked my friends studying in different universities how they handled this change in the study procedure, I became familiar with the Miro platform as a whiteboard for teamwork and collaboration. Simultaneously, when I thought about not having an exhibition during my master’s studies, I felt the mission was incomplete. And most of all, the desire to be in our big group again, the Lund architectural family, which is valuable to me although short in presence. All of which went hand in hand with an idea to initiate this way. To use Miro a
For a world-travelling facilitator and trainer, March 2020 felt like my entire professional world had collapsed. Borders closed, clients either cancelled or postponed engagements, and suddenly my professional calendar looked pretty empty.What can I do when most of my work requires people-to-people engagement and interaction?And then I discovered Miro, and what a journey it has been! Read about my experience and my ‘Top 5 tips to transition into a virtual facilitator’:https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/making-jump-transitioning-virtual-facilitation-isman-tanuri/I’d love to hear your thoughts and your own experience too in the comments. Tell us your stories!
When our team started planning new projects for the current period, we decided that it was time to have everyone participate and commit. We also wanted everyone to know about everyone else’s projects, and we wanted to provide a chance for everyone to participate in anything that was of their interest and matched their skillset. Obviously, we jumped directly to Miro.In our board, a few things happen:Everyone participated planning the projects. Everyone shares updates on the activities related to the projects they are involved with. Everyone provides feedback!The last point is the one I am most excited about. During our monthly meetings, the whole team jumps into the Miro board to write questions, comments, suggestions, and provide help. We have never been a better connected team (even if we are working from home).
I've just been trying to use Miro for Story Mapping using the Story Mapping template. It was looking good to start with but after a while when I came to need to organise Activities and items on the backbone row it all just fell apart and I had to give up.The behaviour of the Activity and Backbone row items basically breaks the entire usefulness of the User Story Map template for me. The way I story map, I have Activities at the top, then items on the backbone row form the 'walking skeleton', these are the minimum set of non-optional stories that enable the system to work. To start with items under the backbone might be details or sub-tasks of backbone items, but further down the map, perhaps several release slices down, tasks at that location still relate to the activity, but may not relate directly to whatever task was on the backbone row. These later tasks might represent alternative user journeys through the system, or quality of life improvements for the activity.The problem is tha
I’m looking for some advice and guidance on using miro for a working group. If they are looking to post many documents, weblinks, images etc within key themes - what is the best way to organize this? Folders? Multiple boards? Is it searchable? Can they be nested within each other? If this a good tool for curating content/cataloguing content - or would you use a different tool such as google drive? I like the visual nature of it, easy ability to upload - but I am not sure if Miro is a good tool for such work. We are new at using it so any advice would be great. Thanks,Julie
Hi Everyone,I’m new to Miro and I’m a bit stuck with something. Hoping that a Miro Hero can come to my rescue.I’m working on an internal help centre for our support team (20 members) and need to create categories for around 200 articles. I want the support team to create the categories and sort the articles via card-sorting.I’ve set up a Kanban board with 45 cards (article titles) and columns for groups. I’m pretty happy with the board so I’m ready to share it with the participants to start getting their input.Here’s where I’m stuck.I need help with understanding the best way to share my Miro board for card-sorting so that each participant has their own version to work on. I want them to sort the cards (articles) and name the groups individually and independently of each other.How can I do this?Is the only way to create duplicate boards for each participant or is there are more sophisticated way?I’ve been searching for 2 days, so please let me know if you have the steps or links to an
I use Miro quite a lot to make pdf’s for presentations, whenever I need something quick and not too fancy. It is so much quicker than e.g. indesign and allows me to work collaboratively. No more sending presentation-final2-finalfinal.pdf back and forth.The textsize in miro, when creating a A4 frame, seem to be set for some very different dpi than a usual text-editor. Font size 12 from google doc’s equal roughly font size 67 in Miro. This is a bit confusing when working with the intent to print. For now, I made this guide for myself to stay with roughly the right size. I wonder if there’s a secret trick to this somehow? If not, maybe a toggle for intent-to-print, or setting dpi or something could be a solution?(In general, I think Miro carries some potential as a simpler and more accessible alternative to traditional pdf-making tools. Some more traditional text editing tools would help with this, justified paragraphs etc.)
Who here works in a learning and development or training capacity at their company or uses Miro for those purposes?I’d love to hear how you’re using it to foster engagement and facilitate learning in the workplace.What boards are you using?What templates are most useful for you?what works? What doesn’t?
Hi, Miro Community. I created a 1-hour video tutorial of (almost) all Miro features and functions. Each specific function is time stamped in the Youtube video description. The video covers with navigating, then left side menu functions, onto tips for sharing boards with others, and finally the bottom left menu’s presenting and facilitating options. I hope it helps new users as well as experienced users who might see something they’ve never used. The video is public and sharing is welcome.www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJG2LUmyv2E&feature=youtu.be
I have way too many board with the default logo. It was hard to find anything. I tried selecting the remarkable area of the board so that I could visually see it. But that was also not great.Then I found out how to "craft" them. I recorded a small how-to in case you want to do that, too.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EQu94hjaDs (I couldn't embed the video for some reason)In short it is:put an emoji on the board click on the title of the board click "select preview area" zoom in on your emoji hit doneAs soon as you refresh your dashboard, your board will be updated. step 3: click "select preview area"step 4: zoom in on your art Refresh your dashboard and your thumbnail should be updated
I have this dream of being able to fluidly and seamlessly present and work with a group using Miro and Zoom, and what I would really like to do is to use both touch to navigate the Miro workspace, and a pen or stylus to write and draw, just as I would on an actual whiteboard.I'm hoping for a single interface to address both.I have tried using a “standard” touch screen monitor, but found the one I tried was only sensitive to a finger tip and the drawing/writing detail was not fine.I have a Wacom Intuos tablet, but have found Palm Rejection with this tablet is not supported in the Miro interface. When using the stylus I have to turn off Touch manually with a switch on the side of the tablet otherwise when I rest my hand on the tablet to draw, it zooms and pans the Miro workspace unpredictably. I find this is clunky and slow when I am trying to get into the flow of working and presenting to a group.My current workaround is to use a mouse for navigation, and then the tablet for writing. I
