Spoons and Opportunities

“The NVIV (Next Vista Inspiring Video) series of posts are written by Rushton Hurley and designed to provide students and teachers with fascinating discussion prompts.”

In https://www.nextvista.org/spoons-and-opportunities/, Rushton features Narayana Peesapathy who has created edible cutlery.

Rushton gives the following prompts to accompany this video:

“How many different opportunities can you identify in this short story? Who benefits from each opportunity?

What else might you need to know before making a decision on whether to invest in a company like Bakeys Edible Cutlery?”

I love the idea that this man saw a problem in his country and thought of a way to make a difference. This would be a great introduction to have students look at a problem within their local area, state, or nation and try to think of ways that they could make a difference in solving the problem. Would the solution help solve other secondary problems such as employment and economic issues?

Please check out the video and think of other prompts you might come up with. Please share.
