WYSKR's goal is to be a platform that not only connects users to the ideas they care about, but that also motivates and enables them to ask questions about these ideas.
Why? Because WYSKR believes in the power of curiosity, and the single best way for people to cultivate their curiosity and put it into action is by asking questions.
WYSKR's focus on asking questions has been inspired by the ideas of people like Grant Wiggins & Jay McTighe, Dan Rothstein & Luz Santana, Hal Gregersen and Michael Stevens:
Hal Gregersen is a professor of innovation & leadership at INSEAD, executive director of the MIT Sloan Leadership Center, coauthor of the book The Innovator’s DNA, and founder of the 4-24 project. He is author of the HBR.org blog post "Use Catalytic Questioning to Solve Significant Problems", and in the TEDx video above he discusses the importance of asking questions.
Michael Stevens is the creator of the award-winning Vsauce collection of channels on YouTube, which together have over 13 million subscribers. Each episode focuses on a big, interesting question like "what if the earth stopped spinning?" In the TEDx video above, Stevens talks about why we ask questions and what makes Vsauce programming so compelling.
