Storyboard Text

  • How do I use this thing?
  • Hey Sarah, can you believe that kid can't use an iPad? That's crazy!
  • Hey now, we don't want to "make our own lives ordinary"
  • Steve's social environment has traps to put him in a situation where he has never had to use an iPad.
  • Steve is from a rural village in northern Canada, he's never used an iPad!
  • Bob does not "possess the quality of mind essential to grasp the interplay of self and world." Bob assumes Steve lives in a similar world to him.
  • I see, I realize not everyone lives the same lives as we do
  • Sarah points out that Bob's life is not "typical of the time period we live in". Not everyone knows how to use an iPad.
  • Yeah, I bet a million bucks you don't know how to ice fish!
  • Sarah is using her sociological imagination to understand the larger historical scene. She understands that Steve does not know how to use an iPad because of his mileu.
  • Bob begins to open up and use his own sociological imagination. He is making the familiar strange to understand Steve's point of view.
  • Steve understands "the relations between the two within society" where Bob has not learned how to do things Steve learned to do in his private orbits.
