How To Build a High-Performing Digital Team

How To Build a High-Performing Digital Team | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

 

Digital skills are in high demand and short supply. But first things first — how do you define a digital team when nearly everything is digital?

 

Digital teams are responsible for developing, testing, and implementing a strategy to reach and engage target audiences through digital channels like web, mobile, and social. While other groups may draft the messaging, a digital team works hand-in-hand with marketing and product leaders to curate and create digital-first content strategy. Most often reporting through the CEO or CMO, digital teams may also be responsible for implementing cross-channel analytics, surfacing relevant emerging trends, and providing comprehensive guidelines. As institutions have weathered the seismic communications shift from managed brand broadcast to real-time community interaction, digital teams have stepped in to manage listening platforms and identify opportunities for engagement. Finally a successful digital team will build a strong partnership with IT, who owns critical technology infrastructure and associated services.

50 Questions To Promote Metacognition In Students - Te@chThought

50 Questions To Promote Metacognition In Students - Te@chThought | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

"Using the right questions creates powerful, sometimes multiple answers and discussions. Aristotle said that he asked questions in response to other people’s views, while Socrates focused on disciplined questioning to get to the truth of the matter.

 

Ultimately questions spark imagination, conjure emotions, and create more questions. The questions asked by a teacher or professor are sometimes more glaringly valuable than the information transferred to the students. Those questions spark a thought, which leads to a fiercely independent search for information.

 

If students are the ones gathering that information then they’re the ones learning it and student-driven learning cements lessons into the students’ mind making any lesson more powerful with this strategy. Even though the following list of questions are broken into Mathematics, Literature and Science and Social Science, it’s really just a set of philosophically challenging questions that should be applied to any learning environment.

 

The questions are unrestricted and open the mind up to unfettered thought, perfect for innovation and understanding. The sections begin with Mathematical Questions because for the purpose of this list they’re the most general and therefore the most useful."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 2, 9:46 AM

Educational managers and reformers are quite caught up in assigning a number to the learning children undertake. It makes more sense to make the learning enjoyable. Teaching is an invitational event which brings children into safe spaces where learning can happen.
