Going SOLO: An introduction to the taxonomy everyone’s talking about

Going SOLO: An introduction to the taxonomy everyone’s talking about | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

The Structure of Observed Learning Outcome (SOLO) taxonomy aims to show pupils how to develop sophisticated responses to questions by getting them to examine their thought-process as their understanding of a topic improves. I began using SOLO in 2011, and it is now integral to my teaching.

SOLO defines five stages of understanding for any topic: prestructural, unistructural, multistructural, relational and extended abstract. The first three involve gathering relevant information. The other two are about using that information: linking facts and findings, questioning existing ideas about the topic, and forming new theories.

Ariana Amorim's curator insight, August 26, 2013 6:29 AM

"Here are some research-based suggestions for school leaders on how to start cultivating a positive school climate:

1) Assess the current climate. 

2) Create a shared vision—but start with personal visions.

3) Work together to carry out the shared vision—and make it fun!"


I think these are also good tips  to create a positive work climate in organizations. A positive work climate it's the real key to Organizational Success.

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.
