Randal Charlton had great strokes of midlife success — then he didn't. He did well co-founding Asterand, an ethically sourced human-tissue sampling business, but lost his shirt on a jazz club and a cattle-ranching enterprise to produce low-fat beef.

The 9 dumbest ways to measure social media

The 9 dumbest ways to measure social media | Adult Education and Organizational Leadership | Scoop.it

By Kent LEWIS

 

There are a host of issues created by meaningless metrics, which include but are not limited to: wasting time, wasting money, and making bad decisions based on inaccurate, incomplete, or incomprehensible data.

 

More depressing than being easily gamed by humans is the fact that Klout scores have been vulnerable to manipulation by robots and related tools. As such, it's dangerous when companies use it to make decisions, from hiring to assessing the "influence" of fans and rewarding (or ignoring) them accordingly.

 

The fix: Take Klout with grain of salt and a shot of tequila. To get the most value from Klout, focus on trending your score and benchmarking against competitors.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, December 26, 2012 1:59 PM

How does real leadership development happen?  Through development.  The authors  20 item list  point out  main differences between training and development.  Training is convenient and can reach many people, but only development make the grade in agiiity for adapting to change.


This article also reminds me of the limitations of ADDIE, a training design approach still used in many companies. By the time leadership training gets there (after design), there isn't there anymore.  ~  D

Digital Badges: A More Viable Currency for Returning Adult Students? | Kyle Peck

Digital Badges: A More Viable Currency for Returning Adult Students? | Kyle Peck | Adult Education and Organizational Leadership | Scoop.it

Higher education is based largely on the assumption that students want degrees, and therefore they want the courses that are required to earn those degrees. And that assumption has been valid. Degrees have been a “ticket” that offered the possibility of admission to a desirable career (if it wasn’t sold out).

 

But as more and more people sought and received degrees, the increasing number of tickets available decreased the probability that the ticket would guarantee admission. And, as more and more institutions were printing tickets based on their own criteria, it became more and more difficult for the gatekeepers to know which ticketholders should be admitted. Many of the applicants already possess what appears to be a valid ticket, and the tickets carry very little information: Name of institution/Name of degree. That’s it.

 

In the next few years, I predict we’ll see more and more adult students interested in accumulating digital badges, as opposed to wanting course credits or degrees. Digital badges are more modular, they do a much better job of describing what the badge holder can do, and they can be assembled in ways that highlight how an individual stands out from the crowd. They can illustrate how he or she has the core qualifications required for consideration, and also has a series of related skills, perspectives, and attributes that add up to competitive advantage. And the quality of each badge can be interrogated with a single click of the mouse.

Thank you ratzeister! Silence is often looked at negatively and it shouldn't be so; quiet in learning is necessary as well.
