Knitting the World Together a Million Relationships at a Time

Knitting the World Together a Million Relationships at a Time | All things data, digital and designed | Scoop.it

Two global education champions, Asia Society’s Tony Jackson and Soliya’s Lucas Welch, have published blog posts this week that go to heart of the mission of our Connect All Schools consortium. Both posts are stark reminders of how little US and Muslim relations have changed since September 11, 2001. Both posts, however, are also optimistic in how much more capable we are—with new tools, resources, and knowledge—to positively affect these relations.

"While at the SLA conference last week, I attended a talk by Mary Ellen Bates (Bates Information Services Inc.) called “Marketing for the Rest of Us: A Guide for Introverts”. Perhaps the target audience was the shy and timid librarian, but I found the session useful for anyone in outreach and marketing of libraries. Here are five key points I took away from the talk: . . . "

Reimagining Business with a Social Mindset

This video and article and download full report is from Deloitte Consulting. It is timely and relevant!, If you're wondering what social business is all about and how it relates to your business, you'll find lots of insights to help you understand and act on this information for your business today.

 

Here is an excerpt from a response by Sandy Petland from MIT Labs that gives you just a glimpse into what you'll find in this material:.

 

"Social business is built on top of social networks, which most organizations already have in place.

 

For years I've been studying connection science” – studying how relationships and personal interactions shape society and business.

 

**Social business is a manifestation of that thinking, with companies transforming how they organize and operate based on

 

individual roles, social networks and the power of connections.

 

**Social business can have huge potential inside and outside the enterprise, across employees, customers, prospects and business partners.

 

Here is a takeaway that caught my attention:

 

Start at the beginning -

 

**Map the individuals in your potential social networks

 

**know what behaviors you are trying to affect and how you might meaningfully engage these into persistent communities

 

**Use this information to guide the development of tools, roadmaps and roll-out plans – not the other way around.

 

**Focus on results that can be measurable and attributable

Cleveland Public Library Is A “Maker Space”… | All things data, digital and designed | Scoop.it

"The Cleveland Public Library is getting a high-tech upgrade — one it says is the first of its kind in any U.S. library. Today, the library unveils TechCentral, its downtown destination for computing and emerging technologies. The center will give visitors access to dynamic, interactive technology unrivaled in any library in the country, said library Executive Director Felton Thomas. Anyone with a library card can toy with tablet computers, print plastic 3-D models, engage in wireless computing and do much more in the 7,000-square-foot center on the lower level of the Louis Stokes Wing.

“Many of our folks don’t have an opportunity to buy this technology,” Thomas said. “Our job is to provide it.”

Community Reference: Making Libraries Indispensable in a New Way | American Libraries Magazine | All things data, digital and designed | Scoop.it

Embedding librarians in local organizations is the cornerstone of community reference. Assignments for embedded librarians vary from branch to branch so as to strategically target organizations that will provide the greatest partnership opportunities. DCL staff are embedded throughout the county in local schools, city councils, metro districts, economic development councils, and even a local women’s crisis center.

Curation in Education: Great Examples At Work

Curation in Education: Great Examples At Work | All things data, digital and designed | Scoop.it

Robin Good: During the recent virtual and live conference Emerge2012, in which I had the opportunity to run a workshop on Content Curation for Education, I have collaboratively started a collection of great examples of curation for education.


My goal was the one of showcasing some good examples of curated collection that were either focusing on education or that some clear education use/application.

 

It is a starting point.

Suggestions on what would be valuable to add, to my initial set of examples are highly welcome. Use the comments section here below or send a tweet to @robingood.

Startup culture and the future of academic libraries: An interview with Brian Mathews | Education Futures | All things data, digital and designed | Scoop.it

" . . . Mathews’ white paper “Think Like a Startup” makes a compelling case that within 20 years many of the modern academic libraries’ services will be housed and run by other units across campus. Therefore, Mathews argues academic libraries need to forge new partnerships across campus, discover new ways to create value for their users, and experiment with radical new approaches to solving their most pressing needs. . . ."
