Causarano in the article "Identity presence and knowledge building: Joint emergence in online environments?" quotes the words of Bakhtin that “the “self” is only able to know itself (its identity) through its encounter with an “other”, and hence the self can only be constituted through its discursive interaction with the other.” 
So we can say that dialog and communication with other people play important role in the identity formation.

How To Use Neuroscience For Insight Into The Social Customer

How To Use Neuroscience For Insight Into The Social Customer | Barefoot Leadership | Scoop.it

According to Dr. A.K Pradeep  - http://bit.ly/wEo2Id - our senses take in 11 million bits of information every second.

 

A great deal of that information comes from the eyes but our other senses transmit a large amount of information to our brains as well.

 

Consciously our brains can at most take in 40 bits of information every second. That means that 99.99% of the information that we take in shapes our decisions subconsciously.

 

In order to successfully impact the 40 bits of conscious information that the social customer takes in, you have to craft content and messages grab attention, engage the emotions, and are retained in the memory.

 

How To Create Effectiveness

Effective content that grabs a consumer’s Attention and is Engaging creates Awareness Effective content that grabs a consumer’s Attention and is Memorable becomes a Novelty Effective content that is Memorable and Engaging leads to intent to Purchase

The key word in all of these scenarios is Effectiveness.

 

So what is it that creates Effectiveness?

 

Context

Context is defined as the interrelated conditions in which something exists or occurs. With this definition in mind you begin that understand social effectiveness is multifaceted.

 

The context of your message includes:

Platform Location Time Online Activity

Neuroscience teaches of the in order to have an impact on the social consumer you must craft messages that gain attention, engage the emotions, and are memorable in an effective manner.

 

While you may have a creative message much more is need if you are the reach the 40 bit of consciousness that consumer have to receive your message.

What happened to all the railroads? Have you ever pondered that question?


In the 1800s, the railroad industry in the U.S. was booming. New businesses were sprouting up every year, and inventors were creating newer and more efficient locomotives. First it was steam, then it was petrol, then it was diesel. Times were good, and America had a bright, rail-based future.

 

So what happened? Why isn’t the country blanketed in rail routes and why doesn’t everyone hop on the metro-line in front of their house each day to go to work? Today, the railroad companies are a shell of what they once were. Why? Because the automobile came along and ran them into the ground.

 

But did this have to happen?

 

No. There were things railroad companies could have done to cater to the people who made their businesses possible, but instead they dug in their heels and said, “We’re in the railroad business,” and they stayed the course.

MIT's New Free Courses May Threaten (and Improve) the Traditional Model, Program's Leader Says - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

MIT's New Free Courses May Threaten (and Improve) the Traditional Model, Program's Leader Says - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Barefoot Leadership | Scoop.it

The recent announcement that Massachusetts Institute of Technology would give certificates around free online course materials has fueled further debate about whether employers may soon welcome new kinds of low-cost credentials. Questions remain about how MIT’s new service will work, and what it means for traditional college programs.

 

On Monday The Chronicle posed some of those questions to two leaders of the new project: L. Rafael Reif, MIT’s provost, and Anant Agarwal, director of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.

 

They stressed that the new project, called MITx, will be run separately from the institute’s longstanding effort to put materials from its traditional courses online. That project, called OpenCourseWare, will continue just as before, while MITx will focus on creating new courses designed to be delivered entirely online. All MITx materials will be free, but those who want a certificate after passing a series of online tests will have to pay a “modest fee.”

Curators Key Requirement: Critical Thinking

Robin Good: Critical thinking is a key strategic skill needed by any serious professional curator. 

 

"Critical thinking provides the keys for our own intellectual independence..." and it helps to move away from "rashy conclusions, mystification and reluctance to question received wisdom, authority and tradition" while learning how to adopt "intellectual discipline" and a way to express clearly ideas while taking personal responsibility for them.

 

Key takeaways from this video:

 

Critical thinking refers to a diverse range of intellectual skills and activities concerned with "evaluating information" as well as our own thought in a disciplined way.
  Critical thinking is not just thinking a lot. To be an effective critical thinker you need to seek out and be guided by "knowledge" and "evidence" that fits with reality even if it refutes what the general consensus may want to believe.
  Critical thinkers cultivate an attitude of curiosity and they are willing to do the work required to keep themselves informed about a subject.
  Critical thinkers do not take claims at face value but utilize scepticism and doubt to suspend judgement and objectively evaluate with facts the claims being made.
  Critical thinkers should evaluate information on the basis of reasoning and not by relying on emotions as claims the factuality of a claim cannot be solely based on the level of emotion that accompanies them or the fact that they may be believed by certain groups.

 

Highly recommended for all curators. 9/10

Thank you for sharing this video and the importance of critical thinking. It is so easy to get into the mindless consumption trap and making ourselves slow down, read, think, question, and seek is so important. It is all about the resisting the urge to click, but to hit the pause button and make yourself think
Mayra Aixa Villar's comment, February 22, 2012 10:14 AM
Grazie come sempre, Robin! You always share valuable information and this video is a great source to reflect on the importance of critical thinking to refine thought processes when curating content. Content curation certainly requires and develops "better thinking".
Gregory Thackston's curator insight, March 17, 2013 4:54 PM

Critical thinking is a key component in addressing autonomous adversity and the need to collaborate in decision making.
