I like this quote from the article: "Learning is the new black – it’s everywhere; and that’s exactly where learning specialists should be. Net workers need more than advice (training), they need ongoing, real-time, constantly-changing, collaborative, support." ~Harold Jarche

How to Really Listen | Career-Life Development | Scoop.it

...listening isn't easy. The more we listen to others, the more likely we will react — or overreact — to what they say. Listening, it turns out, is much harder than speaking. We have to allow things we might disagree with to hang in the air. We have to move over a little and create space for those things to linger...

Katherine: In this article, Jay Cross makes some good points about the importance of informal learning. I particularly like his analogy about formal vs. informal learning.

 

Excerpt:
"Nothing is more important to business success than the knowledge and know-how of workers.  ... Organizations that fail to leverage informal learning leave buckets of money on the table. In a knowledge era, it is irresponsible to disregard the prime means of creating, sharing, and replenishing intellectual capital."

 

"Informal learning is the path to organizational agility and profits. It also respects workers and challenges them to be all they can be."

 

"Informal and formal learning are the end points of a continuum. On one end, formal learning is like riding abus: The driver decides where the bus is going, while the passengers are along for the ride. On the opposite end, informal learning is like riding a bike: The rider chooses the destination, the speed, and the route. The rider can take a detour at a moment’s notice to admire the scenery or use the bathroom."

Curation vs. Blogging: The Difference Is In The Focus

Curation vs. Blogging: The Difference Is In The Focus | Career-Life Development | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If curation is all about finding and sharing great content, what's the difference with what so many bloggers have been doing until now?

The difference, according to Deanna Dahlsad at Kitsch-Slapped, is in the focus. While bloggers often cover just about anything that intercepts their online wanderings, curators are characterized by a strong focus on a specific topic.  

 

Here is a key passage from her article: "Many bloggers spend their time selecting what they consider the best of what other people have created on the web and post it at their own sites, just like a magazine or newspaper.

 

Or they provide a mix of this along with writing or otherwise creating their own content. Not to split hairs, but curation involves less creation and more searching and sifting; curation’s more a matter of focused filtering than it is writing.

 

Because content curation is expected to be based on such focused filtering, it begins far more based on topic selection.

 

This is much different from blogging, where bloggers are often advised to “just begin” and let their voice and interests accumulate over time to eventually reveal a primary theme.

 

...

 

Some collectors just collect what they like as they stumble into it. …Sometimes, collectors just keep piling up stuff, no matter what it is. Even if this isn’t hoarding, it’s not-so-much of a purposeful pursuit.

 

But professional curators, those who manage collections for museums or other organizations, and serious collectors, they maintain a specific focus.

 

And rather than stumbling into items, they continually seek for specific items.

 

The definition dictates the curation — and everything from funding to their continued employment is based on how well their collection meets the collection’s definition.

 

While blogging success may be thought of in many different ways, the success of content curation lies in how well you define, search/research, and stick to your subject."

 

Rightful. 8/10
