The Social Business Economy - Infographic

The Social Business Economy - Infographic | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Is it about having your brand on Twitter or Facebook? Is it about private social networks?

Certainly, these all play a part. But what social business is truly about a “shift”, a move from enterprises attempting insulate itself from disruption and instead greeting it warmly.

To pull this off, organizations need to establish a more transparent environment, both externally and internally. A social business allows organizations to better solicit and understand customer feedback, to react in real-time to industry changes and not be caught flat footed. Internally, it allows communication to go from a top-down model to a back-and-forth, up-down strategy. (We’ve called this the “bathroom moment” in the past.)

Social Media Practices to Expect in 2013

Social Media Practices to Expect in 2013 | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Social media has rapidly become an important part of many peoples’ lives, not just as a way to keep up with friends and family, but also for professional networks, exploring fields of research, shopping, sharing content and fostering online communities.


It has also become a crucial aspect of a businesses’ online presence- now a firm can connect with consumers and tailor their online relationships with customers, other brands, and with employees.
Predicting quite what is going to happen in this ever changing digital landscape isn’t easy, but it’s certainly worth noting some of the rising trends and having a look ahead to 2013.

I love that point Martin! I think people call it social because of the personal element to it as opposed to advertising and things like that, especially because it's so interactive in nature. Do you have a suggestion as to what to change the name to?

12 Principles Of Mobile Learning | TeachThought

12 Principles Of Mobile Learning | TeachThought | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"Mobile Learning is about self-actuated personalization.

 

"As learning practices and technology tools change, mobile learning itself will continue to evolve. For 2013, the focus is on a variety of challenges, from how learners access content to how the idea of a “curriculum” is defined.

 

"Technology like tablets PCs, apps, and access to broadband internet are lubricating the shift to mobile learning, but a truly immersive mobile learning environment goes beyond the tools for learning to the lives and communities valued by each individual learner.

 

"It is only within these communities that the native context of each learner can be fully understood. Here, in these communities that are both local and digital, a ”need to know” is born, knowledge accrues incrementally, progress resonates naturally, and a full picture of each learner as a human being fully emerges."

Scaffolding for Deep Understanding

Scaffolding for Deep Understanding | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

That learning takes place in a social context is a significant issue. This is why collaboration or ‘cooperative learning’ has become so popular – but it has to be more than social collaboration. Cognitive collaboration needs to be encouraged. As students communicate their ideas, they learn to clarify, refine, and consolidate their thinking. Schoenfeld has said that, ‘Groups are not just a convenient way to accumulate the individual knowledge of their members. They give rise synergistically to insights and solutions that would not come about without them.’

So what does 2013 hold for social media in the workplace? It looks like many of the big (and sometimes overhyped) promises that have surrounded social media – better insight into customer behavior, improved office productivity with internal networks and, of course, signficant, measurable ROI – will finally begin to bear fruit. Here’s a look at five ways social media will impact the way we work and the bottom line in 2013.

Dick Cheuk's curator insight, December 14, 2012 1:00 AM

I just finished the TED book "Why School?" by Will Richardson which shows similar view with this article.  I think the problem we are facing is the disconnection between business wourld (talents consumers), schools (talents providers), parents (talents providers - kids spend more time with their parents than in school) and students (talents themselves). 

 

Even with the rapid changing environment, business thinks they still need skills same as ten years ago which shape what schools should teach.  Our schools follow this path and ensure that no matter what kinds of kids they have, they all become the same when they come out of schools.  Parents are forced to play this game because they want their kids to success (the word success is mainly defined by the business world).  The kids… when do they have a choice? And who has asked what they want to learn?

 

There are a lot we need to do to radically transform our education system.  We need to rethink what is the purpose of education, whose interest is more important, the business world or the kids?  Sir Ken Robinson’s TED talks provide some insights.

How you can contribute

Don't be afraid to editanyone can edit almost every page, and we are encouraged to be bold! Find something that can be improved and make it better—for example, spelling, grammar, rewriting for readability, adding content, or removing non-constructive edits. If you wish to add new facts, please try to provide references so they may be verified, or suggest them on the article's discussion page. Changes to controversial topics and Wikipedia's main pages should usually be discussed first.

Remember – you can't break Wikipedia; all edits can be reversed, fixed or improved later. Wikipedia is allowed to be imperfect. So go ahead, edit an article and help make Wikipedia the best information source on the Internet!

At Wikipedia, 150 dedicated people serve 450 MILLION users.

Knowledge work is broken - can social fix it?

Knowledge work is broken - can social fix it? Presentation from Social Business Forum 2012 in Milan, Italy.

Knowledge workers spend from 15% to 35% of their time searching for information.15% of the time is spent on duplicating existing information.

The effective usage rates of enterprise software are down compared to two years ago, with users experiencing productivity losses of around 17%.It’s like giving everyone Friday off.

As work is being distributed across locations and organizations, current digital work environments - primarily designed for personal productivity - make people more isolated and less aware of what is happening at work. It cripples their ability to collaborate and be productive.

Thomas Salmon's curator insight, December 12, 2012 5:49 AM

Is the growing gap between skills via education and those required for work also partly related to this gap that exists in the workplace between digital distribution and barriers to collaboration and productivity? It seems logical that knowledge workers who have learned to work in smarter and more social ways online will be those that are both 'hooked in' and also educated from the start in more team based and participatory environments.
