Empathy in Design Thinking ~ Future of CIO

Empathy in Design Thinking ~ Future of CIO | Creating a Digital Tech Community | Scoop.it

Imagine how different the world would be with the right dose of empathy to connect the minds and touch the hearts.

 

Empathy has always been a challenge for design thinking and overall leadership and management practices. Since now the digital era is also an age of empathy due to its nature of hyperconnectivity and overcomplexity, there is the need to think about how to project efficiently both for the mechanical part and the human part of the design process. Having to deal with the opposition of the working force. But why is empathy so important in design thinking, and what are those best empathetic practices?

Learning with 'e's: Reinventing learning spaces

My most recent blog post, Hi-Tech Campus? highlighted the need for better design of learning spaces in higher education, but the principle applies to all educational environments. I outlined some inherent problems in my own university campus, and asked others on Twitter to suggest what they thought the campus of the future might look like. Actually, the campus of the future, wherever that may be, is already being reinvented right now, and the present and the future are blurring. The need for students to be able to access their content, peers and tutors at any time and in any place necessitates redesign of many environments around a typical university or school campus.

The Impact of the Internet on Society: A Global Perspective | OpenMind

The Impact of the Internet on Society: A Global Perspective | OpenMind | Creating a Digital Tech Community | Scoop.it

The Internet is the decisive technology of the Information Age, as the electrical engine was the vector of technological transformation of the Industrial Age.


This global network of computer networks, largely based nowadays on platforms of wireless communication, provides ubiquitous capacity of multimodal, interactive communication in chosen time, transcending space. The Internet is not really a new technology: its ancestor, the Arpanet, was first deployed in 1969 (Abbate 1999). But it was in the 1990s when it was privatized and released from the control of the U.S. Department of Commerce that it diffused around the world at extraordinary speed: in 1996 the first survey of Internet users counted about 40 million; in 2013 they are over 2.5 billion, with China accounting for the largest number of Internet users.


Furthermore, for some time the spread of the Internet was limited by the difficulty to lay out land-based telecommunications infrastructure in the emerging countries. This has changed with the explosion of wireless communication in the early twenty-first century. Indeed, in 1991, there were about 16 million subscribers of wireless devices in the world, in 2013 they are close to 7 billion (in a planet of 7.7 billion human beings). Counting on the family and village uses of mobile phones, and taking into consideration the limited use of these devices among children under five years of age, we can say that humankind is now almost entirely connected, albeit with great levels of inequality in the bandwidth as well as in the efficiency and price of the service.


At the heart of these communication networks the Internet ensures the production, distribution, and use of digitized information in all formats. According to the study published by Martin Hilbert in Science (Hilbert and López 2011), 95 percent of all information existing in the planet is digitized and most of it is accessible on the Internet and other computer networks....

I love the comment on the hydrant slide reading " getting information from the internet is like drinking from a fire hydrant".

Searches always bring TOO much information so you feel overwhelmed. Also, we now ALWAYS struggle in determining what is good information, and what is trash. We do indeed feel like we're drowning at times, or just being "hosed" by sites that just waste your time aggregating traffic. I wish there was a browser that would eliminate the needless flow of advertising and extraneous mind numbing trash!

I'm not sure I agree with Brent entirely.  Creating content capable of mobile delivery that is both accurate and engaging requires professional skills.  Locating, Evaluating and Ethically using mobile learning content takes a bit of training too.


I do completely agree that 21st Century information access shifts power and control from traditional sources like government agencies and universities to people everywhere.  


Learning how to learn, and becoming information fluent is what I teach people how to do.  It's not ivory tower stuff.  You can learn it independently or via organized online classes or (gasp) in an enlightened classroom.  There's the power! CHOICE!
