Online Systems for Behavior Change


I've always believe that to truly have impact on performance, we need to be experts at Behavior Change. I've written a few times over the years on aspects of solutions that ultimately drive a change in behavior that leads to performance improvement. I'm now working on an very interesting project that is designed to lead to some important changes in behavior that has already had dramatic impacts. But we want to push for more, so ultimately this post is asking for help, please comment or tweet (add @tonykarrer) on:

 

What online systems have you seen that ultimately drive behavior change?

 

What do these systems do that leads to behavior change?

Future work skills - 2020 [pdf]


Via Bucky Dodd, Gust MEES
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

"This report analyzes key drivers that will reshape the landscape of work and identifies key work skills needed in the next 10 years. It does not consider what will be the jobs of 

the future.  

 

To be successful in the next decade, individuals will need to demonstrate foresight in navigating a rapidly shifting landscape 

of organizational forms and skill requirements. They will increasingly be called upon to continually reassess the skills they need,
and quickly put together the right resources to develop and update these. Workers in the future will need to be adaptable
lifelong learners"

 

Love the trajectory here and implications for teachers (and learners).  I see progress, in terms of people aligning what they do with what is needed.  We still have a long way to go.

My first reaction on reading the list of groups involved was negative. The University of Pheonix has a dog in this fight. They will want digital technologies to at the forefront. That is OK, but we need a balanced view of this emerging world and we need to question some of the views presented. We are not on the cusp of a relationship between humans and their digital tools. We have passed this cusp and each day we are in that emergent world. That kind of comment oversimplies a complex reality full of uncertainty.

Recherche très pertinente qui apporte un vent de fraîcheur.  On n'y parle pas des emplois du futur, mais plutôt des compétences ou habiletés requises

Martijn Spek's curator insight, April 24, 2013 4:26 AM

Interessant rapport waarbij 'Change' in organisaties en bij mensen een zeer nadrukkelijke rol speelt. De tekenenen zien we nu al bij organisaties ontstaan. Het onderzoek is welliswaar primair gericht op Amerika, maar door de verdere globalisering en internationalisering interessant voor een ieder die met mensen werkt of gaat werken!

Teaching kids goes beyond textbooks and classroom lessons. It has to include teaching them to open their minds and how to think for themselves.

This controversial book says that the way we educate millions of American children alienates students from a fundamental pleasure in learning, and that pleasure in learning is essential to real engagement, creativity, intellectual entrepreneurship, and a well-lived life.
