As long as it does not put the company at risk or jeopardize their innovations that may be a competitive edge. Discretion is the better part of valor?
Emily Rose Newton's curator insight, August 21, 2014 5:05 AM

17.

This article addresses the advantages of knowledge sharing online, particularly the power of social media and an online business model. By sharing our online knowledge and working together, we achieve the highest amount of growth and customer satisfaction. As the author explains, "We can ask questions of our Twitter followers and LinkedIn groups, or we can search blog posts and white papers for what we need and adapt it to our own projects, saving time and money in the process".

Google’s Project Loon: Balloon-Powered Internet for Everyone, Everywhere | What's Next Blog

"Google has launched (literally) Project Loon because two-thirds of the world’s population does not yet have Internet access. Project Loon is a network of balloons traveling on the edge of space, designed to connect people in rural and remote areas, help fill coverage gaps, and bring people back online after disasters.

 

Project Loon starts this month with an experimental pilot in New Zealand, with the launch of 30 balloons which will beam Internet to a small group of pilot testers. The experience of these pilot testers will be used to refine the technology and shape the next phase of Project Loon." from source: http://www.whatsnextblog.com/

First there was the idea of low, slow flying solar aircraft with internet radios to provide internet coverage over an area of say, a county. Now Google has upped the stakes with Project Loon. Using balloons at 20Km near the stratosphere in a mesh like network. This network with communicate among the peers in space to stations on the ground that will then spread the internet more widely. I will be curious to see how this progresses. You can find more about the project at:  http://www.google.com/loon/ ;  or watch an tech intro at: http://youtu.be/mcw6j-QWGMo a short informative intro at finally a more general video at:  http://youtu.be/m96tYpEk1Ao

Knoco stories: The Knowledge Management strategy map

Knoco stories: The Knowledge Management strategy map | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"You know I am a firm believer in business led Knowledge Management Strategy.

  At a meeting yesterday, I saw this presented in a very striking and visual way, through the use of a Strategy Map.

  A strategy map is a pretty well established way of mapping out the strategy of a company in a visual way, The approach was invented by Bill Kaplan, and is well described in this HBR article (from which the example to the right - a strategy map of Volvo Dealership - is taken). A strategy map can be linked to Balanced Scorecard, and can be used to explain why a company is choosing the initiatives that it has." from source: http://www.nickmilton.com/

10 Great Tools for Academic Research You Should Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Compared with how academic research was carried out in the pre-internet era, It seems like technology is really a godsend gift to researchers. From easy and unlimited access to journal articles to web tools that do the referencing and auto-syncing, everything has been digitized making it way easier for todays researchers to add to the body of the human knowledge than any time in history."

Knowledge Management and E-Learning (9781439837252) - book available now | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

Edited by Jay Liebowitz and Michael S Frank:

 

"The book's first part looks at KM practices in e-learning and covers techniques and methodologies. The second part contains several case studies looking at applications of KM to e-learning in businesses, government agencies, and universities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K., and Europe. The book concludes with a summary of future trends by experts at these organizations. This book ties knowledge management (KM) with e-learning as complementary approaches, highlighting the leading and emerging work being accomplished in this space. These chapters explain knowledge capture, retention, transfer, and sharing."

ghbrett's insight:

"The latest edition of the annual Internet Trends report finds continued robust online growth. There are now 2.4 billion Internet users around the world, and the total continues to grow apace. Mobile usage is expanding rapidly, while the mobile advertising opportunity remains largely untapped. The report reviews the shifting online landscape, which has become more social and content rich, with expanded use of photos, video and audio. Looking ahead, the report finds early signs of growth for wearable computing devices, like glasses, connected wrist bands and watches - and the emergence of connected cars, drones and other new platforms."

The Perpetual State of a Knowledge Management Project | CustomerThink

"What does this mean? Well, John divides KM projects into two groups, judged by the broader goals the project is designed to accomplish (separated by a Big K and little k, to be exact). “Little k” projects aim to capture new knowledge gleaned through solving customer problems and sharing them with employees and customers, while “Big K” projects are much more broad.

 

In our area of expertise, which John defines as “Big K,” we’re finding that organizations are truly struggling to keep track of information housed in an increasingly diverse and populated amount of internal and external systems. This means that KM projects are always ongoing; the systems in place to house relevant knowledge are never fully up to date." from source: http://www.customerthink.com/blog/

The Learning Practice

"THE LEARNING PRACTICE, founded by Melodie Hicks, serves organizations by engaging professionals in unique, rigorous and transformative programs that support individuals and groups on their learning journeys.

 

THE LEARNING PRACTICE offers innovative programs with three complementary goals: personal insight; new knowledge; and skill building. We use techniques grounded in empirically established learning principles.

 

By guiding participants through a process of discovery, giving equal focus to building personal insight and inspiration, subject knowledge, and skills and techniques, we support participants to shape their own learning.

 

One of the core goals of a learning program is to support the individual’s learning process, and because no two situations or participants are the same, THE LEARNING PRACTICE collaborates extensively with clients to tailor each program to their specific needs." from source: http://thelearningpractice.com/

ghbrett's insight:

This process is interesting to me in that the process engages "lifelong learners." I'll need to read more to better understand it and how it can be applied.
