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."

Bloom’s Taxonomy: The 21st Century Version ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Bloom’s Taxonomy: The 21st Century Version ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"So much have been written about Bloom’s taxonomy; one click in a search engine will flood your page with hundreds of articles all of which revolve around this taxonomy. Only few are those who have tried to customize it to fit in the 21st century educational paradigm. As a fan of Bloom’s pedagogy and being a classroom practitioner, I always look for new ways to improve my learning and teaching, and honestly speaking , if you are a teacher/ educator and still do not understand Bloom’s taxonomy then you are missing out on a great educational resource.

 

The following article is a summary and a fruit of my long painstaking research in the field of Bloom’s taxonomy. The purpose is to help teachers grow professionally and provide them with a solid informational background on how to better understand and apply Bloom’s taxonomy in classrooms (or for Distance Learning - reviewer comment) in the light of the new technological advances and innovations." from Source: http://www.educatorstechnology.com/

ghbrett's insight:

This blog post is loaded with infographics, charts, links, and other good information to help educators and trainers who are using or interested in Bloom's Taxonomy. This is a very useful resource. Note that the writer has written this as a classroom teacher. However, this reviewer believes that the information applies to Distance Learning as well.

Knowledge management presentation McKinsey

"'Knowledge management presentation McKinsey' This Prezi Slideshare from the McKinsey group explains how they use Knowledge Management (KM). They view KM in two forms: Possession based and Practice based. Possession based KM is where 'Knowledge in an entity/object, and can exist separate from people via codification.' Where as Practice based KM is when 'Knowledge is "Knowing" and in in separable from human activity.' The presentation goes on to demonstrate the differences between the two and how Practice based KM is more supportive and productive for ongoing culture of an organization due to it's close contact with those persons who develop and use knowledge both tacitly and implicitly." from source: http://youtu.be/btsTaNQJhW4

ghbrett's insight:

This was a very informative presentation about the two side of Knowledge Management. Over time I have been exposed to Possession and Practice. Intuitively I followed the path of Possession based KM due to my interest in the culture and workforce aspects of KM. This is a brief 10 minute overview, but packs in a lot of good and sound comparisons between the two types of Knowledge Management. I highly recommend it.

 

One additional note: This presentation was developed using Prezi. The designers used the application very well and didn't make the viewer dizzy by spinning, zooming too fast, or using other visual tricks that overwhelmed the content. Again, Well Done!
