If you are looking for a bird's eye view on what alternative collaboration tools are now available for different kind of projects and purposes, I do have what you are looking for.


The new Best Online Collaboration Tools 2014 directory is now public. It contains over 370 collaboration tools organized in over 25 different categories ranging from video-conferencing to screen-sharing, collaborative reviewing and many more.


The tools listed have all been checked and verified and represent my own personal census on what is available today for each one of the categories listed. There is no attempt (yet) to provide individual evaluations or recommendations, though I have tried to subjectively rank tools in each category according to their value and importance.



The directory is updated weekly.

New suggestions, comments and request for revisions and changes are highly welcome.


Free to use.

5 trucchi per migliorare la propria produttività

5 trucchi per migliorare la propria produttività | E-learning arts | Scoop.it

Mirko D'Isidoro - FreelanceWebDesigner.it's curator insight, May 2, 2014 9:44 AM


Ti sembra sempre di dare al massimo mentre sei al lavoro ma alla fine del giorno credi che avresti potuto fare di più? Per aumentare la produttività sul luogo del lavoro servono precisione, concentrazione e metodo


Ma i fattori esterni sono sempre in agguato: stanchezza, telefonate, decine di mail a cui rispondere. Per quanto tu creda di riuscire a eliminare ostacoli e distrazioni, spesso i tuoi peggior "nemici" sono dietro l'angolo (o dietro la scrivania al limite).


Ecco alcuni consigli che possono essere utili per rendere il tuo lavoro ancora più produttivo:


  1. Non controllare la mail ogni 10 minuti, ma stabilisci dei tempi ben precisi. Ad esempio, io controllo la casella di posta la mattina prima di iniziare, prima di pranzo, a metà pomeriggio e la sera.  Rispondi solo alle più importanti, lascia le meno urgenti per quando sarai stanco, cioè prima di staccare per il pranzo o la sera. 

     
  2. Indossa vestiti comodi e che ti fanno sentire a tuo agio: sembra uno scherzo ma gli abiti che indossi ti aiutano a svolgere al meglio il tuo lavoro anche quando non c'è nessuno a guardarti. Per cui evita giacca e cravatta, ma allo stesso elimina abiti troppo casalinghi e sportivi: inconsciamente tenderai a rilassarti e perderai produttività.

     
  3. Tutti i più grandi, dagli artisti agli industriali sono partiti da un'idea che avevano in mente. Per cui, immagina il prodotto o il progetto che andrai a realizzare e poi inizia a realizzarlo. Attento però a non perdere troppo tempo nell'ideazione: anche in questo caso stabilisci dei tempi precisi, prenditi una, due ore, un giorno, il tempo che ti serve; ma una volta scaduto il limite inizia subito a metterlo in pratica.

     
  4. Ne avevo già parlato in altri post: l'attività fisica è fondamentale per un professionista. In pausa pranzo o la sera, quando preferisci, dedica almeno un'ora al tuo corpo. Ti aiuta a staccare la spina e a eliminare lo stress.

     
  5. Anche l'alimentazione è importante: spazio a frutta, verdura e a tutte le fonti di vitamine. Cerca di fare piccoli spuntini e fai un pranzo leggero. Quando ti senti stanco, molla la presa per 5 minuti e concediti un caffè, possibilmente fuori all'aria aperta. Attento a non esagerare: 3 al giorno sono più che sufficienti.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, April 28, 2014 4:13 PM

Learning can make sense and is similar to how we make sense of other things. We do it gradually through experiences and building knowledge as we go. Talking, thinking, and reflecting about learning are the key factors to understanding. In the sense-makers guide,  Watkins writes that there are four teaching practices that can help learners make sense of their learning:

 

> Notice learning

> Have conversations about learning

> Reflect on your learning

> Make learning an object of learning.

Blended Learning: 10 Trends | E-learning arts | Scoop.it

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

You Are No Longer Allowed To Present | E-learning arts | Scoop.it

Here are some reasons why your presentations are BAD!   We know that so many of you use programs like PowerPoint or Prezi because they have been around for a while, and it is what you know, but change is not always a bad thing, especially if that change can lead to presentations beyond your wildest imagination.

Gavin Meikle's curator insight, March 10, 2014 6:02 AM

A (mostly) great post with some sound advice for better presentations.  Here's my take on it .....
 

Design

At the risk of upsetting all those wonderful Graphic Designers out there, I would recommend going easy on the fancy designs.   They are not essential.  What is essential  is a clear simple strategy with one idea per slide, minimal text, no bullet points (yes I mean it!) and clear simple pictures, graphs and diagrams to illustrate your verbal messages.
 

Content
Developing compelling content is important but try to avoid using a script when you deliver.    reading scripts leads to flat, lifeless delivery and makes it much harder to respond, "on the fly2 to your audience.  Instead use  a few cue cards with key points only or a simple mind map.  Either will keep you on track without restricting your ability to improvise in response to audience reaction.

 

Story Telling
To true. Stories are much more engaging that lists of facts or endless graphs.  Stories also create emotional engagement which is needed if you want the audience to be motivated to do something after the presentation. 

 

Humour
Yes it is powerful but it is risky too.   Telling jokes rarely works and can lead to all sorts of problems (poor timing, inappropriate content etc.)  Instead use gentle self deprecating humour.  Be willing to poke a little fun at yourself and the audience will warm to you. 

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 10, 2014 10:43 AM

My take on good presentations:  1) Story 2) Content: Restrain your left brain 3) Design: the experience 4) Humor (optional).  Presenting starts with story and uses the visual design to reinforce and add new dimensions to your message. Design the experience, not the slides. Humor works if it's actually funny--not contrived. I've seen a lot that doesn't. Humor is optional.  If it comes naturally, great.  Focusing on story and image is mandatory.  Use serious restraint with putting words on your slides.  Words are processed by the rational, 'left-brain' which takes your audience out of any emotional experience and into thinking and linear processing.  Take them on a journey, don't give them a lecture.  If you feel compelled to give your audience words, give them a handout when you're done.
