Juan Miguel Galeas's curator insight, December 23, 2015 5:43 PM

¿Uber y Tesla son empresas que han provocado disrupción en sus mercados? La mayoría diría que sí. La respuesta realmente es no. Una de las palabras más usadas y menos entendidas es la innovación disruptiva o #disrupción, debido a que la mayoría que la usa no ha leído el artículo de Clayton Christensen, quien acuñó el término en 1995. "Disrupción" se refiere exclusivamente al proceso en el que una empresa explota un modelo de negocio o tecnología en un nicho desatendido por las empresas establecidas del sector, creando un producto sin las cualidades completas de los líderes, pero con una ventaja de precio que les permite ir ganando mercado. A través de mejoras sucesivas de la tecnología o el modelo, esta nueva forma de hacer las cosas empieza a ganar momento y llega a un punto donde es lo mínimamente buena como para que los usuarios de los productos habituales se arriesguen a probarla. La difusión de ese proceso inicia un proceso de traslado de clientes de las marcas establecidas a la nueva. Se ha producido una #disrupción.  La próxima vez que escuche a alguien usándola pregúntele si conoce a profundidad su significado. Haremos un favor a nuestra comunidad emprendedora e innovadora afinando mejor los conceptos para un ecosistema más potente y sano. Les dejamos el artículo de Christensen revisado por el mismo autor y actualizado en los cánones del 2015.  #GaleasJupiter

4 Phases of Inquiry-Based Learning: A Guide For Teachers

4 Phases of Inquiry-Based Learning: A Guide For Teachers | Learning & Performance | Scoop.it

According to Indiana University Bloomington, Inquiry-based learning is an “instructional model that centers learning on a solving a particular problem or answering a central question. There are several different inquiry-based learning models, but most have several general elements in common:

1. Learning focuses around a meaningful, ill-structured problem that demands consideration of diverse perspectives


2. Academic content-learning occurs as a natural part of the process as students work towards finding solutions


3. Learners, working collaboratively, assume an active role in the learning process


4. Teachers provide learners with learning supports and rich multiple media sources of information to assist students in successfully finding solutions

 

5. Learners share and defend solutions publicly in some manner”
