What the bleep is a Talent Community?

What the bleep is a Talent Community? | Education Alchemy | Scoop.it

  ” A Talent Community is a place, sometimes online, that is created for targeted, qualified individuals to engage with company representatives to develop a sustainable pipeline for sourcing, recruiting, training and development,”

 

So if the concept of talent communities are so murky and wishy washy why should companies give it any effort? Because relationships are built on things like trust, engagement, and personal stories, and that is what sets a talent community apart.

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers | Education Alchemy | Scoop.it

How about after you find the apps, do you know how to evaluate their pedagogic implications ? Are they educationally valid ? Do they target skills you want your students to work on ? Are they flexible enough to let students learn in different settings ? Are they student friendly ?

Interesting application, but the content has the same trouble that many of the rubric available on the web: It says nothing:
Ove Christensen's comment, December 9, 2012 3:38 AM
Well I think you should see it as a help for reflection on apps and use of apps. No tools are doing the hard work for you but they help you to remember what to cover.
Jim Lerman's comment, December 9, 2012 2:44 PM
@Cristian...I don't see it the same way. The criteria, in my opinion, do provide a useful framework for judging the efficacy of a web app. The value in the criteria is implicit; if one shares the values inherently stated in the criteria (for example, "authentic practice of targeted skills"), then I think the criteria are indeed helpful. If the values and meaning of the criteria do no speak to you, the reader, then I can see where one could feel they do not say anything. As Ove says, "no tools are doing the hard work for you."

Designing learning in the Digital Age, Thursday 25 October 2012 Adelaide

Designing learning in the Digital Age, Thursday 25 October 2012 Adelaide | Education Alchemy | Scoop.it

‘Designing learning in the Digital Age’ is based on the 10 global meta-trends identified in the New Media Consortium’s 2012 Retreat Communique.
Modelling a ‘flipped classroom’ approach where participants will be actively curating their own learning, and will take away something more tangible than just ‘new knowledge’.  The one-day event will be followed by four weeks of synchronous and asynchronous activities so that participants can continue their learning, sharing and networking.

Participants Required for Study in Emergency Management Teacher Training through Game Based Learning

Participants Required for Study in Emergency Management Teacher Training through Game Based Learning | Education Alchemy | Scoop.it

Are you a teacher? Do you like game based learning? Would you be interested in participating in a study? The study is about how to train teachers for emergency situations in school through game based learning. Emergencies on school property are caused by a wide variety of uncontrollable events. For some countries the threat of earthquakes is a priority while others fear hurricanes, school shootings or the spread of disease. In preparation for the unpredictable, many schools now develop an emergency management plan in anticipation of crisis events.

Retention and Development of Great Talent

Retention and Development of Great Talent | Education Alchemy | Scoop.it

"Corporate leaders often fail because the organization's structure is wrong: key players don't have budgets or authority, the company moves too slowly and the structure promotes destructive conflict. Companies often fail to recognize, let alone solve, the design/talent problem – they throw training at it, when they should instead redesign the organization to help talent thrive."
