Empathy and Action—Don’t Give Up!

Empathy and Action—Don’t Give Up! | Let us learn together... | Scoop.it

Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?
—“Walden,” Henry David Thoreau

 

A thought for your new year: humans aren’t the only creatures who look out for “auld acquaintances” in this tough and sometimes indifferent world. I’m talking about empathy. A recent news story attracted a lot of attention by showing how a lab rat would help another rat without the promise of a reward. It even bypassed a treat to free its cage mate from an uncomfortable container, and shared its stash of chocolate chips (confess: would you?). Empathy isn’t exclusive to Homo sapiens, said the scientists who ran this experiment, “it is part of our biological inheritance.”...
 

Whether we’re peace-making ravens or distressed mice or compassionate humans, we can all risk opposition—or giving up a treat—to bring about change. Happy new year.

Curating Information & Making Sense of Data Is a Key Skill for the Future [Research]

Curating Information & Making Sense of Data Is a Key Skill for the Future [Research] | Let us learn together... | Scoop.it

The Institute for the Future and the University of Phoenix have teamed up to produce, this past spring, an interesting report entitled Future Work Skills 2020. Thank you Robin Good for sharing and curating this research!

 

By looking at the set of emerging skills that this research identifies as vital for future workers, I can't avoid but recognize the very skillset needed by any professional curator or newsmaster.

 

It should only come as a limited surprise to realize that in an information economy, the most valuable skills are those that can harness that primary resource, "information", in new, and immediately useful ways.

 

And being the nature of information like water, which can adapt and flow depending on context, the task of the curator is one of seeing beyond the water,

to the unique rare fish swimming through it.

 

The curator's key talent being the one of recognizing that depending on who you are fishing for, the kind of fish you and other curators could see within the same water pool, may be very different. 

 

 

Here the skills that information-fishermen of the future will need the most:

 

1) Sense-making:

ability to determine the deeper meaning or significance of what is being expressed

 

2) Social intelligence:

ability to connect to others in a deep and direct way, to sense and stimulate reactions and desired interactions

 

3) Novel and adaptive thinking:

proficiency at thinking and coming up with solutions and responses beyond that which is rote or rule-based

 

4) Cross-cultural competency:

ability to operate in different cultural settings

 

5) Computational thinking:

ability to translate vast amounts of data into abstract concepts and to understand data-based reasoning

 

6) New media literacy:

ability to critically assess and develop content that uses new media forms, and to leverage these media for persuasive communication

 

7) Transdisciplinarity:

literacy in and ability to understand concepts across multiple disciplines

 

8) Design mindset:

ability to represent and develop tasks and work processes for desired outcomes

 

9) Cognitive load management:

ability to discriminate and filter information for importance, and to understand how to maximize cognitive functioning using a variety of tools and techniques

 

10) Virtual collaboration:

ability to work productively, drive engagement, and demonstrate presence as a member of a virtual team

 

 

Critical to understand the future ahead. 9/10

Thanks for sharing this from Robin's stream. These skills sets could form the basis of a self-assessment for would-be curators, although they're more conceptual - than practical/tactical. Thanks for sharing and must go rescoop it with a credit you and Robin of course

The sites mentioned here, well most of them, solve at least one problem really well and they all have simple web addresses (URLs) that you can easily learn by heart thus saving you a trip to Google.

 

01. screenr.com – record movies of your desktop and send them straight to YouTube.
02. bounceapp.com – for capturing full length screenshots of web pages.

Twitter 101: 55 Tips to Get Retweeted on Twitter | Let us learn together... | Scoop.it

Retweets, you have heard about them, you know what they are but you aren’t gettin’ them.


For some reason you just can’t seem to get the engagement you are seeking, desiring and yearning for in social media and Twitter.

 

You may be new to Twitter and simply don’t know what the heck you are doing, how to get a retweet or why the retweets even matter. This post won’t teach you what Twitter is but provides good tips for tweetable content which you need regardless if you know what you’re doing or not (joking).

 

Or you may be a Twitter and social media veteran who just wants to boost your ego, increase your Klout score or simply show off for Grandpa this weekend how popular you are on the social waves?...
