It’s all about our data

It’s all about our data | |

Platform capitalism is the ability of a common internet exchange medium to enable easy commercial transactions. Buyers of services get convenience, while sellers get a larger market. The spoils go to the owner of the platform, receiving a significant percentage of revenues. Most of these platforms are created when regulations and oligopolies make these transactions difficult by traditional means. Platform capitalism initially disrupts a sector that is poorly served. It requires four contributing factors.

  1. A platform: a centrally controlled application that controls the data on ll interactions and activities.
  2. A critical mass of users: tech-savvy users looking for an easier way to get something, usually requiring minimum human interaction.
  3. Desperate service providers: people with no ability to organize due to weak or non-existing trade unions in their field, who need to make up for a non-living wage, part-time, or contractual work.
  4. Lack of regulations and oversight: government agencies that either cannot keep up with technology advances, or political leadership that condones poor working conditions in the name of progress.

5 Tech Skills your business can’t live without

5 Tech Skills your business can’t live without | |
To stay relevant in your industry, your staff should master the skills behind this year’s hottest technology innovation.

But hey, it’s important to strive for innovation and make your business evolve amidst technological advances – not just once a year. That aside, there is value in using the year’s starting quarter to reevaluate your present skill sets and assess the areas where your departments can improve, grow, or learn.

Technology is the one area that no industry can afford to grow complacent about. It changes so quickly that the skills and tools you mastered and applied last year may already be outdated. In our rapidly evolving industry, the actual information decay rate is at 30 percent per year. This is according to Research in Labor Economics, making approximately a third of last year’s tech-related skills irrelevant.

But never worry, there’s an easy solution. Staying updated with emerging technologies and trends, even the skills required to master them – will help you be on top of the fast pace of skill disruption and keep you on track and ahead of the curve. You need continuous learning to maintain an ongoing edge over your competition.

[Infographic] Learning myths

[Infographic] Learning myths | |
The internet is a wonderful thing but one has to be careful not to believe everything they read.

Most people know that not all that is shared online is 100% factual. This is the case across nearly every topic, including the learning industry.

In some situations debates result. For example, there seems to be a never ending argument over the validity of learning styles. Much like politics, this topic is rather divisive.

But then there are the times you come across a fact that sounds like it could be true but things change upon further examination.

Most of the time the fact is partially true, so don’t feel bad about believing it! Often though there is more to the context that needs to be considered as well.

Below is an infographic (created by Digitec Interactive) that details three different myths related to learning.

You’ll notice that learning styles makes the list. I don’t think there is anything wrong with this but I would be hesitant about including broad generalizations (especially with relation to a hotly debated topic) in an infographic.

To be fair I don’t think that this infographic in itself is overly impressive, but I’ve decided to include it in this article because I think it is a good example of how we need to be careful in believing everything we read.

For lack of a better term I think that infographics can oversimplify complex topics. If any of these myths below spark your interest then I would encourage you to investigate them further starting with the sources that are referenced. This isn’t just true for this infographic but should be common practice when viewing any of them.

If we simply recite everything we read because it’s in a simplified visual then we are doing the learning industry a disservice.

CUED: La calidad. De los LMS a los MOOC... y a la enseñanza abierta en línea (7): Calidad en el aprendizaje en los MOOC como aprendizaje ubicuo

CUED: La calidad. De los LMS a los MOOC... y a la enseñanza abierta en línea (7): Calidad en el aprendizaje en los MOOC como aprendizaje ubicuo | |
Los MOOC y la enseñanza abierta online no son ajenos a los entornos ubicuos de aprendizaje. La tecnología ubicua permite al alumno realizar actividades educativas allí donde esté, y contar con los componentes de su entorno social de aprendizaje.

Desde hace tiempo la literatura especializada (Trifonova, A., March 2003) nos muestra interesantes y significativas iniciativas de integración de entornos ubicuos, los LMS, y ahora las plataformas MOOC, disponen en su totalidad de versiones APP.

Entre otras justificaciones para el aprendizaje móvil, y de paso una base sólida para persuadir a este sector de la industria, la constituye lo que Keagan (2005) llama "ley" de la educación a distancia según la cual
"No es con las tecnologías inherentes a las cualidades pedagógicas con las que se tienen éxito en la educación a distancia, sino con las tecnologías que están asumidas y son de uso generalizado por los ciudadanos”.

Should teachers use Twitter? This flowchart says probably

Should teachers use Twitter? This flowchart says probably | |
Should you use twitter?

That’s a loaded question with a lot of assumptions. But for digitally-inclined teachers in the 21st century, the answer is increasingly, yes. At least light use of twitter semi-regularly can increase

We’ve featured graphics from Sylvia Duckworth in the past. Teachers love her simple, colorful, and bright sketch notes. She’s even turned some of our content into these visuals, including our 12 Rules Of Great Teaching.

With this visual, she takes on the social network that is continuing to gain momentum on the ground in classrooms, and even for professional development purposes (see 8 Steps To Teacher-Led Digital PD). Though the graphic doesn’t make an insightful breakthroughs, it doesn’t seem to be designed to. Rather, it works better as a “pinnable” love letter to twitter, providing a colorful set of boxes-as-bullet points that sketch out the benefits of using twitter in education.

Disruptive Innovations in Higher Ed emerging orom Outside Mainstream

Disruptive Innovations in Higher Ed emerging orom Outside Mainstream | |

In my remarks, I clarified what disruptive innovation is, as the theory is all too often misunderstood and misapplied. I explained that disruptive innovations carry four rules worth noting. They typically start by serving non-consumers outside of the mainstream—areas where the alternative is literally nothing at all. They tend to be simpler than existing services, so the elite and the sector’s leading organizations tend to dismiss them. Accordingly, they both redefine the notion of what is quality and performance, and they don’t fit neatly into existing regulatory structures. Third, incumbent organizations cannot successfully adopt them within their core operations. And finally, they predictably and reliably improve over time to tackle more complex problems to transform a sector into one that is more affordable and accessible.

Change Curve: The Control Effect (Part 1)

Change Curve: The Control Effect (Part 1) | |
The Change Curve describes three manifestations of organisational change: ‘Resisted‘, where the organisation deploys antibodies to kill change conversations, ‘Constrained‘, where the organisation is aware of and wants to change, but is ultimately unable to relinquish control, and ‘Dynamic‘, where amplification and energy give momentum. Today i’m exploring an element of the Constrained organisation, the ‘Control Effect‘, and how we can overcome it.

[PDF] Universal Design in Online Education: Employing Organization Change

[PDF] Universal Design in Online Education: Employing Organization Change | |

With the rise in online education, universal design is an emerging trend aimed at providing available education opportunities to all students, accommodating for all disabilities. However, universal design in online education remains an ambiguous and lofty goal for an academic organization to undertake. This case analysis employs an organization change theoretical framework via archival document analysis to examine a failed universal design change initiative at a 1,500-student college. This analysis unpacks the complications inherent in the failed initiative via elucidation of the college’s actions comparatively with foundational tenets of organization change, particularly the diffusion of innovations model. Elicitations from this analysis include possibilities for future universal design change initiatives, as well as an overarching call for academic organizations to consider organization change tenets in organizational decision-making.

[Ponencia] La Universidad digital: Una revolución en marcha

El 11 de junio de 2015 se celebró la cuarta y última jornada del Seminario, que lleva por título “Taller de buenas prácticas: presentación de experiencias”. Con el objetivo de compartir casos de buenas prácticas relacionadas con los temas que han sido tratados en las jornadas anteriores del Seminario, se abrió una convocatoria pública, mediante la cual se seleccionaron las experiencias de éxito que se describirán durante la jornada.

La Cátedra UNESCO de Gestión y Política Universitaria ofrece, a través de su Seminario Bienal, un espacio de reflexión en torno al estado y al futuro de la educación superior en nuestro país.

Cada seminario se centra en un tema, que desarrolla a lo largo de cuatro jornadas, distribuidas en los cuatro semestres del bienio. Las tres primeras jornadas se dedican al análisis y al debate de la temática, desde perspectivas distintas, con expertos, académicos, estudiantes y gestores del sistema universitario. La cuarta jornada consiste en la presentación, mediante pósters y comunicaciones, de buenas prácticas llevadas a cabo en diferentes universidades, elegidas a través de una convocatoria pública.

El Seminario Bienal “La universidad digital” comenzó en noviembre de 2013 y finalizará en junio de 2015. En las tres jornadas celebradas hasta el momento se ha tratado de responder a preguntas tales como: ¿la universidad tradicional se transforma con el desarrollo de la tecnología?, ¿qué es la universidad digital?, ¿cómo se han aplicado las nuevas tecnologías en los métodos de enseñanza?, ¿qué oportunidades y amenazas enfrenta la educación superior con la universidad digital?, ¿cómo se gestionan las TI desde el gobierno de las universidades?, ¿qué tipo de gobernanza se requiere para hacer frente a los desafíos tecnológicos?, etcétera.

A great new tool to help you integrate technology in your Lesson Plans

A great new tool to help you integrate technology in your Lesson Plans | |

Lesson Flows is a new service provided by Common Sense Graphite to enable teachers to effectively integrate technology in their lesson plans. The premise behind Lesson Flows is to help teachers combine inspiring teaching practices with great digital tools. For each part of the lesson plan you will be able to curate and add web tools that can best meet its objectives.

To better understand how to align technology with the different parts of your lesson plan, here is an excellent example of a Lesson Flow created by digital learning specialist Rachelle W. In this lesson plan, Rachelle assigns a web tool for each of the five section of her lesson plan together with providing the rationale behind the use of each of these tools. This is indeed a great example of how a tech-rich lesson plan should be designed.

Change Curve: Co-Creating and Co-Owning change stories

Change Curve: Co-Creating and Co-Owning change stories | |
I’m writing a series of #WorkingOutLoud articles as i piece together the Change Curve framework for Dynamic organisational change in the Social Age. It’s a model whereby we identify where an organisation sits on the change curve, we consider the Resisters and Amplifiers of change, then work to move the organisation from ‘Resistant‘, through ‘Constrained‘ and into ‘Dynamic‘. One mechanism we are using to overcome ‘constraint‘ is storytelling, creating spaces outside the formal structure to build shared narratives. Today, i’m expanding on that.

"Huella" personal del aprendizaje

"Huella" personal del aprendizaje | |
Martin Weller nos habla de que PERSONAL/PERSONALIZACION es el mismo proceso de aprendizaje, el ve que de personalización en el aprendizaje a menudo hablamos en el plano del recurso, de tecnología, que bien podria ser de manera automatizada, por supuesto.

Personalización puede ocurrir dentro de un programa de estudio, escogiendo diferentes curso con diferentes ‘personalidades’. Dentro de un programa de grado, dicen, puede que tenga algunos cursos básicos, relativamente tradicionalmente estructurados, pero luego hay opciones que podemos eligir basados no en su contenido, pero si en su enfoque.

Por supuesto que tenemos un alto grado de modularidad y opcionalidad en titulaciones , pero normalmente es alrededor del contenido (quieres estudiar lingüística o la filosofía como su primera opción de año en Psicología).
Pero educación abierta, sí me refiero a MOOCs, pero también otras opciones, significa podemos estar inmersos en el mismo tema, pero con enfoques diferentes . Aquí la elección podría ser más “quieres estudiar el enfoque creativo, colaborativo para estadísticas …a tu ritmo?

A quick overview of four Instructional Design Models

A quick overview of four Instructional Design Models | |

If you’re new to eLearning, then understanding and following instructional design best practices from the beginning is crucial to your success. The eLearning niche is vast, and you will find numerous theories, models, and resources that have worked for different experts.

Leave them for later.

Begin with the basic, most widely used models that eLearning designers acknowledge and use to structure and plan their training:

  • ADDIE Model
  • Merrill’s Principles of Instruction
  • Gagne’s Nine Events of Instructions
  • Bloom’s Taxonomy

Note: This overview doesn't intend to evaluate the models. Each framework has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of which to use will depend on which model works best for you, your company, and your learners.
