[Slideshare] Redarquía: Más allá de la jerarquía

El libro es una reflexión capital sobre los cambios que los nuevos tiempos están trayendo a las organizaciones de todo tipo, desde el ámbito empresarial hasta el político. La tesis central del libro, es que no es posible ya abordar la complejidad y la incertidumbre de nuestra época utilizando las estructuras jerárquicas heredadas del pasado.

Cuanto más nos aferramos a las jerarquías de poder tradicionales, más nos alejamos de las enormes posibilidades que nos brinda la Sociedad Red para crear valor económico y social de forma sostenible. Cada día es mas evidente que necesitamos nuevos modelos organizativos para la coordinación de los esfuerzos colectivos en la nueva Era de la Colaboración.

Online and MOOC content can strengthen, but bot replace, Traditional Education

Online and MOOC content can strengthen, but bot replace, Traditional Education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Medical schools, from those at private universities like Stanford and Harvard to state universities in Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania, market MOOCs through sites like Coursera, Udacity, edX and MEDU. All schools tend to view MOOCs as a way to foster cultural and medical knowledge exchange, minimize global health disparities, fuel and diversify the clinician pipeline and control burgeoning medical education costs.

Medical schools rely on MOOCs to enhance brand awareness and leverage institutional expertise in areas like genomics, neurosciences or infectious diseases. However, they also use MOOCs to innovate on multiple educational fronts—from content delivery, learning analytics and automated assessment, to course peer review, team-based collaboration and integration with on-site, face-to-face learning.

El desarrollo de las TIC, la ampliación de la capacidad de conexión y el diseño de diversas herramientas, entornos y aplicaciones web, hacen posible hoy día que la educación en línea se posicione cada vez más entre el público consumidor de educación.


El ideal de la educación continua que Jacques Delors planteaba a finales del siglo XX, hoy se ve potencializado de manera radical por los desarrollos y capacidad de penetración de los servicios web.  Sin embargo, son muchos y de diversa índole los obstáculos que se presentan en el desarrollo y práctica de la educación en línea.

Differentiated Instruction in eLearning: What eLearning professionals should know

Differentiated Instruction in eLearning: What eLearning professionals should know | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Differentiated instruction in eLearning meets the individual needs of learners by custom tailoring not only the eLearning content, but also how the information is conveyed and how learners demonstrate their understanding of the subject matter. This allows us to perceive differentiated instruction in eLearning in terms of content, process, and final product, respectively.

Every online learner has their own interests, strengths, learning needs, and knowledge base. Differentiated instruction in eLearning gives eLearning professionals the opportunity to create eLearning courses that honor these differences, instead of trying to make the learner fit into a “typical learner” mold. In this article, I’ll be highlighting the best practices of applying differentiated instruction in eLearning, sharing 5 tips that will help you use this highly effective approach in your next eLearning course.

Smart ways to become an eLearning productivity ninja

Smart ways to become an eLearning productivity ninja | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
As eLearning designers, we have to wear many hats and juggle multiple tasks. We write storyboards, interact with clients and SMEs, coordinate with team members from multiple functions, keep an eye on how the course is shaping up, and ensure the project sticks to the schedule. Oh yes, most of us work on more than one project at a time. Of course, we are expected to be on top of our games and be productive always. It is easier said than done. But, there's nothing that you cannot achieve with sincerity, patience, and a wee bit of effort.

You just have to make small changes at work and shift certain thought patterns to become more productive. Below are some ways of becoming more productive. Not all may work for you, but it never hurts to try.

Teoría de las Inteligencias Múltiples

La teoría de las inteligencias múltiples es un modelo propuesto por Howard Gardner en el que la inteligencia no es vista como algo unitario que agrupa diferentes capacidades específicas con distinto nivel de generalidad, sino como un conjunto de inteligencias múltiples, distintas e independientes. Gardner define la inteligencia como la "capacidad de resolver problemas o elaborar productos que sean valiosos en una o más culturas".

Smart Cities need Smart Citizens

Smart Cities need Smart Citizens | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
We are connecting our cities to the cloud via the internet of everything, so that objects share data with each other. With these data, governments, organizations, and companies can sense patterns and make decisions – from traffic control to geographically specific advertising. But this is merely the tip of the iceberg of the real potential of smart cities and digital networks. A major challenge for society will be to enable an intelligent and aggressively engaged citizenry to build upon the potential of these growing digital interconnections.

4 ways Online Training increases Productivity

4 ways Online Training increases Productivity | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
According to the American Management Association, programs that focus on future career development or improved work skills are effective in retaining employees and in heightening their creativity. They also increase their productivity.

In fact, the National Center on the Education Quality of the Workforce found in a study of 3.100 United States workplaces that a 10 percent hike in workforce education level resulted in an 8.6 percent gain in total productivity.

The Association for Talent Development (ASTD) surveyed firms to discover that companies with the highest productivity levels invested almost twice as much in training each employee as companies with more mediocre performance levels.

Traditional forms of employee training were expensive and difficult to deliver if a company had extensive properties located far from each other. The advent of online courses has changed the ease and availability of training employees and brought it within the limits of most budgets.

A strong argument can be made to suggest that companies embrace online learning as an effective means of heightening their productivity.

Learning Experience Design: A better title than Instructional Design?

Learning Experience Design: A better title than Instructional Design? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

How many times have you told people, “I’m an instructional designer,” only to be met with a blank stare? How many people are thoroughly confused about what we do for a living?


Last month, Connie Malamed proposed a new name for the field of instructional design: Learning Experience Design or LX Design. This moves the focus away from “instruction” and more to learning. Instead of focusing on the instruction or the materials, our starting point is thinking about the learners and how they will experience what we design. Connie argues this may help us focus more on learning science as well as being deliberate about designing valuable experiences.


Calling ourselves Learning Experience Designers acknowledges that we design, enable or facilitate experiences rather than courses. This gives us a broad license to empower people with the tools and information they need to do their jobs, regardless of the chosen format.

The Learning Innovation Cycle: How dIsRuPtIoN creates lasting change

The Learning Innovation Cycle: How dIsRuPtIoN creates lasting change | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Disruption is an interesting topic for the same reason that cowboys, gangsters, and villains are interesting. It’s unpredictable. Problematic. Against the grain.

It’s kind of aging as a buzzword in the “education space,” but it’s other-worldly powerful, and there are few things education needs more. How exactly it produces change is less clear, but I thought I’d create a model to think about. First, a quick preface. The iconic vision of disruptive innovation comes from Clayton Christensen, who uses the term to “describe a process by which a product or service takes root initially in simple applications at the bottom of a market and then relentlessly moves up market, eventually displacing established competitors.”

MOOCs are taking Higher Education to brand new heights | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Making high-quality programming available to those with the least capacity to enroll in a traditional higher education institution was one of the goals of the open courseware movement, but MOOCs have taken this to a whole new level. Beyond simply providing this programming for globally distributed students in need of learning opportunities, these courses have provided a platform for institutions to truly reflect on the effectiveness of their teaching methods and to learn about the tendencies of today’s students. In this interview, Anant Agarwal, Rob Lue and Richard Menschel reflect on the benefits and challenges of creating MOOCs, and share their thoughts on where the MOOC movement is going.

How to create an effective eLearning experience?

How to create an effective eLearning experience? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
As we know, Instructional Design is the systematic development of specifications using both learning and instructional theory to ensure the quality of training. In professional training the aim of Instructional Design is to improve employee performance, as well as to increase organizational efficiency and effectiveness. Many Instructional Designers focus on the business objective of the organization while developing any eLearning curriculum, as business objectives can be achieved via the performance objective of the learners. So while focusing on eLearning effectiveness we should also focus on the eLearning course’s performance objective.

Choosing the right method is always important. However, equally important is creating eLearning with effective results, and this is still a challenge. eLearning is part of a conscious choice to choose the best and most appropriate ways to promote effective learning. Both facilitated and self-paced eLearning activities and content should conform to a set of quality standards to ensure the effectiveness of an eLearning program.

Top 25 tech tools for teachers for 2015

Top 25 tech tools for teachers for 2015 | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

When I started teaching in 2004, I used any/all available technology. I had an overhead projector and a CD player. Then I scored an InFocus machine and a laptop because no one else in the social studies department had use for it.  Afterwards, I graduated to a SmartBoard and “hoarder of laptop carts.” Even when I was a floater, without my own room for several years,  I would wheel my own teaching cart and two laptop carts to all three of my classes.  Without missing a beat. The only real issue was how loud I was coming down the hallway. The laptop carts squeaked and the wheels always sounded like shopping carts in need of repair.


New teachers have wonderful tech tools to choose from these days. I am positively jealous that many of the tools below did not exist even three years ago when I left the classroom. As the E Learning Coordinator of my division, I get to review and train others on the latest tech tools, which I have to admit, is pretty fun!


All of the tech tools featured in this post are free, user friendly, and (likely)will be available on your school’s network. These tools are best for students in grades 6-12 but the teacher creation tools can be used for any grade/subject level.

Integrating technology with ADDIE

Integrating technology with ADDIE | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
So, what is technology integration really? I think of it as the use of technology to enhance learning or to help solve learning problems. The process of technology integration is metacognitive in nature–it requires an intense amount of self-awareness and self-reflection about your own teaching and learning.

ADDIE is a good place to start with planning for technology integration because it is simple and fairly easy to remember. Here is how technology integration fits into the framework of ADDIE:

U.S. Millennials know technology, but not how to solve problems with it, study says

U.S. Millennials know technology, but not how to solve problems with it, study says | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

What they are not so capable of doing is solving high-level problems with technology, she said. In fact, 58 percent of millennials struggle to use digital tools and networks to solve relatively simple problems that involve skills like sorting, searching for, and emailing information from a spreadsheet, the study found.


Beyond that, 19 percent of the U.S. population sampled cannot categorize using technology, she said. That capability involves a task as simple as creating folders to handle the daily deluge of email.

Translated into earning capability, a person with the highest ability to problem-solve with technology is likely to earn more than double what a person at the lowest level earns, according to the organization's analysis.



Edumorfosis's insight:

Es lógico que suceda esto cuando los mileniales nunca han practicado el Pensamiento Computacional, Ciudadanía Digital, Conciencia Global, Inteligencia Social, TIC, TAC , TEP y Pensamientos de Orden Superior (pensamiento crítico y reflexivo). El estudio no trae nada nuevo, sino que confirma lo que hemos estado planteando hace un tiempo: Educación Basada en Contenidos versus Educación Basada en Competencias Blandas.

Google offers a free online Computational Thinking course for Educators | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
As a method of thinking, computational thinking is not restricted solely to computer applications but applies to any other discipline or content area that requires thinking and problem solving. In this sense, computational thinking is ‘a problem solving process that includes a number of characteristics and dispositions. Students who learn CT across the curriculum can begin to see a relationship between academic subjects, as well as between life inside and outside of the classroom.’

In this regard, Google in collaboration with representatives from leading educational and scientific platforms have put together this free online course entitled 'Computational Thinking for Educators' introducing teachers to the importance of computational thinking. The course is particularly intended for educators working with students between the ages of 13 and 18 who are interested in enhancing their teaching with creative thinking and problem solving.’

4 ways to set up an Enterprise eLearning Program with multiple objectives

4 ways to set up an Enterprise eLearning Program with multiple objectives | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
The pedagogy that is deployed in an eLearning program depends to a great extent on the targeted audience. For instance, kids often have very short attention spans. Consequently, the eLearning programs targeted at them are designed to be fun and interactive – something that will keep kids engaged. For older age groups however, the type of eLearning program depends on the end-objective. For one-way discourses, mobile apps and video tutorials are most effective. On the other hand, courses that need interaction among attendees are effected through video conferencing and chat applications.
