Workplace Performance: Learning in the Collaboration Age (Charles Jennings)

Workplace Performance: Learning in the Collaboration Age (Charles Jennings) | |

The Web has allowed us to totally redefine our traditional learning models. It has allowed us to reach beyond content-rich learning approaches and focus on experience-rich learning. It has allowed an evolution from ‘Know What’ learning to ‘Know Who’ and ‘Know How’ learning; and it has allowed the emergence from learning in the silos of our own organisations to learning with and through others across the world – easily and transparently.

eLearning Trends for 2016 – Players in the Realm

eLearning Trends for 2016 – Players in the Realm | |
Realm? You might think.

Isn’t it something more associated with games, comics and superhero movies? Well, theoretically yes. But, look at this from a different angle. Can’t we say that eLearning is a realm in itself? And if anything, eLearning has been around way longer and has been evolving rapidly. Newer technologies, devices, and budding concepts keep influencing and impacting the realm, urging it to look at newer methods of developing and delivering learning and development.

In the year 2015, the eLearning realm (as it shall be called here forth) witnessed very many changes. While the influence of multi-device trend led to considerable changes, mobile learning still stands mighty as an instrument of delivering just-in-time, just-in-case learning. Looking back at top trends for 2015, some technologies/trends still impact eLearning in the same magnitude, but some have lost their flare and have been pushed back into the abyss.

Here are some eLearning technologies/trends (in no particular order) that are jockeying to bring about radical changes during the year 2016.

Corporate E-learning vs. The E-learning in the Education Sectors

Corporate E-learning vs. The E-learning in the Education Sectors | |
The technological revolution has made concepts like virtual learning or e-learning sound very shadowed and easy. There were days when people just couldn’t imagine that the sharing of information and education will be so easy that the whole world of education and academia can be fitted with one search engine or the internet only. However, times have passed and we are at a stage where concepts like E-learning only seem to be a routine advantage with so many technological benefits and innovations around us.

Worries you the Knowledge Society

Worries you the Knowledge Society | |
En esta Nueva Sociedad , no todos se adaptarán por igual a estas transformaciones, que en la actualidad apenas alcanzan a un 10 % de la población mundial, pero que tienen un importante peso cualitativo.

Quienes no sean capaces de desarrollar una relación fuertemente abstractiva con su entorno, una plasticidad extrema en la adaptación a las circunstancias, un fuerte automatismo en la respuesta a una interactividad creciente, una nueva lógica de la simultaneidad en tiempos y espacios (frente a nuestra lógica lineal), una capacidad de metamorfosis, de mutación constante, y una capacidad dinámica de afrontar los riesgos como parte constitutiva de la vida… lo pasarán mal.

Sin embargo, durante algún tiempo, coexistirán formas del pasado con formas del presente y del futuro que se avecina. ¿Todo esto es bueno, es malo? Tal vez sea inevitable, lo que no quiere decir que debamos resignarnos a la presión de estas fuerzas en el desarrollo de lo humano, que a veces se nos antojan -desde esta ladera- como profundamente inhumanas.

The future of Learning Experiences is here today

The future of Learning Experiences is here today | |
At CES2016, Ginni Remmity, CEO for IBM, delivered her keynote focusing on one trend: Cognitive IoT. It's the overarching term she uses to cover analytics, cloud, mobility, security, wearables, and all the other individual trends in technology today. She refers to digital as the foundation for all of it. But when everything is digital, the new challenge is making meaning of all that digital data. The challenge of understanding data is what IBM does best.

"the most disruptive transformative trend is now in front of us. And it's cognitive. This ability to think to learn to understand. The systems the products the processes and everything you do. And it is the dawn of a new era. The cognitive era." - Ginni Remmity, CEO, IBM

12 onramps for Personalized and Competency-based Learning

12 onramps for Personalized and Competency-based Learning | |
Your school, program, or college has probably seen improvement in learner access to technology in the last few years (although it may still be an EdTech mess of devices and apps). But you may still be looking for ways to achieve real personalization in path and pace. It turns out that developing competency-based models where learners progress based on demonstrated mastery is a lot harder than adding devices.

As Julia Freeland Fisher recently noted, “Systems will likely get into trouble if they attempt to make just a few aspects of their models competency-based, while retaining an otherwise traditional structure.” Julia suggested four onramps–places to get started with personalized and competency-based learning and we’ve added a half a dozen more.

[Debate] Challenging the promise of Personalized Learning

In order to move away from the traditional “one-size-fits-all” factory model of education, some consider personalized learning as an alternative. Personalized learning can address the distinct learning aspirations, needs and cultural backgrounds of individual students. Should personalized learning be developed on a large scale? If so, what would the modalities be in terms of creativity, equity, privacy, quality and the retention of a core body of knowledge that should be common to all? How do we avoid going from “one-size-fits-all” to a “free-for-all”?

Watch this debate between Philip McRae, Jim Thompson, Mike Keppell hosted by Connie Yowell.

Why Instructional Designers need to view knowledge as a new natural resource

Why Instructional Designers need to view knowledge as a new natural resource | |
Let me explain. Our species has been propelled forwards by the exploitation of pre-existing natural resources since the time of our distant ancestors. A couple of million years ago an ancestor, Homo Habilis, turned a natural resource –a piece of obsidian that had been lying around for a few billion years unnoticed– into a razor-sharp tool. This sudden and evolutionary action, sparked by an idea, became the Tool Age. And we have never looked back. This ancient hominid then had to explain how his discovery worked and in doing so became the first Instructional Designer.

Since then it’s always been people who had ideas that revolutionized and evolutionized life for us by invention and instruction. Gradually at first and speeding up to the point now where revolutions and evolutions take place within a single life span. Those under thirty take this speedy unfolding of ideas for granted – they have never known anything else. My six year old grandson was recently taken aback when handed a phone at a friend’s house without a video screen!

La educación en 2030

La educación en 2030 | |
Para 2030, todos los educandos habrán adquirido los conocimientos, las competencias, los valores y las actitudes que se precisan para construir sociedades sustentables y pacíficas, mediante, entre otras, la educación para la ciudadanía mundial y la educación para el desarrollo sostenible: meta 5 de los Objetivos del Desarrollo Sustentable (2016-2030).

La UNESCO, en el marco de los Objetivos del Desarrollo Sustentable (2016-2030), plantea siete metas específicas para la educación. A tres de éstas les falta todavía el porcentaje que debe de alcanzarse para el año 2030. Idealmente sería el 100 por ciento, como se plantea en las otras cuatro metas. A reserva de conocer el porcentaje preciso transcribo aquí la siete metas:

The 2 views of workplace learning: L&D and Employee

The 2 views of workplace learning: L&D and Employee | |
L&D focus all their attention on creating and managing classroom training and/or e-learning. For them this is what workplace learning is all about – making sure people use the stuff they provide for them. The technologies they employ underpin this approach: e-learning authoring tools to create templated content, and a LMS to store all the usage data.

5 rules for choosing the best EdTech

5 rules for choosing the best EdTech | |
You didn’t get into teaching so that you could spend your days trying to work out which edtech option is the best app for this or the best online tool for that. These things are supposed to support you, not burden you, and it’s teaching you love, not technology.

Yet there’s always that nagging feeling that out there, somewhere, is the digital thingummy which is the answer to all your problems (nearly all…). And you spend hours staring at apps you don’t fully understand, installing and uninstalling tools you never really need.

There is no perfect answer, of course, so instead, look for the EdTech that will help you do your job better, that will solve the problems you have. These are not lifestyle choices you’re making, you’re just looking to get the job done. So, look to these five rules:

The EdTech alphabet for 21st century teachers

The EdTech alphabet for 21st century teachers | |

Along with the vast amount of technology that has entered our classrooms in recent years comes a whole new vocabulary. The EdTech alphabet that we’ve put together below started as a smaller collection of different topics we’ve written about over the past few years, and while it is by no means exhaustive, it covers a lot of ground in terms of different tools, methods, ideas, and resources.

If you’re struggling to integrate technology, if your school is low on funding, or if you’ve always used technology in your classroom, or consider yourself a seasoned pro, you may find some new ideas in the graphic below. We’ve linked to some relevant posts from the last couple of years in the text alphabet below.

We’re working on making a more robust alphabet graphic in the future, with multiple entries for each letter. Is there anything you want us to include (that hasn’t already been mentioned below)? Let us know by leaving a comment below, dropping us a line on Twitter, or heading over to the Daily Genius Facebook Page and leaving us a note there! We always love to hear about your favorite tools and more.

Why the Future of Work is Collaborative

Why the Future of Work is Collaborative | |
If you look at what’s changing in the organizational landscape, the overarching challenge is agility, the ability to adapt faster. What’s emerging as a consensus for success is that this comes from people working together in particular ways. So it’s worthwhile exploring what those ways are, and what can be done to facilitate these outcomes.

And this is inherently social. There are many contributions that come from working smarter on your own. We can make sure we’re good at researching, evaluating, reflecting, and more. However, then we should also make sure we have optimized the contributions coming from us working together.

The key schema to this is ‘learning’, in a particular way. When we trouble-shoot, problem-solve, design, research, and more, when we innovate, we don’t know the answer when we start. So, in a meaningful way, these too are learning opportunities. However, the difference here is that there isn’t someone with the answer who can coach us, so we need to work in the best ways possible. And lots of information is known about working productively in these instances.

En este estudio se pretende abrir camino hacia el conocimiento de las nuevas disciplinas profesionales en el ámbito digital y que ocupan posiciones clave en las empresas del siglo XXI y que por su importancia son necesarias

Las empresas tienen que atraer este nuevo talentoo bien formar internamente a sus profesionales en las nuevas competencias con el objetivo de aprovechar las grandes oportunidades que ofrece la economía digital. Es por ello que el principal objetivo de este documento es ayudar a las empresas a definir los diferentes puestos profesionales digitales.

Este vademécum ofrece el perfil de 35 de las profesiones digitales más demandadas hoy día por las empresas, analizando el objetivo principal o misión de cada uno de los puestos, sus funciones o tareas principales y las competencias que son necesarias para que las organizaciones puedan adaptarse a los constantes cambios que afectan a los diferentes ámbitos del mundo digital.

Es importante señalar que para todas las posiciones o puestos de trabajo especificados es recomendable un buen nivel de inglés, capacidades comunicativas, trabajo colaborativo, facilidad para afrontar nuevos retos, formación especializada o experiencia equivalente y formación continua.
Respecto al vademécum del 2014 se han incorporado 10 nuevas posiciones y dos nuevos ámbitos digitales debido a la rápida evolución del mundo digital y la idiosincrasia de cada empresa y de los profesionales que las conforman.

Es por ello, que este vademécum, como su nombre indica, evoluciona en función de estos aspectos y de la capacidad de adaptación de las empresas a un entorno digital en constante cambio siendo actualmente nueve los ámbitos digitales analizados. Un claro ejemplo de ellos son las profesiones digitales relacionadas con marketing digital, el Big Data o el Internet de las cosas. Según un artículo recientemente publicado en la revista Forbes actualmente en España hay ciertos indicios sobre el incremento de la demanda de profesionales de Analítica Digital y Big Data en las diferentes industrias. Esta demanda se refleja con claridad en EEUU donde cinco sectores industriales aglutinan el mayor número de ofertas de trabajo que requieren conocimientos de Analítica y Big Data.
