Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, May 2, 2014 9:00 AM

I had the good fortune of interviewing Eddie Obeng a few times. Eddie has a brilliant mind.


In this Zeitgeist talk he explores how modern workers are time travelers. When it comes to technology we operate in the 21st century privately and then return to the 20th century when we show up for work. This is an important and energetic talk by Eddie Obeng that I encourage you to watch.

11 Mistakes Successful People Never Make

11 Mistakes Successful People Never Make | Good Advice | Scoop.it

If you're not happy with your life, either personally or professionally, take a quick look in the mirror. The problem may not be lack of opportunity, or education, or capital, or connections--the culprit could be you.

The difficulty could lie in what you believe--and what you do.

What do successful people believe and do differently?

Karen Bowden's insight:

"Real, lasting satisfaction comes from doing, not from having. Want to feel good about yourself? Help someone. Knowing you've made a difference in another person's life is an "aah..." that lasts forever."

India's IT Party is over. Reinvent yourself or suffer

India's IT Party is over. Reinvent yourself or suffer | Good Advice | Scoop.it
India’s  IT industry is unlikely to remain the amazing job-engine that it has been. For the past two decades, the fastest way to increase your income has been to land a job with an IT company. The industry has provided a ticket to prosperity for millions of young Indians; children of security guards, drivers, peons and cooks catapulted themselves and their families firmly into the middle class in a single generation by landing a job in a BPO. Hundreds of engineering colleges mushroomed overnight churning out over a million graduates a year to feel the insatiable demand of India&rsq
Karen Bowden's insight:

This pertains to everyone: "...the ability to learn new things, develop new competencies and periodically reinvent ourselves is a crucial one. Sadly too many of us have no curiosity and no interest in reading nor learning. The future will not be kind to such people."

This means that although the puzzles have solutions, they are reasonably open in that it isn’t a dull “here is some logic, type in the truth table” (hint: a truth table is Boolean logic, not a Sontaran interrogation device).

Learning What We Didn’t Know

Learning What We Didn’t Know | Good Advice | Scoop.it

Before the internet we learned from institutions, friends, family and co-workers.  Learning was a process largely influenced from local resources; schools, work, communities and civic activities.  We also learned from media fed to us and media we sought in books, videos and sound.  Our resources were limited by reach, access and choices.

 

Today the resources for learning are unlimited and for the most part free. Our reach to information is unlimited and access is 24/7  which expands the venue of choices.  As a result we are all learning what we didn’t know but want to know and we are being taught by others that do know.

Learning has left the building and people are self organizing to learn what they didn’t know and gaining the information to know from each other and from global digital resources at the click of a mouse.

What Motivates You? (Probably not grades.)

What Motivates You? (Probably not grades.) | Good Advice | Scoop.it

"Often, students see school as a series of "hoops" or "tasks" that they must complete in succession. They don't see value in the tasks (because they're often not authentic) and they often don't receive relevant or timely feedback on their work. I mean, who really cares if you get an "80" or an "85." What does that even mean anyway?"

Karen Bowden's insight:

How do we get students to commit to their own learning?  A teacher explains what motivates her to write.
