Pedagogia on kuollut, eläköön heutagogia! | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

Heutagogiassa oppija on kaikki. Hän oppii oppimaan kaikkialla elämässään, aidosti itseohjautuvasti. Oppimisen prosessi on epälineaarinen eikä etene pisteestä a pisteeseen b. Myös oppimistavoitteeseen suhtaudutaan kriittisesti ja se voidaan jopa hylätä toimimattomana.

Being Popular vs. Being Good

Being Popular vs. Being Good | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it
"Plenty of what's popular isn't good, and plenty of what's good isn't popular" One of the grand confusions of modern life is the confusion between what is good and what is popular.
Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

"The temptation many creative people I know have is to strive for popularity. To make, do, and say things that other people like in the hopes of pleasing them. This motivation is nice. And sometimes the end result is good. But often what happens in trying so hard to please other people, especially many other people, the result is mediocre."

Facebook's Paper vs. Flipboard: Comparing Mobile News Curation Apps

Facebook's Paper vs. Flipboard: Comparing Mobile News Curation Apps | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article by Mashable:
"How each story is told is as important as the story itself," begins the promo video for Facebook's new much-hyped Paper app.
The app mixes curated news feeds with your Facebook timeline to create a platform that integrates news discovery and sharing into your timeline.

With its tiled layout and gesture-based user interface, it feels very similar to Flipboard's suite of apps. We put both apps side by side to see how the two stack up. Here's how they compare:

Design: Tiles And Gestures

Both use a tiled layout that displays news in a grid. But while Flipboard's design puts content first, Paper puts Facebook first, emphasizing interacting with your Facebook friends and timeline whenever possible.
Both apps rely heavily on gestures for navigation.

News: Curation vs. Aggregation

When it comes to finding and reading news, the two apps take very different approaches. Simply put, Flipboard is an aggregator while Paper is a curator.
Flipboard, with its customized RSS, topic-based feeds and themed magazines, places importance on personalization first, discovery second.
Paper puts discovery first, telling users what stories they should pay attention to, while emphasizing interacting with friends on Facebook.
Users can subscribe to the app's topic-based news sections, create customized "magazines" based around their interests, or use the app like an RSS feed to subscribe to specific sources.

Getting Social

Sharing and social media integration is at the heart of any news discovery app. Unsurprisingly, social media integration with Flipboard is much more subtle, while Paper puts Facebook front and center.
Facebook may be venturing into the news curation business with Paper, and it may be one of the first of many standalone apps from the social media giant, but the company is still very much emphasizing Facebook as the vehicle for news curation and discovery.

Wrapping It Up

Flipboard is great for collecting all the news you want to read from the sources you like. And if you rely on Flipboard as an aggregator, Paper won't be a replacement. Paper is more of a Facebook app than a "news" app, and it's best suited for those looking to share and discover content with friends.

Flipboard is available for web, iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, BlackBerry, Kindle Fire and Nook. Paper is currently iPhone only..."

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 29, 2014 1:20 PM

Being able to peer into the future and generate corporate strategies is a tough feat. Same with generating a company's Future Story (what the future will look like through the actions you are taking today).


While I don't necessarily agree that transmedia storytelling is the answer, what I really do like about this SlideShare piece is its unique take on how science fiction and speculative science can help solve these challenges.


I bet you get a few creative ideas from this piece! Enjoy!

Hugo Callens's curator insight, April 25, 2014 3:56 AM

Content curation is het systematisch verzamelen, selecteren en commentariëren van allerlei content die je op het web vindt met betrekking tot een topic die voor jou,  je organisatie en je publiek relevant is.

Het is o.a. een manier om je positie als "expert" op een bepaald gebied te versterken, om zelf op de hoogte te blijven van de ontwikkelingen in je vakgebied en om tegelijk  je publiek "op te voeden".

In deze presentatie vind je 10 praktische tips om dat proces vorm te geven.
