Education World: Using Twitter for Professional Development

Education World: Using Twitter for Professional Development | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it
A growing number of educators are using the microblogging platform Twitter as an easy, low-cost alternative to traditional trainings and conferences.

Via Gust MEES, David Hain
Tom Hood's insight:

Imagine getting all of the key notes of the thought leaders in the conference pushed to you in real time. That is why we love Twitter with our conferences.

 

We have found twitter to be a great learning augmentation and support tool for conferences and key leanring events. We use a hashtag and then produce a tweetbook post conference and share with attendees. These community notelbooks are great to recap conferences in blog posts, share learning with people unable to attend, and extend the insights from the conferences.

I do think that the dichomy is a false one anyway, but there's no doubt that collaboration,well pursued, is a massive option for the future of social change.  Probelme is that the cost of bad/misguided collaboration is very high...

21 Tips to Become the Most Productive Person You Know

21 Tips to Become the Most Productive Person You Know | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it
Here are 21 tips to get you to your best productivity.

 

I wanted to help you create explosive productivity so you get big things done (and make your life matter).


Here are 21 tips to get you to your best productivity.


#1. Check email in the afternoon so you protect the peak energy hours of your mornings for your best work.


#2. Stop waiting for perfect conditions to launch a great project. Immediate action fuels a positive feedback loop that drives even more action.


#3. Remember that big, brave goals release energy. So set them clearly and then revisit them every morning for 5 minutes.


#4. Mess creates stress (I learned this from tennis icon Andre Agassi who said he wouldn’t let anyone touch his tennis bag because if it got disorganized, he’d get distracted). So clean out the clutter in your office to get more done.

"A client of mine is closing in on his 61st birthday – He’s a baby boomer. He’s also embarking on an amazing career journey, leaving a sort-of safe corporate job to jump back into the start-up pool. Risky?

 

You bet. But informing his decision is the knowledge that he is a constant learner. His participation in several online communities, including Khan Academy and P2PU, the online peer-to-peer university, is helping him sharpen technical skills he hasn’t used recently.

 

This work is undertaken on his own time and driven by his curiosity and the pragmatic recognition that he must do more than keep up to compete with younger generations with recent degrees."

We just spoke about this in our Leadership Academy - Failure is a powerful learning tool if you use it correctly - Leadership lessons in how to fail well | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it
Leaders need to think about failure as a process we go through rather than an event to avoid at all costs.

 

I crashed my car recently. It was about 8 a.m. I was in a rush (what else is new?) to get to a meeting for a nonprofit I belong to. I learned how to drive in Thailand, so I’m rather proud of my driving reflexes — even pride myself on holding my own with the cab drivers in New York City. The car in front of me stopped. Unfortunately I didn’t.


The good news is that I emerged totally functional (or at least no more dysfunctional than usual). The other piece of good news is that the experience taught me some lessons on how to fail well. It taught me that we need to think about failure as a process we go through rather than an event to avoid at all costs.

The Brainstorming Guide for the Developing World: CAT The Frog Open-Source Guide To Design Thinking

The Brainstorming Guide for the Developing World: CAT The Frog Open-Source Guide To Design Thinking | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

 

Robin Good: The Collective Action Toolkit is a downloadable PDF guide, that has been designed to help individuals living in third world communities, where it is much more difficult to form spontaneous groups that tackle specific problems, to learn techniques and methods that can aid them to get together and take action on specific issues.

 

"Want to figure out a way to help people in your community eat healthier? Have an idea for a small business?"

 

"This 72-page booklet that seeks to develop a universal framework for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds to tackle big problems in their communities.

 

Developed over the past year, the CAT contains nary a mention of design (or brainstorming). Instead, it relies on a simple vocabulary to describe skills like building a team, carrying out research, and developing solutions."

Source: http://www.fastcodesign.com/1671237/frog-creates-an-open-source-guide-to-design-thinking#1

 

The CAT manual provides a number of illustrated templates, examples and tips to get any collaborative action idea off the ground.

Social Media Changing Us, Society & the Power of the Human Connection

Social Media Changing Us, Society & the Power of the Human Connection | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

This wonderful piece was written by Milas Page - it is inspiring, it is true and it's what's is happening to many people as a result of interacting in social media.

 

The author talks about the "social mindset" connecting as human beings is what gets you in the door......

 

Here are some highlights:

 

**The Social Mindset sees the value in collaboration

 

**The Social Mindset cares about others – be it your customers, your employees, or your partners

 

**The Social Mindset lays the groundwork for the importance of listening

 

**The Social Mindset leads you to realize you can help – therefore makes you open to helping when an opportunity arises

 

**The Social Mindset surrounds you with positive thinking and empowers you to realize you can make a change

 

What's the point, she asks? I'm quoting Milas because I couldn't have said it better..........

 

An interaction like the she refers to in this piece is between her and another person whom in the past she would have closed the door  but social media has made her see people in a different light.

 

"Tirelessly one door at a time, trying to activate communities. Now an interaction like that can not only reach me, it can reach you.

 

Messages amplified, reach expanding.Making the human connection is what get’s you in the door."

 

** "Then think about the implications this has in our world, I believe it has many and it’s a good thing. Companies and people who embrace social as a mindset will change this world, one person – one cause, one workplace at a time"

 

How has it changed you?

Networked Student

"The Networked Student was inspired by CCK08, a Connectivism course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes during fall 2008. It depicts an actual project completed by Wendy Drexler's high school students. The Networked Student concept map was inspired by Alec Couros' Networked Teacher. I hope that teachers will use it to help their colleagues, parents, and students understand networked learning in the 21st century.

Anyone is free to use this video for educational purposes. You may download, translate, or use as part of another presentation. Please share."

 

This is a great illustration of applied problem based learning using the network!

Communicate, Communicate, Communicate | Management Innovation eXchange | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it
A large company’s president is making a summary closing for his top executives. He has several items to focus on during the year. He gets to one goal; communicate, communicate, communicate. When he starts discussing the goal, his executive vice president of customer service injects. The vice president states; “We have a problem. Most of our employees report to first line managers (eighty percent). According to our last surveys these employees trust their first line managers more than us. These managers do not know what we know. We have to communicate to the front line managers more effectively.” This vice president is upset about this.

What does he mean by his comment? Why does he want the employees to trust top management more? This company is one of the best in the industry. It is accomplishing most every corporate financial, political, and customer service goal. Is it just an ego thing? This is great, the employees trust their first line managers. These first line managers are a valuable resource. Top management can draw on this trust to carry out their strategy. If that is what he meant, what then?

Does he mean that the top managers need to get out of their offices more? Have his managers lost touch with the first line employee? It is not how many times each day executives go up the elevator that counts; it is how many times they come down. McKinsey and Company has an article on their website entitled,” How leaders kill meaning at work.” This article gives a summary of a study on top executives. It states, “In short, our survey showed that most executives don’t understand the power of progress in meaningful work. And the traps revealed by the diaries suggest that most executives don’t act as though progress matters.”
