7 Brain-based Tips for eLearning Success

7 Brain-based Tips for eLearning Success | Innovations in Leadership Development | Scoop.it

The brain is constantly on the lookout for ways to improve by obtaining new knowledge and skills, even before birth. Unfortunately, retaining information can be challenging, simply because instructors and course designers do not always use methods that facilitate remembering. The following seven points look at key principles from neuroscience research paired with tips that will allow course creators to achieve effective eLearning development.

Optimal network clustering for information diffusion

We investigate the impact of community structure on information spreading with the linear threshold model. Contrary to the common belief that communities hinder information diffusion, we show that strong communities can facilitate global cascades by enhancing local, intra-community spreading. Using both analytical approaches and numerical simulations, we demonstrate the existence of optimal clustering, where global cascades require the minimal number of early adopters.

Signals and Boundaries: Building Blocks for Complex Adaptive Systems (by John H. Holland)

Signals and Boundaries: Building Blocks for Complex Adaptive Systems

List Price: $20.00
Price: $18.00
You Save: $2.00 (10%)

Complex adaptive systems (cas), including ecosystems, governments, biological cells, and markets, are characterized by intricate hierarchical arrangements of boundaries and signals. In ecosystems, for example, niches act as semi-permeable boundaries, and smells and visual patterns serve as signals; governments have departmental hierarchies with memoranda acting as signals; and so it is with other cas. Despite a wealth of data and descriptions concerning different cas, there remain many unanswered questions about "steering" these systems. In Signals and Boundaries, John Holland argues that understanding the origin of the intricate signal/border hierarchies of these systems is the key to answering such questions. He develops an overarching framework for comparing and steering cas through the mechanisms that generate their signal/boundary hierarchies.

Holland lays out a path for developing the framework that emphasizes agents, niches, theory, and mathematical models. He discusses, among other topics, theory construction; signal-processing agents; networks as representations of signal/boundary interaction; adaptation; recombination and reproduction; the use of tagged urn models (adapted from elementary probability theory) to represent boundary hierarchies; finitely generated systems as a way to tie the models examined into a single framework; the framework itself, illustrated by a simple finitely generated version of the development of a multi-celled organism; and Markov processes.

How to measure innovation

Ken Cooper's curator insight, April 21, 2014 11:48 AM

Shaughnessy notes that reputation is often the chief measurement of innovative companies. Outputs, like the number of new products or patents, are also easy to measure. He looks to inputs as a key indicator of innovation capability. That is, where the raw material for innovation efforts comes from, and how it is processed into the final product.

 

I like Shaughnessy's emphasis on inputs, because the practice of innovation depends on inputs as the primary sources of innovation opportunity.

Johan Burger's curator insight, September 7, 2014 12:50 AM

Measuring is crucial. If you do not measure, you cannot manage.

A community is made up of a diversity of people complementing and supporting each other in their growth. Growth means to see and shape our own beings and to take on responsibility which goes beyond our self. This ability to see and know ourself within the human context of Planet Earth grows when we live in community. The social competence and affinity which develop from this are probably the most important abilities which we need in today's world.

The reality is that we—all of us, not just the financial elite—are the collective sleepwalkers. How do we wake up? Why is it that, across so many major systems, we collectively create results that nobody wants? Nobody wants to increase environmental destruction, poverty, cultural ADHD, or suicide. Yet we keep doing it. Why do we collectively recreate these patterns?

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

Deloitte’s third annual Millennial Survey of nearly 7,800 Millennials from 28 countries across Western Europe, North America, Latin America, BRICS, and Asia-Pacific about business, government, and innovation.

Key findings:
• While most Millennials believe business is having a positive impact on society and increasing prosperity, they think business can do much more to address society’s challenges in the areas of most concern: resource scarcity, climate change, and income inequality;
• 50 percent of Millennials surveyed want to work for a business with ethical practices;
• Millennials say government has the greatest potential to address society’s biggest issues but are overwhelmingly failing to do so;
• Millennials believe the biggest barrier to innovation is management’s attitude;
• Millennials believe the success of a business should be measured in terms of more than just its financial performance, with a focus on improving society among the most important things it should seek to achieve;
• Millennials are also charitable and keen to participate in “public life”: donate to charities, actively volunteer, and be a member of a community organization.

E-learning: Beyond the Hype - Leap of Reason

E-learning: Beyond the Hype - Leap of Reason | Innovations in Leadership Development | Scoop.it
The Leap of Reason team had conversations with more than 100 thinkers, practitioners, and entrepreneurs to produce a new report that explores the state of e-learning and its potential as an agent for change—far beyond the confines of formal education. By taking into account a historical perspective on technology adoption and experiences from across academia, government, and the private sector, the report gets beyond the hype. "Merely putting content online is not enough to improve how we teach and learn," Mario Morino and his colleague Katie Paris argue. Their report makes the case that e-learning, done right, however, offers the potential to fundamentally change how we transfer knowledge in all aspects of life.
