Altimeter released a new report yesterday, called Digital Transformation: Why and How Companies are Investing in New Business Models to Lead Digital Customer Experiences.
For those of us in this field or related ones, much is not new, but confirmatory.
Benefits:Leadership and employees feel empowered through education.Decision-making and processes become more efficient across departments.We found that businesses often remodel or bolt on mobile, social, and digital functionality to an aging offline/online infrastructure that is counterintuitive to customer behavior.Team members want to feel empowered to do the work that’s necessary while feeling a sense of ownership in the process.In its own way, digital transformation is making businesses more human.
I spend a lot of time looking at different web-based tools and apps and thinking about if and how they can be used for learning. Sometimes it takes some thought and at other times it’s really obvious. With Phraseum it was instantly obvious that this was a really great tool for learning.
As I argued in an previous post here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, formative assessment is assessment for learning which is different from summative assessment that is assessment of learning. Formative assessment is used to check students' understanding and to plan subsequent instruction.The information gained from this kind of assessment is employed to guide the next steps in instruction and helps teachers and students consider additional learning opportunities needed to ensure success. Examples of formative assessment include:
Assigning projects and performancesGiving writing assignmentsGiving testsAsking questions.
n the past, teachers gave life to learning for generations of students — no different than today. But they were operating in an environment of scarcity that would make today’s teachers cringe (and they do, every time the Internet is down for more than just a short while). As the information available and our ability to access it increases, this new economy of information is transforming the practice of teaching and the roles of both teacher and student.

Most of us have at one time or another felt ourselves in the grip of the explanatory drive. You’re confronted by some puzzle, confusion or mystery. Your inability to come up with an answer gnaws at you. You’re up at night, turning the problem over in your mind. Then, suddenly: clarity. The pieces click into place. There’s a jolt of pure satisfaction.
We’re all familiar with this drive, but I wasn’t really conscious of the moral force of this longing until I read Michael Lewis’s book, “Flash Boys.”
As you’re probably aware, this book is about how a small number of Wall Street-types figured out that the stock markets were rigged by high-frequency traders who used complex technologies to give themselves a head start on everybody else. It’s nominally a book about finance, but it’s really a morality tale. The core question Lewis forces us to ask is: Why did some people do the right thing while most of their peers did not?
The answer, is that most people on Wall Street are primarily motivated to make money, but a few people are primarily motivated by an intense desire to figure stuff out.
En determinados ámbitos si no muestras una actitud proclive a la conversación y cierta disposición a las alianzas y no desarrollas determinadas destrezas y habilidades personales y tecnológicas… te estás quedando atrás. Digamos pues que los espacios de coworking son espacios “enredadores” por naturaleza, es decir fomentan la cuatro C claves en el trabajo de la sociedad red: convivencia, creatividad, comunicación y colaboración.
Ignasi Alcalde's insight:
El futuro del trabajador del conocimiento pasa por la filosofía coworking.
This report introduces connected learning, a promising educational approach that uses digital media to engage students’ interests and instill deeper learning skills, such as communication, collaboration, and critical thinking. The report lists four elements constituting connected learning’s emphasis on bridging school, popular culture, home, and the community to create an environment in which students engage in and take responsibility for their learning.
The quest to effectively share knowledge within a company is one that still appears elusive. How do you keep on top of your competitors’ developments? How do you monitor articles that mention your brand? How do you make sure your teams get the information they need to make decisions and to learn? Continue reading →
When we started OneNote we set out to revolutionize the way people capture, annotate, and recall all the ideas, thoughts, snippets and plans in their life. As many of you have attested, OneNote is the ultimate extension for your brain, but it’s not complete if it’s not instantly available everywhere. We’ve already made a lot of progress in that direction with our mobile, tablet and online web experiences. But there was still a gap. People frequently asked us for OneNote on Mac, and for more ways to capture content.
How will teaching and learning in the early 21st century differ from its 20th century predecessor? Some shifts are already well underway. These include the growing embrace of open educational resources and of courses collaboratively designed and developed by teams including content area specialists, educational technologists, and instructional designers. Peer mentoring and grading are becoming more common, as is a gradual shift toward learner-centered pedagogies and competency-based, outcomes-oriented approaches.
With support from partners around the United States as well as co-facilitators from various institutions and organizations, the MOOC was developed and implemented from a connectivist pedagogy. Participants were encouraged to act as both participants and leaders in a conversation about connected learning, personalization, collaboration, and reflection. The course was unique in the sense that its intended audience included K-12 students interested in teaching, preservice teachers, and inservice teachers. The goal of inviting such an audience was to facilitate a conversation that supported learning through collaborative professional development.
I couldn't agree more. As teachers, our role must change to one that enables, guides, personalises and embraces digital technology as a fundamental part of student learning. The most dangerous thing we can do to our students is to keep doing what our teachers and professors did to us:
Long Now Foundation’s effort to assemble 3,500 books most essential for sustaining or rebuilding humanity, as part of their collaboratively curated library for long-term thinking, the Manual for Civilization.
Here, futurist, environmentalist, and Long Now co-founder Stewart Brand — best-known for authoring the era-defining Whole Earth Catalog and originating the commonly (mis-)quoted aphorism that “information wants to be free” — offers his 76-book contribution to the cumulative library of 3,500 books.
