Se trata de mostrar los datos de manera que permitan comprender la relación que existe entre la evolución de las variables en el tiempo, las tendencias ... y para ello es importante refinar la construcción visual y escoger el tipo adecuado para cada caso, y aquí es donde la forma de gráfico elegido debe ir en función de la necesiadad de conocimiento a transmitir con los datos. Básicamente, una representación visual de datos debería dar a conocer los datos, provocar la reflexión y permitir la comparación de datos, y no distorsionar la impresión sobre los resultados.La magia de visualización de datos , radica en la captura y síntesis previa de la información para mediante el uso de diversas técnicas visuales como diagramas, gráficas, esquemas, conexiones, grafos… para posteriormente transformarla y con ello para facilitar la compresión de la misma. Tener éxito en la visualización de datos que no es otra cosa que dominar el diseño de la comprensión.

Algunas de las claves para entender el poder de los datos.
Technology buzzwords, although annoying, often seem innocuous enough. They’re just catchy and trite enough to bleed into common usage, but just misleading and obfuscatory enough as to discourage deep analysis. Two of the most widespread buzzwords and phrases to escape the tech world and infiltrate our general lexicon are the couplet “digital native” and “digital immigrant.”
Collaboration is an important factor for successful innovation and change. Indeed, collaboration is an imperative for most organizations today, including any organization undergoing change. Innovation requires collaboration between individuals, as well as systemic forms of collaboration that span silos, networks and surprising connections. And yet collaboration cannot be mandated. Collaboration just doesn’t work like that.
Using the cloud in the classroom can be a powerful thing.
One of the most common uses of the cloud in today’s classroom is word processing, and one of the most common cloud-based word processing platforms is Google Drive.
We’ve talked about offering voice feedback to documents. In the above below, teacher Bjorn Behrendt explains how to set up a classroom in Google Drive. He offers dozens of tips to pre-empt the kind of challenges that you’re likely to see (e.g., students unknowingly duplicating the same file several times, not knowing which folder to turn work in to, etc.)
Since he clearly has experience in the classroom, this video is immediately better than the vast majority of universal Google Drive tutorials you’ll find.
Knowledge sharing is the corner-stone of many organisations’ knowledge-management (KM) strategy. Despite the growing significance of knowledge sharing’s practices for organisations’ competitiveness and market performance, several barriers make it difficult for KM to achieve the goals and deliver a positive return on investment.
Each year, CORE Education’s experienced staff of researchers, education trainers, and technology experts pool their knowledge and expertise, and through a thorough process put together and publish CORE’s prognosis on what are the coming ten major trends in eLearning and education generally that will make an impact upon education in New Zealand (and other parts of the world).
Si evaluar los aprendizajes ya es de por sí complicado, sobre todo si apostamos por mecanismos que nos ofrezcan información significativa sobre lo que los estudiantes aprenden o no, cuando queremos evaluar los aprendizajes que adquiridos de manera informal la dificultad crece exponencialmente. Es evidente que las personas aprendemos de...
En este apartado he recopilado las plataformas virtuales también llamadas IMS, LMS, EVEA, LCMS ya que en la actualidad existen un gran número de ellas unas gratuitas, semi-gratuitas que te dan la opción de ser premium con algo de dinero y otras privativas, muchas de ellas en un principio eran de acceso gratuito pero solo para realizar pruebas luego se vendieron de forma privada con otros nombres entre los docentes de instituciones educativas como escuelas, colegios universidades, centros de estudios y demás.
The majority of the value-creation activities in an enterprise are hidden. They happen below the surface. What we see when we think of collaboration in the traditional sense (structured team-based collaboration) is the tip of the iceberg – teams who are coordinating their actions to achieve some goal. We don’t see - and thus don’t recognize - all the activities which have enabled the team to form and which help them throughout their journey. We see the people in the team, how they coordinate their actions and the results of their actions, but we rarely see the other things which have been critical for their success. For example, we don’t see how they have used their personal networks to access knowledge, information and skills which they don’t have in their team already but which are instrumental for their success.

The free How to Become an eLearning Professional eBook is filled with the knowledge, wisdom, experience and inspiration of carefully selected eLearning professionals.
This is not your average looking, cliché reproducing, metaphysical, theory-loving free eLearning eBook. Do not expect to read any speculations, rhetorical questions, and abstractions related to eLearning. This is merely a powerful weapon in the hands of those who are truly interested in becoming the field’s Top eLearning Professionals. Make no mistake however. It’s addressed only to those with a passion for eLearning, eagerness to evolve, desperate to reach their potential, hungry for uniqueness, and ambitious enough people that want to make a difference in someone else’s life.
The associated descriptors are slightly, for my taste, light on details and helpfulness but it’s a good start. If you can keep these five ‘elements’ in mind when creating or maintaining your learning materials & resources then it’s a good place to start.
For example: “5. Only add interaction that are necessary, such as links, videos, or file downloads” … I can see why a link or download is an ‘interaction’ but for an online learning experience I’d say these are essential. The interaction comes from inclusion of activities where the students has to read and reflect on something, perhaps individually or as part of a group. Interactions between the students is what makes a valued and lasting experience, not an interaction with a hyperlink to a website, video, or PDF download.

In the network era, the fundamental nature of work will change as we first transition into a complex post-job economy. The major driver of this change is the automation of all procedural work, especially through software, but increasingly with robots. Our dominant work structures will change, giving up hierarchy for adaptability. Individuals will have to shoulder more responsibility as authority gets distributed. Organizations will need to become more networked, not just with information technology, but how people create, use, and share knowledge. This new workplace also will require different leadership that emerges from the network and temporarily assumes control, until new leadership is required. Giving up control will be a major challenge for executives used to the old ways of work. An important part of leadership will be to hold the space so that people can freely cooperate and teams can self-manage. Social learning will be a major part of all work.

WebRTC is the latest evolution of HTML5, the fifth revision of HTML, used for structuring and presenting content on the web. When HTML5 came on the scene in 2004, it spurred a new wave of innovation. Now, WebRTC will invite even greater innovation on the web—and have a huge impact on the online communications world.WebRTC is an open API drafted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). It enables browser-to-browser applications for voice calling, video chat, and peer-to-peer (P2P) without plugins.It provides a powerful alternative to other web and mobile development environments such as Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight, as well as other proprietary plugins. And while HTML5 has already brought many new capabilities to the web, it's WebRTC that is poised to be the pivotal technology.
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.
