Build Partnerships! Tools for Strategical Library Development

Build Partnerships! Tools for Strategical Library Development | Just Plain Interesting Stuff! | Scoop.it

Libraries are under pressure and need to develop and manifest themselves. Partnerships and collaborative innovation is a method to secure and develop the libraries’ influence on society.

Many libraries already collaborate with external partners, but very few libraries have a strategical and professional way of working with partnerships. Instead of considering partnerships and external collaboration as a method to continuously achieve the library’s overall objectives, the external collaboration is often used for small and  unexpected needs.

5 Insights on Facebook vs Pinterest in Driving Sales - Infographic

5 Insights on Facebook vs Pinterest in Driving Sales - Infographic | Just Plain Interesting Stuff! | Scoop.it

Pinterest has been grabbing the headlines recently as its network approaches 20 million users per month.

 

In March compete.com reported that Pinterest had received 18 million unique visitors with AppData reporting that the visual social network had received a record 4.4 million daily active users on March 18.

 

There are reports that Pinterest’s growth is slowing but just like Twitter and Facebook reports of its demise maybe slightly premature.

 

The Power of “Low Friction” Photo Sharing

 

Pinterest’s value to marketers is that it provides an easy to use platform for “pinning” images, photos and videos to your Pinterest account while also posting and sharing to your networks to Facebook and Twitter in the same process.


Pinterest reduces the effort and friction to share images on the social web which crowd sources your marketing and the spreading of your brand images.

Collective Intelligence | Conversation | Edge

Collective Intelligence | Conversation | Edge | Just Plain Interesting Stuff! | Scoop.it

Tom Malone's MIT Center for Collective Intelligence is emerging as the single most active researchsite for studying augmented collective intelligence. -- Howard

 

"If we want to predict what's going to happen, especially if we want to be able to take advantage of what's going to happen, we need to understand those possibilities at a much deeper level than we do so far. That's really our goal in the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, which I direct. In fact, one way we frame our core research question there is: How can people and computers be connected so that—collectively—they act more intelligently than any person, group or computer has ever done before? If you take that question seriously, the answers you get are often very different from the kinds of organizations and groups we know today."

Making Interactive Lectures

Making Interactive Lectures | Just Plain Interesting Stuff! | Scoop.it

This module on Interactive Lectures provides strategies and specific examples of techniques and activities designed to involve students in large and small lecture-based classes. The module is designed for the instructor who does not want to replace lecture, but rather to enhance and punctuate lecture to create an interactive classroom experience

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, August 9, 2012 9:44 AM
Interactive lectures can increase student engagement with course material and facilitate learning. In traditional lectures, the majority of class time is devoted to the instructor’s delivery of information. During interactive lectures, the instructor interrupts the lecture to allow time for short activities.
These activities can take on many forms as discussed later, but they are important in that they allow students to use material learned in class and contribute to their own learning.During lecture breaks, the instructor poses a question or problem that promotes students to actively work with the concepts learned in class. Because learners tend to retain information based on their involvement in the learning process, transforming students from passive receivers of information into active users of information leads to increases in student retention of material.
The idea of incorporating activities within lecture time is often met with the criticism that it wastes time that could be used to cover additional course material. However, sustained lectures that exceed the typical attention span of 10-20 minutes do not ensure that the material is actually reaching students. In fact, students record in their notes a greater percentage of material from short lecture segments than they do from longer lectures. Many of the activities described below take only a few minutes to implement, but still provide important learning opportunities for students.Another benefit of using activities within lectures is that it can create a feedback loop for instructors to get information about student learning earlier than the exam or major assignment date. Seeing students struggle with an activity can be the stimulus for the instructor to review important concepts related to that activity.
In recent years, the lecture has fallen on hard times.
Prominent researchers have raised doubts about its use, claiming that lectures rely on rote learning and fail to promote active engagement. Yet most of us have either attended or delivered wonderful lectures—lectures that have expanded our thinking, provided fresh insights, or opened our eyes to new worlds. Clearly, lectures can be an efficient way of transmitting large amounts of information in a relatively small amount of time.
