On Blogging and Social Media: How to search Scoop.it sites | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Scoop.it is a great platform for curating web based content and collecting together your own portfolio or reading lists to share with the world. One of my major problems though with Scoop.it, used to be finding the articles and links I had saved and searching for useful articles on other Scoop.it.

Entertainment is not the goal of a learning programme. However if the learning material designer can achieve a well-balanced and well-thought out, entertaining learning environment, it has a great potential to influence a learner’s emotions and motivation in a positive way – or ‘wow the learner’.

Evolving A Learning Organization: A Necessity for Executive Development* | PACES, LLC Executive Leadership Development | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

"What are some of the characteristics of a Learning Organization? Executives, managers and employees who are truly engaged in their work and striving to reach their maximum potential through a shared vision of the company with their colleagues are clear indicators of being involved in a Learning Organization. They are guided by becoming exceptionally competent in a variety of fields and their personal goals are linked closely with the mission of the organization. These professionals see their personal work as an intrinsic part of a broader system where their interrelationships with co-workers, vendors and others help them devise processes that emphasize working closely together. From one another, they constantly strive to expand their knowledge base so as to generate long term solutions to corporate and team issues. Learning organization professionals demonstrate a life-long commitment to high quality work which affords continual learning and growing towards optimal performance. Learning Organization members serve their counterparts and others in highly effective ways because they have learned to prepare for change by working with others during change initiatives."

10 Emerging Educational Technologies and How They Are Being Used Across the Globe - InformED

10 Emerging Educational Technologies and How They Are Being Used Across the Globe - InformED | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

by Saga Briggs

 

"As an educator, you have probably heard about many of these technologies, if not all of them. But the Horizon Report project pushes the discussion into fresh territory, predicting a timeframe for their implementation into mainstream education and presenting an impressive list of institutions and individuals who are already using them in every discipline imaginable.

T

"oo often it is education’s own practices that limit the broader uptake of new technologies. Whether it’s insufficient ongoing professional development or the reluctance to accept the need for digital media literacy, significant challenges stand in the way of smooth assimilation.

 

"What the Horizon reports show, however—even more than which technologies are rising to the top— is that smooth assimilation is possible, and that countless educators are making the move creatively and with admirable conviction.

(Valdis Krebs, 2002). Social Network Analysis (SNA) is a method for visualizing our people and connection power, leading us to identify how we can best interact to share knowledge.

When to use:Visualize relationships within and outside of the organization.Facilitate identification of who knows who and who might know what - teams and individuals playing central roles - thought leaders, key knowledge brokers, experts, etc.Identify isolated teams or individuals and knowledge bottlenecks.Strategically work to improve knowledge flows.Accelerate the flow of knowledge and information across functional and organisational boundaries.Improve the effectiveness of formal and informal communication channels.Raise awareness of the importance of informal networks.

Introducing Mindfulness in Organizations

Introducing Mindfulness in Organizations | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

A topic that often comes up – especially among coaches – is the challenge of introducing mindfulness into an organizational setting."

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:

"Every organization has a different need – and opinion – about mindfulness. In my experience, listening and framing accordingly has been more successful than pitching a one-size-fits-all program. When you try to understand what the actual business and organizational needs are, the usefulness of mindfulness approaches to their obstacles and opportunities becomes more obvious."

Organizational Body Language | Peer to Peer Review

Organizational Body Language | Peer to Peer Review | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

"Organizational body language is, for all of these reasons, both tremendously powerful and highly dangerous. The danger, I think, lies less in the risk that we’ll send the wrong message, and much more in the risk that we will send messages inadvertently. It’s the signal you send by accident that will come back to bite you—not only because it may be a message you don’t wish to send (and perhaps even the opposite of the message you wish to send), but because you won’t be prepared for the response to it."

UCSB study reveals that overthinking can be detrimental to human performance

UCSB study reveals that overthinking can be detrimental to human performance | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Trying to explain riding a bike is difficult because it is an implicit memory. The body knows what to do, but thinking about the process can often interfere. So why is it that under certain circumstances paying full attention and trying hard can actually impede performance? A new UC Santa Barbara study, published today in the Journal of Neuroscience, reveals part of the answer.

 

There are two kinds of memory: implicit, a form of long-term memory not requiring conscious thought and expressed by means other than words; and explicit, another kind of long-term memory formed consciously that can be described in words. Scientists consider these distinct areas of function both behaviorally and in the brain.
