The More Things Change, the More Our Objections to Change Stay the Same

The More Things Change, the More Our Objections to Change Stay the Same | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Let me suggest five simple principles to change how we make change:

1. originality (look at things as if you've never looked at it before)

2. break from the past without disavowing it

3. leaders encourage a sense of dissatisfaction with the status quo

4. a sense of "humbition" among leaders 

5. priorities and practices have to stay consistent in good times and bad times.

Good stuff from George Siemens and his "connectivist" approach to learning theory. Nice to see some recognition for Canadian theorists in this field.

This rescoop comes at the sharing of Ana Cristina Pratas onto her curation page Digital Delights.  I like how the focus address the use of social networks as a structured organization for information gathering and ongoing  shared learning.

Curated Guidelines and Examples for Aggregating Content Professionally

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, September 8, 2013 10:23 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Among the types of content curation that are broadly used, content aggregation has been one of the first and most popular approaches that has naturally sprung up.

Content aggregation itself can be carried out in many different ways, from a completely manual approach to a fully automated one, with many different shades in between.

 

If you are interested in learning more about these, and about how to aggregate content in the most ethical and professional fashion, I strongly suggest reading these two short articles written by two curation professionals:

http://mindymcadams.com/tojou/2013/aggregation-and-curation-in-journalism/ ;
 http://stevebuttry.wordpress.com/2012/05/16/aggregation-guidelines-link-attribute-add-value/ ;

  The first, by Mindy McAdams is a curated version of the second one which was published more than a year earlier by Steve Buttry. Together they do an excellent job of clarifying to the non-expert what curation and aggregation are all about.

 

The two articles offer clear guidelines, real-world examples and recommendations on how you can make content aggregation provide true additional value to both the content sources used and to the readers alike.

 

 

Recommended. 8/10

Mobilizing Knowledge to Create Convenient Learning Moments

Mobilizing Knowledge to Create Convenient Learning Moments | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Chunks, bits and short modules make learning more manageable and easier to integrate into long-term memory. Long classroom or web-based training courses may accomplish the function of training, but rarely achieve desired retention rates. Instead of just dumping information on the learner, employees are expecting the content to be easy to find, relevant and digestible in the way their brains process information.

Build an Enterprise Learning Network in your Enterprise Social Network and integrate social learning in the workplace « Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:

"The annual Top 100 Tools for Learning survey (now in its 7th year) also shows that people are increasingly using social tools for their own professional learning, e.g. They are using social networks to build a trusted network of friends and colleagues (often referred to as a Personal Learning Network or PLN) where they can ask and answer questions of one another, exchange resources and ideas, brainstorm and solve problems, keep up to date with they are doing, as well as learn from one another – often without realising it They are using social tools to “learn the new” and keep up with what is happening in their industry and profession. They are using social tools to find immediate solutions to their everyday performance problems. They are using social tools to participate in wider open educational opportunities online, e.g. MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). They are using social tools to share what they find, learn and create and know with others."

Can kindness be built as an organizational practice?  We believe it can, and it starts with building empathy.  When we have empathy, we understand, respect, and value others’ perspective.  As leaders, we can cultivate empathy in our organizations by bringing people together in a respectful dialogue to share ideas and solve problems together.

"Many of us don’t value taking the time for intentional learning within our organizations.  We are so focused on getting things done, checking it off the to do list and the forward momentum that it requires, that we miss an important opportunity to hit the pause button, reflect, and improve process.   Being intentional about learning can also help an organization scale effectively."
