There are collaboration zones, houses-within-houses, and a slew of other features that are designed to foster “curiosity and creativity.”

What Are 21st-Century Skills?

What Are 21st-Century Skills? | Learning Spaces for 21C Education | Scoop.it

Learning to collaborate with others and connect through technology are essential skills in a knowledge-based economy. ATC21S started with a group of more than 250 researchers across 60 institutions worldwide who categorized 21st-century skills internationally into four broad categories:

 

Ways of thinking. Creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making and learning

 

Ways of working. Communication and collaboration

 

Tools for working. information and communications technology (ICT) and information literacy

 

Skills for living in the world. Citizenship, life and career, and personal and social responsibility

 

Putting Concepts Into Practice

The ATC21S project has now moved from conceptual to practical, working with two skills that span all four categories:

 

Collaborative problem-solving. Working together to solve a common challenge, which involves the contribution and exchange of ideas, knowledge or resources to achieve the goal

 

ICT literacy — learning in digital networks. Learning through digital means, such as social networking, ICT literacy, technological awareness and simulation. Each of these elements enables individuals to function in social networks and contribute to the development of social and intellectual capital.

The New Workplace: Connected, Collaborative, Creative

The New Workplace: Connected, Collaborative, Creative | Learning Spaces for 21C Education | Scoop.it

"The Internet of Everything is reshaping every aspect of our lives -- including how and where we work. Think back to the 1950s, when the telephone was the only connected device in the typical office, and collaboration happened only when coworkers physically walked into a conference room for a face-to-face meeting.

 

Today, we take for granted an ever-expanding collection of connected devices and collaboration tools that didn't even exist 10 or 20 years ago -- smartphones, tablets, "smart" white boards, online meetings, Web video conferencing, online document sharing, TelePresence, social media -- all helping us change the ways we communicate, collaborate, and share.

 

With the amount of new technical information in the world doubling every two years, the future holds the promise of even greater, faster change. Google Glass is just the beginning of a whole new category of wearable technology that will enable even tighter integration of technology with work and life.

 

And robots are making their way from the factory floor to the office environment -- answering questions and providing expert information as virtual receptionists, HR representatives, help-desk staffers, and more. The iRobot Ava 500 video collaboration robot, introduced in June, is just the latest example, combining TelePresence and robotics technology to extend the reach of busy employees. As this new class of robots connects to more intelligence in the cloud, they will become even better equipped to work alongside people in an office setting.

 

But the workplace of the future is not just about connected devices. It's also about when and where we work, and how we get our best ideas.

 

As always-on connections among people, process, data, and things become more pervasive, the lines between work and the rest of life will continue to blur -- allowing a busy dad to see his daughter's softball game without missing a client's important inquiry, or enabling a mom to extend the family vacation by working the last few days from their mountain cabin.

 

And this is a good thing. According to a 16-year study by Idea Champions, only 3 percent of the 10,000 people they interviewed said that they come up with their best ideas at work. The other 97 percent said their best ideas come to them while they are in the shower, on vacation, taking walks, enjoying a glass of wine, or just doing nothing. While a highly structured, tightly scheduled workplace may foster productivity, a more relaxed, unstructured environment unlocks creativity.

 

Employers can extend this "creative space" by allowing flexibility in where and when people work, and by providing the collaboration and mobility tools to allow them to work anywhere, any time. Companies can make the office environment more conducive to creativity by providing a flexible, open, collaborative workspace. Cisco's "connected workplace," where I work, features bright colors, moveable work stations, broad views to the outside, an open, free-flowing environment -- and the connected technology to enable the exchange of ideas with colleagues around the world.

 

This virtualized workspace of the future is just one of the ways the Internet of Everything is transforming the ways we work, live, play, and learn. As the number of Internet connections continues to grow, so will our opportunity to foster creativity and reinvent the very nature of work.

 

So, while these may be the "dog days" of summer, when vacations and disrupted family schedules might chip away at corporate productivity, this also may be your company's most creative time. When people's routines loosen up, with time to let their minds wander, there just might be room for the big ideas."

Thomas James's curator insight, August 20, 2013 7:58 AM

The above article written by Terry Heick gives and insight as to how important branding is. The focus of the article is to show how branding is applied in the classroom. He uses four important characteristics of making a brand important these are; brand matters, brand must be emotional, accessibility comes first and brand is the product. The characteristic of being accessible relates highly to IMC. This is because most successful brands are simple and easy for consumers to associate themselves with, which results in customer loyalty. However in this article the results will be via effective/improved learning due to the students feeling associated with the brand established in the classroom.

Alana Meikle's comment, August 22, 2013 7:08 AM
Agree with Tom. If someone learns about a brand they will feel like they can associate themselves with which is great for creating brand loyalty and recognition.
Matt West's comment, August 22, 2013 6:46 PM
Great insight here Thomas. I support your ideas of successful brands being easy for customers to associate themselves with as I too experience this. Your insight was clear and easy to understand also.
