Mind the (Skills) Gap - HBR Blog

Mind the (Skills) Gap - HBR Blog | Lifelong and Life-Wide Learning | Scoop.it

Learn, relearn, unlearn, repeat. It's vital for U.S. competitiveness, and your own.

 

A bachelor's degree used to provide enough basic training to last a career. Yet today, the skills college graduates acquire during college have an expected shelf life of only five years according to extensive work we've done in conjunction with Deloitte's Shift Index. The key takeaway? The lessons learned in school can become outdated long before student loans are paid off.

Curation Is As Important as Creation

Curation Is As Important as Creation | Lifelong and Life-Wide Learning | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are interested in understanding how "content curation" differentiates itself from simple re-sharing and re-blogging here is a great article by Chris DeLine.


Great advice for anyone wanting to become an effective content curator: “Whether in tweets, in blog posts, in podcasts, or in newsletters, be ruthless with your attention.


...


Some adopt a strategy of blanket-curation, throwing everything new or fresh or remotely interesting online and letting other consumers make their own value distinctions.


Others assume the role of tastemaker, selectively making the decisions themselves.


Both have their place, but the former contributes to what Jonathan Haidt calls “the paradox of abundance,” which he says “undermines the quality of our engagement.”

How many content-overload websites can you monitor before you become overwhelmed by volume? How many share-explosions does it take before you remove a friend from your Facebook feed? How many Tumblr pages can you pay attention to before the reblogs become a blur?


...

Thoughtful, honest, and caring curation isn’t entirely different than creation.


After all, the topics you choose to research, to blog about, and to discuss with friends all begin with the process of sifting through the media abyss yourself and singling out worthwhile information."


What really counts is to create content that is useful, meaningful and helpful for others, whether from direct hand authorship, or by curating the best existing resources.


Insightful. 8/10

The globalisation of work - and people

The globalisation of work - and people | Lifelong and Life-Wide Learning | Scoop.it

Thanks to our connected world, now employees have become globalised, not just the companies they work for, writes Prof Lynda Gratton.

 

In the near future, at least five billion people around the world will use some form of mobile device to download information, access knowledge and coach and teach each other.

 

The West's positional advantage in educating its population will be rapidly eroded even for higher skilled jobs as online education platforms like MIT's OpenCourseWare, Open Yale, iTunes U and Khan Academy connect students in vast numbers, whilst enabling them to have very similar learning experiences and work towards similar qualifications.

 

The implications of the globalisation of education and job market is the rise of what we might call "transnationals". In the past this is a word to describe corporations - now it's a word to describe people.
