Can People Collaborate Effectively While Working Remotely?

Can People Collaborate Effectively While Working Remotely? | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

As more workplaces become knowledge based, more companies will experience the tension of helping employees work together effectively while allowing them to do their jobs from almost anywhere.


One of the most important questions regarding the ability to work from anywhere is the effect it has on employees' engagement levels. On the one hand, working remotely offers employees a measure of autonomy that helps them feel better equipped to do their jobs well. On the other hand, employees must have positive, trusting relationships with their managers and coworkers to stay engaged, and such relationships may be more difficult to sustain with fewer opportunities for face-to-face interaction.

 

Gallup's extensive employee engagement research - presented in its recent State of the American Workplace report -- suggests that the ability to work remotely corresponds with higher engagement, but primarily among those who spend less than 20% of their total working time doing so.

Findings form Gallup's extensive employee engagement research: 

  • Among those who never work remotely, 28% are engaged - meaning they are emotionally involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their work -- while 20% are actively disengaged, meaning they are unhappy at work and tend to disrupt their coworkers' productivity. The remaining on-site workers fall into a middle category -- not engaged.
  • Among employees who spend up to 20% of their time remotely, 35% are engaged - but engagement levels drop as employees spend more time off-site.


Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 15, 2014 7:38 PM

It could be we need to find what works best and when it works best. It might be less about working remotely or working side-by-side and doing both at appropriate times.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, March 16, 2014 6:58 AM

Gallup found that overall, remote workers are sllighlty more engaged (32%) than employees who work on site (28%). But there is a point of diminishing returns for engaging remote workers: Those who spend less than 20% of their time working remotely are the most engaged (35%) and have the lowest level of active disengagement (12%). These employees likely enjoy an ideal balance of both worlds opportunities for collaboration and camaraderie with coworkers at the office and the relative sense of freedom that comes from working remotely. #socbiz #agile

Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms? - Mind/Shift

Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms? - Mind/Shift | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
At the White House Maker Faire recently, where President Obama invited “makers” of all ages to display their creations, the  President investigated a robotic giraffe, a red weather balloon and shot a marshmallow cannon made by a student. With so much fanfare and media attention on the event, some educators are hopeful that the idea of tinkering as a way of learning might finally have made it back to the mainstream. But will the same philosophy of discovery and hands-on learning make it into classrooms?

“Most of the people that I know who got into science and technology benefited from a set of informal experiences before they had much formal training,” said Dale Dougherty, editor of Make Magazine and founder of Maker Faire on KQED’s Forum program. “And I mean, like building rockets in the backyard, tinkering, playing with things. And that created the interest and motivation to pursue science.”

That spirit of play and discovery of knowledge is missing from much of formal education, Dougherty said. Students not only have no experience with making or the tools needed to build things, they’re often at a tactile deficit. “Schools haven’t changed, but the students have,” Dougherty said. “They don’t come with these experiences.”

Blended Learning ist meiner Meinung nach nicht nur ein Motivator für die SuS mal mit anderen Medien konfrontiert zu werden, sondern integriert sie auch in der heutigen digitalen Welt: Immer weniger ist für uns ein Leben ohne Computer vorstellbar - dies muss darum meiner Meinung nach schon in der Schule (v.a. im jungen Alter) implementiert werden. 


Durch das Blended Learning kommt einerseits Abwechslung durch die Medien rein und andererseits ist es wie einen Szenenwechsel für die Schüler, wo sie, obwohl der Inhalt noch der gleiche ist, die Geschichte (Mathe, Geographie, ect.) auf eine andere Art und Weise zusgespielt kriegen und der Transfer bei manchen sogar besser fällt als bei einer Methode zu bleiben.

Maker Education and Social-Emotional Development - User Generated Education @JackieGerstein #makered | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

"Maker education, when planned around skills acquisition, can enhance social-emotional development.

Self-Awareness: Making in all its forms requires a full range of skills including cognitive, physical, and affective skills. Given this need for multiple and diverse skill set, effective and successful making comes from an accurate assessment of one’s strengths and limitations as well as having optimism and confidence that challenges can be overcome within the making process. Example questions related to self-awareness and making include:

     * What strategies am I using to increase my awareness of my emotions and how they influence my performance during the making-related tasks?

     * What are my strengths given this particular making task?

     * What are my limitations and how can I use my strengths to overcome them? ..."

Shannon Mersand: 12 Questions (and Answers) about Makerspaces! | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
What is needed to start a Makerspace in a classroom or school?

Passion - You need to have passion and a belief in the educational value of maker-style projects.

Space - This can be a whole room or only part of a room.

Supplies - Start small with simple craft materials. Often sending a message out to colleagues and the community asking for donations of materials works well.

Storage - Create a place to store materials when they are not in use and student projects as they are being worked on.

What’s More Effective: Gamification or Game-based Learning? | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
The world of learning and development is changing dramatically and at long last, learning managers are discovering where the real key to success lies. It’s not about robust reporting or compliance (although they’re also pretty important) – if you want your learning programme to deliver great results, you need to focus on the people taking the learning content – the learners themselves.

Learner engagement is everything. As more and more L&D professionals realise this, the appetite for solutions that encourage engagement has increased enormously. Enter our friends gamification and game-based learning! With so many priorities vying for your attention, you probably don’t want to spend weeks and months choosing between the two approaches. You want to know which one will work better and we’re only too happy to help you out!
