Enhancing the Learner Experience: 3 Tips to Make eLearning More Engaging

Enhancing the Learner Experience: 3 Tips to Make eLearning More Engaging | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Would you be interested in 3 Tips to Make eLearning More Engaging?

 

Many of our clients who are just getting into eLearning give us an enchanting reason for finally abandoning the libraries of presentation decks that they have been building for the past decade or so. They want to find a magical place where they can control and standardize the content, but still have learners engaged enough to care about the topic, remember the content, and improve their on-the-job performance. ELearning can do that. This is that magical place.

Office Mate: The creative endgame for functional obsolescence

Office Mate: The creative endgame for functional obsolescence | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Forget the corner office. These days, it’s about the coffee shop around the corner, the food trucks outside the lobby, the light rail that passes an office building every 15 minutes.

The work place is all about the worker. Employee and entrepreneur are synonymous. Human resource departments are working in concert with building owners, managers, developers and brokers.

Employee demographics are spanning radically different generations with equally varied needs for a work-life balance. These are all observations shared by industry experts, from international architecture, design and planning firm Gensler, to brokerage houses and developers in the Phoenix Metro.

This startup is putting solar cells on a diet, because thinner is better

This startup is putting solar cells on a diet, because thinner is better | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
A conventional silicon solar panel is made up of a series of silicon cells overlaid with a metal grid on the sun-facing side, which transport the electrons produced by the cells. There are usually layers of clear materials, including glass, that protect the front and back of the solar cells. The cells usually run from 150 to 180 microns thick and are sliced with wire-saws from a silicon ingot that is created from a pot of molten silicon.

Solexel produces its own cells of roughly 40 microns by using what’s called epitaxial lift-off, a process that grows a cell layer on a host material underneath before slicing off that cell layer. This process is one of the ways to produce ultra-thin cells and allows the manufacturer to re-use the host material (the substrate) repeatedly.

Dolls, pets, drones: six ways that robots will change the way we live

Dolls, pets, drones: six ways that robots will change the way we live | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
No time for a dog, but missing a pet? Want to retrofit your house without turning it into a building site? Wondering how you could fix your roof without a ladder? Robots could be the answer. Digital animals, construction drones and furniture that is smart in all senses of the word are among the innovations that could soon be heading into, under and above our homes, roboticists revealed last week.

Speaking at Re.Work’s the Future of Robotics forum in London, experts from academia, industry and the startup scene came together to unveil the latest innovations from their labs, share their experiences and discuss the challenges of turning prototypes into viable products. “Robotics investment is really on the increase at the moment,” said Nikita Johnson, founder of Re.work.

Las tendencias tecnológicas más estratégicas para 2015 según Gartner

Las tendencias tecnológicas más estratégicas para 2015 según Gartner | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Según Gartner una tendencia tecnológica estratégica es aquella que cuenta con un gran potencial para generar impacto significante en las organizaciones durante los próximos tres años. Los factores que intervienen incluyen un alto potencial de disrupción en los negocios, usuarios finales o IT, la necesidad de una mayor inversión o el riesgo de adoptarlos demasiado tarde.

Tal y como afirmó el videpresidente de Gartner, David Cearley “Hemos identificado las tendencias tecnológicas principales que las organizaciones no pueden permitirse ignorar en sus planes estratégicos” Estas tendencias se ubican principalmente en tres áreas; la fusión del mundo real con el virtual, el impacto de la tecnología en los cambios del negocio digital y la aparición de la inteligencia colectiva en todas partes.

Apple y la comoditización de la operadora

Apple y la comoditización de la operadora | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"El pasado día 16, en suOctober event 2014, Apple planteó un evento en el que presentaba el iPad Air 2, un iPad Mini 3 y un nuevo iMac más fino y con mejor pantalla, y que el sistema operativo Yosemite ya estaba disponible. Sin embargo, escondido en las especificaciones de uno de los productos, el iPad Air 2, había lo que puede ser una auténtica carga de profundidad por su relevancia potencial: la Apple SIM. En efecto, hablamos de un dispositivo que pone a prueba un concepto completamente nuevo y que, hasta el momento, había sido de planteamiento imposible: una tarjeta SIM que no es propiedad de una operadora, sino del fabricante del terminal". Este puede ser el inicio de una tremenda revolución comercial.

 

Carlos Fosca's insight:

Uno de los grandes negocios y por tanto abusos al consumidor por parte de las operadoras de telecomunicaciones estaría a punto de finalizar, pues Apple esta sacando la primera tarjeta SIM que permitiría que un usuario del dispositivo móvil elija, en el país donde se encuentre, al proveedor local que mejor convenga. Es decir, los abusivos costos por concepto de "roaming internacional" podrían estar por desaparecer. Quizás todavía es muy pronto para cantar victoria pero lo cierto es que las aguas comienzan a agitarse.

Convergence of The Internet Of Things and machine-to-machine (M2M) technology

Convergence of The Internet Of Things and machine-to-machine (M2M) technology | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
 To anyone who is tuned into the tech world, it should not come as earth shattering news that machine-to-machine (M2M) technology and the Internet of Things have hit a major convergence point in the tech industry.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"IoT (Internet of Things) thus has various industrial applications that can decrease equipment maintenance costs and generate subscription revenues to offset cloud infrastructure expenses. As we understand it now, the Internet of Things is not just a collection of M2M devices; in the Internet of Things, you can make any “thing” connected and you can retrofit any connectivity into legacy industrial equipment and make it smarter" by Artyom Astafurov.

Google Design Minutes — Glass: Make it simple

Isabelle Olson talks about the focus her team put into making Glass simple, and how simplicity guided all the decisions they made. #GoogleDesignMinutes
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Muy buen ejemplo de como la idea de simplificar un prototipo hasta que este sea atractivo para el consumidor resulta ser la pieza clave de la innovación. Como decía Steve Jobs “Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

Hybrid Solar Cells Promise More Than 95% Efficiency

Hybrid Solar Cells Promise More Than 95% Efficiency | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Today's silicon solar cells have a theoretical maximum efficiency of 33.7%; the rest of the incident light is wasted by heating up the cell. Gates Cambridge Scholar Maxim Tabachnyk, research fellow Akshay Rao, and other members of the university's Cavendish Laboratory want to develop an organic film that can convert that wasted energy into a form that can be routinely turned into electricity by the underlying silicon cell.

Graphene-like substance generates electricity when stretched

Graphene-like substance generates electricity when stretched | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Certain materials exhibit what are called piezoelectric characteristics, meaning they develop electric charges when stretched or compressed. In general, the piezoelectric materials we use are large crystals. But researchers have predicted that a substance that forms single-atom-thick molecules—MoS2—would be strongly piezoelectric. And now researchers have studied these effects experimentally, demonstrating that the number of layers and their orientation have a big impact on the substance’s piezoelectric characteristics.

Entrepreneurs Need A New Adaptive Innovator Mindset

Entrepreneurs Need A New Adaptive Innovator Mindset | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
One of the business ironies that many entrepreneurs have learned the hard way in the past is that ideas which are truly disruptive carry the highest risk of failure, take the longest to gain traction, and thus are the least likely to get external funding. So some entrepreneurs stick with incremental solutions, avoiding more transformational or adaptive solutions implying disruptive change.

In the past, only a few entrepreneurs, like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, maintained the passion, patience, and determination to accomplish disruptive change in the marketplace. Today with the growing number of disruptive technologies available, like cloud computing, wireless sensors, Big Data, and mobile devices, an incremental solutions mindset is no longer enough to win.

The Internet Of Things Isn't A Technology Fad

The Internet Of Things Isn't A Technology Fad | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Right at this moment, IoT is enabling new business services, experiences and models across multiple industries with powerful, quantifiable force. From wireless soil monitors that automate irrigation and natural resource management for agricultural operations, to connected jet engines that ensure travelers get to their destination safely and on time, IoT is creating considerable value for both businesses and their customers. And that value derives not from the soil monitors or jet engines themselves, but rather from the transformative, monetizable services those connected devices enable. This is why the convergence of our physical and digital worlds is more than a fleeting phenomenon, it’s a revolution – one that’s creating new experiences, reconfiguring industries and changing lives, on an even greater scale than the Internet itself.
