La ciencia se va de bares | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
No hace falta ser científico para hablar de ciencia o para charlar sobre los últimos avances de la comunidad científica. Ni siquiera hace falta estar dentro de un laboratorio. Basta con tener curiosidad y acercarse a uno de los bares donde estos días se celebra Pint of Science, un festival que llega por primera vez a España con la intención de derribar esas barreras que separan la ciencia de la sociedad.

Context Is King: Why Today's MOOCs Don't Meet Corporate Needs

Context Is King: Why Today's MOOCs Don't Meet Corporate Needs | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
We need to return to the MOOC as originally envisioned: social learning. Best-in-class corporate education creates a place where colleagues can connect, form networks, and share ideas. It is increasingly important to engage learners socially, because they stand to learn as much from each other as from formal instruction. This does not require forgoing the best-in-class lectures, but rather re-packaging them as part of a broader pedagogical strategy that includes social learning as a core part of the student experience.

Aburrimiento, distracción y procrastinación: Tres fuentes de creatividad.

Aburrimiento, distracción y procrastinación: Tres fuentes de creatividad. | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Sin duda uno de los grandes impulsos de la era tecnológica es el aumento de la citadísima productividad, condición esencial del crecimiento económico que ha signado la época que nos ha tocado vivir, y en la que pocas cosas importan más que eso. Sin embargo todas las herramientas, aplicaciones y técnicas que se han creado para aumentar la productividad han tenido un objetivo común a combatir: la distracción, el aburrimiento y, como se ha dado en llamársele hoy en día, la procrastinación. Pero cabe preguntarnos, ¿es tan mala la distracción? ¿Por qué diferir o aplazar alguna tarea se ve más como algo negativo cuando puede resultar un elemento positivo?"

Las ocho tendencias que marcarán el futuro de Internet | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Casi veinte años después de sus primeros pasos en los hogares y algunas empresas, Internet evolucionó de diferentes maneras hasta convertirse en lo que es en la actualidad.
De aquella web inicial que requería de un módem telefónico para leer texto y ver apenas algunas pequeñas fotos, a la Web 2.0 y el auge de los blogs y las redes sociales como Facebook y Twitter.
Hoy Internet es una red multiplataforma que mediante tabletas, televisores y “smartphones” permite consumir contenidos en vivo de música y videos vía streaming. Desde cualquier lugar y bajo demanda. O conectarnos con cualquier persona en tiempo real."

How To Help Innovation Grow Up At Your Organization

How To Help Innovation Grow Up At Your Organization | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

Instilling innovation deep into your organization’s culture requires patience, persistence, and a long-term commitment to get it right. Management should work to redefine the behaviors recognized, rewarded, and promoted among employees. Are those behaviors linked to innovation? If not, you may need to refocus values, or perhaps create your own innovation road map to drive and manage the change you seek to create.

How an Indian Teacher is Transforming High School Practices Using Technology

How an Indian Teacher is Transforming High School Practices Using Technology | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

Technology has helped me tremendously in converting my class from ‘Teacher Driven’ to ‘Student Driven’. Technology tools also provide me real time data about students learning – so I can adjust my teaching accordingly. Moreover, because of technology, I can encourage students to pursue their other areas of interest as well. For example, if a child has to attend any national level camp or any sports event, now can access lessons from my E-classroom or connect with class through video conference .
