Getting children into school is only part of the education battle. We must also ensure they learn once they are there
The low quality of education in much of the developing world is no secret.

Big Idea 2015: The Future of Work is Already Here

Big Idea 2015: The Future of Work is Already Here | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Connectivity has changed our view of work and workplaces, thanks to the lightning speed of information sharing and an increasing level of transparency that none of us anticipated. In terms of talent and organizations — this brings us to the edge of a great canyon, looking beyond. Whether we traverse the topography with ease, or with great stress, depends on our commitment to that new world of work. Work environments need to evolve with the times (now multi-generational), and organizations must keep pace.

El lado oscuro de la educación superior - Especiales - Colombia

El lado oscuro de la educación superior - Especiales - Colombia | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Las universidades más reconocidas de Colombia coexisten con otras de baja calidad que son legales.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Las semejanzas con la realidad peruana son tan grandes y escalofriantes que te hace pensar sobre la idoneidad de la implementación de un sistema de acreditación nacional. Colombia tiene más de 20 años desarrollando estos procesos de acreditación y Perú apenas esta comenzando. Sin embargo, presentan los mismos problemas de base:un sistema legal que favorece la multiplicación de las universidades de garaje, una privatización salvaje y desregulada de la educación superior y grupos de poder político detrás de estos negocios que construyen riqueza a costa de la pobreza futura de una nación

Metamaterials: Driving Performance in New Directions

Metamaterials: Driving Performance in New Directions | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Metamaterials get their amazing mechanical, electromagnetic, and acoustic properties from carefully controlled microstructures rather than from chemistry alone. They are increasingly the subject of media hype over their prospects and what miracles they may bring—invisibility and inaudibility cloaks, buildings immune to earthquakes, and ships without wakes. Developers are taking the underlying principle that says a material’s patterned structure affects its physical and pushing the properties achieved by patterning much further, using more complex structural patterns. In some cases, the properties achieved are not only different than typical bulk properties for that material, but unachievable by unpatterned materials."

The Value of Innovation

The Value of Innovation | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"The value of innovation is that it creates novel, never before seen, value. This creation of “newness” is necessary when the current state no longer generates desired outcomes (products are old & solutions are outdated, problems are so new they don’t have answers yet, or systems are ineffective). The value it creates comes in many forms. Here are three to consider:

1.Growth and renewal
2.Solutions for complex and ambiguous problems
3.More effective systems

 

Following are examples, spread across business, non-profit, and government respectively, of why we want these forms of value."

The Inescapable Paradox of Managing Creativity

The Inescapable Paradox of Managing Creativity | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
When facing the challenge of unleashing organizational innovation, many leaders fail. Some attempt to help their teams flourish by granting almost unlimited freedoms, only to discover that they have created chaos, not high performance. Others try to force their employees’ creativity through prescribed programs and activities, which usually yields humdrum results at best.

Big Idea 2015: The Unexpected Path to Creative Breakthroughs | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Some say the world is divided into humanities people and science people; artists and geeks; intuitive types and analytical types. You’re either one or the other, and our culture, education system, workplaces and news media do their level best to reinforce this divide. But throughout history, it’s been proven over and again that if you want to be truly innovative, reaching across the divide between the sciences and the arts is the starting point for triggering the boldest ideas.

From Leonardo Da Vinci to Frank Gehry, some of our greatest achievers have balanced that territory between art and science, or, as Steve Jobs repeatedly stated, the intersection between technology and liberal arts.

Ajay Chopra is a general partner at Trinity Ventures, with investments in several digital media and m-commerce companies including TubeMogul (IPO), Fitstar, Zirx, Dynamic Signal, Blend and Deliv. He is on the board of RadiumOne. Prior to joining Trinity Ventures, he co-founded Pinnacle Systems.

There are major changes afoot in advertising technology at the moment, but not everyone has realized how transformational these changes are. Indeed, analysts have talked about four types of business models in the ad-tech ecosystem, but have not discussed the underlying innovation that is driving the more leveraged of these models.

So what should investors be looking for in ad-tech companies as they navigate the ad-tech landscape?

ViscoTec Dosing Technology Enables Precision 3D Printing with Silicone and Paste

ViscoTec Dosing Technology Enables Precision 3D Printing with Silicone and Paste | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
By Scott J Grunewald
Viscosity is the enemy of 3D printing. It is the rate that a liquid deforms when placed on a flat surface, and materials that are pumped through printing heads, regardless of the size opening, are held hostage to it. The usefulness of both highly viscous materials like molten plastic, and materials with comparatively lower viscosity like paste, chocolate and silicone all have limits to the resolution that can be achieved using typical 3D printing extruders. But a developer of dosing technology has entered the 3D printing market with their technology and has seemingly managed to push past those resolution limits.

Handwriting vs typing: is the pen still mightier than the keyboard?

Handwriting vs typing: is the pen still mightier than the keyboard? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
No one can say precisely how much handwriting has declined, but in June a British survey of 2,000 people gave some idea of the extent of the damage. According to the study, commissioned by Docmail, a printing and mailing company, one in three respondents had not written anything by hand in the previous six months. On average they had not put pen to paper in the previous 41 days. People undoubtedly write more than they suppose, but one thing is certain: with information technology we can write so fast that handwritten copy is fast disappearing in the workplace.

Unicorns Vs. Dragons

Unicorns Vs. Dragons | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Everywhere I look I see a unicorn. The trouble is, I'm starting to see the dark side of the unicorn: Venture capitalists and the limited partners who back..
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"By definition of Aileen Lee, founder of Cowboy Ventures, Unicorns are U.S.-based software companies started since 2003 and valued at over $1 billion by public or private market investors. A dragon is a company that returns an entire fund — a “fund maker.” VCs can have dragons in their portfolios just as LPs can have dragons in their portfolios. But if you do the math (and we did) you will find that dragons are four times as rare as a unicorn.

And while dragons are much more valuable than unicorns, they are increasingly hard to find as the size of your venture fund grows. Simple math."

Problem is Us, Not the Robots

Problem is Us, Not the Robots | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Our problem today is not that we face a world of increasing automation, but that too many of us have grown accustomed to acting like robots, striving to perform rote tasks with efficiency and accuracy.  We are educated to provide answers, not questions and when we enter professional life we are evaluated the same way.

Today, we carry smartphones with exponentially more processing power than Feynman and Dirac put together.  We can choose robots to do a number of jobs more cheaply and efficiently than a human ever could.  Yet they remain tools, means to an end rather than ends in themselves.  Robots cannot live our lives for us.
