Working smarter with a 70:20:10 framework

Working smarter with a 70:20:10 framework | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
The 70:20:10 framework – where 70% of the learning is on the job, 20% from colleagues and 10% from formal courses and reading – is proving an effective tool to support the transition of learning and development to the new world of work. The workplace is becoming increasingly flexible and borderless – the traditional nine to five is rapidly phasing out. Learning now needs to be just as fluid as the mobile collaboration that employees have come to expect as part of their working life.
Organisations that are allowing employees to work smarter, whether at home, at work or during business travel, and on the device of their choice, are also exploring how to make learning content available anytime, anywhere and on any device. Mobile learning provides on-the-job relevance (the main part of the 70:20:10 approach), and performance support is provided at the point of need.

This is a smart framework that I personally embrace loving the work of Charles Jennings http://charles-jennings.blogspot.com.au/ The key for me is tailoring it to match situations and most importantly people's individual needs, expectations and desires

The Startup Illusion

The Startup Illusion | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Having an idea is easy; being able to make it into something profitable is what separates the failures and the success stories. As a student, you have the opportunity to take advantage of an enormous amount of collective experience to help you build your business — in the future.

In short, if you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, see through the veil. I am acutely aware of both the potential for failure and the chance of success, so heed my warning; the startup game is rigged. Hedge your bets and stay in school, but don’t ever stop working toward transforming your dreams of entrepreneurial success into a reality". By Noah Benesch

What does the digital economy mean for competitiveness?

What does the digital economy mean for competitiveness? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
The world economy is currently in the midst of a shift from the internet economy to what can be best called the Digital Consumer Economy, writes Natarajan Chandrasekaran.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

La Fletcher School at Tufts University publicó este año un índice que nos muestra qué países se están moviendo más rápido en el mundo de la economía digital (http://www.scoop.it/t/managing-technology-for-learning-innovation?q=digital+economy). Como se podrá apreciar, Perú no existe en esta economía, pero Chile, Colombia, México aparecen como países con un gran potencial para desarrollar este sector. Perú debe desarrollar aceleradamente sus capacidades en este campo (educación en ciencias, artes y tecnología, capacidad emprendedora de base tecnológica y toda la infraestructura requerida) y hacer que las cinco fuerzas de la economía digital: “1)Mobility and Pervasive Computing, 2)Big Data, 3)Social Media, 4)Cloud, and 5) AI-Robotics” aprovechen nuestras fortalezas competitivas como país: biodiversidad y recursos naturales (extraídos y aprovechados de manera responsable), tradición milenaria artística y enorme diversidad culturar, para constituir una industria no sólo competitiva sino también innovadora en el mundo global.

MakerBot Launches Hands-On Learning Guide For 3D Printing In The Classroom

MakerBot Launches Hands-On Learning Guide For 3D Printing In The Classroom | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Thousands of educators throughout the U.S. are embracing 3D printing as a new way to teach 21st century skills and prepare students for the jobs of the future[1]. Taking the first steps to introduce students to 3D printing, however, can be challenging. MakerBot, a global leader in the desktop 3D printing industry, conducted in-depth research this spring to better understand how to help educators incorporate 3D printing in classrooms[2]. The research shows that acquiring 3D design skills is a major hurdle for educators and there is no single resource to address this need.

I first heard about the maker movement last summer. I initially thought that this was a direct arm of the STEAM movement to incorporate arts into science, technology, engineering and math. It has been part of my own genius hour to continue to explore and learn more about the maker movement. Here’s a little about the path that I’ve followed so far...

Can high-tech photosynthesis turn CO2 into fuel for your car? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
It’s not science fiction: research groups all over the world have been working to develop artificial photosynthesis, which could greatly reduce our dependence on crude oil and make use of the growing amount of manmade carbon dioxide emissions that contribute to climate change. The concept received a nod from US President Barack Obama when he mentioned “turning sunlight into liquid fuel” in his State of the Union speech in January.

Open Innovation 2.0 (OI2) is a new paradigm based on a Quadruple Helix Model where government, industry, academia and civil participants work together to co-create the future and drive structural changes far beyond the scope of what any one organization or person could do alone. This model encompasses also user-oriented innovation models to take full advantage of ideas' cross-fertilisation leading to experimentation and prototyping in real world setting.

Neuroplasticity: Rewiring Your Brain For Optimal Learning

Neuroplasticity: Rewiring Your Brain For Optimal Learning | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Just as weightlifting and physical exercise builds your muscles, when you’re learning the nerve cells in your brain are growing with mental exercise and these neurons are developing greater connectivity.

The growth and rewiring of our brain cells is called neuroplasticity. As we learn, our brain literally remodels itself based on our new experiences.

Until recently, the conventional thinking was that our brains were hardwired at birth and therefore unchangeable. In actuality, our brains are like malleable plastic that is constantly being reshaped by our daily experiences."

How Becoming a Father Changes Your Brain

How Becoming a Father Changes Your Brain | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
A team led by Pilyoung Kim at the Universities of Denver and Yale twice scanned the brains of 16 new fathers (average age 36; 7 were first-time dads). The first scan took place between 2 and 4 weeks after their babies were born; the second scan 12 to 16 weeks later. Previous research has shown functional changes in the brains of fathers, in the way that they show heightened neural activity in response to the sight of their own infants. However, this is the first time that researchers have documented structural changes in the brains of human fathers.
