Ferananda's curator insight, April 23, 12:39 AM
Real Economy Lab is a new initiative aimed at building coherence for the global movement to an equitable and regenerative economics of the future using collective intelligence to ensure the impact of the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
Our first, and current task is to create a mind-map of the international new economy ecosystem. We are currently undertaking a survey of hundreds of ‘tribes’ around the world who are part of that new economy ecosystem. The survey will seek to understand how groups and organisations carrying out these efforts can be mapped, what their connections are, what matters to their work and how they trying to achieve their aims.
The aim of the lab is to build a participatory platform which provides a unifying picture of the projects, ideas, movements and networks offering viable alternatives to the faltering status quo, and to present this as a compelling case for wider strategic collaboration, coordination and support by all stakeholders.

5 Curation Habits That Can Change Your Content Marketing

5 Curation Habits That Can Change Your Content Marketing | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it
I am inspired by curators—and it is a relevant idea for marketing. The business world has been increasingly turning towards curation as a way to add meaning to marketing. I often describe it as the forgotten side of content marketing. Amidst all the discussion about creating great content – who will take on the valuable role of just helping us to find the great content that already exists on the web or otherwise?

13 Implications for Educational institutions at the primary, secondary, and post-secondary levels, are largely the products of technology infrastructure and social circumstances of the past.

The landscape has changed and educational institutions should consider how to adapt quickly in response. Some directions of change might include:

»Placing additional emphasis on developing skills such as critical thinking, insight, and analysis capabilities

»Integrating new-media literacy into education programs

»Including experiential learning that gives prominence to soft skills—such as the ability to collaborate, work in groups, read social cues, and respond adaptively

»Broadening the learning constituency beyond teens and young adults through to adulthood

»Integrating interdisciplinary training that allows students todevelop skills and knowledge in a range of subjects

There is a lot of value in this infographic!  The future of work will defined by knowledge transfer and skills development that are completely being reshaped.

 

To succeed as an entrepreneur, you will need to be able to grasp these concepts early and apply them to all facets of developing ideas, products and services and navigating a global landscape.

eLearning Design: Instructional Design Models Vs Strategies

eLearning Design: Instructional Design Models Vs Strategies | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it
As instructional designers, at the start of every new eLearning project, we are called upon to think of a strategy which is best suited to the project at hand given the technical, time, and financial constraints. In this scenario, we often tend to mix up our strategies with models. Though the two might overlap, there is a fine distinction between a strategy and a model. We will understand the distinction between the two so that we have a very clear idea of what each is and what is its place in the scheme of things.

Enough Leadership. Time for Communityship

Enough Leadership. Time for Communityship | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Heard the word “leadership” lately, for example in the last five minutes? We are obsessed with leadership: say organization and we think leadership. That’s why those organization charts are so ubiquitous. They tell us who sits on top of whom, but not, for example, who talks with whom? Must we be so fixated on formal authority?

Henry Mintzberg points out that it’s time for us to discover that the best of our organizations have been living communityship all their lives. 


We are social animals who cannot function effectively without a social system that is larger than ourselves. This is what is meant by “community”—the social glue that binds us together for the greater good.


Mintberg also wrote about the human need for a sense of belonging to and caring for something larger than themselves in an HBR article from 2009. I encourage you to read it here

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, March 9, 3:33 PM

Here is a significant update of the Padagogy  Wheel developed by Allan Carrington. Here is what he has to say about what is included in the update:

  • Links to twice as many apps: It has direct links to 122 of the latest and most popular educational iPad apps.
  • App selection criteria: to help teachers make better app decisions These also are linked to the APPitic website and each Bloom’s Cognitive Domain Category has comprehensive selection criteria.  Prompts asking the teacher to think how the app would help the user achieve the domain activities.
  • Each domain activity linked to apps:  (that’s wheel 5 from the core) is linked to a group of apps considered most useful to enhance good outcomes.
  • The SAMR model wheel better communicates the idea.  This might seem a small addition but I have added two way arrows around the wheel.  I hope this helps teachers understand that the idea is to virtually align the SAMR model with the Bloom’s category they are working with.  The idea is once one or more apps are chosen then think Redefinition if possible. Just keep in focus that the SAMR wheel is meant to spin.  It also has a link to a great video from Dr P. as we call him in the ADE community (Dr Ruben Puentedura) who invented the SMAR model, that’s also worth watching.
  • The QR codes have been updated: and provide a great way to connect the “treeware” (aka printed) poster to online resources.  Every mobile device should have a QR reader App …. they are free as well.  The email QR code is particularly cool in it sets up an email to me in your email program and even gives it a subject line and says “Hi Allan”.
  • Information available in 19 languages: This is the most exciting new feature to me and it is again thanks to the hard work of the APPitic team.  So if one of these languages is your heart language, and not English, you can research the app and the pedagogical resources in your first language. Now that opens up help to a lot more teachers.  Of course the challenge is to get a padagogy wheel in the same 19 languages … anyone like to help?

An Index to Measure Success in Enterprise Collaboration | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it
As a child my parents used to draw a line near the door to track my growth, centimeter after centimeter. That small increase every week or two stood as a direction. Any small change was a step. Many lines together separated childhood from maturity. That same maturity is what quite all the organizations I know are looking for when it comes to Social Collaboration. A maturity that could be reached through a number of ingredients such as more predictable roll-out strategies, stronger competencies, technology that is easier to use or an organizational culture that is more conducive of an open sharing and innovation. A higher readiness equates to more intense business results with a smaller investment in a shorter timeframe. Can Social Collaboration maturity be objectively evaluated and compared? I'm convinced it can and actually it should. That's why together with Stefano Besana, we have put together the Social Collaboration Index, a readiness score based on 8 dimensions that can be
