Focus ALSO on:

 

5. Emotions.

Emotionally-charged stimuli capture people’s attention immediately. On top of that, the brain remembers an emotional experience better than anything else. In eLearning, you can make this work for you by encouraging emotional response. Many of these tools, such as compelling stories, videos, images, and visually engaging screens can evoke emotion; try to connect emotionally with learners, and they will learn more and better.

Create shocking, impressive or surprising moments that grabs your learner’s attention right away.

Content marketing: organization and management

Content marketing: organization and management | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Where does content marketing belong in the organization and do you need someone to manage it. A high-level overview of tasks and challenges.

 

Depending on the scope, context and ‘content marketing maturity level’ of your organization, you will organize the way you “do” content marketing differently. There will always – at the very least – be some people (internal, external or hybrid) who create content, someone who overviews the “project” (which in the end it is) and involvement of several stakeholders.

Advances in technology, the professionalisation of the skills base, the economic shake-up that was precipitated by the recession, the desires of many to work in a way that suits them: all of these factors have caused the numbers of self-employed and owner-managers to soar in recent years. Government figures show most of the new companies created in the last decade are micro-businesses.

Awesome visual featuring the 7 Signs of Professional Learning | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Here is a useful visual from ASCD featuring 7 signs of professional learning. These are aggregated quips from some authoritative figures in the field of education. This visual is also available for free download from this link.

To be successful in professional development efforts we must plan backward, beginning with the student learning outcomes. ( Thomas R. Guskey,p. 10)Just as surgeons see observations and coaching as vital to improving their craft, so should teachers. ( Emily Dolci Grimm, Trent Kaufman, and Dave Doty, p. 24)We have to remember that teachers are professionals who use their classrooms as innovative laboratories and want to engage in authentic learning. (Kristen Swanson, p. 36)Teachers have a great deal of knowledge about their practice and their students that is incredibly valuable to other teachers. (Rebecca Van Tassell,p.76)When video recording is shared in a way that supports each educator's intrinsic desire to improve, it can be a powerful tool for rapid, significant improvement.  (Jim Knight, p.18)Educators must ensure that professional learning networks are more than a forum for sharing war stories or platform for promoting personal preferences about instruction. (Richard Dufour, p.30)When professional development fails to deliver genuine, face-to-face interactions with other people, educators feel cheated.  (John Settlage and Adam Johnst0n, p.67)
