Teachers Guide to The 21st Century Learning Model : Connected Learning

Teachers Guide to The 21st Century Learning Model : Connected Learning | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Why connected learning

 

Connected learning is a necessity in this digital age. More and more of our students learning, attention, and access to information is taking place outside of classrooms and through online networks and exchanges. Connected learning, however, can help them cultivate the skills necessary for fulfilling adult lives and careers and that formal instruction alone could not afford.

Permaliv: Four Scenarios for the Inevitable P2P Future

Permaliv: Four Scenarios for the Inevitable P2P Future | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it
P2P and networked technologies are here to stay, are expanding, and will become the dominant technological format. Yet, that doesn’t mean at all that the future is a foregone conclusion. Around these technologies we will see political and social struggles that will involve ownership and governance (control), and also their mobilization by social forces having their own worldviews, interests and agenda.

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it
Using Content Curation To Find New Customers.

 

Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.

 

As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites. Many have tried blogging to drive traffic to their website and due to a shortage of hours in a day they end up dropping the blog or hiring ghost writers to develop content for the site. We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.

 

Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.

 

Below are examples on how Scoop.it can drive traffic and help to show the world, yes the world that your business knows your market.

 

In this article are 3 areas that when done correctly can drive new traffic to your business or brand.

 

*** If you would like help setting up a Scoop.it traffic generator for your company. Contact Brian at 1-888-535-9139 or Email Me ideas@marketinghits.com ***

A Map To Define Your Value Proposition: The Customer-Value Canvas

A Map To Define Your Value Proposition: The Customer-Value Canvas | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Alexander Osterwalder has just published the prototype concept of a new tool to be called the Customer Value Canvas. A perfect complement to the Business Model Canvas he is about to release. (reserve your seat here)

 

The Customer Value Canvas is a simple editable template which facilitates your job of mapping and identifying some key factors in your business model:

 

a) On the customer side:

 

- the need - job to be done - problem to be solved that your customer has

 

- the specific pains he has

 

- and the specific gains he is looking for

 

+

 

b) On your side (the business):

 

- the value proposition - product/service

 

- the specific pains it alleviates

 

- the specific gains it brings

 

 

I find this schematization a perfect match to support any lean and innovative approach to business building especially in the online world.

 

I highly recommend this article which illustrates step by step the concept and use of this useful model-canvas.

 

Very useful. 9/10

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse

e" in e-Learning Vanishing? | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Let's assume that all learning - as we go forward - will use a MIX of on-demand and live content, context and collaboration. Some will be highly designed and some will be real-time. Some will be digitally connected and some will be face to face. At Learning 2012, we will chatting about the changing language of learning. From career paths, to college programs to labeling our learning offerings - it is time to shift the use of the "e" as electronic and instead see the embedded "e" in Learning to mean:

 

Everywhere.

Everyone.

Evolving.

Effective.

Efficient.

Everytime.

Embedded.

Engaging.

Future of learning: obsolescence of knowledge, return to real teaching

Future of learning: obsolescence of knowledge, return to real teaching | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it
Leading entrepreneurs and thought leaders provide a look at the future of education in a short documentary from Ericsson. It discusses how technology is changing the way students learn as well as what it means to learn and teach in a connected era.

...

The future of learning is far more than new devices, digital content and online classrooms. It means potentially rewritten relationships between students and information, teachers and instruction, and schools and society.

In a short documentary released Tuesday, telecom giant Ericsson pulls together observations from leading voices in education technology and entrepreneurship to give a high-level snapshot of what the future of education could look like and how technology is leading it there.

The 20-minute film, called the Future of Learning, which is part of the company’s ongoing Networked Society project, is particularly timely given the momentum behind online education platforms like Khan Academy and Coursera, adaptive learning technology from Knewton and the transition to digital textbooks.

Entrepreneurship Becoming Primary Source of SocioEconomic Value

Entrepreneurship Becoming Primary Source of SocioEconomic Value | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

From the article intro: "The slow decline of industrial manufacturing in developed nations and recent failures of financial capitalism across the globe have sent us searching for a new model of economic growth."

 

From the HBR newsroom: "The essay describes how entrepreneurship is increasingly becoming the world's primary source of socioeconomic value creation and how a new class of entrepreneurship, which the Startup Genome is calling Transformational Entrepreneurship, is taking center stage by synthesizing the scalable tools of Technology Entrepreneurship with the world-centric value system of Social Entrepreneurship.

 

Transformational Entrepreneurship also represents the guiding philosophy behind the Startup Genome."

 

Insightful. 8/10

A Quality Scorecard for the Administration of Online Education Programs | The Sloan Consortium | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

This scorecard is for measuring and quantifying elements of quality within online education programs in higher education. It is an easy-to-use tool for online administrators for program evaluation. By evaluating each of the respective quality indicators within the established categories, an online administrator can determine strengths and weaknesses of their program. The identification of the weaknesses can be used to support program improvement and strategic planning initiatives. The scorecard could also be used to demonstrate to accrediting bodies, elements of quality within the program as well as an overall level of quality.
