Carla Casilli: Mozilla Open Badges: building trust networks, creating value | MidMarket Place | Scoop.it

"In the last few posts we have discussed ways in which badge systems can be segmented, considered, or categorized within existing social structures. And I have hinted at the sociocultural infrastructure necessary for badges to become useful and effective, social, professional, and personal currencies. This concept of currency stems from the notion of badges as elements of trust networks. They may be trust networks that exist presently but in this post, I suggest that badges may help to engender the creation of dynamic new trust networks."

This is the second perspective on Maslow's hierarchy I have seen in the past few weeks.  As we try to make learning more rigorous and more inclusive for all students the importance of meeting student needs in a variety of ways is very important.  This must include Social/emotional as well as technological.

WGU's mentor-supported, competency-based, online learning model is a model of Stage 3 learning. 

Nichelle Plivelic's comment, March 6, 4:57 AM
There are three main stages to personalized learning, which involves the teacher figuring out how each student learns individually and establishing goals for the students. A teacher can change the physical layout if this helps(when working with children who are easily distracted, such as those with ADHD or autism, it's best to get rid of as many distractions as possible). The student will learn at their own pace in whatever way is the most effective.

Harold Jarche comenta el enfoque a la gestión del conocimiento de una empresa, Domino Pizza.

 

Para conseguir que el aprendizaje esté integrado en el flujo del trabajo hay que identificar a dos grupos de personas: los "conectores" y los "expertos".

 

Los conectores son capaces de generar relaciones e interactuar, se desenvuelven bien en las redes sociales, son capaces de curar contenidos...

 

Los expertos son personas con muchos conocimiento sobre temas clave para la organización pero que no siempre saben compartir, sintetizar o explicar...

 

La identificación y conexión entre conectores y expertos es una buena estrategia para la gestión del conocimiento en la organización.

 

Genial!!!!!

Today’s managers face a difficult and unprecedented challenge: The world is changing much faster than their organizations. Every industry, without exception, has been overtaken by an accelerating pace of change that shows no signs of letting up any time soon. In a world where change is constant, it’s not surprising that many managers feel overwhelmed by what appears to be a completely unmanageable state of affairs.

Ferananda's curator insight, March 25, 5:30 PM

Reading this pdf was very inspiring to bring words into the new stories that will allow us to transform one of the major systems that will affect all the rest: our economy. 

 

David Korten says:

 

Any discussion of a New Economy properly begins
with the obvious truth: Without nature, there are no
people. The Living Universe and Earth Community
provide the underlying frame for the New Story for a
New Economy.

 

He carefully goes through morals and science and the main stories and narratives that have influenced the design of our social systems. He then tells the story of 'the Living Universe' and the interconnectedness, inter-relatedness of all which integrates the one and the many, agency and communion, sovereignty and accountability.  Beautiful and essential work.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | MidMarket Place | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.

LinkedIn Company Pages: the untapped opportunity for SMBs

Small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) massively use social media as a digital marketing tactic. But at Scoop.it we wanted to understand: how do they use social media? What are their key opportunities? 


Via Guillaume Decugis
more...
Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, November 19, 2013 12:19 PM

People are 50% more likely to purchase from a company they interact with on LinkedIn. While Facebook pages have been the priority to a lot of companies, LinkedIn is a great way to generate demand and leads through content - especially for B2B marketers.


This is a study on what's missing to SMBs to achieve that and how to fix the content problems they have in an efficient way.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, November 20, 2013 12:17 PM

While some people say content is king, more and more are also saying distribution is queen (and some say she actually wears the pants). The study of more than 3,000 US SMBs that we led at Scoop.it made us realize how much ignored some distribution opportunities are for businesses that don't have huge budgets and need to be focused. 


When you already struggle to maintain and update a Facebook page and a Twitter account, how can you have time for LinkedIn, Google+ etc...? 


A lot of people will recommend to carefully think your strategy and decide which social network is good for you. This is great advice but how can you know for sure before trying it out?


I think there's another approach to this. A #leancontent approach which consists of simplifying the ROI equation by making the investment minimal. By integration on content curation in your content mix and by using cross-posting techniques (such as what we just enabled in Scoop.it with LinkedIn Company Pages), you can effectively test whether such or such social network destination works out. 


And who knows? You might discover you not only have to be everywhere but also that you can be.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 26, 10:27 AM

One of the timeless principles is making connections. That explains connectivism as an extension of constructivism rather than a stand alone theory. We need to connect to people, to the subjects, and the world as if they were living. That is what motivates us and fuels the learning.
