Model Thinking

Model Thinking | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

Well, I will try this one... It sounds interesting and useful...It's from the Univerity of Michigan. Besides the professor teaching it says.. I will will learn how to think with models and use them to make sense of the complex world around us.

 

Model Thinking

Scott E. Page

 

Why do models make us better thinkers?

Models help us to better organize information - to make sense of that fire hose or hairball of data (choose your metaphor) available on the Internet. Models improve our abilities to make accurate forecasts. They help us make better decisions and adopt more effective strategies. They even can improve our ability to design institutions and procedures.

 

In this class, I present a starter kit of models:

 

*  models of tipping points.

*  models explain the wisdom of crowds,

*  models that show why some countries are rich and some are poor,

*  and models that help unpack the strategic decisions of firm and politicians.

 

The models covered in this class provide a foundation for future social science classes, whether they be in economics, political science, business, or sociology. Mastering this material will give you a huge leg up in advanced courses.

 

I specially like this one..... "They also help you in life."

3D for PD: Second Life Gets a Second Chance

3D for PD: Second Life Gets a Second Chance | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

Alina Padilla-Miller (@oregonwritIng) escribe en el blog de @Edutopía sobre el uso de Second Life en formación.

Su artículo comienza con una reflexión sobre este mundo virtual que parecía destinado a "triunfar". Alina cree que la clave es que se entra en Second Life a probar, sin un propósito y acaba resultando aburrido y decepcionante.

Pero con un buen propósito la cosa cambia. Y nos cuenta un proyecto en el que ha participado en Oregon, DIRECT, con profesores de varias escuelas locales que interactuaban, debatían y compartían en un espacio virtual de esta "segunda vida".

Con un objetivo claro, Sí!

9 Ways to Improve the Signal to Noise Ratio on Twitter | Brian Solis

9 Ways to Improve the Signal to Noise Ratio on Twitter | Brian Solis | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"The feeling the overload of information is very real and a reflection of our inability to pull the levers necessary to decrease noise and improve signal. Doing so, requires some very blatant actions that don’t simply reduce the volume of the information we don’t care to see as often, it requires disconnecting from human beings. Whether we’re severing ties with individuals or those representing an organization we once supported, it’s emotional.

 

Think about why you Tweet or update your status. It’s part self-expression, part therapy, part fulfilling, and of course, part egocentric.

 

We are as guilty by our inaction as others are for their action. And at the same time, we are also guilty of contributing to the noise. The truth is that it’s easier to blame others than hold up a digital mirror.

 

Here are 9 Ways to Improve the Signal to Noise Ratio in Social Networks:

 

1. News No Longer Breaks, it Tweets:

Old news is no news. Twitter places emphasis on real-time information.

 

2. Add Perspective:

Opinions in social media tend to spark dialogue. So, add an opinion, a pertinent fact or move the conversation forward rather than simply sending your update or hitting Like or Retweet.

 

3. K.I.S.S.:

I often say, in brevity there’s clarity. Of course, it’s easier said than done. Studies show that followers appreciate conciseness. Keep it short.

 

4. Don’t #geekout with @’s and #Syntax LOL <-This!:

It’s pretty easy to geek out on Twitter…especially when using 140 characters is already too complicated (kidding). Often we’re ompelled to overuse Twitter syntax such as #hashtags, @mentions, code, and abbreviations.

 

5. Strengthen Your Inner Voice:

For some reason, Twitter debilitates our ability to practice self restraint and therefore we are somehow inspired to express nonessential experiences.

 

6. Context is King:

Think about each Tweet or update as contributing to an experience or image that you want others to see of you or of your perspective.

 

7. If You Don’t Have Anything Good to Say…:

 

8. Introduce Brain Teasers:

Savvy marketers, producers, and editors alike figured out long ago that building anticipation creates an appetite before an official release. Intrigue your followers.

 

9. Brands are People Too:

The study found that individuals or businesses with a public persona should pay particular attention to how their status updates lend to the brand they wish to portray. Sounds incredibly commonsensical, but it’s not as it ties to several of the bullets above.
