Pinpoint marketing is about right-time experiences, as described by mobile industry analyst Maribel Lopez of Lopez Research. There is not only a time and place for the experience but taking input from the situation of the environment beyond one’s self, their relationship network, preferences and the overlap with the possibilities of vendor offerings in that same space. It then follows with that negotiation of all this contextual information from the individual buyers viewpoint, and the sellers. There is a world of proxy agents coming for each side, consummated by the final purchase decision of the buyer.

162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist

162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

A recent article in The Economist quotes Bill Gates as saying at least a dozen job types will be taken over by robots and automation in the next two decades, and these jobs cover both high-paying and low-skilled workers. Some of the positions he mentioned were commercial pilots, legal work, technical writing, telemarketers, accountants, retail workers, and real estate sales agents.


Indeed, as I’ve predicted before, by 2030 over 2 billion jobs will disappear. Again, this is not a doom and gloom prediction, rather a wakeup call for the world.

Whether you are a start up organization, a non-profit or enterprise business, community managers can contribute to the success of your company in many ways. For instance, a community manager can help with research and development at a lower cost and provide more accurate data than focus groups. They can also decrease the cost and response time for customer support by responding instantaneously on Twitter and reducing the use of call centers. By adding a community manager to the team, employee engagement and employee referrals can increase and save on recruiting costs.

Inventive Games That Teach Kids About Empathy and Social Skills | networking people and companies | Scoop.it
Play is nothing if not social. Games organize play, allowing us to wrangle it and use it to experiment with the world. When we play games, more often than not, it's us under the microscope. But there's a trend in design toward video games that build social skills and encourage players to reflect on themselves and their relationships. Here are a few games that do just that.

6 ways to rethink corporate knowledge sharing

The quest to effectively share knowledge within a company is one that still appears elusive. How do you keep on top of your competitors’ developments? How do you monitor articles that mention your brand? How do you make sure your teams get the information they need to make decisions and to learn? 

While we never had more ways to disseminate intelligence and knowledge within companies, it's easy to feel overwhelmed so that we're still often perceiving a lack of communication in the corporate world.

Overcoming the Fear of Being Wrong: 20 Ways To Help Your Students

Overcoming the Fear of Being Wrong: 20 Ways To Help Your Students | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

"Like cheating on a test, ignoring a friend’s phone call, wallowing in self-pity, or eating a pint of ice cream in one sitting, being wrong feels the worst when someone else is around to witness it. Unlike these things, being wrong is unjustly stigmatized as unacceptable. Everyone answers a question incorrectly now and then, but it’s the shame associated with being wrong, especially in front of others, that harms us more than the fault itself."

Many students are afraid to fail. Therefore they may be afraid to try new things or to ask questions. Too often we may hear the words "I don't know" because the student may feel embarrassed if the give an incorrect answer. This post discusses this topic in some detail before it provides 20 suggestions on ways to work with students to help them overcome the fear of being wrong. Five of the suggestions are below. Additional information on each is in the post as well as fifteen additional suggestions.

* Learning has two definitions and one is failure.

* Always respond to an answer with more than No."

* Turn wrong answers into a learning experience for all.

* The "wrong" answer is often more educational than the "right" answer.

* Remember that everyone is wrong sometimes.

The Digitization Megatrend

The Digitization Megatrend | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

By the year 2020, an entire generation, Generation C (for “connected”), will have grown up in a primarily digital world. Computers, the Internet, mobile phones, texting, social networking - all are second nature to members of this group. And their familiarity with technology, reliance on mobile communications, and desire to remain in contact with large networks of family members, friends, and business contacts will transform how we work and how we consume.


The phenomenon of digitization is reaching an inflection point. The effects of an increasingly digitized world are now reaching into every corner of our lives because three forces are powerfully reinforcing one another:


Consumer Pull: Consumers, and particularly Generation C, are already fully adapted to the digital environment. They naturally expect to be always connected, are willing to share personal data, and are more likely to trust referrals from their closest friends than well-known brands.Technology Push: Digital technology continues to expand its influence. The infrastructure backbone of the digital world is bringing affordable broadband to billions of consumers. In parallel, low-cost connected devices are being deployed in every industry, and cloud computing, and the vast information-processing machinery it requires, is developing quickly.Economic Benefits: The economic benefits to be captured through digitization are real. A wave of capital has poured into the new digitization technologies and companies, and the public markets reward early movers with unprecedented valuations

Generation C And The Future of Work

Generation C And The Future of Work | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Generation C and technology will transform business and the workplace.


Individuals will need to demonstrate adaptability and flexibility to rapidly changing work environments and become lifelong learners.


Also a focus on critical thinking skills, and a prominence on soft skills such as interpersonal skills and collaboration will be valued more than pure technical skills. A revised and redefined role for Human Resources in organizations will be critical, by developing a mindset to hire people for positions that do not even exist today, and helping us navigate a collaborative economy.

"Today while I was browsing through my Twitter feeds I came across this fabulous Bloom's Taxonomy wheel of apps shared by Anthony. If you still recall, some previous versions of this wheel have already been featured here in Bloom's Taxonomy for Teachers section .

These apps are supposed to help teachers and students better cultivate these different thinking levels in their use of iPad apps. And because the the visual is not hyperlinked, I went ahead and provided the links for each of these apps in the lists below. Enjoy"

WOW! I use freewrites in my face-to-face class because I don't believe a person can write without thinking. Yet, the document students are writing about is always distinct from the free write. In LMS discussion boards the situation is the same.

 

Do you remember how annotations use to appear in the margins of really good books? This is the same. The two-pane interface puts the document right in front of the student and lets them attach their comments to specific paragraphs, pictures or videos.  How perfect is that?
