Making the Most of Africa's Culture and Creativity

Making the Most of Africa's Culture and Creativity | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

A growing body of research indicates that Africa's culture is a largely untapped resource that could give its economic development a welcome fillip. Artistic and cultural activity is also proving a driver of democratisation and can help prevent violent conflict.

R Gopalakrishnan: Creativity from chaos | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Neurons get activated by diversity, and by a change in the routine of activity and thinking. Wrestling with an opinion different from your own, bending the mind to see an opposite view, going away for a holiday, taking a long walk, reading an unconnected book, listening to music, or even sleeping over a problem - all these get the neurons firing and colliding to provide new combinations of thoughts.

Learning, innovation, creativity happen on the boundaries of chaos and order. When we learn, it is bringing order, in a sense, to the unknown and, at the same, being aware that learning is fluid and impermanent.

I will definitely have some feedback after reviewing these tools to create online assessments. Creating assessments is an important first step because you don't give the prescription on how to fix a business before you've figured out what the problem are-that's why you begin with the assessments- they become your base starting point of reference. This article has tools to help you create those online assessments.Let me know which are your favorite tools.

Content Curation: 10 Tips To Help You Curate Ethically

Content Curation: 10 Tips To Help You Curate Ethically | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Excerpt from the article by Pawan Deshpande and published on Content Marketing Institute:
"Many content curators are still unsure about what constitutes ethical curation, and how they can share third-party content without running afoul of copyright laws.
Here’s our 10-step checklist to help you curate ethically and effectively.

1. Draw from a variety of sources;
2. Prominently link to the original source;
3. Avoid “nofollow” links;
4. Quote sparingly;
5. Insert your own point of view;
6. Fill in the gaps;
7. Use thumbnail images;
8. Give readers the option to close an iFrame or share bar;
9. Add a new title;
10. Claim Google authorship, as appropriate..."

Each step is analyzed with more information. Read full original article here:

This post from Gwen Moran is a good way to start the week: these 5 actions might earn us the thought leader status indeed. But let's forget the status for a while: there are real, deep human values here:


  1. Face challenges
  2. Win trust

In Defense of Polymaths

In Defense of Polymaths | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Polymath is one of those words more likely to show up on the SAT than in everyday conversation. But the reason we don’t use the word much these days has less to do with vocabulary than it has to do with practicality: there aren’t a lot of polymaths around anymore.


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen

Lynnette Van Dyke's curator insight, November 10, 2013 4:29 PM

In case you don’t have your pocket dictionary handy, a polymath is a person with a wide range of knowledge or learning. Think people like Leonardo da Vinci (artist and helicopter designer),Benjamin Franklin (founding father, inventor, and all-around lady-killer), Paul Robeson (scholar, athlete, actor, and civil rights activist), and even Steve Jobs (engineer, businessman extraordinaire, and marketing mastermind).

Still, while we admire the select “geniuses” that can do it all, we tend to disparage the regular folk who attempt to spread their knowledge around a little. If they are so foolish as to dabble instead of devoting themselves to a single calling, those unfortunates sometimes earn the time-dishonored label of “Jack of all trades, master of none.”
