Over the last few years, teaching people the Cynefin framework early on in engagements has really helped me have useful conversations with my clients about when different processes are appropriate....

When Daily Stress Gets in the Way of Life

When Daily Stress Gets in the Way of Life | Nourishing flourishing |
For some people, chronic anxiety is a way of life, leaving them awash in fears that prevent them from making moves that could enrich their lives.
Rae Jobst's insight:

This quote struck a note for me:


Many worriers think the solution is positive thinking. Dr. Chansky recommends something else: think “possible.”  “When we are stuck with negative thinking, we feel out of options, so to exit out of that we need to be reminded of all the options we do have,” she writes in her book.


This links with Appreciative Inquiry - e.g. if something were to work, what might that be....

How granular can learning go? Very, says George Siemens, who writes:


I’ll take it a few steps further: in the near future, all learning will be boundary-less. All learning content will be computational, not contrived or prestructured. All learning will be granular, with coherence formed by individual learners. Contrived systems, such as teaching, curriculum, content, accreditation, will be replaced, or at minimum, by models based on complexity and emergence (with a bit of chaos thrown in for good measure). Perhaps it will be something like, and excuse the cheesy name, learnometer. Technical systems will become another node in our overall cognitive systems. Call it embodied cognition. Or distributed cognition. Or appeal to Latour’s emphasis that technical nodes in knowledge system can be non-human and actually be seen as equal to human nodes. I’ve used the term connectivism to describe this. Others have emphasized networked knowledge and combinatorial creativity.


The terminology doesn’t really matter.


The big idea is that learning and knowledge are networked, not sequential and hierarchical. Systems that foster learning, especially in periods of complexity and continual changes to the human knowledge base, must be aligned with this networked model. In the short term, hierarchical and structured models may still succeed. In the long term, and I’m thinking in terms of a decade or so, learning systems must be modelled on the attributes of networked information, reflect end user control, take advantage of connective/collective social activity, treat technical systems as co-sensemaking agents to human cognition, make use of data in automated and guided decision making, and serve the creative and innovation needs of a society (actually, human race) facing big problems.

Vittle lets you quickly capture any idea, and share them with anyone to view on their own time.

Vittle works like a magic whiteboard that records what you write and say:

Annotate and sketch using the ultra-smooth ink of our proprietary Inkflow Engine,Resize and move anything around the page,Zoom in to focus on key points,Visually navigate through even complex topics.

Use Vittle to build a video library on any subject. It is also a powerful tool for collaborating across time and space with any number of people.

Looks like a good idea. Especially since you become the owner of the work and it is not stored on a third party site...

Vicki Mast's curator insight, September 13, 2013 11:24 AM

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price. You can move & resize your drawn objects, zoom in/out, etc. If you're working on creating "flipped classroom" videos, or how-to tutorials this may be what you need. Check out their website and user guide for the details.

Useful for explaining concepts in a visually interesting way.

How to Treat Workplace Stress

How to Treat Workplace Stress | Nourishing flourishing |
Workplace stress can be addressed by making small changes in daily work situations, and without giving up professional goals.
Rae Jobst's insight:

I was looking at for a quick ten point plan - and found rather that you have to read and reflect to find the suggested strategies - a more mindful approach :-)
