The Troubling Flaws In How We Select Experts

The Troubling Flaws In How We Select Experts | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it

Organizations are constantly scouring the earth for the talent or perfect expert that will provide the fresh edge and perspective needed to overcome the challenging obstacles that stand in their way to the top. In their pursuit of excellence however, you may be shocked to learn the criteria they use to define credibility and expertise may be severely flawed.

In the words of Mark Twain, “An expert is an ordinary fellow from another town.”

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, July 28, 2014 10:35 AM

Sadly, it's human nature to overlook the talent nearest you and think an outsider can save the day.  


Why are recommendations perceived as bad ideas when suggested by employees, but suddenly brilliant when a lesser known individual suggests the same thing?


Why are these outsiders perceived to be more credible?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 28, 2014 7:04 PM

I always wondered how it was done. It certainly does not make much sense in School who is promoted and privileged.

Christine Capra's curator insight, July 31, 2014 4:53 PM

I think this also has to do with our delusional search for perfection.

 

The better we know one another, the more 'flaw's we see - we can only imagine getting something close to our ideal with the unknown.

 

And we're a culture that prefers the illusion of the ideal over the value in reality. 

 

So we'll choose an infinite stream of expensive 'honeymoon' phases to the grit of committing to the flawed known. In all kinds of realms. . .

 

To our detriment - imho.

Your Brain on Multitasking

Your Brain on Multitasking | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
Our brains on multitasking aren't nearly as good as we think they are. Let's say you're working on an activity over here, on the right side of the brain, and suddenly you're trying to multitask another activity, like talking on the phone.

You're not actually doing both activities at the same time, in fact, you're now diverting your attention from one part of your brain to another part of your brain. That takes time, that takes resources, that takes brain cells.

What happens on the other side of the brain is that you're starting a brand new activity, so in fact you're probably slower and not nearly as good at doing both activities at the same time.

We can shift our focus really fast, sometimes it takes just a 10th of a second. But the time doesn't matter as much as the bandwidth the brain requires to move back and forth. Now that might affect your performance, and might also affect the quality of the work that you finally produce.

Take an everyday activity like driving. When you look at the MRI of someone who is in driving mode, see how much of their brain is activating there? Now if you just layer in one more thing—if person is listening while they are driving—and all of a sudden the amount of attention, the amount of brain bandwidth going toward driving decreases by about 37%. So you're not multi-tasking, you've in fact reduced the amount of attention you're now paying to your driving.

How Memory, Focus and Good Teaching Can Work Together to Help Kids Learn

How Memory, Focus and Good Teaching Can Work Together to Help Kids Learn | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
Spend more time teaching learning skills. Klemm recommends memory tricks like mnemonic devices, and visualizing ideas as complex images, to help students expand their working memory. “If they knew these things, they wouldn’t have to work so hard and school might even become fun,” Klemm said. “Once students start reflecting and become more self-aware, they have the opportunity to become better students.”

“Working memory gets overloaded,” Kleem said. “Most people can only hold four independent ideas in working memory.” But if images are used to represent a constellation of ideas, people can remember much more. Words are hard to remember, but images stick with people. “It’s like a zip file,” Klemm said. “This is a way to get your working memory to carry more.”
