Margye Reeves Solomon's curator insight, May 28, 2015 12:17 PM

"Even when learning is valued, how can leaders find time to do it? I've worked in organizations where professionals and managers go 10 years or more without participating in development programs. Obviously, this isn't acceptable. But what can we do?"


My response:

1) See the learning culture as a corporate asset

2) Focus content on what makes sense strategically - supports the business needs of the company

3) Move L&D programs into cloud-based mobile delivery platforms

Les Howard's curator insight, October 3, 2014 9:52 AM

Great quote from article by Seth Godin: 

If you look at the fact that we process 20 or 30 kids at a time in a batch just like in the factory.  If you fail 3rd grade we hold you back and reprocess you.  All matching the way the factory works.  We built it on purpose and it was really useful for its function but we don’t have a shortage of factory workers anymore.” Seth Godin

Seth says that “there’s a big difference between access to information and school.  They used to be the same thing.  Information is now available online to anyone who has access and wants it.”

An interview with Ian MacFarlane - MacFarlane, Ian | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

So I would suggest that the idea of a Teacher is an outmoded idea from a past age. What we need now is for Sharers, people who will share what they have learned with others, without bringing their ego into it and expecting to be seen as “special” or “advanced” and accorded a special status as a “Teacher”. The Work needs to become more democratic and less autocratic or heirarchical.

preparing for 2020 | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We cannot look at the 2020 workplace merely from the perspective of what will be different from today, as if these five years will pass in splendid isolation. How we think of work has changed over the millennia and one major factor has been our communications technologies. When communication changes, work does too, as well as our understanding of what is knowledge, and what it means to be knowledgeable.

STIGMERGIC LEARNING AND GLOBAL GUERRILLAS - Global Guerrillas

STIGMERGIC LEARNING AND GLOBAL GUERRILLAS - Global Guerrillas | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Stigmergy is a term used in biology (from the work of french biologist Pierre-Paul Grasse) to describe environmental mechanisms for coordinating the work of independent actors (for example, ants use pheromones to create trails and people use weblog links to establish information paths, for others to follow). The term is derived from the greek words stigma ("sign") and ergon ("to act"). Stigmergy can be used as a mechanism to understand underlying patterns in swarming activity. As such, it can be applied to the understanding of swarming attacks by diverse bands of global guerrilla. The stigmergic information system that operates in Iraq is the bazaar of violence. A knowledge of stigmergy is a key to understanding how these groups learn.

Commons-Based Peer-Production: A New Way of Learning | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The Internet and with it the rise of social networks have enabled a radically innovative way of producing knowledge-related goods. Software can now be jointly written by thousands of developers as the operating system ‘Linux’ shows. The encyclopedia Wikipedia is updated by roughly 1.7 million contributors worldwide. Law professor Yochai Benkler has coined the term “commons-based peer-production” to describe this development. He has defined some of the characteristics intrinsic to this phenomenon.

Connected Learning: The Power Of Social Learning Models

Connected Learning: The Power Of Social Learning Models | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

DML’s model is similar in philosophy, underscoring the role of interdependence. Called Connected Learning, the model is a response to changing face of culture as it relates to social and digital media. As technology evolves at breakneck speed, models that account for this kind of change are few and far between. Without review and revision of how and where students learn, the response is less than ideal: either blind adoption of technology, awkward adoption, or no adoption at all.

David Week's curator insight, August 5, 2014 8:06 AM

In a knowledge economy, the city function is learning.

AleksBlumentals's curator insight, August 5, 2014 9:13 AM

Cities are like water, while they perform, we don't notice how their lack is affecting us. Yet if too many are free riders, and instead of leaders all is delegated to administrators, this "commons" is depleted. Then, it no longer is a viable container or scaffold for growth.


The way this happens is quite rapid as those individuals with a fungible capacity emigrate, and the structure left looks more and more like a Swiss Cheese full of holes. As these specialized capacities find jobs elsewhere, the town of older people looses much of its adaptive capability.

On the other hand, if the town can let go of grand schemes, it may in this slowing down, uncover new answers of global relevance. But it will not do so while it has bosses and classes living as if nothing is going on.
