8 Ideas That Will Break It Once And For All

8 Ideas That Will Break It Once And For All | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

As education changes, it depends primarily on internal catalysts for that change. That is, the “things” that change it are on the “inside” of that system itself, most notably data, assessment, PLCs, and running a distant fourth, technology. It’s interesting that technology is among the least impacting “agents of change” in the classroom.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 11, 12:16 PM

I read this skeptically and some of the language is problematic. For example, calling students clients is part of a broader economic agenda which has no business in School. Yet, there is some merit to some of the points. For example, using digital technologies to free up teaching for the more human, humane, and relational aspects of their work is important. This is not using digital technologies as an end all, but reflecting on the context of use.

Jo Blannin - The Know Tech Teacher's curator insight, September 11, 10:06 PM

This is a really challenging article that gives 8 ways that education will change - and is already beginning to change.

The idea that teachers' roles must change is imperative - we no longer have the luxury of a four year degree and thats it, with maybe a day of PD here and then. 

It's a brave new world people! How exciting!

Parents, if your children are very young, you might want to step back and give it some consideration. It's inevitable imho.

Global Operations Study: Big Data Analytics in Supply Chain - Accenture | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Find out how big data analytics can positively impact a company’s overall operating and financial performance.  A recent Accenture survey reveals that while most companies have high expectations from big data analytics in their supply chain, many have had difficulty adopting it. We surveyed more than 1,000 senior executives from large global companies to get their thoughts on the importance of big data analytics in their supply chain, the progress they have made in adopting it and how they are benefiting from its use.

Clik Here>>>>>>>>>> http://mrdeni.com/?movie=the+skeleton+twins#

 

"The Skeleton Twins" is a dark moments, but never brooding. Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig star in this complex history of dizygotic twins with a shared past, they have tried to leave behind. Maggie (Wiig) is a dentist in the city of New York Upstate and his twin brother, Milo (Hader) is an actress in Los Angeles. Even if they have not spoken to each other for almost ten years, it may be something that the twins be telepathically connected. Each of them decides to commit suicide, but the eerie thing is that they make this decision simultaneously on opposite sides of the country.

What is the solution to come up with Maggie when he goes to save her brother? New York is beautiful in the fall, so that he should come home, and stay with him while he sorted things out - return to the scene of the crime as it was. It is no wonder that they in their lives outside of the screen, Wiig and Hader sparkle day and night chemistry "Skeleton Twins".

Director Craig Johnson led the movie-term Munich Film Festival and has remained to answer questions each screening. One of the better parts of smaller film festivals is unintentional intimacy. They neglect to ask the same question after the official Q & A, but then you find yourself, the following next leader of the party evening.Johnson gets impressive performances from the main characters, and the story is very compelling. Fortunately not play the melodrama, the actors are serious when necessary, but can not help themselves break the tension moment of frivolity. Luke Wilson plays Maggie hopelessly cheerful man and his straight man schtick, in more ways than one, to bring the two main characters.

There is a lip-synching scene during an emotional moment that you will not soon forget. Johnson was glad to a list of all the 80's music, he revisited, if you find the perfect track for this scene. Song of the manuscript, which was ultimately not used, it was Wilson Phillips' "Hold On", and the director said a particularly amusing anecdote about having to scrap the plan when my friend broke the news that the exact same Song played a key role in the plot of the very popular movie "Bridesmaids", another film with Kristen Wiig.

The Industries Plagued by the Most Uncertainty

The Industries Plagued by the Most Uncertainty | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

It’s a cliché to say that the world is more uncertain than ever before, but few realize just how much uncertainty has increased over the past 50 years. New technologies and new competitors are hitting the market at an unprecedented rate.  Although uncertainty is accelerating, it isn’t affecting all industries the same way. That’s because there are two primary types of uncertainty — demand uncertainty (will customers buy your product?) and technological uncertainty (can we make a desirable solution?) — and how much uncertainty your industry faces depends on the interaction of the two.

I agree that school is not an industry; however, education is influenced by industry. K-12 education may be less impacted by industrial uncertainty, but higher education is likely to feel those repercussions. How higher education--administrators and faculty--responds should matter to students and alumni.

Aligning strategy with culture

Aligning strategy with culture | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Whether the strategic focus is to respond swiftly to customer needs or to achieve manufacturing excellence, organisational culture is an important enabler in achieving business success. There is little consensus, however, on what culture actually means. In our view, culture is what beliefs and values people share. It is the glue which holds people together and determines how they respond or behave. Culture serves as a source of competitive advantage because of this perspective.

Jonas Schlyter's curator insight, September 9, 4:56 PM

You have to understand the importance of culture to gain competitive advantages, and you must align the culture with your strategy. And, you must have in mind that the culture is not tangible, except for the artifacts which are results of the influence of all key elements (e.g. strategy, people, processes, sturcture and rewards) of an organization and its environment.

 

By making changes in the key elements you can influence changes in the culture. But first I recommend you to understand what culture you have and want culture you want. With help by models describing different cultures you can get support and inspiration when analyzing the current culture and defining a new culture vision. Spiral Dynamics is an interesting and dynamic model of human development and development of social network, society or company.

 

Keep also in mind that

1. Organizational culture is optimized only when the key elements are aligned and cooperate to influence to desired behaviour of its members

2. Influencing a culture is a process that takes time and makes demand on distinct and consistent leadership

In this edition of New Horizons, we examine how the US health care system is moving from volume to value. n the consumer world, value is a familiar concept. Consumers tend to equate good value with products of the highest quality for the lowest price. When applied to health care, however, value is more complex, as the consumer — from patients and providers to payers and purchasers, and the product — patient outcomes, can vary widely. According to the Institute of Medicine (IOM), an organization that has studied the issue closely, value is in the eye of the beholder, representing different things to different stakeholders:
