An interesting revvelation on the human brain's capacity to handle social networks. Not so sure this applies to everyone I know :-)

Potential of Social Network Analysis in Intelligence (Wheaton/Ritchie)

Potential of Social Network Analysis in Intelligence (Wheaton/Ritchie) | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Social Network Analysis, as an analytic method, has inarguable applicability to the field of intelligence and is progressively reshaping the analytic landscape in terms of how analysts understand networks. For example, analysts currently use SNA to identify key people in an organization or social network, develop a strategic agent network, identify new agents and simulate information flows through a network.The most obvious use of SNA is its ability to identify key actors and entities within a network. Centrality measures within a network are means for measuring a node’s relative importance within the network. [3] It is well-accepted that “the ability to measure centrality in social networks has been a particularly useful development in social network analysis.”   What is more interesting, however, is the number of centrality measures that social network analysts use to reveal different things about how key actors interact within a network.

This is a must read!  Technology can hurt us more than it helps if you dont use it responsibly.  Your thoughts?

A pedagogy of abundance or a pedagogy to support human beings?

A pedagogy of abundance or a pedagogy to support human beings? | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

The research shows that it is possible to move from a pedagogy of abundance to a pedagogy that supports human beings in their learning through the active creation of resources and learning places by both learners and course facilitators. This pedagogy is based on the building of connections, collaborations, and the exchange of resources between people, the building of a community of learners, and the harnessing of information flows on networks.

Data Flow Diagram in PowerPoint | PowerPoint Presentation | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

A data flow diagram is a visual representation of the flow of data in an information system. Data flows are an important visualization tool to model processes. You can use Data Flows to create an overview of the system which can later be elaborated just like a modern mind map diagram, or you can also use DFD to make awesome designs and diagrams for your presentations in PowerPoint or a structured design of data processing.

The Key To Great Feedback? Praise the Process, Not the Person

The Key To Great Feedback? Praise the Process, Not the Person | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Even with the best intentions, feedback can easily backfire. The praise you give doesn’t lead to greater confidence. Your expert advice seems to take the wind right out of his sails. You decide to “go easy” on her, only to find her growing more anxious by the minute. And you are far from alone if you’ve had a hard time figuring out why.


Fortunately, scientific studies of motivation have identified clear, principled reasons why some types of feedback work, and others don’t. It is neither mysterious nor random. If you’ve gotten it wrong in the past (and who hasn’t?), then you can do a better job giving feedback from now on by sticking to a few simple rules.

The same advice we give teachers about feedback to their students and developing a growth mindset applies to our feedback for staff.

Siti Noraisha Mohamed Senin's curator insight, February 25, 2014 9:45 AM

Providing feedback to students could help them realise their strengths and faults. All praise and no constructive feedback might backfire on the learning progress of the students as they do not know what exactly went well or otherwise.

Bees decrease food intake, live longer when given compound found in red wine

Bees decrease food intake, live longer when given compound found in red wine | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

The idea that drinking red wine may provide health benefits – or possibly even extend your life – is an appealing thought for many people. Now, there may be added attraction. Researchers have found that when given resveratrol, a compound found in red wine, bees consume less food.

 

Previous scientific studies on resveratrol show that it lengthens the lifespan of diverse organisms ranging from unicellular yeast to fruit flies and mice. Since bees are social animals like humans, a team of scientists from Arizona State University, the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, and Harvard Medical School, decided to test the effects of the chemical on the honey bee.

 

In a series of experiments published in the journal Aging, the scientists tested the effects of resveratrol on the lifespan, learning ability, and food perception in honey bees.

 

Their research has confirmed that not only does this compound extend the lifespan of honey bees by 33 to 38 percent, it also changes the decisions that bees make about food by triggering a “moderation effect” when they eat.
