Though not critical to my project. I thought important that I know how the schooling has changed and how it has been enforced through the internet. 

Damon Ing's curator insight, July 3, 12:16 AM
This article discusses in detail the alternatives to the traditional classroom. It offers a different variety of ideas that could be used to enhance the traditional distance education model. It is interesting to see that flexibility is one of the strongest benefits to distance learning and has become very popular in other countries. Read on to see the authors opinion on some very important topics.

"Las sociedades democráticas reclaman con toda razón un mayor y más fácil acceso a la información. Pero la abundancia de datos no garantiza vigilancia democrática; para ello hace falta, además, movilizar comunidades de intérpretes capaces de darles un contexto, un sentido y una valoración crítica. Separar lo esencial de lo anecdótico, analizar y situar en una perspectiva adecuada los datos exige mediadores que dispongan de tiempo y competencias cognitivas. Los partidos políticos son un instrumento imprescindible para reducir esa complejidad. En este trabajo de interpretación de la realidad también son inevitables los periodistas, cuyo trabajo no va a ser superfluo en la era de internet sino todo lo contrario. Los periodistas están llamados a jugar un papel importante en esta mediación cognitiva para interesar a la gente, animar el debate público y descifrar la complejidad del mundo (Rosanvallon, 2008, pág. 342). Pero estoy defendiendo la necesidad cognitiva del sistema político y de los medios de comunicación y no a sus representantes que, como todos, también son manifiestamente mejorables."

Nursing Is Storytelling

Nursing Is Storytelling | Scoop.it ÉleÉne | Scoop.it

"There’s a lot of buzz around the action of “storytelling.” It’s a trendy term.

 

Some marketers hijack storytelling as the art nouveau of their work. I suppose that’s fine, but it still rings generic.

 

 

Nurses, we live storytelling. Our work is storytelling. The intimacy in the care we provide is like a Bob Dylan song because storytelling doesn’t have to be the feel-good, inspire-the-world marketing scheme. It’s a lived life. Storytelling—good storytelling—encompasses the grit and the grime. It is the real, and yes, sometimes it is happy, but sometimes it’s about suffering and pain and a mixture of all those things."

Interesting reading. It make me see the object in a complete new light. Inspiring.

streetsmartprof's curator insight, May 10, 2013 9:11 AM

It is interesting as a profession nurses are trained to care for the patient. Part of the original oath was: "devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care". http://www.nursegroups.com/nightingale-pledge%3A-nursing-ethics

 

Why do most people trust nurses? Think about why this is in your own mind. Is it the focus on caring for the patient?

 

Now turn around and view the training and education used to bring your own employees up to speed on "how to care" for your customers.

 

Have their lips been loaded with "fairy tales" of how great the company is. Or do they know the "lessons learned", the "war stories" of the past?

 

Most people will agree there is no such thing as a perfect life, or a perfect company. Being able to tell life lessons to customers about helping others may just move the needle on their experience when things have gone south.

 

It works for nurses to offer up hope in times of need by telling us about others who have gotten through what it is we are about to face. Offering up war stories of the past on how you have helped other customers in similiar situations helps calm the waters on both sides of the table when issues arise.

 

Than switch to a story tending mode and extract the full story of how the customer ended up in the situation they are in today. It is not always about our product and/or service. However, part of caring for the customer is forming a human to human connection while helping them solve their issues.

 

Using the power of story to have a conversation is what the best nurses do with us if you think back to a positive experience.They know how to build trust one story at a time. And always remember, keep the stories short, concise and to the point. Use them to extract the customer's story, which is the goal.
