Epict Italia's curator insight, January 13, 1:37 AM

Ecco cosa consiglia il collega d'oltreoceano: 

Stay Local > cerca delle occasioni di formazione/ condivisione vicino a casa
Connect Online > controlla la rete con le sue risorse
Attend an EdCamp > frequenta dei seminari (che chiamano edcamp...ne organizziamo uno???) 
Present or Volunteer > proporsi come autore o volontario nei congressi, worksho ecc: potrebbero esserci delle facilitazioni
Pick Up a Book & Connect with the Author > usare la rete (loro dicono Twitter) per chiacchierare con l'autore del libro che abbiamo comprato
Invest in Yourself > Joe investe il 2-5% del suo stipendio in formazione...ma quanto guadagna (verrebbe da chiedergli?).

4 Characteristics Of Learning Leaders

4 Characteristics Of Learning Leaders | Self-managed Learning | Scoop.it
TEST 4 Characteristics Of A Learning Leader
by Stewart Hase, Heutagogy of Community Practice
Writing is always a learning experience for me. It forces greater clarity.

Via Prof. Hankell
Roger Sommerville's insight:

I like the first characteristic - "ability to deal with ambiguity" - just recognising that ambiguity is part of leadership life is a big help.

Sharing with others and making leadership everyone's business are vital characteristics but I wonder if the great challenge about them is to recognise how we are using them - can I use open systems thinking all the time? Are there times when I am quite closed in my thinking especially with people I find difficult to like.

 

Food for thought as always from Stewart H.

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it)

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it) | Self-managed Learning | Scoop.it
 Earlier this month, Facebook dropped a bombshell by not only acknowledging that Facebook pages’ organic reach was declining but also by telling us we shouldn’t expect them to recover. Facebook’s VP of Product for Facebook Ads, Brian Boland, went on to explain that this is the new world we live in now, that the same thing happened with search engines before and that we’d better get used to it. It’s true that many platforms go through a similar cycle: first, they present a great free opportunity, then more and more people grab it - decreasing the return for everyone until finally, the platform focuses on those ready to pay for play. It happened with Google Search; it happened with Apps (yes, Apple doesn’t sell ads but others do - such as coincidentally... Facebook). And now that all social media are publicly-traded company with ambitious revenue targets to reach, it will happen to social media as well.
So what does the decline of organic reach on Facebook and social platforms exactly mean on a practical basis? Continue reading →
Roger Sommerville's insight:

Am I right in saying that as individuals or businesses we need to constantly focus on being charge of our publishing and providing means for it to remain relevant through time?

Beware online "filter bubbles"

Beware online "filter bubbles" | Self-managed Learning | Scoop.it
As web companies strive to tailor their services (including news and search results) to our personal tastes, there's a dangerous unintended consequence: We get trapped in a "filter bubble" and don't get exposed to information that could challenge or broaden our worldview. Eli Pariser argues powerfully that this will ultimately prove to be bad for us and bad for democracy.
Roger Sommerville's insight:

Getting a balanced viewpoint is becoming more of a challenge!

 

Our techniques to stop being "overrun by algorithms" need to be sharpened up. 

I suppose we have known this before with other media but somehow the personal nature of the internet when we use it has had us a bit fooled into thinking it was free of bias.

Roger Sommerville's insight:

Mark Basnage has summarised for us the basis of successful learning in the 21st Century - this could be for adults or school age students.

..."think deeply and act as a practitioner of the discipline"

..."embracing failure as an opportunity for growth"

.."shine a light on the processes we use to discover ourselves"

 

It is great to see his ideas fit the 21st Century but do not get side-tracked by digital things.

Roger Sommerville's insight:

I like this quote "“Capable people are those who: know how to learn; are creative; have a high degree of self-efficacy; can apply competencies in novel as well as familiar situations; and can work well with others. In comparison with competencies which consist of knowledge and skills, capability is a holistic attribute.”

Notice how IT terminology is absent. Adaptable capable people are the key.

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | Self-managed Learning | Scoop.it
Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.
Roger Sommerville's insight:

The reimagine appeals as it offers some insights to how our information world could offer new more shared community views of education. Perhaps with teachers roles following a very different path than was the case through the 20th Century.
