Here’s what Anders says can make you an expert: 

Get Help: Find a mentor who can help you develop that image in your head of the best way to do something.

It’s Not “Try Harder”, It’s “Try Different”: Design specific activities to address your weak points.

It’s About Doing, Not Knowing: Remember the three F’s: Focus, Feedback, Fix it.

What is your PKM routine? | LEARNing To LEARN | eSkills

What is your PKM routine? | LEARNing To LEARN | eSkills | social learning for change | Scoop.it

The most important aspect of PKM is that it is personal. In order to stick with a routine over time, people have to find what works for them. Blogging has been a core part of my sense-making routine over the past decade. When I conduct workshops, my primary aim is help others discover what works for them. I do not have a secret formula, only some general guidelines developed through experience, plus a lot of ideas and suggested areas to explore.

My colleague Jane Hart shared her daily PKM routine recently and it’s different from mine, which of course it should be.

Hoe werkt jouw PKM? Alweer een manier om eigenaar te worden van je eigen leren. Een nuttig inzicht en een waardevolle oefening om zelf eens uit te tekenen.

Tamie Douglas's curator insight, October 1, 2015 1:33 AM

With the amount of different types of digital resources, websites and technologies, it is no wonder educators can be intimidated at the thought of introducing them into their classrooms. Building on their PKM is critical in staying relatively up-to-date with technology, devices, applications, blogs or blogging and websites. Developing a preference is only natural and will allow educators to be become more confident and knowledgable in a few of these technologies and delve deeper into their uses and capabilities, instead of just 'scratching the surface' of many.

The 7 Ps of Modern Workplace Learning

The 7 Ps of Modern Workplace Learning | social learning for change | Scoop.it

21 April 2015 by Jane Hart: I have shared, in a number of places, a diagram of Modern Workplace Learning (MWL) , which I believes visualise all the main ways we learn at work. However, I have recently added a few P words that have helped to summarise the different elements as well as L&D’s role in it in order to help people at work. so I am sharing this diagram.

Roberto Ivan Ramirez's curator insight, December 8, 2014 3:36 PM

No sólo se debe enfocar en la cantidad de herramientas tecnológicas o recursos digitales que los docentes de determinado nivel educativo puedan implementar en su práctica pedagógica, sin antes se reflexiona la manera como las tecnologías pueden ser de utilidad para generar aprendizaje de manera individual o colaborativo, todo depende del tipo de estrategia o técnica a ser empleada, si se va a centrar en resolver problemas o desarrollar proyectos. Es parte de lo que propone el modelo TPACK, integración de diversos conocimientos que atiendan de manera transversal la realidad cotidiana de los alumnos, de la sociedad y del mundo.

The Best Leaders Are Critical Thinkers - Lolly Daskal | Leadership

The Best Leaders Are Critical Thinkers - Lolly Daskal | Leadership | social learning for change | Scoop.it

What makes some leaders stand out from the rest?

It has to do with their ability to think decisively.

The best leaders evaluate their options, weigh in on the alternatives, connect the dots, and look for potential in order to make informed decisions.

Here are some of the things great critical thinkers make a habit of:

Leading with questions. Open-ended questions, in particular, help you get to the heart of the matter. Start with Why?, How?, What?, and Where?

Embracing different points of view. As a leader, you need to be able to take advantage of the diversity in your team (and board, if you have one) to help you see things from different perspectives. The best leaders see and make use of the insights that everyone has to offer. They honor different opinions and ideas, because they know those differences lead to better decisions.

Leading with agility. As the old saying goes, the only constant is change—and the variables are always shifting and adjusting. Leading through change requires an open mind that can see opportunity in every situation.

Keeping an open mind. In the complex world of business, a leader with an open mind will find potential by sizing up all the answers, holding on to differences of opinion, and taking in all the variables to see clearly.

The leader who thinks critically and manages ambiguity will be the one who leads where others cannot.

Lead From Within: Be the leader who knows that nothing is as it seems. There is always uncertainty; there is always ambiguity. Be clever enough to size things up, connect the dots, see the potential, and act decisively when no one else can.

Unstuck — Why can’t I finish what I started?

Unstuck — Why can’t I finish what I started? | social learning for change | Scoop.it

Every so often, almost unwittingly, our ambition withers and things languish half finished. At Unstuck, we call this acting like an Idle Achiever. We’re unable to commit to the project or the person or the mission at hand. Instead, we start and stop like we’re driving a stick shift for the first time.

To smooth out this herky-jerky moment, it helps to understand how we got there in the first place. Take our mini-quiz to find out what type of Idle Achiever you tend to be. Then, the next time idleness strikes, try out the exercises on our “Done and Done” printable worksheet.

carmendsw's insight:

Great short blog about capacity building in development cooperation. Many 'capacity building' projects focus on transfer of knowledge to a few selected individuals for a limited period of time (for example in a training).

Take-aways: I.) To have an impact, capacity building must support learners (and their organisations) to take active responsibility of learning and applying what they have learned. II.) Experts are not always the best facilitators or teachers III.) Development sector needs to apply adult learning methods and insights from others about how to engage people and support their learning process.

Information and knowledge sharing are crucial for building a sector with the ability to learn and adapt. Such information flows can also help drive down costs. This article explains that the challenge of information sharing goes beyond technologies and platforms, to this issue of creating a culture that encourages more openness and data sharing, ensureing staff understand how and why to share data safely, fostering trust and making sure the right skills are in place. Effective information sharing requires a clear purpose and leadership commitment.
