Team building games offer students fun opportunities to hone critical skills for success in the modern workplace. Students (and future employees!) that value teamwork are more motivated and creative. They’re also better at problem solving and communicating with one another and have a higher level of trust. We already know students love working in groups. Why not make a game of it?
Andrea Mejia Medina's curator insight, March 18, 12:10 AM
Critical thinking is the most important skill to develop, since in these times of information at hand, we cannot believe everything we see, read, and hear, and that is why it is important to develop this ability as it allows us to be alert and question everything that comes from these means of information. Is a skill that moves a student from concrete ideas to abstract and inferred concepts. Critical thinking allows us to analyze outcomes, compare ideas, identify parallels, sequence events, synthesize information and draw conclusions from a given body of knowledge. Whether it is the proof behind a mathematics formula or an implied tone in an essay, critical thinking skills enable students to solve problems in the real world and on exams in school. Meghan Moll (2014) suggests five tools to develop the critical thinking skills necessary for success on every high school or college test and assignment. 1. Brain games: Recently, websites dedicated to training your brain have enjoyed increased popularity. Lumosity, for example, provides games that aid in improving memory and problem-solving. From timed matching games to order sequence memorization, websites like this can aid in cognition and the ability to ask, "What is the next step?" This skill is critical to learning how to approach complex problems on standardized tests like the ACT and SAT. Rather than playing time-wasting games when you have a lull in your day, search online for brain teasers and peruse the plethora of brain games at your fingertips. 2. Logic puzzles: Before the Internet, puzzles intended to exercise your brain were published in books. Collections of crossword puzzles, logic problems, riddles, sudoku, word problems and word searches can be found at your local bookstore or library. The puzzles in these books are a wonderful strategy to activate different parts of your brain for a round or two of mental gymnastics, and many collections even discuss what each puzzle is meant to target within the mind. 3. Board games: This suggestion may seem strange at first, but do not balk. Choose board games that require more than luck – namely, strategy – for players to win. Any game where players must carefully consider their next move, recognize patterns and remember details will aid in honing critical thinking skills. Certain games like Rubik’s Cube are single-player, while others involve multiple people. Checkers, chess and Mastermind are two-player games that challenge you to plan several steps ahead. Games like Boggle and Scrabble require analyzing information quickly and formulating words, while Clue and Risk test and strengthen your ability to anticipate and react to others’ moves, as well as infer motives. 4. Journaling: Daily reflection – such as maintaining a journal – is a simple way to revisit your day, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to explore ideas. Writing encourages you to expand upon your thoughts and form connections. A journal forces you to slow down and focus on just one or two ideas at a time, which hectic schedules don't otherwise allow. Use your journal to record important ideas and questions and narratives about your life. 5. Book clubs: Students who read for understanding find it far easier to think critically than those who rush to finish. Analyzing a book requires you to delve deeper and ponder complex questions. When reading, think about why the book was written the way it was, what motivates certain characters, and how plot developments may be symbols of foreshadowing. Locate a book club to hone these skills. You will read works you otherwise may not have, and you will learn to examine character development, plot, symbolism and a whole host of other features.

How to Give Feedback That Actually Helps People Grow

How to Give Feedback That Actually Helps People Grow | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

If there's one thing all management experience has taught me, it's that feedback is one of the most important parts of the relationship between an employer and employee. It is also one of the most complicated--especially when it comes to critical feedback.

 

But constructive criticism is very much a necessary part of work life, so it needs to be handled well and in real-time.

 

Kim Scott's Radical Candor is a great way to think about delivering feedback that might not always be easy to hear, but is important nonetheless. Kim, a former Google and Apple executive, often points to an experience during her early days at Google when her then-boss Sheryl Sandberg told her she said "um" too often during an otherwise slam-dunk presentation. Sheryl was clear in her criticism and suggested Kim get a speech coach (at Google's expense) to address the issue. Here is a further explanation of why this works:

According to Research, Procrastinating Can Boost Your Creativity

According to Research, Procrastinating Can Boost Your Creativity | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it
Procrastination improves creativity
Art is never finished, only abandoned.” — Leonardo da Vinci
Everything left undone is always still very much on your mind most of the time. You get to think about it more often than tasks you have completed. This encourages you to think about new ways to improve or do it better.

 

Adrienne Branson of Canva says:
“Unfinished work is hard for your mind to let go of — in a good way. Your mind keeps churning, considering other options, creative solutions to the problem. Ever had a project that you just couldn’t stop talking, thinking, or dreaming about? This is how you make that happen.”

 

"The procrastination thought process works best for people who are working on innovative projects and need creative ideas for solve pending problems. You probably won’t benefit from procrastination if you have to deliver on tasks at the office and have strict deadlines to meet.

 

"Innovators and creative professionals use procrastination to their benefit more often than everyone else. Leonardo Da Vinci was a famous procrastinator. He finished the Mona Lisa in 1517 despite having started it in 1503."

I selected this article from Curatti written by Ashley Faulkes because it explains the process of running a blog and then turning it into a business.

 

The story of how one blogger became a businessman.

 

Going From Blogger to Business Owner

 

Starting a blog can involve a lot of learning curves along the way. I agree that content marketers need to fully understand digital marketing in order to be successful in business.

 

Faulkes provides his own perspective on what it takes to run a successful blogging business.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Start by learning as much as you can from leading blogging experts. Then brush up on your digital marketing skills in areas like social media, SEO, and email marketing.

 

  • It is not enough to just have a blog. Your business needs to be running your content, not the other way around. If you lack skills you just need to learn more.

 

  • When attending a conference hang out with a few like-minded individuals who will push you to grow. Read as much as you can about the topic of blogging for business.

Intéressant point de vue sur la façon dont le «Like button» influence nos publications. Pour ma part, je ne pense pas qu'il ait lésé Internet, mais plutôt qu'il ait permis à davantage de monde de s'exprimer facilement. Les personnes réellement engagées continueront à commenter, à échanger sur le sujet. Les «likers» manifeste quant à eux simplement leur centre d'intérêt. Après, la question qui se pose est quelle valeur a ce Like, si on a l'habitude de liker tout ce qui bouge.

Interesting point of view. In my opinion, I don't think the like button has harmed the Internet, but I think that it has permits more people to easily give their point of view. People actually engaged still comment and discuss on the topic. The "likers" simply show their interest. Afterwards, the question that arises is what value has this Like, if it is used 1000 times a day, to like everything.

[PDF] The digital talent gap: Developing skills for today's digital organizations

[PDF] The digital talent gap: Developing skills for today's digital organizations | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it
The shortage of digital skills in the current marketplace is unprecedented. It is estimated that over 4.4 million IT jobs will be created around Big Data by 2015; however, only a third of these new jobs will be filled. Martha Lane Fox, the UK’s digital inclusion champion, believes over 16 million people in the UK lack the basic digital skills to fully benefit from the Internet. Even Millenials are a matter of concern. In a survey comprising over 800 middle to upper management executives from over 50 industries, nearly one in five Millenials in the modern workplace are perceived to be lacking in analytical skills.
 
The reasons driving this skills shortage are not hard to identify. The usage of mobile, social and analytical tools is permeating the length and breadth of every function across the organization. Unlike the past, the impact of these digital technologies and tools is felt not just in the IT department. This means that the magnitude of training and re-skilling thatis required is enormous. Moreover, each new technology cycle has brought forth new requirements and these cycles are increasingly getting shorter. Employees must now refresh their skills more frequently if they wish to stay relevant in this rapidly changing digital environment. The head of India R&D Labs of software firm SAP succinctly states: “The shelf life of a software engineer today is no more than that of a cricketer – about 15 years. The 20-year-old guys provide me more value than the 35-year-olds do.
 
Organizations are beginning to recognize the magnitude of the problem. Our own research with the MIT Center for Digital Business has revealed that 77% of companies considered missing digital skills as the key hurdle to their digital transformation. Digital leaders or ‘Digirati’ a are already investing in digital skills and reaping significant benefits in comparison to other companies (see Figure 1). On average, ‘Digirati’ are
26% more profitable than their industry competitors.
 
This skills shortage is creating a ‘war for talent’, where companies have to compete for the best talent with new categories of players. Unlike in the past, the hunt for the best talent is no more limited to localized skills in certain departments. In this case, the talent war is manifest across the entire organization. The important questions are: Do organizations include digital skills as a key component in their workforce plans? Are HR departments equipped and skilled to bring innovative solutions to bridge the digital skills gap? How are Digiratis developing digital skills?

  • The number of followers still matters if you want your content to be shared. They key is to have a targeted audience who will spread the word.

 

  • Instead of focusing on higher numbers produce quality content instead. Along with this provide great social customer service.

 

  • Set realistic goals on your social platform growth. For example, a ten percent increase each month. This is subject to fluctuations and changes as you monitor your accounts.

Augmented reality–a technology that uses a trigger image to superimpose digital content over a user’s view of the real world–is growing in popularity and accessibility, and it holds a wealth of potential for education. Often described as “QR codes on steroids,” the technology offers new and exciting ways for students to interact with lessons, said Jeff Peterson, an instructional technologist in the Lamar Consolidated ISD in Texas. Peterson presented a TCEA 2017 session on augmented reality’s application in classrooms. Augmented reality-based apps infuse more engagement into learning exercises, and students often grasp complex concepts quickly with interactive content, said Peterson, referencing Drew Minock, an advocate for augmented reality in the classroom and outreach manager at augmented reality company Daqri.

Laura Ascione. "12 augmented reality apps students". La realidad aumentada le da una vuelta de tuerca a la enseñanza. Te permite ver las matemáticas desde un prisma visual, libros que cobran vida por el arte animado o la misma ciencia en movimiento.

How to use the new 70:20:10 rule for knowledge sharing | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it
I discovered a new rule for knowledge sharing, the 70:20:10 rule. In any given company 10% of the employees is willing to actively share their knowledge.

La regla 70:20:10 sobre cómo se comparte el conocimiento en las organizaciones.


El 10% comparte el conocimiento de manera activa - "El voluntario"


El 20% necesita un empujón. Comparten el conocimiento si son invitados - "El capaz"


El 70% se limita a consumir el conocimiento generado por otros -  "El perezoso"

70:20:10 ...

10% des employés sont disposés à partager leur connaissance.

20% des employés vont interagir avec le premier 10%; donner leurs commentaires, bonifier, etc...

70% vont consommer le contenu sans interagir.

Les chiffres ne sont peut-être pas totalement exacts mais ça donne un ordre de grandeur quand on parle de partage de connaissance.  Il me semble que ça correspond pas mal à mon expérience dans quelques organisations ...

L'auteur, dans un autre article ( https://kasperspiro.com/2016/09/13/702010-and-user-generated-learning-no-way/ ) présente les objections les plus souvent utilisées pour ne pas adopter des stratégies de partage de connaissance et tente d'argumenter ...  Un peu "pitch de vente" mais on se reconnaît quand même dans les objections formulées.
