Philip Siegel's curator insight, March 5, 2014 8:54 PM

The article talks about how to be successful coming from those who are extremely successful, such as Mark Zuckerberg. It says what type of attitude to have when addressing things. The attitude you should have is one of not being afraid to take chances and persevere when the going gets tough.

Kira Saini's curator insight, March 6, 2014 9:25 AM

This article is discussing the skills that successful entrepreneurs have. Out of all the skills, striving to work harder and increase your intelligence to reduce making mistakes can be connected to them. This article basically says that learning is more important to being successful than proving you are smart.

This Is How The Way You Read Impacts Your Memory And Productivity

This Is How The Way You Read Impacts Your Memory And Productivity | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

It’s no understatement that digital mediums have taken over every aspect of our lives. We check what our friends are doing on the glowing screens in our hands, read books on dedicated e-readers, and communicate with customers and clients primarily through email. Yet for all the benefits digital mediums have provided us, there has been a growing body of evidence over the past several years that the brain prefers analog mediums.

 

Studies have shown that taking notes by longhand will help you remember important meeting points better than tapping notes out on your laptop or smartphone. The reason for that could be that “writing stimulates an area of the brain called the RAS (reticular activating system), which filters and brings clarity to the fore the information we’re focusing on,” according to Maud Purcell, a psychotherapist and journaling expert. If that’s the case, and the analog pen really is mightier than the phone, it’s no wonder some of my colleagues have ditched smartphones for paper planners.

Artificial Intelligence: Are Computers Taking Over for Teachers?

Artificial Intelligence: Are Computers Taking Over for Teachers? | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

"If you’re an educator, you’ve probably noticed that the profession has undergone significant change in the last few years. With the growth of the flipped classroom model and the plethora of resources available via apps and websites, teachers are no longer considered the experts."


Via EDTECH@UTRGV
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Are computers going to replace teachers? The teaching profession has undergone much change during the years. The advent of computers, digital technology and now A.I., have all fueled this change. Gone are the days when Gurus were Gurus and Eklavya gave his thumb to his Guru! The title Guru changed into Teacher and now Teacher is, Facilitator or even Supervisor! The role of the teacher has shifted from expert to facilitator, centre stage to side stage. Teachers are more expensive than computers, imagine, you could buy a computer every month for the salary that a teacher gets every month! All this change has been driven by the advent of computers into every sphere of life. Flipped classrooms, research methods, collaborative learning, online tests and surveys, like Socratic, for example, have proved the teacher is no longer the expert he once was, and he can be challenged at any time! I guess a time will soon come when computers and Artificial Intelligence will make it possible for schools to have half the number of teachers and yet run effectively! The teachers who remain will merely have a supervisory role and the work of ten teachers will be done by one supervisor/facilitator and computers. Students will have their personal computers and one facilitator will have five hundred students to supervise, thanks to the support given by A.I. and virtual classrooms. Students might not even need to come to school. There will be less traffic on the roads, you won't have to even run a school with electricity expenses, nor would you need to spend on infrastructure. This will be a sad state of affairs for a large number of teachers who do not take up the challenge of becoming future proof! They need to be well versed with the use of A.I. computers, LMS modules, ERP modules, infographics, Blogs and so on.

As employees increasingly take control of their learning, L&D professionals will need to focus more on measuring and assessing their skills.

Via EDTECH@UTRGV
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Digital learning requires new evaluation strategies that differ a great deal from the traditional evaluation criteria used to check written or even oral work. Digital learning is more varied and expansive than pen and paper learning. It encompasses within it research skills, social skills, work ethics (related to respecting intellectual property rights) and last but not least authenticity. An authentic assessment of Digital Learning will have to take more skills into consideration.

Delivering lessons to kids about proper online behavior not only fosters cyberethics, but helps keep them safe online.

Via EDTECH@UTRGV
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Good Digital Citizenship is an offshoot of Good Social Citizenship. While the use of technology in all good schools is a reality today, it, however, has to be preceded by teaching about good Digital Citizenship. You can't expect an 'uncivilised' person to display good citizenship on the internet.Cyberbullying, digital footprints, copyright, privacy, information literacy and internet safety have to be taught to students before introducing BYOD into the classroom. It is equally important to organise workshops for parents to educate them about Digital Citizenship.It is only when we know about the ethics of digitization that we will be able to reap the benefits of technology!

Socratic Questions and Experiential Learning

rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Socratic Questioning and Experiential learning complement each other. I have come across many instances in the class where students wanted an outright answer to a tricky question but I just could not give them the answer too easily as it would defeat the very purpose of Experiential learning. What I did next was to ask the students a series of questions that ultimately led them closer to the answer. Socrates made use of questions to explore the abstract. Students at the school level might however soon get irritated by a 'smug teacher who knows all the answers but won't give them up', so one should be tactful while asking questions that are meant to lead the students to the answer.

These Are The Job Skills Of The Future That Robots Can’t Master | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

We may live in a digital world, but soft skills like communication, problem solving, collaboration, and empathy are becoming more valued than technology, says Paul Roehrig, chief strategy officer for Cognizant Digital Business, a business and technology service provider.

 

“People skills are more and more important in an era where we have powerful and pervasive technology,” he says. “It sounds counterintuitive, but to beat the bot, you need to be more human.”

 

When evaluating their hiring plans for 2017, 62% of employers rate soft skills as very important, according to CareerBuilder. But a recent survey by the Wall Street Journal found that 89% of executives are having a difficult time finding people with these qualities.

What Is Experiential Learning and How Does It Work?

What Is Experiential Learning and How Does It Work? | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it
How experiential learning enhances a curriculum to enrich the student learning experience and results in more student engagement and independent learning.
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
A lot of schools have jumped the bandwagon of Experiential Learning without really knowing the difference between Experimental and Experiential. In the old days, we would term experiential learning as learning by doing! Experiential learning seeks to make learning more student centred and it allows enough leeway for multiple strategies for learning. Experiential learning talks about learning from the students' point of view, therefore the learning objectives are referred to as learning targets and they start with "I can..." statements. Experiential learning has a lot in common with Expeditionary Learning.

What Science Says About Identifying High-Potential Employees

What Science Says About Identifying High-Potential Employees | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

How inclusive or exclusive should organizations be when developing their employees’ talents? In a world of unlimited resources, organizations would surely invest in everyone. After all, as Henry Ford is credited as saying, “the only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is not training them and having them stay.” In the real world, however, limited budgets force organizations to be much more selective, which explains the growing interest in high potential (HiPo) identification. An employee’s potential sets the upper limits of his or her development range — the more potential they have, the quicker and cheaper it is to develop them.

 

Scientific studies have long suggested that investing in the right people will maximize organizations’ returns. In line with Pareto’s principle, these studies show that across a wide range of tasks, industries, and organizations, a small proportion of the workforce tends to drive a large proportion of organizational results, such that:


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Good organisations will continue to train employees to be high potential workers even if there is a strong trend of employee attrition. In many cases, High Potential Employees who are trained well and are leaders without necessarily having titles will continue to drive performance. Such organisations will continue to train their employees to work to their optimum capacities.

Without Emotional Intelligence, Mindfulness Doesn’t Work

Without Emotional Intelligence, Mindfulness Doesn’t Work | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Mindfulness has become the corporate fad du jour, a practice widely touted as a fast-track to better leadership. But we suspect that not all the benefits laid at its feet actually belong there. Our research and analysis has revealed a complicated relationship between mindfulness and executive performance—one that is important for leaders to understand as they seek to develop in their careers.

 

Mindfulness is a method of shifting your attention inward to observe your thoughts, feelings, and actions without interpretation or judgment. A mindfulness practice often begins simply by focusing on your breath, noticing when your mind wanders, and then bringing it back to your breath. As you strengthen your ability to concentrate, you can then shift to simply noting your inner experience without getting lost in it at any point in your day. The benefits attributed to this kind of practice range from stronger relationships with others to higher levels of leadership performance.


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
How could we have forgotten that Mindfulness does not work without Emotional Intelligence, according to this Harvard article!

He realized that he had harshly high standards for himself at work, and held everyone else to these same rigid, perfectionistic expectations.

Via EDTECH@UTRGV
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
It is difficult to answer how well laptops help learning. This is an honest article that makes it very clear that using laptops might not after all, be such a good idea for all the subjects since an essay that is word processed might not be 'fluid enough' and thus a better option would be to put pen to paper! Moreover, the effective use of a laptop will also be dependent on the student's familiarity with the machine and the software. Economic status is also a limiting factor because, students have used laptops from birth (pun intended) will be more proficient in its use than those who have started relatively late and probably have even shared a laptop with others. We have gone beyond power point and Microsoft word. Fortunately enough, we need not be worried enough that we are the only ones facing problems with the integration of technology in teaching since similar issues since they have been observed in the United States too! So, before we rush to encourage the BYOD culture, we need to put in processes, and systems for the integration of EDTECH in schools.

This Is The Link Between Employee Motivation And Their Manager’s Mental State

This Is The Link Between Employee Motivation And Their Manager’s Mental State | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

To effectively lead and motivate employees, you don’t need charisma and a grand vision. Research from Michigan State University (MSU) found that being a successful boss was more about mind over matter.

 

The study, published in the journal Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, found that a leader’s focus, or mind-set, affects his or her own behavior, which in turn affects employees’ motivation. And the good news is that your mind-set can be changed to produce certain outcomes from workers, from creativity to loss prevention.

 

“Effective leadership may be based in part on a leader’s ability to recognize when a particular mental state is needed in their employees and to adapt their own mental state and their behaviors to elicit that mind-set,” says Brent Scott, MSU professor of management and study coauthor. “Part of the story here is that you don’t have to be Steve Jobs to be an effective leader. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to managing.”

 


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
According to Brent Scott, MSU Professor of Managment, " effective leadership may be based on a leader's ability to recognize when a particular mental state is needed in their employees and to adapt their own mental state and their behaviours to elicit that mindset." Ideal leadership needs to be a judicious combination of the "Conservative Mindset and Innovative mindset". I would compare these two mindsets with the "Fixed mindset and Growth mindset". Fortunately, according to the writer of the article, mindsets can be changed!
