Learnings

Throughout this exercise, I have learned a lot of new things especially new websites that are fun and intellectual. This exercise would help me personally for my growth and may also apply the knowledge I have learned to my business. Admittedly, Blogging is new to me, this is the first time I have made my own blogsite. The interface is quite rare to me and in starting the site, I had a hard time with the interface. However, as I go along, I got used to it and felt so much fun doing it along the way.

My Favorite management guru- Steve Jobs

Seven lessons in success from the Apple legend.

 

Steve Jobs was not your typical Silicon Valley CEO. Unlike most tech companies founders, he had neither any engineering experience nor any business training. After all, he dropped out of college after one semester! Few people know that Steve Jobs was never CEO of Apple in his first run there: the company was run by older executives and investors, and Steve Jobs actually helped them hire an experienced, 'well-rounded' CEO in 1983, John Sculley. However, Jobs was kicked out of Apple by Sculley two years later and he watched him bring the company to naught during his tenure.

The lesson he learned from this painful experience was to trust his own beliefs and values, and completely disregard the conventional views on how to run a company, including the traditional duties of a CEO. He delegated those duties to members of his executive team, most notably his second-in-command and eventual successor, Tim Cook, and focused on what he was best at: creating products, recruiting, marketing, and of course, being the public face of the company.

In his work, he stresses the importance of focusing on the positive qualities of human being.

Advantage of YouTube

Youtube is a video-sharing website created by former PayPal employees in 2005, which users can upload, view and share videos. Thus, any kinds of videos can be uploaded most especially the ones which are educational and instructional in nature. On this note, Youtube can be of great help since it is now widely used as an e-learning resource to teach, communicate and instruct everyone any important information as deemed needed without physical travel to offices, classrooms and the like.

The Flipped Classroom

One of the greatest benefits of flipping is that overall interaction increases: Teacher to student and student to student.  Since the role of the teacher has changed from presenter of content to learning coach, we spend our time talking to kids.  We are answering questions, working with small groups, and guiding the learning of each student individually.
  
When students are working on an assignment and we notice a group of students who are struggling with the same thing, we automatically organize the students into a tutorial group.  We often conduct mini-lectures with groups of students who are struggling with the same content. The beauty of these mini-lectures is we are delivering "just in time" instruction when the students are ready for learning.

Since the role of the teacher has changed, to more of a tutor than a deliverer of content, we have the privilege of observing students interact with each other.  As we roam around the class, we notice the students developing their own collaborative groups.  Students are helping each other learn instead of relying on the teacher as the sole disseminator of knowledge.  It truly is magical to observe.  We are often in awe of how well our students work together and learn from each other.

Some might ask how we developed a culture of learning.  We think the key is for students to identify learning as their goal, instead of striving for the completion of assignments.  We have purposely tried to make our classes places where students carry out meaningful activities instead of completing busy work.  When we respect our students in this way, they usually respond.  They begin to realize, and for some it takes time, that we are here to guide them in their learning instead of being the authoritative pedagogue.  Our goal is for them to be the best learner possible, and to truly understand the content in our classes.  When our students grasp the concept that we are on their side, they respond by doing their best.

All About ME

All About ME | All About Edward | Scoop.it

Hi! I am Edward Kenneth Kung, most of my friends in school call me Ed, and my family calls me Ken. I am born on January 2, 1986 at Metro Manila Philippines. I am the only child and my father has already joined our Creator when I was 2. I finished my primary and Secondary Education at Philippine Cultural High School Annex and I took up AB Political Science in my undergraduate degree. Today, I am taking up MBA-JD program at De la Salle University-Far Eastern University, and hopefully graduate in 2016. I have always dreamt of becoming a lawyer someday and hopefully run for public office. I wanted to deliver justice to those who are opressed and to those underpriviledged member or sector of the society. After college graduation, I have concentrated on my own business, Dreamcast events production. It never reached my imagination that my love for events would end up me opening a business, hire several staffs and eventually grow big. All I wanted was just a simple business wherein it could somehow be sustainable, pay monthly compensation of my staffs, and enjoy what I do. However, God is good! He heard my prayers and even gave me a bonus. He provided us numerous projects, huge clients and good income. Through the years, we have already established our name in the industry and we have already gained the trust of several Multi-National corporations and Individuals. On the other hand, I also sit as a Corporate Secretary of a business which was started by my late father. I sometimes do assist my mother in running the business. We are into metal fabrication especially for electrical fittings. Some of our huge clients includes SM, SMDC, Jollibee Foods Corp., Century Properties, and even governmental projects.
To know me more personally, I have a little obsession with cars. I also love to travel, explore the other countries, know their cultures and taste their food. Currently, I have no sports to play because of my tight schedule. In fact, I am an entrepreneur by day, student by night and a good son at the end of the day.

Top 2 management Guru

 

William Henry "Bill" Gates III (born October 28, 1955) is an American business magnate, computer programmer and philanthropist. Gates is the former chief executive and current chairman of Microsoft, the world’s largest personal-computer software company he co-founded with Paul Allen. He is consistently ranked among the world's wealthiest people and was the wealthiest overall from 1995 to 2009, excluding 2008, when he was ranked third; in 2011 he was the wealthiest American and the second wealthiest person. During his career at Microsoft, Gates held the positions of CEO and chief software architect, and remains the largest individual shareholder, with 6.4 percent of the common stock. He has also authored or co-authored several books. Gates is one of the best-known entrepreneurs of the personal computer revolution. Gates has been criticized for his business tactics, which have been considered anti-competitive, an opinion which has in some cases been upheld by the courts. In the later stages of his career, Gates has pursued a number of philanthropic endeavors, donating large amounts of money to various charitable organizations and scientific research programs through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, established in 2000. Gates stepped down as chief executive officer of Microsoft in January 2000. He remained as chairman and created the position of chief software architect. In June 2006, Gates announced that he would be transitioning from full-time work at Microsoft to part-time work, and full-time work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Advantages of Web 2.0 Advertising

Word-of-mouth advertising is the defining element of Web 2.0 advertising. It's all about making new connections and expanding your internet presence via social networking.

Web 2.0 advertising through social networking gives you the much needed proximity to your clients, increases the frequency of social contact and changes the dynamics between you and your customers. It creates structured internet communities and puts like minded people in touch with others, where once it was impossible. Social networking, which is viral in nature, keeps the community growing and extends your reach indefinitely.

The Social Media Revolution 2012

Many of the advantages and disadvantages of Internet blogging can be judged by the type of blog being maintained. For example, some of the things that are advantages for personal blogs may actually be disadvantages for business related blogs and sites. The quick and easy way that a blog can be updated is a great advantage to bloggers – especially personal ones who want to be able to keep a daily log of events. This ease, however, can lead to unreal expectations for business blogs – where visitors might expect them to be updated each day, even if that's not possible.

Another advantage of personal blogs is the ability to vent your feelings, by simply typing in some text and letting the whole world be able to read what is going on in your head. This same advantage can be a disadvantage for a business blog as well. While writing in a blog that is business related, it can become all too easy to start writing in a conversational tone, or to express some personal feelings towards your company that might be misconstrued.
