10 rasgos que configuran el ADN del Socialnetworker

10 rasgos que configuran el ADN del Socialnetworker | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

1. Utilizan su capacidad relacional para la generación de valor.Representan al animal social por excelencia. Se relacionan para generar valor, para crear oportunidades que impacten en positivo en la cuenta de resultados.

2. No entienden la actividad profesional como una acción individual. Saben que la generación de valor depende de su habilidad para establecer, construir y alimentar relaciones de forma constante y persistente en el tiempo.

3. Entienden la Red como un conjunto de Entornos y Conexiones. No limitan su actividad relacional en un único ámbito, al contrario, las conexiones que establecen les permiten desarrollar y construir nuevos entornos y activar nuevos nodos.

4. Construyen espacios de conversación de forma natural. Utilizan la tecnología a su alcance para fomentar conversaciones y explorar nuevas ideas y procesos que permitan desarrollar nuevos productos y/o servicios.

5. Son conectores de conocimiento. Su dimensión socio-relacional tiene como finalidad identificar nuevos profesionales, desarrollar su relación con ellos para seguir tejiendo la red. Cada persona incorporada a su red profesional supone un universo de oportunidades para conectar conocimiento que genere impacto en el negocio.

6. Promueven la inteligencia colectiva. Es precisamente su constante actividad relacional y su actividad como arquitectos de espacios de conversación lo que les permite acelerar los procesos de inteligencia colectiva.

7. Entienden el trabajo como una actividad que supera el concepto espacio-tiempo. La tecnología les permite estar presentes y activos en cualquier momento y en cualquier lugar. Su actividad prima por encima de su ubicación y el tiempo de realización de la misma.

8. Hacen de la conectividad su modus vivendi tanto hacia el interior de la organización como hacia el exterior. Independientemente de su nivel de actuación, área funcional o nivel de responsabilidad su grado de conectividad es ulterior.

9. Optimizan y rentabilizan la tecnología como medio al servicio de su actividad relacional. La tecnología es un potenciador de su modus vivendi, un acelerador de las oportunidades de conexión.

10. Interpretan la realidad como entorno de cambio y oportunidad. El cambio no supone un factor generador de tensión sino una constante integrada en su forma de hacer empresa. Asumen que lo permanente es un terreno ficticio y que su propio set de comportamientos hoy, puede ser diferente mañana.

Grupo B Dolores's curator insight, November 24, 2013 12:47 PM

El social networker es una autodenominación mas postmoderna que la que fue en los años noventa "trabajadores del conocimiento" y sobre todo destaca este nuevo especimen social que gusta especialmente del conocimiento colaborativo, de promover la inteligencia colectiva y la optimización y rentabilidad de la tecnología. 

Creo que no tenemos ningún reparo los miembros de este grupo de declararnos todos social networkers.

Reframing Educational Priorities for future readiness

Reframing Educational Priorities for future readiness | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Supporting at-risk youth is complex and varied today. As work changes over the coming decades, helping all young people complete their educations and prepare to contribute productively to society could get more complicated. Today’s approaches to, and definitions of, readiness will not suffice for the careers that today’s kindergartners will be launching and developing in the year 2040.
What knowledge, skills and dispositions are important for all learners to succeed in the careers that will be launching and developing in the year 2040?
Participants’ work at the National Dropout Prevention Conference, highlighting knowledge, skills and dispositions that seem important for all learners

At the National Dropout Prevention Conference, I shared insights from KnowledgeWorks’ The Future of Learning: Redefining Readiness from the Inside Out and engaged session participants in exploring what the changing nature of readiness for further learning, work and life could mean from their perspectives. I asked them to imagine elements of future graduate profiles that could help learners prepare for a rapidly changing landscape in which many of us will need to be reskilling and upskilling throughout our careers. Participants highlighted knowledge, skills and dispositions that seem important for all learners.

How technology has changed Education and will keep changing it

How technology has changed Education and will keep changing it | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Much like death and taxes, education is an essential part of human life. In fact, unlike death and taxes, education is a part of the rest of the animal kingdom as well. Teaching the young is simply something that we do—helping them understand the world, make better choices and pass knowledge on to the next generation.

While education is an instinctive drive, however, that doesn’t mean we can’t improve upon it. And indeed, we have been, for thousands of years. As technology has advanced, we have inevitably used those developments to the betterment of education … and will continue to do so in the future.

Without further ado, here’s a brief retrospective of how technology has changed education, and a few of the ways we predict it will do so in future. So whip out that laptop or tablet, open your favourite notes app, and let’s get started.

My vision for the Future of Assessment in Education

My vision for the Future of Assessment in Education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Assessment is a big part of today’s education landscape. Most states use high-stakes assessments to measure student growth and proficiency at the end of each school year. But is this really the best way to use assessments? The future of assessment in education needs to change.

In order to really reimagine the future of assessment, we must ask ourselves what the purpose of assessments really are. In their current form, assessments are used to measure everything students have learned. High-stakes end-of-year assessments are used to determine whether students pass or fail a class. These same assessments are used to judge the performance of schools.

Rather than use assessments as the final test of what students have learned and how well teachers have taught them, we should be using assessments to measure student progress all year long. These formative assessments, as opposed to the traditional summative assessments, will change the way we think of assessments.

How to encourage Higher Order thinking skills with Edtech

How to encourage Higher Order thinking skills with Edtech | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Higher order thinking is a critical skill that students need to learn before they venture out into the real world. In order to be successful outside of the classroom, students must learn to evaluate the information in front of them and solve problems creatively. Educators have a number of tools at their disposal to help students learn this all-important skill, but EdTech might be able to play a pivotal role.

The right EdTech programs and approaches can contribute to major growth in areas related to critical thinking. Here are a few of the most prominent ways educators are using technology to help their students learn to think.

El futuro será digital… y ético

El futuro será digital… y ético | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

El papel de la educación como adalid del cambio también es punto de encuentro entre los teóricos de Internet, pero no cualquier educación, sino una —como apunta Joseph Aoun— a prueba de robots. Para ello, propone que los centros educativos, especialmente los de enseñanza superior, integren en sus planes de estudio la formación en tres campos: “La computación, la analítica de datos y las habilidades sociales permitirán a las nuevas generaciones preservar ese componente humano frente a la inteligencia artificial”.

Algo similar defiende Leonhard, para quien el aprendizaje tiene que basarse en un equilibrio entre dos extremos: HECI (Humanismo, Ética, Creatividad e Imaginación), por un lado, y STEM (Ciencia, Tecnología, Ingeniería y Matemáticas), por otro. “Hay que invertir tanto en tecnología como en humanidad”, sentencia. Esa armonía, según Álvarez-Pallete, alumbrará a personas mejor preparadas de cara al mercado laboral del futuro: “La educación es esencial para adaptarnos a la revolución digital y esta transición debería formar abogados digitales, médicos digitales, economistas digitales”.

New study says Scientists are leaving Academic Work at unprecedented rates

New study says Scientists are leaving Academic Work at unprecedented rates | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The “half-life” of academic scientists has shortened dramatically over time, says a new paper calling attention to the “rise of the temporary workforce.” Following scientists in three fields, the paper’s authors found that it took about five years for a half of a science cohort to leave academic work in 2010 -- compared to 35 years in the 1960s.

The researchers also found a “rapid rise” in scientists who spend their careers supporting others and never leading a paper of their own -- from about 25 percent of scientists in the 1960s to 60 percent today. “Entering graduate students should be aware of this, so that they would have realistic expectations and perhaps try to plan their lives accordingly,” lead author Staša Milojević, associate professor of informatics at Indiana University, said Monday. While some scientists do survive and thrive, the paper says it remains somewhat unclear what drives that “survivability.”

Xavier Aragay: La creatividad va a ser el petróleo del siglo XXI | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Porque la educación está en crisis en todo el mundo, hay que innovar para transformar el sistema educativo, más que intentar adaptarlo, señaló Xavier Aragay, Director de Reimagine Education Lab, en su conferencia magistral “Reimaginar la educación, reimaginar la universidad” en el 5° Congreso Internacional de Innovación Educativa (CIIE).

Aragay señaló que prefiere la palabra ‘transformar’ a ‘innovar’. “¿Innovamos para adaptar un sistema, un modo de enseñar, que ya adivinamos que está en crisis, o estamos innovando para transformar? Porque no es lo mismo. Innovar para adaptar es resolver algunas cosas que no funcionan, innovar para transformar es pensar que puede haber una universidad distinta”, remarcó Aragay.

Five drivers of change on the Horizon for Education

Five drivers of change on the Horizon for Education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Though the future is inherently uncertain, it also rarely arrives unannounced. While it is true that no one can predict the long-term future accurately, we can gain an awareness of what is changing and think critically about what those changes might mean. That awareness allows us generate a range of possibilities of what could happen, what we think should happen and what we might want to avoid, which in turn can help us each take more informed action toward shaping the future

The process of identifying what is changing is often referred to as scanning. As futurists, my colleagues and I continually seek to identify trends, patterns and weak signals of change across a wide variety of topics or domains. Keeping an eye toward changes that are already happening and could potentially happen informs our thinking and provides evidence for the ways in which the future might be different than the present.

5 discoveries about Self-Paced Learning

5 discoveries about Self-Paced Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

When we think of self-paced training content, eLearning modules often come to mind. Even with the development of “choose-your-own-adventure” content and the inclusion of bells-and-whistles, eLearning can fail to resonate with modern learners.

This narrow view of self-paced learning hinders our creativity and limits the success of our learners. What if, instead, we elevated self-paced content to better bolster our blended training? We took that idea and ran with it to create our Exploring Gamification and Game-Based Learning campaign. Throughout our process, we made five surprising discoveries.

Kirkpatrick’s Model: How to calculate eLearning ROI

Kirkpatrick’s Model: How to calculate eLearning ROI | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

For most organizations, the value of training is clear-cut. New staff need to be onboarded and educated on tasks that are essential to their role, while current employees utilize training to keep their skills up to scratch.

Beyond this, customer training helps to ensure your customers understand your product or service increasing retention, while partner training scales your growth and protects your brand. Basically, training is a no-brainer!

At LearnUpon, our customers recognize the value of using a learning management system (LMS) to deliver training, but often ask how they might calculate their eLearning ROI, or return on investment.

In this post, we’ll explain what eLearning ROI is, how to calculate it, and the distinct ROI advantages eLearning provides when compared to traditional training delivery.

College graduates in general earn higher income, live longer and are healthier than those who complete only high school. But it doesn't always work out that way. Sometimes, depending on several factors, college graduates can end up worse off than people who haven't gone to college at all.

EdTechs and Instructional Designers—What's the difference? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

In a recent conversation with an assistant vice president (AVP) who manages both educational technologists (EdTechs) and instructional designers (IDs), the AVP expressed confusion over the difference between the two roles. In higher education, both roles typically report to the IT department. The confusion, then, should not be surprising. Neither role falls under traditional IT programming, systems analysis, or security roles, and, while the two roles revolve around computer systems and programs, their work is very different from traditional IT tasks. To exacerbate the situation, many IDs and EdTechs have experience and skills in both roles, and institutions sometimes post a position for either an ID or an EdTech when they're actually seeking a person for the role they didn't post.

Changing demographics of Scientific Careers: The rise of the temporary workforce

Changing demographics of Scientific Careers: The rise of the temporary workforce | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Contemporary science has been characterized by an exponential growth in publications and a rise of team science. At the same time, there has been an increase in the number of awarded PhD degrees, which has not been accompanied by a similar expansion in the number of academic positions. In such a competitive environment, an important measure of academic success is the ability to maintain a long active career in science. In this paper, we study workforce trends in three scientific disciplines over half a century. We find dramatic shortening of careers of scientists across all three disciplines. The time over which half of the cohort has left the field has shortened from 35 y in the 1960s to only 5 y in the 2010s. In addition, we find a rapid rise (from 25 to 60% since the 1960s) of a group of scientists who spend their entire career only as supporting authors without having led a publication. Altogether, the fraction of entering researchers who achieve full careers has diminished, while the class of temporary scientists has escalated. We provide an interpretation of our empirical results in terms of a survival model from which we infer potential factors of success in scientific career survivability. Cohort attrition can be successfully modeled by a relatively simple hazard probability function. Although we find statistically significant trends between survivability and an author’s early productivity, neither productivity nor the citation impact of early work or the level of initial collaboration can serve as a reliable predictor of ultimate survivability.

Plan Ceibal 2020: Future scenarios for technology and education—the case of the Uruguayan Public Education System

Plan Ceibal 2020: Future scenarios for technology and education—the case of the Uruguayan Public Education System | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

In the present work, a set of future studies were implemented in order to answer the following question: What will the future scenarios be within the next 5 years regarding new technologies in the public education sector in Uruguay? For this purpose, two panels (consisting of 20 participants internal to the programme and 25 international experts external to the programme) were set up to conduct a Delphi study. In addition, a historical analysis of the use of Internet resources at schools (traffic and users connected to the network) was developed. This section of the study brought us the following findings: Primary and middle public school centres have experienced an exponential growth in Internet use as measured by traffic downloads and uploads, as well as by connections. Traffic doubled every 1.5 years, and connections had doubled roughly every year in the period from 2011 to 2015.

The study integrated the Delphi results and the analysis of Internet use as a method for prospective scenario planning, based on which four main possible educational and technological scenarios for 2020 were identified. This approach allowed us to define the possible technological future for the national education and technology policy.

We found that the key challenges were not technological, but social and cultural factors. Some of the challenges to be explored are (1) How can we understand the role(s) of teachers better?, (2) can we rethink how technology is being used, adopted and adapted in learning environments?, and (3) what systemic changes are needed to respond these possible scenarios better through policy development? The findings suggest that problems and challenges presented by new technological innovations in education are not solved by more technology.

Finally, we consider an approach such as this could work as a framework to help develop public education and technology policies in other countries with middle to high incomes that have strong orientations toward public education, including much of Europe.
