Interesting, in other ways this could also be seen as framing learning as a constant performance of assessment. Where do you draw the line ?

The next evolution of schools: Highlights from our chat with Will Richardson

The next evolution of schools: Highlights from our chat with Will Richardson | Growth 2020 | Scoop.it

What will schools look like in 25 years? Educator and parent Will Richardson sees profound changes beginning to bubble up in classrooms around the world. In the past, knowledge was bounded — both in books and in classrooms. But today, the internet provides nearly endless learning opportunities for anyone who is interested. Which means that education should no longer focus on dates and facts, all just a Google search away, but instead on critical thinking.

Expert tips for using Twitter, Google+ and Quora to improve SEO

Expert tips for using Twitter, Google+ and Quora to improve SEO | Growth 2020 | Scoop.it

"At the moment reputation is largely determined by the quality and ultimately quantity of back links but I believe Google are moving towards assessing whether a site should rank based on the authority of the author, how socially shared it is in addition to how well linked it is.

 

So if you want your website to rank you’ll need to think about how you can make progress in all three of these areas. Unless there’s a dramatic shake up in the relationship between the major social services and Google the best data they have access to is their own network, which I think justifies taking the platform seriously.
But before we get to that stage social is already heavily influencing natural search results".

"Label 59 is a web application that lets you label anything interactively. It is ideal for creating engaging presentations that have interactive labels attached to them. These labels are hotspots on the photo and are represented by markers. You then define content for each of these markers by adding connectors, arrows, tooltips, text blocks and details window.

What you get as a result, is an impressive presentation (in Flash or HTML5) that highlights the key points on your photo when markers are clicked or when the mouse pointer hovers over them.

Facebook Launches Collections, “Want/Collect” Buttons That Save Products To Pinteresque Profile Sections

Facebook Launches Collections, “Want/Collect” Buttons That Save Products To Pinteresque Profile Sections | Growth 2020 | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article on TechCrunch:

"Facebook has just begun testing “Collections” — a new feature it says is “unrelated” to Pinterest but could be a competitor. It allows retailers to add “Want” or “Collect” buttons to news feed posts about products. These save and share products to a “Wishlist” on user profiles that host a “Buy” button that can be clicked through to make purchases offsite.

Seven retail partners can now share Collections posts to their fans.

 

Collections could help retailers score viral click-throughs to their product pages by making things their fans are interested in more discoverable to friends. Facebook isn’t earning affiliate fees on Collections click throughs, but it could get brands to buy ads to get more fans.

 

The “Want” button adds a product to a Timeline section called “Wishlist” visible to friends of friends, the “Collect” button saves to to a Collection called “Products” that’s visible to friends only, and a special version of the “Like” button will also add to “Products” but that’s visible to friends of friends.

 

The “Want” button adds a product to a Timeline section called “Wishlist” visible to friends of friends, the “Collect” button saves to to a Collection called “Products” that’s visible to friends only, and a special version of the “Like” button will also add to “Products” but that’s visible to friends of friends..."

Business Plan vs. Strategic Plan

Business Plan vs. Strategic Plan | Growth 2020 | Scoop.it

Over the past few weeks I have read articles also featuring this topic on my radio show and in group discussions. Is the business plan dead? Have strategic plans taken their place? Are they one in the same? Do you even need a plan to have a successful business?

 

Just like in business, I believe business plans and strategic plans must transcend old school convention and be used as a catalyst for start up, growth and the revitalization of a business.
