“Rice above the statistics”: using grains of rice for data visualisation

“Rice above the statistics”: using grains of rice for data visualisation | How to Create Awesome Custom E-Learning Graphics | Scoop.it
Statistics are a particularly useful source of evidence to help students form opinions and illustrate their arguments, but can too easily become meaningless numbers lacking in persuasive force (as Stalin infamously put it “One death is a tragedy. A million is merely a statistic”). An effective way to combat this is by challenging students to “guess the statistic” in advance of being given the data to generate an element of surprise or even shock when they are presented with the correct numbers. However, to impress these statistics more effectively upon the memory, it is worth getting students to then present them in a visually engaging way. Histograms and pie charts are a classic way of doing this, but an even better way is to use grains of rice to create physical representations of the statistics. Here is a fantastic exposition by the artists of Stan’s Cafe:

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

[PDF] The digital talent gap: Developing skills for today's digital organizations | How to Create Awesome Custom E-Learning Graphics | 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?

"Anabolic Running" book by Joe LoGalbo free download (.pdf). Sometimes summers can be busier than the rest of the year because the weather allows us to do more things with family and friends. It’s the time for vacations and that takes work. The summer is not—regardless of the cultural suggestion that it is a time of relaxation—an easy period through which to maneuver. Ask any parent who has had the kids at home for the last two months. Yeah summer can be tough on training, and weather is only the half of it. The good news is that a break is coming and the best weather that this region has to offer is a sign that it’s your turn to focus on you. The kids are going back to school and you are not expected to plan any more trips to the beach or plan vacations or plan anything else, for that matter.
