You're all totally true. I really agree with you. I would add that "followers" are (normally, except for fake profiles...) persons. And persons MUST be respected. I agree too with you, Sigrid, concerning the fact that influence could be better mesured by interactions. Thx a lot for your reactions. It's very kind from you! Have a great week.

How To Lead A Flat Army

How To Lead A Flat Army | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

A new kind of organization is emerging, capable of achieving both continuous innovation and transformation along with disciplined execution, while also delighting those for whom the work is done and inspiring those doing the work.

 

These organizations have moved the production frontier of what is possible. It is generating a new economy—the Creative Economy.

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, July 16, 2013 8:31 AM

Steve Denning interviews the author of the new book 'Flat Army: Creating a connected and engaged organization'. The Creative Economy asks for a new type of leadership. In the book Flat Army this is attributed within the connected, participative and collaborative leader, who stands among its people to lead them forward. Furthermore, the author Dan Pontefract adds Pervasive Learning and Collaborative Technologies to this Connected Leadership, which all will help "to establish the Creative Economy."

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, June 5, 2013 1:26 AM

Siemen's Principles of connectivism:

  • Learning and knowledge rests in diversity of opinions.
  • Learning is a process of connecting specialized nodes or information sources.
  • Learning may reside in non-human appliances.
  • Capacity to know more is more critical than what is currently known
  • Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning.
  • Ability to see connections between fields, ideas, and concepts is a core skill.
  • Currency (accurate, up-to-date knowledge) is the intent of all connectivist learning activities.
  • Decision-making is itself a learning process. Choosing what to learn and the meaning of incoming information is seen through the lens of a shifting reality. While there is a right answer now, it may be wrong tomorrow due to alterations in the information climate affecting the decision.

Several schools and districts have signed up for their own sections of the 5 Ws. We have been receiving multiple requests so decided to open up a new section on Tuesdays starting January 20, 2015.

 

All webinars are archived along with chat. Participants are part of a Community of Practice that stays open.  Option for 2 graduate credits or 30 PD hours. 

 

All new content and resources. We have been learning from participants and listening so wait until you see the new eCourse.

Amazon launches Storyteller to turn scripts into storyboards -- automagically

Amazon launches Storyteller to turn scripts into storyboards -- automagically | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Excerpt from review article by VentureBeat:
"Upload your script, choose some backgrounds, and magically created a professional-looking storyboard of your movie. Or the graphic novel version of your text-based anything.

Amazon Studios released Storyteller today to allow writers and filmmakers to quickly, easily — and cheaply — storyboard their scripts.

Roy Price, Amazon’s director of Studios said: “Storyteller provides a digital backlot, acting troupe, prop department, and assistant editor — everything you need to bring your story to life.”

You start by uploading a script to Amazon Studios — or by playing with one that’s already there. Then simply page through the script paragraph by paragraph. Storyteller will try to match up characters, props, and background with the words in each chunk of text, and it does a surprisingly good job.

But if you don’t like what Storyteller gives, you can choose from its library, or even upload your own custom background or characters. Currently, the software has a library of thousands of props, characters, and backgrounds..."

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 14, 2013 6:38 AM

As we move into a post-job economy, the difference between labour and talent will become more distinct. Producers and Improvers will continue to get automated, at the speed of Moore’s law. Those lacking enough ‘Talent’ competencies may get marginalized. I think there will be increasing pressure to become ‘Thinkers + Builders’, similar to what  Cory Doctorow describes as Makers in his fictional book about the near future.
