First there was Skype's new Translator feature which will be coming soon to a Skype app near you, and now Google Translate is adding Word Lens to their app as well! Very cool. I tried using Word Lens when it first came out, but didn't have much practical use for it. I will definitely have to try it again! 

 

It looks like companies are starting to understand the value of translation and localization a little more now, doesn't it? What will be the next one to join in?

Marta Rauch brought this to my attention on LinkedIn. I've been hearing more and more of this term,  "the Internet of Things" (IoT) more and more at conferences lately, and it does seem to be a growing terms to talk about how more and more devices from our daily lives are being connected to the Internet.  This is a good article to give you an idea of what it entails at a broad level.

How StoryTelling Helps Your Fans To Sync-Up With The Ideas You Want Them To Use

How StoryTelling Helps Your Fans To Sync-Up With The Ideas You Want Them To Use | Real Estate in Guatemala | Scoop.it

"A good story can make or break a presentation, article, or conversation. But why is that?"

Robin Good's curator insight, February 16, 2014 1:31 PM



Here is why storytelling is so effective and uniquely powerful.  


Bufferapp co-founder Leo Widrich has written, back in 2012, a very interesting and informative article on the topic. Here a few passages from it: 


"When we tell stories to others that have really helped us shape our thinking and way of life, we can have the same effect on them too.

The brains of the person telling a story and listening to it can synchronize, says Uri Hasson from Princeton:


"When the woman spoke English, the volunteers understood her story, and their brains synchronized. When she had activity in her insula, an emotional brain region, the listeners did too. When her frontal cortex lit up, so did theirs. 


By simply telling a story, the woman could plant ideas, thoughts and emotions into the listeners' brains."


A story, if broken down into the simplest form, is a connection of cause and effect. And that is exactly how we think. We think in narratives all day long, no matter if it is about buying groceries, whether we think about work or our spouse at home. We make up (short) stories in our heads for every action and conversation."



Truthful. Inspiring. Very useful. 8/10

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 7, 2015 6:12 AM

A couple of great finds from master Curator Robin Good. As he notes

 

"This is an interesting trend as in the past most tools to deliver educational content relied on the author creating and posting only his own materials. The fact that you can now include valuable content published by others opens up the gates both for the curation of lots of existing content into useful learning courses as well as for the issues of whether and how to compensate curated content from others"

 

Reading time: 5mins

Filomena Gomes's curator insight, April 18, 2015 9:57 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

New interesting tools make it possible to create online courses and full online learning programs, by drastically simplifying the design process while providing simple tools to curate and bring together valuable existing content already published online.

 

The first I'd like to bring to your attention is Classmill, which makes it very easy to create online courses by providing a very simple and intuitive interface and allowing the author to add with ease his own texts, as well as images, links and video clips coming from elsewhere on the web. Anyone can publish an online course and make it visible to everyone. Only those who register and join in can see the full contents and can participate in the integrated discussion area for the course.

 

The second one is Learnyst, which goes one step beyond Classmill by facilitating the creation of a full online school with multiple courses and the ability to charge for selected ones. 

 

Both tools are extremely easy to use, and allow the assembly of existing materials, whether owned or produced by others. 

 

This is an interesting trend as in the past most tools to deliver educational content relied on the author creating and posting only his own materials. The fact that you now can easily include valuable content published by others opens up the gates both for the curation of lots of existing content into useful learning courses as well as for the issue of whether and how to compensate curated content from others. 

 

This economic issue though, does not preclude tons of free high-quality content to be re-used and showcased in many new free learning courses and it provides those who want to learn with even more non-commercial alternatives to master their favorite topics. 

 

Takeaway: You are going to see more of these tools and more subject-matter experts create valuable learning resources by bringing together key relevant content produced by others while adding tangible value, perspective and context.

If you have a strong passion or expertise it's time to start thinking about building your own online school. 

 

 

Check out these two tools:

- Learnyst

- Classmill

 

Other curation tools for learning moving in the same direction:

- Gibbon

- Learnist

- Educrate

This is a great article brought to my attention by Craig Cardimon. As someone who knows she is "learning different", and as someone who is about to embark on a new learning odyssey starting next week into a topic she knows next to nothing about, this article rings true for me. I think this is true of any learner, both child but especially adult learners. This is important to keep in mind whether the learning is done as e-learning/m-learning, or done by conventional means. Take a look, and tell me what you think. --techcommgeekmom
