Ending The Myth Of Collaboration –

Ending The Myth Of Collaboration – | Screencasting and eLearning Wizardry | Scoop.it
The best organisational cultures are tolerant of the loner, the thinker. - John Wade "If I was you," said a colleague recently "now would be a very good time to involve customers, to get more people involved". No, I thought, right now that would be the worst thing we could do. Collaboration can kill creativity.…

Buzzword Decoder: Wireframing

Buzzword Decoder: Wireframing | Screencasting and eLearning Wizardry | Scoop.it
Picture this scenario: You, the instructional designer, are talking to a client about a new eLearning project. She describes an activity. You start to write down what she’s saying, but you stop yourself. Instead, you sketch out a series of screens. You sketch the same content as it would appear on a desktop screen (horizontal) and on a tablet or smartphone held vertically. She quickly realizes that she needs less text and a different graphic.
Mel Aclaro's insight:
"You can sketch the wireframe by hand, use a template (one that shows the different screen sizes and orientations, for example), or use a tool. “There are so many tools today to get started, from PowerPoint or Keynote to Marvel App to InVision to Proto.io to Adobe Experience Design,”

Learning Agility: Building Learning Organizations

Learning Agility: Building Learning Organizations | Screencasting and eLearning Wizardry | Scoop.it
Spoiler alert—this article will end with a call to action, asking for your help to explore a crucial issue that will empower L&D professionals to deliver real value: learning agility, learning to learn and unlearn at speed.

But first, here’s a quote about fish.

“In the new world, it is not the big fish which eats the small fish, it’s the fast fish which eats the slow fish.”

—Klaus Schwab
Mel Aclaro's insight:
"While traditionally our industry has focused on delivering 'event-based training,' this brave new world is calling—even demanding—for us to improve and expand our offerings. Just as other industries are transforming, L&D professionals must become experts in enabling rather than training. This involves designing learning ecosystems and using a range of strategies to support these dynamic cycles of experience and reflection."

For the First Time, Scientists Photograph Memories Being Formed

For the First Time, Scientists Photograph Memories Being Formed | Screencasting and eLearning Wizardry | Scoop.it
Scientists have achieved a new milestone in brain imaging: we have seen a memory in the process of being formed. Using brain cells from a lowly sea slug, which actually makes a good model for our brains, images were captured of proteins forming between the neurons. These proteins distinguish the memory as a long-term one rather than short-term, as the proteins solidify the memory in the neurons. This process had been suspected but not visualized until now.
