Global flows in a digital age | McKinsey & Company

Global flows in a digital age | McKinsey & Company | polycentric practice & various | Scoop.it
The movement of goods and services, finance, and people has reached previously unimagined levels. Global flows are creating new degrees of connectedness among economies—and playing an ever-larger role in determining the fate of nations, companies, and individuals. To be unconnected is to fall behind. A McKinsey Global Institute article.
Helen Chappel-Hayios's insight:

 

Report| McKinsey Global Institute" Within each type of flow, MGI finds that knowledge-intensive ones are growing faster than the labor-intensive or capital-intensive variety. Exchanges of goods such as aircraft and automobiles, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, and microelectronics, as well as professional services and foreign direct investment flows, are growing faster than others. In 2012, knowledge-intensive flows reached $12.6 trillion, nearly half of total flows—more than the combined 2012 GDP of China and Germany. While the last era of globalization was driven largely by sourcing low-cost production, the next era will center on the rise of the global knowledge economy.

The spread of the Internet and of digital technologies is transforming all types of flows and creating new ones. Global online traffic across borders grew 18-fold between 2005 and 2012, and could increase eightfold more by 2025."

How to Organize a Flash Mob

Helen Chappel-Hayios's insight:

Ther relevance of this entry, unlikely as it may seem, is that it is an example of polycentric performance..something really only possible ( in terms of time managment) with todays social media and online technologies.  How-To Flash Mob provides an expereinced step by step guide to cooridnating the work of groups, training them in different locations and coming together for performance only ( maybe with one rehearsal),  Much the same elements are likely to be involved in any polycentric production.

Digital media - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Digital media is a form of electronic media where data are stored in digital (as opposed to analog) form. It can refer to the technical aspect of storage and transmission (e.g. hard disk drives or computer networking) of information or to the "end product", such as digital video, augmented reality, digital signage, digital audio, or digital art .

Florida's digital media industry association, Digital Media Alliance Florida, defines digital media as "the creative convergence of digital arts, science, technology and business for human expression, communication, social interaction and education".

There is a rich history of non-binary digital media, computers, and their rise to prominence over the last couple decades.

Helen Chappel-Hayios's insight:

"Lars Qvortrup believes that the society that we live in is not an anthropocentric society, which is to say, there is no rational man in a control room pulling all the strings. He believes that we actually live in a polycentric society where there are many people control how things function. There are people with beliefs that we do not live in a single global society but many loosely coupled networks that influence and disturb one another."

Who Owns the Future? - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Who Owns the Future?

In Who Owns the Future?, Jaron Lanier posits that the middle class is increasingly disenfranchised from online economies. By convincing users to give away valuable information about themselves in exchange for free services, firms can accrue large amounts of data at virtually no cost. Lanier calls these firms "Siren Servers," alluding to the Sirens of Ulysses.

The sequence of conceptual information in instruction and its effect on retention - University of Twente Publications

The sequence of conceptual information in instruction and its effect on retention - University of Twente Publications | polycentric practice & various | Scoop.it

FREDERIK J. A. RANZIJN
University of Twente, Department of Education, Ensckede, The Netherlands

 

Abstract. Two experiments were carried out to study the effect of the sequencing of the information in  an instructional program. In both experiments, two different ordering principles were used. These principles were based on the relation between the to be learned concepts. The ordering of the information could be successive or simultaneous. The relationship between concepts is categorized either successive
or coordinate. It was hypothesized that a simultaneous presentation would show better learning results than a successive presentation if between the to-be-learned concepts exists a coordinate relationship. A successive presentation would lead to better results in case of a successive relationship. Results suggest that the definition of both types of relationships needs refinement. Further the results show that for
coordinated related concepts a simultaneous presentation is preferable.
