Partnering Resources

And so, over the last ten years I’ve been searching for more and more ways to make networks accessible because I think they’re very important, especially for non-profits that are so much dependent on their extended networks in order to survive.

Microsoft Whiteboard

Using pen, touch, and keyboard, you can jot down notes, create tables and shapes, freeform drawings, and search and insert images from the web.

Improving Personal Capability to Embrace New Ideas

Michael Sampson - Currents

Search for expertise on Office 365, instead of asking someone nearby. We held a push-up competition several years ago at my house. Some of my sons could easily do 20 push-ups, but one in particular couldn’t do any (he was … 7?).

Shopping for Inspiration

Start with a search on Meetup. Learning what others have done with the new tools and resources available to them provides inspiration and challenge on what could be possible in your work, team and organisation. I call this shopping for inspiration.

Skills for ‘Being’ in a Digital Age

Jenny Connected

One can see a river as restlessly searching out its path across the landscape, but in fact no activity is taking place in the sense that there is no will involved. I have been puzzling over George Siemens ’ idea that learners need to develop ‘being skills’ if they are to cope with what it means to be human in a digital age. George discusses this with Neil Selwyn in an interview recorded for Monash University, Australia, Faculty of Education.

Identifying Dark Data in non-OCR’d Images

Michael Sampson - Currents

For an organization to comply fully with DSARS or data return, erasure or portability requests, it needs to be able to search its DMS for all relevant documents. The firm ended up storing large amounts of personal data that was effectively invisible to search technology, putting the firm at risk of non-compliance. The new European data protection legislation goes into effect next Friday. It’s going to be incredibly interesting to see how militant its enforcers play the game.

Joitske Hulsebosch

I just went to Google and searched for things like: Do you need a management structure? Every month I read a management book. I am very curious about learning in self-managing organizations. How is this organized? Is self-management also self-directed learning? In April, therefore, I have read the much talked-about book by Frederic Laloux about new ways of organizing ( reinventing organizations ).

So go directly to guidiance.com, not through a search engine. Microlearning is a trend in online learning, so the tool of the month is a microlearning tool: Guidiance. Microlearning originated from the idea of learning on the fly, via your mobile.

Mathemagenic

Mother tongue and identity

Mathemagenic

A quick search on “mother tongue” and “identity” brings a bunch of interesting things to read, but I shouldn’t now: it’s late in the night and our suitcases for Russia are not packed yet.

It is such arrogance to be searching for “intelligent life” on other planets, when it is clear it is swirling around us, everywhere, in the oceans, in the forests, and in the skies above us, all of which our “intelligent” species is despoiling and desolating.

The “Other” Consideration of Collaboration Tools; Welcome to the New World of GDPR

Michael Sampson - Currents

And if you or your organisation does anything with the personal data of European citizens – regardless of where your organisation is located in the world – you need to know about GDPR – the “General Data Protection Regulation” released in May 2016 and due to go into force from late May 2018. Collaboration tools provide amazing capabilities for helping people work together across time and space, and selecting the right tools for your organisation is important.
