Work Live Integration – 23 and 1/2 Hours


Instead, a long while ago I have made the transition into what some people have been calling work life integration, where one of key words / concepts that has started making the rounds in the last few years, that is, flexibility, is gaining more and more importance and relevance as we move forward.

The Principled Approach

e-Moderation Station

A study from the University of Lancaster was carried out in 2003 among 17 schools in the UK, and was designed to look at how the use of ICT in classes affected learning outcomes, behavior and school attendance. They seem particularly well suited to the process approach to writing.

The 1-minute guide to integrating technology into teaching

One of the biggest challenges facing EFL (and other) teachers today is how to integrate technology into our classes in a meaningful and principled way. Integrating technology is not just finding a great new tool or idea and then trying it out. blended edtech integration tips

10 Strategies for Integrating Learning and Work (part 2)


In my last post I listed ten strategies for integrating learning with work. 10 STRATEGIES FOR INTEGRATING LEARNING AND WORK. Learning consultants cannot “design&# the learning outcomes of a CoP; but conversely no CoP can fully design its own learning. However, from the perspective of integrating learning and work, social media is a technical platform (like none before it) for sharing, collaborating and communicating while work is being accomplished.

How the Client Experience Defines the New ROI of Social Business – Finally, A New KPI in the Making


Measuring the usage of social technologies at the workplace is far easier than the significant impact on the overall business outcomes. There is also an opportunity to rethink how we approach these KPIs. Dan Pontefract , Chief Envisioner at TELUS, confirmed its employee engagement rates increased from 53 percent to 83 percent and that it correlated this to an improvement in business outcomes — a.k.a.

What makes Facilitating With Confidence different?

Viv Mcwaters

We provide no agenda (just start and finish times), there’s no training manual that we follow, no lesson plans, no learning outcomes, no presentations, no tables, no assignments, no answers. This is also a model for meetings and facilitation approaches.

Probes, Prototypes and Pilot projects

Chris Corrigan

As a result, I’ve been adopting a more disciplined approach to these three kinds of activities. The actual outcome of the probe doesn’t matter much because the point is to create an intervention of some kind and see how your context responds.

Doing Business with IBM Connections Workshop in Switzerland – hosted by WebGate

Some interesting factoids / implications / downstream outcomes were shared. Numerous participants mentioned the power of approaching IBM Connections from the frame of scenarios rather than features and functions. This new frame is the key idea in the book and workshop, and I was delighted that the approach resonated with so many. Today I presented the Doing Business with IBM Connections workshop in Switzerland, at the invitation of WebGate Consulting.

A new initiative supporting communities to develop digital assets

Social Reporter

The UK Government is wedded to implementing a digital-by-default approach to public service delivery, and is investing significant public funds in open and big data alongside cutting-edge technological innovation. There’s often a big gap between those working in innovative ways in communities to develop our physical assets of land and buildings, and those with the tech skills to use public data and online systems to develop local digital assets.

As the Knowledge Hub faces closure, might a creative Twitter mob help with re-invention?

Social Reporter

There were high hopes in 2009 that it would integrate with other social media, and also enable conversations with wider publics. The likely result of the current approach is that the Knowledge Hub will just close, or drift into some further iteration that will be less satisfactory than the current setup. However, as Carl says, hard times may require a change of approach.

Education Technology Action Group consultation


The common theme here is that at the level of policy relating to schools, the use of technology for education is being perceived as a separate, specialist area, rather than an effective and integral range of approaches and tools to support learners and learning communities. This isn’t, of course, to say that there is any shortage of schools and school staff making effective and creative use of innovative approaches that are supported, or made possible, by the use of technologies.

Thinking alone – crowd sourcing – tapping into the group brain?

Net-Map Toolbox

Now crowd sourcing seems to be at the other end of the spectrum, solving problems by tapping into the minds of millions, letting everyone who wants contribute and improve the outcome. That makes it possible to integrate more diverging views, knowledge from more different domains and something we vaguely call collective wisdom. But I wonder: Is it also the best approach to solving messy unclear problems, finding amazing innovations and unusual leaps forward?

First, Sean notes that by buying a Google TV box for a one-time fee or a new HDTV with Google TV built in, you are then not resigned to pay an extra monthly fee when pay TV providers decide to add new features like Web integration to their packages. Hopefully this will result in a win for consumers regardless of the outcome.
