Almost a year later of previous use of this drawing and with iPhone 7 out and Galaxy 7 burning we continue the conversation about Instant Knowledge Generation and Device Oriented Learning. Are we surviving Information Overload?

Reducing Information Overload was done on 2011 to be used after the information overload presentation to emphasize the use of the iPad in E-learning. Oct 2013

Reblogged this on josetoons & scoutoons and commented:

This cartoon was updated after getting my first iPhone. Two years later I got an iPhone 6S+ with a bigger screen and still reducing information overload. Nov 2015

TECHKnowledge: Next Manager Challenges

techknowledge-manager-challenge-bw

Next Manager Challenges are a combination of personal, professional, and technology knowledge needed to be successful. We used this graph adapted from several resources related to self-awareness, change, learning styles, intelligences, and strategies. It is a visual resource to put these pieces together. We started following our Personal Leadership System® model.

SWOT. We started our exploration of these challenges by addressing the importance of our personal SWOT. We need to know our Strengths and Weaknesses to be able to find new Opportunities and be aware of future Threats.

Values. We explored personal and cultural values to talk about beliefs, ethical decisions, and priorities. Study of our values led us to have a better understanding of doing a personal SWOT analysis. Values provides the starting point to the Be-Know-Do-Have sequence.

Self-assessment. In order to complete our personal SWOT, specifically in identifying our Strengths and Weaknesses, it is important to evaluate ourselves. We can learn about our personalities and attitudes, and explore the different intelligences to find our fit.

Learning style. Another important component in doing our personal SWOT is to understand how we learn. Different methods and surveys help. Our graph uses some examples about visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners, It also mentions is we learn by knowing, doing, planning, leading or creating. When assembling a team, it is wise to have different kind of learners.

Change. This is a constant in life and we have to learn how to embrace it. How we orient ourselves to accept planned and unexpected changes. We need to evaluate risks and be prepared for emergencies.

TECHKnowledge. Emerging Technologies are vital for personal and personal performance in our workplace and communities. Embracing new systems, methods, procedures, and devices is vital for success and survival. The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is one tool that allow us to select proper technologies based on usefulness and easy of use . Learning fast about technology changes will increase our knowledge base.

Technology Management. Next Manager should have a solid foundation in business and technology concepts. IT is now embedded in all organizations and personal life. The TECHCitizen woks and function in front of several screens.

Global Management.  Besides Technology Management, a personal SWOT analysis will also help to explore our world and find global opportunities. Global Learning, Global Engagement, Globalization, and Global Management are some of the concepts that involve Global Knowledge.

TECHKnowledge Challenges for the Next Manager include more than these points. These ones focus on the person. Creating self-awareness and knowing us better are vital tools to perform better at home, our communities, and the workplace.

Widgets and Gadgets: From E-learning to M-learning and Beyond
Emerging technologies have allowed online learning to add interactive tools to courses. New web, media and mobile applications or widgets, and new devices or gadgets, bring innovative resources to the hands of students. Education is moving from e-learning to m-learning and beyond as hybrid methods are also being incorporated to both on-land and online courses. Our Web Media Lab (www.webmedialab.org) has been testing these widgets and gadgets applying both Technology Acceptance and Affordability Models to explore real usability beyond courses into real life. Wireless and mobile technologies allow users to be in a virtual office all the time.(ID #145/Track 2)
