Surviving Information Overload 2016

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

Big Data – Tim Smith. #bigdata #internet – TED Ed Lesson

bigdatacapture

There is a mind-boggling amount of data floating around our society. Physicists at CERN have been pondering how to store and share their ever more massive data for decades – stimulating globalization of the internet along the way, whilst ‘solving’ their big data problem. Tim Smith plots CERN’s involvement with big data from fifty years ago to today.

Discussions:

Why big data is important in the creation and development of useful databases? What is the connection with business intelligence?

How big data is useful to solve environmental issues?

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.

How to combine technology and the outdoors to improve knowledge. We are all connected to people and nature. The university is outdoors.

1. Connected Learning = Social media learning. #socialmedialearning
2. Device Oriented Learning = Mobile knowledge. #mlearning
3. Team Based Learning = Share individual strengths for collaborative solutions. #teamlearning.
4. Outdoors Classrooms = Connect learners with nature. #outdoorsuniversity
5. Leadership Learning = Lead yourself and others. #youthleaders
