• A 3 Point Perspective on Learning & Development for Startups
    February 1, 2016

    It is by constantly up-skilling employees that they will grow and add more value. But investing huge amounts of time and money into employee learning is often not feasible for early stage startups. Then again, does L&D have to be a time & money sucking monster that corporate P&L statements may seem to suggest?

    Learning and training ARE different.  While developing an entire training program may be cost prohibitive, developing a learning culture may not be, and in fact, will likely prove itself quickly.  The ROI of investing in guiding teams into a safe mindset where mistakes and successes are shared fluidly could be exponential.  Imagine a online community of practice where teams can collaborate and learn from one another in real time.  How could this solve issues in problem solving and redundant solution finding?  How might that impact productivity and, more importantly, contribute to creating sustainable and manageable workloads for all team members?  In one fell swoop both productivity and talent retention issues are addressed.

    Is this something that should ONLY happen in schools?  What is the value in offering this to children in an extra curricular manner on a global village scale?  How would that change their 'decision-making' perspective.  Is this something that will empower youth as they grow into young adults?  International Baccalaureate programs offer the values but how much practical experience?  Mastery breeds creativity so thus, how valuable is it to offer this skill in early childhood?

  • Welcome to the least curated content site ever!
    January 23, 2016
    You've just entered the most unorganized libraries that might exist. It originated as mainly a repository through which I could trace my online research and then develop my own content based on that research. Then I heard about Scoop.It. Being a lazy human, I quickly learned that I could use it to discover and/or send online resources to this site, post on Twitter, and Linked In with one click. ->There went my plans to add original content. I will be blogging in other spaces but I left this up because; a. I still post to it, b. I can't wait to read back through this some lonely Saturday night, and c. it isn't hurting anyone. Browse if you like and/or find me on twitter @imightwriteone. Ciao!  
  • Social Collaboration Techniques to Enhance Learning | Origin Learning – A Learning Solutions Blog

    This is a great practical example of applying a pedagogy used in the classroom to create a more informed comparative and collaborative approach to creating a knowledge bank. 


    I am curious how this approach looked on the ground though.  Did it feel like more work or less work?  Did each individual contribute with interest?  What were the structures that allowed them to work with fluidity and efficiency?  And, most important, how did the story of their research look different that that told through a less collaborative approach?
