Why Your Passion for Work Could Ruin Your Career | The Creativity Post

Via Scoop.itLa brecha de la complejidad

Enrique Rubio: ¿por qué la ‘pasión’ podría arruinar mi vida profesional?, ¿qué importancia tiene la ‘pasión’ en la vida de una persona?, ¿es siempre beneficiosa?, ¿en qué consiste?, ¿pasión vs creatividad?, ¿pasión vs desarrollo personal y felicidad?, ¿pasión vs trabajo?, ¿qué clase de pasión poseo? ¿me proporciona satisfacción intrínseca mi trabajo?, ¿siento una necesidad compulsiva de trabajar o desengancho fácilmente y disfruto con otros intereses vitales?, ¿workaholico?, ¿autorrealización a través de mi desarrollo profesional?, ¿qué clase de ‘pasión’ promuevo entre mis colaboradores?  * http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Workahólico * http://generaciondigital.org/2011/08/29/hablemos-de-retribucion-emocional-iii-desarrollo-y-felicidad/

Curating Information and Data Sense-Making Is The Key Skill for the Future [Research]

Via Scoop.itLa brecha de la complejidad

Robin Good: The Institute for the Future and the University of Phoenix have teamed up to produce, this past spring, an interesting report entitled Future Work Skills 2020.   By looking at the set of emerging skills that this research identifies as vital for future workers, I can’t avoid but recognize the very skillset needed by any professional curator or newsmaster.   It should only come as a limited surprise to realize that in an information economy, the most valuable skills are those that can harness that primary resource, “information”, in new, and immediately useful ways.   And being the nature of information like water, which can adapt and flow depending on context, the task of the curator is one of seeing beyond the water, to the unique rare fish swimming through it.   The curator’s key talent being the one of recognizing that depending on who you are fishing for, the kind of fish you and other curators could see within the same water pool, may be very different.      Here the skills that information-fishermen of the future will need the most:   1) Sense-making: ability to determine the deeper meaning or significance of what is being expressed   2) Social intelligence: ability to connect to others in a deep and direct way, to sense and stimulate reactions and desired interactions   3) Novel and adaptive thinking: proficiency at thinking and coming up with solutions and responses beyond that which is rote or rule-based   4) Cross-cultural competency: ability to operate in different cultural settings   5) Computational thinking: ability to translate vast amounts of data into abstract concepts and to understand data-based reasoning   6) New media literacy: ability to critically assess and develop content that uses new media forms, and to leverage these media for persuasive communication   7) Transdisciplinarity: literacy in and ability to understand concepts across multiple disciplines   8) Design mindset: ability to represent and develop tasks and work processes for desired outcomes   9) Cognitive load management: ability to discriminate and filter information for importance, and to understand how to maximize cognitive functioning using a variety of tools and techniques   10) Virtual collaboration: ability to work productively, drive engagement, and demonstrate presence as a member of a virtual team     Critical to understand the future ahead. 9/10     Executive Summary of the Report: https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapolloresearchinstitute.com%2Fsites%2Fdefault%2Ffiles%2Ffuture-work-skills-executive-summary.pdf    Download a PDF copy of Future Work Skills 2020: https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapolloresearchinstitute.com%2Fsites%2Fdefault%2Ffiles%2Ffuture-skills-2020-research-report.pdf

Are Teachers the New Illiterates? – The Educator’s PLN

Via Scoop.itLa brecha de la complejidad

From Enrique Rubio… se nos exige ‘adaptarnos’ a cambios formales y burocráticos, sin ofrecer en general (probablemente por ser ‘invisible’  a los ‘ojos oficiales’)  una necesaria, y adecuada, formación  (personal y profesional) del profesorado, que nos permita formar a futuros profesionales y ciudadanos de una sociedad distinta de la que procedemos, interconectada e interdependiente (compleja). Desde mi modesto punto de vista,  quizás sea el reto clave para el sistema educativo actual.   From original post…I have been trying to write this blog for several weeks now.   Fig. from mirror news, uk.

Social networks require the right balance to come to life – Collaboration Atmosphere

Via Scoop.itLa brecha de la complejidad

From Enrique Rubio: Ecosistema de colaboración organizacional  vs modelo cynefin  vs intranet social.

‘it is in “the intersection” (portal corporativo, grupos pre-definidos, y sitios sociales) where we find the ideal balance of flexibility, context and business alignment for open collaboration’

From original: In the analogy, think of how the high gravity that exists closer to the sun and how it affects movement. The closer to the center the more rigid and formal everything is. By the same token, t…

Building a fact-based world view

Via Scoop.itLa brecha de la complejidad

From Enrique Rubio… SW ‘Gapminder’-Modelización visual de información estadística basada en hechos y su evolución temporal. Ola Rosling, Anna Rosling Rönnlund and Hans Rosling, desarrollaron el SW original, llamado Trendalyzer, que en 2007  fué adquirido por Google (al parecer, los creadores continúan trabajando en dicho SW). De gran valor didáctico su utilización, pues permite desarrollar habilidades claves informacionales, en particular pensamiento crítico, así como una aproximación al tratamiento de la ‘complejidad’ desde la modelización visual.   Gapminder is an independent foundation based in Stockholm, Sweden. Its mission is “to debunk devastating myths about the world by offering free access to a fact-based world view”. They provide free…

Aunque dándole excesivo protagonismo a las Escuelas de Negocio, oportuna y acertada reflexión acerca de… “En el contexto socioeconómico en el que vivimos, preguntas como para qué formarse, qué aprender, cómo hacerlo y quién debe acreditar esa experiencia necesitan de respuestas ágiles, flexibles y abiertas, a la altura de una sociedad tan incierta como dinámica que está asistiendo al desmoronamiento de los pilares sobre los que ha sostenido su modelo de educación formal”
