Full Disclosure » Blog Archive » Forget broadcasting, the future is narrowcasting | Blogs | - 0 views

  • Media organizations the world over are currently focusing on the future of their businesses. As audience and viewer attention fragments and the internet fuels a wholly different kind of information consumption there are many siren voices suggesting that traditional media business models are dead, or in some cases on life support. Rising print and distribution costs and flagging advertising are driving even flagship newspapers and magazines to slash their costs, jettison journalists and production staff, and in some cases, go entirely out of business. In Britain, television companies like ITV — once described as having a license to print money — are reconsidering their entire business rationale and, crucially, their future relationship with viewers and consumers. Yet this week the world’s largest multimedia news agency, Reuters, unveils what we believe will be the future of news dissemination — not broadcasting, but narrowcasting.

High-Quality Business Lists - Work with Nothing but the Best! - 0 views

  •  
    The quality of a business list can more than just fuel a campaign but also help it achieve success. For marketing campaigns that are heavily centered around using e-mail or direct mail, then a good list such as a mailing list or list of e-mail addresses of C-Level executives can really help to keep the campaign afloat and steer it into the right course.

Bringing the world to innovation - MIT News Office - 0 views

  • D-Lab, the project aimed to develop creative solutions to problems facing people in the world’s least-affluent countries — and then hoped those residents would embrace the solutions.
  • Awareness of D-Lab has grown in recent years, thanks in part to some prominent mentions: a popular TED talk Smith gave in 2006 and Time magazine’s selection of her in 2010 as one of the world’s 100 most influential people.

  • The program now employs about 20 people and encompasses 16 courses that reach about 400 students each year. Even though D-Lab does little to publicize its activities, staffers are increasingly hearing that this program was a major reason why participating students chose to attend MIT.
  • thanks to a major new U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) grant to D-Lab and MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning, D-Lab’s instructors and researchers will implement this strategy even more broadly — providing greater continuity to projects around the world, says D-Lab founder Amy Smith, a senior lecturer in MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.
  • with the new USAID support, “we can harness the alumni of IDDS as a kind of an extremely diverse and dispersed design consultancy,”
  • While some students have already managed to turn class projects into ongoing organizations — building better water filters in Africa, bicycle-powered washing machines in Latin America, and wheelchairs in India, for instance — the new funding should enable more such activities, Smith says, by “incubating ventures and training entrepreneurs.”
  • The emphasis has shifted,” Grau Serrat says, “more from designing for poor people to designing with poor people, or even design by poor people.”

    Another reason some students are applying to MIT. Undergrads are making a difference globally. "the innovative MIT classes and field trips known collectively as D-Lab, the project aimed to develop creative solutions to problems facing people in the world's least-affluent countries - and then hoped those residents would embrace the solutions." "The program now employs about 20 people and encompasses 16 courses that reach about 400 students each year. Even though D-Lab does little to publicize its activities, staffers are increasingly hearing that this program was a major reason why participating students chose to attend MIT." "All of D-Lab's classes assess the needs of people in less-privileged communities around the world, examining innovations in technology, education or communications that might address those needs. The classes then seek ways to spread word of these solutions - and in some cases, to spur the creation of organizations to help disseminate them. Specific projects have focused on improved wheelchairs and prosthetics; water and sanitation systems; and recycling waste to produce useful products, including charcoal fuel made from agricultural waste."

      It's time to change!
  • If schools continue to embrace the 1.0 paradigm and are outmoded by students that thrive in a 3.0 society, we can only expect continuous failure.

    Information is more accessible today than ever before. Even with the world at our fingertips and 24/7 access to experts everywhere, we find ourselves in a bind. We know there is great, free content out there that we could use to learn just about anything. We also know that for every great article or video on the Internet there are 100,000 terrible ones to beat it to the top of the search engine results. Seeded from this frustration and fueled with the mission to change the way people access and learn from Internet content, MentorMob is bringing sense to all of this disorganization of valuable information. Creating and editing Learning Playlists is a free and easy process. Not only does it show the world what you know, but it opens your knowledge to people who share your skills so they can help you refine it by adding and editing your Learning Playlist. Each Learning Playlist can be rated, bringing the best ways to learn to the top of the charts.

How to Instantly Fuel Your Sales Pipeline with Leads - 0 views

    Your clients are the lifeline for your business. Without them, you would only be sitting in one corner of your office, twiddling your fingers; provided you still have a business to run at this point. Simply speaking, no clients means no sales and no sales means no income. No income means no money to run your company.

Five Psychological Principles Fueling Gamification : Learning Solutions Magazine - 0 views

  • narratives developed around a learning activity make the activity more engaging and relevant to the learner
    • dsatkins1981
       
      How could we build content and narrative into an Escape Room to enhance the already value elements such as problems-solving and creative thinking?
  • leveling up should become more difficult as users progress through the material.

      Designers at Nintendo often say: the best games are simple to play, but difficult to master (i.e. Mario).
  • the brain can only handle a finite amount of information at one time before becoming overloaded.

  • Better learning happens when this occurs.
  • Gamification has been shown to relieve stress and clear the brain of distractions.
  • “If you play Angry Birds or some other game on your mobile or laptop, you are not thinking about what you are making tonight for dinner. You are thinking about what is going on in the game,” she says.
  • incorporate learning in that experience, it causes a hyper focus on the key learning point.”
    • dsatkins1981
       
      Some in the field of brain science are finding that multitasking is actually detrimental to task-quality. In other words, each additional task you undertake decreases the quality of your focus on all tasks exponentially and therefore decreases each resultant product. Hyperfocus for limited periods may be much more inline with the way the brain wants to work.
  • on a psychological level, losses can be twice as powerful as gains
  • Individuals will keep playing
  • relieves cognitive overload
  • forges an emotional connection
  • individuals would rather avoid losses than acquire equivalent gains.
  • an individual would prefer to not lose $5, as opposed to finding $5.
  • Users who earn or receive awards as a result of gamification do not want to lose them and, thus, will continue playing in order to retain them.
    • dsatkins1981
       
      Like sonic the hedgehog losing rings? I like it. On the other hand, what about the evil of our day: microtransactions? Where does that come into play and what are the risks of abuse by designers of gamification in education?

Techne » Mobile Computing and Education - What are the Conditions for Innovation? - 10 views

  • We use new technologies in innovative ways to solve problems. The bigger the problem, the more creative and innovative we need to be. It’s like the United State space program in the 1960’s and 70’s. The huge advancements in fuel cells, integrated circuits, or even freeze-dried foods were not the results of research units considering how space travel might work; rather, they were the results of a national imperative to put a person on the moon within a decade.
  • When we have a working, effective systems – like liberal education – new technologies like mobile computing find less context for innovation.

Education Futures - Designing Education 3.0 - 0 views

  • This is my take on the future of education.
  • The role of the corresponding Education 1.0 regime was to create graduates that would perform well in jobs with easily defined parameters and relationships.
  • The role of Education 2.0 is to develop our talents to compete in a global market with new social relationships, and where we are able to leverage our knowledge.
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • In this paradigm, information is no longer as important as the knowledge that’s created as we interpret information and create meaning. Increasingly, people are becoming more valued for their personal knowledge rather than their ability to perform tasks.
  • Society 2.0
  • Society 3.0 refers to an emerging innovation-based society that is not quite here, yet. This is a society that is driven by accelerating change, globalized relationships, and fueled by knowmads. In an era of accelerating change, the amount of information available doubles at an increasing rate, and the half-life of useful knowledge decreases exponentially. This requires innovative thinking and action by all members of society.

    This is John Moravec's take on the future of education.
