Social Intranets: Evolution or Revolution? | techbubblesblog There has been a lot of talk about the use of social media in corporate intranets lately. As more organisations implement social technologies to improve their internal communications and enhance engagement, we set out to explore the pros and cons of this movement. Intranets are private organisational networks that support part of the IT infrastructure as well as internal communication and collaboration and are, more often than not, protected from unauthorised external access. Intranets have gone through many evolutional stages. They started as simple web pages with contact details, moved on to corporate bulletin boards with online access to employee directories and evolved to portals with advanced search facilities, internal email systems, personnel information and HR access.

November 28, 2011 By: Carmen Hamlin in Effective Teaching Strategies I’ve long been an advocate of student-centered learning and approaching material from a variety of perspectives. We hear so many buzzwords describing the ways we should teach or the ways our students learn, and we deal increasingly with issues of plagiarism and academic dishonesty.

Análisis de la primera encuesta “seria” a docentes sobre la Escuela 2.0 En el III Congreso Escuela 2.0, el catedrático de Tecnología Educativa de la Universidad de La Laguna, Manuel Área, presentó los primeros resultados de una encuesta a 4500 docentes para recabar su opinión sobre el plan Escuela 2.0. Esos datos iniciales los podemos encontrar en la siguiente presentación: Antes de empezar a cuestionar los resultados de la encuesta (ya que para mi las encuestas tienen siempre un valor relativo y, más aún cuando tratan de temas tan controvertidos como puede ser el caso del plan Escuela 2.0), lo que me gustaría destacar es si la masa muestral que se está usando en la misma es significativa, ya que hablar de 4500 docentes, cuando la cantidad de docentes en España ronda los 700000 no llega ni al 1% (ya que estaríamos hablando de un porcentaje del 0,6%).

We spend a lot of time with our wikis. It’s something of an occupational hazard. So it makes sense that we’ve figured out a few techniques and shortcuts to make our work easier and better. Once a month, we like to share some of those tricks we’ve learned with you. Or just turn you on to some features that we think are cool and you might not have thought about using yet. But if you’re not specifically looking for a way to do some exact, specific thing, there’s a chance you might not catch one of these posts.

Synthesis:Keeping to a rigid sequence in the implementation of the learning process is not a guarantee of a learner’s full attention or comprehension.
