Creating Your Personal Development Plan Why isn't everyone taught to create a personal development plan? Maybe because they are too busy thinking about their retirement plan? We are encouraged to have a financial plan and a career plan too, which is great. Learning and Performance Ecosystems: Strategy, Technology, Impact, and Challenges November 4, 2014 by Marc J. Rosenberg & Steve Foreman The increasing complexity of the world in which we live and work requires us to be more sophisticated in how we learn. We must be better prepared to learn on demand, with minimum disruption to our workflow and productivity. With this goal in mind, it is increasingly critical that the resources we put in place to help us learn—and ultimately perform—be as direct, effective, and instantly available as possible.
Making Thinking Happen Colored Post-its help Project Zero researchers map out the people, places, and ideas of the Agency by Design research initiative. Educational initiatives that emphasize making, design, engineering, and tinkering are gaining traction in schools and organizations across the country. While making-centered learning is not a new concept, recent and emerging trends suggest a new kind of hands-on pedagogy—a pedagogy that encourages community and collaboration (a do-it-together mentality), distributed teaching, boundary crossing, and a responsive and flexible pedagogy. Supported by the Abundance Foundation, Agency by Design (AbD) is a multiyear research initiative at Project Zero investigating the promises, practices, and pedagogies of maker-centered learning experiences. Our work is guided by three questions: How do maker educators and leaders in the field think about the benefits and outcomes of maker learning experiences?

Don’t Believe Your Customers! — Strategyzer Most of the teams started testing their customer assumptions with interviews and surveys. That’s a great way to get first rich customer insights. Yet, there is a danger in using this data alone to validate your ideas, because customers don’t always do what they say. They might tell you that they’re interested in doing something, but will they really? It’s not so trivial to go beyond customer opinions or their hopes and learn about their actual behavior.
International Centre for Educators' Learning Styles Robert Gagné’s seminal work is his conditions of learning theory. It includes five categories of learning outcomes and the nine events of instruction. Together, these two themes of Gagné’s learning theory provide a framework for learning conditions. Gagné’s work (1985) focuses on intentional or purposeful learning, which is the type of learning that occurs in school or specific training programs.
Why Self-Awareness Is the Secret Weapon for Habit Change More than we’d probably like to admit so many of our days are spent in a state of self-delusion, an internal monologue of justifying our actions, both good and bad. When we do something wrong, our evolutionary instincts kick in and we do anything we can to not acknowledge the obvious: sometimes, it’s all our fault. The examples should sound familiar: We get necessary and helpful feedback from a boss or colleague, only to snarl under our breath, but failing to realize the foolishness on our end. We become aware of our declining efficiency, so instead of treating the disease we treat the symptoms and we chug coffee only to crash an hour later face-first into our keyboard (and then we go searching for productivity hacks because our workload is too high).
Is Yours a Learning Organization? Leaders may think that getting their organizations to learn is only a matter of articulating a clear vision, giving employees the right incentives, and providing lots of training.

Organizations need to learn more than ever as they confront these mounting forces.
