11 Free Mind Mapping Applications & Web Services Mind mapping is a way of taking notes, capturing ideas, exploring concepts and breaking down information into a more readily understood format. It’s a place where visual representations and written representations of things merge to create something that is more natural to the mind; it works with and represents the way we think, where as paragraph-based text is not representative of the thought process at all. There are a million and one uses for mind mapping. Hacking Knowledge: 77 Ways to Learn Faster, Deeper, and Better If someone granted you one wish, what do you imagine you would want out of life that you haven’t gotten yet? For many people, it would be self-improvement and knowledge. Newcounter knowledge is the backbone of society’s progress. Great thinkers such as Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, and others’ quests for knowledge have led society to many of the marvels we enjoy today.
The system is failing, hack the system We live in an unsustainable world. Our climate is warming. Our food system is failing. Our clean water sources are drying up. Workplace Learning: The Individual’s Perspective A few weeks ago I published a series of posts that looked at how we learn at work and how to support these different ways of learning. This was a very L&D-centric view of workplace learning, with training at the centre and the outer – and larger – concentric circles containing the other ways of learning at and for work. In this post, however, I want to consider the Individual’s Perspective of Workplace Learning. Using Github as a Knowledge Base — TeamSnap Developer Portal The Search for a Knowledge Base Google reports 109,000,000 results for the search query "Knowledge Base". 65,300,000 are returned for "Knowledge Base Software". As a software developer, that ratio strikes me as about right - developers love re-inventing the wheel and I enjoy tongue in cheek intros for blog posts. ;-) So, as the TeamSnap engineering team continues to grow from a humble base of a handful of developers and LOC's under our belts to a more mature organization, it was time for us to make a decision about how we wanted to try and capture our internal knowledge in a way that was easily accessible and digestible (knowledge consumption) while still being reasonably easy to contribute to and search (knowledge documentation).

Visual Thinking Evolution A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Especially in British English, the terms spidergram and spidergraph are more common, but they can cause confusion with the term spider diagram used in mathematics and logic. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid to studying and organizing information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing. The elements of a given mind map are arranged intuitively according to the importance of the concepts, and are classified into groupings, branches, or areas, with the goal of representing semantic or other connections between portions of information.
Self-University Week / AUTODIDACTIC PRESS - lifelong learning advocate Self-University Week September 1-7 Autodidactic Press has sponsored Self-University Week since 1989. It is our intention to continually expand this celebration until the value of lifelong learning is indelibly etched into the national consciousness. Chase's Annual Events lists the first seven days of September as Self-University Week. The purpose of Self-University Week is to remind adults (in or out of school) that each of us has a responsibility to help shape the future by pursuing lifelong education.
Your Next Job Application Could Involve a Video Game Brittni Daron jumped through a lot of hoops before she landed her job as a solution consultant at Oracle. At the tech giant, as at other firms in Silicon Valley to which she applied, she endured weeks — and occasionally months — of phone interviews, in-person interviews, mock presentations, personality tests and technical tests for both the skills she claimed to have and those she didn’t. This might sound a little ridiculous, but it’s not unusual. I’ve met lots of job seekers in the last few years who underwent a similar form of H.R. torture — spelling quizzes, math exams and oddball brainteasers (“If you were a pizza-delivery man, how would you benefit from scissors?”) — only to walk out of the interview room wondering what they’d really just been tested for.
How do YOU learn at work? One of the early tasks that the learning professionals in my L&D Challenge undertake is to consider how they themselves learn at work. It is clear from what they share with the group that they learn in a multitude of ways – and that very little of it happens through conventional trainingit happens both inside and outside the workplace, andit is a continuous, ongoing process not a series of intermittent events. I’ve plotted some of the key ways on the diagram below. But it is not just those who are undertaking the Challenge who are learning very differently, it is also very clear from the results of my 9 year Top 100 Tools for Learning survey that this has been the case for many people for sometime now. Furthermore the results of my Learning in the Workplace Survey (which has now been taken by over 5,000 people worldwide) show that they rank conventional training and e-learning as the least valued way of learning at work.
How to CPU Mine X11 Algorithm Coins - CPU COIN LIST While GPU mining is usually the death of CPU mining, the X11 algorithm does not give the GPUs a large advantage over CPUs. These are instructions to CPU mine X11 algorithm coins on a pool with Windows 64-bit and have the coins deposited to the client/wallet on your computer. These instructions will work on all X11 coins, you just need to get the wallet for your coin. CLIENT INSTALL – The best source for the client/wallet is usually from the coin’s announcement thread on Bitcointalk. If the coin is listed on the site already, the thread is listed on that coin’s page. Illustration January 16, 2013 by aliceangus · 2 Comments In the last few months I’ve been working on Hidden Families, a project with families with someone in prison. The project, run by by Lizzie Coles Kemp of the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway University of London, was trying to find out how to improve the way information is made available to families, because people sometimes don’t or can’t engage with support services. The hardships families experience are diverse;- travel, costs of visiting, the huge distances to visit,the stress of uncertain weather and travel conditions that might cause someone to be late and miss their visit, bringing children, access to pension, welfare and benefits advice, sentence planning, prisoner safety and welfare, being stigmatised and outcast, and not expecting help or having the ability to improve the situation.
How to Learn on Your Own: Creating an Independent Scholar Resource Plan One of the most challenging and gratifying parts of learning alone is the opportunity to search for and select your own learning material. Students in traditional classrooms usually don’t get to decide how they are going to master course content. Instructors decide for them in the form of textbook selection, quizzes, tests, group projects, etc.
The tribe or the person? A parade of tourists is going to walk past your store today. Each is a separate opportunity for you to tell a story, to engage, to make a sale. A connected community of readers is going to read what you wrote today. A cultural shift will occur among a small group of people because they will share, discuss and engage with each other about what you wrote. Here's the key question: are you trying to change an individual or are you trying to incite/inspire/redirect the tribe? Direct marketers traditionally deal with separate events.
