Augmentez votre productivité et votre efficacité avec le mind mapping! | Prenez le temps de découvrir ce précieux outil et gagnez en efficacité tout le reste de votre vie! An SOA, BPM, Decision Management and Cloud Computing Guide for t How To Set Up A Google Store In Minutes Last week, Google released yet another gadget that may win them friends with small business owners. It’s called the Google Checkout store gadget and it essentially allows you to use Google Checkout and Google Docs to to easily create your own online store in a matter of minutes. What makes the gadget especially interesting is that because it’s tied to a Google Docs spreadsheet, small business owners can keep product inventory without having to use another third-party program like Quickbooks. Something many of us can probably appreciate. To install the gadget on your site or blog, Google outlines three simple steps. 1. And that’s it. This is really a great new gadget from Google, especially if you’re one of the many aspiring merchants or SMB owners who were intimidated by the thought of creating your own e-commerce store. What I really like is how much this lowers the bar to entry for merchants to start up. Do practice some caution, though. What do you think? More in: Google

The New Cartographers: The rise of mapping & augmented intelligence Every year the Cartography and Geographic Information Society holds a competition – the equivalent of the Academy Awards for maps — for the best map of the United States. While it’s often won by one of the major players in the mapping world, like the US Census bureau, in 2010 it was won by a one-man shop run by David Imus of Eugene Oregon. Imus’s map differed not just in the scale of operation, but in the very way he went about constructing it. Traditional map-makers make use of algorithms to position labels, size towns and arrange points of interest, and they farm out the rest of the work to teams in India to manually fill in. While Imus’ map was constructed on a computer it didn’t use algorithms, leading to Imus toiling 6,000 hours, 7 days a week, for two years, obsessing over font types, state boundary colors and things like what symbol to use for airports. Imus, his map and his technique for producing it, seem like an anachronistic throw back to a 1950s world of exacto knives.

The Paradox of the Information Age Business Models | IT THOUGHT Today, I came across a fascinating discussion about Information Age business models at the Harvard Business School Publishing website. It encapsulates the entire paradox of doing business in the Information Age – do you use the wonderful processing power today to turn old ideas out quicker at low cost or do your innovate and produce new ones even though they may not be price competitive. Both can be profitable uses of today’s technology and approaches to doing business, but one is obviously easier than the other, and unfortunately stifles and threatens the other economically. Harvard Business Publishing: The Best Business Model in the World by Umair Haque Everybody’s searching desperately for business model innovation: Detroit, newspapers, record labels, banks. No market is left untouched, no value proposition sacrosanct.Yet, the best business model in the world is also the simplest : make stuff that’s insanely great. What do you think?

Creating Concept Maps A concept map is a picture of our understanding of something. It is a diagram illustrating how sets of concepts are related. Concept maps are made up of webs of terms (nodes) related by verbs (links) to other terms (nodes). Concept maps provide a useful contrast with essays. Examples and a good description such as those described by Gowan and Novak (in Learning How to Learn) are helpful for understanding concept mapping. The first step in concept mapping is to generate lists of words related to the main concept. The second step is to edit the list. The third step is to define the terms on the edited list. A useful exercise is to create a matrix listing all the terms down one side and repeating the list across the top. Another important step is ranking of the terms. One approach is to ground the primary concept within a sentence that also contains the other two or three most important terms. Another approach, is to look for a structure or model to underlie the concept map. Download PDF

Knowledge Integration Map A Knowledge Integration Map (KIM) is a discipline-specific form of concept map. Concept maps are a form of node-link diagram for organizing and representing connections between ideas as a semantic network. KIMs consist of concepts and labeled arrows. Different from traditional concept maps, KIMs divide the drawing area into discipline-specific areas, for example in biology into genotype/phenotype. Overview[edit] Knowledge Integration Map (KIM) example Knowledge Integration Maps (KIMs) have been developed at the University of California, Berkeley by Beat A. KIMs are based on the principles of Knowledge Integration.[3] The knowledge integration framework suggests that scaffolding students to better integrate their ideas will support conceptual changes in students’ understanding. Characteristics of Knowledge Integration Maps[edit] Discipline-specific levels: This characteristic combines aspects of concept mapping with aspects of Venn diagrams. Use of Knowledge Integration Maps[edit]

Concept map An Electricity Concept Map, an example of a concept map A concept map or conceptual diagram is a diagram that depicts suggested relationships between concepts.[1] It is a graphical tool that designers, engineers, technical writers, and others use to organize and structure knowledge. A concept map typically represents ideas and information as boxes or circles, which it connects with labeled arrows in a downward-branching hierarchical structure. Overview[edit] A concept map is a way of representing relationships between ideas, images, or words in the same way that a sentence diagram represents the grammar of a sentence, a road map represents the locations of highways and towns, and a circuit diagram represents the workings of an electrical appliance. Concept maps were developed to enhance meaningful learning in the sciences. Differences from other visualizations[edit] History[edit] Various attempts have been made to conceptualize the process of creating concept maps. Use[edit] See also[edit]

Mind map A mind map about educational technology A mind map is a diagram used to visually organize information. A mind map is hierarchical and shows relationships among pieces of the whole.[1] It is often created around a single concept, drawn as an image in the center of a blank page, to which associated representations of ideas such as images, words and parts of words are added. Major ideas are connected directly to the central concept, and other ideas branch out from those major ideas. Mind maps can also be drawn by hand, either as "rough notes" during a lecture, meeting or planning session, for example, or as higher quality pictures when more time is available. Mind maps are considered to be a type of spider diagram.[2] A similar concept in the 1970s was "idea sun bursting".[3] Origins[edit] The semantic network was developed in the late 1950s as a theory to understand human learning and developed further by Allan M. Popularisation[edit] Guidelines[edit] Uses[edit] Research[edit] Features[edit] Cours de cartes conceptuelles Une carte conceptuelle (ou schéma conceptuel, concept map en anglais), dont les variantes sont la mind map, carte des idées ou carte heuristique, est un diagramme qui représente les liens entre différents concepts. Elle peut être également appelée schéma de pensée, carte mentale, arbre à idées ou topogramme. La différence entre une carte heuristique et une carte conceptuelle est que cette dernière relie un ensemble de concepts entre eux par des lignes orientées et qualifiées (est un composant de.., favorise).

La révolution mindmapping est en marche La révolution MindMapping est en marche. Le MindMapping porte différents doux noms… Les universitaires l’appellent « cartes ou schémas heuristiques »,Les professionnels « cartes cognitives »,Nos cousins québecquois « cartes mentales », Nous en avons rajouté une couche avec une approche innovante centrée sur les usages professionnels du mapping avec le « Map Management ». Tout cela désigne une même approche : celle de la représentation visuelle de la connaissance basée sur les travaux très sérieux de Tony Buzan (« Mind Map Dessine moi l’intelligence » dont la 1ere version date de 30 ans) à la croisée des sciences sociales et des neuro-sciences. Le mindmapping est une méthode d’organisation de sa pensée et de ses connaissances, un outil de créativité et de productivité personnelle révolutionnaire… basé sur le fonctionnement réel de notre cerveau.
