A MOOC Delusion: Why Visions to Educate the World Are Absurd - WorldWise The following is a guest post by Ghanashyam Sharma, an assistant professor in writing and rhetoric at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. —————————————————————————————— Mapping the Knowledge Society As part of my work and research as a Google sponsored fellow at the Reuters Digital Vision program at Stanford University, and in cooperation with several colleagues from the private and social sectors and international organizations, we have developed a series of visual representations of processes, frameworks and ecosystems supporting the Knowledge Society and Human Development through Information and Communication Technologies (ICT4Dev). In putting together these conceptual maps, I have to acknowledge and thank the collaboration, feedback and suggestions from my Digital Vision friends and colleagues, in particular Steven Ketchpel, Margarita Quihuis, José Arocha, Mans Olof-Ors, and Sham Bathija. I hope these "maps" are of interest to others and can be put to use in the formulation of strategies for a significant impact of information and communication technologies (ICT) on the Sustainable Human Development processes and the construction of an equitave Knowledge Society.
Each person is inundated with 174 newspapers' worth of information EVERY DAY By David Derbyshire for MailOnline Updated: 10:30 GMT, 11 February 2011 From junk emails to annoying adverts, we spend our lives being bombarded with a constant stream of information. Now scientists have worked out exactly how much data is sent to a typical person in the course of a year. Monitoring knowledge (management): an impossible task? « The giraffe It isn’t an impossible task to monitor/evaluate (M&E) intangibles, knowledge or knowledge management (KM), but it requires a series of tough choices in a maze of possibles. This is what Simon Hearn and myself are discovering, trying to summarise, synthesise and build upon the two M&E of KM papers commissioned earlier, as well as the reflective evaluation papers by Chris Mowles. We are still at the stage of struggling very much with how to set the ballpark for our study. So this is a good opportunity to briefly share a blogpost I wrote recently about this very topic, and to share some preliminary thoughts.

During an economic downturn such as the one we are working our way through at the moment (2010), organizations are looking to make the most of their investments in their technological infrastructure, how to squeeze greater efficiencies out of their product development or production processes through automation, and how to leverage their technology to generate efficiencies. These efforts can take different organizations in different directions. For example, if your organization creates physical widgets on a production line, or if your staff are considered ‘knowledge workers’ creating products which are essentially ‘information assets’. Either way ‘knowledge management’ becomes more important in this economic climate.
14 Ways to Present Information Visually [This is an update of a popular post written by Ryan Skinner a few years back. We wanted to add a bit more value, linking to new examples and making new suggestions. Hope you like it!

Personal Knowledge Management Developing a conscious strategy for managing information to avoid feeling overloaded (information overload) is an important part of being a knowledge worker. While it can be said that access to web 2.0 tools such as social networking and social media contribute to information overload, I believe that they may actually enable us to organize and navigate our personal learning environments which may help us avoid information overload. Because we can customize most of our information inflows using web 2.0 tools, we have the opportunity to select the best possible channels of information. The key to doing this is through the filtering of information that we encounter in our daily lives and the curation of valuable information for sense making.

So what makes a guy a great guy and what makes him a passerby? Knowledge management Knowledge management (KM) is the process of capturing, developing, sharing, and effectively using organizational knowledge. It refers to a multi-disciplined approach to achieving organisational objectives by making the best use of knowledge. An established discipline since 1991 (see Nonaka 1991), KM includes courses taught in the fields of business administration, information systems, management, and library and information sciences. More recently, other fields have started contributing to KM research; these include information and media, computer science, public health, and public policy. Columbia University and Kent State University offer dedicated Master of Science degrees in Knowledge Management. History In 1999, the term personal knowledge management was introduced; it refers to the management of knowledge at the individual level. Research
