What’s the secret of success while innovating? | Motivation, Courage, Engagement, NEVER Give UP…

What’s the secret of success while innovating? | Motivation, Courage, Engagement, NEVER Give UP…

What’s the secret of success while innovating?

I hear you screaming already: I would like to be innovative, I even have some ideas BUT I am fearing about WHAT OTHERS would say and think about!! To be honest, NEVER look about WHAT OTHERS would say, innovation is something NEW and the new will GET up from the beginning NO acceptance, apart from a few which Professional-Development is Up-To-Date, and you probably (mostly) will GET even very hard criticism because people tend for “Listening to reply and NOT for understanding”!!

 

With ICT in EDUcation and while being (nearly) Up-To-Date with your Professional-Development while you have read the most important books about Modern-EDUcation from renowned researchers and by being online and using Social Media, especially Twitter, you certainly “feel” what MUST change to give OUR students, learners, BEST EDUcation. DO SO, I am pushing you if necessary, the world needs people with courage, motivation, engagement to bring Modern-EDUcation farther!!

And I am NOT talking about tools, Apps, THEY are ONLY facilitators; THE main so-called tool is YOU!!! YOU are modeling the statues (your learners, students) from a raw piece to a Master-Piece because of YOUR talents, knowledge, experience, Up-To-Date Professional-Development. It’s YOUR talent, like in arts, YOUR creativity who sparkles over to the learners, students with YOUR motivation, engagement, passion…

IF NO effort is brought in, NO results will come out!!

 

NOW, you know the secret ingredients (it’s like cooking…) and then comes the way of the How-To, there WE need to use ALSO Social Media, especially Twitter to connect with the students, learners!! Did I say connecting with students, learners on Twitter and learning together with the whole world; an OPEN place, NOT a closed classroom!!??? Sounds strange, isn’t it!??? Well, it isn’t strange at all, as it is PracTICE for the students, learners, to GET straight in to WHAT they will get used once in the workforce. It’s actually the BEST PracTICE they can get.

 

As on January 2018 I just have seen ONE Twitter-Chat (if you know another one, let me know please…) WHERE students, learners (average age 20 years old) were involved and it comes from Canada, the University of Ottawa, run by Pierre LEVY. Please check below some screenshots from the transcript of the Twitter-Chat:

.

#UOTM18-Gust MEES-1

.

By following that Twitter-Chat one can see and analyze THE way HOW students are thinking by bringing in THEIR Critical-Thinking, that shows their learning instantly… AND, the students use as well the <===> Twitter Moments <===> to make THEIR reflection about their learning while collecting different tweets from different persons on the Twitter-Chat <===> #UOTM18 <===> and even creating blog posts about it to reflect their learning. The moments and the blogs are made outside the <===> #SchoolCocoon (school, university…) <===> and Pierre LEVY is using this practice since 3-4 years already.

[Gust MEES] I had also already created a blog post about “Reflection” in Twitter-Chats in June 2016: Update Twitter Chats: WHAT To DO BETTER!?

Start text from PJ CAPOSEY Making Education Meaningful

So, as I see it in we have two binary options – stay unfinished or be completely miserable. Let me explain, if we attempt to do the same things for kids in 2028 as we do today we will be woefully ineffective. Very rarely is someone who is ineffective at their job fulfilled by their job and happy in their professional life.

Okay, 2028 seems pretty far away. I challenge you to consider if it is really possible to make slight changes for eight years and then have a monumental shift in years nine and ten. Probably not. So, what’s the point?

The change in our world is constant. Our kids are different than they were ten years ago and will be vastly different ten years from now. Our communities are changing. Our world is fundamentally different and will continue to evolve. In education we must adjust to them and to our world (more importantly their world) or we are going to face becoming dangerously irrelevant.

So, as educators we have one choice. One option to stay relevant. One option to compete. One option to serve our kids with integrity. And perhaps most importantly, one option to be personally happy. That option is to stay unfinished. Embrace change. Love the grind. Have a deep, hard, introspective conversation with yourself that it is never going to be easier to be great at your job. And be okay with that realization.

And I hope – deep in my soul – that accepting the fact that it is never going to be easier energizes you. You were not put on this Earth to be average. None of us were. You have chosen to be a part of the best profession in the world. We have the opportunity to change lives every single day. It is an awesome responsibility, but an even more incredible opportunity.

Read the full article here, please:

Concerning the students, learners from P. LÉVY’s different courses, please check below about WHAT they say:

 

.

By reading carefully the students, learners blog posts, tweets (Twitter posts), Twitter lists, Twitter Moments and Curation you will see HOW they can GET interested for their own learning by following ONLY a few rules to become digital citizens who know how to use the tools in a responsibility manner WITH understanding about WHAT they are talking and posting!!

Please read ALSO my blog post:

THAT is what I call <===> Modern-EDUcation, Modern-LEARNing PracTICE!! Wishing to see OTHER EDUcators, #TEACHers to copy this 😉

Curation: Tips And Tricks With Scoop.it-Rescoop And Tags

Curation: Tips And Tricks With Scoop.it-Rescoop And Tags

WHAT is Curation And What Is NOT Curation?

.

go through worse to get to better

.

.

Most of people know WHAT “Aggregation” is, it is the simplest way to share links, YOU just forward it! BUT that is NOT “Curation“, most people didn’t YET understood this and using “Curation Services” as platforms for ONLY sharing links! That is a lazy attitude, sorry to say this!!!

Curation needs a bit effort and people, especially Educators and Teachers, need to take THEIR time to evaluate the found information by giving it THEIR insight(s) to share with OTHERS! This is very IMPORTANT, as the human can so give BETTER results as a search engine (Google, Yahoo, and others…) as the proposed results are human based, reviewed links and articles.

.

SO… Knowing NOW what Curation is NOT, let us find out WHAT CURATION IS, please check the image below, who explains it BEST.

.

5-Steps-for-Content-Curation

.

I invite YOU also to check my Curation about Curation below, please:

.


How-To Use Scoop.it To Get Out BEST Curation From It

1ibdy1vf6wghd-n05dgl-aigainformation1First of all, please check the FAQ’s from Scoop.it itself to find out the basics of using Scoop.it here:

A question I am getting asked very often: WHY SHOULD WE trust YOU!? Well, that is a good question and it deserves ALSO an answer. Let me brag a little bit (sorry), a MUST to explain WHY: I started with Curation on Scoop.it on ===> waiting 2 find out <=== and I got honored as ===> Lord Of Curation <=== as well as I got awarded by a ===> Rewarded PRO account <=== from Scoop.it. I hope that this will give YOU some trust on what I am posting here 😉 Check below, please to find out:


BUT, let us go NOW for the essential, HOW can WE do BEST Curation? 

Well, it is actually NOT that difficult at all, BUT WE need to invest a bit of work 😉 With a lazy bone attitude WE will not come far, sorry. Good results need ALSO good preparation as well!

To do this, WE need first to understand (as mentioned already above) that WE have to give OUR insight when curating an article, thus meaning: WE need to read the article and to build OUR OWN view about it first, then curating the article and ALSO to publish OUR insight about it! Check below on practical examples, please.

Screenshots in English and in French about GREAT “Insights” from members of my “PLN” (Personal [Professional! Learning Network) to show YOU some practical examples which are worth to copy (the way how they did, not the text…) 😉

.

curation top tips

Image credit ===> http://curation.masternewmedia.org/ <===

.

I will give you some visual examples below who show you, so you can have a direct impression of it. No need to talk too much (what most of the teachers and educators do, sorry…), we go straight to the point…

.

Curation insight-1

As you can see in the above screenshot, there is some text and also some links linking to similar content… The above screenshot is taken from ===> http://www.scoop.it/t/securite-pc-et-internet?q=Why+%28And+How%29+Teachers

.

.

BUT the above shown isn’t YET enough! HOW will YOU find back later ALL YOUR curated articles and/or when YOU use the search engine in Scoop.it, HOW will YOU find other interesting curated articles? YOU need to index YOUR curated articles and this is done by the so called “Tags“.


The Tags And Their Importance

Let us first check about WHAT Scoop.it itself tells us about the “Tags“, check image and link below, please.

.

Scoop.it-Tags

Image credit ===> http://feedback.scoop.it/knowledgebase/articles/92998-6-6-3-how-can-i-manage-edit-delete-tags- <===

.

WE will look at some OTHER practical examples below as well.

Once built up some topics with your curation, you have already some articles curated under the same “Tags

What are “Tags“?

.

Tags in Scoop.it

.

In the above screenshot you can see used “Tags” from our example from http://www.scoop.it/t/securite-pc-et-internet?q=Why+%28And+How%29+Teachers. You will remark that there are a lot, and that should be as you will better find back the curated article, as well as there will be a better ranking in the search-engines…

.

Learn more about the “Tags” from Scoop.it here:

.

Having created your “Tags” on ALL your curated articles you are able NOW ALSO to post Tweets on Twitter with a specific “Tag”, see example here:

===> #Update YOUR #knowledge and/or get ready 4 #learning about ===> #Curation <=== Check ===> http://www.scoop.it/t/21st-century-learning-and-teaching/?tag=Curation

.


Re-Scoops And Their Importance

SO… WE were talking a lot already about the so called “Tags” in above mentioned content, BUT WE are coming back again to THEM, sorry 😉 Scoop.it allows it to “Re-Scoop” a curated article, thus meaning: taking over a curated article from somebody else curation to YOUR own curation, which is actually very easy to do with ONLY two (2) clicks. YOU might see on Social-Media Twitter people who are sharing a curation and that one could fit YOUR interests as well as YOU would like to have it ALSO in YOUR curation TOPICS, BUT HOW-TO do: check screenshots below, please.

.

Re-Scooping-1

Image credit ===> http://www.scoop.it/t/apple-mac-ios4-ipad-iphone-and-in-security <===

.

Click on that proposed link then and wait till the curated article on Scoop.it appears. NOW click on the green buttonScoop.it!” as shown in above screenshot.

YOU will get directed NOW to YOUR own Scoop.it account and YOU could chose onto which TOPIC YOU would like to save it, as shown in below screenshot. Make YOUR choice and save it.

.

Re-Scoop-Scoop.it-2

Image credit ===> http://www.scoop.it/t/apple-mac-ios4-ipad-iphone-and-in-security <===

.

Once selected YOUR chosen TOPIC YOU will see this, see pic below, please:

.

Re-Scoop from Scoop.it-Curation

.

===> Your post has been successfully published on “Link of YOUR chosen TOPIC” <===. Click NOW that link which will open the chosen TOPIC page.

.

Re-Scoop with Scoop.it and Tags

Image credit ===> http://www.scoop.it/t/apple-mac-ios4-ipad-iphone-and-in-security <===

.

Check out ALSO the video about it below, please:

.

.

NOW comes the moment of truth, did the curator from whom YOU made the re-scoop brought in the “Tags“? YOU will see this by ===> check screenshot below, please.

.

Tags_in_Scoop.it

.

As the MOST of people who make curation didn’t really understand the importance of TAGS, YOU probably will see this case empty or not really well used. The above screenshot is from my own curation and shows a lot of TAGS, as it should be. Let me explain a bit about WHY:

As I am multilingual, so I curate in English, French and German, that’s why YOU see also the “Tag” => English <= which I use when the curated article is in “English”. If the article is in French, I will “Tag” it with => Français <= and when it is in German, I will “Tag” it with => Deutsch <=. So I can find back easily my articles by category (Tags). The same for the other “Tags”, YOU need to chose them very wisely, as they will be a great help for later when YOU want to share multiple articles under ONLY one “Tag”, check example below, please:

.

TOPICS: articles regrouping with Tags

Check out ===> http://www.scoop.it/t/securite-pc-et-internet/?tag=country <===

.

Click the image above to find a practical example on How-To use the “Tags” to regroup different articles into ONLY one “keyword“. This is very IMPORTANT when YOU want to share those curated articles on Social-Media, like Twitter. Here below one example which I used on Twitter, see screenshot, please.

.

Using regrouping-Tags on Twitter

.

As YOU might see, I used the same link as in OUR mentioned example above. YOU can EVEN use Twitter then to ask YOUR Learners and Students above a chosen TOPIC, like I did 😉 And the right answer came straight, thanks 🙂 This is then ALSO a NEW possibility to propose to YOUR Learners and Students where YOU propose THEM lots of different articles regrouped under ONLY one “Tag”, BUT being part of a certain TOPIC… Start NOW for ===> Deep-THINKing <=== on How-To YOU can use it in YOUR courses 😉


PKM-Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management

By going into ===> Deep-THINKing <=== YOU might have found already that the right use of the “Tags” gives us ALSO another positive side affect, WE can use Curation combined with well organized and thought “Tags” as OUR ===> PKM <===!

WE will NOT discuss here,as I created already a blog post about it. Please check below:

.

Keywords for me to realize this blog post: Curation, Scoop.it, FAQ’s, Tutorial in depth, Tags, rescooping, SEO, NOT aggregation but Curation => difference <=, insights, PKM, importance of PKM, sharing Responsibility, sharing QUALITY, related links, investing first time to save time later ==> PKM <===…

.

Stay tuned for next blog post(s) 😉
