Using education for business learning (TED)

Our Comment:

Learn from education? Yep, but not in the way that you did in Years 1 to 10, 12, uni or post grad.

Learn from the way education is using technology.

Lessons about:

  • How to reach new audiences.
  • How to effectively teach your team (or even better, how to teach themselves).
  • How to grow new revenue streams.
  • How to create a motivated work place.

I am sure you can pick up even more than this from these lessons.

Your challenge is to spend the 1 hour required to listen, then allow your brain to ask ‘What if…’

Our free plug:

When we mentor Boards, CEOs and business leaders and owners, we look at things a little differently.

We believe inspiration comes from within.  Our role is not to give you the answers (although we are pretty good at coming up with suggestions – or so our clients say).

Our role is to get you thinking differently.  To challenge your status quo so you achieve greater heights in your business.

No matter whether you are looking to Build your business, Improve your business or Restructure your business, we think we have some pretty nifty ideas as to how you can achieve what you need.

What we’re learning from online education 

 Daphne Koller www.ted.com

This shows the development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) as a way to for people around the world to learn. 

Notice the concepts of staged learning and recall.  The results can be incredible and I predict our current educational institutions will be under threat to change or become irrelevant.

 

 The child-driven education

 Sugata Mitra www.ted.com 

Sugata is an inspiration in thinking ways of doing things differently.  He is also an inspiration in how he is bringing both new concepts and education to those who need it most.

You will be able to learn some interesting things applicable for your business and, you will appreciate how the world is changing very rapidly.

 

 Why massive open online courses (still) matter

 Anant Agarwal www.ted.com

Another take on MOOCs.  Yes, there is a learning curve as there is in anything new.  But, and this is the important thing, this concept is very new yet it is demonstrating incredible insights into learning and interaction And solutions

We are seeing the growth of numerous world based models and this is another example of how it is working to our advantage.

Can you learn the lessons and the takeaways?
