  • Mapping the Networked Future

    first_imgThis is part of the “Hi, AleX” series — advice to AleX NetLit about enhancing her levels of network literacy through day-to-day personal and professional social networking. AleX Netlit is a fictional persona created by Network Literacy Community of Practice to serve as a guide to Military Families Service professionals, Cooperative Extension educators and others seeking to learn more about using online networks in their work.More about Alex NetLit Hi, AleX:You’ve heard all this talk of flat worlds, emergent and open-source learning environments and you’re probably still a bit bewildered.With that in mind, I wanted to point you to another great networking resource: informal learning expert Jay Cross’s brilliantly conceived map of the new flattened learning and networking landscape. It’s got to be one of the best graphic depictions in terms of demonstrating what will be required of us as professionals in the 21st century.If two words best describe this new flattened learning environment they are freedom and informality. People are freer than ever to share ideas and seek feedback from others.The Web made all of this possible.The informal networks springing up across the world are also subverting traditional hierarchies. Consequently, the old plan-and-push approach  — the way you were trained a decade ago to develop and deliver your programming —is quickly being brushed aside within this flattened communications landscape.Learning is now emergent.  Yes, I know, that sounds a bit obtuse to a newcomer like you, but it strikes at something very significant and remarkable about this new world.  Knowledge is no longer being handed down from on high by information brokers.  Tens of millions of people, many of them rank amateurs and even novices, are using the enhanced opportunities for conversation and sharing afforded by these new networks not only to learn on their own but also to expand their opportunities for learning.They don’t need trained professionals or educators as they once did, because learning is now being constructed from the bottom up rather than from top down.Granted, people are doing what they’ve always done — forming communities of practices among likeminded people — only now these communities are encompassing considerably wider scales that often transcend state, national and even continental boundaries.  Participants within these networks are gaining wider and deeper perspectives as a result.Public and private entities are slowly beginning to get the picture.  They’re learning that the old plan-and-push approaches — conferences and workshops — account for only 10 to 20 percent of what their employees learn at work.We live in an era of “unconferencing.” Employers are discovering that their top performers are skipping conventional approaches — conferences and workshops — opting for informal learning opportunities instead. Yet, if you think about it, that stands to reason:  People have always learned the most through informal conversation, trial and error and simply associating and working with people they know.Networking is simply making all of this easier — not to mention, more fun.A few employers are even beginning to realize that networking and emergent learning are doing most of the heavy lifting for them in terms of preparing their employees for the demands of the 21st century.Finally, AleX, take special note of the section on conversations in the left-hand corner of the Jay Cross’s map.  In the end, that’s what all of this is about — conversation.  Cross is right: “Conversations are the stem of learning.”People love to talk and the frequent and open conversations that are incurring from all this talking within formal networks is driving innovation.Yes, I know you’re still a bit spooked by all this, AleX.  You fear that that networking will erode the daily conversations you undertake with valued clients — just understand that casual conversation is as vital and integral a part of this new communications order as it was in the old one.The only difference is that you’ll being carrying on conversations within an even wider circle of people, gaining insights that you then can share with more intimate contacts.So, relax, AleX, things are going to be fine: You’re soon going to discover that there is far more promise than peril in this new flat world.Author: Jim LangcusterThis work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License.last_img read more

  • Work Permit Rules To Be Adhered To

    first_img Two boys die, bicycle and van collide in St. Catherine, Jamaica Bahamas DPM Turnquest, as IDB Governor, Talks Technology and Climate Change Resilience at IDB Conclave Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppMONTEGO BAY, April 26 (JIS): Minister of Agriculture, Labour and Social Security, Hon. Derrick Kellier, has reiterated the Government’s stance on the issuing of work permits to foreigners to work in Jamaica.Addressing a ground breaking event for the launch of the Melia Braco Village in Trelawny on April 24, Minister Kellier said the Government will be unrelenting in its efforts to ensure that work permits are issued based on the guidelines governing the system.He said in issuing work permits, priority will be given to protecting the employment of Jamaican workers and will only be issued foreigners in cases where they are absolutely necessary.“The Ministry administers a rigorous work permit regime…(and)… when gaps arise in the availability of local skills for foreign investment initiatives, if we are not to frustrate the progress of these projects, then such skill gaps will have to be filled by workers from elsewhere,” Minister Kellier said.He noted further that the Government recognizes that the best way to ensure Jamaican workers are given priority treatment during the recruitment of workers is to create the necessary platforms for high level training for those persons.He added that his Ministry is in dialogue with a number of training agencies, with a view of ensuring that Jamaican workers receive the highest level training which will equip them for employment.“We are also working closely with HEART/NTA and Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO) to identify the skills that are needed and to train our workforce… (and make them) ready for employment in investment projects,” Mr. Kellier said.Meanwhile, on the matter of the Ministry of Labour and Social Security’s Workers Passport initiative, Mr. Kellier is encouraging the management of the Melia Braco Village to work with the Ministry in using the construction site as a pilot for that project.Minister Kellier, in admitting that the legislation to implement the workers passport is yet to be passed in Parliament, said the Melia Braco Village site would be a good place to start.“These passports will be the first step in guaranteeing that workers are competent and equipped to operate safely on work sites in both international and local markets. And while I know that this initiative is still in the early stages of development and the legislation is pending….our team will be working assiduously with Melia to explore the possibility in incorporating the workers passport as a pilot on this Braco site by the contractors,” he stated.Under a 15 year lease management agreement with the Government through the National Insurance Fund (NIF),Melia Resorts, a Spanish-based company, will be operating the former Braco Village Resort in Trelawny.The resort will become known as the Melia Braco Village, with 250 new rooms being added to the existing 225. The property is scheduled for opening in December 2015.
