Open Innovation 2.0

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In his 2003 book, Open Innovation: The New Imperative for Creating and Profiting from Technology , UC Berkeley professor Henry Chesbrough outlined this new model for business innovation. Plan - “Adoption and scale should be the focus of innovation efforts, not product creation.

Would you recommend your L&D department?

Jay Cross

I propose that CLOs adopt the Net Promoter Score® methodology developed by Fred Reichheld at Bain & Company and Satmatrix. Fred Reichheld, The One Number You Need to Grow, Harvard Business Review, December 2003). It’s less costly to keep a customer than to acquire a new one. Capturing L&D metrics too often entails asking the wrong people the wrong questions at the wrong time. Line leaders are a CLO’s most important customers.

Informal Learning – the other 80%

Thirty years ago an electronic calculator was a novelty that cost $100 or more. to filter, combine, merge, adopt new memes, etc). Others are costs to be minimized. At one time, functions like these would have been impossible or at least prohibitively costly to contemplate.

Innovation in Higher Education

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Tuition costs have risen much faster than the rate of inflation and keep going up, thus making it harder for them to serve the students most in need of their services. And if a postsecondary education is fundamentally affordable - meaning lower in cost, not just price - this will also answer the question of how to extend access by enabling students to afford a higher education.” Why are the costs of higher education so high?

[berkman] Yochai Benkler on his new book

David Weinberger

In 1968 Gary Becker said that we could model crime by thinking it of a pay-off model: the benefits of the crime vs. the cost of the penalty. Community policing has been widely adopted because it’s generally successful. Processes: Tyler (2003) showed that procedural justice correlated with internalized compliance. Yochai Benkler is giving a talk about his new and wonderful book, The Penguin and the Leviathan. (I I interviewed him about it here.). NOTE: Live-blogging.

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It was started in 2001, and the main spec came out in 2003. We won't find any faculty willing to adopt these tools. A more open, collaborative support environment has potentioal to lead wider adoption. We write these specs, but there's no adoption. We all agree, I think, it's vry slow adoption. We need to have all the lajor actors taling about how to implement the lowest-cost learning deisgn. More blog coverage from IMS in Montreal.

during the first 2 years of medical school" - PBL is not more effective, but more costly Two major components of PBL: a) explicit teaching of problem-solving strategies in the form of the HD-Method (Barrows & Tamblyn 1980) b) teaching of basic content in the context of a specific case or instance - proponents argue that students taught this way learn more meaningfully - "it is assumed" that i.

Cognitive load

But yes, to get buy-in you may go the strategy route; but that’s just to get your foot in the door, and it’s also to help the blank faces when they are given tools that aren’t designed to do a specific thing…and what it takes to get adoption (the difference between transactional and interactional). JOHO the blog : From ~5000 BCE to 2003 CE: 5 exabytes of information were created. Here’s what I learned via Twitter this past week.

Knowledge Mobilization and Knowledge Translation

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The unidirectional nature of knowledge transfer has often proved to be an ineffective way to ensure adoption and implementation of research results ( Landry, Lamari and Amara, 2001 )." 2003 )." and we would probably want to adopt another approach with respect to research and its application as well. 2003) write, "kowledge translation. Knowledge Mobilization, though it has a different history, adopts the same gap-based analysis.

[berkman] The MoveOn Effect

David Weinberger

Theda Skocpol in her 2003 book Diminished Democracies said that we need to look at the displacement of cross-class membership federations by professionally-managed advocacy. A group like MoveOn is sustainable because it has (1) zero-cost scaling (costs about the same to send 5M emails as 5 emails), (2) A/B testing (tuning by seeing the effects of variations in the email), and (3) headline chasing (targeted, timely appeals). Existing advocacy orgs have high overhead costs.

IMS Curriculum Standards Workshop

Founded in late 2003 and was focused on B2B provision. There is a weakness in the K-12 education market, that is stopping innovation and costing money. Formula: technical model + business model + adoption = successful model. Adoption We have content-neutral platforms (eg. IMS members, also AB clients, have already adopted a small piece of the overall solution, the AD GUID. There was Learning design, but it wasn't really adopted by providers.

The Tech, the Cream, and the Clear…

Andy McAfee

Even if the supposedly anonymous results of all 104 players who tested positive in 2003 are revealed, there will still be more questions than answers. Rosenheck realized that this lack of 100% adoption opened the door to a clever test of steriods’ impact, a test that didn’t depend on knowing or even guessing who the users were. This is exactly what we’d expect to find it IT were powerful, and if not all firms were equally good at adopting or exploiting it.

Privacy, Security and Trust: Challenges for the Intangible Economy

It costs us money to go through these exercises - they all charge. 60 percent of hackers targeted financial institutions in 2003. Ontario, for example, is adopting a system. Summary of a talk by Jim Robbins, EWA Canada , at the IFIPTMA Conference in Moncton. Let me outline what I would like to talk about. Near-term opportunities. How do I as a paranoid security person deal with all the baggage I bring to the discussion?

Education, Technology and Myth

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

One example is research which understands technological innovations as being "disseminated" throughout a population (often the faculty at a university, as it happens; e.g. Mahony & Wozniak, 2005 ; Bull et al, 2002 ; Garofoli & Woodell, 2003 ; PT3 2002 ). For example, the theories that describe the 'innovators' and the 'early adopters' talk sometimes about a gap separating these early users and the mainstream user. This approach results in a net increase of costs.

Content Delivery Networks

At the OS level, Akamai started with Red Hat Linux and, over time, have built in Linux performance optimizations and eventually created a ‘secure OS’ derived from 2003 Linux that is ‘battle hardened’. This is increasing some costs.

the cognitive transaction costs) do not impede the collaboration process. Seeback and Kirschner deemphasize this result by mentioning, "But the negatives include lower scores on basic science tests, more study time and a pattern of ordering significantly more unnecessary tests at a much higher cost per patient with less benefit." In recent years, many groups of international researchers located primarily in Europe and the United States have adopted CLT as a theoretical paradigm.
