I recently read two interesting reports on the state of globalization in 2019, one by The Economist, the second by the McKinsey Global Institute. Consider how to capture value from services. “Across multiple value chains (including manufacturing), more value is coming from services… To make this shift successfully, companies need to gain insight into customer needs, invest in data and analytics, and develop the right subscription, per-use, or performance-based service contracts.”.

The Business Value of Resilience

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Things go well until a new microbe enters - wreaking havoc on the now-defenseless inhabitants… Rather than design to keep all friction out of the system, we should inject productive friction at the right times and in the right places to build up the system’s resilience.”. Companies underinvest in training and skill development,… what if we designed [jobs] to be productive and valuable?…

There is first of all significant ambiguity in the terms “appropriate” and “well-designed”.

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract The growth and development of learning analytics has placed a range of new capacities into the hands of educational institutions. The ethics of learning analytics will therefore need to be developed on criteria specific to education. Individuals and firms must develop a ‘culture of integrity’ that permeates all levels of operations.” At the same time, it is argued that “Codes are not designed for ‘bad’ people, but for the persons who want to act ethically” (Ibid: 7).

Educational Research in Learning Technology

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

But community itself is a value, especially when it becomes possible to develop learning communities that span regions and cultures. I think the key point here is to note that not everything is designed to increase test scores. Also aka 'design research', where proving something works is all that it takes) - what's wanted? There are specific facilities designed for learning into which learning technology is expected to fit. 2019) which caught my eye.
