Portable Job Benefits [...]

Yeah, says me 13 years into free-lancing. I rely on the ACA for access to health insurance, and on the for a place to invest retirement money. > For workers, the gig economy offers the tantalizing prospect of greater opportunities for entrepreneurship, flexible jobs, and a variety of careers. But turning that promise into reality will take a major overhaul of America...

 

The Fourth Industrial Revolution [...]

I am interested in optimistic thinkers. > As automation substitutes for labor across the entire economy, the net displacement of workers by machines might exacerbate the gap between returns to capital and returns to labor. On the other hand, it is also possible that the displacement of workers by technology will, in aggregate, result in a net increase in safe and rew...

 

Jarche’s Deliberate Practice [...]

  Hoping that I can see this image even after the course ends. It's important for me to reflect on how un-deliberate I've been regarding Personal Knowledge Management in the past. I want to use this Wikity to learn to curate my thoughts and to constructively address the work of others....

 

Criticism [...]

In the class, @hjarche has challenged us to be critical in public ... thoughtful but critical. I am surprised about how nervous I am. It's so much easier to retweet a thought, or even to reflect on another's thought. But I'm pretty sure he is right that thoughtful criticism within one's network is crucial. How else will I know if my ideas are only half-baked unless s...

 

Government and Future Work [...]

Interesting talk between Kara Swisher and Bradley Tusk about what to do when most jobs have been automated. > So what does that do to the environment? Because I think this is much bigger, more than auto regulation, these are all big issues. I had a very interesting interview with Gavin Newsom; he's like, "Every idea of the employee has to change. Everything. And it...

 

Ambiguity [...]

Once all scriptable jobs have been automated, the only work remaining for humans will be work that contains ambiguity. {{Tags: FutureWork}}...

 

Relevant Education [...]

There is so much great information in this keynote speech by Mike Caulfield, but I'm pulling out this bit because it's a good reminder to me about what works in my own online classroom. > Addressing belonging requires the ability to modify and customize materials. > Addressing relevance requires space for students to contribute, to publish, to remix. > Addressing div...

 

How we learn and teach [...]

hbr.org telling us that not only is work changing, but so also is leadership and with it, the way we learn how to lead. > Relying solely on classroom-based learning has a reputation for being inspiring in the moment but offering little to no transfer of training — nothing changes back on the job. But relying solely on on-the-job learning poses its own obstacles incl...

 

Detection Skills [...]

@hjarche reminds us, as part of developing our Deep Thinking muscles, that having powerful Crap Detection skills are vital. Harold recommended this 2009 Howard Rheingold post on "Crap Detection 101." I was pleased to see it again, because long ago, I taught a class in "Technical Fluency" at . Crap Detection was definitely part of the curriculum. > The first thing we a...

 

PKM Week 4 Critical Thinking [...]

@hjarche challenging us to take the next step in Personal Knowledge Mastery (PKM): Critical Thinking. He is pushing us to realize that thinking and Deep Work are essential. It's so easy to be lazy and simply do the equivalent of re-tweeting all the time. Last week, our work was about the importance of sharing, but somehow I didn't take in the importance of this Deep W...
