Distributed governance of technological innovation through the case of WiBro in S. Korea.

I attended the Social Informatics Cluster meting to hear Jee Hyun Suh present on: Co evolution of an emerging mobile technology and mobile services: distributed governance of technological innovation through the case of WiBro in S. Korea. These are rough notes taken during the presentation. She presented the story of WiBro and the implications for the governance of […]

weeknotes [25082014]

Over the last couple of weeks, my time has been spent on: supervising Masters students on the dissertations with most submitting last week working with three part-time students as they start their dissertations developing a couple of ideas on a new course involving what is, I think, an innovative structure. More to follow on both of these piloting discourse analysis for my PhD studies […]

Open innovators

There’s an interesting series of blogs from Nesta and 100%Open on a joint project on supporting open innovation in charities which can be found here. The main common points emerging for charities to further develop, although these could be applicable for any organisation, are: Breaking down internal siloes Focusing innovation investment on core business concerns such as increasing […]

IT Futures Conference – Disruption

Here’s my attempt at live blogging the IT Futures conference at the University of Edinburgh IT Futures conference on the theme of Disruption. The hashtag for the conference is #itfutures The conference is starting with an address from the Principal, Sir Tim O’Shea on disruptions, predictions and surprises and the need for systematic thinking especially on what […]

Learning innovations and digital education

An interesting report on Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) from Open University based academics. The report discusses: 1. what is TEL but in terms of technologies “add value to” (enhancing) teaching and learning rather than being indivisible from or enmeshed in teaching and learning. Can you imagine teaching and learning without any technologies (digital of otherwise)? […]

LinkPool [18092013]

Here are a few links of interest: Harold Jarche reviews Gary Klein’s “Seeing What Others Don’t” on how insights happen and provides an effective scaffolding for reflecting on and in action and in the importance of stories in sense-making. I can see these models highlight in the review as pragmatic approaches to operationalising the probe-sense-respond […]

Digital Scholarship: day of ideas 2

I’m listening now to Tara McPherson on humanities research in a networked world as the opening session of the Digital Scholarship day of ideas. (I’ve started late due to a change in the start-time). Discussing how large data sets can be presented in a variety of interfaces: for schools; researchers; publishers and only now beginning to realise the variety […]

Innovation as knowing, experience and action?

These are some very rough initial thoughts that I hope to develop over a couple of posts. Building on an earlier post on learning, creativity & innovation summarising that (a) innovation occurs through learning and (b) learning is a social/ collaborative process (and so innovation is also a collaborative process) it is clear that innovation […]

web 2.0 [links]

A new report has been published by the CIPD on web 2.0 in organisations/ enterprise 2.0 – the download is available here (at least to members anyway). The research is largely empirical and coming from a management innovation slant (as the researchers are from the Management Lab at London Business School). No surprises in the […]

interesting [links]

A number of people have been interested in the new report from JISC – see here – on the lack of digital literacies among the digital natives/ gen y. I’m less concerned about issues of plagiarism (tho’ that’ll change now I’m an actual academic, but we have software to spot that sort of thing) but […]
