Marque employeur ou comment valoriser son image

Orientation Pays de la LoireLa marque employeur est un terme récent utilisé pour désigner l’image de marque à l’égard des employés ou salariés potentiels. Il s'agit d'une stratégie mise en place afin de véhiculer une certaine réputation de l'entreprise, de ses valeurs, son organisation, sa communication auprès d'un public tant interne (vers les salariés) qu'externe (vers le grand public).

Oh, Boy. Just What I've Always Wanted

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Oh, Boy. Just What I've Always Wanted
As Bud Hunt reports, "Yahoo is about to launch some sort of teacher tool." The Yahoo site says, "Get ready to create, modify, and share standards-based curriculum.". As Hunt says, "Oh, rapture." More seriously, Hunt questions the recent branding companies like Yahoo and Google have brought to education. "I wonder what others think about whether or not a few hours spent with a corporate cadre is a meaningful certification. Sure doesn't sound like one, at least from much of what I see. But teachers get something out of that deal, I'm sure. Why else would so many folks become Discovery STAR Educators, or Google Certified Teachers, or Yahoo Teachers of Merit?". More...

These Lessons Could Ruin Your Life

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. These Lessons Could Ruin Your Life
I'm not completely sold on these 'lessons' offered in this e-book by Steli Efti. But I'm pretty sold, and they follow the theme that schools are teaching fear and compliance rather than courage and empowerment. Now I doubt that this is universally true - there are some pretty courageous people out there, and teachers who model that courage. More...

Interoperability In the New Digital Identity Infrastructure

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Interoperability In the New Digital Identity Infrastructure
Scott Leslie sends this paper over, commenting that it might muddy, rather than clarify, the identity waters. He's right, as the author brings in the whole 'card-space' approach to identity into the picture and suggests that the identity infrastructure will need to accommodate those as well as the simpler (and more functional) OpenID-type specifications. The identity space could become complex in a hurry (which of course suits the big companies well). Overall, an informed discussion, but the problem should not be characterized as a 'tragedy of the commons' but rather, unless we can keep companies from carving it up among themselves, a problem of 'theft of the commons' - a far more common, and tragic, scenario.

eLearning Guild Annual Gathering 2007

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. eLearning Guild Annual Gathering 2007
I am in Boston where I'll be presenting at the E-Learning Guild conference tomorrow. I caught most of the keynote summarized by Jay Cross in this post and while it surveyed the trends evident in the participation culture it didn't, I think, capture the import. We are seeing today movements that are derivative of popular culture - people protesting WTO and governments, people mashing up commercial media, people gaming American Idol. But these are transition phenomena. Eventually (and sooner than you might thing) people will want to govern themselves, create their own media, select their own idols. More...

If We Taught English the Way We Teach Mathematics...

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. If We Taught English the Way We Teach Mathematics...
The author ponders, "Imagine that your only contact with "English" as a subject was through classes in school. Suppose that those classes, from elementary school right through to high school, amounted to nothing more than reading dictionaries, getting drilled in spelling and formal grammatical construction... You would probably hate the subject."
I have been toying with half an idea recently, nothing fully formed, that we ought to be teaching language rather than a language. Instead of, for example, teaching 'I', 'me', 'you', 'he' we would teach the concept of pronouns generally and how they are handled in a dozen or so languages. And students would see the relation between 'I' and 'Je' and 'Yo' and the rest, see how the same concept yields what is more or less the same word in these languages. More...

Psiphon - Creating Cracks in the Great Firewall

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Psiphon - Creating Cracks in the Great Firewall
Not sure I've mentioned this before, but it's worth pointing to this application that helps you see content through firewalls - whether the great firewalls that surround entire nations or the little firewalls that surround schools. Just remember if you use it that very little of what you do online is genuinely anonymous. More...

AIMS Fails Learning 101

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. AIMS Fails Learning 101
Just a note to our legislators in New Brunswick, that they should not be listening to the (not so neutral) advice of the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies, which is recommending standardized testing, and should instead be listening to people who have actually studied education and done some research in the field, who recommend against it. More...
