Muvenation Pre-week 1 activities

A. I am your friend. I don’t work in education. You are talking to me about the idea that we all learn from each other, in all kinds of contexts, and that this can often be richer than more formal classroom based learning. I am sceptical. Tell me about an informal learning experience you have had online in which collaboration was involved, show me a concrete example to help me to see what you mean.

Truly we all use past experiences to make decisions on our lives. Not only this but we have a look at others behaviour to act in front a situation. I think with technology we do the same thing.

A while ago a meeting was requested to be in one place between people, a formal letter was required as an official document and as probe of something. These days all this concepts had been modified because our way of thinking has change.

We are now having meetings through video conferences and we have learned that they are as effective as face to face ones.

Maybe the first thing we have learned is to use technology in the best way for our careers and to include it in our day by day.

B. We all explore new technologies, some grab our attention more than others, some seem revolutionary, others simply bore us. Tell us about that new tool, or set of tools, you have just discovered that really excites you, talk about the potential it has to change your work. What do you want to do with it?

I got into the technology field not only for curiosity but also for necessity at my job place. Though, while I was a student I used to use technology once I started my professional career everything changed.

Now I’m more into wikis, social network pages etc. I’m actually a regular user for personal and professional matters. Besides this it’s not about something that amaze you or not it’s about how can you use it to your benefit?

The simplest piece of technology can save you ours of work and provide you with hours of entertainment. Ever single thing should have at least some of our time to study its possibilities.

C. Do you see yourself as a pioneer? Do you think you are more innovative than others in your organisation? Do you think your organisation is lagging behind? Tell us how you feel about this?

Of course I don’t see myself as a pioneer. It is not like waking up in the morning and say: “hey! I’ll make wikis the most important technology thing ever today!”

Organisations keep themselves updated as much as possible to catch the trends on the market and once again to adapt that technology which is more useful for them.
