Continuing from the previous posts (post 1, post 2) on standards & technologies for digital learning, accessibility and other infrastructure/languages/components are discussed. The scope of this trilogy of blog posts is to gather related standards and technologies for the field of digital learning, mapping as fully as possible, the existing solutions that any implementer of… Read More Standards & Technologies for Digital Learning (part III)
Whilst reading the “Art of Innovation” the other day (review will follow soon enough), I came across something I was not aware of. This was the theory about the evolution of economies, as coined by B. Joseph Pine II and James H. Gilmore (in the distant 1998, while I was still in high school). The… Read More Experience Economy: What’s next?
For my 9th review/commentary on entrepreneurship-related books, I chose a book I’ve been wanting to get my hands on for quite some time. It’s on “The Back of the Napkin: Solving Problems and Selling Ideas (with pictures)” by Dan Roam, who also founded the Napkin Academy (how cool is this name?). I have always considered myself… Read More Book Review: The Back of the Napkin
Being a big fan of the motto “less is more”, seeing this book title, I knew that I had to get my hands on it! So, just a few days after the previous book review called ReWork, I got my hands on it and finished reading Essentialism – The Disciplined Pursuit for Less. Overall, this is a really… Read More Book Review: Essentialism – The Disciplined Pursuit for Less
Hi there! It’s been quite some time since my last book review, actually it’s been more than a year since when I reviewed the “Blue Ocean Strategy“. Time flies! It’s been a year with ups and downs and with new experiences work-wise, that got me reading lots and lots of stuff, but not this kind… Read More Book Review: Rework
Having friends abroad, always puts me on the spot the past few years when something weird or bad happens in Greece. From 2010 when the crisis hit, we used to attend project meetings for EU-funded projects (there’s your next anecdote for Greece-based researchers), and we were constantly asked questions about the future of Greece, about… Read More Hypo-crisis
Having read the article that you may find in the end of this post, I really started wondering about this “awesome” idea of open offices and working spaces. It has been and still is kind of a trend here in Greece as well, having open spaces within an office, facilitating contact, idea exchange, openness and many… Read More Open Offices: Myths and the Cruel Reality
Today I was reading through (again) one of my favourite PhD Theses of all time (not mine!). It was titled: A Dynamic Learning Object Life Cycle and its Implications for Automatic Metadata Generation by Kris Cardinaels from KULeuven. This one, along with Xavier Ochoa’s, Learnometrics: Metrics for Learning Objects and of course mine, are my three top PhD… Read More Quality of Educational Metadata: Some Views Here & There
Through these years of travelling, working in projects, meeting new people, I have been blessed with quite a large number of friends. Friends that I keep close to my heart even if I don’t see them that often lately. With them, we just leave things somewhere and then, every time we talk we pick up from… Read More Is fear more powerful than hope, or is it the other way around?
It’s no new thought for me, but indeed, everything is metadata! And everywhere you look, even when you least realize it, you see metadata. Colours of buildings, clothing styles, colours of sunglasses, weather, etc. Of course, it’s not easy to put a tag on everything, but imagine, what if you could… Imagine walking around in Athens… Read More Metadata is Everywhere | Everything is Metadata
