The social life of information by John Seely Brown( Book )

48 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 2,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For years pundits have predicted that information technology will obliterate the need for almost everything - from travel to supermarkets to business organizations to social life itself. Individual users, however, tend to be more skeptical. Beaten down by info-glut and exasperated by computer systems fraught with software crashes, viruses, and unintelligible error messages, they find it hard to get a fix on the true potential of the digital revolution."
A new culture of learning : cultivating the imagination for a world of constant change by Douglas Thomas( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twenty-first century is a world in constant change. In A New Culture of Learning, the authors pursue an understanding of how the forces of change, and emerging waves of interest associated with these forces, inspire and invite us to imagine a future of learning that is as powerful as it is optimistic. Typically, when we think of culture, we think of an existing, stable entity that changes and evolves over long periods of time. In A New Culture, Thomas and Brown explore a second sense of culture, one that responds to its surroundings organically. It not only adapts, it integrates change into its process as one of its environmental variables. By exploring play, innovation, and the cultivation of the imagination as cornerstones of learning, the authors create a vision of learning for the future that is achievable, scalable and one that grows along with the technology that fosters it and the people who engage with it. The result is a new form of culture in which knowledge is seen as fluid and evolving, the personal is both enhanced and refined in relation to the collective, and the ability to manage, negotiate and participate in the world is governed by the play of the imagination

The power of pull : how small moves, smartly made, can set big things in motion by John Hagel( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a radical break with the past, information now flows like water, and we must learn how to tap into its stream. Individuals and companies can no longer rely on the stocks of knowledge that they've carefully built up and stored away. Information now flows like water, and we must learn how to tap into the stream. But many of us remain stuck in old practices--practices that could undermine us as we search for success and meaning. In this revolutionary book, three doyens of the Internet age, whose path-breaking work has made headlines around the world, reveal the adjustments we must make if we take these changes seriously. In a world of increasing risk and opportunity, we must understand the importance of pull. Understood and used properly, the power of pull can draw out the best in people and institutions by connecting them in ways that increase understanding and effectiveness. Pull can turn uncertainty into opportunity, and enable small moves to achieve outsized impact. Drawing on pioneering research, The Power of Pull shows how to apply its principles to unlock the hidden potential of individuals and organizations, and how to use it as a force for social change and the development of creative talent. -- Jacket

Storytelling in organizations : why storytelling is transforming 21st century organizations and management by John Seely Brown( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Storytelling in Organizations lays out for the first time why narrative and storytelling should be part of the mainstream of organizational and management thinking. This case has not been made before. The personal and idiosyncratic tone of the book comes from a set of presentations made at a Smithsonian symposium on storytelling in April 2001. It combines the liveliness and freshness of spoken English with the legibility of a ready-friendly text. Interviews with all the authors done in 2004 add a new dimension to the material, allowing the authors to reflect on their ideas and clarify points or highlight ideas that may have changed or deepened over time."--Jacket

The purpose of the class today was to give the students a chance to create something that another Russian speaker would understand tying in with our theme of Russian cities and Russian geography and also to begin to realize what some of the things are that you can see in these various cities. This class is a mix of Russian 1 and Russian 4 students. Russian 4 has all heritage learners, all students who were born in some part of the former Soviet Union. Two of them actually have a first language of Ukrainian and then Russian. I design it so that most of the time they're working on separate units, separate projects
