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

47 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 3,039 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." "Drawing from rich learning experiences at Xerox PARC, from examples such as IBM, Chiat/Day Advertising, and California's "Virtual University," and from historical, social, and cultural research, the authors sharply challenge the futurists' sweeping predictions. They explain how many of the tools, jobs, and organizations seemingly targeted for future extinction in fact provide useful social resources that people will fight to keep. Rather than aiming technological bullets at these "relics," we should instead look for ways that the new world of bits can learn from and complement them."--Jacket
Seeing differently : insights on innovation by John Seely Brown( )

13 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 1,254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seeing Differently is the author's personal guide to ideas that will shape the way we innovate into the twenty-first century." "A provocative selection of articles from the Harvard Business Review, this book speaks to the revolutionary changes that information and communication technologies are sparking in the business environment. Gaining a foot-hold in this new world requires constant reassessment of how we think about strategy, risk, organizational design, research, product development, marketing, distribution - even the notion of competition itself." "These articles make the compelling case that companies must not only innovate continuously, but also honor the value of emergent ideas. In order to recognize and respond to this rapidly shifting landscape, we need to question our fundamental assumptions, readjust our focus and use new types of tools. Each of the twelve articles suggested a new way of thinking about some aspect of the way we do business."--BOOK JACKET
Storytelling in organizations : why storytelling is transforming 21st century organizations and management by John Seely Brown( )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 1,106 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
