My Top 5 iOS Apps of the Week – Week #2
Fri, Sep 23rd 2016 1:52p   Luis Suarez
I never thought I would be enjoying this much putting together this series of blog entries around my Top 5 iOS Apps of the Week as I am currently doing at the moment. More than anything else, because of the trip down the memory lane from over 8 years ago till today to see whether my own work habits and productivity hacks, while on the move, have evolved a fair bit, or perhaps not so much. Or whether, maybe, I have completely changed my own user behaviours so drastically that it has morphed into

How Social Networking Tools Enable Heutagogy in Learning Organisations

  Imagine one day you read this quote: ‘The way we teach in our schools isn’t the way I think you create successful (and happy) adults, it’s the way you create the society we’ve had until now.’ Now imagine you swap the wordings ’teaching’ for ‘learning’ and ‘our schools’ for ‘our workplaces’. Read it out loud again, please. Slowly. Imagine if you then read this other quote at some point in time later on: ‘I don’t want to grow up and 30 years later find out that I

Loyalty in Social Networks
Mon, Sep 19th 2016 10:39a   Luis Suarez
  One of the best decisions I ever made upon becoming a freelancer, nearly three years ago, was to consciously spend plenty more time doing tons of additional reading (Whereas in the past I just couldn’t, for whatever the reason), whether it was books, white papers, reports, studies, research, articles, long-form blog posts, etc. etc. more than anything else to help me switch away from that constant flair of snacking around content on media tools and, instead, slow down a fair bit enjoyin

Vanity Killed the Social Media Star
Thu, Sep 15th 2016 1:33p   Luis Suarez
Over the course of last few months a few folks have asked me about why I am not so active anymore in different social tools from the so-called Social Web, as well as why I stopped advocating and pontificating about their huge potential to transform the way we connect, collaborate, share our knowledge and, eventually, get work done more effectively. And I guess, after all of this time, I am now ready to put together this article to explain why not and what I am doing instead. It all comes down t

My Top 5 iOS Apps of the Week – Week #1
Tue, Sep 13th 2016 7:51p   Luis Suarez
  It’s been nearly 6 years since the last time I have put together an entry over here in this blog, where I was recommending some of my favourite Productivity & Social Apps for iOS, in order to get work done more effectively, that I keep using on a regular basis, even to today. Since I am about to embark on resuming that series of articles, once more, as I mentioned on the recent write-up about my initial user experience with my iPad Pro, I am very aware that some things may have chan

Top 10 Tools for Learning 2016
Tue, Sep 13th 2016 5:31a   Luis Suarez
Every year, and for the last 10 years, which is a huge achievement in this day and age, if you ask me, Jane Hart puts together this wonderful list of Top 100 Tools for Learning, where she encourages everyone to fill in a form, or tweet further along, or even create your own blog post, where you’d be listing your Top 10 Tools for Learning, indicating whether each of those tools would be fitting in under the following categories:  Top 100 Tools for Education – for use in schools, colleg

2016 – The Year I Went Mobile Only with My iPad Pro
Fri, Sep 9th 2016 3:41p   Luis Suarez
In a recent blog entry I referenced an article Euan Semple published a few days back under the heading ‘Being at work’, which I can strongly recommend re-reading through it, if you haven’t just yet. There were a number of different themes that caught my attention back then and I thought that, perhaps, for today’s article, I’d focus on one of them I didn’t mention the last time around. This one, to quote: ‘Ten years later, having experienced over that time the joy and increased effe

Whatever Happened to Critical Thinking?
Wed, Sep 7th 2016 1:13p   Luis Suarez
One of the biggest challenges I have been facing in the last couple of weeks, upon resuming my blogging mojo, while reducing my own online presence in different media tools, has been re-building my own blogroll. Remember them? They were a really cool way to help you build community, through wonderful interactions and connections via comments, trackbacks, pingbacks and what not, around the stuff you were truly passionate about and loved writing on and on and on. They were, and still are!, one of

The Mindset of Work
Tue, Sep 6th 2016 2:03p   Luis Suarez
What’s the future of work? I bet that’s probably the number one single question we all keep bumping into multiple times during the course of the day and, yet, we still haven’t got a clue about what the real future of work might be like in the long run. We know it’s going to be impacted big time by technology, if not already!, where we eventually might not even talk about work anymore, but more on that in another upcoming blog post. What I’m most interested in at the moment though is ho

Why Don’t You Show Your Work?
Mon, Sep 5th 2016 2:57p   Luis Suarez
There used to be a time when plenty of knowledge (Web) workers flocked to the Social Web to nurture, cultivate and build their own external social networks. Mostly, as an opportunity to introduce emergence into their work practices, while getting acquainted with all of the rage around social tools through first hand experiences. Perhaps, the most typical example of how people would achieve such levels of commitment and involvement with the so-called Web 2.0 spirit would be through the sharing of
