Analog and Digital

analog-digital

Working with others when you do not know them, their backgrounds and have never met

Today’s problems and issues are complex. To solve them we need to cross borders across professions, languages and cultures. There is no simple way. Technically this may seem easy. I agree. What many of us do not consider is that the users of technology are people. We need to work together!

Collaboration in a digital workplace requires us to learn how to work together without knowing what we understand with all our senses when we meet in person.

Developing ideas into solution requires critical thinking.

How do you tell someone that your idea, approach or solution might be a better choice without hurting this person’s feeling and then win them to build on existing ideas and knowledge together?

At the #3CityCreathon in Berlin, Bratislava and Rome participants were able to train this :

  • Selling your ideas in only 3 minutes – Elevator Pitches
  • Give feedback in a form that can be accepted
  • Digital communication between three cities

This combination between digital communication and analog collaboration developing an idea in teams is the digital workplace of the future present.

A perfect illustration for the eSkills conference in Bratislava where 200 policy makers, business leaders and experts discussed how digital technologies are transforming our lives at a pace never seen before.

Many thanks to all participants, organizers, decision makers, jury members, experts and our digital audience.

If the spark has reached you and you are eager to run a creathon or hackathon yourself, contact your local NetAcad contact.

Until next time

Inspirational Regards

You have 200 volunteers

… how would you solve your problem?

whatsapp-image-2016-10-17-at-18-35-11It is not an easy task to collect ideas, from the best to the worst ideas … brainstorming is not simple.

It is really important to go for quantities of ideas first. There are about 3000 raw ideas needed to get one successful product or service.

Tomorrow at about 11:00 the idea pitching to the jury sitting in our three locations Berlin, Bratislava and Rome is on the agenda.

We are inviting everyone to join us in this connect moment and share their thoughts, ideas and questions you might have.

Feel free to forward the invitation to your network – your neighbour, your family, your friends, your colleagues … and of course, your mailman.

We support the cultural change digital transformation is driving and want to make sure that sustainability and social benefit for all parts of our society are always part of the plan.

Join us online

Digital Transformation and Skills in Europe

Joining forces is the only way to approach this challenge

skills-you-need-netacadOur daily lives become more digital every day. The global marketplace requires all countries, cities and companies to make use of the technology and digital tools we have at our fingertips to improve the systems we use to run our economies, business and lives for more societal benefit for everyone.

This does not only sound difficult, it is difficult and complex.

The only way we can start to understand this challenge is by separating the different levels of society affected and looking at the details of each dimension and the related problems:

  • Country
  • City
  • Company
  • Citizen

Drilling down to the details allows us to understand that these changes affect all levels of our society. This is involving all of us: all professions, all citizens from the youngest to the oldest, for all cultures and all backgrounds. We need the competences, skills and abilities of every single one of us to go through these challenges.

hands-and-brainThe key to mastering lies in our education and continued education systems. The key to get through (every type of) change is learning new skills.

Digital Skills

The European Union and the OECD define the key competences for life-long learning:

  • Critical thinking
  • Communication
  • Problem solving
  • Collaboration

Creating learning spaces where those skills can be developed are on top of the mind of leaders. Innovative Educators engage and learn together with their students, business partners, tech experts and public stakeholders. It involves

  • collaboration of education, businesses and public institutions,/li>
  • bridges and spaces to connect ideas and work together,
  • openness and respect for each other with all our experiences.

Europe in the Digital era
where skills are making the difference

On 17th and 18th October 2016, more than 200 policy makers, business leaders and experts meet to exchange thoughts on how Europe will handle the challenges transforming our lives at a pace never seen before.

In parallel to the conference Cisco Networking Academy offers a unique interactive opportunity and concrete illustration of how technology can make a positive impact by organizing a two-day Multi-country Digitization Creathon for Social Innovation in Bratislava, Berlin and Rome in partnership with MakeSense.

In this Creathon Students come together in 3 cities and work in teams to create solution concepts with strong social and/or environmental impact.

For the 1st time this #3CityCreathon is open to the public 

17.10.2016 – 09.00 am
Join the IoT Introduction Session with Cisco Expert Marc Khayat
Register Session 1

18.10.2016 – 11.00 am
Join the Idea & Project pitches to share your thoughts

We hope that many of you from different parts of society will follow our invitation and join the discussion online.

Stay tuned … and join in

Looking forward to meeting you

Inspirational regards

Pitching Ideas

#IoECreathon #eskills #netacad #IoE @CiscoNetAcad

 

The IoE Creathon for Social Good was organized in Riga in parallel to the eSkills Conference on March 12th and 13th. It is a kind of hackathon (48 hours of intense work from an idea to a prototype) open to all students from all background with all types of competences.

It is an event that stimulates creativity and innovation, using new tools and methods, fostering and fueling creativity in everybody (organizers, helpers, partners and jury included) involved.

Students worked in teams and had to come up with ideas – in a very very short amount of time !! – where the innovative use of technology enhances public services. The event lasted 1,5 days. The end of the competition was a 5 minute pitch explaining their projects aiming to convince jury members that their idea is the best.

The Teams

Impatient team 
Long waiting queue for medical specialists in Latvia sparked the idea of a screening device to collect data about your health status with sensors so you can know when you really need to go to the doctor.

Moodwatch
Lonelyness is something we all know, but it is also a feeling we are able to track and possibly manage. People with Moodwatch can mentor others and get mentored by other when one feels lonely.

Volt 
solves the question: How can we help people who need help in their daily life? by creating local networks of volunteers and professionals who come and help you with tasks at hand.

Something from nothing
aims to create electricity from used water to help overcome the energy crisis in rural India. As a community owned initiative the produced electricity is used to light one room per house.

The jury

  • Giuseppe Cinque – our Netacad IoE product manager
  • Davis Plotnieks- head of a Latvian Social Business Incubator
  • Janis Grabis – head of the RTU IT department and
  • Leo Truksans – Netacad instructor and head of the IT department at University of Latvia

The judging criteria were the level of innovation of the project, the economic viability, the potential positive impact on society and the quality of the presentation.
