Being able to share content no matter what the device has always been fundamental to collaboration and the sharing of great ideas. At DisplayNote we've recognised this need and we're happy to announce that students can now join a DisplayNote session on a Chromebook or Chrome enabled Browser.
Firsty, let me make a bold statement: Everyone now is a remote worker or mobile worker. I'm basing this on a few assumptions: one, you actualy work from home or off-site or at some point outside of your organisation’s physical space, you answer emails, take calls, read presentations on the train,meet with others at different locations.
This means we are all, in some shape or form, a remote worker. As I said, there are of course those who are actual remote workers, most of the time based elsewhere, whether in a satellite office, at home, co-working spaces or just travelling on the road.
The below diagram gives some stats on Americans who reported working from home. And this is just working from home!
We'll start with a recent stat. Did you know that 67% of CIOs and IT Professionals beleive that mobility will impact thir business as much or more than the internet did in the 1990s. In fact, there's a whole host of stats out there that show how important Enterprise Mobility is,
In meetings, whether they're in a conference room or board room, or in a huddle room or just a general meeting space, everyone in the room will be learning something, otherwise if they already know everything, why are they in the meeting?
When you're next sharing information or presenting to the team, what can really help in the understanding of that information is knowing what types of learners you're talking to and how to adjust that style.
In this blog we examine the various types of learners and what you could do to improve your presentations. According to the VAK theory of learning, there are 3 types.
Having a definitive list of the best productivity blogs is priceless, a list that you can quickly refer to in times of writer’s block, unproductive slumps, when you just need that little bit inspiration to get you going again. We’ve included some of our all time favourites, that we reference and use time and time again.
Want to be more productive? We’ve got you covered. It’s the ultimate list of the best productivity blogs (114 resources in all) ever. Nothing but pure list. Dive in.
Consider this scenario: you need the main meeting room at 14:30 for 2 hours. no dice it's booked. You could book it for 1600 but the meeting before that might not get started on time, so you think about booking it for 1630 but then decicde that's tool ate in the day to do any meanigful work, so you check tomorrow's planner. Meanwhile your competitor has no such productivity bottlenecks and steals a march on you.
It doesn't have to be this way. In conference rooms across the planet, there's a constant war being waged - a war over time, a war over cables and connections - a battle of bandwidth and of scheduling, sometimes the most intense fighting is over something as simple as space, chairs or plug sockets... How can we alleviate this? How can we bring peace to the conference rooms of the world?
Successful remote collaboration doesn't just happen. People from different cultures, in different locations don't just suddenly come together and function like a well-oiled machine.
From a manager's perspective, you need to pay attention to the times those teams come together, their face-to-face time, the technology used, design of shared spaces, of transparency, and access to and sharing of information; it’s here that you’ll see what is gained and lost in terms of productivity and efficiency.
In this post we pay attention to some of the problems to remote collaboration and how to avoid them.
With BYOD expanding into Bring Your Own Anything, with smart watches and even connected eyewear in recent times, businesses really need to get a handle on what this means for the workplace. It won't work to just hope it sorts itself out, if you expect your employees to continue reaping the benefits of BYOD, you need to be proactive in facilitating this.
With many schools and organisations rolling out BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and BYOA (Bring Your Own Apps), there naturally comes with it, great opportunities for getting creative in a lesson or a meeting. Utilising the device's camera is one such way to get creative. We have seen this a lot with DisplayNote users and wanted to give a few examples of using your device's camera in a lesson or presentation to make them more engaging.
As part of a European Project called ‘Creative Classroom Lab’, DisplayNote Technologies Ltd has been working closely with Partner NEC on the two year project designed to develop tablet-based solutions for new tablet learning methods.
