Re: Yammer for Education

Really eager to explore together the forces at play and how the recommendations of top minds in this space might be facilitated with Yammer!

Some of my thoughts are coming from Clayton Christensen Institute (College Transformed), Tom Friedman (Radically Open) and John Seely Brown (DML 2012 Keynote, Media X @Stanford).

 

Who do you follow for thought leadership? What questions are top of mind?

Re: Yammer for Education

"When students use Yammer to connect and build relationships, whether it be in their own team or with a colleague on the other side of the world, it leads to greater knowledge sharing, innovation and ultimately a return on investment. In this case, that ROI is better performing students." 

 

Such a stellar finding among postgraduate students! Thanks for sharing, @Cai Kjaer / @Sharon Dawson / @Laurence Lock Lee!

Re: Yammer for Education

Yes these were quite stunning results and confirm our perceived hierarchy of Personas -> Engagers, Catalysts, Responders, Broadcasters and Observers better than any of our own research! I think this will have large impacts on both students and educators. What future employer wouldn't be excited by having their 'A' grade new hire come with 'A' grade collaboration skills as well. And an educator who is comfortable in the knowledge that the students that she has assessed as the 'best' are indeed the 'best' workplace ready as well.
