The metaphors we use when we talk about work have an impact on how work is designed in organizations. The predominant metaphor is “labor as a resource” as in Human Resources. That metaphor results in those who design how organizations function limiting their conception of workers as a means to an end.

    “Instead, he [Jesse Rothstein] found that differences in local labor markets—for example, how similar industries can vary across different communities—and marriage patterns, such as higher concentrations of single-parent households, seemed to make much more of a difference than school quality. For example, a weather forecast which claims it will rain today may get that wrong. Every fortnight I curate some of the observations and insights that were shared on social media.

    [Examples] How Do You Gauge the Success of a VR Experience?
    Most recently shown at E3 this year, Skyrim provides an excellent example. Stepping into an artificial world is an exceptional experience, but just how do you gauge the success of a virtual reality (VR) experience? Well, there are many different methods to gauge success, and each method gives different results. VR is used in a variety of industries—primarily in gaming—but it has been used for informative 360-degree videos and tours of buildings.

    Here are some examples. Twenty years ago I was finishing my Master’s thesis on learning in the information technology workplace. A significant part of my research relied on the work of Marshall McLuhan, especially his laws of media. My job at the time was the development of all training related to a fleet of helicopters employed in tactical aviation: from pilots, to technicians, and including flight simulation and computer based training. The web was a new thing in 1997.

    For example, we know that automobiles contribute significantly to pollution, obesity, and greenhouse gases. Probably one the greatest barriers to positive change is convenience. However, most of us own at least one car and many of us own more than one. Cars are extremely convenient. Having lived car-free in a rural North American town for the past three years I can attest to how inconvenient it is to not own a car.

There was a high correlation between past and present experiences of reading. Respondents were most likely to read alone rather than with a parent.

    As an example, initially it looked as though (different from all the other studies) students preferred online to print, but this turned out to be because the question had been asked the other way round (so in fact the results DID agree). Getting a sample might need different approaches in each country, but in all countries is challenging, getting participation from students.

    Those in the information literacy community were interested perhaps in other things like students' transition to work, and also perceived gaps that needed filling (for example, in students' ability to translate their info skills in the workplace). For example if the cmpany wants to improve customer satisfaction, then you ask questions about the information flow in connection with the customer, you ask questions about the systems, about what the staff do etc.
