the ReflectLearn experience

embers of the world

based around the framework  of ‘Reflect, Connect – Collaborate, Innovate – Become’

In this et@lking interaction, you will meet Debbie Nicol, an Australian expatriate of 15 years, currently living in Dubai. Curating her own business, www.businessenmotion.com Debbie deals with strategic corporate change, and learning and development initiatives.  She works closely with an online, international corporate academy driving the corporate culture evolution, being an ambassador for the social constructivist approach to learning.  Throughout her corporate journey, she realized an organization wont change until the very last person engages with it.  Herein lay the challenge, whereby she discovered that traditional methods simply weren’t forging this engagement. The connection simply didn’t exist.  Similarly nor did it exist in many personal lives, until the layers of distortion were removed.

This was the impetus for the creation of a new personal and social development model called ‘embers of the world’ (www.embersoftheworld.com) , based around the framework  of ‘Reflect, Connect – Collaborate, Innovate – Become’. With change at its heart, is ‘embers’ a concept to be taught, facilitated, connected with or simply ‘caught’?  And to what level? It’s aiming for change on both an individual level as well as the UN level, so quite a spectrum.  And how is technology being applied currently, and how will it in the future?

If the above has whet your appetite, feel free to take a sneak peek at how the book concept works here (Travelling Embers) or here (Corporate Embers) and a snapshot of the international online ReflectLearn forum here ……come along on April 27 at 8 pm to meet the lady behind the concept….

    Hi everyone. This session was quite inspiring and I introduced the tower building concept to my year 9/10 IT class using a free online tool called diagram.ly (instead of the lego blocks). Here is a post on what the lesson looked like http://murcha.wordpress.com/2011/04/30/diagram-ly-an-engaging-tool/

    Great lateral thinking there Anne, I have had a look at Diagram.ly and find it nice and friendly. This could be used for an online version of a ‘lego construction’ to express what the learner feels about their learning etc.
