Motivation, encouraging independent learning – allowing readers to make connections through abstraction and re – integration.

..self-directed learners and thinkers.. students have a greater chance of making connections between concepts and ideas – reference earlier posts on salient communication

In actuality, providing a bridge between traditional design / development techniques which otherwise could prove a burden on time management costs helping communicators to draft first copy and gain a summarization in a shorter time of more extensive topics.

..use of higher order thinking skills as they create
and post entries in their blogs, along with commenting on other student’s blogs.

Recognized approaches to fact finding and research, questioning the continued learning benefits such as;

  • Self-directed learning
  • Peer-to-peer teaching and learning*
  • Inquiry-based learning*
  • Problem solving

Differentiated Learning with Technology – one size does not fit all, and this applies to the way students learn. Students benefit from blogging because differentiated learning using technology offers the ability to be creative, process new knowledge in their own way, and making sense of what they are learning in a manner more appropriate to their learning style. Collaborative Learning With Technology..

Through collaborative learning, students gain from sharing with each other. Here are benefits for students when they take responsibility for their own classroom blog.

Improved Writing Skills – students learn to focus more on writing and editing blog posts, which in turn improves their writing skills. This comes when they realize their blog entries are no longer just viewed by their teacher. Students learn they are writing for and interacting with wider audiences (teacher, peers, parents, and others) which provide comments, feedback, and recommendations. This collaborative learning loop benefits students’ writing skills through creating clear and concise blog posts.

Improved Reading Skills – students find they need to develop an increased understanding of what they read for two reasons. The first, good editing requires good reading skills. The second, preparation of clear and a concise blog post requires reading comprehension.

Abstracting content, understanding the requirement for recognition and altering approaches to individual efforts improving or at least making changes to the way subjects are taught and marks attributed through a system of ‘CPC’ – Cost per click Through per individual efforts before a time when summarization is mile stoned.

CPC/ CPM and approaches to MLM

Multi-level marketing (MLM), (also called network marketing, direct selling, and referral marketing), is a term that describes a marketing structure used by some companies as part of their overall marketing strategy. The structure is designed to create a marketing and sales force by compensating promoters of company products not only for sales they personally generate, but also for the sales of other promoters they introduce to the company, creating a downline of distributors and a hierarchy of multiple levels of compensation.

Risk and unsure starts

They go on to question the relevance of product placement plus the level of compensation in, as they term it, their multi-level compensation business which does not determine whether or not their plan is considered a janitor / pyramid scheme.

Future focus: noting the returns on small ownerships and their initial investments – industry sectors (print to digital and sourcing a more productive less risky approach)

The critical question for the FTC is whether the revenues that primarily support the commissions paid to all participants are generated from purchases of goods and services that are not simply incidental to the purchase of the right to participate in a money-making venture

Scheibeler, a high level “Emerald” Amway member: “UK Justice Norris found in 2008 that out of an IBO [Independent Business Owners] population of 33,000, ‘only about 90 made sufficient incomes to cover the costs of actively building their business.’ That’s a 99.7 percent loss rate for investors.”

Newsweek: based on Mona Vie’s own 2007 income disclosure statement “fewer than 1 percent qualified for commissions and of those, only 10 percent made more than $100 a week.”

Relevant / irrelevant

From spread-bets to penny stocks, and college to graduate employment or incentive schemes;

Business Students Focus on Ethics: “In the USA, the average annual income from MLM for 90% MLM members is no more than US $5,000, which is far from being a sufficient means of making a living (San Lian Le Weekly 1998)”

A Freedom of Information Act

In 2008/9 UK local councils spent an astonishing £19.1 million on third-party website agencies, up by 18.6% from 2007/8. We calculated that for government IT/Web services alone, a significant amount of £6.7 million of taxpayer’s money could be saved through outsourcing.

On Friday, a leading business process outsourcing (BPO) firm, namely Capita, announced a prediction regarding an increase in public sector outsourcing, as the newly-elected government sets forth to impress by delivering services more cost-effectively than ever before.

The chief executive of Capita, Paul Pindar, has said that a rise in public sector outsourcing could ‘make a material contribution to savings’ as intended by the new coalition government’s austerity plans to cut down on government costs.

Having won a staggering £523 million worth of new business and rebids in the past six months, Capita said it was witnessing a strong pipeline of work coming through for local councils, central government, health and defense departments, as public sector clients are forced to offload work to the private sector.

He goes on to say..

The new coalition government has set targets to cut 25 percent from some public sector departments and has asked the civil service to identify savings of up to 40 percent.

The recent announcement is a positive indication that the public sector is at last beginning to follow the example of the more efficiently-run private sector, cutting unnecessary costs and embracing technological innovations like flexible hiring and outsourcing.
