I believe that the most important thing is that employees should feel the responsibility towards the outcomes of their job, accordingly they should be fully aware of the goals and what is really needed to achieve.
“Faking it till you have it” doesn’t really help in social media, especially today when audiences are more educated and more aware of the tricks that some influencers do.
The attached report reflects how being honest is the best way to gain followers in social media. And honesty is what I always call for when advising for growing any social media account.
On the other hand, this attached article highlights how the audience are becoming more skilled in evaluating the information they receive online.. Which is my ultimate goal I am always working for: Evaluate the information always is a crucial skill to gain in today’s world.
Another point I need to stress here is, no short path to success… Work hard, be honest, arm yourself with the needed skills and provide a real value to your audience are the best approach to achieve your goals.
With the rapid changes around us, we, as educators, need to be flexible with the adaptation to new environments.
One of these changes is the skill set that is needed to survive in today’s world. Such skills are essential to every person in order to succeed either in life or in academia or in the job market.
These skills are needed due to the technology explosion, information overflow, and the fast growth of the information industry. Such as, research skills, evaluating skills and most importantly Lifelonglearning skills.
In that sense, we need to encourage, guide and support our students to find their way in the learning environment and help them to navigate through their learning journey in order to acquire the necessary skills, and to master the Lifelonglearning skills.
Our role as educators is changing so is the students’ role. The new learning theories support such changes as well as any new topic.
Encourage the students to seek skills, knowledge and experience on their own terms with your guidance and support.
