Dare to share

/ por

While working on the CoMPASS (the ITC-ILO in-house toolkit on learning methodology and technology) DELTA has been reviewing several toolkits. For this blogpost we would like to highlight one of them. The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation launched a knowledge management toolkit for knowledge sharing and learning, called «Dare to Share«. More than 20 useful methods are explained and can be applied  at personal, team and organisational level. Several of the methods have been blogged already here (Peer Assist, Open Space) but the site will give you additional techniques for learning and training with a specific emphasis on knowledge sharing. Are you aware of any other interesting toolkits? Let us know.

Mobile voice and data communication is more and more accessible and affordable in developing countries. Only in Africa there are more than 280 million mobile phone subscriptions. People who had never access to a phone landline, a computer, or a car own now a mobile phone. Organisations take this communication channel serious and start to connect :

– The UN Foundation recently published an inspiring report on m-Health for Development titled: The opportunity of Mobile technology for Healthcare in the Developing World.
Unicef Innovation launched a platform for data collection, logistics coordination and communication allowing any mobile phone to interact with the web.
Kiwanja.net specialises in helping out organizations to use mobile applications for social change. Frontline sms and NgOMobile are good illustrations of this.
MobileActive is a growing community that documents interesting practices on how to effectively use mobile phones for social change.
