Brittany Skinner's curator insight, January 25, 2013 8:56 AM

An interesting infographic that highlights the notion social media gratification, and the addictive qualities that arise from talking/posting things about oneself. The author claims that "resisting twitter, facebook and other social media sites was harder than other urgues, including, smoking, drinking, spending money, sleeping and sex." Personally, i find this psychological effect fascinating.

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, January 27, 2013 2:22 PM

This is really the way we need to look toward our education future. I mean really have we not done the teach them set information then test them design over and over again? Just switching that to new gadgets really isn't change in a big way that will really inspire learning. Online open access to knowledge o could really inspire everyone to go beyond their set text book limits. Teachers need to be trained and inspired to find ways to implement these many new tools in creative personalized ways.
