How Do You Know When You’re Overdosing On Social Networks?

How Do You Know When You’re Overdosing On Social Networks? | academic literacy development | Scoop.it

Social networks are captivating – there’s no doubt. The minds behind building the popular social media platforms of today knew exactly what they were doing and they saw it before any of us ever did. It’s a brilliant idea really – create a medium that allows people from all over the world to connect, share and collaborate like they never have been able to before in the history of the Earth. Incredible!

But an unforeseen (or potentially foreseen, but ignored) consequence is addiction. Social networks have been so good at “helping” us, but now they’re hindering us. From what you might ask? Well, ask your friends, family, parents, even children what they think. And although it is often joked about, it isn’t a joking matter.

Turnitin tool to help evaluate online resources (SEER) is here | academic literacy development | Scoop.it

Turnitin worked with educators to develop The Source Educational Evaluation Rubric (SEER), an interactive rubric to analyze and grade the academic quality of Internet sources used by students in their writing.  Instructors and students who use SEER can quickly evaluate a website and arrive at a single score based on five criteria scaled to credibility: Authority, Educational Value, Intent, Originality, and Quality.

Agree, lots of great information. Recommended.


I want to add one thing, if you're looking to build a website and

  • get all the tools and information to create traffic
  • write excellent content
  • find the best ways to monetize
  • blog directly from the site
  • integrate with the social media and much more, take a look at SBI/Sitesell. Tens of thousands happy members have built sites that end up in the 2-3% top traffic sites in the world. Over 300,000 Facebook supporters. Classes taught in over 30 universities around the world. Check out the CTPM process that makes it all happen: http://ctpm.sitesell.com/welcome23.html

Presentation Skills and Cat's Pajamas

Presentation Skills and Cat's Pajamas | academic literacy development | Scoop.it

5 Fun Presentation Skills Facts:

1.11% of people are “Terrified” of delivering a presentation. 7% “Feel Like Superman”. So, the majority of us fall somewhere in between. Not bad!

2.Just like with presentation design, we skew towards thinking we’re a bit better than average at delivering presentations.

3.We’re surprising good at practicing with 64% practicing their presentation at least twice. Good on you!

4.Above all else (designing nice slides, being energetic, funny or well rehearsed), your audience (38%) wants you to tell them a story, not lecture. Point taken!

5.When viewing presentations online, 75% prefer your slides to have voice-over rather than having to read them.

#ETMOOC over the next two weeks, we will be exploring what it means to be digitally literate | academic literacy development | Scoop.it

So over the next two weeks, we will be exploring what it means to be digitally literate. We’ve invited some amazing thinkers including Doug Belshaw, Howard Rheingold, Will Richardson, and Audrey Watters to lead us through certain aspects of this topic (see the Calendar for specific dates and times). And, as always, we’re hoping that the #etmooc community will participate through writing and commenting in our collective blog spaces, using the #etmooc hashtag on Twitter, in our Google Plus Community, and in other spaces of choice.
