Pinterest Announces Rich Pins for Articles

Pinterest Announces Rich Pins for Articles | Arts Management and Technology | Scoop.it

So now, if you're a brand that wants to take advantage of Pinterest but finds original visual content too high a resource investment for you to make, you don't have to be left out of the Pinterest game. You can pin, say ... those awesome blog articles you're always writing!

 

The article pins will now include critical information in a more prominent fashion that helps your written content get traction, including

- Story Headline

- Author Name

- Description of the Story (like your meta description)

- Source URL

 

Now you might be saying to yourself, "Self, I used to pin my articles on Pinterest, anyway." Well, good for you for being scrappy -- but now those pins will look waaaay better. The biggest difference? The images will be bigger, and critical information like your meta data is displayed more prominently....

Google search can be one of a business owner's best friends, helping to quickly discover anything one needs to know, in order to resolve issues at hand far more quickly than previously possible.


Whilst a godsend fron this point of view, most business owners are very inefficient in their use of Google search, simply because they are not aware of the many clever search tricks that Google has kindly built into their search tool.


This excellent article, highlights that Google search is more powerful when used to its full capabilities, and it offers 15 clever search tips you can utilise to obtain better results when searching on Google.

MAM Presenting's curator insight, November 29, 2013 1:38 PM


Wasn't aware of this program provided by Fractured Atlas, but for small- to mid- sized arts organizations, why not give this free open-sourced Cloud-based ticketing/CRM a try? Depending on the usability of the program, claims to “give independent artists and small- and mid-size arts organizations the same technology and marketing power as major cultural institutions” may actually be valid.

With all of this technology available, I am left wondering if at some point in the future will there will be so many technologies and systems employed by numerous organizations that coordinating and syncing between the systems may be impossible? The next problem to solve for future generations?


-Dan

MAM Presenting's comment, November 30, 2013 3:45 PM
For small- to mid-sized arts organizations, an efficient tool could be a huge help. However I agree with Dan's concern on the coordination between too many different technologies and systems in the future. Also, people might need to balance the benefits new tech brings and the intangible costs of personnel training and organizational change. —Su

VISUAL LITERACY

Demonstrate the ability to interpret, recognize, appreciate, and understand information presented through visible actions, objects and symbols, natural or man-made

 

Peter Evans's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:47 AM

I'd suggest a lot of the more innovative university programmes are already doing much of what is suggested here. One thing to emphasise is supporting students to use digital tools specifically for learning as they generally already know how to use these tools. In otherwords, while students may often be digitally competent, they are often less digitally literate in terms of learning processes. Also, what refer to PDAs - surely old tech?

Miep Carstensen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 11:14 PM

Sound advice for teachers to incorprate these core competencies in their teaching programmes.

MIT: 10 Breakthrough Technologies 2013 you should know about

MIT: 10 Breakthrough Technologies 2013 you should know about | Arts Management and Technology | Scoop.it

MIT's definition of a breakthrough is simple: an advance that gives people powerful new ways to use technology. It could be an intuitive design that provides a useful interface (e.g., “Smart Watches”) or experimental devices that could allow people who have suffered brain damage to once again form memories (“Memory Implants”). Some could be key to sustainable economic growth (“Additive Manufacturing” and “Supergrids”), while others could change how we communicate (“Temporary Social Media”) or think about the unborn (“Prenatal DNA Sequencing”). Some are brilliant feats of engineering (“Baxter”), whereas others stem from attempts to rethink longstanding problems in their fields (“Deep Learning” and “Ultra-Efficient Solar Power”). As a whole, this annual list not only tells you which technologies you need to know about, but also celebrates the creativity that produced them.

Chunks, bits and short modules make learning more manageable and easier to integrate into long-term memory. Long classroom or web-based training courses may accomplish the function of training, but rarely achieve desired retention rates. Instead of just dumping information on the learner, employees are expecting the content to be easy to find, relevant and digestible in the way their brains process information.
