Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 28, 10:23 PM

Check out this infographic that looks at how teens and tweens are using social media. It probably comes as no surprise that they are very active in the use of social media. One statistic they show is

* Surveys have found that majority or 81 percent of kids aged 12 to 17 use social media. This figure is higher than the 72 percent of internet users overall.

According to this article there appears to be a difference between what teens and kids younger than teens prefer as far as social media platforms are concerned.

6 Second Learning with Vine: 22+ Ideas & Resources | Awesome Technology | Scoop.it

"Most of our students love learning and creating...I was excited to discover the creativity and imagination taking place on Vine, a social network with over 40 million people creating and sharing 6 second videos. We can use this popular free mobile app and social network to engage our students and get them to connect with our subject matter. "

What could your students create in 6 seconds with Vine? More than you might think. This post by Shelly Terrell shares over 22 ideas to help get your students creating Vines as well as information that is key to being successful. One example...did you know that students must be over 17 to have a Vine account? This means that most teachers would have to create a classroom account (and probably check your Acceptable Use Policy and get parents permission). The good news is that you can create an account that would only allow parents and students from your classroom to view the Vines.

Many additional resources are shared within the post including a recorded webinar by Turrell and also download her slides.

niftyjock's curator insight, May 26, 5:48 PM

For all you Vine aficionados. Lessons using 6 second videos.

TWCLibrary's curator insight, May 26, 6:57 PM

Great way to get students engaged in learning.  Creating something meaningful in 6 seconds takes a lot of thought!

Even though Adobe is not a free software, their product InDesign lets you stand out by creating stunning presentations. Watch the tutorial that will give you an insight into the creative process.

InDesign is aimed at academics but in my opinion it can successfully be used in general education as well.
