Why You Should Be Using Video In Your Classroom [Infographic]

Why You Should Be Using Video In Your Classroom [Infographic] | Best of Technology | Scoop.it
Using video in the classroom has come a long way from a TV and VCR on a cart to watch a movie during class (The standard about ten gazillion years ago when I was a student). There are a ton of different ways you can employ video in your classroom, from video feedback to educational videos about specific topics, there is a lot of possibility out there. Even if you know that this way and that are options for including video in your classroom, you might still be wondering why you should be using video in the first place.

The Social Media Side Of Incident Response... And The 9 Social Dimensions Of Crisis PR

The Social Media Side Of Incident Response... And The 9 Social Dimensions Of Crisis PR | Best of Technology | Scoop.it

#1. The need for speed... 
Social media crisis response brings a new dimension to crisis communications: speed.

With social media crisis management, time is of the essence: the first 24 hours are crucial as this is when people will cast their digital nets out and frantically search for information. 

So assuming incident response is already well established in your organisation, you are in good shape as you have most of the building blocks in place. One easy block to add (now!) is a web page dedicated to a potential crisis/ breach. Having this prepared with an easy structure to follow will enable you to control the flow of information very quickly.
The structure of your web page should follow what Neira Jones calls The Three As and it should include the following sections:

A. Acknowledgement

Who attacked you? Why? etc.; When did it happen? How did it happen? How widespread? What/ who does it affect? How did you find out? But first and foremost, take ownership.

B. Apology

All too often, organisations do not acknowledge that their customers/ partners/ stakeholders/ etc. may be worried/ could be inconvenienced/ need to be reassured.  See The Power of an Apology.

C. Action

 At this stage, you may not know a lot, but you need to share what steps you propose to take/ have already taken to i) determine what happened and ii) prevent it from re-occuring and iii) Maintain the trust of your customers/ stakeholders/ partners/ etc.

You also need to reassure your customers/ partners/ stakeholders and show them you understand the situation

Design your web page with this structure in mind so content can easily be dropped in when needed.

A successful social media crisis response strategy can be summarised by
1) The Need For Speed
2) Head For Spread and
3) Check The Decks...

As ever, the best line of defence is being prepared...

Sleep tips: How to get more rest

Sleep tips: How to get more rest | Best of Technology | Scoop.it

Running a sleep deficit, it turns out, can have very real consequences for the balance sheet of life. For instance, research shows that sleeping too little can cause hormones such as leptin and ghrelin to go haywire. They’re prime actors in appetite regulation, and when we fail to get enough rest, cravings for calorie-laden food can be inflamed, sparking weight gain. Follow these simple recommendations.
