Why and How Should Educators Embrace Media Literacy in Classroom | Bhive | Scoop.it

Today, we get most of our information through an interwoven system of media technologies. Media literacy is the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and create media. Media literate youth and adults are better able to understand the complex messages we receive from television, radio, Internet, billboards, video games, music, and all other forms of media. Media literacy skills are included in the educational standards worldwide not only to provide them the knowledge about its use but also to save them from the potential harm.

Content Marketing Tools for Blog Writing

Content Marketing Tools for Blog Writing | Bhive | Scoop.it

Are you writing blog posts that (almost) nobody is reading? Are you spending hours writing the ultimate post for your startup and the only people reading or sharing it are your boss, your colleague and your parents?

Ever wondered why?

Because your content is boring.Sorry, but it’s true…..

Get this: There are over 2 million blog posts being written every single day. That means that the challenge isn’t writing a blog, it’s writing a blog that someone is actually going to read. It needs to be relevant, timely, colourful and well presented. You may think you already know that, but high are chances that there are strategies and stages that you skipping over when creating your content. But do not fear. There are tools out there that can help you....

Insightful. There is no replacement for being generous and authentic in your social media networks.(From the article): Keep the “You” in Your Writing

Taking a moment to relate to a personal experience, and telling that story, even if it’s only a few sentences, is easier than going through the motions with your bullet points. Isn’t it easier to write about something you know and have experienced? Including “you” in your articles should only make your job easier. Save time. Be finished. Get paid.

 

Do us both a favor, and write your take on the subject at hand. Otherwise, no one will pay attention.

Probably not news to most of us (no pun intended), since it seems to me that millennials thrive on immediacy of news, and attribute well served by social media. The desire (or even recognition) for accuracy, or journalistic insight, appears to be less important. But maybe my perspective is influenced by my 17-year career at Reuters, where accuracy always took precedent over timeliness.

Top technology shifts that confront the business today

Top technology shifts that confront the business today | Bhive | Scoop.it

As I pointed out when the "big five" IT changes came down the pike three years ago (mobile, social, cloud, consumerization, and big data), which were seen as an unprecedented series of simultaneous changes at the time -- and in which we are still mostly in the early to mid-point stages of adoption in organizations today -- that the gap between what's achievable and what's needed might become untenable. Combine these in-process changes with limited budget for tackling strategic new capabilities like open APIs, Internet of Things, omnichannel engagement, machine learning, digital business models, rethought digital workplaces, and new models of IT such as bi/tri-modal, and you have a pretty hard to climb mountain of accumulated technical debt.

A very insightful diagram within another interesting article, it charts the multiple technologies that organizations are faced with and that can provide serious disruptions by lowering costs or enabling new business models.


WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT?

It says "technology" and everyone thinks CIO but in reality those changes will impact every unit in the organization so every leader must be aware of them and have a plan to manage the accompanying change from a people and process standpoint.
