This will be a major test for the iPad in one of the largest (urban) school districts in the United States. It all comes down to teacher buy-in and embedded professional development.

Cut through B2B noise with effective storytelling [infographic] | Alltop | Book Stuff | Scoop.it

How do you make the voice of your business heard over the din online? By telling your story.  Take a look at the full infographic to see the process broken down into five easy steps:

1. show, don't tell

2. make sure your message doesn't get skimmed

3. manage information for your audience

4. don't let your brand get lost in marketing overload

5. don't let your information get lost in different places

Les avantages du storytelling dans un environnement marketing B2B surchargé, sous la forme d'une infographie

Grondin Samuel's curator insight, July 26, 2013 2:57 AM
Comment faites-vous la voix de votre entreprise entendu dans le vacarme en ligne? En racontant votre histoire. Jetez un oeil à la pleine infographie pour voir le processus décomposé en cinq étapes faciles:

1. montrer, ne pas dire

2. assurez-vous que votre message ne soit pas écrémé

3. gérer les informations pour votre auditoire

4. ne laissez pas votre marque se perdre dans la surcharge de commercialisation

5. ne laissez pas vos informations se perdre dans des endroits différents

All libraries are learning spaces, no matter how unusual they appear to be. Libraries support information literacy and lifelong learning.  They build communities.  They empower individuals.  They protect our right to know.  And what's more, they preserve our nation's cultural heritage.

A good explanation of the changing nature of the library as a place of interactive learning.

Peg Becksvoort's curator insight, July 11, 2013 1:57 PM

Just what I was trying to tell someone the other day. She said, "my students don't like to read novels, but I suppose I should take the kids to the library." To which I replied, "But they like to use the Internet to find things; wouldn't you like for them to do a better job of finding things?"

Librarians have gotten a bad rap in the past, represented as bookwormish and ‘uncool’. But the fact is that today, librarians are really beginning to build up a name for themselves with their deep knowledge base and their access to huge stores of information. And social media has made it easier than ever to connect with librarians that are far beyond the norm.
