Derrick Schellenberg's curator insight, March 31, 2014 10:11 AM

An intriguing little infographic documenting the history of technology and its application to the education system.  Interesting how the use of radio or white boards (as opposed to chalk boards) are considered technological "improvements" or were seemingly revolutionary at the time.  Someone somewhere was a pioneer for bringing the radio or a cassette tape into the classroom.  I thought the wireless numbers for American schools was high and the use of iPads low.  Perhaps iPads are like Smart Boards, in that they seem really cool, but can be challenging to use effectively on a daily basis.  My interest is in cloud computing, web-based application, BYOD, and how to improve LMS.  What I'm always wondering is, what's coming next and how will it alter the use of technology in the classroom?

Uma interessante forma de combater a pirataria aos direitos de autor. A Getty Image,  a maior agência mundial fotográfica disponibilizou para uso livre mais de 35 milhões de fotos dos seus arquivos. Não para download mas como embed permitindo inclusive a partilha nas redes sociais. Uma ótima notícia mesmo assim. 

Só ficam de fora imagens de alguns acontecimentos como o 11 de Setembro  ou os confrontos da praça Tianamen. Compreensível.

Kelly Saiz's curator insight, April 15, 2014 8:29 AM

This is a question that I have wondered about. While this graphic gives an abbreviated, visual response to the question, it provides key insights into the issue. 

 

The image cleverly illustrates the signs of narcissism before depicting the negative effects of social media, which include ADHD, depression and narcissistic personality disorder and addiction, among others. 

 

It would be interesting to know the reasons WHY "People who use Facebook the most tend to have more narcissistic or insecure personalities" and why "those who [score] higher in narcissism also posted more often on twitter". While this post points out yet another important issue surrounding social media that cannot be ignored by business professionals and users alike, it does not provide enough information for the reasoning behind its statements.
