"This week I’ve been getting excited about using Kahoot in the classroom. Kahoot delivers online quizzes and surveys to your students.


It works very similar to the more well-known Socrative. The teacher displays the question and the answers on the beamer or tv in the front of the classroom. The students see the corresponding icon and color on their screen. They have 30 seconds to answer on their devices and get points for every question they answer right. The quicker they answer the more points they receive. After each question the top 5 students are shown on the board with their scores. This is where it gets exciting. The students love this immediate feedback and want to get to the top position. I have never seen students so focused on answering the questions correctly."

What Is The Ideal Length Of A Tweet (And Other Communications)? - Edudemic | BYOD | Scoop.it

"There are so many ways that teachers are using social media –  both in the classroom and for their own professional development. From Instagram   and Facebook in the classroom to Twitter lists and hashtags for their PLN, there are so many social networks and so much content to choose from when you’re looking. You know that whether you’re browsing through your Twitter feed or searching on Pinterest, there are certain things that catch your eye and other things that blend into the background. You pick and choose what looks interesting to you.

 

When you’re the creator of the content, however – either for professional use with other teachers or for student’s consumption – you need to be concerned with getting your message out there in a way that ensures it isn’t the content that is blending into the background. The handy infographic below takes a look at the ideal length for all of your social media postings.  Keep reading to learn more!"

Tom Cockburn's curator insight, June 24, 5:49 AM

Of course some types of tweets are best left unposted whatever size they are

Chris Eller's curator insight, June 24, 1:44 PM

This is a topic I, personally, have been wrestling with recently. If you look at many of the forms of communication listed in the infographic, the common denominator is how short our attention span is when consuming online information.


For example, 


  • Video - 3 to 3.5 minutes
  • Presentation (sermon?) - 18 minutes
  • Podcast - 22 minutes
  • Headline - 60 characters


Based on my own informal research at First Family Church, I would have to agree with the the overall consensus of these findings. A common complaint I receive in our Small Group Curriculum Evaluations is that we provide too much information. Consequently, I am looking for ways to break our teaching into even smaller chunks and develop teaching helps (e.g. handouts) that are available by clicking a link rather than including in the formal lesson.


From a church perspective, would it be too frightening to try and evaluate how engaged people are during a 40 to 50 minute sermon? A very informal indication could be how many people are using their phones or mobile devices during a sermon. Yes, they have their Bible on their device, and it is likely they are referring to the digital Bible occasionally, but if someone is staring intently at their phone or tablet for an extended period of time during the sermon, odds are good they have transitioned to something else and are focused on the content on their device rather than actively listening to the sermon.


If you have the courage, try and see how many in your church this Sunday are staring at their mobile devices rather than actively listening to your sermon.


What are your thoughts? Will the church need to adjust its centuries-old method of teaching as the attention span of church attenders shrinks?
