This is a great tool for controlling Twitter chats. It even records them for playback and delivers a whole load of statistics. This is a really useful tool for anyone running Twitter discusions.

Focus on relationships, not facts

Add value by enabling things to happen, not by doing the work

Practice seeing the bigger picture, not mastering the details

Rely on “executive presence” to project confidence, not on having all the facts or answers

Want to Make Blog Posts More Engaging? Apply These 15 Tricks

Want to Make Blog Posts More Engaging? Apply These 15 Tricks | Communicating with interest | Scoop.it
There are two primary approaches to make blog posts more engaging. The first is to make your content scannable. Ie, to work with readers’ existing online reading habits. Second, create content so good that at least some users will actually slow down and take the time to read it word for word.
Gav Morris's insight:

"According to usability specialist Jakob Nielsen, on average readers actually read only about 28% of words on the page."

 

Is that left to right or up and down?

Women's Restroom Sign Breaks Stereotypes

Women's Restroom Sign Breaks Stereotypes | Communicating with interest | Scoop.it

The It Was Never a Dress campaign is not only taking social media by storm, it is also changing the way we view the traditional women's bathroom sign. We see that the men's figure wears pants and the women's symbol wears a dress, but what if it was never meant to be a dress in the first place?  Tania Katan launched the popular #ItWasNeverADress campaign at last week's 'Girls in Tech' conference with the idea that the female figure is instead wearing a cape, asserting that women can be superheroes or anything else they choose to be."

I love this! Unit 3: Cultural landscape and norms.

Katie's curator insight, May 22, 12:19 PM

In this article it suggest that the stereotypical dress for the the women bathroom sign is not a dress, but a cape. This hows that women can be superheroes or whatever they want to be. Still today there is a lack of women in he workforce compared to men. For every 4 men working working for Google there is 1 women and half of them quit because of the poor work environment. I think this helps represent that women are capable of anything. This is an example of women in the workforce and gender equity.  

Seth Forman's curator insight, May 26, 9:08 PM

Summary: This article basically explains the story of the recently emerged #ItWasNeverADress campaign. This is a pretty cool article because I never really payed attention to how even a restroom sign could be considered gender inequality. 

 

Insight: This article is relevant to unit 6 because gender inequality is an important measure of development.
