Is Social Media Relevant? Take the Quiz


Via Gust MEES
James Jandebeur's insight:

According to Facebook's news page, the service has 1.23 billion active users, a little over 20% of the population of the world. Twitter has around 200 million. These services, or something like them, have become increasingly important in our lives, influencing the news media and a variety of public decision making processes. Between a need for security and utility, we need to start learning, then teaching, then learning some more, how to best use social media, and classrooms are not the only place where this needs to be done.

NASA's Eyes on the Solar System

NASA's Eyes on the Solar System | Computer Enhanced Teaching | Scoop.it

Eyes on the Solar System is a 3-D environment full of real NASA mission data. You control space and time.

James Jandebeur's insight:

After "you control space and time", I have little to say. It does require a download, so it is probably going to be mostly for a teacher in front of a class, but it makes a good show. Take the tours.

The Science Of REAL Hoverboards - YouTube

Share your videos with friends, family, and the world
James Jandebeur's insight:

Sadly but unsurprisingly, the hoverboard commercial was not real, but there is hope in the "ionocraft", which Mr. Green talks about in the video from around the two minute mark to the end. It uses ionization of the air around it to float, but would also use massive amounts of electricity for any significant weight. Still, it has some potential.

I have started a subject on Pearltrees related to this one in order to access the information and techniques unique to that site. Pearltrees is another curation site, more visual than scoop.it but as far as I can tell so far less connected with social media sites. Still, it provides a different type of resource for curators that may be useful.

25 Killer Websites that Make You Cleverer | Computer Enhanced Teaching | Scoop.it
There are countless websites out there that are geared to make you smarter and more brilliant for either a low or no cost. Here are just 25 killer websites.
James Jandebeur's insight:

Lifehack.org is just a great resource overall, and this page has twenty-four good sites for education and self-improvement. I tend to automatically be leery of online dating advice, so I can't recommend all 25. Teachers and adult students should probably be the ones going to this page.

James Jandebeur's insight:

Facebook can be a dangerous place. It is too easy to accidentally reveal information that should not be public, or meet people with poor intent. Fakebook can act as a simulator for learning Facebook in a secure environment. There is a similar site for Twitter, called, simply enough, FakeTwitter.
