The article, in summary, goes over how there are so many users of social media around the world, especially young adults. Apparently, terrorists absolutely love twitter. What we need to realize is that social media can be taken as a terrorism breeding house, and everyone is subjugated to its danger.

This applies to terrorism in Unit 4. How? Instead of direct attacks like 9/11, people are now targeted worlds away. And that's far more terrifying.

Just over a week ago, I attended a great conference organized by Ray Wang CEO of Constellation Research - I tweeted almost 2000 times - he'd gamified the tweeting and set up a leaderboard, so it raised my competitive instincts. it was interesting to see for myself what would cause me to send out so many tweets - it was a fascinating conference - and you scored more points with photos, so during the conference I learned to illustrate almost every tweet with photos.

App of the Week: Post-it Plus brings Post-it notes into the digital age - GeekWire | Enrjtk Educatr | Scoop.it

"As someone who writes fiction for fun in my off hours, Post-it notes have been an integral part of my writing process. At some point in a story’s development, I usually end up covering a wall somewhere with a series of multi-colored notes that looks like something out of a crime procedural murder investigation.

 

The downside to all that is it’s hard to take all of the structure I put up on the wall and translate it into a digital format that travels with me while I’m using other tools to write the story itself. That’s why 3M created Post-it Plus, an app that allows people to use their iPhone and iPad to scan and digitize groups of sticky notes all in one fell swoop.

Users just open up the app, tap on the camera button,

 

Users just open up the app, tap on the camera button, and line it up with a group of notes. Once they take a snapshot, the app will separate out each discrete note from the image and save them all on a virtual board with the same layout that they had in meatspace."

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.


They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.

How Do We Learn? How Should We Learn?

How Do We Learn? How Should We Learn? | Enrjtk Educatr | Scoop.it

If I ask you or your students, "How do you learn," how many of you could clearly articulate this process? If you can, are the strategies you're using the best ones for learning? 

 

Apply New Learning Often and in Meaningful Contexts


The more you can apply what you’re learning to your every day, the more it’ll stick in your head. The reason is simple. When you’re learning by doing, you’re implementing everything that makes our memory work. When you’re able to connect what you’re learning with a real world task, that forms the bonds in your brain, and subsequently the skills you’re learning will stick around.


We learn best when we have context, and that applies to new skills as much as it does random facts in school. That’s why something like the transfer of learning is helpful when your learning a new skill. This means you’re applying your new skills in your day to day life in a context that matters.

How to be truly happy at work, by Chris Gaborit

How to be truly happy at work, by Chris Gaborit | Enrjtk Educatr | Scoop.it

There have been many letdowns in my life and valleys along the way. I was promised promotions from managers that never eventuated, pay raises that I never saw, and opportunities that never came.

 

Today, however, I am so happy and where I wanted to be. I am financially blessed and in love with life. However, life was not always so happy. What are the keys to reaching your goals and being where you want to be?

 

1. Commit to give 100% in all you do.

From the first time in Grade 1 when teams and captains were chosen at school, I wanted to be the captain. I have always wanted to be financially successful and be a leader. Maybe it is because we were so poor as a family that I had to ride my old bike every morning to the bakery to buy 20 cents worth of 2-day-old chook (chicken) bread, which we ended up eating, or maybe because we could not afford real milk or butter.
