This is a picture of our world and the real way that we are connected in real time from Facebook. It's amazing! Share this everywhere!

Maegan Connor's curator insight, December 17, 2013 12:23 PM

This map amazes me because of just how big Facebook has become after starting as a small site for college kids in the U.S. to connect on.  Now it is one of the largest contributing factors to globalization as it allows people from various continents to connect to others with a simple Internet connection.  It has helped people of different cultures come together and as we saw in class, it helps spread word of different political happenings that regular news media tries to hide from us.  

It's also really interesting to see how China is completely off the grid and so is central and Saharan Africa because in terms of modern day globalization, they are not areas that participate in many global affairs and with the prominence Facebook holds in today's world, the parts of the world that are missing are much stranger to us in cultural terms.

This is helpful to understand some of these words floating around...like Crowdsourcing - raising money for small business/creative projects through social media. Perhaps school lbraries could take advantage of some new ways to fundraise through social media.

Didn't know about Bacn, but glad to learn where meme's come from.

Educational Radiotelevision Greece's curator insight, April 26, 2013 2:51 PM

Education technology has changed what’s possible in learning.

 

No longer are students confined to desks, textbooks, or even classrooms or schools. Today, a student has at least the potential for access to apps, an incredible catalogue of videos, podcasts, learning simulations, digital communities and so much more, all through a simple internet connection.

 

The following 7 educational technology platforms are good representatives of some of these changes, and the chart above is a snapshot of how exactly they’ve changed what’s possible in learning, from new sources of data to the potential for a global audience.

 

1. MOOCs

2. Skillbuilder websites

3. Blackboard Learn

4. Skype in the Classroom

5. Khan Academy

6. YouTube Edu

7. iTunesU

As a teacher I try to expose children to technology. Some of them pick it up quickly, some of them are cautious. And yes we are preparing them for jobs that don't yet exist!

Students this past year have found using mobile devices and writing quite a challenge. This is a thought-provoking article that will help me to approach the use of mobile devices in education from a more positive angle
