How Google+ Is Different From Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn | Peter G McDermott

How Google+ Is Different From Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn | Peter G McDermott | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Because Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn have established themselves over the years, some find it hard to understand what Google+ aims to accomplish. It’s not here to trump Facebook, push out Twitter or overshadow LinkedIn, it’s just here to offer people a new and more convenient way to discover and connect.

 

The truth of the matter, though, is that once you get it…you get it.

Defining Social Learning

Defining Social Learning | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Two years after we published The New Social Learning, I still hear people say “there is no definition” or worse yet, defining it in truly silly ways. A post with a slide of my definition is consistently one of the most popular posts on this site so I thought people might appreciate more on how I define the terms and what social learning is not. I’ll frame this in the questions I’m often asked.

The Most Common Latin Words Used in English | Voxy Blog | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Did you ever think that those of us with Latin origins would actually know some Latin? Not necessarily! Although Spanish, French, Portuguese and Italian (among others) all originate from Latin, your average native speaker may not know a word of traditional Latin.
