5 Tips For Using Pinterest In Your Classroom | Edudemic

5 Tips For Using Pinterest In Your Classroom | Edudemic | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Pinterest has taken off in the past few months. According to a Shareholic study, it exceeds reddit, Google+, Linkedin, and YouTube as a referral source. It may seem as though everyone you know is Pinning something to the online bulletin boards to share their favorite articles, collections, and items available online.

 

This is a great social networking tool that you can use for educational purposes, whether you are a teacher or a student.

 

This tool can make it possible to create boards for specific projects and to collect and share lesson resources.

 

Be sure to see the education page!

5 Insights on Facebook vs Pinterest in Driving Sales - Infographic

5 Insights on Facebook vs Pinterest in Driving Sales - Infographic | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Pinterest has been grabbing the headlines recently as its network approaches 20 million users per month.

 

In March compete.com reported that Pinterest had received 18 million unique visitors with AppData reporting that the visual social network had received a record 4.4 million daily active users on March 18.

 

There are reports that Pinterest’s growth is slowing but just like Twitter and Facebook reports of its demise maybe slightly premature.

 

The Power of “Low Friction” Photo Sharing

 

Pinterest’s value to marketers is that it provides an easy to use platform for “pinning” images, photos and videos to your Pinterest account while also posting and sharing to your networks to Facebook and Twitter in the same process.


Pinterest reduces the effort and friction to share images on the social web which crowd sources your marketing and the spreading of your brand images.

Tweet Smarter not Harder – Part Two

Tweet Smarter not Harder – Part Two | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Introduction

 

If you read Part One of this series, you recall I discussed targeting and third-party applications to save you time and help you market you business and product or service more effectively.

 

Goals For This Post (Part Two)

The beauty of Lists and how they can help you use Twitter more effectively Discuss branding, content tweets, and promo tweets and why you need to understand the difference A note on targeted following

 

LISTS


I mentioned lists briefly in Part One for the purpose of finding targets but they do so much more. Here are my top ten reasons you should be using lists:

 

1) The number one reason to use lists: each list allows you to add up to 500 people aka tweeps. You can have up to 20 lists (public or private though I recommend public). I suck at math but even I can figure out that’s 10K people!

5 Tips to Prevent Digital Burnout and Maintain Good Mental Health

5 Tips to Prevent Digital Burnout and Maintain Good Mental Health | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The Internet's reach is so pervasive, it feels as though it has always been around. The reality is that the web is still in its infancy, and we don't really understand the risks it poses to our mental health. In fact, various experts, such as Larry D. Rosen, a psychologist and author of "iDisorder," believe that personal gadgets are making us mentally ill and are exacerbating other problems such as narcissism, depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Other mental health professionals have already identified disorders ranging from "Facebook depression" to "phantom vibration syndrome."

 

Realistically, most of us don't have the luxury of disconnecting from the Internet, particularly communication professionals whose work depends more and more on it.

 

However, there are various things you can do to curtail the negative effects it may have and prevent digital burnout.

In an earlier post I defined curation. In this post I would like us to revisit that definition and share how value can be gained by demonstrating how to use Scoop.it.

 

Reminder of What’s Social Media Curation?

 

With the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, the amount of information on the internet can be overwhelming and time consuming.

Twitter Basics for Students

Twitter Basics for Students | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Have you heard of Twitter? Do you like to tweet? Most likely you’ve utilized social networking websites such as Facebook. So why would you consider using Twitter?

 

To enhance and increase connections with classmates – and potentially your instructors, as you may not find it easy to network with students on other sites and it is very unlikely that your instructors will appear on your friends list. What if I told you that this can help you develop an academic network and support system?

 

===> By the end of this post I believe you will want to give it a try and more importantly, you’ll likely find it can be an effective personal learning network. <===
