I'm including this discussion of bounce rates under Content Marketing because so many people ask about it and how to use it to improve page content.  Excellent discussion of this.

It could be that your site is designed with all the information on the home page, but that would be rare.  Bounce rate is a useful analytic point for arts organizations wanting to increase engagement online.  The strategy is to have content feeders on the home page.

12 Tips That Got Me Using Evernote Again

12 Tips That Got Me Using Evernote Again | Creativity and Technology | Scoop.it

"As I have added Evernote back into my routine, I find myself using it every day.

From the quick capture of ideas and notes, to the collection of reference material and documents, Evernote is my main information library.

The ability to access my notes from anywhere is a powerful capability that saves time and makes me more productive.

If you have moved away from Evernote or haven’t explored its full potential, I recommend trying these tips today."

On the info-tools side of infotention, I resisted Evernote for years, but now find it indispensible. I keep mailing lists, info on my classes, clip items for my hobbies, forward emails confirming online orders (email to evernote is most useful if you add your evernote email address to your address book)

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 31, 2014 12:17 PM

I've been using Evernote as part of my daily routine for the past 3 years, and couldn't do without it. Apart from the 12 (excellent) tips in the article, I've found the scheduler very useful for prompting actions - e.g. to write a blog post on a note I've written or a webclip that I've captured; the iPad version allows me to scan-in business cards, where the contact name is  auto-checked against LinkedIn, and I've configured the Evernote options such that any Google Search I perform automatically displays results from my Evernote notebooks next to the Google search results.

 

If you've never used Evernote - give it a try and follow some of the 12 tips given in this article.

Evernote is the bomb. I used the free version for years but use it so much that I decided to support them with my $$. I love the way it synchronizes my notes between devices. Easy sharing also.

Both of us are advocates for the use of technology to support instruction and to help learners gain independent learning skills. For years, as coaches consulting on technology integration, we observed classrooms where technology sat idle or to present lessons using new tools but the same way they teach: teacher-directed. The current system seems to encourage the use of technology for traditional teacher-directed methods.


The system needs to change from focusing on problems to rethinking the design of teaching and learning around how learners learn best. Personalized learning starts with the learner, not the technology!
