1. This is the original video that sparked my interest in the topic. I think it expresses perfectly how absorbed people are with their phones and how much they are missing out on by constantly looking down and not participating with whats going on around them. This video is a great combination of interesting visuals and quirky script that ensures the interest of the audience is maintained.

Do you remember the days before you carried around the world in your pocket?

 

That would have been before Tim Berners-Lee, a British computer scientist, submitted his proposal for what became the Web back in March of 1989. The Web turned 25 years old this week and it's hard to imagine an invention or process that has changed our lives as much in recent history, impacting everything from political movements to our love lives.

For one thing, I hated going to the library. So I am much happier having all the information in books (and more) right at my finger tips, all the time.

This picture shows how social media has developed over the years. It mentions how many people thought that social media was started with facebook, when in reality it was really started by other projects that you can see above. This picture/concept shows the differences between which sites took off and which didn't, depending on our cultural preferences.

7 Razones Por Que los Educadores Tienen Que USAR vereda Los Medios Sociales:

Celeste Weinstein's curator insight, February 20, 2014 9:51 PM

EDCI397 emphasizes the need for teachers to develop their PLN, and this blog post demonstrates the positive impact these connections can have on the classroom as a whole. Teachers who become connected through social media, such as Twitter or Pinterest, can gain the tools they need to better engage their students. Although I was initially reluctant to use Twitter and other social media as an educational tool, the collaborative opportunities and the chance to help students and their parents connect with the classroom and the world around them made me realize how essential the use of social media in the classroom can be.
