Technology Integration in Education #1: Twitter

Technology Integration in Education #1: Twitter | digital technologies | Scoop.it
I am writing a series of blog posts related to the integration of technology in the classroom. Each blog post will include practical examples of how to use a specific tool and integrate it into you...

 

We are living in revolutionary times. It is urgent that we think of education, children and teaching differently from the past. The classroom needs to be a place of innovation where students are able to connect with others, feel empowered and curious and have a say in their learning. Technology provides us with tools to expand our minds and extend our reach (Sir Ken Robinson, 2014).

Why (And How) Teachers Are Using Twitter | Social Media in Education [Infographic] | digital technologies | Scoop.it

Oh, Twitter. You’re so useful for teachers. You connect educators so that they can share tools, tips and tricks, offer insight, and support one another. You bring your sexy social media-ness into the classroom to keep kids interested in what they’re learning when they think they’re actually (sort of) having fun instead.

How Long Should Your Content Be? What Works On Blogs, Facebook & More

How Long Should Your Content Be? What Works On Blogs, Facebook & More | digital technologies | Scoop.it

Ideal content length is something with which B2B and B2C marketers across industries constantly struggle. Unfortunately, the most common answer to content-length questions is the often-dreaded, extremely-ambiguous response that is the reply to many of marketing’s toughest questions: “It depends.”

 

And though ideal content length really does hinge on a variety of factors including industry norms and audience engagement, “it depends” isn’t very helpful for marketers looking for actionable advice.

 

However, though there aren’t any hard and fast rules when it comes to content length, there are general guidelines that can be applied when creating content, despite the industry or audience it is intended for.

 

So, how long should your content be? Here are some general content-length guidelines, organized by content type:...

“Being lucky is important in life!” says bingo company | Bad PR

“Being lucky is important in life!” says bingo company | Bad PR | digital technologies | Scoop.it

...It seems that luck is a simple affair – if you don’t get a parking ticket while having sex in your car, you’re one of the lucky ones amongst us. However, if you don’t self-report as ‘lucky’ in an online survey, it’s clearly your own fault:

However, two in five people who say they are unlucky have never done anything superstitious to turn around their luck with 61 per cent of them saying they would happily walk under a ladder.

There may be a very good reason why people considered to be unlucky haven’t gone out of their way to ‘turn their luck around’, namely that that isn’t really a thing. But, far be it to point out such minor details, when the stakes of poor luck are so high:

Unlucky people are also twice as likely to be single and will probably not have any children.

Naturally, the company who paid for this ‘research’ have their own vested axe to grind:
