With $30 Million More in Hand, IFTTT Looks to the Internet of Things

With $30 Million More in Hand, IFTTT Looks to the Internet of Things | Digital Tools Tips and Hacks | Scoop.it
The idea behind the company, according to co-founder Linden Tibbets, is to give people more creative control over the many online services they use on a daily basis.
Fliss Clooney's insight:

I already love using IFTTT ( If this then that) to link by Twitter feed with Wordpress, my Dropbox with Instagram, this article links IFTTT with the  Internet of Things . 

“The way we see the Internet of Things playing out, there’s going to be a need for an operating system that’s detached from any specific device,” Linden Tibbets said. “What we’re doing now is the foundation for that.”

There are lots of online alternatives which let you create great looking presentations on any device.

I have used a variety of these over the years...but I still see Powerpoint used by students even if given a choice of how to present.  Teachers stay safe with Powerpoint, and as students do not see these applications modelled, don't feel the need to extend themselves either.

Understanding your digital footprint - new opportunities!

Understanding your digital footprint - new opportunities! | Digital Tools Tips and Hacks | Scoop.it

Just like a tattoo, your digital reputation is an expression of yourself. It is formed and added to by you and others over time. Teaching students to manage their digital footprint really starts with the adults. Teachers can’t teach this effectively if they, themselves have not managed their own digital footprint. It is also important not to confuse managing a digital footprint with being hidden or private. Branding our identities has become more and more important in the digital age and if students and teachers aren’t actively managing their digital footprint, then who is? Managing your digital footprint starts with asking questions like: Who are you? What do you stand for? What are your passions and beliefs? The important lesson with managing your digital footprint is that everything we do online should represent who we are and what we stand for and we must have the knowledge that this representation will stick with us potentially forever. (Nielsen, 2010).

How Users Interact On Pinterest, Study Reveals User Habits

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, February 10, 2014 11:20 AM

I was introduced to Pinterest by one of my students about six months before the boom that made Pinterest a household word.


I wish I'd seized the opportunity and jumped right in. However, at first I just didn't get it.  Now in hindsight I realize that Pinterest is a curation platform-- one that appeals to millions.  Needless to say I'm now curating a dozen different interests!
