A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic

A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Do you know the history of social media? Think we'll remember Facebook in 20 years? This detailed timeline is a must-see.


Social media began decades before the Facebook era. It started, more or less, with CompuServe and Arpanet back in 1969. A couple years later, the first-ever email was sent.

It has evolved over the past few decades into a powerful tool, as seen in this social media history timeline. With so much that’s happened over the past few decades, we can only guess what’s coming next for social media.

29 Ways to Raise Creative Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

29 Ways to Raise Creative Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Fostering creative thinking inside our classrooms is one of the essential goals of our teaching. Ask any teacher today about what they want their students to develop and creativity will definitely be featured in their answers. Creativity is also a process that follows a thinking path, one that is inquisitive and noisy.  Saying that it is a process implies that it is learnable but it is not learned in the same rigorous way other thinking skills are learned.

lbligen's insight:

According to Ms. Kolk, Common Core Standards are a list of expectations, not a list of what to teach.  It is seen as a gift, to collaborate with colleagues, explore ideas and discuss ways to enhance student learning. By focusing on "results rather than means" we can use what ever tools, skills, knowledge and experiences that is helpful to reach these list of expectations.It is most effective when using project based learning strategies.Students can build upon their skills and performances to meet a wide selection of common core standards.
