Cyd Madsen's insight:

This is awesome.  So much theory of teaching collides with the practice.  This could be a great way for teachers in the trenches share their experience and get genuine change in education happening.

This is truly a great tool in my estimation, but theory and reality also collide with technology. If you are not 1:1 then the potential of the app is not getting used in the best way that it can.

Good point Denise. I'm hoping it's something school will grow into over time.

Marketers, Don't Just Publish; Be a Publisher

Marketers, Don't Just Publish; Be a Publisher | Emerging Cultural Trends | Scoop.it

If you want to be a successful marketer today, you need to be part data analyst and part publisher. We hear a lot about the former, but the latter is critical too. We’re all publishers (that includes me and our own marketing and sales site, of course) but many companies are only starting to come to terms with what that actually means in terms of talent and processes.

 

Anyone who’s a marketing leader in a large organization should watch this video. Robert Tas, managing director and head of digital marketing at JP Morgan Chase, explains what’s important when it comes to becoming a sophisticated publishing company. As he says, one of the areas JP Morgan Chase sees as a big opportunity is content experiences across all sorts of devices 24 hours a day.

 

It requires a fundamentally different way to look at information, and how to present it to people. It’s part of the content avalanche I’ve discussed earlier. Part of the great complexity around content is not just generating it, but the pipes you need to have in place to vet it and place it wherever (and whenever) your customers are. So this isn't about managing writers and designers; it's about publishing, which means the ability to manage a sophisticated content supply chain with processes, checks, oversight, metrics, and operations....

"WITHOUT HUMOR, LIFE ISN’T WORTH LIVING

The world is such a serious place. Long hours and heavy brainpower are the norm for us because we solve complex challenges for our customers everyday and bust ass doing it.

How To Use Pinterest For Business – Three Tips From A Pinterest Super User | Business 2 Community

How To Use Pinterest For Business – Three Tips From A Pinterest Super User | Business 2 Community | Emerging Cultural Trends | Scoop.it

We hear that Pinterest is a really only used by younger females – so let me introduce you to Dan Ashbach, who is a retired airline pilot, just to provide a different perspective. You might have read my article about how many boards should we have on Pinterest where I comment that Dan has just 38 boards (I wonder if that is a coincidence that he has been married for 38 years) that versus many accounts I see with well over 100 Pinterest boards.

 

Dan recently participated in a Google Plus Hangout with PinLeague and this is a recap of some of his ideas and perspectives about Pinterest as a super user with over 1.5 million followers. Yes I know you usually expect me to share tips about content marketing and social media for business, but I think you will find the ideas Dan shares provides an interesting insight into what a Pinterest super user thinks. Dan started to see his Pinterest boards grow at a fast rate in 2012, building from a few thousand followers to over a million followers....
