Webinar explores tips, advice as most states adopt the common standards

 

As states move toward implementing the Common Core State Standards, school principals must ensure they are fully equipped to help classroom teachers incorporate the standards as effectively as possible.

 

Not our old standards - “Average isn’t good enough,” said Mel Riddile, associate director for high school services with the National Association of Secondary School Principals and a former high school administrator.

Opportunity brings challenges - “Those of us who have really worked to increase the number of college- and career-ready students, see this as the best opportunity we’ve had in a long time, and with that opportunity comes challenges.”

Major Shift - The Common Core effort is causing a “major shift” in the education conversation, Riddile said, because it will force educators and administrators to measure something different and new.

Second-Order Change - “This is about a second order change—we have to learn new skills, new habits, and new behaviors. We have to unlearn what bad habits we have,” he said.

Standards, Classroom, School - School leaders must know what their school’s teachers know about the standards, and they must be knowledgeable about what needs to be done in the classroom as well as what must be done on a building level.

Culture Change - “This is a big culture change for schools,” Riddile said. School principals will need vision, focus, and a positive mindset as the process continues.

Implementation is the key - “The fidelity of implementation of these standards is going to be the ‘make it or break it’ issue,” Riddile said.

Leaders Grow Leaders - “We’ll have to collaborate [and] share leadership throughout the school; leaders are going to have to grow more leaders … and build the collective capacity of our staff.”

This seems to be one of the microblogging platforms of choice for teens at the moment. It centres around creative expression and although you can use it through the browser it has been designed for use on mobile. Great for creating video, audio and image up dates. Very nicely designed platform.

Elizabeth Catania's curator insight, November 25, 2013 2:05 PM

I think it is so exciting to teach English pedagogy through multimedia. New Literacies as they call it, is so innovative and truly allows a student to make deeper, more menaingful connections from what they already know to what they are working towards learning. Knowledge is only power when you can use it and apply it as you share what you know with others!

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers | Hostgator 1 penny | Scoop.it
Using Content Curation To Find New Customers.

 

Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.

 

As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites. Many have tried blogging to drive traffic to their website and due to a shortage of hours in a day they end up dropping the blog or hiring ghost writers to develop content for the site. We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.

 

Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.

 

Below are examples on how Scoop.it can drive traffic and help to show the world, yes the world that your business knows your market.

 

In this article are 3 areas that when done correctly can drive new traffic to your business or brand.

 

*** If you would like help setting up a Scoop.it traffic generator for your company. Contact Brian at 1-888-535-9139 or Email Me ideas@marketinghits.com ***

86% of internet users have taken steps online to remove or mask their digital footprints—ranging from clearing cookies to encrypting their email.55% of internet users have taken steps to avoid observation by specific people, organizations, or the government.

The representative survey of 792 internet users also finds that notable numbers of internet users say they have experienced problems because others stole their personal information or otherwise took advantage of their visibility online.

Peretti: Human Curation Beats SEO in the Social Web

Peretti: Human Curation Beats SEO in the Social Web | Hostgator 1 penny | Scoop.it

"Jonah Peretti, a co-founder of Huffington Post and CEO of Buzzfeed, said at PandoMonthly tonight in New York that he doesn’t care about SEO anymore. He views it as a broken system that optimizes for robots, not humans." Erin Griffith reports on Pandodaily.

 

“Media and content are human businesses, and it’s a problem for humans to give so much power to Google, which is a robot” he said.

 

Without saying Google is Skynet and evil, more and more people now see the flaws compared to what information networks like Twitter can produce (not saying the latter is perfect either). His conclusion is that you shouldn't care about SEO anymore but I think there's an even more compelling reason to move to Curation. Google is increasingly taking social signals into account so that Social is becoming the new SEO no matter which angle you take it from:

- whether because your audience will find you first on social networks

- whether because your content will be well positioned in Search results because human curators will pick it up (and therefore Google too).

 

The debate whether SEO still matters or not is not important. What's relevant is that great content that please human genuine interests will surface more than it used to thanks to the work of human curators.

New Context Search Engine For Twitter To Get The Most Relevant Topics, People And Content: Tame

New Context Search Engine For Twitter To Get The Most Relevant Topics, People And Content: Tame | Hostgator 1 penny | Scoop.it

From Official Website:
"Tame analyzes the last 24 hours of your timeline and crunches it down to a top 10 overview of the most relevant hashtags, users and links. Then you can use Tame like a search engine—and get the most relevant topics, people and content.

How does Tame work?
Check out this detailed presentation on Slideshare:
http://www.slideshare.net/Tame_it/tame-product-guideen

Use cases:
- Get a quick overview of your Twitter timeline;
- Keep up with topics you care about;
- Find specific hashtags on certain topics;
- Find opinion leaders and key communicators;
- Keep up with your constituency;
- Take Tame with you..."

From review article on TechCrunch:
"Tame is described as a "context search engine" for Twitter, the mobile and tablet-friendly web app analyses content from your Twitter followers or based on a specific search to algorithmically surface the top hashtags, the Twitter users most mentioned, and the top links shared over the past 24 hours. The idea is to give you an at-a-glance overview of content populated on Twitter via your own Twitter feed or topics that you explicitly wish to delve into, without having to do much upfront work.

In practice, Tame appears to work quite well out the gate. The UI offers a simple three column view consisting of Links, Topics, and People. These are either based on your Twitter timeline — the users you follow — or specific searches that you enter. A slider lets you adjust the time span from 1-24 hours. Clicking on a link, topic or person opens up a panel displaying the originating tweet (or tweets)..."
