Millennials Rely On Social Media For News

Millennials Rely On Social Media For News | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it
Today's younger generation has a reputation of being glued to the cellphones and tablets. It's where they chat with their friends, find out the latest hot spots in town and, believe it or not, keep up with the world. In their own way, of course.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, March 20, 4:17 AM

Savvy broadcast and media companies are putting more emphasis on social networks to keep the public informed.  Recent studies have shown that the "younger generation" will keep up with the news and public events if they are presented well on social media.  Even print outlets such as newspapers and magazines are publishing digital editions to appeal to younger audiences equipped with social media tools.  The communications future has arrived!  Aloha, Russ.

12 Tools To Create Powerful Presentations Presentations have an important place in the corporate world. Whether presenting product releases or quarterly year reports, a nicely designed presentation captivates the audience. It increases the audience's interaction and interest. A well weaved narration of information in form of a presentation, can instill life to a plain and boring topic as well.

(From the article): Presentations have an important place in the corporate world. Whether presenting product releases or quarterly year reports, a nicely designed presentation captivates the audience. It increases the audience’s interaction and interest.  A well weaved narration of information in form of a presentation, can instill life to a plain and boring topic as well.

Apart from the corporate world, presentations are used in education as well. Teachers use presentations to deliver information that is successfully incorporated with videos and pictures, thus grabbing the attention of the students and enriching the learning process along the way.

While its hard to replace professional presentation designers, here is a list of some powerful tools that would help you to create interactive presentations in case of the absence of professional help.

50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it
So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

Like Apple and Microsoft, Google also wants a place in your classroom.

You probably knew that part, and likely have a vague awareness of what’s available (Google Drive, Google Form, etc.) But Sylvia Duckworth has gone a step further, giving you an extended metaphor (a train), a graphic (with color), and a brief description of each “stop” of the Google Apps for Education train.
