Once upon a time Apple had a big, industry leading product that they fearlessly overshadowed by releasing a slightly cheaper, more portable version. That was January, 2004 and the product was the iPod mini.

How Much Data Is Generated On Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Tinder & WhatsApp Every Minute? | AllTwitter | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

Here’s the thing: the internet never sleeps.

 

Which means data never sleeps, and the internet sure likes to use up a lot of it. How much? In any given minute, 277,000 tweets are published on Twitter, 216,000 photos are sent to Instagram and 8,333 videos are shared on Vine.

 

And we’re just getting started. Over that same 60 second period, 347,222 photos are sent on WhatsApp, 416,667 swipes are made on Tinder and 3,472 images are pinned on Pinterest.

 

And if you think that’s impressive, Google receives 4 millions search queries, Facebook users share 2.46 million pieces of content and 204 million email messages are sent each and every minute of the day.

 

This visual from DOMO looks at how much data is generated every minute across the net....

Free or low cost apps

A/Prof Jon Willis's curator insight, June 16, 4:12 PM

Although this is a relatively trivial example, the idea of a Bingo approach to skills building is an interesting one - at UQ we're using a passport as part of engagement processes with Aboriginal school students visiting the university. For every activity they participate in, there is a unique stamp for their passport. The bingo card idea is similar so that across a semester, students fill up their bingo card with activities that build their skills in a range of domains, or across a range of technologies or tools.

What Is The Ideal Length Of A Tweet (And Other Communications)? - Edudemic

What Is The Ideal Length Of A Tweet (And Other Communications)? - Edudemic | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"There are so many ways that teachers are using social media –  both in the classroom and for their own professional development. From Instagram   and Facebook in the classroom to Twitter lists and hashtags for their PLN, there are so many social networks and so much content to choose from when you’re looking. You know that whether you’re browsing through your Twitter feed or searching on Pinterest, there are certain things that catch your eye and other things that blend into the background. You pick and choose what looks interesting to you.

 

When you’re the creator of the content, however – either for professional use with other teachers or for student’s consumption – you need to be concerned with getting your message out there in a way that ensures it isn’t the content that is blending into the background. The handy infographic below takes a look at the ideal length for all of your social media postings.  Keep reading to learn more!"

Teachers, lawyers, Doctors, Sports professionals, broadcasters, retired folk, businessmen, people who like to play with their mobile phones..  Everyone needs to know how to tweet well.  Explain that to your 90 year old grandmother!

Tom Cockburn's curator insight, June 24, 2:49 AM

Of course some types of tweets are best left unposted whatever size they are

Chris Eller's curator insight, June 24, 10:44 AM

This is a topic I, personally, have been wrestling with recently. If you look at many of the forms of communication listed in the infographic, the common denominator is how short our attention span is when consuming online information.


For example, 


  • Video - 3 to 3.5 minutes
  • Presentation (sermon?) - 18 minutes
  • Podcast - 22 minutes
  • Headline - 60 characters


Based on my own informal research at First Family Church, I would have to agree with the the overall consensus of these findings. A common complaint I receive in our Small Group Curriculum Evaluations is that we provide too much information. Consequently, I am looking for ways to break our teaching into even smaller chunks and develop teaching helps (e.g. handouts) that are available by clicking a link rather than including in the formal lesson.


From a church perspective, would it be too frightening to try and evaluate how engaged people are during a 40 to 50 minute sermon? A very informal indication could be how many people are using their phones or mobile devices during a sermon. Yes, they have their Bible on their device, and it is likely they are referring to the digital Bible occasionally, but if someone is staring intently at their phone or tablet for an extended period of time during the sermon, odds are good they have transitioned to something else and are focused on the content on their device rather than actively listening to the sermon.


If you have the courage, try and see how many in your church this Sunday are staring at their mobile devices rather than actively listening to your sermon.


What are your thoughts? Will the church need to adjust its centuries-old method of teaching as the attention span of church attenders shrinks?

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Technology integration in instruction is a process that starts with setting out clearly defined objectives and ends with assessing learning outcomes against these objectives, and all along the way several tools and strategies are employed to attend to the overall performance of this process. Hence, the first question teachers need to ponder when thinking about using technology in class is not what kind of technology to use but what do they want to achieve behind using this technology? On a deeper level, they need to find answers to questions such as: Does this technology constitute a a good addition to the learning task ?  Can the same learning task be performed without using technology? These and several other questions  should come to the forefront when you start planning a technology-based learning activity.
