Does (the Use of)Twitter Improve Education?

Does (the Use of)Twitter Improve Education? | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"There has been post after post acknowledging how educators love Twitter while also encouraging others to use it themselves. With that though comes skeptics (as there should be), questioning whether the use of Twitter is beneficial to educators. I have thought about that question a lot and I can give a definitive answer: yes and no ( I am 100% certain of this).

 

So to prove this, we have to look at a few things. First off, we have to look at how educators are using Twitter. Simply signing up for Twitter doesn’t improve anything in your classroom (similar to the notion that having a Twitter account will make people do inappropriate things and cyberbully). It all comes down to the use of it. I offer two scenarios in my own use of Twitter below."

Leadership Courage: Creating A Culture Where People Feel Safe To Take Risks | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
The human ingenuity within any organisation are it's greatest competitive advantage. Yet according to the latest statistics, over half of todays workers are disengaged . When leaders are committed and actively working to engage, inspire and embolden – they unleash untapped potential and raise the bar not just on productivity, but on the value their organization contributes to all stakeholders.

Käyttökokemus ratkaisee verkossa

Käyttökokemus ratkaisee verkossa | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Viime vuosina käyttökokemus (user experience, UX) on noussut ratkaisevaksi kilpailutekijäksi, joka erottaa verkkopalvelun muista. Valta verkossa on asiakkaalla ja he ovat muuttuneet yhä valikoivemmiksi sen suhteen, millaista kokemusta he vaativat. Verkkopalvelun tulee olla miellyttävä ja helppo käyttää, kaunis, nopea ja funktionaalinen. Hyvä käyttökokemus koukuttaa käyttäjät palaamaan sivustolle ja suosittelemaan sitä verkostoilleen. Se rakentaa positiivista brändimielikuvaa, jonka arvo voi olla mittaamaton.

 

Mistä on hyvät käyttökokemukset tehty?

Kysely: Suuri osa eduskuntapuolueista on valmis laskemaan e-kirjan arvonlisäveroa | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Kirjamyynnin jo usean vuoden jatkunut laskusuunta on nostanut jälleen esiin vaatimuksen kirjan arvonlisäverotuksen laskemisesta. Etenkin sähköisen kirjan arvonlisäveroa haluttaisiin laskea.
