Facebook may be looking to acquire the navigation app Waze. The move would likely bolster the site's mobile experience.
Sonia Thomas's insight:

Facebook continually enhances its online experience by buying complementary companies and integrating services onto the site. As the service evolves, trainers will need to update and modify their page or group to maintain its usefulness.

Social Media Basics

Social Media Basics | Memory and Learning | Scoop.it
Research indicates that as much as 70 percent of workplace learning
is informal, occurring outside the classroom and in the spaces
between formal training events.
Sonia Thomas's insight:

Jane Bozarth discusses how to select the right social media tool for your learning community. Every community will have its own characteristics. Jane suggests that trainers find out what learners are already using and begin with the most popular tool. She goes on to say that "all tools are the means to an end (better transfer of learning, more engagement in the learning process, growth of a learning community, support for informal learning), but they are not ends in themselves". The best way to learn which tool will serve you and your trainees needs is to start participating. Sign up, log in and participate. It's the best way to learn.

Brainwalking: In Search of Better Brainstorms | trainingmag.com | Memory and Learning | Scoop.it

Some people did think better on their feet. (Hemingway certainly thought he did. He used to write standing up, with his typewriter on top of his bureau.) In any case, it’s an energizing and fun way to start the day.

Sonia Thomas's insight:

A powerful way to get new ideas when trying to solve a problem. It facilitates "idea building and piggybacking". Unlike brainwriting where the paper moves around the room, in brainwalking the people move from station to station building on each other's ideas. This is a great way to boost energy! And you can keep generating ideas throughout the day as people "walk the walls' during breaks.

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | Memory and Learning | Scoop.it

TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

 

Here are some of the specific ways educators are using Twitter to collaborate:

Twitter provides a great opportunity to collaborate with educators outside of your local physical community. The exchange of ideas and perspectives can reenergize your career. “Twitter is often just the introduction — the virtual handshake that opens the door to a deeper collaboration”

Learning Science Through Computer Games and Simulations

Learning Science Through Computer Games and Simulations | Memory and Learning | Scoop.it
At a time when scientific and technological competence is vital to the nation's future, the weak performance of U.S. students in science reflects the uneven quality of current science education.
Sonia Thomas's insight:

In interesting exploration of using technology to stimulate learning in science. Chapter 2 is devoted to explaining the differences between simulations and games. This is valuable for any subject you want to teach. The conclusion at the end of this chapter says it all: "Computer simulations and games have great potential to catalyze and support inquiry-based approaches to science instruction, overcoming current barriers to widespread use of these approaches. As digital technologies, computer simulations and games appeal to young people who are increasingly
immersed in digital media throughout the day."

Neuron growth 'cuts memory space'

Neuron growth 'cuts memory space' | Memory and Learning | Scoop.it
The reason we struggle to recall memories from our early childhood is down to high levels of neuron production during the first years of life, say Canadian researchers.
Sonia Thomas's insight:

Parents often complain that they have had to tell young children the same thing over and over again. This new study may have the reason why. This may be a perfectly normal and developmentally appropriate result brain development. Perhaps if parents understood this they wouldn't become quite so frustrated. This is an excellent reminder that young children are not small adults.
