Why We're All Suddenly Obsessed With Pinterest

Why We're All Suddenly Obsessed With Pinterest | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

It's a good question! The fact is that blogs are filled with articles about Pinterest. For my part, I am absolutely convinced that this kind of social media will wreak havoc among users... and you? [note mg]

 

It's addictive, fun, visually appealing, and easy, so it's no wonder Pinterest, the popular visual bookmarking site, has hooked millions of users. That said, the site’s growth (below) was fairly flat from its launch in early 2010 until September 2011. But since then, it’s simply been going gangbusters, begging the question--why now? Here are three reasons why we think it’s become so attractive.

 

1. Pinterest rides (and defines) a new trend: social relevance.

 

Pinterest is successfully riding a new trend wave in the social space, moving mechanisms for content sharing beyond connections (friends) and towards relevance, effectively broadening the social horizon for us content addicts.

Permiten crear mapas conceptuales online. “Al elaborar estos esquemas, el estudiante realiza un esfuerzo importante para distinguir lo esencial de lo superfluo y procesa mejor la información. Estos mapas son como un árbol que entrelaza conceptos clave sobre una temática; aportan una visión global”. Estas aplicaciones permiten trabajar de forma individual y colectiva; los mapas pueden ser diseñados por diferentes estudiantes desde distintos lugares, siempre y cuando estén conectados a Internet. Además, se puede garbar el proceso de elaboración del mapa y reproducirlo cuantas veces se quiera. Una vez finalizados, los estudiantes pueden quedar para exponer la parte que han realizado.

[Slideshare] Future of Learning and Technology 2020: Preparing for change

The education landscape of 2020 will be characterized by the blurring of boundaries. Learning anywhere and anytime will be commonplace in many different ways based on the ubiquitous and innovative use of technology. Our organizations face a duality of change—conceptual and technological—regarding the practices of education and learning. The practices of teaching, presenting and learning will undergo fundamental change as it responds to global, social, political, technological and of course, learning research trends. Will your organization be ready and prepared to take advantage of these seismic changes to education, learning and technology?

The Evolution of Learning Technologies

Human beings have always been seekers of knowledge. The minute we discover something new, we want to share it with others and move onto the next achievement. Since the beginning of recorded history (and probably before) we have always strived to discover the mysteries of the planet, of Earth and of ourselves. How has learning evolved over the course of human history and what might the future hold for us?
