The Ultimate Simplified Guide to The Use of Evernote in Education

The Ultimate Simplified Guide to The Use of Evernote in Education | New Media and Web 2.0 Tools for Tutors | Scoop.it

Evernote is a great web service and software application that we can use in education. A lot of ink has been shed on this topic and just one click in a search engine is enough to get hundreds of links to guides and tutorials about Evernote. I have been going through so many of these resources and have collected ideas, videos, notes and many more. If you are a loyal reader to my blog ( I am glad most of you are ) you would clearly notice that guides I write here are different in that they are simple. to the point, address teachers and students direct need, and most of all written in an easy and simple language. In this regard, I am working on an ebook that will contain all the guides I have posted here so far but will be available for free only to my subscribers. Without any further ado, let us get back to our guide.

How Images Impact us Online [Infographic]

How Images Impact us Online [Infographic] | New Media and Web 2.0 Tools for Tutors | Scoop.it

This infographic is a fascinating look at images and the web and their affect on us when making decisions about a particular company, how important they are when it comes to selling products online and much more.

 

Here is one thing that caught my attention:

 

How images affect Social Engagement

 

Social media posts also benefit from adding photos. According to an analysis by Web Liquid (conducted pre-Timeline), Facebook posts with photos have the highest user engagement than any other post

Engagement rate with Facebook posts by type

 

*0.37% Photo

*0.31% Video

*0.27% Test Only

*0.15% Link

 

We are bombarded with too much text, images have a way of connecting with the reader that can persuade, create a connection, affect your decision to purchase a product and much more

You’re going to want to print out this infographic and, at the very least, share it with your fellow teachers and even students. It’s all about the history of education technology and could be used to educate just about anyone on how far we’ve come in a short period of time. We did a more in-depth look at the history of education technology about a year agobut this infographic is a lot more… fun.Anyway, the below infographic from CTU can be viewed below or downloaded as a PDF here (so you can fire up that color printer). Enjoy the walk down memory lane!

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools | New Media and Web 2.0 Tools for Tutors | Scoop.it
What is social media curation?
Today, with the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, it can be overwhelming searching for information on the internet. As a result, the act of filtering, selecting, reviewing and providing commentary with a perspective on an article, or collection of articles, have become increasingly important. This is known as social media curation. Recently, I had posed the question : What is a social media curator” on Linkedin . I was intrigued on the variety of responses I received. There is definitely different interpretations on what it really is. The response that I agreed with read: ”A good media curator is someone who reads extensively, then can pull content and organize it in a logical way for the benefit of others. Web 2.0+ has an immense amount of information. Curators sort through it, find the wheat in the chaff, and present it in a friendly manner” . I would agree with this definition however would also add that a curator would also share their perspective and perhaps alternative ( or supporting) viewpoint using the posts that they have selected.

Using the Facebook group as a learning management system: An exploratory study - Wang - 2011 - British Journal of Educational Technology - Wiley Online Library

Using the Facebook group as a learning management system: An exploratory study - Wang - 2011 - British Journal of Educational Technology - Wiley Online Library | New Media and Web 2.0 Tools for Tutors | Scoop.it

Abstract

Facebook is a popular social networking site. It, like many other new technologies, has potential for teaching and learning because of its unique built-in functions that offer pedagogical, social and technological affordances. In this study, the Facebook group was used as a learning management system (LMS) in two courses for putting up announcements, sharing resources, organizing weekly tutorials and conducting online discussions at a teacher education institute in Singapore. This study explores using the Facebook group as an LMS and the students' perceptions of using it in their courses. Results showed that students were basically satisfied with the affordances of Facebook as the fundamental functions of an LMS could be easily implemented in the Facebook group. However, using the Facebook group as an LMS has certain limitations. It did not support other format files to be uploaded directly, and the discussion was not organized in a threaded structure. Also, the students did not feel safe and comfortable as their privacy might be revealed. Constraints of using the Facebook group as an LMS, implications for practice and limitations of this study are discussed.

A Journalistic View Of Content Curation

A Journalistic View Of Content Curation

If you think of a curator as a collector, then you might see content curation as aggregating links to other people’s posts relevant to your niche. But content curation is way more than that.

According to Michael Gray at wolf-howl.com, content curation:

“At its core, it’s sifting through the mounds of information, separating the good stuff from the bad stuff, and giving it some context.”

In effect, content curation is journalism for bloggers.
