But Does this all work?


Here is a video created  by my students who practice what I preach (almost) every day. They created this video and  Facebook page to answer a real-life recruitment & retainment challenge.

My students at Hannam University's Linton Global College use media and video to improve their writing skills, teamwork skills, critical thinking skills, international advertising skills, and project management skills.  They also have fun learning while working hard.

 

Communication is much more than just language skills. It is about designing a message for a target audience and 'call to action' in mind. 

 

Special thanks to Cati, Kyla, Min, & Lelah for their extra work on this project!  Additional (Equal) thanks to the LGC Social Media team of Sang, Jody, Kim, Denis, Kate & Veronica!

Social Media Over The Past Decade | HubSpot | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

...To think of what “might be” a few years from now is barely fathomable but really exciting! I remember listening to the keynote speaker at the 1990 Seybold Conference talk about how books in the future would be enjoyed on electronic readers, and thinking, “not in my lifetime would electronic readers replace printed books.” We all know how that turned out.


Let’s go back and hit the high points from the past ten years. Below is a visual infographic timeline followed by a more detailed look at each year! Pay close attention to the ones that were launched in 2012; some of them have a lot of potential to be game changers!

6 trends that will accelerate the adoption of technology in higher education | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
We take a look at the six “key trends” picked out in the NMC Horizon Report: 2014 Higher Education Edition

 

The NMC Horizon Report: 2014 Higher Education Edition, officially launched on 3 February 2014, aims to examine emerging technologies for their potential impact on and use in teaching and learning within higher education settings.

It is the 11th annual higher education report of its kind, and is published by the New Media Consortium, a not-for-profit consortium of more than 250 colleges, universities, museums and companies that conducts research into emerging forms of media and technology.

The report, produced in partnership with the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative, picks out six “key trends” that are accelerating the adoption of technology in higher education.

The Best Features of Facebook Messenger You're Probably Not Using

The Best Features of Facebook Messenger You're Probably Not Using | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Facebook took a lot of flak for making its standalone Messenger app mandatory. Many feel (myself among them) that a standalone app for messages is unnecessary. Even so, that doesn't make it a bad app, or not useful in its own way. Here are some of the best features of Facebook Messenger that make it worth using.
Ken Morrison's insight:

I am trying to keep an open mind about this disruptive scale-down of Facebook.  I personal feeling is that if Facebook is the 2nd biggest app on my phone, there is no reason that it can't use some of the space that I allocate for it to include messages.

I actually made a website shortcut on my home screen of my iPhone so that I can bypass the app.  That is my short-term way of revolting. I basically don't like how Facebook is simply changing the gate structure and forcing the sheep to go to a new pen to get fed.

Should you get Amazon's new e-book subscription service?

Should you get Amazon's new e-book subscription service? | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Here's how Kindle Unlimited compares with other "Netflix for books" services
Ken Morrison's insight:

Things just got interesting as Amazon releases "Kindle Unlimitted" service. You can borrow 10 books at a time from their library of 600,00 for $10 a month.

 

Other options include Oyster and Scribd at similar monthly prices.

Ken's Key Takeaway:
The contracts with publishers is what will determine your satisfaction.  For example, I wish Amazon had a contract with Penguin Publishing. Those books will not be included in this service.  Each service offers a 30-day trial so choose wisely.

Twitter Founder Comes Home to Nebraska | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
My play-by-play of the Nebraska native and Blogger, Twitter and Medium leader:

Evan Williams thinks the name "Big Omaha" is a little redundant.

That's because Omaha is synonymous with big, from his childhood point of view, he said.

Clarks, his hometown was only 379 when he lived there in the 70s and 80s. Clarks is 100 miles west of Omaha and "one of the towns every ten miles on Highway 30."

ChinaJoy is a trade show like no other, drawing 250,000 people to Shanghai.

Ken's Key Takeaway (from text):
"Westerners can’t ignore the culture of ChinaJoy because it may one day be the culture of the dominant country in video games. China’s PC online game business is expected to be $14 billion in 2014, and the mobile game sector is expected to increase 93 percent to $2.9 billion in revenues this year, according to market researcher Niko Partners."
