How Long Should Your Content Be? What Works On Blogs, Facebook & More

How Long Should Your Content Be? What Works On Blogs, Facebook & More | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Ideal content length is something with which B2B and B2C marketers across industries constantly struggle. Unfortunately, the most common answer to content-length questions is the often-dreaded, extremely-ambiguous response that is the reply to many of marketing’s toughest questions: “It depends.”

 

And though ideal content length really does hinge on a variety of factors including industry norms and audience engagement, “it depends” isn’t very helpful for marketers looking for actionable advice.

 

However, though there aren’t any hard and fast rules when it comes to content length, there are general guidelines that can be applied when creating content, despite the industry or audience it is intended for.

 

So, how long should your content be? Here are some general content-length guidelines, organized by content type:...

What is innovation? The current relationship between educators and technologies - Innovate My School

What is innovation? The current relationship between educators and technologies - Innovate My School | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Research has shown that teachers are very willing to try out new ideas and use new resources, but that over time they revert to a default mode of teaching and innovations are often discarded. Most of the innovations brought to us through suppliers have failed to change fundamentally teachers’ practice or values.

Nik Peachey's curator insight, May 8, 2014 4:32 AM

Love the final paragraph "To encourage innovation needs more than a set of iPads or a new style of teaching. To return to the initial definition of innovation - “the development of new values”, what is needed is a collaborative platform of new, shared values that place the learner firmly at the centre of the learning process, that embrace all forms of learning, and which will, eventually create a disruptive innovation to really get us all learning."

A framework for interaction and cognitive engagement in connectivist learning contexts | Wang | The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning

A framework for interaction and cognitive engagement in connectivist learning contexts | Wang | The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

The research question that drives this theoretical research is, what are the characteristics and principles of interaction in a complex connectivist learning process? Can they be clearly revealed when viewed from a systematic view focused on interaction? This article provides a systematic interaction framework for connectivist learning, which reveals the characteristics and principles of learners’ interactions so as to guide interaction design and evaluation in connectivist learning designs and implementations.

I would say that very intelligent academics and researchers leave their brains behind when defending what has become a lazy and damaging pedagogy – the face-to-face lecture.

The reasons given here are quite sound, but I don't really agree that the solution is just to record lectures. It'll still be a boring lecture on video.

13 Questions to Ask When Scoping a Learning Development Engagement

13 Questions to Ask When Scoping a Learning Development Engagement | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

All too often, training programs are developed just for training’s sake, just to check the training box. There must be a clear business objective that a training program is attempting to solve. If the business need isn’t there, the program shouldn’t be either.

This is quite corporate business training directed, but would also apply to any teacher training scenario.

Enrico De Angelis's curator insight, May 18, 2014 5:01 AM

Planning courses for a big US corporation around the world is not the same of a residential three years PhD Program.

Nevertheless, the 13 proposed questions make an interesting reference list.

Are they worth to be considered also in our european PhD Programs and their courses? I think so.

 

1. The problem we want to solve is to be clearly stated
2. The quality of the training project too ("success")
3. Who pays for the project (this is more difficult, in Academy)
4. The audience composition
5. Their attitudes and expectations (often disregarded)
6. The actual use of the transferred skills
7. How to track their learning engagement
8. How to cope with tools and practices of the audience
9. Flexibility of the training program

10. Existing content and knowledge to be leveraged
11. Resources to be provide
12. Milestones and dates
13. Budget (cost, time, and quality)

If 80% is informal learning, why focus on inner-MOOC actions? | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

A small 'brain wandering journey' on why I feel MOOC research should look more intensely at informal learning outside of the actual MOOCs (informal learning generated by the dynamics in MOOCs), and overall lifelong learning in an ever changing online learning environment, for a workforce that is becoming older in an knowledge driven era.

Lectures Aren't Just Boring, They're Ineffective, Too, Study Finds | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Are your lectures droning on? Change it up every 10 minutes with more active teaching techniques and more students will succeed, researchers say. A new study finds that undergraduate students in classes with traditional stand-and-deliver lectures are 1.5 times more likely to fail than students in classes that use more stimulating, so-called active learning methods.
