Using Social Media In The Classroom For Real-World Learning

Using Social Media In The Classroom For Real-World Learning | Nuvo medias | Scoop.it

There is already evidence that teachers are using social media as part of teaching strategies, with the aim of encouraging students to view social networks as less of a pleasurable distraction, and more as something that can be used in projects and for personal expression in a medium they prefer.

The use of social media for learning is essential, particularly in secondary (high schools). Too many teens are engaged with social media, for fast periods of time, with no return on their investment. Schools and their pupil's would benefit from the social media angle.

20 Common Social Media Marketing Myths BUSTED

20 Common Social Media Marketing Myths BUSTED | Nuvo medias | Scoop.it
Read through some commonly held myths about social media marketing to rid yourself of any urban legends.

 

As the former dark horse of the marketing world (I think we're past those days though, right?), social media has had plenty of time to accumulate some big, cuhraaaazy myths. Myths some marketers have held onto because, well, it's just kind of hard to keep up to date on what's really going on with social media.

 

So I donned my walrus mustache and beret (any Mythbusters fans out there?) and drudged up some of the most common social media myths out there ... so I could officially bust them in this blog post. Let's dive in to some social media myths we've all probably heard around the water cooler, and explain why they are now all officially BUSTED!

Follow These 8 Simple Rules of Social Media

Follow These 8 Simple Rules of Social Media | Nuvo medias | Scoop.it
Robin Raskin gives her top tips -- on tattling, relationships and family photo-posting -- about social media etiquette.

 

Is your social media behavior cringe-worthy? Will you look back on your 140 characters today with remorse tomorrow? There’s no one arbiter of good taste on social media. In fact, ‘experts’ have been doling out advice since the Internet came into being. From Ann Landers writing about Internet addiction in 1998 to manners maven Emily Post and her kids and grandkids who are trying to bring good mannered sensibility to the Internet.

 

My credentials aren’t impeccable manners but the school of hard knocks, beginning with a 300 baud modem and a BBS connection. I’m no Internet native, but I have learned a few things about social media manners which I’m happy to share. In fact, let’s make it a group effort, so feel free to chime in below.

 

Googling: Try not to indulge more than you have to; your brain gets rusty from lack of use. Really think about who starred in Mary Poppins before you race to look it up. You’ll be better for it.

 

Tattling: Are you your brother’s social media keeper? The photo with too much cleavage, the beer bottle shot? Limit the pictures you post of other people, especially their past. If someone is posting old pictures of you, the first line of attack should be to talk directly to the offenders about over-sharing. If they de-friend you, you’ve tried. If they tell you “you overshare, too,” they’re probably right.

 

Relationships: Tell your good friends about your breakup before you change your relationship status. They hate feeling like they had to learn it online. And don’t be the first in your relationship to rush to status change — doing it together shows maturity.

 

Posting Family Photos: If they’re old enough to answer in the affirmative, then ask permission before posting. Be especially mindful of bathroom, bikini or paunch shots they’ll loathe you for.

 

Bragging: Vacations, weddings and other shared family photos probably bore your OWN family. Edit judiciously before sharing.

 

Mobile Photography: You’re “in the moment”. They’re not. Make sure the photo is focused and recognizable before hitting the share button.

 

Sympathy: Posting a notice about a death of a friend or relative is alright. The outpouring of support is fantastic. As for offering condolences, it’s fine to memorialize on Facebook — even helpful.

 

Social Media — In General: As they said about after-school activities when I was applying to college: Limit yourself to three — do one really well.

Graig Angarella's curator insight, April 26, 2014 7:19 PM

This article explained how educational institutions are using social media. Some of the points stated, I expected to hear, however other things were very surprising. For starters, about 80% of educational institutions are now using Twitter, and 96% are using Facebook. The main objectives they have in using social media are engaging alumni, improving their brand image, and increasing awareness. One thing that caught my attention was that 68% of institutions have a LinkedIn page. The reason I found this important, was because it just shows that even in high school, social media can be extremely useful in that you could even use it as an opportunity to broadcast yourself to say, the college of your dreams. You could fine-tune your LinkedIn profile and show such institutions more than just what the basic college application might show. Now on the flip side, institutions that use social media can also get a closer look at the real you, so be careful what you post online!

Why digital media planners deserve more respect

Why digital media planners deserve more respect | Nuvo medias | Scoop.it

Media planners are underpaid, undervalued, and overstressed. Maybe if everyone knew about the complexities of this integral position, it would be held in higher esteem.

 

A few years ago, I wrote an article for iMedia Connection called "Burn out in ad operations." The gist of the article was that ad traffickers on the publisher side are the unsung and underappreciated heroes in ad operations. Care and cultivation of the trafficker as a most-valuable-player is vital to a publisher's business -- so show them some love, please.

 

Having now been immersed in both the publisher and agency side of ad operations and digital media over the last few years, I'd like to apply the same sentiments to the role of the digital media planner at the ad agency, who often crosses over into ad ops territory.

 

Here's why they deserve more respect.
