AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, March 10, 2013 9:05 AM

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

The Role of Pinterest Inside & Outside The Classroom [Infographics] | Online tips & social media nieuws | Scoop.it

Pinterest wordt en kan heel goed worden gebruikt in het onderwijs om ideeën te organiseren en te delen. 

 

With over 10 million users, Pinterest has rocketed to pop-culture fame since its launch in beta in March 2010. This rapid growth makes it the fastest growing social media site of the past year. Educators have caught on to Pinterest in a big way. From kindergarten to college, teachers, professors and students are using Pinterest creatively to organize and share ideas from all around the Web and even in their own classrooms and campuses.

This tool makes video more acessible for EAL learners. Of course, we could create captions with the tools in  Youtube.

Make Your Podcast Sticky [Infographic]

Make Your Podcast Sticky [Infographic] | Online tips & social media nieuws | Scoop.it

There are six principles of sticky ideas according to Dan and Chip Heath, authors of Made to Stick. Sticky ideas are ones that we can plainly understand, clearly remember, and easily retell. When teachers and students make educational podcasts, whether audio or video, we want them to be sticky.

 

I created the infographic below that that applies the principles outlined in Made To Stick to podcasting for teaching and learning. You can click the image for a PDF version of the infographic.

 

Thanks to http://donnamurdoch.net/make-your-podcast-stickyinfographic  for this link.
