People are still more scared of being mugged on the way home or fear that a burglar will break into their home while they are sleeping. This..THIS..right here is where the terror should be felt. The odds of this happening are much greater and people need to take the blinders off.

Should You Use Vine For Your Small Business? These 6 Qs Will Help You Decide - Spokal

What’s Vine?

It’s Twitters new social network that makes it easy to create and share social videos on the go.

 

Twitter is obsessed with limitations (because they breed creativity), so just like we only have 140 characters in a tweet, we only have 6 seconds to shoot a Vine.

 

Vine was released on February 4, 2013 and within 7 days of launching, over 100,000 Vines had been shared. Which makes you think…

Sharla Shults's insight:

Just think, if a picture is worth 1,000 words, how much is 6 seconds of video worth? If you do the math, there’s an average of 24 frames a second. Multiply that by 6 seconds and we get 144 frames. That’s the equivalent to 144,000 words!

The Benefits of Educational Blogging | Primary Tech

The Benefits of Educational Blogging | Primary Tech | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

This in an update of older posts about the benefits of educational blogging.

 

2013 is the sixth year that I have maintained a classroom blog. When I first began I didn’t know much about blogging at all and I didn’t realise there could be educational benefits to running a blogging program.

 

I thought having a class blog would be a bit of fun and a good way to connect with parents.

 

As time has gone on I’ve come to realise that blogging brings many educational benefits. Years later I am still discovering new advantages for my students.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Examine the diagram on the website and watch the videos where students highlight some of the advantages of having a class blog.

Clam Cleanup -- Biologists Clam Up Waterways To Determine Sources Of Pollution

Clam Cleanup -- Biologists Clam Up Waterways To Determine Sources Of Pollution | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

"Biologists are able to determine the sources of toxins in water by using clams as pollutant traps. Clams naturally clean water by feeding absorbing toxins in their tissues as they draw in water. By placing the clams downstream of industrial parks and highways, they can be analyzed for pollutants. Biologists open the clams after exposure to these waters and detach them from their shells-- various lab tests reveal contaminants in the waterway."

Sharla Shults's insight:

VIDEO: Biologists teaming up with local high school students dredge up clams to use as detectives to help find the source of toxin leaks. Just another great innovative idea in education!
