Five Essentials To Create Connected Students (EdSurge News)

Five Essentials To Create Connected Students (EdSurge News) | Social Media | Scoop.it

"But being connected isn’t just for socializing; it’s a life skill. When untrained students get online, they treat academic writing online as if it were social media. They write sloppily and don't think of hyperlinking. If they do, it is often a long pasted link instead of a contextual link. In this connected world, there are invisibly disconnected kids, disconnected from the knowledge they need to be successful."

Bonnie Burns's curator insight, September 30, 2013 12:06 PM

Hummingbird is paying more attention to each word in a query, ensuring that the whole query – the whole sentence or conversation or meaning – is taken into account, rather than particular words. The goal is that pages matching the meaning do better, rather than pages matching just a few words.

13 Ways to Curate Educational Resources From edshelf - TechThought | Social Media | Scoop.it

"There is a lot of educational information on the web that you can use in your lessons. A LOT. Videos, images, articles, documents, diagrams, games, exercises, oh my.

 

However, quality can vary significantly. There are many lumps of coals out there. So every time you come across a high-quality gem, give yourself a high-five! Then take note of it somewhere.

 

As your collection of gems grows, you may have colleagues who will find your curated resources very helpful. You may even find their curated resources helpful as well."

How Fortune 500 companies use Instagram to build their brands | Social Media | Scoop.it

Is your company on Instagram yet? If so, it joins the 123 Fortune 500s that have added Instagram to their marketing arsenal.

Brands like Nike, Starbucks, Ralph Lauren, Whole Foods and more are all top players in the Instagram big brand space.

 

TrackMaven, a competitive analysis firm, has released a study that exposes how these Fortune 500s are using Instagram, and gives tips on how you can use Instagram like a boss, too.

 

Having an Instagram account is one thing, but actually using it is another. TrackMaven explored the percentage of active accounts versus inactive accounts of Fortune 500s and found that of the 123 using Instagram, about 22% had active accounts.

Irene Laulu's curator insight, October 1, 2014 11:59 PM

Instagram is the most popular app that people are using it right now and it says in the article that most people use instagram to build their brands. Instagram still appears to challenge many companies. Some brands, like American Express and Burberry, excel on the all-picture site, while other companies fail because they treat the platform like an online catalogue for showcasing their products. However most companies use Facebook and twitter to build their brand which is good but I think Instagram is good for companies to promote and advertise their brands because many customers are using it as well.

The Future of Education: BYOD in the Classroom | Innovation Insights | Wired.com

The Future of Education: BYOD in the Classroom | Innovation Insights | Wired.com | Social Media | Scoop.it

"As children across the nation return to school, many are going armed with their own computational tools. From laptops to tablets and smartphones, schools and universities across the globe are testing out a more dynamic learning environment, where students bring and use their choice of technologically assistive devices in the classroom. Despite the obvious benefits, the influx of mobile technology in educational systems has also provoked backlash from parents and teachers alike, similar to the BYOD backlash witnessed within enterprise IT departments in the past few years.

 

Educational institutions are ultimately presented two options: adopt a BYOD program, embracing the technology trend, encouraging student participation, and expanding curriculum to include BYOD-driven topics, or to impose of a BYOD policy, setting rules to govern the presence and practice of these potentially disruptive devices."

Interesting that some Silicon Valley inventors of Apple I-pad  choose to send their children to Waldorf Schools that do not embrace computers. Why? The outcomes of hours spent in front of computer screens for developing brains has not been identified clearly in terms of long term effects. I believe that a good teacher who empowers her students to learn can do so without technology, I am speaking here of elementary schools where most students are gaining literacy that can be applied in any medium a little later. Let's restrict their use in kindergartens and primary schools to be on the safe side.

How Social Media Content Tools Can Work for Your Sharing Strategy

How Social Media Content Tools Can Work for Your Sharing Strategy | Social Media | Scoop.it

There are two types of social network — sharing tools and content tools. Find out how social media content tools can complement your sharing strategy. Use these tips to get in the game...

 

...Who doesn’t immediately share their Vine videos to Twitter and/or Facebook? Relying on Vine alone to get your six-second video to the masses would completely miss the point of why Vine was created in the first place. Vine is meant to create content for those other networks.Vine, Instagram, and others are smartphone apps first and social networks second.

 

And that changes how we should approach them from a social media content strategy standpoint. By all means, create away using these tools, but do so with these recommendations in mind...
