A Good Visual Timeline On The History of Hashtag ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Good Visual Timeline On The History of Hashtag ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it
This little digital creature called Hashtag has been revolutionizing the way people network, communicate and share on social media websites. It first started on Twitter around the year 2009 then Google Plus adopted it in 2012 before Facebook officially integrated it in June 2013. However, what is mysteriously unknown about this #poundsign is that its origin dates back to the 12th century when the #symbol first appeared in the musical realm. Since then, hashtags have been used in different contexts and for different purposes till they finally landed in the social media landscape some few years ago. The visual below provides a very good visual illustration of the chronological development of the sign #hashtag.

3 Ways Social Media Can Improve School Culture - The Principal of Change

3 Ways Social Media Can Improve School Culture - The Principal of Change | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it
I was having a great conversation the other day with a good friend, and she was sharing how many boards aren’t really worried about “social media” because they are needing to actually focus on improving their culture first.  I thought a lot about what she said, and to be honest, if you cannot have conversations with people in your own organization, Twitter is going to be the last thing in your mind.  That being said, I have seen a lot of school organizations use social media to actually improve their culture significantly.  It is not the only way, but if used in powerful ways, it definitely can have an overall impact on your school or district.

7 Social Media Strategies Every Teacher Needs to Learn Today and Teach Tomorrow - Brilliant or Insane | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it
In a world ruled by content curation, every educator should be passing along social media strategies to students. The “That’s a parent’s job” mantra is not a sufficient excuse for ignoring your responsibility here. We’re in this together.

Students must be taught early and often how to create, locate, maintain and share content. And they need to understand the ramifications of everything they do on social media.

This is a chart featuring what its author called 21 things every 21st century teacher should do this year. This chart is created by Sean Junkins based on a blog post by Carl Hooker. I went through the ideas suggested here and thought of providing you with some good web tools to apply to some of these ideas. The tools I am sharing are based on posts I have published in this blog.

Nurses and Technology: 4 Tips for Effective Use of Social Media - Nurturing Your Nursing Career

Nurses and Technology: 4 Tips for Effective Use of Social Media - Nurturing Your Nursing Career | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it

Let's face it: social media has pervaded our world, and it can't be ignored. Some people see social media as a trivial waste of time, but it can be an important communication tool if used effectively. In the healthcare world, nurses can use social media to connect with other nurses, to learn more about various patient illnesses and what it's like to live with those illnesses, to engage in meaningful healthcare conversations, and to discuss trends in healthcare.

 

An article published in the February 2014 issue of Johnson & Johnson'sNursing Notes lists several tips for nurses to follow as they share knowledge and engage in meaningful healthcare conversations via social media. The top four tips are as follows:

Keep it professional. Nurses should maintain a professional persona and tone when engaging in social media communication related to their nursing careers. This includes refraining from dispensing any specific or personal medical advice or nursing diagnoses.
 Consider everything to be public. It's important for nurses to keep in mind the public nature of all social media sites. Even when conversing on a private forum, nurses should assume that anything they post can be seen by anyone. Thus, just like in face-to-face conversations, nurses must abide by rules and policies related to patient confidentiality and privacy.
 Listen. As mentioned previously, social media sites allow nurses to engage in meaningful conversations related to healthcare issues and trends. However, nurses should be sure to fully observe and understand all discussions before adding to them. Nurses should not broadcast unwarranted medical thoughts and opinions just because they can.
 Speak up! When used effectively, social media can help nurses position themselves as meaningful leaders and advocates in the healthcare industry. The nursing voice is an important part of any healthcare conversation, and it can have a powerful impact when inserted appropriately.

For additional information on the use of social media as it relates to nursing, take a look at the American Nurses Association's Social Networking Principles Toolkit. To engage in conversations related to nursing education, visit The College Network'sFacebook and Twitter pages. Also, stay tuned for part two of this "Nurses and Technology" series to learn about the use of other new technology in the healthcare setting.
