Fun to watch with students...AND it addresses those (including some teachers!) who claim that we don't need to know things that we can just "look up."  As a plus, the video creator talks about some of the hidden references in the video (click on the link at the end).

Google's Schmidt: Teens' mistakes will never go away

Google's Schmidt: Teens' mistakes will never go away | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it
Speaking at a festival in the U.K., Google's executive chairman offers that the things teens do now will stay with them forever, by way of the Web. He also suggested some people are sharing too much online.

 

It must be peculiar for children of the Internet age.

They are the first to have a complete record of their whole lives. They are the first who'll be able to offer concrete proof of every one of their days, friends, and actions.

 

Eric Schmidt worries, however, that they'll be the first who'll never be allowed to forget their mistakes.

Part of our responsibility as teachers is to prepare our learners for their future. Helping them to understand that the Internet has a very long memory is pato of that role.

Lola Ripollés's comment, June 3, 2013 3:53 AM
We must now educate on how to use all these new tools and try to make to make our teens understand that they should give a second thought to what they publish in the web. Difficult? of course! Educating was never an easy job.

How many times have you given your advice to your own children and they have only learnt by their own mistakes. Teaching this will be very difficult but is essential.

Great article - makes clear the difference between differentiation, individualisation and personalisation - and also clearly lays out some ways to gradually lead your students - and your teaching - towards more personalised approaches for your students. Great framework for those keen on potential of PBL/Design Thinking but wanting to know how to get from where they are now to where they want their class/students to be.

How Do You Find The Time For Social Media? - Forbes

How Do You Find The Time For Social Media? - Forbes | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it

How do you find the time for social media? This is the question I get asked probably more than any other.

 

I have four lovely children, a demanding job, a wife with a successful career and more. So how do I find the time to tweet, blog, share, and comment?

 

The answer is simple: I make the time for social media because I think it’s important.

 

I believe that business people in general, and marketers especially, have an obligation to do more than just consume content or share other people’s content, but to become a content creator and to contribute to your work and your life.

I think its fair to stay that at the beginning of your social media journey it can be very time consuming getting to grips with the different platforms and building up followers and looking for decent content to share. You also have to develop your style. That said, with the right tools and mindset your time investment lessens substantially - unless you get hooked!
Martin Gysler's comment, April 19, 2013 7:56 AM
Indeed, at the beginning the most things are difficult and need more time. After it's rather the mind set who dictate the invested time in social media, it's right, I agree with you Gemma. But in my sens the invested time is worth it because it create many very interesting contacts across the world.

Andreas Kuswara's comment, June 11, 2013 9:22 PM
I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's comment, June 11, 2013 9:33 PM
Many people learn one tool and then move on to others. I like to analyze each and use the best features of that particular 2.0 project. I use twitter as a push tool to share info for the most part.
