Me as an infographic! Christina's Bio Illustrates It. | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

To illustrate the previous full video on teaching, learning and doing research via social media in a university setting, here is an Infographic on Christina Costa.


The website also links to her PhD thesis:  

The participatory web in the context of academic research : landscapes of change and conflicts


  • I just developed an infographic on my experience using easel.ly
  • It doesn’t look as great as I’d like – need to improve my design skills!! – but this was pretty easy to create.

  • A great way to illustrate one’s experience.  (by Christina Costa.)

I'd be remiss if I didn't also Scoop this to my Social Media curation stream at the SMLL - social media at the university, with the video lecturers bio illustrated via this infographic tool.  ~  Deb

Finally, Easy Stuff for WordPress: 6 Reasons to Install AND USE the WordPress Jetpack Plugin

Finally, Easy Stuff for WordPress:  6 Reasons to Install AND USE the WordPress Jetpack Plugin | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

"This review of Jetpack got me over my doldrums and disaffected non-blogging status with my WordPress website.  It's a very handy and FREE set of tools!"


I've implemented the social media integration already via my self-hosted Wordpress site: REVELN.com.   This social media share plug-in element IN PARTICULAR is EASY.  Finally, Wordpress!   

Glossy, media rich platforms that don't so much need the heavy lifting of html like Posterous and Tumblr still dazzle, but at least WP is catching up with this fantastic plugin pack with it's very own navigation menu.

Why, I might even mini-blog this and pin it on one of my 45 Pinterest boards.  Heh, and you might think I'm kidding.


Below is the #1 reason from the Jetpack review on why Wordpress users will want to take a look at this cool plugin pack.  


Excerpted:


1. Easy to Install, Setup, and Learn

Jetpack could not be easier to install and set up, considering how many different benefits it provides.


To install it, just go to Plugins –> Add New and then type “jetpack” into the search box. It’ll be the first result.


Hit “Install Now” and you’re ready to go (unless you need to create a WordPress.com account, which is necessary so you can link it with your blog and Jetpack).


Once you’ve got the plugin activated, it will create its own dashboard nav bar menu section right at the top.


If you want to see the social media I now am using, thanks to JetPack, which made it EASY, go to THIS blog post, "Open Space on Speed: Social Business with the Coaches, Results! Video"  and scroll down to the bottom.  


  • Note the social media icons and ease with which you can comment and share!  (And DO feel free to share with comments! :-)


===


Enjoy.  There's something there for just about everyone, it seems.

Why McKinsey Says Social Media Could Add $1.3 Trillion to the Economy

Why McKinsey Says Social Media Could Add $1.3 Trillion to the Economy | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

"It's a natural progression of a truly ubiquitous business process. Social media started as a fad, then became a trend, and is now becoming fully integrated in the fabric of how we do business."


Welcome news to the jobs-starved economy. 


Excerpts:


The study states that, "two-thirds of this potential value lies in improving collaboration and communication within and across enterprises."   Microsoft's acquisition of Yammer and Salesforce.com's purchase of Radian6 are evidence, as well as designated new internal productivity tools that will integrate into current business processes.


Think of the jobs-creation these new tools might influence.


Educate both the workforce and leaders on what social media is and how to access its power.


Retool to welcome the millennial workforce who takes access to social technologies as a given.


The study also states:


  • very few [companies] are anywhere near to achieving the full potential benefit of social media.

  • the most powerful applications of social technologies in the global economy are largely untapped

Top 5 Apple BlockBusters and Reasons iPad Rules the Tablets in 2013

Top 5 Apple BlockBusters and Reasons iPad Rules the Tablets in 2013 | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

If there's one thing that Apple has been getting right, it is their ability to create beautiful, easy-to-use blockbusters.


To build a great business, it's all about creating a great product that people love for how it improves their lives.


There’s much more to love about Apple than there is to hate,” says Cam Bunton, a technology blogger who confirms my own experiences of Apple’s top five products:


1. The iPhone  


2. The App Store   Who knew that an on-line app store launched by Apple in 2008 would be it.  Now I regularly update my apps, deleting some I don’t use, moving up the keepers to the front pages on my iPhone and iPad.  Cam says,“There are now over half a million apps, and the variety and quality is unmatchable.”   If there’s an app you want, it’s likely you’d be downloading it from Apple’s app store. 


3. The iPad   The 2013 statistics on the iPad, and my own analytics via Google,  blew me away!


4. The MacBook Air  ...without being a world traveler.  The Air is a full function, heavy duty computing machine with the heft of the classic Apple brushed steel cover, full keyboard and the great display of the MacBook Pro.  


5. The ever improving Apple iOS   ... the current iOS ...is magnificent.  The seamless sync of my calendar, email, social media with my Google Apps works great.

This is one of my own tech blog posts.  Blockbuster products, like the iPod when it hit the streets, really got the world's attention.  ~  Deb

3 Crucial Elements to Turn Social into Business: Open Space with the Coaches, Results! Video « Reveln Consulting

3 Crucial Elements to Turn Social into Business: Open Space with the Coaches, Results! Video « Reveln Consulting | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

It's time that I get more intentional about driving traffic to my website using social media the right way.  Somebody said this. Oh, it was you, Deb.


Said in so many words, it's clear that professionals, these days, are just about ALL participanting in social media.   This group of professional coaches, for example, on our informal tally, are there, except for one.   They are also very interested in how to become better business people in using social media appropriately.


This blog post, my own, this time, provides the proceedings from the workshop, "Social Business for Connection, Livelihood and Fun."  


I've just updated the original handout to a new one that is download-friendly.  It features our simple strategy for Social Business:



Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Insights & Tips On Curation, Social Media For Non-Profits, Video | Beth Kanter Interviews Robin Good

This is a great Scoop for my Social, Peer Learning & Curation stream, along with the Social Media Learning Lab stream, just after I put together a video for LA2M on this very topic mentioning BOTH Beth & Robin.

 

Here you go, from two great blogger/authors.  (My video post will follow next.) ~ Deb

 

Beth Kanter interviewed Robin Good a few days ago.

 

Beth:  Robin, I really enjoyed listening to you, I know this is aimed at non-profits but your insights, tips and suggestions are something we can all use. 

 

Key points:

  • BEFORE you get on the web, decide how much time you're going to spend on there, otherwise it could become addictive, and this can happen if you're not careful (hmmm how many of you can relate to this?)  
  • Know who your audience is, pick a very specific topic
  • Be as narrow as you can, find great pieces, pull out what you think would be relevant for them. (Being too broad doesn't help filter out the noise for these people, it adds to it) 

Hear Beth's interview with Robin here: [http://bit.ly/zmRMc7]

Jan - thanks for scooping this. I learned a lot from this interview. I also transcribed it and have included what I think of some of Robin's "classic" curation resources!
janlgordon's comment, January 28, 2012 12:01 AM
Beth,
I revised this post and put the link to the entire interview in it. Really great stuff, Robin is so amazing, good work!
