UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Reading in the mobile era

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Reading in the mobile era | Sociale medier i undervisningen | Scoop.it

UNESCO is currently investigating how access to text can be improved through the use of technology, specifically basic mobile phones. Today mobile phones are common in areas where books are scarce. The United Nations estimates that 6 billion people have access to a connected mobile device of some sort, while only 4.5 billion have access to a toilet.

18 Apps That Will Inspire Creativity In Your Everyday Life - Huffington Post

18 Apps That Will Inspire Creativity In Your Everyday Life - Huffington Post | Sociale medier i undervisningen | Scoop.it
Mobile devices like iPads and Androids have transformed the way we experience boredom. No longer is a wayward commuter forced to play Snake or Tetris, occupying themselves in a hardly satisfying, and utterly pixelated virtual reality. The tablet or smart phone-wielding travelers can now immerse themselves in an entire library of art and culture-related distractions, finding solace in everything from a Vincent van Gogh game to a digital version of the Louvre.

Just this week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a 140-year-old cultural stalwart of New York City, went the way of the future and introduced an iPhone app. Described as "exceedingly simple and modest" by Forbes, the move to make art more accessible is something we can't help but love. So, in the spirit of the Met's 21st century attitude, we've put together a list of mobile museums and art-honoring programs that will spark creativity in your everyday life.

Behold, 18 apps every creative and artist type should download now:

Google Is Testing New Service That Lets Chrome Users Save, Share And Organize Web Content: Google Stars

Google Is Testing New Service That Lets Chrome Users Save, Share And Organize Web Content: Google Stars | Sociale medier i undervisningen | Scoop.it

Excerpt from the article by The Next Web:
"Google is testing a new favoriting service for its Chrome browser. Called Google Stars, the new option appears to still in very early testing.
The new addition was first discovered by Google+ user Florian Kiersch. He found the following strings in “the source code of the Google Collections modules in web search”.

Here are some of the strings that reveal a bit about the feature:
- Use the star in the address bar to save anything across the web.
- Search the entire page content with suggestions and auto complete.
- Discover new dimensions in your content through the automatically created filters.
- Browse and find your stars in a beautiful image rich grid. Add notes and make it yours.
- Select, and edit items to organize your starred content by clicking on them or dragging and dropping.
- Organize your starred items into groups, by typing a name for a new group here.

It does tell us this is a Chrome-specific feature.
In short, Google Stars supports favoriting (called starring) URLs, lets you add a title and a note, includes folders, and sharing functionality (both public and private). How much of all this will remain in the final release, is not clear.
The real interesting aspect here is that Stars appears to be a cloud service that allows for sharing..."

Social Media and the Value of Controlling the Conversation

Social Media and the Value of Controlling the Conversation | Sociale medier i undervisningen | Scoop.it
Social media marketing must be justified. Can we measure the value of social media and the conversation it promises?

janlgordon's curator insight, April 30, 2014 3:59 PM

I selected this article by Andrew Osegi for Kunocreativ because it addresses a topic that  every social media marketer should be concerned about.


He asks a very important question:


"How do we give value to the fleeting micro engagements that make up social media interaction?"


Some insights to get you thinking and leveraging your messages and conversations online.


Here are a few highlights:


As the web grows, so too will the number of users invested in social media networking. In order for anyone (brand or individual) to reap the benefits of social, businesses must establish a reputable (i.e. searchable) presence in their niche or industry. This takes A) time and B) money.


Your social strategy must reflect, and adhere to, the measurable data produced when posting. This data will direct how you conduct future social media campaigns - where ROI really matters. More on that in this article.


He refers to social capital - In an article by Rig Dragon, social capital is difficult to predict and measure, but most definitely applicable in social media. Social media, like advertising, creates unseen impressions too important to ignore. - Good insights here!

 

Takeaway:


Think of your social media efforts as a transaction of energy. Reciprocal conversation, online or in person, is rewarding to all parties involved.

10 ways Google Classroom will make learning better | Ditch That Textbook

10 ways Google Classroom will make learning better | Ditch That Textbook | Sociale medier i undervisningen | Scoop.it

I became a fan of Google Reader, which collected blog posts and other publications to RSS in one easy-to-access place. Then Google discarded this service — one that had a very loyal user base. Google has a history of doing this to features that don’t meet its needs anymore. If I’m making the switch to Classroom, I’d like to know that Google has committed to it.

From face-to-face teaching to online teaching: pedagogical transitions - USQ ePrints

From face-to-face teaching to online teaching: pedagogical transitions - USQ ePrints | Sociale medier i undervisningen | Scoop.it

This paper will share the experiences of two instructors as they moved from teaching in a face-to-face environment to blended teaching and then to online teaching. It will describe the four year journey and shed light on the issues, perspectives and practices as the instructors reflected on the changes to their pedagogical practice and the resulting online student engagement. Data included three 1-hour interviews and an analysis of online discussion postings. The instructors reflected on their values, beliefs and assumptions about teaching and learning. As higher education has embraced online education as a way to reduce costs, increase flexibility, and enhance access to students it is important to gain an understanding of the perceptions of instructors moving into online teaching. This study found a change in the beliefs and teaching presence of the instructors from their initial resistance to online teaching to an approach which is mindful of the student experience and promotes a dialogical approach to online learning.
