Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, January 12, 9:38 AM

Why share this here? Well, K-20 educators are preparing their kids for their working lives. The more educators think about what is and could be important for kids to know and be able to do, the better they can design lessons, activities, tasks, and projects that help students develop and refine the appropriate knowledge, skills, and dispositions.

Here's what happens in one minute on the internet in China

Here's what happens in one minute on the internet in China | ssAcademic | Scoop.it

There are nearly 700 million internet users in China, and they don’t let their connections go to waste. The country is a downloading, WeChatting, ecommercing powerhouse, and it has the statistics to prove it.

 

We sorted through the numbers put out by some of China’s biggest internet companies, and brought them down to scale. This is an internet minute in China. The country does in 60 seconds what some would only do over a day, week, or more. Not too shabby....

Richard Platt's curator insight, November 11, 2015 8:19 PM

People concerned about how much information is out there about them on Google have a new way to control what everyone can see.

Without any fanfare, Google has begun rolling out an About Me page to make it easier for people to control what others can see about them across Google services.  The page should be welcome news to people concerned about their privacy, according to Zeus Kerravala, an analyst with ZK Research.  "With this feature, there are no changes to what information people can see, but a way for people to better control what people can see about them across Google services in one place,"Google spokesperson wrote in an email to  Computerworld.   Google, with its myriad services like Gmail, search, YouTube and productivity apps, has been collecting a lot of information about its users.  The About Me page, which is tailored for each user, contains information like work history, contact information, educational background and places the user has lived, along with gender and birthday.

7 Tools for Building an Infographic in an Afternoon (Design Skills or Not)

7 Tools for Building an Infographic in an Afternoon (Design Skills or Not) | ssAcademic | Scoop.it

Infographics are such a fun and effective visual way to display information. We at Buffer have certainly used them quite a few times to share information.

 

There are so many tools being released every day allowing us to easily create better and better images— including infographics—to share and use in our marketing efforts.

 

Even folks (like me!) who never thought it possible to create one ourselves!I had a lot of fun researching and testing out a handful of different infographic makers, and I’d love to share the seven tools I liked best to easily create beautiful infographics....

Global Perspectives on Youth and Digital Media

Global Perspectives on Youth and Digital Media | ssAcademic | Scoop.it

The contributions in this book reflect the diversity of ideas and perspectives that form the core and spirit of Digitally Connected. Some of the reflection pieces are closely connected to issues discussed at the symposium, others reflect more generally on personal observations and/or opinions, or highlight and discuss insights and learnings from specific studies or concrete projects. By making these reflection pieces and the youth work available to the expanding Digitally Connected network as well as the public at large, we hope to continue and further stimulate the global conversation about both the challenges and opportunities children and youth encounter in the digital environment.

So much information and so little time!  This infographic and webpage provide clear guidance that teachers can use to help their students be more selective about the sources they choose to use.  

ICTE Solutions Australia's curator insight, December 28, 2015 11:43 PM

In an ICT integrated society, it is important that people are information literate. That means being able to search for and analyse information for their benefits. As websites on the Internet become more popular teachers need to teach their students the right skills and knowledge so that their students are able to become information literate. Any guide therefore, that will assist teachers in doing so is worth using as a resource as reference for both teachers and students to use.
