What Results Should You Expect From Twitter?

What Results Should You Expect From Twitter? | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Twitter is a great way to build and engage an audience with short, timely, relevant messages, but if you’re trying to drive traffic to your website, what results should you expect in terms of click-through rates?

Check out this Infographic by Joanna Franchetti from Sign-Up, who analysed tens of thousands of tweets sent through Sign-Up’s Twitter marketing tools in the first seven months of 2012 to find out the answer.

Looking at average click through rates (CTR) from tweets and how this varied by the number of followers, day of the week and time of tweet.

They found that the average click through rate for a tweet is 1.64% (just over half the rate of email, which averages 2.95%), and that this declines rapidly as your number of followers increases. They also found that clicks tend to increase later in the day, peaking at around 6pm.

3 Different Things You Can Do With Google Classroom - Edudemic

3 Different Things You Can Do With Google Classroom - Edudemic | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

by Nikolaos Chatzopoulos


"Google’s advance in the education field has brought to schools around the globe affordable devices and effortless access to educational content. Google’s latest solution for learning is called Google Classroom. Although Google Classroom will be available at the beginning of the school year to all schools that have adopted Google Apps for Education, the Mountain View based company granted access to Google Classroom to a select few individuals in July. I was fortunate enough to be one of these early adopters/testers of Google Classroom, and I can honestly say that I am impressed by its simplicity, and its ability to seamlessly integrate Google Docs, Sheets,Drive, Gmail, and more in order to provide a wonderful and highly productive user experience."

More badges and professional development ideas

More badges and professional development ideas | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

This semester, the CETL is revising it’s system of badges to better acknowledge, challenge, and reward faculty and staff who engage in professional development activities. We’ve developed some new badges, introduced badge levels, and tweaked the way badges are earned. We’ve also expanded the way participants can publicly display their badges.

 

A list of all the badges can be found here. Most of these badges now have three levels. The initial level (which we’re calling the “learn stuff” level) is earned simply by participating in professional development activies. These can be CETL workshops, individual consultations with CETL staff, or even opportunities from other sources, like a conference or webinar. Those who wish to progress to the second level of a badge (the “do stuff” level) will work with the CETL to construct an appropriate challenge card. These cards will simply be things the participant can do to apply why they learned at the “learn stuff” level. Participants can move on to the third level (“evaluate/share stuff”) by constructing and completing another challenge. This one will focus on evaluating the application of the new knowledge and sharing how it worked with others. Participants can share through the CETL blog and website, social media, or more formal research and publication avenues.

 

Pedagogy Map

To help folks get started, we’ve created the Pedagogy Map. This is a wonderful visual representation of the new badges and how they are related. Participants can earn any badge they want whenever they want, but they can also create their own Learning Path. Particpants can sit down with the CETL staff to determine which path best fits their professional development goals. Each Path will be individualized, including challenges developed by the participant and the CETL, and self-paced. The CETL developed Pedagogy Map and new badges can help faculty and staff determine which paths would be best for them, however the CETL will develop and issue badges that are personalized to other requests for professional development. The Pedagogy Map can be viewed below. If you want to see the new badges associated and featured in it you may click http://www.txwescetl.com/pedagogy-map/

Love this infographic - walks students (Grade 5 +) through the use of Google search strategies. I've put this up in the classroom so that I can refer to it. With primary school kids, its not really a 'work alone' resource but it is great for using as a reference point to direct their research and search skills.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 26, 11:30 PM

A great infographic to remind kids on how to find precisely what they are looking for. Remember, Google is not a person - do not ask it questions! Instead, use precise keywords and get familiar with the Advanced tools.

In UDL learners are allowed to express their learning in a variety of ways.
