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.

I believe in the 70:20:10 framework

I believe in the 70:20:10 framework | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Charles Jennings promotes a 70:20:10 framework for organizational learning, where on-the-job experiential/informal learning and social learning represent the preponderance of each employee’s overall learning. Only 10% is from formal learning activities.


The reason this framework works is that it more or less reflects what’s actually true for employees in the typical workplace. Formal education has its place in preparing people for the workplace. Once those people become employees, they have a job to get done. People aren’t hired to learn, they’re hired to increase productivity or capability. There are productivity expectations and organizational needs to be met.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 20, 7:15 PM

School is a challenging place to learn to be a teacher. We are often isolated and it is difficult to learn informally.

 

The concept is great and it takes effort to put it in place.

Edit Photos Just Like In Photoshop: You CAN Do That On A Chromebook! ~ makeuseof | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

by Daniel Price


"Chromebooks are fantastic machines. As the quality of the apps in the Chrome Web Store improves they’re becoming increasingly capable of doing everything that your primary PC or Mac can do, but for a fraction of the cost. Their security, ease of use, and portability is rapidly making them a popular choice for schools, businesses, and university students – all of whom are taking note of their advantages.


"In the previous piece in this series we looked at how, contrary to some people’s opinions, Chromebooks can play Google Play movies and television shows when offline. The latest installment in our mini-series looks at the wide choice of high quality photo editors that are available to all Chrome users."

Tony Bates: Resources on e-portfolios

Tony Bates: Resources on e-portfolios | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Tony Bates:


"In education, a ‘portfolio’ refers to a personal collection of information describing, documenting and recording a person’s achievements and learning. Portfolios are used for many different purposes such as a tool for evaluating leaning, for accreditation of prior experience, for continuing professional development, to assist a job application, or for a certification of competences acquired through a course or from work experience . An educational portfolio is mainly used to encourage personal reflection and involves the exchange of ideas and feedback. Many people have already used some kind of portfolio. Most of them have built a portfolio to collect evidence required to get certificates or to show what they have learned in a concrete situation or training. The development of information and learning technologies has led to the development of digital portfolios or electronic portfolios, commonly referred as e-Portfolios."
