SteveB's Social Learning Scoop

Wecome to my Social Learning Scoop.

 

It contains a generic mix of articles, gathered through twitter, the blogs I follow and suggestions from the Scoop.it curation tool, that catch my attention as interesting to me and possibly other people.

 

You can use the filter option just above this introduction to search for a particular topic within the numerous articles collated here.

Robin Good's curator insight, July 29, 6:30 AM



HackDesign is a great example of content curation at work. The team of design curators behind this site, targeted at people interested in digital/web design, has curated the very best articles into a series of lessons and the top tools into a well-categorized toolkit.


Each lesson is per se a collection of annotated pointers to existing quality articles on the topic, and the tools are individually reviewed and organized across different application areas.


The official intro: "We've asked some of the world's best designers to help us curate the best and most useful blogs, books, games, videos, and tutorials that helped them learn critical elements of design. We're organizing them all into a digestible and iterative lesson plan so you can apply this knowledge to your own projects."


A model for anyone interested in creating a learning hub on any topic by curating the best content already available online.


Must-see. 9/10


Free to use.

I consider myself to be an "experienced" educator -- that means I've spent many years in the classroom and I'm "old."  But I've never stopped trying to learn more and to be reflective about what I am doing so that I can improve how I help students learn.  

The five ingredients listed in this blog post are fairly "spot on" in my opinion and my experience.  I would have enjoyed a post like this when I first started my teaching career.  I'm not sure if I would have fully understood all of this initially -- but it would have made it much easier to learn this in the trenches.  

Share this with all of your teaching colleagues -- "experienced" and "new" to the profession... 

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, July 27, 4:53 PM

So many webinars do NOT follow this handy SPLAT acronym.  Q & A, by "raising your hand" is not the same as "talking is learning."  We have a long ways to go to enable full conversation in webinars.  The current stay is still MUCH more lecture based.  ~  Deb

How Do I Successfully Run SEO Tests On My Website?

How Do I Successfully Run SEO Tests On My Website? | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Rand Fishkin is going to talk about running some SEO tests.

 

So it is the case that many of us in the SEO world, and in the web marketing world overall, love to run tests on our websites. Of course, there's great software, like Unbounce or Optimizely, if you want to run conversion-style tests, tests that kind of determine whether users perform better through conversion Funnel X or Funnel Y, or if Title X or Title Y convinces more people to buy.

 

But SEO tests are particularly insidiously challenging because there are so many components and variables that can go into a test.
