How to Help Students Improve Their Note-Taking Skills

How to Help Students Improve Their Note-Taking Skills | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Students love it when teachers provide class notes—the more complete the set, the better. Students want the teacher’s notes online because it’s convenient, they’re readable, well organized, and relieve the student of having to expend much effort during class. A lot of students need the teacher’s notes because they aren’t very good note-takers themselves. They practice stenography rather than note-taking, trying to get down the teacher’s words exactly. That way, even if they don’t understand, the

Creating a VoiceThread - YouTube

Jim Lerman's insight:


As many of you know, VoiceThread is quite a robust platform for creating mediated presentation, annotating them, and sharing them with others -- including opportunities for them to add audio or video comments of their own.


This video offers the basics of VoiceThread in a simple, easy to follow format. If you haven't tried VoiceThread, you owe it to yourself and your students to take it for a test drive.

The School of Open

The School of Open | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

description by The Scout Report


"The School of Open offers free online courses, face-to-face workshops, and training programs on topics that loosely gather around the subject of openness - in education, research, and science. Typical topics include Creative Commons licenses (what they are and how to use them), open educational resources, and how to utilize and share creative works. Interested readers can register for Facilitated courses (Creative Commons for K-12 Educators) or Stand-alone courses (Get CC Savvy) that allow students to work through the material at their own pace. Training Programs are offered in Spanish, English, Chinese, and other languages. Readers may also volunteer to design and run their own courses through the site."

Social Media Marketing: 3 Digital Local Marketing Tactics You Must Use in 2015

Social Media Marketing: 3 Digital Local Marketing Tactics You Must Use in 2015 | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Eight in 10 American adults are now online, and teenagers and millennials are permanently glued to smartphones and tablets. So, for a local business looking to market its products and services digitally, the iron has never been hotter.

But which tactics to use? How about email? Yep, email is still as relevant today as it has ever been. Did you know, for example, that 91 percent of consumers check their email daily, and that 66 percent have made a purchase online as a result of an email marketing message?

What about social? Around three-quarters of online adults use social media, with Facebook driving almost two-thirds of all traffic to Shopify sites.

And don’t forget about your online reputation – 79 percent of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations, and a one-star increase in your Yelp rating can lead to a 5-9 percent increase in revenue.

Check out the visual below for three digital local marketing tactics you must use in 2015, which comes courtesy of Brand Muscle.

A great set of tutorials on how to use social media. Clear, easy to follow, and completely understandable. Very helpful for those of us unfamiliar with the mechanics of social media. A nice refresher, too, for those of us writing blogs and servicing websites. Aloha, Russ.
