Great marketers are always on their toes, keeping up with the news, anticipating and adapting changes as they happen. 

SEO is no exception: According to Moz, Google changes its algorithm 500-600 times per year. With so many updates happening so often, even the most diligent marketers can miss an important release or two.

Having SM apps is all well and good but how we behave in our SM circles is what concerns me as a pedagogue! This blog provides not only the affordances of the 'Twitter' apps but their potential for teaching and learning which can be explored from this site.  I would still ask more questions before use with students - but that's me!

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | Collaboration | Collaborative Learning Communities | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Creating “Collaborative Learning Communities”

“It is essential to view learning as a total community responsibility,” he says, and to expect no short cuts. Children need to be integrated, fully contributing members of the broader community, so they can feel useful and valued. (It is not just the children who need this, he adds; healthy communities also need children.)

On a practical level, the most powerful lever for change, Abbott says, is people coming together to “rethink the role of community in the learning process,” agreeing how to divide up responsibilities among professional teachers and other community members, and then launching small pilot projects that are true to their new vision. These efforts will build on each other, he says, and large-scale change will follow.

Smile, You’re Speaking Emoji: The Rapid Evolution of a Wordless Tongue ~ NY Magazine

Smile, You’re Speaking Emoji: The Rapid Evolution of a Wordless Tongue ~ NY Magazine | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

by Adam Sternbergh


'And now we’re getting to the heart of what emoji do well—what perhaps they do better even than language itself, at least in the rough-and-tumble world online. Aside from the widespread difficulty of expressing yourself in real time with your clumsy thumbs, while hunched over a lit screen, and probably distracted by 50 other things, there’s the fact that the internet is mean. The widespread anonymity of the web has marked its nascent years with a kind of insidious incivility that we all now accept with resignation. Comment sections are a write-off. “Troll” is a new and unwelcome ­subspecies of person. Twitter’s a hashtag-strewn battlefield.

"But emoji are not, it turns out, well designed to convey meanness. They are cartoons, first of all. And the emoji that ­exist—while very useful for conveying excitement, happiness, bemusement, befuddlement, and even love—are not very good at conveying anger, derision, or hate. If we can take as a given that millennials, as a generation, were raised in a digital environment—navigating, for the first time, digital relationships as an equally legitimate and in some ways dominant form of interpersonal ­interaction—it stands to reason they might be drawn to a communicative tool that serves as an antidote to ambient incivility. They might be especially receptive to, and even excited about, a tool that counteracts the harshness of life in the online world. They might be taken with emoji.

"The word that came up multiple times, in many conversations, with many people about emoji was soften."


Jim Lerman's insight: Wonderful article...full of insight. Just the thing to read over a leisurely Thanksgiving weekend. Great things to thing about, terrific illustrations, fascinating links.

Impressive case study by Lee Odden that should convince you that not only traditional SEO is dead but also how content, social and influencers are the new SEO. Curating influencers content tent helps getting in their radar and will open opportunities to engage with them before they eventually amplify your content or co-create with you.

Is 1:1 and BYOD Inevitable? - FRACTUS LEARNING | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

"The classroom is changing. Well, the students in our classrooms are changing. Our students are connected. This is not about particular devices or apps. Their connectedness is their ability to share and collaborate with anyone at anytime for a given purpose, whether it be to find information or to collaborate on a project. Our students are doing this without adults. As responsive educators, we need to understand this shift. We are asking our connected students to drop their devices at the door, walk into the classrooms we grew up in, and thrive in an ever-changing, connected world. Is this what is best for our students?"

"As a follow-up to our 9 Characteristics of 21st Century Learning we developed in 2009, we have developed an updated framework, The Inside-Out Learning Model. The goal of the model is simple enough–not pure academic proficiency, but instead authentic self-knowledge, diverse local and global interdependence, adaptive critical thinking, and adaptive media literacy. By design this model emphasizes the role of play, diverse digital and physical media, and a designed interdependence between communities and schools."
