Greater Reach and a Greater Audience with Empire Avenue #empireavenue

Greater Reach and a Greater Audience with Empire Avenue #empireavenue | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

#empireavenue  Getting greater traction for your business is all about content marketing these days. And that means lots of sharing on social networks. But the problem for small businesses is that their own social networks can be rather small. So how can you get a greater reach and a greater audience for your content – and hence for your business?

Of course, you could pay to get Facebook or LinkedIn to promote your posts, or you could pay for Twitter to promote your tweets. But as I found to my cost, your limited budget is soon exhausted by each of these options. A far better proposition is to run “missions” on Empire Avenue in order to get greater exposure for your content.

Personalized Learning: Schools without Classrooms - Masters and PhDs

Personalized Learning: Schools without Classrooms - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Vittra runs 30 schools in Sweden and wants learning to take place everywhere in its schools, so it threw out the “old-school” thinking of straight desks in a line in a four-walled classroom. They eliminated all of its classrooms in favor of an environment that fosters children’s “curiosity and creativity.” The schools are non-traditional in every sense: there are no letter grades and learners learn in groups at their level, not necessarily by age. Admission to the school is free, as long as the child has a personal number (like a social security number) and one of the child’s parents is a Swedish taxpayer.

Education Administration Masters - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Education administration master’s degrees, (and variants such as education management master’s or educational leadership master’s) are designed for careers in elementary and secondary school administration, college administration, and educational supervision, management and leadership. Many colleges and universities offer these masters programs online. This page provides information on what is studied in these degrees and provides links to where you can study them online.

The e-textbook transformation

The e-textbook transformation | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

A new wave of e-textbooks is giving students more than just words and a few hotlinks on a digital page. Publishers over the last few years have been adding video, interactive maps and gamified quizzes designed to engage students more deeply in their learning.

“Think of it as making the textbook a hands-on activity,” says Andrew Miller, an ASCD faculty member and technology expert. “It’s making the content come to life in a way that meets the needs of different learners—auditory learners, visual leaders, text-based learners.”

The latest e-textbooks, developed by traditional publishers as well as new players like Discovery Education, are powered by a host of adaptive features, such as adjustable levels of difficulty and instant translation into other languages. And in some districts, teachers are using platforms like Apple’s iBooks to create their own digital course materials.

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

What is it that help students pay attention?

* Problem solving

* Comparisons

* Visuals

* Questions

* Emotions

* Stories

* Contrast

* Controversy

* Brevity
