Next-Wave Content Creation Strategies for the End of the Online Ad Era

Next-Wave Content Creation Strategies for the End of the Online Ad Era | Teaching and learning English | Scoop.it

Prediction: One way or another, it won't be long before online ads go away altogether. Use these content creation strategies now to get your organization ready for the end of the online ad era....

 

Over the past month of speeches and appearances, I’ve heard two questions more often than any others:

 

1. When consumers finally tire of ads on the web (i.e., pre-roll, roadblock ads, basic banners), what will brands do?

 

2. Once all brands have started embracing content marketing, what happens then?

 

What’s interesting is that the answers to these two questions go hand in hand....

"As we venture into the 21st century, we as a society, are faced with more innovation and challenge than ever before. We now live in an interconnected world, where the Internet and global communications are simultaneously uniting and isolating us as a society.

This infographic provides a look at how we may develop 21st century critical thinkers. Using an image of a brain with eight areas that look at skills we need to know how to use,and that correspond with 21st century skills found in the Common Core and the Partnership for 21st Century Skills.

In addition there are six that we as teachers should be doing within our classrooms including:

* Integrate critical thinking skills within and across all content areas

* Establish safe, intellectually risk-free learning environments

* Allow time to develop critical thinking skills.

There is also a section called "Your Students' Path to Critical Thinking" that includes 25 recommendations.

The infographic is also available as a pdf file that you may download in an 11" x 17" version at the website.

The Future of Tablets in Education: Potential Vs. Reality of Consuming Media | MindShift By Justin Reich

The Future of Tablets in Education: Potential Vs. Reality of Consuming Media | MindShift By Justin Reich | Teaching and learning English | Scoop.it

"Someday/Monday dichotomy captures one of the core challenges in teacher professional development around education technology. One the one hand, deep integration of new learning technologies into classrooms requires substantially rethinking pedagogy, curriculum, assessment, and teacher practice (someday). For technology to make a real difference in student learning, it can’t just be an add-on. On the other hand, teachers need to start somewhere (Monday), and one of the easiest ways for teachers to get experience with emerging tools is to play and experiment in lightweight ways: to use technology as an add-on. Teachers need to imagine a new future—to build towards Someday—and teachers also need new activities and strategies to try out on Monday. Both pathways are important to teacher growth and meaningful, sustained changes in teaching and learning."
