7 Reasons Why Google+ Drives Hyperactive Engagement

7 Reasons Why Google+ Drives Hyperactive Engagement | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

Post by Jeff Bullas very interesting observations

 

"The Google+ Project has drawn the innovators and early adopters into its web and it is producing activities that have surprised myself and others."

 

Intro:

 

In 1962 Everett Rogers published the book “Diffusion of Innovations” where he synthesized research from over 508 diffusion studies and produced a theory that proposed 4 main elements that influence the spread of an idea.

 

1. The Innovation

An idea, practice or object that is perceived as new

 

2. Communication Channels

The means by which messages get from one individual to another

 

3. Time

The relative speed with which an innovation is adopted by members of the social system

 

4. The Social System

The people that are engaged in joint problem solving to achieve a common goal

 

He also outlined the following adopter categories that reveal the percentages of the types of participants that are involved in the innovation cycle.

Can Social Media in the Classroom Encourage Critical Thinking?

Can Social Media in the Classroom Encourage Critical Thinking? | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

Many people see social media as a harbinger for the end of critical thinking. Schools are banning teachers and students from using it, as evidenced by the recent Missouri law.

Yet a few innovative teachers have actually found ways to turn this technological enemy(?!) into an educational tool to promote critical thinking. Here are just a few examples:

An innovative and pleasant way to discover and transform information to knowledge.

An innovative and pleasant way to discover and transform information to knowledge. | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

Everyday hundreds of millions of Internet users find, collect, manage and absorb information of any kind from different sources like web pages, videos, blogs, wikis, images, online books, documents and even online courses. Different kinds of information processing serve different needs or aspects of our lives. Just reading news, for example, serves our need to be informed about what happens around us. Whereas organizing, socialising and verifying information serves our intrinsic need to transform information to knowledge and understand better the world. Finally knowledge certification serves our need for social acknowledgement, a better job and a better life.

Based on these facts there are two different needs.

- First, users must be able to find or create, filter, collect and organize the best pieces of information related to a subject. The shelf life of information is now so short that knowing where to find information is sometimes more valuable than knowing any particular piece of information.
-Secondly, users need a flexible system to manage and efficiently use this information regarding its format (web site, blog, wiki, document, video, online course) and its purpose (informing, entertaining, learning, certificating).
It is clear that the fields of social networking, information management, online learning and knowledge sharing are converging rapidly. Because of this evolution we need a new and innovative approach which simulates the natural way we gather information and learn.

An innovative platform wich has been built upon those principles, is now online. Learn more on http://www.schoox.com

Nielson Report: What's Really Happening on Social Networks

Nielson Report: What's Really Happening on Social Networks | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

Interesting and very informative piece by Brian Solis for Social Media Today.

 

This is part 6 of a series of posts where Brian introduces his new Book The End of Business as Usual.  

 

I must tell you that if you haven't gotten a copy of this book, you should, it is excellent, timely and relevant!

 

To paraphrase - social media is becoming part of our cultural fabric and even as we witness businesses, governments,sports teams, and almost every organization socialize communication efforts today,

 

****much of what we see is merely the beginning of something that will one day become something far more important than the medium itself.

 

****it is about how people are spending their time, interacting and connecting with one another, and what happens as a result.

 

To demonstrate the point, there are some profound findings from the recently released Nielsen Social Media Report.

10 Online Tools for Better Attention & Focus

10 Online Tools for Better Attention & Focus | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it
Finding focus is rapidly becoming the biggest workplace challenge. We highlight a handful of apps to help cure internet addictions and better manage your time.

 

Great article, we can all use a little help in this area

 

A recent happiness study from Matthew Killingsworth and Daniel Gilbert found that the more our minds wander, the less happy we are.

 

Summing the research, the New York Times wrote, "Whatever people were doing, whether it was having sex or reading or shopping, they tended to be happier if they focused on the activity instead of thinking about something else."

 

**In short, being mentally "present" and focused on the task at hand really does matter – quite a lot, in fact.
