A large population of Internet users are 50 and older, utilizing the Web for social media, shopping and even education.

Vanessa Camilleri's insight:

It would also be interesting to know the percentage of gamers within the older generation... I wouldn't necessarily assume that they'd be out inhabiting WoW... but then again... why not?

"What is the ideal length for a blog post, tweet or YouTube video? Good question! If you’re in the business of creating content, whether for user education, lead generation, or data collection, you want to make sure the information you share is of the length people want to see and hear."

Edudemic's curator insight, April 12, 2013 12:02 PM

Some call them ‘connected educators’ while other use the phrase ‘digital teacher’ and many prefer the term ’21st century teacher.’ Whatever terms you use to describe modern teachers, it’s important to know what the terms actually mean. There’s a fabulous wiki devoted to just this topic here which houses some incredible bits of information. It’s by Andrew Churches who has curated quite a treasure trove of useful information for any teacher looking to outline what he or she actually does as a modern educator.

The word "transmedia" was hardly to be heard at MIPTV. Does this mean it's dead, or rather fully integrated in TV production?

Vanessa Camilleri's insight:

worth reading! I think we have to avoid building up too much hype on the word transmedia and focus more on what it can actually do and where it can actually lead us.

Timeline of Educational Technology in Schools Infographic | e-Learning Infographics | tech to learn | Scoop.it
The Timeline of Educational Technology in Schools Infographic shows how educational technology has evolved in schools over the past 114 years.

Via Ana Loureiro
Vanessa Camilleri's insight:

I look at this timeline and I realise that our advances in Educational Technology were done at a really slow pace compared to the US. When you consider that smartboards were introduced in the US way back in 1991 and we have just adopted them in the last few years, there's a lot to think about. In 2012 there were 1.5 million iPads being used in schools - we're starting to get there. I am not really saying that iPads will solve all the problems - what I'm saying is that while in the US teachers, students and parents have been used to the culture of technology in schools since the 1980's, here in Malta, all those involved in schools have just started testing the waters. It will take time.

"

But his new effort, a five-person outfit called Smart Patients, actually does look like something that could actually change the way patients, doctors, and industry interact. Its web site, envisioned as a kind of combination of clinical trials search engine and message board community, might further empower cancer patients whose relationship with their disease has already been changed fundamentally by the Internet.

... that takes advantage of the untapped knowledge that exists in a network of cancer patients and caregivers both so they can better help each other and so the healthcare system around them can learn from them. The two goals of the company are to help patients and caregivers to learn even more even faster, and to innovate the ways the healthcare system can learn from them.”


Via Howard Rheingold
Vanessa Camilleri's insight:

Collective intelligence can really make a difference if harnessed and directed to the proper channels of communication. Moderation (although this may be a bit tricky to define), is crucial in these cases to avoid peer support turning into some kind of mass frenzy.

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, April 24, 2013 10:18 AM

At times, I've been a caregiver, a patient, a part of a support community for a patient, and I can tell you from intimate personal experience that collective intelligence among patients online is a tidal force. I'm glad to see that knowledgeable people are working to rationalize what patients have been doing for years -- pooling their experiences and knowledge in an online collective intelligence that can have life or death consequences.

Andrea Phillips:  "It's become fashionable to hate the word 'transmedia' in some circles. The T-word has been very good to me. It's netted me any number of speaking engagements and website hits and sold me a book, among other things, so I feel a certain loyalty to it. I don't think I'd be enjoying the same degree of professional success if I hadn't very consciously embraced That Word back in 2010 or so."
