I like the feature of being able to grade the discussions. I love Edmodo, however, Schoology looks like a great solution for secondary classes and their workflow.

On incorporating technology in the classroom

Hannah Roukas's curator insight, October 22, 2013 7:55 AM

This post was short but to the point.  Technology should be one of the subjects kids learn in school, it should be used to help kids develop ideas.  Teachers should use technology to keep lessons interesting so kids don't fall asleep or become uninteresting.

How Much Data Is Generated On Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Tinder & WhatsApp Every Minute? | AllTwitter | Tech Tools to Facilitate Learning | Scoop.it

Here’s the thing: the internet never sleeps.

 

Which means data never sleeps, and the internet sure likes to use up a lot of it. How much? In any given minute, 277,000 tweets are published on Twitter, 216,000 photos are sent to Instagram and 8,333 videos are shared on Vine.

 

And we’re just getting started. Over that same 60 second period, 347,222 photos are sent on WhatsApp, 416,667 swipes are made on Tinder and 3,472 images are pinned on Pinterest.

 

And if you think that’s impressive, Google receives 4 millions search queries, Facebook users share 2.46 million pieces of content and 204 million email messages are sent each and every minute of the day.

 

This visual from DOMO looks at how much data is generated every minute across the net....

Stephanie Katcher's curator insight, July 26, 2013 6:15 PM

As our life becomes intertwined with our virtual existence we may neglect to realize what happens in sixty seconds is cumulatively astronomical, but intimately pointless. Participation in the information age is vital but the "endless" internet erases the participants ability to rely of clear boundaries and structure. It becomes more and more important that individuals understand their purpose, and their intentions so that they can leverage the digital world to their advantage not their demise.
