This picture shows how social media has developed over the years. It mentions how many people thought that social media was started with facebook, when in reality it was really started by other projects that you can see above. This picture/concept shows the differences between which sites took off and which didn't, depending on our cultural preferences.

If you've ever thought of getting into using Evernote, but weren't sure where to start, this would be a good place. Teachers can use Evernote to organise all sorts and share with students. It's a great tool, I'd recommend giving it a go.

​ThingLink as an Educational Tool ~ Mark A. Bates online

​ThingLink as an Educational Tool ~ Mark A. Bates online | Technology I should know about | Scoop.it

by Mark Bates

 

"ThingLink is a tool which falls into a similar category as Glogster and Prezi which offer users an alternative to traditional assignment and presentation formats. These types of tools utilize the mashability of the wide number of online media services to create something new. "ThingLink allows creators to upload or import static images and add to create “interactive learning modules (ILMs)” which can be navigated by the audience. Once the focus image is upload or link to via URL or Flickr, the user clicks on the area to insert an Rich Media Tags (RMT). Rich Media Tags are points added to an image, linking them to text, audio, video, social media, photos and images. On insertion, a small window prompts the user to specify a link to content and a description if warranted. The service identifies the type of media contained within the tag and creates the necessary functions to display it. Users can then choose if the product is to be made public, kept private or be a collaborative work with others on ThingLink. The creations are stored on ThingLink and, although not downloadable, can be shared in a variety of ways."
Via Jim Lerman
Tracy Hanson's insight:

Like all learners, educators have a style of designing interactive lessons that fit them best.  ThingLink joins the group of tools for educators to chose - will it fit into your bag?

Trip Hawkins' new game focuses on social emotional learning (podcast)

Trip Hawkins' new game focuses on social emotional learning (podcast) | Technology I should know about | Scoop.it

"Trip Hawkins, the founder of Electronic Arts and EA Sports, is turning his attention to social emotional learning with a new game to help 6- to 12-year-olds develop social skills that can help prevent bullying and help build better relationships and decision making."

 

by Larry Magid

 

"When Trip Hawkins left Apple to start Electronic Arts in 1982, he wanted to make the type of games that he and other young adult males liked to play. Thirty-one years and four children later, Hawkins interests have changed. He still wants to build games, but he's aiming them at young children in the hopes of helping them develop social and emotional skills.

 

"In an interview (scroll down to listen), Hawkins said he learned about social emotional learning (SEL) from his own children. "I learned about it because almost two decades ago my oldest child stared attending on one of the first schools (Nueva School) that had this kind of curriculum and I stared learning about it." He admitted "that was a chance for me to realize -- frankly as much children began to give me examples of how my behavior needed to improve and used SEL teaching as their evidence, I realized that they were right." He's now "excited about bringing curriculum like social emotional learning into game technology and helping kids to have a chance to learn" about it."
