The Most Popular Social Network for Young People? Texting

The Most Popular Social Network for Young People? Texting | Technology & the ESOL Classroom | Scoop.it
“Yes, it's a social network. Also: Just a third of high school seniors place a call each day, and more teens report using Pandora than Instagram or Snapchat.”

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s curator insight, June 25, 2014 7:43 AM

For young people,

Facebook is the newspaper,

and websites are the authors.


"2. Websites are much smaller than social networks. If you're confused why digital publishers obsess over Facebook and social media, make this graph your smartphone wallpaper. Even the most popular site among teens—BuzzFeed—has fewer daily visitors than any network or app in the graph. (Even Beats, which is considered a tiny music service, has more daily users than any website in the survey.) Seventy three percent of teens don't read BuzzFeed, 84 percent don't read Reddit, and 96 percent don't read Mashable or Gawker. For young people, Facebook is the newspaper, and websites are the authors."

Excelente vídeo con una clara explicación sobre cómo utilizar la Herramienta para Presentaciones de Google Drive. Simple y una alternativa más a lo ya tradicional.

Arlis Groves's curator insight, July 4, 2014 4:56 PM

Why choose Google Drive's Presentation app over Power Point?  No reason, unless you are collaborating on a presentation.  Since more students are working on projects electronically and from different locations, this could be a great tool.

Daniel Tan's curator insight, May 20, 2015 7:40 PM

I think all these online response systems requiring the use of the students' devices are wonderful. However, is there an impact, perhaps one that might be significant enough, of the use of students' devices in that the device is personal. Do students using an older device relatively to others in the class be sensitive in its use When majority of the classmates have the latest ohone device models. Also when teachers and faculty be comfortable of students while using the devices in the exercise are distracted (actual or presumed or perceived) with other apps during that exercise? 

 

Also when the wireless access point be robust and reliable enough when it experiences a surge/flood of signals when large numbers of simultaneous responses are transmitted in a small time window. 

 

My observation is that teachers do not want to be encumbered with such distractions, uncertainty and confrontation when only partial student responses are recorded due to technical issues. The latter also leads to the technical support of student devices which is unknown (which version of OS), unfamiliar (what other apps or potential of interdependencies) and uncertainty (are you sure they are not checking on their apps while others are still thinking of their responses?)

Chris Carter's curator insight, May 20, 2015 8:11 PM

There are a number of student response systems. The more important question, rather than which one are you using, is are you using any one at all?

K_Lynam's curator insight, May 26, 2015 5:31 PM

Will cost you to get benefit of asking multiple questions, securing data & privacy, and being able to export data. $75/year for basic protections & additional questions, or $180 to add colleagues and get all Mentimeter has to offer. Device agnostic - works across platforms. Real time answers to multiple choice, open-ended or scaled responses.

Haiku Deck on helppo tapa luoda visuaalisesti näyttäviä dioja. Kuvahakuominaisuus on mainio. Haiku on helppo käyttää, rajoituksena vain se, että formaatti on melko joustamaton. Muistiinpanodiojen tekemiseen en tätä käyttäisi, mutta virikedioihin, ideoiden esittelyyn, mihin tahansa, missä tärkeintä on luoda tunnelmaa.
