How effective people use social media

How effective people use social media | The 21st Century | Scoop.it
About 99 per cent of professionals fail to optimise the way they use social media. That’s a made-up fact but it’s likely to be true. The main problem is that human beings are vain and while as executives we pretend that our online life is All Business, really we’re hoping [...]

A Learning Secret: Don’t Take Notes with a Laptop

Digital Gloss's curator insight, June 4, 1:24 PM

Here again, the studies seem to show that longhand writing should not be relegated to irrelevance.

From the article: "taking notes by hand forces the brain to engage in some heavy “mental lifting,” and these efforts foster comprehension and retention. By contrast, when typing students can easily produce a written record of the lecture without processing its meaning, as faster typing speeds allow students to transcribe a lecture word for word without devoting much thought to the content."

Why tablets are failing miserably in higher education | The 21st Century | Scoop.it
While Apple and Google are fighting a FUD war for the hearts and minds of K-12 campuses, there's one area of education that neither has been able to penetrate with success: higher ed. Specifically, I'm referring to the conglomerate of colleges and universities across the US (and likely abroad).
