Will Apple Need a Social Network to Manage Their iWatch?

Will Apple Need a Social Network to Manage Their iWatch? | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Wearable technology will change us and Apple more than you expect.  I like how this article shares both what wearable technology will do as addresses what it will not do.

Will wearable technology force Apple to purchase or create a social network?  Mike Elgan says YES.

Teaching the Net Generation: Teachers' perspectives in young Canadians in a wired world

Teaching the Net Generation: Teachers' perspectives in young Canadians in a wired world | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

From the website

 

Teachers had no trouble identifying several significant ways in which digital media are already enriching students' school experience. As well as providing access to a wealth of knowledge and learning resources (provided students were able to tell good information from bad), teachers told us that digital media gives students new opportunities to have an impact outside of the classroom, by publishing their work and communicating with people around the world, and to collaborate with their peers both during and outside of school hours. Finally, teachers also spoke of the value of digital media in allowing them to appeal to students' different learning styles – giving math instruction in a visual or kinesthetic form, for example, through a “virtual protractor.” This also held true for students with special needs, such as the student with autism who used a dictation program on his iPad to overcome his difficulties with writing.

Top Tech Trends and People of 2012

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

This is a course created by fellow curator Ken Morrison.  It contains enough information on social media that everyone will find something of interest.  Thanks for sharing, Ken!
