Social media ad spend will increase next year as “pay for play” increasingly becomes the norm for any social business.

Content marketing will continue to grow, particularly in the video space. And on that note, video doesn’t just mean YouTube anymore – back in August Facebook passed YouTube for desktop video views, delivering nearly a billion more.

 

Finally, Facebook could struggle to maintain its position as the king of engagement. Visual mediums such as Instagram, Snapchat and Pinterest continue to gain market share, and as Facebook ages and becomes less “cool”, brands may look elsewhere to reach the key 18-34 demographic.

For content marketers that are looking to increase content production and save time, content curation is the answer. In addition, your audience will thank you for exposing them to new sources of 3rd party, independent content. In fact, according to a recent study, best-in-class marketers use a content marketing mix of 65% created content and 25% curated content.

25 Of The Best Resources For Teaching With YouTube

25 Of The Best Resources For Teaching With YouTube | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

As both hardware and software design improve, the possibility of mobile learning is increasingly accessible.

 

Video is undoubtedly at the core of a modern mobile learning experience. (As opposed to, say, an early 20th century “mobile” experience that was likely hands-on, place-based, and experiential.) To actually be useful beyond the cool-video-as-a-writing-prompt-every-once-in-a-while stage is going to require smarter tools. Teachers need to be able to capture, upload, download, edit, slow down, speed up, annotate, curate, share, and otherwise “own” video content so that is fully merges with everything else.

 

With that in mind, below are 25 of the best resources for teaching with YouTube. Some are web-based, some are apps, and others are guides or tips. Let us know in the comments what your favorites are that we mioght have missed

A Beautiful Visual On The impact of Social Media on Students | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

There is a growing debate inside educational circles on the impact of social media on students learning. Studies are divided between those that empirically attest to the importance of including these web tools in learning and others that view them as mere waste of time and detrimental to students overall cognitive and attentional capacities. Apparently there is no solid convergence on a common decision on this topic. The visual below, which I learned from Mr. Kirsch's Blog,  beautifully captures the different takes on the  use of social media by students

The Internet of Things by 2020: what’s it worth? (INFOGRAPHIC)VizWorld.com | VizWorld.com | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

While keeping tabs on the Internet of Things (IoT) this infographic appeared in one of Vizworld’s curation lists. If it seems simple or even simplistic consider that it is probably created for a general business audience. What’s most interesting is the visualization of the discrepancy between four highly regarded sources on the number of units that will be around in 2020, less than 6 years from now. The massive range from 26 billion units (Gartner) to 212 billion units (IDC) can be interpreted as probably a lack of consensus on what an IoT device is, or will be. Will it include your handheld device as well as your temperature-sensitive clothing? But certainly the market (or multiple markets) implementing sensors and connectivity will be both massive and profitable.

10 Ways Teachers Can Make The Best of Twitter ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

As a micro-blogging platform, Twitter has rapidly grown to widespread popularity due mainly to its unique features that set it apart from other social networking websites. One of the foundational principles of Twitter and also a key element in its success is brevity. Tweets are limited to 140 characters which is a short portion of text yet a very powerful way to communicate. In a digitally focused world where distractions and short attention span are common currencies, people tend to connect more with short and succinct content, something which Twitter excels at providing.

The majority of respondents invest more than two hours each day building their social reputations, yet almost 40 percent of these professionals aren’t sure whether or not their efforts are working. That’s 10 hours a week dedicated to the same imprecise science and guesswork of traditional advertising.
