9 Great iPad Apps to Grow and Manage Your Personal Learning Network ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it
One of the great things I love about iPad is that it allows me to keep track of my personal learning network wherever I am with Internet connection. I always have instant access to resources, discussions, and materials shared on my PLN. This ubiquitous kind of connectivity is important to my personal as well as professional growth. To this end, I am drawing on a bunch of powerful iPad apps that, in my eyes, are indispensable to any individual keen on joining  0n-the-go learning trend. Below are some of the apps I am personally using. These apps span different areas from social bookmarking to note taking. Enjoy

Here at scoop.it we believe that adding a visual touch to your content is highly important. Pictures are the first thing your audience will notice, and likely what they will remember most about your blog. We allow you to choose from our photo suggestions or add your own! Many other social tools allow similar image manipulations. Here are some options.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 28, 10:49 AM

(From the article) How to do you figure out your strategy? The first thing is to fully understand your ideal client and where they hang out. If you sell mostly to women, Pinterest is a good social media choice. If your customers are more the business type, then LinkedIn is a solid choice. Twitter is also very effective when it comes to reaching prospects in real time. And don’t forget Google +, which is growing in clout due to the massive Google search machine behind it.

Get your ideal client firmly in mind, as this person is the foundation. And after that, it becomes a numbers game.

Social Learning – Productivity drain or HR game changer?

Social Learning – Productivity drain or HR game changer? | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

The reality is, 1.5 billion of us use social networking channels on a daily basis, often making the likes of Twitter and YouTube our first port of call for consuming information. It’s therefore no surprise that social technologies have crept into the corporate environment as informal learning mediums over the last few years in particular.

 

That said, whilst anecdotal evidence among our network suggests employee demand is high for this approach to learning, the majority of HR departments continue to shy away from formally integrating such technologies into their wider L&D strategies.

Simply put, a social media dashboard makes social media management super-easy. It syncs all your social media accounts in one convenient place.

 

In its truest sense, a dashboard also allows you to see all your social media analytics at one place, thus eliminating the need to manually go into each account and check what happened in the past week.

 

A robust dashboard will let you connect with all major social media platforms out there. At the bareminimum, most good tools will sync Facebook, Twitter, Google + and LinkedIn.



Gemma Shannon's curator insight, September 25, 2:34 PM

Social Media Dashboards such as Hootsuite and Buffer can be invaluable when it comes to scheduling content across multiple social media platforms as well as monitoring engagement. Jeff Bullas shares insights into 5 of the best out there.

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals is of vital importance, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way we use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.

10 Fatal Pinterest Mistakes You Are Probably Making

10 Fatal Pinterest Mistakes You Are Probably Making | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

So let me guess, you’ve been on Pinterest for several months now and you’re scratching your head thinking “Why am I not getting more followers? Why aren’t my pins getting repinned?” 

 

Many Pinterest users have unrealistic expectations about how to create a successful Pinterest account. Somehow they think that if you just push a bunch of pretty images out onto Pinterest you’re all set!

 

Getting high engagement on Pinterest is no different than getting high engagement on any other social network. You are building relationships online and that takes time… just like it does in real life.

 

Success on Pinterest isn’t just one thing; there are multiple factors that contribute to operating a successful account. I have said this before; there is a lot of science to Pinterest success.
