This may sound like a lofty title, but it’s not wrong. There’s an impressive presentation making the rounds dubbed “Mobile is eating the World” by Benedict Evans. In the presentation, Evans shows some staggering charts, interesting factoids, and all the other statistics you’d expect with a title so grand. It makes me think about mobile learning, mobile browsing, and mobile everything.

A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic | Today's Education Technology | Scoop.it

Do you know the history of social media? Think we'll remember Facebook in 20 years? This detailed timeline is a must-see.


Social media began decades before the Facebook era. It started, more or less, with CompuServe and Arpanet back in 1969. A couple years later, the first-ever email was sent.

It has evolved over the past few decades into a powerful tool, as seen in this social media history timeline. With so much that’s happened over the past few decades, we can only guess what’s coming next for social media.

Anyone who has used the Prezi platform would know that creating a Prezi and uploading it to Prezi.com is easy enough, however when it comes to converting it to a YouTube video, there seems to be no native method of doing so.

 

While you can convert PowerPoint to video formats using a native PowerPoint feature, the same cannot be said for the Prezi application.

 

However, you can convert Prezi to YouTube by using a workaround.

Blaine Morrow's curator insight, June 10, 2013 11:25 AM

"Videos are great for presenting visual information and emotional appeals, but not particularly effective at diving below the surface of non-visual theoretical or abstract topics or for driving critical thinking. What’s more, any video presented in class must compete for attention and memory with the five-plus hours the typical student spends outside of class watching television programs, movies, and other onscreen entertainment. (Nielsen, 2013)"
