Taking the Tablets - Slides - ALT-C 2012

Taking the Tablets - Slides -  ALT-C 2012 | Tools for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

James Clay's presentation on tablet computers at  ALT-C 2012

 

"The tablet computer is not a new idea, but recently has had an impact on learning and teaching across a range of institutions in the UK and elsewhere. In this session I will try to tackle the following questions.

 

What do we currently understand to be a tablet? What is the primary functionality? How are tablets being used right now for supporting, and enhancing learning and teaching? What sort of learning activities and scenarios are making best use of the tablet format? Are these devices for content consumption, content creation, interaction, or all three? So where next? Where will tablets take us? Do institutions purchase tablets for all their students? Or do we let or require students to buy and bring their own? And if the latter what does this mean for how we organise provision?..."

8 Social Curation Tricks For Pinterest And Beyond | iMediaConnection

8 Social Curation Tricks For Pinterest And Beyond | iMediaConnection | Tools for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"Today curation takes on a different meaning. Organizations have evolved from collecting artifacts to digital curation of media and content.

Anyone and everyone can, and do, curate using everything from bookmarking sites to social networks. "Social curation," as we call it, is simply the act of sharing, categorizing, and spreading content to others.

The content can be your own or someone else's. And, because you are sharing content that lives in its place of origin via linking, it is not considered stealing.

 

Why do people spend hours online bookmarking, pinning, and reposting?

We all want to be recognized for our expertise, talents, and savvy. Posting content we care about displays our creativity, interests, opinions, and personality.

On the receiving end, people enjoy discovering and exploring things that are highly relevant and interesting.

 

In this article, we'll discuss how marketers can get in on the social curation boom in a meaningful way.

 

There are a lot of websites out there offering curation-type services. To get a clear sense of how a brand might leverage curation, we can break them down into categories.

- Social bookmarking and news;

- Sharing;

- Aggregation and syndication networks.

 

Here are eight ways your brand can get in on the action.

 

1. Become a curator creator:

This tactic is strictly for warriors because it takes time, diligence, and a step outside the marketing box to become one with a community. Becoming a curator will mean rolling up your sleeves to create your own Pinterest board or other social network profile.

 

2. Create an interest-based content strategy:

As marketers, we tend to base our communications around products and target markets. To be an awesome content curator or creator, you'll want to push that into the back of your mind and focus on interests. This can be accomplished with some listening, observation, and information collection on what your customers care about when they aren't out buying your product.

 

3. Optimize for popular sharing topics...

 

4. Treat photography as being as important as copy:

Video and photography is as valuable as an article. When you're writing your next brilliant article, put time into article images so people are inspired to not only share the article, but also to pin it on Pinterest.

 

5. Make something worth sharing:

For curation, consider its lasting value and how it fits into popular topics and interest lists. When you see their eyes light up and they send it forward into their communities, you've done your job well.

 

6. Make it sharable:

Add sharing buttons to your content on your blog, website, shopping cart, and email campaigns. People will do things that require one-click.

 

7. Make friends with influencers:

Extend your influencer outreach to leaders in Reddit, Pinterest, and Tumblr communities so that when you have something great to share, you've aligned with partners to help get your content out.

 

8. Post from the inside:

People just want to get to know the people behind the brand...."

“So what’s all this got to do with Pinterest?”

 

You might ask.

 

Well, one of the often quoted reasons for using Pinterest is to share recipes, so I first started exploring the site for ideas and tips, but then quickly got pulled into a visual smorgasbord of possibilities (be warned, like many social media sites, it can very addictive!)...

Curation tools to help you cope with info-overload | Tools for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"My top three preferred platforms for sourcing and sorting through qualified curators and their content are Twitter, Scoop.it and Google Plus" says Debra Askanase on the Socialbrite blog.

 

It's interesting to read how she explains her daily routine with Scoop.it which involved both publishing and following topics she has a professional interest in. "If you have only 30 minutes each day to read the latest news in your industry, start with Scoop.it; it serves up the newest information in a very readable format."

 

Check out her topics, including Facebook research and best practices.
