Interesting responses, gentlemen. My own thoughts on this are that Scoop.it or other curation programs fit on different levels for different people. Like the first few months I used Twitter it was for an entirely different purpose than when I got hooked on Twitter. When I began using it for remembering and creating, with all the other pieces somewhere in the back of my mind, then I found it useful and it became part of my need-this list.

6 Best Practices of Responsive Web Design [Infographic]
Pallab Kakoti's curator insight, April 24, 4:56 AM

Responsive designs are the window into the future of web portability to drive higher per user engagement by embedding the concept of Probability Scores. An aggregate of Content Scores & Engagement Scores are debated prior to finalizing which sections gets a higher Probability Score that will eventually determine content position in the responsive design layout. Probability Scores aims at achieving better per user click through rate owing to its full width auto adaptive content display interface that adjust the landing page  content based on the device.

 

Earlier websites used to feed different URLs for different devices. For example m.sitename.com or mobile.sitename.com indicated that the URL is for mobile or smart devices. But now things have changed thanks for responsive design attributes that determines the device that is trying to access the site URL before optimizing the content layout to adjust automatically with the device interface. This way the same URL is serving any device that is trying to access the website which again is compliance for search engine algorithm.

 

Responsive design has the advantage to every inch of the device or browser interface to maximize the user’s engagement intent possibility. Compelling visual storytelling theme powered by catchy headlines or titles richly feed with an interesting content copy furthermore elevates user interest to engage. This nature in elevating intent & urge to get involved have statistically indicated the favourability of lead generation & conversion rates from responsive designs.

 

Mobile devices will overtake PC user worldwide citing encouraging statistics to enthuse responsive design for websites, emails & landing pages. Responsive design layouts devised with #ProbabilityScores are based on the overall marketing objectives & branding goals. An implosive content marketing strategy with a creative team of visual storytellers delivers inspiring results and therefore the greater goodness is in the adoption of Responsive Site Design.

Teaching 21st Century Skills Without Technology - FRACTUS Learning

Teaching 21st Century Skills Without Technology - FRACTUS Learning | Transliteracy Network | Scoop.it

"The NBC show Revolution takes place in a post-apocalyptic dystopian future. In the show, an unknown event disables all technology dependent on electricity on the planet, ranging from iPhones and televisions to engines, appliances, and batteries. People are forced to adapt to a world without functioning technology.

 

Recently, I participated in an excellent discussion on 21st century skills and their importance to the future success of today’s students. One educator posed the question “can you teach 21st century skills without technology?”

 

Before answering the question, I think it’s time to toss the moniker ’21st century skills’ and instead refer to them as the four critical elements of learning (the 4 C’s):

 

collaborationcommunicationcritical thinking and problem solvingcreativity and innovation

 

In today’s classrooms, technology can play an important role in teaching the four critical elements, but is it absolutely necessary? What would happen if all the lights went out, like they did in Revolution? Would these skills still be important to our students and their future success?"

How the brain pays attention

How the brain pays attention | Transliteracy Network | Scoop.it

"Members of Desimone’s lab are now studying how the brain shifts its focus between different types of sensory input, such as vision and hearing. They are also investigating whether it might be possible to train people to better focus their attention by controlling the brain interactions  involved in this process.

“You have to identify the basic neural mechanisms and do basic research studies, which sometimes generate ideas for things that could be of practical benefit,” Desimone says. “It’s too early to say whether this training is even going to work at all, but it’s something that we’re actively pursuing.”

Studies such as Nass et. al.'s "Cognitive Control in Media Multitaskers" have demonstrated on a general level that media multitaskers are actually rapidly task-switching and that the attentional costs of switching focus degrades efficiency in accomplishing individual tasks. But that research is just the beginning. Important to infotention is what is not yet known about how effective attentional training can be.

10 Reasons Visual Content will Dominate 2014 What marketing strategies will we focus on in 2014? What will we leave behind? This article takes a look at the rise of visual content - and why 2014 will dominate in 2014:

1. 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual. Visuals are processed 60,000X faster in the brain than text.

2. Videos on landing pages increase average page conversion rates by 86%.

3. Visual content is social-media-ready and social-media-friendly. It’s easily sharable and easily palatable.

4. Businesses who market with infographics grow in traffic an average of 12% more than those who don’t.

5. Posts with visuals receive 94% more page visits and engagement than those without.

6. 60% of consumers are more likely to click on a business whose images appear in search results.

7. Clear, detailed images carry more weight than product information or customer ratings say 67% of consumers.

8. Visuals show your products without telling people about them. This allows viewers to make their own decisions without feeling pressure from your business.

9. Visuals express ideas quickly - in a snapshot. This breaks through the overwhelming clutter of online content.

10. Visuals are becoming easier and easier to create as photo editing tools become more accessible
