What Do You Know? Examining the Big 4 Online Answer Sites

What Do You Know? Examining the Big 4 Online Answer Sites | Understanding Social Media | Scoop.it

[You can use the Big 4 online Answer Sites for market research, content ideas, and to build credibility and thought leadership for you and your company. Here's how.]

 

An ideal connection between social media and search might just be “Answer” sites. The essential concept behind an answer site is that visitors can post a question eager to get it answered by someone considered an expert, who is knowledgeable in the subject matter. The response could also be powered by public knowledge with consensus determining the “best” answer. Answer sites offer users the capability to be both the inquisitor and the expert. More often than not, in basic human interaction, we can answer each others’ questions based on our own personal familiarity. We can achieve this on a massive scale using these Answer Sites.

Tweeting for teachers: how can social media support teacher professional development? | Pearson Centre for Policy and Learning

Tweeting for teachers: how can social media support teacher professional development? | Pearson Centre for Policy and Learning | Understanding Social Media | Scoop.it

In the current constrained financial climate, this type of low cost, self-directed teacher development is interesting. Might the spread of such informal, peer-based, online CPD help to support the drive to raise teaching standards at minimal cost? This report explores this question, focusing on:

• how teachers and other educators are currently using social media to aid their professional development, and what they and their students gain from it;

• what evidence there is for the benefits of peer-to-peer teacher CPD, and for using social media in this way; and

• what teaching can learn from industry in this respect.

Drawing on emerging academic research in this area, and on the experience of trailblazing teachers, it recommends ways in which school leaders and policymakers can exploit the benefits of social media for effective and affordable teacher professional development.

How To Find Royalty Free Images That Haven’t Been Overused

How To Find Royalty Free Images That Haven’t Been Overused | Understanding Social Media | Scoop.it

I don't know you, but for me, images are very important. A text without an image, is like a sky without stars. For this reason, I like this post with several ressources, maybe you too! [note Martin Gysler]

 

“Hey, I’ve seen that image before. Actually, I’ve seen it many times before.”


Images allow you to express what words can’t.

 

They draw the viewer in and elicit an emotional impact, providing your users with information while confirming that what your selling or promoting is real.

 

There are many affordable options available to purchase stock photography. This may be a blessing or a curse. Affordability often comes at the cost of originality.

 

It’s important to consider your ideals and the image’s ability to illustrate a concept perfectly. But consider originality as well. You wouldn’t want to fall into the trap of using cliche imagery because it’s easy and convenient.

Marty, thanks for the comment.

I just found another great way to search for Creative Commons images: http://search.creativecommons.org/

It automates a CC search on Google Images, Flickr and more. Wow!
