How Are We Using Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]

How Are We Using Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Web 2.0 and Social Media | Scoop.it

Did you know that between 2011 and 2012, time spent on social media increased by some 30 billion minutes, representing a year-on-year increase of 37 percent?

But, according to one study, while Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest remain popular with users aged 30 and over, it’s the formerly niche social platforms such as Reddit, Github and DeviantArt that can boast the highest representation amongst the important 18-29 demographic.

 

Digital agency iAcquire partnered with SurveyMonkey to track the behaviour of social media users, presenting their key findings in this infographic...

Ten Reasons why technology is vital to education

In a typical high school a student has access to a teacher 40 minutes per day. That means she has access to that teacher 5% of her waking day, and even that time is shared with 25 classmates. She has access to the Internet 100% of the time. That's 20X better.

Give a student a link and he'll read for a day. Teach a student how to surf and he'll read forever. Or something like that. ;)

Great Tutorial on How to Create your Own eBook on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Great Tutorial on How to Create your Own eBook on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Web 2.0 and Social Media | Scoop.it

"Creating an eBook online is no rocket science and anyone with the rudimentary knowledge of how to use internet can get his/her eBook up and viral in a couple of minutes provided the content part of it is already written in a word document. I find the typing and editing part the most  difficult stage in this process;  however, if you just want to set up a short ebook for your students then that would not take you much time.


Just a couple of weeks ago I shared here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a list of great apps  to use to create eBooks on iPad and I received several emails following that post and some of you asked for tutorials on this topic. Here is one of my favorite tutorials on how to create an eBook on iPad that I always recommend to my fellow teachers. Check it out below and share with us what you think of it. Enjoy"

Stefanie Stewart Crosser's curator insight, September 20, 5:08 PM

There are various ways to use technology in the classroom, but how long does it take to prepare lessons through technology? They say "Don't take your work home" because it can seriously affect one's family and home-life, but is there enough time in the day to prepare effective lessons without taking your job home? Teachers are not paid enough to create their own lesson plans using technology - let along to teach, with all of the constant changing standards!

If you teach digital citizenship in any grade from preK to 12 the site that Richard Byrne discusses is worth checking out. The resources are organized by age (as in elementary, middle years, high school) and there are parent resources as well as resources on copyright and ones for teachers. Each resource is described and with a click you can arrive at the destination!

There are many learning models that we may explore, and this one is presented a bit differently than others I have seen. Quoting from the post "The goal of the model is simple enough–not pure academic proficiency, but instead authentic self-knowledge, diverse local and global interdependence, adaptive critical thinking, and adaptive media literacy."

There are nine domains in this model (listed below) and the post provides additional information.

* Five Learning Actuators

* Changing Habits

* Transparency

* Self-Initiated Transfer

* Mentoring and Community

* Changing Roles

* Climate of Assessment

* Thought and Abstraction

* Expanding Literacies

Las características reflejadas en el esquema y explicadas en el artículo sobre el modelo de enseñanza en el siglo XXI, están íntimamente ligadas  a la tendencia BYOD, como se refleja en el rol que videojuegos, la curación de contenidos, el cambio de papel de "estudiante receptor" a "estudiante creador de conocimiento", implicación en la enseñanza de todos los entornos del estudiante o la actuación del profesor como curador y guía en el conocimiento-aprendizaje de los alumnos.

The Future of SEO Is Social | Web 2.0 and Social Media | Scoop.it

Some reports state that social indicators (shares, retweets, +1’s) are already more important than incoming links. 

 

This isn’t exactly news, as we’ve seen Google systematically destroy search manipulators for the past couple of years. While it isn’t exactly headline material, it does show that the future of search is a blend between traditional organic search and social media.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, April 1, 2013 7:53 AM

Social Dominance & New SEO
I wrote Storytelling is the New SEO (http://www.slideshare.net/martinmartysmith/storytelling-new-seo ) because we play for shares. If we play for shares some content, the content capable of generating shares, is more important than other content.


This is especially true in the case of "social search" or Facebook's new "graph search" that moves technical SEO to the backseat as social search drives the car. Because when you are in a car looking for pizza you don't care about technical SEO. You care about what tastes good :). 

If that is the case, then the WAY we generate content needs to change. We need to CURATE more since our curation sends the "we are listening and care about someone's take other than our own" signal and because we can test with curation and then confirm with creation.

Storytelling is the new SEO has almost 7,000 views so it struck a nerve. The nerve it struck is our attempts at understanding the new SEO, the more social SEO the SEO dominated by social signals.
