How to clear your Facebook search history

 

Can you lose your Facebook Page because you didn't follow the rules? Facebook would never shut down a Page because they ran a contest and did something like... oh, I don't know, maybe offer to donate a dollar to charity for every Like their Page gets... right?

I'm constantly seeing people saying they've never heard of a Page being shut down for violating a rule and that Facebook doesn't enforce most of them anyway. Well, here are two examples of some popular Pages that were shut down by Facebook for some seemingly innocent contest rule violations. Think it's okay to do it just because you see the big dogs doing it? Think again.

It's always great practice to also  to go back and review what you've posted and commented on just in case. This is a must-do.

Yes Dawn, and I think it's not only a must-do but also an educational matter.

Notetaking In The Digital Classroom: A Blended Learning Approach

Notetaking In The Digital Classroom: A Blended Learning Approach | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

How Noteaking Is Changing


It’d be easy to fall victim to hyperbole here and suggest that notetaking is the stuff of electricity and holograms, but that’s only partly true. Today, 40% of students prefer a mix of physical and digital notes. In the digital classroom then, the primary shift parallels blended learning: a mix of physical and electronic information that serves as a compromise between “old” and “new” learning.

 

In the digital classroom, recording pens, tablets, laptops, audio software, and social media make recording, reviewing, sharing, and storing these notes different than it was even 10 years ago. The infographic below explores how.

More on MOOCs - the topic sure is generating a lot of conversation and articles.

It's about bloody time a revollution hit universities.  But IMHO, MOOCs are far from being the answer.  The compound the problem.

What is Social Networking?

 

Put simply, social networking is a way for one person to meet up with other people on the Net. That's not all though. Some people use social networking sites for meeting new friends on the Net.

The Power of Concentration

The Power of Concentration | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
We can learn a lot from the way Sherlock Holmes trains his mind.

 

MEDITATION and mindfulness: the words conjure images of yoga retreats and Buddhist monks. But perhaps they should evoke a very different picture: a man in a deerstalker, puffing away at a curved pipe, Mr. Sherlock Holmes himself. The world’s greatest fictional detective is someone who knows the value of concentration, of “throwing his brain out of action,” as Dr. Watson puts it. He is the quintessential unitasker in a multitasking world.
