I guess you can never have enough curating, in this digital age anything that can keep you up to date and help visibility is worth a try. I like the way the simplify everything. I'm not sure but even with all this info I still may feel like I'm missing something and go to the individual sites anyway. But to see what the landscape looks like in a quick view Qwant is pretty cool.

SEO itself has always been somewhat of a barrier to entry for online success.

In other words, for a new person it’s so complex that it takes a long time to understand all the little things that search engines, Google specifically, are asking for. Time, capital, and energy are necessary to rank pages on the world’s most popular search engine.

Social Media Infographic: Finding Your Way Around Google+ | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

It’s about time you give some love to Google+, a social media platform set to attract more people not only because of its new dressed up interface, but also by the recent features added.

 

Google+ is obviously betting big on photos as it launches its ability to “auto awesome” images uploaded to it. Its mobile app came through with its refreshing updates as well. All in all, it has been a very active month for Google+ and the new wave of features is projected to increase its social networking share.

Now here’s an infographic ready to turn anyone who’s willing to make the jump an instant Google+ savvy user.

An Eye On New Media 2013

Here is the 2013 version of my textbook that I curated for my students at Hannam University's Linton Global College.  Next year's vesion will include more of the teacher's notes that I share with my students.  I hope that it is helpful for you.  If you would like a free PDF version of the book, send me an email at kenmorrison30 (at) yahoo (dot) com or download it at the slideshare site.

 

I put a lot of work into the 2012 version.  I feel that it passed the test of time. There are some updates and additions in this version.  I also decreased the size of many images to make it less expensive to print.

 

Please please please support the real authors of this content.   I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

  

Would you like to see the output of this class?  Here is a collection of the Scoop.it curation sites which my students created to help them prepare for their future goals or research topics:

Google+ attracted over 100,000,00 users within the first 6 months of its launch and sites with a Google +1 button across their site generate 3.5 times more visits to their Google+ Page than those without the button.

Using “secondary/tertiary sources” (yeah Wikipedia!) to improve your research

Using “secondary/tertiary sources” (yeah Wikipedia!) to improve your research | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

"Wikipedia can often get a bum rap from many in the education community. Sometimes, it’s for good reason, as it can be a VERY overused information source by students AND adults alike...Today I want to reflect on its benefits as a starting reference or secondary (maybe tertiary) source to start of your research, based on how I used it to research my History resource."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 15, 2013 10:07 PM

Many students choose to use Wikipedia as a primary resource and many teachers tell students they should not use Wikipedia...but what if you require that they confirm all information from other primary resources? Gleeson notes "I believe starting with the much maligned site had several benefits that will transfer over to the students’ use." 

He discusses four issues that students often face when searching online:

* Where do I begin? (Based on my discussions with students most students tell me they use Google, but that does not mean that they look beyond the first page of results, or know how to do searches.)

* Key word search - Do your students know how to use key words? Wikipedia may help with this.

* Secondary source drives me to primary source - Allow the secondary source to provide some foundation, but confirm with primary sources.

* Effective time management for checking sources.

Additional information on each point may be found in the post.

Robin Good: If you are interested i understanding how most people utilize and move between the use of their smartphone or tablet, to their desktops or TV screens and viceversa, this elegantly illustrated feature by Google, will definitely provide you with some new insight and some relevant data.

 

"Today 90% of our media consumption occurs in front of a screen. As consumers balance their time between smartphones, tablets, PCs and Televisions, they are learning to use these devices together to achieve their goals."

 

"...some insights from our latest research:

 

-> 90% of consumers begin a task on one device and then complete it on another device.

 

-> Smartphones are by far the most common starting point for this sequential activity.

 

-> TV no longer commands our full attention.

 

-> TV strategy should be closely aligned and integrated with the marketing strategies for digital devices.

 

In essence: "While consumers are using more than one device simultaneously, content viewed on one device can trigger specific behavior on the other.

Businesses should therefore not limit their conversion goals and calls to action to only the device where they were initially displayed."

 

 

Recommended. Both for the info as well as for its presentation and design approach. 9/10
