Technology Outlook > Australian Tertiary Education 2013-2018 | The New Media Consortium | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

The New Media Consortium and Open Universities Australia jointly released the Technology Outlook for Australian Tertiary Education 2013-2018: An NMC Horizon Project Regional Analysis. This report applies the process developed for the NMC Horizon Project, with a focus on identifying and describing emerging technologies likely to have an impact on teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in tertiary institutions across Australia. Twelve emerging technologies are recognized across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, as well as key trends and challenges expected to continue over the same period, giving campus leaders and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning. View the work that produced the report at www.aus.wiki.nmc.org.

How to use Natural Networking to connect with anyone — including the exact email scripts

How to use Natural Networking to connect with anyone — including the exact email scripts | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

How many of us have heard career experts telling us to “go out there and network”?

 

What does that actually mean? They never seem to specify.

 

So we end up going to 1 or 2 pointless networking events, which actually turn out to be a bunch of unemployed people looking for jobs, until we realize the pointlessness of random networking. We stop going. But we keep hearing about the importance of our network, and we hear about how most jobs are found through personal contacts. Pretty soon, it becomes clear to us that it’s WHO you know, not WHAT you know. But we have no idea how to actually turn that realization into something actionable.

 

There’s a game going on around us that we don’t even see.

 

And today, I want to show you exactly how to decode it — along with the specific email scripts to use. If you’ve been waiting for the real story on how networking actually works, this is it.

INTENT: EU university language colloboration (Robert O'Dowd)

View this presentation on the INTENT project and our European survey which was presented at the University of Limerick on 1 June 2012 by Robert O'Dowd.

 

Many primary and secondary schools around the world have benefited from networks such as etwinnning (http://www.etwinning.net) and ePals (http://www.epals.com/) to bring their learners into contact with partner classes using Web 2.0 communicative tools. This activity, often referred to as telecollaboration or Online Intecultural Exchange, is also practised at university level but practitioners often encounter many practical and administrative barriers, including difficulties in finding partners, misalignment of academic calendars, differing assessment procedures and divergent attitudes to ICT.

 

With this in mind, this presentation introduces our INTENT project (www.intent-project.eu) which is funded by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme.

Social Network Overload - Infographic

Social Network Overload - Infographic | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

How often have you checked your social media accounts today? Feeling unplugged is a problem for many people.  This infographic from mylife.com illustrates how people are addicted to social media, and what they rather do than give up their Internet lifeline. 

 

Two out of three people are afraid they’re missing something important on email, Facebook, Twitter, or other accounts. In the same survey, three out of five people wished there was a solution to monitor their various communication options.

This infographic is based on the survey by Harris, and conveys a growing trend—social media overload...

Christine Harris-Smyth's curator insight, April 2, 2013 8:37 PM

The anxiety about missing out is not something new - it is like a child who doesn't want to go to bed when the others (adults, older children) are still having fun. It is simply in a new arena. This being connected all the time to digital media and communications devices is the new thing - not the anxiety.

 

We'll learn to live with it - nice infographic.

How and Why Social Engineering Works [Infographic]

How and Why Social Engineering Works [Infographic] | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

For many people in today’s world, being “online” has become a constant status. High-speed internet, smart phones and tablet PC’s have enabled us to stay connected whenever and wherever we are.

Social hackers capitalize on vulnerabilities when it comes to keeping personal details private, and the problem has only seemed to get worse as the digital age has developed.

Techniques as simple as looking over a shoulder as someone enters bank details or passwords are often used, as well as sending out deceiving emails ridden with malware and viruses that can take control of your computer. Hackers pose as a trusted entity in email blasts that utilize mind tricks to get the viewer to click on the link that will trigger the infection of your computer.

Everyone with an internet connection is vulnerable, and public awareness is the first step in ending this growing 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. Other's use it to find old friends. Then there are those who use it to find people who have the same problems or interests they have, this is called niche networking.

10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC] | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Did you know that Twitter is grabbing more new registrations than Facebook, with more than half of its entire userbase compromised of people who have signed up in the last year, compared to just 19 percent for Mark Zuckerberg’s baby?

What if I said that almost a quarter (23 percent) of Facebook users check their account five or more times each day, Twitter users are 33 percent more likely to be Democrats or – sorry Foursquare – that 74 percent of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of ‘checking in’.

 

These, and several other amazing social media statistics, can be found in the infographic on social media statistics...
