The Ideal Length for All Online Content

The Ideal Length for All Online Content | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Every so often when I’m tweeting or emailing, I’ll think: Should I really be writing so much?

 

I tend to get carried away. And for the times that I do, it sure would be nice to know if all this extra typing is hurting or helping my cause. I want to stand out on social media, but I want to do it in the right way.

 

Curious, I dug around and found some answers for the ideal lengths of tweets and titles and everything in between. Many of these could have been answered with “it depends,” but where’s the fun in that?

 

Solid research exists to show the value of writing, tweeting, and posting at certain lengths. We can learn a lot from scientific social media guidelines like these. Here’s the best of what I found.

Interesting. I have to disagree with blog length - 1600 words (about a 7-minute read) might be good for SEO, but it's a long time to expect readers to stay with you. Respect their time and keep it short

Why You Need This One Trait to Build a Successful Company Culture

Why You Need This One Trait to Build a Successful Company Culture | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

How would you describe a superpower in the workplace? Words such as “inspirational,” “influential” and “powerful” would come to mind, but you would rarely think of “empathetic.”

 

Empathy is a skill which is often overlooked in the workplace. Determined by Frans de Waal as the “social glue that holds human society together,” empathy refers to the awareness of one’s own and other people’s feelings, needs and concerns. Having the ability to be empathetic has been proven to prevent poor morale, misunderstandings and conflicts, consequently enabling a person to build significant and long-lasting relationships with others. Empathy therefore is the underrated key ingredient for both personal and professional success.


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Empathy is perhaps the single most important trait that goes into a successful company! The expression of empathy, eagerness to know more about how your employees feel, the ability to find time for employees are all things that make your company a great place to work in. Unfortunately, the culture of empathy is the most overlooked one because of the need to compete and produce results. We have become mechanical in our dealings with subordinates and even colleagues!

How Should School Districts Measure Ed Tech’s Return on Investment?

How Should School Districts Measure Ed Tech’s Return on Investment? | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

"In education, ROI (Return On Investment) is a big deal. Resources are finite, and whenever they’re spent those holding the purse strings want to know if the investment is justified. When it comes to new technologies and innovative approaches, ROI can be difficult to calculate; which can put edtech in an awkward position when it comes to justifying the expenditure."


Via EDTECH@UTRGV
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
We need to have a viable system for assessing Ed Tech's return on investment. For Ed Tech to be effective in schools, there should be a visible jump in learning and the quality of teaching needs to shoot up exponentially! One wonders if spending more on in-service teacher training and infrastructure might not be a better option, especially when Ed.Tech does not prove to be worth all that expense. One major downside to Ed.Tech. is that it becomes obsolete very quickly and then you enter into a vicious cycle of upgrades!

Justin Trudeau: Is the Canadian Prime Minister the Free World's Best Hope?

Justin Trudeau: Is the Canadian Prime Minister the Free World's Best Hope? | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Let's begin by synchronizing our watches. We are in the Eastern time zone.

The legislative session is over, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is about to give his wrap-up press conference. The reporters trudge into the gallery, grumbling, as reporters like to do, about traffic and editors. Someone gives the "10 seconds" signal, and Trudeau strides to the podium. He gives a nod and starts ticking off his accomplishments. The first is self-praise for cutting taxes on the middle class and raising them on the one percent. "We've given nine out of 10 families more money each month to help with the costs of raising their kids," Trudeau says.

Justin Trudeau introduced a bill that would make marijuana legal – but what will that look like, and what will it mean for the U.S.?
It's strange to witness: He speaks in a modulated, indoor voice. His dark hair is a color found in nature. At home, there is a glamorous wife and three photogenic children, still not old enough to warm his seat at next week's G-20 summit or be involved in an espionage scandal.

 

When Trudeau moves on to his feminist bona fides (women and minorities make up more than half of his Cabinet), he pauses for a moment, but does not lose his train of thought. His words are coherent and will not need to be run through Google Translate when he is done (except if you want to translate his French into English)....


Via Jeff Domansky
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
In Trudeau, we might have that elusive Icon, a figurehead that the common man can identify with. Leaders today are larger than life, lionised icons in their own rights who somehow seem to be demi-gods that are not approachable. The take away for future leaders and figureheads would be for them to be their authentic selves, without pretences, and they should be approachable. People connect with those who are like them, ordinary, down to Earth, and authentic selves. Those who are on pedestals will never connect fully with the masses!

A Gathering of Flowers: Content Curation History in Other Words

A Gathering of Flowers: Content Curation History in Other Words | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it
Most people believe content curation is a relatively recent, Internet-born trend, generated by the constantly increasing amount of unverified information available online.


The general belief is that “content curation” is a content marketing tactic, designed to provide value to the reader and to save time and writing effort to the author/publisher. Such curation, according to most articles you find online, consists of searching and gathering already published content on a specific topic and to organize it together into a reading list, an anthology or a compilation.
In reality, the key elements of an editorial curation practice (finding, gathering, organizing/arranging, value adding, sharing) have a long history and have been utilized by man since thousands of years, to preserve, organize, uncover and highlight valuable poetry, philosophical ideas as well as historical and artistic works.


Historically, the need for curating content, appears to have arisen as a solution to two key needs:
1) to preserve valuable work before it would disappear
2) to facilitate the discovery and appreciation of valuable literary works, for future generations....


Via Jeff Domansky
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Content curation is probably a new term for an exercise or a habit of grouping and collecting similar books, ideas, or any kind of intellectual content. People have printed anthologies of short stories, horror stories...etc. There have been T.V. series based on writings of great writers, like, for example, Alfred Hitchcock, or for that effect Edgar Allan Poe, or even Somerset Maugham.

Research according to the article suggests that laptops might be more of a distraction than a tool to augment learning. Grades drop as a result of social networking. Students are zoned out because of being constantly connected. We once blamed television for deteriorating concentration spans, laptops have reduced concentration spans even more. Let us not jump on to the bandwagon, let us research further whether we should really allow school students to bring their own devices to school.

Unlike more sales-oriented strategies, content marketing is a great way to educate existing and future customers about your industry in relevant ways. While eBooks and guides are useful long-form content marketing types, case studies are unique in the way they combine storytelling with providing information relevant to your business.

Via Daniel Watson

Case studies, project stories, and research narratives are great tools for marketing! However, we should not limit these tools to marketing. In fact, case studies, project stories and research narratives are very powerful and compelling tools in teaching. The moment you introduce narrative or story telling into your marketing pitch, or your topic for teaching, you kind of, grab the attention of wandering minds!

Work Flexibility Is No Longer Just A Corporate Issue

Work Flexibility Is No Longer Just A Corporate Issue | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Flexible jobs, or jobs that can be done remotely, are very common today. A recent Gallup survey found that 43% of American employees spend at least some time working remotely.

 

The nearly half of jobs that can be done remote is no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention, as technology has paved the way for workers to unplug or become location independent. It’s the same reason why millennials are keen to become digital nomads and travel while they work.

 

Employers benefit by having remote employees because their productivity spikes without distractions provided by an office environment. Further, a FlexJobs report found that 82% of millennials said they are more loyal to their employer if they have flexible work options.


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Work from home and Flexi-timings are some of the cliched terms that some of the more upcoming and progressive corporates are coming up with. The fact is that the typical ten to five shift might not, after all, be most productive timings. Schools too need to explore the concept of Flexi-timings in order to boost productivity. The ultimate goal of every corporate organization should be productivity, and as long as goals are being met, it should be OK if the employee works from home three or four times in a week.

Since our first reader in August of 2014, we’ve steadily increased our traffic, and we're now consistently drawing 5,000 plus readers per month to our blog. Our traffic is increasing at a growing rate, and we're optimistic about doubling or tripling our traffic in the upcoming year.


If you're a small company like ours — under 20 employees — you're probably wondering how we can consistently publish over 100 quality blog posts annually in addition to getting our “day jobs” done. The answer is in our process.

5 Leadership Mistakes Even the Best Bosses Make

If you think your boss is some freak of nature and you're the luckiest person alive, I'll break it to you gently: He or she is human and will make mistakes.

 

The great ones rise up from their errors by A) acknowledging they made a mistake and correcting a behavior (think humility), or B) acknowledging a blind spot that needs to be addressed, then doing something about it.

 

Lets dive into a few prevalent leadership mistakes that even the best and smartest leaders tend to make.

Sometimes even good leaders will miss out on important aspects of leadership.

Is Digital Equity the Civil Rights Issue of the Day? | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

"The civil rights movement has always been about ensuring that all people, regardless of race, sex, income, religion, or other factors, have equal access to opportunity.

The 12 Stages of Burnout, According to Psychologists

Tell someone 'I'm sick' or 'I'm tired' and you're not really giving them much information. How sick? How tired? Do you have a mild cold or a dread disease? Are you a new parent who hasn't slept in months or did you just enjoy the party last night a little too much?

 

Burnout is the same. It comes in different degrees, from your common 'I can't wait for happy hour' variety, to far more serious 'I need to take a six-month sabbatical and re-evaluate my life' burnout. The appropriate response for different stages is very different.

 

So how do you know how burnt out you are exactly? Science, apparently, can help. Recently 99U's Hamza Khan dug up a classic Scientific American article (subscription required) that describes a 12-stage model of burnout developed by psychologists Herbert Freudenberger and Gail North. Here are the stages the scientists outline:

As work pressure mounts and the need to compete with yourself and your partners becomes a reality, one is exposed to stress. Burnout is the result of your not being able to handle stress.

However some corporates will not keep their employees for a long time in any case, so it is expected that employees will leave long before burnout takes place.

Do you remember that executive who was such a natural? She never seemed stressed, always knew the right thing to say, delivered good results consistently. A born leader, right? Just had the right genes for leadership from the start.

My company’s research from multiple fields, as diverse as neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to form and reorganise synaptic connections, especially in response to learning experience or following injury) and musicology, shows that skills are not as innate as we naturally believe.

This Is The Key To Finding A Mentor At Every Stage Of Your Career

This Is The Key To Finding A Mentor At Every Stage Of Your Career | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

We get it, finding a mentor can be difficult and time-consuming. But when you do find one (or two), they can save you from making costly mistakes that can set you back in your career. Simply put, having a mentor will improve the quality of your decisions and provide opportunities that won’t be available to you otherwise.

 

There’s this idea that that mentors are older people with established careers and well-honed skill sets who provide guidance to younger mentees, but this isn’t always the case. The key to success is selecting the mentor who best suits your needs at any given stage of your career: entry level, middle management level, or executive level. If you’re an entrepreneur or creative person, you can think of these stages as early career, mid-career, and advanced career.

What sets most successful companies apart from others is having a healthy workplace culture and this includes having a sound work-life balance. Some organizations will outsource this will outsource a survey to a third party like for example checking out on "Good Place to Work" scores. However, it would be a good idea for team leaders to prepare a ready reckoner, a checklist to see if they have allowed for opportunities for healthy debates, or if they have ensured accessibility to employees. Celebrating success and acknowledging accomplishment, and coaching would be team leaders will go a long way in ensuring that the company maintains a healthy workplace culture!
