Social Content Marketing is no longer an Option.


Our web traffic will live or die on how well we engage in social media. Google Plus and Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest and YouTube and LinkedIn and Yelp are all part of our social sphere of influence.

Those are pretty good numbers.  6 out of 10 people are not buying products because other people have shared them.  Who would have thought?

Can we really influence people? Should we just listen to what they have to say and tell stories and ways to help them?

This detailed tutorial from California State University - Chico provides students with an opporunity to learn how to:'

* Investigate - What does this mean? To choose a topic you must first identify your topic. This section walks you through this concept, providing examples as well as having the student make decisions about specific areas based on what has been presented.

* Search -  Searching the web provides a vast amount of information that is unfiltered...so learn how to do effective and efficient searching, using key words and phrases, as well as learning about databases, scholarlly articles, popular articles and more.

* Locate - Finding information in a library or online requires that you undersand the system used to locate it and how to cite the resource. 

* Evaluate - Evaluating requires that you use higher order thinking skills and determine which information is accurate. The tutorial introduces the CRAAP test as a tool students may use. Is the information Correct, Relevant, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose. Each "clue" is explored and you are given information to evaluate for each.

* Use - Learning how to put it together, taking the information you have learned it is time to communicate this to others. The form may vary but you still must be alert to issues such as plagiarism and the need to cite information. Again there are interactive components in the tutorial for students to practice with.

This is a great resource but it is written for the college level. It could be used with high school students and you might use sections with students in lower grades as a class tool.
