20 Must-See Teaching Tools Coming To Your Classroom Very Soon | Edudemic | Language and Literacy in a Digital World | Scoop.it

It’s hard to find a field that hasn’t been radically changed by technology, and education is no exception. Few classrooms these days operate without digital tools, gadgets, or applications that have made it easier for teachers to track student progress and tailor lessons to student needs and interests.

 

While the tools of today are great, there are even more great technological teaching tools and practices on the horizon, many of which are just starting to be adopted in the classroom or are just making it out of the developmental stages. These tools offer new and often very promising ways to connect with students and improve the quality of education offered in schools.

Why Google+ Is a Ghost Town [Infographic]

Why Google+ Is a Ghost Town [Infographic] | Language and Literacy in a Digital World | Scoop.it

An infographic details that Google+ has low activity compared to other networks.

 

There’s a lot of conflicting data out there about Google+. A few studies over the past few months have portrayed the fledgling social network as relatively moribund, but another recent report from Experian Hitwise says visits to the network are growing substantially, hitting 34.9 million for the week ended Aug. 4 compared to 21.9 million visits for the week ended July 21 — a 59% jump in two weeks.

 

Whether the network is thriving or not, this research from Umpf, a UK-based social media firm, shows that activity on G+ is low compared to other social networks.
