How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

 

Here are some of the specific ways educators are using Twitter to collaborate:

Twitter provides a great opportunity to collaborate with educators outside of your local physical community. The exchange of ideas and perspectives can reenergize your career. “Twitter is often just the introduction — the virtual handshake that opens the door to a deeper collaboration”

Les résultats du questionnaire permettent de relever les apports éducatifs de l'outil et de faire ressortir les principales activités réalisées avec les élèves.

We Need Social Producers: Catalysts for Conversations, Info & ROI

We Need Social Producers: Catalysts for Conversations, Info & ROI | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

This wonderful piece was written by Brian Solis and as always, he captured the essence of what's needed to move your content to the next level, where your audience becomes an active participant. This is where relationships and communities are built, brand advocates, word of mouth and commerce follows if this is done right.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Social Producers are the new storytellers

 

**To thrive in social, mobile and new media in general, we need much more than content producers, we need a new breed of designers that grasp the elements of online sharing and have mastered the ART of social media

 

**They know how to  trigger desirable (and social) actions, reactions and transactions

 

**A new genre of social producers are taking aim at developing content strategies that are not only consumable, they're shareable, actionable and act as catalysts or sparks for relevant conversations.

 

**These social producers are in fact masters of their domains and understand the culture and the laws of information commerce within each

 

The difference between Social Producers and traditional content creators is they begin with social outcomes

 

**they understand the relationship between cause and effect and they bake-in conversation starters related to an integrated and business-focused strategy

 

**Social producers think about the overall experience and the effect where a social object is at the center of the dialog and interaction they envision....within each network

 

**The overall story and outcome defines the nature of the social object.

 

Takeaway

 

**Beyond shareability, the social producers also think about resonance. Conversations on social networks move quickly.

 

**What was trending an hour ago gives way to  the next social object that captures everyone's attention until that too is replaced by the next shiny object and so on.

 

**Resonance is a technique that allows a social object to enjoy a greater lifespan and continue to swim upstream while other content strategies wash away in real-time.

 

**As you think about your content strategy for social networks, do so from the perspective of a social producer.

 

**While the social effect is certainly a goal, the social effect is also the result of social design.

 

**In the end, people are going to talk, so give them something to talk about!

Marty, I loved your insights and comments, right on the money - this is indeed one of those articles that ignites that spark in me and I can see in you as well - taking static content and moving it to the next level. Thank you for your kind words and wisdom as well.
Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, September 25, 2012 12:05 PM
Thanks Jan. I think your notes are more valuable than the article and this is NOT the first time that has been true :). Certainly the article by itself isn't as powerful as article + your note, so the very definition of the benefit of content curation - content becomes more valuable with each touch :). M

Facebook scores points in Europe after disabling facial recognition

Facebook scores points in Europe after disabling facial recognition | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

The move to disable facial recognition tagging in Europe has scored the social network some much-needed points in an official audit. 

 

Facebook has finally satisfied the European Union by disabling facial recognition tagging.


Facebook, which was subjected to an audit by Ireland's Data Protection Commissioner (DPC), was under pressure to implement a variety of changes in Europe, mostly dealing with privacy and security issues.

Last December, Facebook had promised to make the changes outlined in the audit document in order to comply with European regulations.
