Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, Oh My! 4 Tools for Picting in the Classroom - EdSurge News

We’ve all heard it before: “A picture is worth a thousand words.” That famous idiom (or is it a cliche?) first appeared in a 1911 newspaper and has been widely used since. In today’s society, however, the phrase has taken on a whole new meaning. Using images instead of text to convey ideas—known as “picting”—is becoming the norm among today’s digital-first students.

10 Strategies To Help Students Use Social Media For Critical Thinking - TeachThought via @kevmowat

10 Strategies To Help Students Use Social Media For Critical Thinking - TeachThought via @kevmowat | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it
Use of social media platforms like twitter, facebook, and instagram can walk a fine line, teetering back and forth between connectivity and narcissism.

More immediately for educators, it illuminates our need to create empathetic learning experiences that connect learners for deeply human purposes. The greater the dysfunction, the greater the need to belong.

So then, let’s take a look at 10 ways we can help children–students, in this case–use social media critically. Critical thinking begins with the self and extends out. Rather than fight things like ‘screen time,’ maybe we can help them use that time in more constructive ways grounded in critical thinking.

Using Google+ Is The Best Way To Boost Your Website's Search Ranking With Social

Using Google+ Is The Best Way To Boost Your Website's Search Ranking With Social | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it

Since Google introduced "Search Plus Your World," most Google Search users have seen results that add more emphasis to sites shared on Google+.


One search engine marketing firm, TastyPlacement  - http://bit.ly/KBn2qJ, took it upon themselves to conduct an unscientific-ish study to determine just how much of an effect Google+ promotion has on search ranking.

 

It turns out having Google+ followers boosts the ranking the most, while a "+1" still does way more for your search ranking than Facebook or Twitter.

 

Twitter actually ranks the lowest — which, given the bickering between Google and Twitter, isn't all that surprising either.

As an educator, it’s important to understand everything that shapes your students’ education, both inside and outside of the classroom. You’re trained to study lesson plans and develop learning strategies and abide by district-wide standards. But what about your own development as an educator? What rules exist to help you maintain your professional growth?

So if the students aren’t going to change to suit us (and after all, why should they?) we need to start changing the nature of the classroom and how we work within it, to exploit this ability to work across these parallel planes of digital and physical reality that our students inhabit.

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it

A lot of words have been added to the dictionary over the past few decades thanks to social media, but few have become so widely used and accepted as "hashtag."

 

For a long time, the hashtag symbol (#) was known simply as the "pound" symbol. Now, I could swear that the only time I hear it referred to as a pound symbol is when I enter my PIN number to pay my cell phone bill. While hashtags were originally made famous by Twitter, they're now used on many major social networks, including Facebook and Instagram.

Social media is everywhere. Even as adults, we are always glued to our phones and goings on featured there. Students today live and breathe with social media, so why not use it to engage them in the classroom? And we know a more engaged student will retain far more information than a bored one. So where do we start?
