Asking the right questions about BYODs! 

RESENTICE's curator insight, July 27, 2015 11:09 AM

Les bonnes questions à se poser avant d'acquérir des tablettes.

Un IPAD ou toute autre technologie de ce type demande un certain investissement financier. Avant de décider du choix d'un appareil spécifique à destination des élèves, il est nécessaire de prendre en considération vos objectifs pédagogiques à long-terme. Il sera alors temps de vous poser des questions sur l'utilité de ces équipements et si l'achat vous semble pertinent , il conviendra de réfléchir en amont aux usages que vous pourrez en faire dans un cadre pédagogique.

Stop Guessing: Here’s a Social Media Strategy That Works

Stop Guessing: Here’s a Social Media Strategy That Works | Technology | Scoop.it
Everyone makes it sound so easy. Post a few times on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, and the traffic will pour in.

In reality, it’s not easy. And like with anything else, you need to spend some time learning how to do it properly.

I assure you it’s possible. My nutrition blog case study received over 9,000 visits from Facebook alone last month, despite being a new blog.

But as I noted in that second-month update, it could be doing even better. My friend Mike, who is running the site, is a really smart guy, but it’s still taking him some time to really understand how to use social media to its fullest potential. 

You should care about social media traffic because it is one of the biggest referrers of traffic at your disposal. In early 2015, social media traffic made up 31% of overall traffic.

Pinterest doubles down on making money, rolls out video ads

Pinterest doubles down on making money, rolls out video ads | Technology | Scoop.it
Pinterest may be a popular service with an estimated 47.1 million monthly users, but profitable? Not so much.

To help change that, the social network expanded its ad products on Tuesday by rolling out video ads called Cinematic Pins.

 

Cinematic Pins work similarly to Pinterest’s current ad products, Promoted Pins, in that they’re formatted to blend in with other items in your home feed — except for the fact they're motion-based.

 

Gap, L’Oreal, Target, Unilever, Visa, Walgreens and Wendy’s are among the first crop of paid advertisers.

Santiaga Rodriguez 's curator insight, May 12, 2015 9:30 PM

You want to make the most of your Pinterest account. To do this you need to understand what content is going to get you the most traffic to your page. Here, you can see how to analyze your Pinterest page. 

By generating like and shares as well as follows, you can see at face value how you are doing, which is why getting as many as possible is important! You want a pin to be continuously shared from one person to another. Setting your page up initially as a business account is also beneficial, you want your purpose to be noted. 

Pinterest created a page that allows you to view your stats from said page, from number of views to shares as well as daily impressions. 

This is a great tool to better your page because it can show you upfront where you need to improve. 

Another important factor is how users are viewing your page ( iphone/android/tablets/web) this can help in what photos you are choosing, and even how your content is organized. 

This article is great in explaining how to analyze your page. It is especially relevant to using Pinterest for business because any successful business needs "users" as well as be able to improve to keep people coming to them.

Curation Is Not About Ownership: It's About Change

Robin Good's curator insight, May 11, 2015 12:37 PM



"Curation is not about ownership. It’s not about proprietary rights to whatever environment or resource or experience you create. 


The job of a curator, Paolo Antonelli reminds me, is not to take and possess but to show and educate. 


The job of a curator is to make ideas accessible to as many people as possible.


Because creativity is about more than copyrights and patents. It’s about inspiring people to make something, be something, think something, do something – to change themselves so that we just might change the world."
