Google is shutting down Google+ for consumers following security lapse | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Google announced today that it’s planning to shut down the consumer version of Google+ after users didn’t take to it and after the company left profile details open to developers.
GwynethJones's insight:

I had such hopes for this platform! Another sad goodbye - much like Wikispaces.  Sad face. But honestly, I never bonded with it like I did with Twitter and Instagram

How to make a 3 Shot Movie on iPads and Chromebooks

How to make a 3 Shot Movie on iPads and Chromebooks | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Recently I worked with a class who wanted to enter a local competition to win Basketball tickets for a big game. The challenge was to create a 30 second video about a ‘Noisey Class’ so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use the ‘3 Shot Movie’ technique.

I have used variations of this method but reducing the shots down to this simple 3 step method is a great way to introduce students to the art of film making, visual story-telling, and the mechanics of iMovie. I saw this demo’d at a recent GAFE conference by Jim Sill (an ex-producer and now Edtech trainer).

The 3 shot movie is basically;

     * the wide shot (distance)
     * the medium shot
     * the close up"

Social Media, Social Life: Teens Reveal Their Experiences (2018) | Common Sense Media

Social Media, Social Life: Teens Reveal Their Experiences (2018) | Common Sense Media | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Social media platforms are central to every aspect of teens' lives, from how they stay in touch with friends to how they engage with politics. And constantly refreshing their social feeds can feel simultaneously positive and negative: Teens say social media strengthens their relationships but also distracts them from in-person connection.

Social Media, Social Life: Teens Reveal Their Experiences sheds light on teens' changing social media habits and why some kids are more deeply affected by -- and connected to -- their digital worlds. The report is a nationally representative survey of more than 1,000 kids age 13 to 17. And because it tracks changes from 2012 to today, we can see how teens' social media use continues to evolve. Read the full report.
