Academic writing differs when compared to other forms of writing because it explains things that are quite different. Academic writing basically answers a given analogy or topic. You have to deliver these details on the basis of things other authors state and find common ground that answers the asked question or analogy using keen analysis, resource intelligence and reference. The way this is done also has to be very objective, focused and straight forward, contrary to the fillers you would use in a topic such as—this post! To effectively write academic content, there are some tools that are specially designed to optimize your abilities at it. Many of these are online tools you can use wherever you are.
The Essentials of Academic Writing
According to most academic writing experts and teachers, the University of Ottowa ‘Essentials of Academic Writing’ piece is one of the best online resources you will find as far as academic writing is concerned. It’s a clear breakdown in what you need to know as far as academic writing standards, expectations, time management, paper structure, references, resources and so much more. If you have your own guide, then well and good-but, this is one of the best guides out there today.

Technology integration can be one of the most challenging topics to find quality research on. The term itself is a broad umbrella for numerous practices that may have little in common with each other. In addition, technology tools change rapidly, and outcomes can vary depending on implementation.

In this series of five articles, learn about three key elements of successful technology integration, discover some of the possible learning outcomes, get our recommendations on specific practices and programs by academic subject and promising tools for additional topics, find tips for avoiding pitfalls when adopting new technologies, and dig into a comprehensive annotated bibliography with links to all the studies and reports cited in these pages.

Your right, a very interesting article I must say. The technology integration is important and does provide students to use their initiative while learning however there are both negative and positive sides on an individuals learning

I think this is an interesting article to include in IMC. Although not specifically a Brand or Marketing specific article it does provide an insight to the types of consumers marketers will be needing to engage in the future and therefore having an understanding of the styles of learning and development will definately aid marketers. As children are learning more about technology, and as the technology itself evolves marketers will need to continually work to upskill and stay in touch with new trends and adapt to the dynamic market which will be driven more by technology and social media. In Marketing Strategy we have just studied an article by Peter Senge on the "learning organisation" which discusses all kinds of changes in business structures and innovative and creative leadership. Business is already recognising the need for change and deeper understanding, so i think it is vital to try and discover what the next generation is learning aswell.
