I've embedded the video on two pages of my guide, Twitter for Teaching and Learning: http://libguides.georgefox.edu/twitter
Will share the video during an afternoon class today with graduate education students. Note: Twitter changes its interface often and though this video is only 3months old, some things may appear differently than the video demonstration. Also, the laptop/desktop vs. mobile device interfaces will vary. #twitter #teachingandlearning #professionaldevelopment
Shared this on Twitter a while back but want to place it here as well. It's important for many reasons and something those of us who work in #highered should probably be giving thought and attention.
The buzz, during most of the week past was based around a recently released research paper by Google on how Trustworthiness can be calculated on the web without the use of links: http://goo.gl/ULpFUw.
I have, of course, been talking about the ability Google to do this for some time now, detailing the steps you need to take for your business to capitalize on it.

"The challenge is this: Send an image to friends in your personal learning network and ask them to write a learning related blog post about it.

In the early days of programming, women dominated the field. This was in no small part because male engineers thought this “soft” work was relatively trivial compared to building actual machines such as ENIAC. And in the decades that followed, more and more women entered computing: by the mid-1980s, women made up more than 35 percent of computer science majors in U.S. colleges. Then began a falloff that persists to this day, with U.S. computer science majors being about 15 percent female.
