A new lifeline for Zambia’s favourite radio show Happy with the Lifeplayer Interactive radio instruction is a popular way to reach those with no access to formal schooling, and thus in the Petauke District of Eastern Zambia, the recent introduction of two new radio models has boosted the popularity of the educational radio programme Learning At Taonga Market (LATM). Launched in 2000, the project was originally aimed at orphans in the AIDS-ravaged countryside; however, over the years, thousands of radio units have been donated by local and international benefactors, thus enabling the project to go national. With two new radio models now in use, LATM has started a new chapter.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has traditionally been applied to desktop searches and websites. However, booming smart phone sales have led to “mobile search” being more than half of local search traffic today! What not everybody realizes is that Google provides different search engine results for mobile devices. Your website may be enjoying a solid ranking on Google’s desktop web search, but might not be found at all searching the same keywords on a mobile device. On top of that, small phone screen sizes make it difficult to explore results beyond the top ranks. As a result, it has become essential to optimize your mobile search presence to make the most out of online business opportunities! Mobile SEO Strategies
Google+ Welcomes Teens Aiming to hit Facebook in a vulnerable spot, Google on Thursday opened Google+ to teens — and added security enhancements designed to help secure their privacy. In a post explaining the move, Bradley Horowitz, vice president of product at Google+, doesn't mention Facebook by name, but dubs current social media sharing "second-rate." "In life, for instance, teens can share the right things with just the right people (like classmates, parents or close ties). Over time, the nuance and richness of selective sharing even promotes authenticity and accountability," Horowitz wrote. "Sadly, today’s most popular online tools are rigid and brittle by comparison, so teens end up over-sharing with all of their so-called 'friends.'" Google, which had previously barred consumers under 18 from joining Google+, is attempting to avoid such a situation on its network via a series of enhancement aimed at protecting people on the network aged 13-17.
How Do College Students Actually Use Cell Phones? [Infographic]
Culture Teaching Strategies Dave Herholz You can learn anything you want on the Internet, so the adage goes. But even if that’s true, even if it’s now easier than ever to learn about almost any subject online, there are still very few opportunities to gain formal recognition — “credit,” if you will — for informal learning done online. In September, the Mozilla Foundation launched its Open Badges Project, an effort to develop a technology framework that would make it easier to build, display and share digital learning badges. These badges are meant to showcase and recognize all kinds of skills and competencies — subject matter expertise as college degrees are meant to indicate for example, as well “soft skills” that aren’t so easily apparent based on traditional forms of credentialing. Will Informal Learning Carry the Same Weight as College Degrees?
