Diferencias entre red social (Facebook) y red de contenido (Twitter) Nunca antes habíamos podido comparar el dinamismo de absolutamente ningún ciclo histórico, con el constante movimiento que se produce en el universo… nunca antes de la red claro está. Internet y el tránsito por sus distintas etapas nos lleva a un replanteamiento permanente de nuestra existencia, que nos permite darnos cuenta del tipo de seres humanos, también sociales, también 2.0, en el que nos estamos transformando. Las marcas, las empresas, los negocios, son parte activa y esencial de ésta nueva civilización que conformamos los que transitamos por los negocios online, tanto es así que es la primera vez en la historia del marketing y la publicidad, que las empresas tienen acceso a cantidades ilimitadas de clientes potenciales… obviamente no quieren mantenerse al margen de las oportunidades que subyacen tras un modelo de negocios con tanto potencial. La disyuntiva Facebook vs. ¿Cuál de las dos redes sociales es más efectiva para acceder al público objetivo?

The Times - Word Nerd ‘Word Nerd’ tests the distinctiveness of the words you use on Twitter. It works by scanning your last 100 tweets, and comparing the words you have used with those stored in Google’s immense NGram¹ database - a collection of several hundreds of thousands of words Google has gathered from its Books project. Foreign words, non-words (like ‘Lolz!’), and ‘stop words’ - words like ‘the’ and ‘and’ that are used so frequently by everyone as to be irrelevant - are first removed from the list. A custom algorithm then calculates the distinctiveness of the words you’ve used by examining how frequently each appears across the books from which Google’s NGram database is derived. You are given an ‘overall score’ based on the distinctiveness of each individual word in your tweets, and ranked in one of four ‘performance quartiles’. There's a more complete explanation of how it works here. We’d love to hear what you think of Word nerd - especially how we could make it better.

Creating an Alternative Education PLN This past week I attended the Iowa Association of Alternative Education's annual state conference. Like every conference, a lot of information was presented and it is the job of all attendees to sort through the information to decide what is useful. David Warlick (@dwarlick on Twitter) described 21st century literacy as a process that involves more than reading and writing--it is the process of asking questions and sorting through vast amounts of information. As a teacher, I am constantly bombarded with information, but the most valuable information doesn't come from websites, textbooks, or news stories; it comes from my colleagues! Because there is so much value in networking with other alternative educators, our conference planned for one room to be dedicated to the sharing of ideas in a roundtable format. But how do I get my colleagues to learn about the power of Twitter? PLN Resources for Alternative Educators Hashtags for Alternative Educators on Twitter: Need help? Blogs 1. 2.

366-días (escribiré solo 366 entradas) Twitter can improve student performance, study says Twitter can play role in higher attainment and better engagement, study finds. Sarah Cunnane reports The sight of students fiddling with their mobile phones and laptops as they tweet their way through lectures is enough to drive many academics up the wall. But according to a study at Lock Haven University in the US, tweeting could be used to improve academic performance. Rey Junco, associate professor in the department of academic development and counselling, assessed the impact of using Twitter as a teaching tool on students taking a pre-health course at the institution, which is a member of the Pennsylvania state system. Separating the students into two groups, he asked one to use the social-networking site Ning to communicate with lecturers while the other used Twitter. Professor Junco, who co-authored the paper with two colleagues, admitted that the exercise had required significant commitment on the part of academics as well as students. sarah.cunnane@tsleducation.com
