Why does one post on your blog get noticed and not another? Can you predict which ones get noticed? I have never been able to answer either of those questions with any sort of accuracy! Good thing I write this blog for fun and information–not to mention that now I can usually find things a lot easier since I have digitally documented it.
Anyway, social media is an area that can have a great effect on education. The kids use it non-stop. More and more teachers are getting the hang of it (although I wish the numbers would increase). How can it have an effect? The amount of information available through social media is staggering! In addition, social media requires more critical thinking skills than ever before. Who do you believe? Who do you agree with? Who advances the best argument? Who publishes the best content?
In addition to providing a great look at the effect of social media, these two infographics also show the evolution of an infographic. InfographicWorld originally put out “The Social Media Effect.” Later, it published “The Revised Social Media Effect.” Take a look at both of them to see how social media affects your posted content and the content of others.
