In light of our monday discussion about the open online education. I found this which has to do with social media entering schools and helping kids.

nice find! Very interesting facts. It’s crazy to think that younger kids are using facebook and other social media sites.. I think I was playing with my giga-pet at that age? maybe watering my chia-pet?

Yay for Facebook, haha! But really, this is totally interesting! It’s interesting that people can put in an infograph the future, almost. The fact that they take info that they gathered to help people more understand it, is good for those like me who don’t enjoy reading black and white, blah blah blah.

I love that social media is making its way into schools, but hate that it is happening after i graduated. The year after I graduated, all of the classrooms had smart-boards installed, and most grades received laptops to interact with. It’s cool that schools are realizing that a person can be taught the same information much easier when it is taught with technology.

This is really cool. I like that people are looking at how best to reach kids now, rather than rely on old methods, and get mad when they don’t work. One of my professors was totally into the digital textbooks thing and encouraged ‘sharing’ among his students to cut down on the price.

Pay special attention to the part about schools and employers looking at your profiles as they consider your applications. Remember those drunk, provocative pictures with your tongue hanging out, or those off the wall rants may come back to haunt you someday. Once something is posted, it is in cyber land FOREVER. You may think you removed it, but you have no idea who else may have linked to it or copied it. This is SO important.
