Useful ideas about creating a content calendar…something I am currently working on!
Last night’s #TChat and Tuesday night’s #TChat radio provided opportunities for us to look back at the “World of Work” in 2012 and make some predictions for what will be in 2013. Needless to say, SOCIAL was front and center.
One of the questions last night was particularly interesting to me, “How did technology and social media affect world of work trends of 2012?” I was so interested in what people thought that I went back this morning and curated some of the responses that were meaningful to me.

@CyndyTrivella Technology has helped to connect employees from different countries and opened up more diverse thinking. #Tchat
@VeronicaLudwig New ways of sourcing for talent. Keeping track of current employees. Stalking. Online stalking was huge this year… #Tchat
@tamcdonald The reach of connections is greater and faster than before. Leadership needs to show same trust as with phone and email. #TChat
If you have never joined #TChat, please do! It is one of the most interesting, vibrant conversations and community on the web. I know I am looking forward to connecting with more of the wonderful people in the #TChat community in 2013!

This is a great short video on the benefits of using a social media aggregator (such as Hootsuite) to manage social media(and the benefits from from doing so. Caveat…the video was produced by Hootsuite. There are other tools that can be used, too.
Marshall McLuhan was not speaking about the Internet or social media when he said, “The medium is the message.” Can you imagine what he would have to say if he were alive today (he passed away in 1980)? McLuhan spoke about the ability of technology and communication to create a “global village.”

Search, links, media sharing, social media, Wikipedia, games, open source etc. are ground breaking shifts in the way we learn, says Donald Clark. Unfortunately, they’re not matched by the way we teach. The growing gap between teaching practice and learning practice is acute and growing. Institutional teaching, especially in Universities is hanging on to the pedagogic fossil that is the lecture. The true driver for positive, pedagogic change is the internet.
