I HAVE STARTED asking our 7yo questions arising from Febooary, the annual audio challenge.  I learn a lot through the feedback of other people who use my phone, especially from young Mia (below) who is well able to tap around and voice her thoughts.
The TLDR version is "ensure everything published by Toca Boca is on every handset in the home.
I have taught social media since 2006 when our Clonmel cohort represented 30 of the first 150 Irish on Twitter. Every semester I try to amp up our results and this year our focus should result in a playbook others might enjoy using.
I started the programme by reviewing dozens of eureka moments, beginner's mistakes and shortcuts shared by 45 strength and conditioning students who shared their observations on a co-authored slide deck. Another of their co-authored presentations appears below.
I HOOKED UP with a dozen friends a few days ago, some 42 years since I last saw them. Several of them have no social networking profiles and it interested me to see how everyone discovered something announced on Facebook.
I THINK THERE'S a strong surge of athletes, coaches and fitness fanatics using social media. I believe it's natural to add content through easy channels like Instagram and Tumblr so I set up several assessment methods to measure the reach of content shared via these methods.
I'd like to follow you if you're sharing data from your wearables or tracking progress along an activity grid. I'm learning a lot by trying to keep up with 50 very fit athletes on the social media module in the Sport Strength & Conditioning degree in the Limerick Institute of Technolgy.
A SERIES OF SPECIAL events, sponsored by the Limerick School of Art & Design (LSAD) Media Desk, have generated enthusiasm about the creative multimedia programme in Clonmel. In April, a group of social media, public relations, games development and applied communications students will commission a website that articulates the #LSADmedia brand.
The Clonmel campus of LSAD is the centre point of this initiative. The campus hosts first year social media students, third year public relations students and fourth year applied communications students. A fourth cohort of software developers on the Thurles campus of the Limerick Institute of Technology is also contributing to the planning and execution of #LSADmedia strategy.
During the final week of March 2014, #LSADmedia puts a special emphasis on social marketing concepts arising through Marketing Over Coffee, including:
THE FIRST WUNDERING MOLESKINE took its very first turn and shared its adventure via a social beacon that ended up on a Google Map. This means a community-based project proved we can connect the creative art of primary school students to a global mesh of social networking.
I PLAN TO REWARM the topic of misogyny in a social media module I teach, hoping to discover techniques that work for creative college students. I have a family reason that motivates me.
I want to ensure my six year old daughter can handle the anxiety that bubbles alongside the social media streams many women navigate in their lives. It seems grossly unfair to have women expect to encounter raging misogyny as part of their online lives. And it's excepti0nally troubling when their complaints are easily dismissed by law enforcement agencies.
Amanda Hess writes a compelling piece for the Pacific Standard, laying out a chronology of abuse she has encountered online. She isn't the first to raise the issue in a prominent way and I know others will have similar stories to tell this year and next. Perhaps by spotlighting the issue on a third level social media module, I can squelch some of the undesireable behaviour before it ramps up in the workplace.
