How to simplify your design - UX Planet - 0 views

  •  
    "Companies are in constant pursuit of building simple and usable products. More features, new technologies, and advanced capabilities but still in a lightweight and simple to use format. More often than not, making it simple is the hardest thing there can be."

Generation-C gives rise to the Age of Assistance - 0 views

  •  
    "Truth is that they're not the sole culprit. Consumerism as a whole is evolving and many businesses are not upgrading or updating value propositions, processes or products. Beyond Millennials, Centennials or any age demographic for that matter, the consumer every brand needs to pay attention to the group I call "Generation-C." This ever-growing group of connected consumers interacts with brands differently and has a rising expectation for on-demand assistance. As Google puts it, these highly-connected, mobile-first consumers are giving rise to "the age of assistance.""

The Language Barrier Is About to Fall - 0 views

  •  
    "Machine translation is leaps and bounds faster and more effective than my old dictionary method, but it still falls short in accuracy, functionality and delivery. That won't be the case for long. A decade from now, I would predict, everyone reading this article will be able to converse in dozens of foreign languages, eliminating the very concept of a language barrier."

The Most Important Thing on the Internet Is the Screenshot - 0 views

  •  
    "Screenshots never used to be that powerful. Sharing one was largely reserved for epic videogame wins or error messages. But now people routinely take screenshots of funny/outrageous comments on social media to share with friends. Twitter users post grabs of things they're reading. College students take notes by screenshotting articles and books on their phones, tablets, and laptops."

The Psychology of Social Media - 0 views

Psychologist Sherry Turkle, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the author of "Alone, Together: Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other," explains what keeps us tangled up in tech."

Essay on how one college responded to anonymous offensive postings on Yik Yak @insidehi... - 0 views

  •  
    This year, Yik Yak is the app du jour; racist, sexist, and homophobic comments posted on Yik Yak have led to student protests on some campuses, and attempts by administrators to block access to the site on others. But Yik Yak is not the problem; in fact, I am confident that the hype over this particular app will soon die down, and it will be replaced by some new, more exciting tool. The problem lies in a culture that accepts - indeed embraces - the act of broadcasting, behind a protective mask of anonymity, statements that most would find offensive.

Adapting eLearning for Mobile: Learning from Wonderful Mistakes - 0 views

  •  
    For many companies such a project is their first small step in providing learning content for mobile (mLearning). Once again my recommendation is to resist this approach if you can. Pushing content that was designed for a desktop or laptop onto a small screen is not the best way to go about learning design.

UD study tracks, analyzes political behavior on mobile devices - 0 views

  •  
    ""These devices have become such an entrenched part of our lives that who can really accurately gauge their own media use?" said Hoffman, associate professor of communication. "Scholars have surveyed people about how and why they use media, but that use is very fluid. It's so interspersed with other daily activities that most people would find it difficult to say exactly how many minutes they spend on particular kinds of websites.""

Area school districts debate cellphone policies - 0 views

  •  
    In Pennsylvania, the issue is primarily addressed at the local level with districts setting policy. For the most part, the use of such devices is banned during the school day. Some districts ban possession of such devices altogether while others allow students to bring them to school as long as they remain out of sight during the regular school day. Steel Valley School District officials are examining a policy already on the books that allows students to bring devices to school but requires the devices be turned over to school officials. A district committee recently discussed allowing students in secondary grades to stow their devices in their lockers rather than check them in each morning.

Understanding Facebook's Lost Generation of Teens - 0 views

    ""I mean, man, it's like not real life. Not. Real. Life. Why would you be on there when there's this," he gestured, with his chin, to everything around him, the bottleneck of teens, grouping off, chattering. Then he looked over at a small pack of guys dressed a little like him, ambling towards us. "Those are my boys," he said, then offered me his hand to shake. "Hope this helps," he said, adding, at the last moment, "Obviously, like, Facebook is not cool.""

Punishing Students for Gadget Use Will Make Their Tech Etiquette Worse - 0 views

  •  
    "When schools treat tech products in a similar way to alcohol, drugs, or weapons, tech companies should be concerned. This categorization signals to students that technology itself is dangerous and simply using it makes a person threatening."
