Cloud Computing: Fact or Fiction? — Infographic

Cloud Computing: Fact or Fiction?

It’s a very common term today: “The Cloud”.  If you are anywhere near a mobile device or computer, you have more likely than not heard of this mysterious entity known as the Cloud, but do you really know what it is and what it does?  As more and more businesses, schools, and individuals are moving their data off-site to aid in accessibility, we are using this cloud more and more.  Today’s infographic helps to clear up some common misconceptions and gives an excellent overview of just what cloud computing is, how safe it is, and the trends for its continued growth.

How Has the Internet Changed Education? – Infographic

How Has the Internet Changed Education?

We can’t live our lives today without the Internet, that’s becoming very apparent.  In fact, I would wager to say that on any given day, each of you is carrying the Internet in your pocket in the form of a smartphone or some kind of tablet.  That is why I am such a strong proponent of integrating technology and Internet skills into our school curriculum.  If our students have these technologies and resources, it’s vital that they use this power for good and be taught its benefit in education as well as its proper use.

Today’s infographic helps to illustrate the magnitude to which the Internet has affected and influences education and therefore why it is vital to continue utilizing these tools in education. [VIA]

A History of Social Media – Infographic

History of Social Media

If you think that social media started with Facebook and Twitter (or even MySpace, remember that?) then you don’t know the half of it!!  Both of today’s social media giants are relative newcomers to the game.  From Arpanet in 1969 to billions of mobile users today, social media is constantly changing and evolving and doesn’t seem to be slowing down at all.  Today’s infographic was designed by Karim Benyagoub (@karim_designs) for Cendrine Marrouat and originally published on Creative Ramblings.  If you’d like to chat about it, I have my original ICQ number around here somewhere! 🙂

The History of the Internet – Infographic

The History of the Internet

From Arpanet and the first virus to today’s social networks with over 2.4 billion people connected, the Internet has lived a full, albeit so far short life.  It’s truly amazing how much this technology has become integral to our daily lives, considering that only a little over 20 years ago, the World Wide Web as we know it didn’t even exist!!
