Today I watched two videos that are truly mind blowing.
The first was Social Media Revolution 2011 which shares some of the social media statistics from 2011.
Facebook were a country, it would be the 3rd largest in the world! Also, a new member joins LinkedIn every second. These statistics are an eye opener as to how main stream social media has become and what a huge role it plays in peoples lives.
The second video I watched was Shift Happens. It's quirky title does it justice!
What I liked about this video is that it focuses on how the world is constantly changing. For example, the top 10 most popular jobs in 2010 did not even exist in 2004. If that will always be the case, as teachers, we're preparing students for jobs that don't even exist yet! It also has some statistics that are specifically focused on certain countries that were actually quite shocking.
I don't know about you but I learned a few things today. Who knew you could learn so much in under 6 minutes from watching 2 videos!
