I am a member of LinkedIn. Due to my stage in Life near retirement the site might not be as useful as if I was an new graduate starting on my career. I think it provides opportunities for people starting out or in mid career. I have not been able to connect with many people professionally. It think my age and the fact that much of my experience is now outdated.
A high Altmetrics score is just an estimation of how wide is the impact of the article. It does not measure the quality of the article. A lot of Twitter mentions indicate that the article has had high impact in the public domain. However it must be understood that tweets from researchers who are unconnected to the paper will count for less than those from Scientists, editors etc connected with the paper. The mention scores have to be understood by Geographical breakdown and Demographic breakdown, i.e. Where the mention came from and who mentioned it.
I researched an Augmented Reality App called Quiver Masks. I was able to download an image of a mask from the free designs available print it out and colour it in. Then I used the App to photograph the coloured image and then switched the camera to myself and the mask image was neatly placed on my nose. Ingenious
The App that I use a lot is the GPS Google Maps whenever I don’t know where a place is located and how to get there, usually in the car. It provides the map of where the place is as well as directions both in written and audio format. You can place your mobile phone beside you in the car set your destination and the phone will give audio directions on how to get there whilst you are driving. Very cool
I chose Student Getting Started with OneNote. Showed how to set up a page and how to insert information into it using the toolbar e.g. text, graphics etc.
I found a Tumbir Blog on Crafts UK. Was not very interesting. Advertised upcoming events and seemed to concentrate on one thing ceramics and Clay making.
I found an interesting podcast from Mind Radio National Australia about Depression and the sense of self. Gave me useful information about how depression affects one’s sense of self. Something I had not considered before.
