1. Scoop-it:

Easily Publish Gorgeous Magazines. Leverage Curation to increase your visibility. Give persistence to your social media presence. Here is mine, I follow 77+ topics. I even have a Scoop-ip I made, Technology in the Classroom, 1:1 Laptops & iPads and more “iPad & Laptops in schools”.

But where I find it most valuable is following topics.

I have the scoop-it web clipper on my toolbar, admittedly, when I first began with Scoop-it I did not use it like it is intended. I was already pretty embedded using Pinterest, and Diigo for keeping track of websites. But, I find things and learn things from the topics I follow. And now I have linked my Scoop-it with my Twitter and Facebook and my Technology Bits, Bytes, & Nibbles blog. So, I am really loving how it automatically posts. Take a look, do a little searching and "curating" of topics yourself. Then write your reflection about what you discovered and discuss the usefulness of this type of tool. By the way, this in not the only tool like this, just seems to be the one most educators use.

Title: Day 10 Reflection: Scoop-it = 25 points

2. A series of Tools to check out.

  • This one is a wiki, in fact Wikispaces, same as this course site. Web 2.0 Cool Tools for Schools. There is a ton here, so dive deep. This wiki had been nominated for the Best Wiki award and son several years in a row.
  • Before you dig in to deep, click on the last link in the list, Tools Index for this site A-Z.
  • I think you will be surprised at the length of this list. For your reflection, find 3 tools, you did not know about already and that your think will be useful to you in your teaching and classroom.
  • Your post should contain, a screen capture form the original tools website, the complete URL, a description of what the tool is and of course your reflection about why you love it and think it will be useful and how you see yourself using it.
  • And.......create an small example/sample using the tool.
  • The sample should also be included in your reflection. Each tool should be a new reflection with its own title.
  • Day 10 Reflection: Name of the tool = 25 points
