Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is http://bundlr.com/b/content-curation-definition 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation http://huzzaz.com/collection/content-curation-what-is-it 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is www.pinterest.com/robingood/content-curation-visualized/ 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access http://contentcuration.zeef.com/ 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation http://bit.ly/ContentCurationToolsSupermap All free to use and share.

Digital Differentiation

Digital Differentiation | 21st Century Learning & Digital Footprints | Scoop.it

Technology is a tool that can be used to help teachers facilitate learning experiences that address the diverse learning needs of all students and help them develop 21st Century Skills. At it's most basic level, digital tools can be used to help students find, understand and use information. When combined with student-driven learning experiences fueled by Essential Questions offering flexible learning paths, it can be the ticket to success.

Brenda Nielsen's curator insight, July 20, 2015 1:39 PM

What a wonderful overview of Digital interactions with the instructor being the center of all of the different interactive rings. One that I would like to point out, is the blue ring on the left--this is so important when working with digital technology. The tech support needs to be onboard, readily available with support so that students do focus on the task and not the technology. Technology is the tool to assist students and is becoming more and more an integrated part of learning.

The yellow ring is yet another big leap away from even traditional classrooms using technology. The Front of the classroom DOES disappear and learning using digital means come from all sides of the classroom, encounters, and investigation. There is no front or back of the classroom anymore.

Should come in handy as I will be dipping my toes (finally!!) into screencasting this term. I like that it is advising on one tool that I have used a few times already (Audacity) and the another that I is already on my short list of screencasting software for this term.

App #10: Drop Manager for Dropbox

App #10: Drop Manager for Dropbox | 21st Century Learning & Digital Footprints | Scoop.it

"I have just discovered, downloaded and spent an hour on this app (iTunes link) called Drop Manager. This is a third-party Dropbox app. Since I am currently doing almost all my work without a PC and just on the iPad, I have not previously been able to manage my Dropbox files and sort them into folders. (I know that it can easily be done on any PC with a few mouse drags and clicks). Prior to discovering this app, however, a lot of my Dropbox files were not as organized as I would have wanted. Enter Drop Manager, yet another 99 cent app that will become very useful on the iPad and iPhone. This is a universal app, so you only need to purchase it once for all your devices."
