Could be worth investigating this tool for e-portefolio

Lisa Cooper's curator insight, July 16, 2013 12:33 PM

This looks like a great way for my students to find information about careers that are of interest to them.

Tamra Dollar's curator insight, July 19, 2013 2:35 PM

I also like that the ePortfolio can follow the student and allows each teacher to see prior work writing samples to get an authentic look at where the student is performing. It is a built in "needs assessment!"

A new study finds there is a significant disconnect between what kids do online and what their parents think they do. Is this just a new flavor of an old problem? Or is something else going on?

I’m both in awe and encouraged at the current trend of teacher-led professional learning occurring across our country. Our nations’ teachers are taking control of their own learning and are using a wide variety of social media platforms to do so.

The Curator Job Is To Unpack Specialized Information To An Interested Audience

As the director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Thomas P. Campbell thinks deeply about curating—not just selecting art objects, but placing them in a setting where the public can learn their stories.

Nancy White's curator insight, May 31, 2013 12:50 PM

Many good ideas can be found here regarding what we need to teach students about curating digital content for learning.  The importance of story - and to really look at something (or read it!).  The importance of asking quesitons and seeking answers before adding it to your curated collection to determine if it is a good fit. There are many parallels to the world of digital curation.

How might efforts to curate benefit from the portability and ubiquity of mobile devices? Tools like Evernote and GoodReads allow for easy and valuable curation. But the harder questions are pedagogical and curricular.

Er staan een aantal links in die het vragen om even bekeken te worden.

Toch weer jammer dat Microsoft Office's onderdeel OneNote niet genoemd wordt. Daar de office pakketten op vrijwel alle pc's van jongeren staan vormt dit een zeer goed (gratis) alternatief voor Evernote.

"Compared with how academic research was carried out in the pre-internet era, It seems like technology is really a godsend gift to researchers. From easy and unlimited access to journal articles to web tools that do the referencing and auto-syncing, everything has been digitized making it way easier for todays researchers to add to the body of the human knowledge than any time in history."
