Seth Dixon's curator insight, December 5, 2013 1:50 PM

This is one of the reasons why I think online curation platforms like scoop.it are increasingly important.  And here the best quote from the article: "The problem is, you can look at the internet as a collection of random odds and ends that it is your job to curate—some of these things may be 'truer' than others, but what’s really important is whether you love or hate them enough to post them to the social website of your choice."  So  keep curating my friends.

Three Reasons Why Your Creative Work Needs An Audience :: Jeff Goins

Three Reasons Why Your Creative Work Needs An Audience :: Jeff Goins | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

"With access to tools and technology we’ve never had before, now is truly the best time to be creative. It’s also the best time for companies and organizations to take full advantage of creativity—as long as we never lose sight of these three principles in the process:

-Synthesis: Good creative work is about making connections, not just making points.
-Collaboration: Without the involvement of others, your work will likely suffer and probably won't spread very far.
-Empathy: Marketing is about building community, and all artistic output does demand an audience. But it takes the right person to serve that audience well—and to do that, you need to take the time to understand it."

How teachers are using technology to change the classroom

How teachers are using technology to change the classroom | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

"Just as constant internet connectivity has become part of our everyday lives, education has taken steps to connect students, teachers, parents, and administrators with the world through technology. It’s called blended learning, and in K-12, it involves both a connected and face-to-face experience."

This collection of 25 creativity tools is focused on business -however, with a little "creativity" of one's own, many can be applied in educational settings as well. Well worth a look. Numerous suggestions.
