Why Scoopit Rocks II [Pictures] ScentTrail Marketing

Why Scoopit Rocks II [Pictures] ScentTrail Marketing | Chromebooks in K12 Education | Scoop.it

"Blogging is still important, but Scoop.it should be the hub of your social activities." writes Marty Smith in this very complete review of Scoop.it.

Marty's feedback is very interesting as you can take it as an experiment:

- What is the long-term effect of running social media from Scoop,it?

- How should you position this vs your blogging activities?

- How can the social features of Scoop.it help you create your community of interest?

Marty has been one of our early beta testers and a long-time blogger who built a strong social media expertise. His feedback after 18+ months on Scoop.it is precious and unique, especially if you're still hesitating about making Scoop.it the hub of your social media presence.

EdTechSandyK's curator insight, January 24, 2013 1:48 PM

"However, my colleagues at EdTechTeacher and I think that rather than asking which device should my school use,  the more poignant question may be ‘what do I want my students to do?’ or w’hich tool will best support my students learning needs?’ In this push to pick a platform and enter into a committed relationship, teachers, administrators, and even school boards have focused on the single device instead of ‘why do you want a mobile device in the first place?"

Michael Morrison's comment, May 12, 2013 4:18 PM
I agree that we should be analyzing what the students can do but realize for the most part both of these devices can do a lot of the same things with perhaps different software. The two biggest differences I see physically are the rear facing camera in the ipad and the keyboard on the chromebook. The Chromebook multi user experience is better. The other large factor is TCO.
