RebelMouse was born to build a social media hub, but it does have strong aggregation, filtering and curation capabilities. SEO-wise it is not a great choice, but also Scoop.it has quite a few limits on this front. <br><br>Rebelmouse doesn't offer all of the extras Scoop.it has, from scheduling, to sharing to an extended number of social networks, to integration with newsletter and to the backend dashboard. <br><br>Scoop.it has also a better, cleaner and more legible format, that better lends itself to more in-depth reading than just browsing titles, images and tweets.

While I still use RebelMouse I have disconnected all inbound links because it posts it wacky and I was always having to go back and edit stuff. Now that I post stuff manually with their applet it isn't so bad. I still prefer Scoop.it though.

I use Rebelmouse for a while now, and I like it as a complementary tool to other Social Media tools. You can have a look at it on https://www.rebelmouse.com/Terheck/

"The Power of Networks" + The Importance of Polymaths - Beautifully Visualized by RSA

"The Power of Networks" + The Importance of Polymaths - Beautifully Visualized by RSA | Complexity Thinking | Scoop.it

Manuel Lima maps the "Power of Networks" in another beautiful RSA visualization.

 

Our brain is like a symphony played by hundreds of thousands of instruments.

 

Lima suggests, "Is there a universal structure?" I love that he talks about the importance of polymaths, "It's not enough to be a specialist in one area. At least create outbound ties, so that you are able to learn from other disparate areas."

 

This is the most beautiful aspect of knowledge--by looking at this 'network thinking.' 

 

It's more important that we actually make that mental shift. There are immense benefits that can come from that network outlook of the world itself.

Ken Wilber - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kenneth Earl "Ken" Wilber II (born January 31, 1949, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) is an American neoplatonic[1] writer and public speaker. He has written and lectured about mysticism, philosophy, ecology, and developmental psychology. His work formulates what he calls Integral Theory.[2] In 1998 he founded the Integral Institute.[3]

Wilber was born in 1949 in Oklahoma City. In 1967 he enrolled as a pre-med student at Duke University.[4] He became inspired, like many of his generation, by Eastern literature, particularly the Tao Te Ching. He left Duke and enrolled in the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, completing a bachelor's degree in chemistry and biology and a master's degree in biochemistry.[5]

In 1973 Wilber completed his first book, The Spectrum of Consciousness,[6] in which he sought to integrate knowledge from disparate fields. After rejections by more than twenty publishers it was finally accepted in 1977 by Quest Books, and he spent a year giving lectures and workshops before going back to writing. He also helped to launch the journal ReVision in 1978.

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories | Complexity Thinking | Scoop.it
Do you know the actual theories of learning? A learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn, helping us understand this inherently complex process.

Via Leonardo Ornellas, Dennis T OConnor
Tim Hopper's insight:

Like this quote.  "Learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn." It is complex because it is emergent and defies being reduced to simple components, but we must keep trying to understand it.  "The journey is the destinaton" as an Eastern philospher once said.

Alan Ovens's comment, January 17, 2013 2:21 AM
Great diagram. We just need to always keep in mind that theories of learning are not theories of teaching. Always "mind the gap" as a voice once said to me as I sat on a train in London.
