Handig app om dingen die je op het web tegenkomt van aantekeningen te voorzien en te bewaren.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, October 20, 2013 7:54 PM

I haven't read this article but I'm seriously interested in the question implied in the title.....i.e. how to 'mark up' information and get them on the web.  In many cases, I think that's adequate for most people's purpose.

 

I have yet to find a tool that I found really comfortable for doing that.  Maybe this is it.

I can't resist putting this site up here even if it's more geared towards teaching English and not so much anything 'techy'.  It's really well done and the author has done a great job of personalising the lessons and finding topics which will genuinely engage the reader.  If you consider that all the resources are online and there are some videos within the lessons, it may just pass as techy?  In any case, a good resource is a good resource so I hope some of you teachers find it a good scoop!

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?

 

As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Pinterest's popularity can be attributed to its ease of use and vibrant Pinboards. Recently, a number of similar social curation sites developed specifically for students and teachers have popped up, emulating Pinterest in key ways while focusing on learning. In some cases, they have even made improvements.

 

Here are five such sites that could be contenders for the title "Pinterest of Education"
