The Taxonomy of Social Media | Social Media Today

Every educator has studied Bloom’s Taxonomy. Variations have been suggested and adjustments made over the years but we are all familiar with the concept and visuals associated with it.

This looks like a great tool to create review quizzes, using Youtube as content curation.

e_learnglobal's comment, January 9, 2013 2:46 PM
Here is an update:After an hour trying to work Blubbr out, here's my feedback:

1. There is no help which makes it hard to work it out. It is beta, so i guess it will come

2. All the marketing and reviews make it appear you can play the whole video, when in fact you can only select a series of 30 second clips from the video. Therefore, don't see this as a particularly helpful review tool for training and development, more for people who enjoy trivia and quizzes.

Shame, because it looked promising!

Curating vs. Collecting on Twitter for the Education Professional

Curating vs. Collecting on Twitter for the Education Professional | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, January 8, 2013 10:03 PM

 

Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano has an interesting and highly visual post on collecting vs. curating with Twitter, and on the curation potential Twitter has in store for those involved in education.

 

She quotes Mike Fisher writing: "Collecting is what kids do when asked to find resources for a particular topic. Usually, it represents the first 3 or 4 hits on a Google search, without meaning, discernment, or connections.

 

Curating is different. It’s the Critical Thinker’s collection, and involves several nuances (see Figure 1) that separate it as an independent and classroom-worthy task."

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

 

Full article: http://langwitches.org/blog/2013/01/03/twitter-as-a-curation-tool/# 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Robin's curated posts hits it on the nail with the distinct differences and although I like the visual aspects of the post, I struggle with referring to Twitter as a curating tool.

 

It is certainly a critical tool for collecting, researching and having the conversations. I think there is a challenge on how to effectively curate with Twitter. I know many use Storify to do this which is often a re- representationof the tweets.

 

 I am very interested in how Twitter will use Summnify aand Posterous in the field of curation.

 

As a result, I really likw the distinctions made and the logic the author takes us through. I would  perhaps be a little more cautious with referring  Twitter as a curation tool.

 

Useful 6/10

"term.ly is a way to explore the English language. It is a semantic reference. A dictionary. A thesaurus. A reference tool. Maybe more. Maybe less.

term.ly provides concise definitions and goes beyond standard thesauri by providing related words that scale the hierarchy of language, allowing you to browse to more and less specific terms, and through relationships like 'member of', 'parts', 'similar to', etc.
