10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

If you want learn more about social media curation and/or start your own scoop.it you should read this excellent and detailed blog post from Shirley Williams. [note mg]

 

Are you asking the following questions: “What is social media curation?” and “How does it add value?” Are you like many business owners trying to get your head around curation and the associated benefits? Well I have come to realize, you are not alone!

 

In an earlier post I defined curation. In this post I would like us to revisit that definition and share how value can be gained by demonstrating how to use Scoop.it.

 

Reminder of What’s Social Media Curation?

 

With the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, the amount of information on the internet can be overwhelming and time consuming. Consequently, the role of the social media curator has become increasingly more attractive. Social media curation is when you filter, select, review and reposition quality content on the web for a specific audience and/or topic...

Tweeting For Schools

Tweeting For Schools | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Awhile ago, I wrote a post entitled, “What Should A Networked Educational Leader Tweet About?“, which was meant to be a guide to administrators new to Twitter on tweeting and sharing information using this social media tool. It is something that I am hoping all educators can use, but I obviously think that administrators should really understand the important use of social media in schools.

On motivation – Intrinsic motivation | Onlignment

On motivation – Intrinsic motivation | Onlignment | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"...The principle to keep in mind is that you cannot motivate other people. The most you can do is create conditions and consequences that cause others to motivate themselves. Any parent, who has ever attempted to persuade a teenager to tidy a room, knows that this is true. Any parent who has ever attempted to limit a teenager’s time playing with a computer game knows this too. In some cases, the compulsion is with what you might term a “replacement” or “avoidance” activity. It is an excuse for not doing something that is more meaningful but less attractive. In other cases it is the pull of conformity and affiliation to the group that keeps the individual engaged in the task..."

Chart Gizmo – Online Chart Builder | Mark Brumley | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Standardized test results, grade distributions, assessment analyses, you have data coming out of your ears. Creating graphs and reports related to the data is time-consuming and usually takes a back burner in the midst of lesson planning, student issues and the wealth of other responsibilities teachers have on their plates. When your eyes are heavy from looking at the same spreadsheet over and over and you don’t know if you’ll ever make sense of the data, turn to Chart Gizmo.
