Happy: Connected content, personalized learning, curating, maker spaces, and digital citizenship trending up.

Sad: digital reputation and infographics trending down. Very interesting read.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 13, 2013 1:14 PM

Part of the problem is the idea that the trends are being tabulated so rapidly no one can keep up. Is that by design?

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's comment, September 13, 2013 1:22 PM
Good question. Everything moves and changes so rapidly these days it is hard to know.

Web tools to support inquiry-based learning

Inquiry-based learning is an active learning process, based on identifying relevant questions to research so that the student can develop knowledge about or create solutions to issues and problems.

Web tools allow students to engage in collaborative and interactive learning. All phases of inquiry learning can be adequately addressed through a wide variety of web-based tools and applications.

How Users Interact On Pinterest, Study Reveals User Habits

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, February 10, 2014 11:20 AM

I was introduced to Pinterest by one of my students about six months before the boom that made Pinterest a household word.


I wish I'd seized the opportunity and jumped right in. However, at first I just didn't get it.  Now in hindsight I realize that Pinterest is a curation platform-- one that appeals to millions.  Needless to say I'm now curating a dozen different interests!
