Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 4, 2014 9:21 PM

Andrew Church has created a tool for Self-Assessment and Reflection that asks students to answer 4 questions:

* What can I do? ((How am I going?)

* What can't I do? (How am I going?)

* How does my work compare with others? (How am I going?) 

* What can I do better? (Where do I go next?)

And then students are asked to look ahead with this question:

* What are my next steps? (What actions are you going to take as  a result of your reflections? Who can help me? Where to next?)

You can download two versions of this as a pdf file. One is in portrait mode and one in landscape mode. Church also asks that you provide him with feedback.

Carol Thomson's curator insight, April 6, 2014 3:35 PM

Have been looking for something i can use with students that they understand and dont panic about.

75 Content Starters for Any Industry

75 Content Starters for Any Industry | My Blog 2015 | Scoop.it

Excerpt from the article by Moz Blog:
"Before you go on the hunt for inspiration all over the Internet and elsewhere, turn to the resources around you and realize that you can create exceptional content with what you already have at hand.

Thinking of content topics doesn't have to be such a long and grueling undertaking. Use the following starting points the next time you need an idea.

Here are the main sections of the article:

  • Individual achievement;
  • Tools;
  • Lists;
  • Internal resources;
  • Industry;
  • How-to;
  • Company culture;
  • Educational series;
  • Events;
  • Research;
  • Theories;
  • Higher-level overviews;
  • Promotional;
  • Seasonal;
  • Out of the box.


Whether or not you decide to use these exact ideas, I hope I've given you some directions to explore. Think hard, collaborate with smart team members, and make these your own.

No matter which post topics you choose, remember to infuse these ideas with personality, data, and insights that only you and your brand can offer. Publishing content that provides value no one else can is what truly leads to the traffic, social shares, and links you crave..."

Each section is analyzed with detailed starting points, shining examples and external links. Read full article:
