If you are looking for a new starter dashboard to replace your igoogle starter page...

George Oneday's comment, June 29, 2013 2:31 PM
Well, a replacement would be nice indeed, but it can’t really match the original iGoogle and doesn’t really add value to your startpage... I feel it’s somehow a downgrade from the original iGoogle.
You you will enjoy the change, I felt a real Upgrade after I start using http://startific.com

Tips for Future Educators: Social Media and the 21st Century | Creating a PLN | Scoop.it

Social media allows for the free and open exchange of information and empowers its users to create their own communities.

 

In these communities, ideas, questions, connections, and content are what are drive the user experience.

 

===> For the educator this means engaging, sharing, and collaborating with other educators to build learning communities around their individual professional learning needs as well as creating authentic learning experiences for their students. <===

OpenTopic es un servicio de curación de noticias que te permite agregar, monitorizar y filtrar cualquier número de fuentes para publicar y compartir tu selección en los sitios que prefieras desde WordPress,  canales de Social Media o boletín electrónico.

 

Dentro de OpenTopic puedes crear uno o más cuadros de mando "Topic". esencialmente muestra las páginas que donde se agregan nuevos contenidos y el contenido entrante de las fuentes que se especifiquen. Puedes saltar de un panel a otro topic con el clic de su ratón.

 

Para curar historias simplemente tienes que seleccionar los que son relevantes para tu público y se les proporciona un módulo de edición para modificar y personalizar el contenido de la historia. En este punto también se puede seleccionar en los (canales) que la historia será publicada y se puede personalizar la historia de manera diferente para cada uno de ellos.

 

Incluso hay una opción que te permite configurar algún tipo de curación automática, dándole la opción de establecer un conjunto de reglas sencillas, que cuando coincide, dará lugar a la publicación de una noticia.

 

OpenTopic te permite conectar a un mayor número de canales posibles, por lo que es fácil enviar de un lugar a tu sitio web, RSS, redes sociales y newsletter.

 

Por último, pero no menos importante, OpenTopic integra un servicio de análisis completo, capaz de informar y dar a conocer los resultados de su trabajo de curación a través de historias y canales de distribución.

 

 

Mi comentario: Excelente herramienta para redes sociales y community managers, así como especialistas de marketing web que necesitan el soporte eficaz para descubrir noticias relevantes sobre un tema y la publicación fácil de diferentes canales de una plataforma centralizada. Fácil de usar.

I'm going to try this out! I could have everything in one place! I'm not sure if it will be as effective as my other tools but I'm willing to experiment.
