Kate JohnsonMcGregor's curator insight, June 9, 9:05 AM

In the Learning Commons community, this makes sooooo much sense. Inquiry based learning is all about questioning, gathering, re-thinking, re-purposing and sharing information. Teachers and t-l's who practice and model curation in course design will be better equipped to instruct their students in curation. Love this!

A Flipped-Up Twitter Feed with Only The Good Stuff In It: Vellum

A Flipped-Up Twitter Feed with Only The Good Stuff In It: Vellum | Curation and Libraries and Learning | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
Joyce Valenza's insight:

Via Robin Good--a NYT experiment that "acts as a reading list  for your Twitter feed, finding all the links that are being shared by those you follow on Twitter and displaying them each with their full titles and descriptions. This flips the Twitter model, treating the links as primary and the commentary as secondary (you can still see all the tweets about each link, but they are less prominent). Vellum puts a spotlight on content, making it easy to find what you should read next."

 

Links are ranked by how often those you follow share them.

Capture, Edit, Collect and Organize Images and Full Web Pages with Ember (Mac)

Capture, Edit, Collect and Organize Images and Full Web Pages with Ember (Mac) | Curation and Libraries and Learning | Scoop.it
Collect the things you love, with Ember. Whether you’re capturing photos, screenshots or any other kind of image - save, annotate and sync it with Ember.

Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, March 5, 10:30 AM



Ember is a Mac and iOS app that allows you to easily capture parts of a screen, a specific image, a whole window or a full web page easily and to edit it, collect it and organize it according to tags, themes/groups and colours.


Ember key strengths are:


a) the image "capture" toolset, which is second to none. It offers maximum flexibility, it is simple, and allows you to save directly to any folder/group/collection you have set-up.


b) the image editor utility that integrates a set of useful tools that includes cropper, focus/blur areas, rotate, add text, freehand drawing.


c) the elegantly designed "library" where you can organize your images and screenshots easily via drag and drop into collections. Each image can also have a description and multiple tags. In addition Ember can automatically sort all your images by colors.


d) the "subscription" area where you subscribe to image feeds from various sites and galleries to get inspiration and ideas.


iCloud-syncable.


Ember is a beautifully designed app that does a fantastic job of capturing any kind of image or screenshot from the web and to give you relevant tools to edit it and "curate" it into private collections.

N.B.: Though Ember is really a great app to use, I would not pay its relatively hefty price tag, unless it allowed me to publish or export (in a publishable format) some of my collections.


Free to 14-day trial.

Price £.34.99 


N.B.: Ember requires Mac OSX Mavericks to run.


More info: http://realmacsoftware.com/ember 


Free trial: http://realmacsoftware.com/redirects/ember/try/ 


Download from Mac App Store: http://realmacsoftware.com/redirects/ember/appstore 


Download from iOS App Store: http://realmacsoftware.com/redirects/ember-ios/appstore
