PLN Starter Kit: A Resource for Fledgling Connected Educators (students, and life-long learners)

"This crowdsourced resource is meant to help those who are just beginning to start their journey as a "connected educator." It is not exhaustive. In fact, if all goes to plan, it will be a perpetual work in progress - just like the PLNs it will hopefully help build.

 

... PLN is an acronym for Personal Learning Network. The acronym is relatively new, but the idea is not. Teachers have always had learning networks—people we learn from and share with. Teachers are information junkies. We’re also social. Put the two together and you have a personal learning network." from source: http://www.livebinders.com/

ghbrett's insight:

This site is a living document with links to very many resources related to creating, using, and understanding the values of Personal Learning Networks. It is a collection of information for a teacher, trainer, student, or life long learner that will help them to begin developing their own Personal Learning Network resources.

Secure File Sharing and Large File Cloud Storage with Copy

Secure File Sharing and Large File Cloud Storage with Copy | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
ghbrett's insight:

Robin Good shares a new Cloud Service with us in this scoop. Have a read of his comments below. They are very helpful. Thanks Robin, once again.

 

One question I do have is what is the sustainability or business models of these services. It's hard enough to keep up with local storage equipment and standards, or connectors  (e.g., Firewire, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB TNG, Apple Lightning, SATA, etc., etc.,) How will we keep up with the technology? How will we know where we put that important file? This why curation, maintenance, and digital archive management are becoming much more important.

Robin Good's curator insight, March 28, 2013 5:51 PM



Copy is a cloud-based service which allows anyone to easily upload, store and share any kind of file, while keeping in sync your different devices. Copy comes also with desktop versions for Mac, Windows and Linux as well as iOS and Android mobile versions.


"Once uploaded, Copy generates a unique URL for the file that you can copy and send to the intended recipients over email, social media networks or IM. On the receiving end, the user just needs to open that URL in their web browser and click the Download button to download the file to their PC, smartphone or tablet.


While you can use Copy’s file sharing features without creating any account, registering for one rewards you with a few additional privileges like 5GB of cloud storage and file synchronization straight from desktop or mobile, depending on which platform you use it. An account can be created both from the web interface and from within the service’s desktop or mobile apps."


Copy provides you ith 5GB of inital free storage space, which gets bumped up to 10GB as soon as you install a desktop or mobile version.


"You can share files without even creating any user account that most other similar services often require."


"Copy also keeps past versions of your files so that if you accidentally lose or change something, you can get it back. The Android app of the service comes with PhotoCopy – a feature that automatically uploads your photos to the cloud similar to Dropbox, SugarSync and Google+’s offering."

For up to 5GB and more free to use.

very interesting, thanks Robin :)

I find this MOST interesting.  Thanks Robin.  Cloud storage has become more interesting to me because I work on a laptop with a HD that is pretty well maxed-out for now.  I've used Dropbox for years and am up to about 11 G right now because I've had some referrals.  But I think it's always good to have some more storage.
