This is very insightful when creating an effective, authentic and reliable curation collection.  It is resources like this one that I feel will benefit others in their teaching and learning journey.

Dorothy Minor's curator insight, July 8, 2013 3:29 PM

This infographic provides insight into showing how to enhance learning. Critical thinking is an important skill in today's world. Students need encouragement in taking ownership of their own learning. We can find ways to encourage students from this link.

It's a simple tool, and I don't know that "story builder" is the best name for it, but if you've got a few sentences that you need people to read, and you think they'd be more likely to read it if you make it seem like you and a friend were having a conversation about the topic (set to music), this is a good tool for that sort of thing. try it by following the link.

Editorially: Write Better

Editorially: Write Better | Developing Study Skills | Scoop.it

From the Editorially blog:

 

"It’s with all this in mind that we came together to make Editorially, a new collaborative writing and editing platform. We believe that the web is not merely another distribution pipeline, but a unique and deserving space for both reading and writing. Our goal is to support and encourage that writing process — from the first flash of inspiration all the way through to publication, and at every point in between.

 

"Editorially achieves this goal in many ways: a Markdown-based writing environment lets you focus on the words and create clean markup easily; collaboration tools let you invite friends and trusted colleagues to review or edit your work; a document version system lets you mark points in a document’s history and compare versions to see what changed; notes and activity feeds encourage you to reflect on your work, for yourself and for others; and discussion threads recognize that the conversation around a text is just as important as the text itself.

 

"And we’re only getting started. This is not just another text editor: it’s an ecosystem for the writing process. We’ve designed a space that brings you closer to both the words and the people — the only things that matter."

This could be a really big deal.

 

Right now, Editorially is still in closed beta, but you can sign up for an invitation. They say they will open up very soon.

Sarah McElrath's comment, February 27, 2013 11:52 AM
Very interesting. With the way education is going, this could have a hugh impact in that sector--but only if it isn't priced too high.
Sarah McElrath's curator insight, February 27, 2013 11:53 AM

Could be very useful. Still in closed beta, but you can sign up for a trial or follow on Twitter.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 20, 2013 10:02 PM

The digital tools listed in this post are focused on vocabulary instruction, a key concern given the Common Core State Standards. Vocabulary comes into play when we look at reading, writing, speaking and listening. Students need to have a broad vocabulary, and we can support this through both direct and indirect instruction. This post provides links to online tools in the areas of:

* Reference Tools

* Word Clouds

* Games and Reviews
* Word Walls and Virtual Field Trips

The post states:

Digital tools allows students to:

* hear pronunciations;

* read words in a variety of authentic examples;

* view photos and images related to words;

* reinforce word learning through interactive games;

* play with and manipulate language;

* discover rhyming words; and

* collaborate with classmates to create virtual words walls.

Consider checking out this post and providing time for students to explore some of these tools in and outside the classroom.
