Interesting take on a few forms of curation that can be used.  Infographic is, as the creator remarked, a little crowded, however the information is useful.

a new curation tool arises?

Giuseppe Mauriello's curator insight, January 18, 2013 3:24 PM

New Hive is new social media consumption network around self-expression.

 

From "About" page:

"An Expression can be anything.
You can customize each page to look however you want by easily dragging and dropping text, images, shapes, music, sketches, video + content from other sites to lay out each expression exactly as you wish.

 

Each Expression can be private or public, each one gets it's own custom URL.
It's easy to share through email, blogs, websites + all of your social media sites.

the digital portfolio process outlines

AAEEBL's comment, January 20, 2013 8:12 PM
ReScooped, but I want to raise some questions about some of the key values eportfolios offer such as peer interaction and social learning and integrative knowledge and reflection. This 3-step process seems to make it all look very simple, but there's a good deal of educational transformation and adjustment to new pedagogical practices that go along with these three steps.
AAEEBL's curator insight, January 20, 2013 8:13 PM

I'd be very interested in comments on these three steps?  What's being left out?  Social learning?  Integrative learning?  Reflection?  This does not reflect any values in eportfolio work or actual LEARNING advantages.  Thoughts?
