Check out Google Tips to learn more about the many products that Google offers. One you find a tip that interests you and click on it you will find a short description, "stuff you need" (typically a Google account and perhaps a short amount of time based on what I viewed) and a presentation that walks you through steps. This is geared more to beginners and may be a great tool for students whom may be trying new tools.

Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.

It is a reed that to be educated today is to be not just knowledgeable but to be able to share, enlighten others with what you know, to be a curator of knowledge. I am curious what Nik Peachey has to say about curation in his essay!

Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, Today, 8:32 AM

A really great essay - with many excellent references - on the process of curation, useful digital tools, and connections to professional development in education.  Very informative.

Spell Up. Speak to play and build up your English. | Digital literacy and blended learning | Scoop.it

This is a great new game from Google which helps students develop their vocabulary through spelling and pronunciation. Using Chrome, students can actually speak to the computer and listen to the pronunciation of the words as they build a word tower. They can even listen to a speaking dictionary telling them what the words mean. This should get your students working autonomously to develop their own vocabulary and if they sign in they can track and share their results.

How Do We Teach Digital Literacy to Digital Natives? - Edudemic | Digital literacy and blended learning | Scoop.it

Young people today are instant messengers, gamers, photo sharers and supreme multitaskers. But while they use the technology tools available to them 24/7, they are struggling to sort fact from fiction, think critically, decipher cultural inferences, detect commercial intent and analyze social implications. All of which makes them extremely vulnerable to the overwhelming amount of information they have access to

From the post: "It is our job as educators and content producers to encourage kids to be capable, global citizens in a digital age. Integrating a news story into your classroom everyday not only sparks important conversations, but encourages students to create and analyze their own media responses, provides a basis for asking questions and is a seamless, natural way to incorporate CCSS nonfiction content into your daily lesson plan."
