Infographics are a great way of showing the world (especially Google) that you’re an expert in your field, but only if the design is of a sufficient standard. Graphics that are hard to read or poorly designed simply won’t generate the desired results.

Echostudio is a powerful new web app which allows you to aggregate, filter and combine social signals, streams, images, statistical and map data on any topic or tag you specify and to publish them online.


The new web app is particularly powerful in its ability to let you collect and mashup into one web page different kind of data and sources according to your needs without sacrificing ease of use and design elegance.


Several filtering and moderation options provide the curator with all of the tools needed to precisely control the quantity and quality of content being published.


The service generates beautiful dynamic pages, which are fully responsive and that can be published online or embedded inside your own website. 


Echostudio is an ideal solution for a number of different applications including:

  • real-time live coverage of an event
  • branded social hub
  • information hub on a specific topic 
  • social news aggregator


I have been impressed by Echostudio powerful backend, ease of use, and beautiful output as well as by swiss-watch precision with which you can control almost anything in it. 

Kudos to Chris Saad and his team for having given birth to a such a wonderful discovery, curation and social publishing tool. 



Free plan available.

Using E-Portfolios in the Classroom

Using E-Portfolios in the Classroom | E-Learning | Scoop.it

With more and more schools going paperless or migrating to the "cloud" (storing files on the Internet), student work has become more easily shareable, accessible by many, and more easily organized. Many teachers have turned to digital portfolios -- or "e-portfolios" -- for their students. These digital portfolios have caused a huge shift in how teachers assign, collect and assess student classwork and projects.

Rebecca Delabrer's curator insight, October 5, 2014 9:45 PM

This article describes how student's work in school used to be more private and usually only seen by the teacher if it was done on paper. Now that schools are resorting to "paperless" classrooms, children's work is becoming much more easy to share and find and other things.

I don't think schools should go paperless. The internet is a dangerous place, especially for dumb kids our age. Not only that but the internet allows kids to cheat a lot easier than they already do now so it's promoting cheating indirectly.

Autism Discovery Tool app promotes not only understanding, but also ways to help address an individual’s needs, and gives kids and adults a chance to “walk a mile in someone’s shoes”. It was intended as a tool to help kids on the spectrum, their families and caretakers identify both sensory styles and compensatory techniques so that they could open up a dialogue to communicate and share experiences. It is considered an essential app for all classrooms and families who deal with sensory issues, and not limited to those on the autistic spectrum alone.

Filomena Gomes's curator insight, April 18, 2015 9:52 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Notwithstanding the viral content-marketing tam-tam keeps selling the idea of content curation as a miracle-shortcut to work less, produce more content and get all of the benefits that an online publisher would want to have, reality has quite a different shade.

To gain reader's attention trust and interest, it is evidently not enough to pull together a few interesting titles while adding a few lines of introductory text.

 

Unless your readers are not very interested themselves into the topic you cover, why would they take recomendations from someone who has not even had the time to fully go through his suggested resources?

Superficially picking apparently interesting content from titles or even automatically selecting content for others to read is like recommending movies or music records based on how much you like their trailers or their cover layouts.

 

Can that be useful beyond attracting some initial extra visibility?

 

How can one become a trusted information source if one does not thoroughly look and understand at what he is about to recommend?

This is why selling or even thinking the idea of using content curation as a time and money-saver is really non-sense.

Again, for some, this type of light content curation may work in attracting some extra visibility in the short-term, but it will be deleterious in the long one, as serious readers discover gradually that content being suggested has not even been read, let alone being summarized, highlighted or contextualized.

Content curation takes serious time.

 

A lot more than the one needed to create normal original content.

To curate content you need to:

Find good content, resources and references. Even if you have good tools, the value is in searching where everyone else is not looking. That takes time.

Read, verify and vet each potential resource, by taking the time needed to do this thoroughly.

Make sense of what that resource communicates or represents / offers and be able to synthesize it for non-experts who will read about it.

Synthesize and highlight the value of the chosen resource within the context of your interest area.

Enrich the resource with relevant references, and related links for those that will want to find out more about it.

Credit and attribute sources and contributors.

 Preserve, classify and archive what you want to curate.

Share, distribute, promote the curated work you have produced. Creating it is not enough.


(While it is certainly possible to do a good curation job without doing exactly all of the tasks I have outlined above, I believe that it is ideal to try to do as many as these as possible, as each adds more value to the end result you will create.)

 

These are many more steps and activities than the ones required to create an original piece of content.

Curation is all about quality, insight and attention to details.

It is not about quantity, speed, saving time, producing more with less.

 
Robert Kisalama's curator insight, April 18, 2015 11:37 AM

truly Curation should not be  merely aggregating different links without  taking off time to reflect indeed it is very to end up like some one buying clothes impulsively only to realise you could have done without some of them.
