14 Little-Known Ways Students Can Get More Out Of Google - Infographic | Embracing secondary ELA | Scoop.it
These days, so much of the research students do is of the online variety. There’s less time spent in the library, requesting materials, and reading through print journals.

I wondered.
Jennifer Gandarias's insight:

This is a great article for class discussion.  Are trigger warnings a type of censorship?  Do students need warnings about books?  Are they necessary?  If we are upset about this, do we need warnings for life?

While I never use rubrics found online wholesale, they certainly give good ideas for creating units and our own rubrics.

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | Embracing secondary ELA | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

 

Dean Mantz's insight:

Thank you Ally Greer for sharing this resource on curation.  I like the simplicity of the graphic as it looks quite similar to the scientific method.

This a great list, but, perfect?  I don't know about that :)  Stories aren't a magic bullet. However, applying these elements and telling the right story+right time+right audience... can make an emotional connection with your audience that impacts your business.
