Curate Your Social Media Magazine with NewzSocial

Curate Your Social Media Magazine with NewzSocial | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

Robin Good: NewzSocial is a free iPad curation app which allows you to instantly create topic-specific channels and to easily curate the content stories that you deem appropriate for each.

 

Curators can work in teams and collaboratively organize one or more news channels.

 

From the App Store download page: "NewzSocial is a free social news reader app that allows you to follow, create and share broad and niche news streams on your topics of interest.

 

The app has unique social curation features using which you can tap into your network of ‘topic expert’ friends and get the news you want selected by the experts you know."

 

A reviewer on the App Store left this comment: "What blew me away is the number of great articles the app has. I just searched for latest fashion trends & got really great articles. With flipboard, after reading 5-7 articles, it's the same stories from yesterday. "

 

Free to use.

When will iBooks become the norm in schools?

When will iBooks become the norm in schools? | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

"There has been a push to replace books in the educational arena for some time now. This push hasn’t been in Washington or school board meeting rooms even though they are happening there as well. The big push is happening in the minds of students who are growing increasingly tablet-savvy and almost “spoiled” to the point that paper-products are old, almost archaic."

There is an infographic with this article that looks at the ongoing debate called 'Can Apple Do It Again? How Apple's iBooks will change the way we iLearn."
