Edtwist Helps Students Organize And Collaborate On Their Online Research

Edtwist Helps Students Organize And Collaborate On Their Online Research | HCS Learning Commons Newsletter | Scoop.it

Admit it: When you think of online research, it's usually just a fancy way of saying you're going to Google something — I'm guilty, anyway. Los Los Angeles-based Edtwist isn’t trying resist that, exactly, but it has created what founder and CEO Julie Lee said is a more collaborative and “learning-centric” environment, one in which students and other researchers can work together to sift through the Internet’s “data smog” and find useful information.

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Colaborative tool for online research for students.

Knowledge Building is successful when learners have opportunity to question, discuss, reflect and build big ideas together. The Big Think http://lmcsource.com/Catalog/thebigthink.html should be designed into every learning experience in the Learning Commons

Inquiry based learning without the teacher getting in the way!  Thanks for sharing Carol!
