Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | ICT for Australian Curriculum | Scoop.it

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool....

Curation is a valuable skill for today’s learner. In a culture of content overload, members that provide great content to their audience will be recognized leaders in network communities. Optimally, we equip students to differentiate good content from bad in preparation for their further education and careers. Curating an online topic (and allowing comments) also increases self-awareness and provides additional insight from others. The nuances of sharing content and writing to an audience become much better understood through interactivity between the curator and participating audience.

Maree Whiteley's insight:

Students use critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning...love it!

Students as curators...using critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning...love it!

I think the scope for Scoop it is sensational. It's a great way to organise, filter, select and highlight online digital resources around a topic, theme or idea.

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Verbs [Infographic]

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Verbs [Infographic] | ICT for Australian Curriculum | Scoop.it
Feel free to share this infographic showcasing over 200 Bloom's Digital Taxonomy verbs for use in any classroom environment!
Maree Whiteley's insight:
When using Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy (a revised take on Bloom’s devised by educator Andrew Churches), it helps to have a list of taxonomy verbs to know what actions define each stage of the taxonomy. This is useful for lesson planning, rubric making, and any other teacher-oriented task requiring planning and assessment strategies. The Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy verbs in this handy infographic apply specifically to each stage of the taxonomy, from LOTS (lower-order thinking skills) to the HOTS (higher-order thinking skills).

The Twitteraholic's Ultimate Guide to tweets, hashtags, and all things Twitter | ICT for Australian Curriculum | Scoop.it

Most educators who learn to use Twitter effectively say they learn more from their personal learning network (PLN) on Twitter than they've achieved from any other forms of professional development or personal learning."

Maree Whiteley's insight:

For those who have heard of twitter and have dismissed it thinking ‘”Twitter is for people with too much time on their hands” — think again! Educators are connecting with each other on Twitter and using it like a lunch room that’s open 24/7 whenever they need help, assistance or just want to connect with others...give it a go!
