Ultimate List of Free Content Creation Tools & Resources

Ultimate List of Free Content Creation Tools & Resources | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

While other parts of business and marketing are becoming increasingly automated, content creation is still a very manual job.


That being said, there are plenty of tools out there to make creating content much easier.


Below, you'll find a list of 36 fantastic tools and resources to help you research, write, edit, and design content more easily.


(You'll notice there are a lot of design tools in here -- that's because visual content is often the part of the content creation process where people get the most nervous and frustrated. So don't worry, we've got a ton in there for you.)...

Make content creation easier (and more fun) with these 35 free tools and resources from Lindsay Kolowich at HubSpot. I thought I knew all the tools but she's updated the list and you'll find several social media tools you didn't know before. Christmas comes early. Highly recommended! 11/10. ;-)

I use several of these tools regularly, and can recommend every one of them. I suspect I'll be investigating some of the visual/design options heading into the new year. Use this list to expand your reach in 2017!

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

Creativity is about fresh thinking. It doesn’t have to be new to the whole of humanity— though that’s always a bonus— but certainly to the person whose work it is. Creativity also involves making critical judgments about whether what you’re working on is any good, be it a theorem, a design, or a poem. Creative work often passes through typical phases. Sometimes what you end up with is not what you had in mind when you started. It’s a dynamic process that often involves making new connections, crossing disciplines, and using metaphors and analogies. 

.

Being creative is not just about having off-the-wall ideas and letting your imagination run free. It may involve all of that, but it also involves refining, testing, and focusing what you’re doing. It’s about original thinking on the part of the individual, and it’s also about judging critically whether the work in process is taking the right shape and is worthwhile, at least for the person producing it.

Creativity for Students,but also for Educators.

Such an important corrective to today's standards and assessment driven education models. Go, Sir Ken!
