Howard Rheingold's curator insight, February 15, 2015 3:52 PM

Robin Good has taught me a great deal about RSS, news radars, filters, and curation, and is a master curator himself. I have not used Pearltrees recently, but it continues to evolve as a curation platform. Curation is an act of both personal and public infotention -- putting context and one's imprimatur on resources found to be useful, for one's own use and for the use of the commons.

Word Booster

Word Booster | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

It gives you a list of words you are likely to look up in the dictionary as far as the given text is concerned, guesses a good dictionary definition for the words along with example sentences. And finally, it also makes a quiz for the words using both the definitions and example sentences. (Of course we give you the answer key too.)

If you are using higher level text for your ESL/EFL students to read, you might want to take a few minutes and check this site out.  It works with online articles, and by just copying and pasting the URL, in less than 60 seconds, you will have vocabulary words highlighted, a word list with definitions and a vocabulary quiz with an answer key.  I love that it did all of that work for me in less time than it took me to check my log in and check my email!

Millennials say they’re watching more videos and spending more time on social media, but they are not necessarily decreasing their attention to other media. However, a recent study states that younger internet users, the so-called Generation Z (ages 13 to 17), are moving away from text-based content online, as well as television, while increasing their time with video and social media.
