Gingko App - For collaborative writing

Gingko App - For collaborative writing | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Since Gingko is tree-based, one person can work on the overall organization, while a second is writing the main points of a particular section, and a third is taking those points and fleshing them out in a subsection.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

Very good app for long documents. You could work in a 3 tree level, allowing you to conect between levels, add links, pics, etc... quite user-friendly.

Now that I've discovered the wonderful Gingko App, my writing (and pre-writing) is not going to be the same again.

Great way to set foundational skills!

Principal dd's curator insight, February 25, 2013 12:23 AM

A great way to get students who struggle with getting 'pen / pencil' onto their paper ... let them get a start on their HHDD (hand held digital device).

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

I started my blog using WordPress and I have found it a platform that makes it easy to own and publish your own content online.

 

It is the foundation to the success of this blog which currently receives over 300,000 hits per month.

 

If you’re looking for an easy way to create a web presence and start sharing your ideas online, the best way to do this is to create a blog. Millions of users around the world already express themselves and share their thoughts by means of their personal blogs.

 

The advantage of having your own WordPress blog that is self-hosted is that you own it.

 

It is good to have a Facebook “page” or a Tumblr blog but they are owned by someone else and you can have a web presence there but under their “Terms and Conditions” It is basically a rental.

Self-hosting a WordPress site is the next step, after folks feel they've outgrown the free wordpress.com sites.

I love word press and we use it for our school blog http://stgregory.edublogs.org/  ;

dakinane's curator insight, February 27, 2013 5:17 PM

Both org and .com variants of Wordpress are a delight to use, I have sued them for years, had to abandon my hosted Wordpress blog when I upgraded my website.  I miss it.
