The 7 attributes of highly effective curated posts

The 7 attributes of highly effective curated posts | Innovation | Scoop.it

If you’re limiting your content curation to sharing third-party content on social media, you’re missing out. Content curation is also a great way to enrich your blog or website: don’t just list great resources on your home page, turn them into curated posts.

7 Content Curation Tips from those in the Know. What they call annotating the piece, Scoop.it calls adding your "Insight" to the shared piece of content. I like to address the WiiFM factor, so the reader knows what's in it for them by opting to open and read the piece.

Charlie Southwell (aka @charliesaidthat) brought Brain In Hand to my attention. It's an app that can help those on the autistic spectrum function with difficult decision making, and provide decision making and help tools. It looks really fantastic! While my own son is learning coping techniques to use on his own, I could see this being something helpful for him in the future. Currently, it's available in the UK only, and not in the US, but they do hope to expand someday (let's hope so!). This is a brilliant use of mobile content and technology being used, and I applaud the efforts being done with this company!

A Parent's Guide to Minecraft: 5 Reasons to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Cubes

A Parent's Guide to Minecraft: 5 Reasons to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Cubes | Innovation | Scoop.it
I was, of course, a noob about to die inside Minecraft. Calling Minecraft a game doesn’t do it justice; Available on nearly every device where games can be played, from computers and consoles to smartphones, Minecraft boasts more than 100 million registered players, many of them barely out of kindergarten. Minecraft worlds are made up of chunky graphics reminiscent of the earliest video games.

Terry Nichols's insight:

There is no program I have witnessed that allows for better use of the 4C than minecraft if it is structured to multi players and time for discussion of creations.  My grand son has designated me as the miner and he is the architect of buildings, waterfalls underground and underwater caves and cities etcetc.  Survival is an art that includes planning, connection and need. Teachers could utilize games such as minecraft in the connection to real learning perseverance , creation, grit and To understand that "to plan is grand".

This is a Minecraft household! It's good to read the many benefits of Minecraft, which can be used for both e-learning and m-learning (as it's available for desktop and mobile devices, although my son, the expert of the family, says the desktop experience is much richer and shuns the mobile version). Love the cubes!

Any "Minercrafter" in your home? I keep hearing Minecraft's music in my head and it is not a funky beat. lol This is a good read for parents.

Terry Nichols's insight:
This is the next step for K-12 Ed. Core classes will be MOOC and the "collaboration" will be at the school site. Athletics, fine arts, performance, purpose based learning.
