Social Media and Schools as Professional Learning Communities: Building Your Personal Network with Twitter

Social Media and Schools as Professional Learning Communities: Building Your Personal Network with Twitter | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Excellent in depth article on Twitter as professional learning source - from Brisbane Catholic Education’s Information and Resourcing Centre. "The power of Twitter is that it places the teacher at the centre of a network to which all parts are equally accessible. Teachers who use Twitter can access not only traditional sources of information, but also the expertise and advice of internationally renowned experts from across many fields within and beyond education. Research has identified six ‘common patterns of participation’ for users of Twitter..."

Ultimate List of Free Content Creation Tools & Resources

Ultimate List of Free Content Creation Tools & Resources | Into the Driver's Seat | 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!

Evernote’s New App Is More Than an Update—It’s a Reboot

Evernote’s New App Is More Than an Update—It’s a Reboot | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
EVERNOTE ROLLED OUT an update to its iOS app today. Ordinarily, the company makes its big changes alongside new versions of iOS, or to make a splash with a new iPhone. (Turns out a great way to get new users is to be in Apple’s “works with our latest stuff” section of the App Store.) This time, there’s no magic to the day. It’s just Tuesday.

But you’d be wrong to think this isn’t a hugely important upgrade to Evernote. In fact, this random Tuesday is one of the most significant moments in the nine-year history of the company. Version 8.0 brings with it an entirely new design, a bunch of refinements to what had become a hopelessly overwrought service, and a renewed focus on what Evernote is actually for. It’s the fastest, cleanest app the company has ever released. It’s the culmination of more than a year of overdue under-the-hood work to make Evernote reliable, consistent, and future-proof. And it represents the beginning of a new era for the company, in which it will try to make the transition from a note-taking app to being the place you do your best thinking. And thanks to the latest in machine learning and artificial intelligence, a place that does some of the thinking for you.

5 Crucial Tips When Using Online Videos as an Educational Resource by Jeff Herb | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
With so much educational and informative content available in the form of online videos on YouTube as well as various websites and blogs – it is definitely worth looking into using them as an educational resource. However as much as there is a lot of information available from these videos, how you go about using them is extremely important.
