A Great Platform for Curating and Publishing On Any Topic: RebelMouse

A Great Platform for Curating and Publishing On Any Topic: RebelMouse | IT and learning | Scoop.it

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

RebelMouse may be one of the best free tools out there to do news, social or content curation for your personal brand, company or organization.

 

Beneath the appearance of a social media aggregation app, lies a super-powerful curation and publishing infrastructure which allows you to aggregate and monitor any social media stream from Facebook to Instagram and Pinterest, and lets you import RSS feeds and add specific filters to get exactly what you want.

 

While most reviewers will see RebelMouse as a tool to "quickly assemble a Web page populated with links from your Facebook and Twitter streams, using a slick graphical presentation that looks quite a bit like Pinterest" (source: HuffPo), I think this social aggregation and publishing has indeed a lot more to offer and it has all of the required features to become a great content curation and publishing solution.

 

With RebelMouse you can do seven key things. You can:

 

pick any content you find on the web and you can curate it and post to your rebelMouse site by using the freely available bookmarklet

aggregate any number of Facebook and Twitter streams, including specific searches, users and hashtags, as well as any RSS feed you want.

filter this content according to your own rules

auto-publish any of this content, or 

set individual sources to be manually "curated" by you.  

"embed" your RebelMouse generated site on your website or "map" (by paying a small fee) your own domain to it.

create multiple sub-pages with RebelMouse and a dedicated navigation system that can point also to your own existing web properties. Each of these sub-sites can be customized to focus on a specific topic or event.

 

On the design and "look and feel" front, RebelMouse provides a set of alternative templates, but the look is basically the same across the board with variants relating to the font styles and colors.

 

It is also true that you can personalize your RebelMouse site and alter the design however you'd like with the custom CSS option that is already available.

 

But it is certain, that providing a set of advanced, professional-looking templates, where users could for examples decide manually the size of certain tiles, would provide enormous added value to users who would see RebelMouse as a possible direct gateway to publishing their own site.

For $9.99/month you can also "map" your RebelMouse pages to your own domain, so that your RebelMouse content stays on your own site.

In addition you can also further customize the RebelMouse page look, by being able to remove the "Following" and "Featured" modules from your pages.

RebelMouse was born to build a social media hub, but it does have strong aggregation, filtering and curation capabilities. SEO-wise it is not a great choice, but also Scoop.it has quite a few limits on this front. <br><br>Rebelmouse doesn't offer all of the extras Scoop.it has, from scheduling, to sharing to an extended number of social networks, to integration with newsletter and to the backend dashboard. <br><br>Scoop.it has also a better, cleaner and more legible format, that better lends itself to more in-depth reading than just browsing titles, images and tweets.

While I still use RebelMouse I have disconnected all inbound links because it posts it wacky and I was always having to go back and edit stuff. Now that I post stuff manually with their applet it isn't so bad. I still prefer Scoop.it though.

I use Rebelmouse for a while now, and I like it as a complementary tool to other Social Media tools. You can have a look at it on https://www.rebelmouse.com/Terheck/

101 Tweet-Tastic Tools for 2013

101 Tweet-Tastic Tools for 2013 | IT and learning | Scoop.it

As much as I love Twitter, I have to admit I haven’t seen that familiar blue Twitter home page in quite a while. Why? because although Twitter is amazing, I can only fully leverage it by using a range of Twitter tools.

 

I’ve written several blog posts on Socialable about some of my favorite and most used Twitter tools but I thought it would be a good idea to create a series of 101 of the top social media and blogging tools.  So here is the first in the series – and it made sense to start with Twitter seeing as it’s my social media “weapon of choice” and generates over 50% of the traffic to Socialable.

101 herramientas para Tuitear: un buen repaso de casi todas las aplicaciones útiles que hay por ahí.... y a todas estas, ¿qué herramienta le echas en falta al twitter?

Eduardo Area Sacristan's curator insight, March 14, 2013 11:40 AM

Por mucho que me encanta Twitter, tengo que admitir que no he visto ese familiar azul en la página principal de Twitter en un buen rato. ¿Por qué? ya que si bien Twitter es increíble, sólo lo puedo aprovechar plenamente mediante el uso de una gama de herramientas de Twitter.

He escrito varias entradas de blog en Socialable sobre algunas de mis herramientas favoritas de Twitter y más he utilizado, pero pensé que sería una buena idea crear una serie de 101 de los principales medios de comunicación sociales y las herramientas de blogging. Así que aquí está el primero de la serie - y tenía sentido empezar con Twitter ya que es mi medios de comunicación social como "arma de elección" y genera más del 50% del tráfico de Socialable.

No One Has a Monopoly on Deeper Learning

No One Has a Monopoly on Deeper Learning | IT and learning | Scoop.it
In this post, Jal Mehta begins to map the landscape of deeper learning. He argues that seeing progressive or project-based schools as "deeper" and "no excuses" schools as shallower is not the right way to see the world; both have strengths and weaknesses that are the inverse of one another. He also suggests that much deeper learning happens outside of core disciplinary classes in extra-curriculars and electives, because these spheres induct students into gradually deeper understandings of how their practices work. Implications for traditional schools and core disciplinary classes are also discussed.
