Toisen asteen oppilaitoksia uhkaa iso karsinta | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Valtio on säästöjen päälle uudistamassa rahoituksen niin, että käytännössä vain vahvat oppilaitokset selviävät. Etelä-Suomessa karsitaan vierekkäin ja osin päällekkäin olevaa ammatillista koulutusta, pohjoisessa puolestaan pienet lukiot joutuvat uhan alle.

1,000,000 people and businesses are now using Scoop.it! - Curation

1,000,000 people and businesses are now using Scoop.it! - Curation | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Interest-based content curation was only a vision 2 years ago when we launched: in a post Web 2.0 world, we felt that more and more we are the content we publish. Whether we liked it or not, we would all need to become media - a problem for busy professionals who don’t have time or inspiration for that and whose primary expertise is often not to be a content publisher.

Since then, publishing-by-curation rapidly turned into an important trend as 1,000,000 freelance professionals, community managers, content marketers, educators, knowledge managers, thought leaders, and more are now using Scoop.it to demonstrate and share their professional expertise, develop visibility for their small or mid-sized businesses or to make the company they work for smarter.

What Types of E-Books Are Best for Young Readers?

What Types of E-Books Are Best for Young Readers? | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Could e-books actually get in the way of reading? In a study looking at students’ use of e-books created with Apple’s iBooks Author software, the Schugars discovered that the young readers often skipped over the text altogether, engaging instead with the books’ interactive visual features.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 16, 8:04 PM

Do students retain more information from e-books or from traditional books? Some studies have shown that they retain more from traditional books but this post shares research that take stock of the features of e-books, noting that "the very “richness” of the multimedia environment that e-books provide—touted as their advantage over printed books—may actually overwhelm kids’ limited working memory, leading them to lose the thread of the narrative or to process the meaning of the story less deeply."

The post provides suggestions of books that provide multimedia that is beneficial as well as ways to effectively use ebooks with young children.

How I Became The Most Followed Nobody In Finland via @JaanaNystrom

How I Became The Most Followed Nobody In Finland via @JaanaNystrom | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

@Jaana Nyström is a great curator and she just beat me to the punch :). When she shared her EPIC journey of using G+ to move from "nobody" to "somebody" I planned to blog about her amazing journey. The content and message was too good to be trapped in comments.

Read this post CAREFULLY as you may recognize where you are on Jaana's timeline of personal brand development. There are several "inside baseball" tips to pay particular attention to including:

* Don't worry about perfection, start publishing.
* G+ is an AMAZING and vastly under used tool (start there add more social nets later).
* No matter what, keep turning the crank (keep going) since the only sin you and your personal band can't recover from is NOT PLAYING.

Great stuff from an amazing curator. What lessons did you learn from Jaana Nystrom? What similar lessons have you learned as you create a meaningful personal brand?

50 Great Content Curators - Ana Cristina Pratas via @CrowdFunde | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Ana Cristina Pratas
My friend @Ana Cristina Pratas is our 2nd "Great Content Curator" to be profiled on CrowdFunde. Ana Cristina's joyful curation always lifts my spirits while teaching ideas and connections hard to imagine without her.

Ana Cristina is leading the charge of a new tribe of educators who understand the "deep learning" possible from content curation (see This Is Your Brian On Content Curation http://sco.lt/6NqXKr ). Ana was the 2nd curator to crest 1M views on Scoop.it, but numbers don't tell the whole story.

Every interaction I have with Ana Cristina I learn something, feel inspired and want to CREATE SOMETHING (lol). She is an inspiring leader, a great educator and a content curation treasure.
