4 ways to integrate Scoop.it with WordPress

4 ways to integrate Scoop.it with WordPress | Learning to be a teacher librarian | Scoop.it
Before we even launched our public version, we recognized that a lot of content curators were also occasional or regular bloggers and started to offer ways to integrate with Wordpress - the leading blogging platform. Since then, we've seen a lot of our users leverage this integration as well as more and more of our Enterprise clients wanting to combine content curation through Scoop.it and the CMS capabilities of Wordpress for their sites. So we've multiplied the ways you could integrate with a Wordpress site or blog and including the recent addition of the Scoop.it plugin for Wordpress for our Enterprise clients. Continue reading →

This might be very handy in my Teacher Librarianship course and for developing professional learning networks.

"Information overload" - libraries and bookshops have always contained overwhelming quantiities of data, just as a phonebook used to - but most people never felt compelled to engage with all of it... has that changed?

RESOURCING FOR THE AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM : BUILDING DIGITAL COLLECTIONS by Lyn Hay

RESOURCING FOR THE AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM : BUILDING DIGITAL COLLECTIONS by Lyn Hay | Learning to be a teacher librarian | Scoop.it

An extensive body of research spanning five decades has shown that the quality of a school library’s collection has a significant impact on student learning, whether measured in terms of reading scores, literacy or learning more generally, on student achievement, regardless of the socioeconomic or educational levels of the adults within the community (Lonsdale, 2003; Scholastic Library Publishing, 2008).

Crackerjack Education

Crackerjack Education | Learning to be a teacher librarian | Scoop.it

The new Australian National Curriculum has inspired two women to put together an online range of hundreds of interactive Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander resources for teachers, parents and educators.
Wiradjuri woman Nola Turner-Jensen and Brisbane-born Janelle Latcham said ‘Crackerjack Education’ had been developed over the past 2 years to help young Australians in mainstream classrooms understand the depth and beauty of Australian Aboriginal & Torres Strait islander history and culture.
“The most exciting thing for me about this collection of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander digital resources is that by matching them to the National Curriculum, we are ensuring that they cross all mainstream learning areas, not just Aboriginal & Torres Strait islander,” Ms Turner-Jensen said.
“We are committed to ensuring our resources are modern, exciting and relevant enough for teachers in Australia to use them everyday in their classrooms.” Our aim is to support educators to feel confident to use our resources.

Tick off every single National Curriculum Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cross Curricular code at the one site


Via Vilma Galstaun
Jane Schmude's insight:

This will be a very useful website for finding resources to incorporate the National cross curriculum priorities on Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander perspectives. You can search for resources by Year level, subject and focus.
