A Great source of great sound effects to choose from for your personal choice.

 

Pro's

Its a beneficial for anybody to use to have access to soundeffects

 

Con's

It would be bad for some business's because the more people have acccess to free sound samples companies would loose money because people aren't buying the sounds anymore.

Robin Good's insight:


If you are looking for some good inspiring examples of how content and news curation can be put to good use, Bob Geller has published this past spring a useful article reviewing five different content curation approaches
that are very successful.

The five sites reviewed in this article "have all been tremendously successful in leveraging third party content, optimizing it, adding value, and building audience. They range from the famous to the obscure. There are some common threads, yet each has a different formula."


Useful. Resourceful. Good examples. 7/10

Yes. Just stay tuned and you are going to see more good examples.

Sometimes you need an archive of a site. Gret for slow bandwidth areas when you just want to show an aspect of a site. Here is how.

Four tools for determining web cred

SJL--NeverEndingSearch--Joyce Valenza

As teachers and librarians we are used to discussing traditional measures of credibility with student researchers.

But creators of social media and members of networked communities don’t always have CVs.

So what strategies can we share for analyzing the credibility of social media and user-generated content?

There are a few newer metrics. And while they may not be perfect measures of authority in brand-driven, perhaps self-indulgent landscapes, student researchers ought to know about their existence as potential tools.

Glenda's Assistive Technology Information and more...: Reading Websites for Young Readers | Music | Scoop.it

"Learning to read starts with being exposed to great books. Reading should be fun and intimate. The Internet has become such a rich resource that software is rarely needed any longer and I guess this could be the only exposure a child has to books, but I sure hope not! Part of learning to read is the intimacy that comes from sharing a good book. Not just reading it but discussing it, talking about the pictures, relating it to your life."
