Why Scoop.it Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | TeachThought.com

Why Scoop.it Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | TeachThought.com | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it

Scoop.it collates work from online publications using an online magazine format, and this visual impact alone makes it very effective.

 

The additional appeal of broadcasting from a hub allows me to tap into and share with my ed tech networks, which is why I find myself using it more often during time constraints.

 

First of all, it’s powerful–it incorporates multiple elements of familiar social media tools. But it’s also very flexible–the mobile app is quite functional for both iPhone and Android, and a toolbar plugin can be installed on browser windows. Scoop.it’s athleticism makes it a time-saver; educators and students will quickly grasp its value in content gathering.

 

Additionally, using Scoop.it will meet multiple standards (Common Core and NETS-S) across the curriculum. Students use critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning.

I'm completely convinced that Scoop.it is the curation tool of choice.  Try it. You'll like it

Why use scoopit?

Peter Mellow's comment, March 5, 2013 6:02 PM
Tim, we compared a number of curation tools using masternewmedia's "The 15 Basic Traits of a News / Content Curation System" as a guide and Scoopit ticked most of the boxes. My only worry about it is that currently there not an export or backup facility, hopefully something that they are working on. For me, it is the ease of use, if the UI is good then that makes life a lot easier! :-)

So virtual reality applications have the potential to transform our social and learning reality. They have the potential to transform the way we read and interact with text. They have the potential to transform the way and the places where we teach and the relationship between teachers and learners.

t’s an age-old saying, “Give a man a fish, and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and feed him for a lifetime.”

What separates good teachers from the excellent ones? The excellent ones are handing out fishing poles; creating a culture in the classroom of independence and self-reliance. These students don’t just recite facts or regurgitate information- they have learned how to learn. They know that if the answer isn’t in front of them, they have the tools to do the investigation and research.

So how do you cultivate a culture of “I can…” in your classroom?
