News Discovery: Here's The Cream of the Crop - Best Apps and Services To Find The News You Like

News Discovery: Here's The Cream of the Crop - Best Apps and Services To Find The News You Like | Empowered eLearning communities | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Here is a good and well written overview of some of the best news discovery tools out there.

 

These services, generally avaliable as mobile apps and/or desktop tools, aggregate a large number of relevant news sources in different categories of interest, and leverage in many cases your Facebook and Twitter network of contacts to suggest the type of stories you may be interested in the most.

 

Covered in the article:

Pulse Zite Google Currents Flipboard Taptu Prismatic News.me LinkedIN Today The Browser Longreads

and more

 

Excellent overview. 8/10

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | Empowered eLearning communities | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse  

Share it.

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | Empowered eLearning communities | Scoop.it

TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

 

Here are some of the specific ways educators are using Twitter to collaborate:

Sonia Thomas's curator insight, May 27, 2013 6:53 PM

Twitter provides a great opportunity to collaborate with educators outside of your local physical community. The exchange of ideas and perspectives can reenergize your career. “Twitter is often just the introduction — the virtual handshake that opens the door to a deeper collaboration”

Collect and Organize All Social Media Items Published About an Event with Eventifier

Collect and Organize All Social Media Items Published About an Event with Eventifier | Empowered eLearning communities | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Eventifier offers an easy way to auto-collect and organize all of the video, photos, tweets, slides and other social "artifacts" shared online about a specific event.

 

To make its "magic" Eventifier taps into reference hastags that you provide when registering an event, and other relevant meta-info, like the location, type and place of event you want to "curate".

 

Eventifier provides also a live dashboard to enable you to interact and respond to all this incoming media from one central location.

 

From the official site: "We all are interested in Events and to know about all the happenings in and around the events. Who were the speakers? What were the tweets for the event? Shared pictures & videos and what were the slides for the various sessions?

 

However this dataflow is scattered; searching, finding and storing this information in the vastness of internet is broken to us. These data are very random; hard to find and sort.

 

Eventifier was born from this annoyance. We thrive to make your information flow and archiving of event data effortless."

 

 

See examples: http://eventifier.co/events/&nbsp;
