Talking to kids about creating their positive presence on the web is important.  It's not only what they post, but what they don't post that is important, especialy as they get to high school.  Have them create an e-folio and know what is needed to keep their digital image clear and positibe.

12 Fabulous Academic Search Engines ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

In the world of academia, Google search engine does not always serve the purpose because most of the time its search results are not exact . I am a huge fan of Google but when it comes to academic search queries I  often have recourse to other search engines that are area or content specific. I have curated a list of some of these search engines that I personally use and I added to them other titles I found through Julie Greller . Enjoy

This is How Teachers Use Pinterest ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

"It is really amazing the popularity Pinterest gained in this very short period since its official launch. Compared to some other social media outlets, Pinterest has made a real and major breakthrough . It has radically transformed the notion of bookmarking by making it visually engaging. This ' visual ingredient ' is what matters to today's netizens ( citizens of the net ). People are more attracted to visual cues than text cues and this is normal given the way the brain reads, processes, and interprets the incoming signals. Images take less time and less efforts to be internally processed."
