Robin Good's curator insight, June 26, 9:16 AM



Blendspace is a web-based content curation tool, designed specifically for educators and teachers. Blendspace sits somewhere between Pinterest and Storify as its power and simplicity make it easy to search multiple sources, import content and visually display it and organize it into boards.


Its unique strength resides in:

  1. Multiple layout pre-sets
  2. Presentation-mode
  3. Collections are embeddable
  4. Easy drag/drop reorganization of boards
  5. Team collaborators (upcoming feature)
  6. Works across all computers and devices


Very easy and intuitive to use, makes the research and collection task intuitive, and organization, presentation and publishing very effective.


I really like how Blendspace works and the results it produces. If you are looking for visual tool to create collections of resources on a specific topic for your class or training program, I'd give Blendspace a try.

So-Called "Digital Natives" Not Media Savvy, New Study Shows - ReadWrite.com

So-Called "Digital Natives" Not Media Savvy, New Study Shows - ReadWrite.com | School Librarians | Scoop.it

""In Google we trust."That may very well be the motto of today's young online users, a demographic group often dubbed the "digital natives" due their apparent tech-savvy. Having been born into a world where personal computers were not a revolution, but merely existed alongside air conditioning, microwaves and other appliances, there has been (a perhaps misguided) perception that the young are more digitally in-tune with the ways of the Web than others.

 

That may not be true, as it turns out. A new study coming out of Northwestern University, discovered that college students have a decided lack of Web savvy, especially when it comes to search engines and the ability to determine the credibility of search results. Apparently, the students favor search engine rankings above all other factors. The only thing that matters is that something is the top search result, not that it's legit."
