Make-your-own-ebooks platform: Aerbook Maker | School Librarians | Scoop.it

I’ve spent the past few months reporting on platforms that help school librarians make ebooks available to their patrons. But what about librarians and other educators who want to go beyond a read-only experience and enable their students to easily create, share—and even market—their very own slick, tablet-ready graphical ebooks and mobile apps?

RebelMouse: Smart Curation for the Classroom - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education

RebelMouse: Smart Curation for the Classroom - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education | School Librarians | Scoop.it

Undoubtedly Twitter is a powerful communication tool. However, using Twitter in the classroom presents challenges. Simply embedding a tweet stream on blogs or webpages is not enough because all tweets from our account are included, not only the ones relevant to students. Embedded tweet streams are also not particularly attractive or informative – especially for the Twitter novices. Though not targeted specifically at academia, RebelMouse presents an interesting solution to this problem, by intelligent curation of social media wrapped in a great design.
