Flipboard As a Textbook Replacement | The Thinking Stick | Teacher Education | Scoop.it

"OK…so let me clarify that title. I honestly think textbooks are on their way out…or at least I hope they are. Really it should read “Flipboard as core curation artifact for classrooms” but that wouldn’t have you here reading now would it. "

I love Flipboard and use it as a supplementary textbook filled with literature notes that I have gleaned off the Internet for my pupils or that I have created myself on Google Drive. I have connected my Twitter account to Flipboard, so I can send tweets of my material, which can then easily be flipped into a magazine of my choice.

With its magazine function Flipboard is an attractive cross platform means of curating and delivering content fro teaching purposes.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, July 8, 2014 1:13 AM

Student created books generated from high quality collaborative curation strategies seems a very valid entry point to active learning.

For those that are lifelong learners  and in the learning mode as opposed to the knowing mode.  Let me count the ways to get a message across no matter what the age of the student is.

Rocio Watkins's curator insight, February 22, 2014 10:34 PM

Marzano's famous "Nine" continue to be the topic of many professional development agendas, and continue to deliver research-based and improved student outcomes.  A "must-know" for the teaching vocation.
