Top 10 Teacher Tools for Digital Curation | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Top 10 Teacher Tools for Digital Curation | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching & Learning in the digital age | Scoop.it

This is my fourth year in educational blogging with more than 4000 posts published here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. This learning journey I embarked on a few years ago has been really rewarding in terms of building a powerful community of teachers and educators from whom I have learned a great deal of things. I am really so thankful to everyone of you for giving this chance to connect with you and learn from each other.

The more educational web tools I review and the more posts I write here everyday the better I become at finding, managing, and sharing digital content; in short, the skillful I become at digital curation. In today's post I am sharing with you some of my favourite web tools I often use to curate digital content. I am hoping these selections would help you enjoy your browsing experience way better than you used to be.

Five lessons, each is differentiated as Beginner / Intermediate / Advanced. Mapped to three sets of national standards. Excellent way to get started teaching search skills. (I know there's no room in your curriculum to do this. Perhaps that's what's wrong with your curriculum?)Seize the opportunity to help your students develop real 21st Century Skills.  

Stephanie Sapp's curator insight, April 27, 2014 8:14 AM

I like that it includes AASL Standards.  We must start teaching technology standards in every class.
