Robin Good's curator insight, November 6, 2013 4:55 PM


The Public Domain Review, a project of the Open Knowledge Foundation founded by Adam Green and Jonathan Gray, is a free online journal collecting and showcasing the most interesting and unique copyright-free works available on the Internet. 


The Guardian reports: "...the site and its newsletter showcase the best and quirkiest texts, images and films the internet has to offer. 


...A model of digital curation."


The mission of the PDR is to "celebrate and showcase online material which is openly licensed, and thus free for people to share and re-use for any purpose".


My comment: A treasure trove of unique, rare and valuable pieces of content organized in helpful collections. A gate to discovery of otherwise unfindable gems.



Free to use.

5 Free Social Bookmarking Tools I Use Every Day - Edudemic

5 Free Social Bookmarking Tools I Use Every Day - Edudemic | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
Most people I talk to have some sort of what might best be called an online routine. You know, the when and how of approaching what you need and want to see on the web each day. Personally, I take a scroll through my email, a few social media sites, and a couple of news …
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:

Busy people seem to like lists. Anything that breaks down a complex set of ideas into a handy formula makes life easier for us. This list is a point in case. Using a few social bookmarking tools can help you to keep abreast of innovation and the latest news. While some of these are tools I personally do not use any more ( Delicious, for example) they all have merit. I would add an RSS feed, something like Flipboard or Pulse probably just so I could have it all coming together each day in one place. I would also add my Netvibes page. Setting it as a browser homepage has saved ( and most likely wasted!) time for me.

Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:

Create some data, punk! This,post brings the DIY ethos of early punk to the use of data on the internet. Sounds a bit simplistic? Well it is. The data does need to be verifiable and reasonable and you do need the know how to put it in a readily digestible form. That said, this post does offer some advice for people wishing to do more with data online.

OneNote now on Mac, free everywhere, and service powered | Office Blogs

OneNote now on Mac, free everywhere, and service powered | Office Blogs | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
When we started OneNote we set out to revolutionize the way people capture, annotate, and recall all the ideas, thoughts, snippets and plans in their life. As many of you have attested, OneNote is the ultimate extension for your brain, but it’s not complete if it’s not instantly available everywhere. We’ve already made a lot of progress in that direction with our mobile, tablet and online web experiences. But there was still a gap. People frequently asked us for OneNote on Mac, and for more ways to capture content.
Via Nik Peachey, Bonnie Bracey Sutton
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:
Given that I have a Mac at home and a windows machine for work this news got me very excited. I have already downloaded it and am in the process of syncing all of my files as we speak. I believe that One Note is one of the more powerful tools of the Office suite.
