eduClipper - curate and organise digital content

eduClipper - curate and organise digital content | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:
Educlipper is a website where Educational Practitioners can curate and organise digital content. 
 Educlipper has been designed specifically for educators and by an educator. 
To set up an Educlipper account is pretty easy and can be done in a few clicks and once logged in registered users can instantly start adding content . 
There is also a handy Educlipit button that users can install on their browser to bookmark digital content they come across while browsing the web. 
Another good feature that Educlipper offers to its users is that users can work collaboratively on the content they curate from the web, they can also organise it into educlipboards and share it with others - learners for example.

AnswerThePublic: a free visual keyword research & content ideas tool

AnswerThePublic: a free visual keyword research & content ideas tool | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Answer the Public is a Keyword Tool for generating content ideas, that's well worth checking out. Be warned the “seeker”, on the home page is animated. Strange but don’t get distracted.
As with other keyword tools, users just enter their keywords and the “seeker” will suggest content ideas in seconds.
It’s a UK-based tool, but users can select a different country from the dropdown:
For me the best part is – the results come back in visual form. There’ll be a “wheel” of question keywords related to their topic, organized into questions that begin with...
► where,
► which,
► who,
► what,
► when,
► why,
► how and
► are.
Practitioners and/or Learners could 'try' answering these 'question keywords' with content; an effective way to demonstrate expertise.
Answer the Public also returns a visualization of keyword phrases containing prepositions...
► like,
► for,
► with,
► without,
► near,
► to and
► versus.
I like this tool because question keywords and phrases with words like “versus” raise awareness of Problems/Issues that Learning Provider target audiences are having and that they may then resolve.
Suggestion for you to try - "online courses"

Math Open Reference: Table of Contents

Math Open Reference: Table of Contents | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

I curated this way back in 2011 but it's moved on alot since then.

This open reference project has the goal of providing high-quality content, for learning environments, to be used via browsers; free of charge to the end user, and provide numerous benefits over paper textbooks.
Using interactive tools and compelling animations, Math Open Reference provides an engaging way to learn and explore mathematics.

Practitioners have new ways to teach, and the learners a new way to learn that is both fun and engaging.
Try it out...
This project has completed the prototype stage, and production of the final version has begun.

The Table of contents can be accessed here...
