Concretamente, ofrece 15 apps gratuitas para que cualquiera que desee aprender inglés pueda usar en su aprendizaje; son muy variadas y se pueden utilizar para diferentes destrezas, como la comprensión y la expresión oral, además de para trabajar contenidos léxicos y gramaticales, como las question tags o los verbos frasales.

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | Social Media Pearls

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | Social Media Pearls | Techy Touchy Tools | Scoop.it

This is a very precise guide to using Scoop.it that Shirley Williams published on Social Media Pearls. We love the way she shared her introduction to Scoop.it:

"First, Let me share a story on my introduction to Scoop.it. I wrote a blogpost on “storytelling”. I received a trackback to Scoop.it. I followed it to find a curated post by Karen Dietz sharing her perspective and summary of my post with my link still intact. I used this new platform to thank her and started following her web-magazine (Just Story It). The outcome: Karen gained a new targeted follower and I gained new traffic to my site. Another curator, Martin Gysler did exactly the same; I really liked his posts and I started to follow him but this time I joined Scoop.it!"

A lot of you have commented on why you liked Scoop.it first because it was simple but stocked to it because of the community it provided. We love to see that happen!
