Robin Good's curator insight, March 18, 2013 7:05 AM



Bill French has just released and made available for purchase a Google Docs based mini-app he has developed, which allows anyone to curate online content without needing to have a website or blog.


The app whic is called Qyurate, allows to capture and edit / curate content found on the web, to archive and store it by sending to a dedicated email, and to publish it via RSS.


More specifically:


Instead of emailing your annotated content items to a blogging platform such as Tumblr, email them to qyurate@gmail.com.


A running process at qyurate@gmail.com email address will see your posts, parse them into your available content for your feeds, and organize them by tags.


Tagging your posts is achieved by adding a name-value pair in parenthesis at the end of the email subject line.

Example:

The Art of QR Codes (qyurate:entconnect)


In the above example, this curated post will be categorized under “entconnect”. It is also possible to tag a post for use in multiple categories.


This makes it simple to dispatch curated items to more than one destination via separate RSS feeds.



Price: you name a price starting from $10

P.S.: Unfortunately the description and info about this new tool is quite concise and the "demo" provided on the landing page is accessible only by those who have previously bought an eBook by Bill French ($8).

* What I have done to get access without buying, is to provide a fictitious PIN when asked, and it seems you can go through it without problems.

Creating Book Trailers

Creating Book Trailers | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it

GwynethJones's insight:

My comment on this awesome blog post:


I'm a little scared right now, Justin. How did you tap into my Dropbox? Or are we on the same brainwave. Because, I'm working on the METC Technado preso (natch) and some (like a LOT) of these ideas are being mentioned. And honestly, you elucidate them WAY better!
I hope you don't mind if I give a shout out at METC! Can you finish the preso for me now? LOL  

I would also add "No Common Education Fad Left Behind" Be daring, adapt, adopt, transform, but don't always transplant. It's easy to prune a tree - it's harder to re-grow a forest.

So like, OMG......Do you have ESPN!?

Gone are the days when educators could carefully choose a wide selection of books for the school library, and then expect students' learning would be well-rounded as a result of those inputs. Today there fabulous digitized learning materials, and only some are books. Check out the types of resources being curated, organized and rendered retrievable by the Digital Public Library of America. Are K-12 school libraries on board?

The View From the Shelves...: Choosing to Use Technology

The View From the Shelves...: Choosing to Use Technology | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
GwynethJones's insight:

The sentence "For many of our students, school is the only place where opportunities to work with technology occurs." is very significant.

It seems that in all the folderol with the flashy education trends and hot topics, flipping, making, genrefying, etc. (And don't get me wrong, I'm a fan!) When it boils down to it, the digital divide still exists in this country. It's not the tool, it's the skill. It's not the iPad or device, its the application - of thought, of ideas, of skills.

Thank you for reminding us all that our kiddos NEED us to give them these experiences, these skills, and exposure to new technologies.


And librarians are the BEST educators in the building be both a technology and learning leader.

Cheers!

I really would like at least 4 iMac desktops to do iMovie editing, video production, and graphic design. I know that's not considered cool anymore w/ the Makey Makey movement but dag, it's what I want.
