Auto-Curate Your Twitter Stream: Twylah Showcases Your Best Content "In Context"

Auto-Curate Your Twitter Stream: Twylah Showcases Your Best Content "In Context" | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it
Intressant verktyg för att samlaTwitter nyheter. Robin Good: Twylah is a web service which "auto-curates" your Twitter stream by generating a full web site which auto-organizes and visualizes your tweeted content around a set of specific topics.

 

Here is a real-world example of my own tweet-stream "auto-curated" by Twilah: http://www.twylah.com/robingood 

Impressive. Key Features:

 

- Harnesses the SEO power of all your tweets by grouping them into relevant topics

 

- Creates a more engaging space for your followers and fans 

 

- Provides a high-value content platform on auto-pilot for any author

 

- Facilitates subscriptions to your Twitter channel

 

- Integrates a PowerTweet function which not only allows to Tweet from any web page, but it "auto-creates" a  thematic web page just-in-time around your very tweet topic.

 

(Now that Twylah has kicked out a few bugs that were preventing Scoop.it based curators like me to extract the best from this new service, I am very impressed by what I see.)


This is one of the best examples of how much MORE value can be extracted by "curating", organizing and "presenting" appropriately what IS ALREADY out there. 

 

Check some of Twylah "featured" pages here: http://www.twylah.com/featured 

 

If you want to drive engagement beyond the single tweet, and show others what you cover and are all about, at-a-glance, I am hard-pressed in finding something better than Twylah.


If you use Twitter and you share lots of valuable news across different topics, I strongly suggest you request an invite to Twylah right now: http://www.twylah.com/

Wow Robin - really cool and I appreciate you exposing twylah to me! I've already applied. Should be a great way to engage people. Are you somehow now sending people to twylah instead of your twitter home page?
Robin Good's comment, January 14, 2012 8:48 AM
Hey Mitch, first my compliments to your great channel. Great stuff!

Yeah, Twylah looks good. I'm glad you have applied, with your content it is going to be great as well.

If you tweet with the Twylah "Power Tweet" function your readers are automatically taken to your Twylah property, but otherwise yes, I am going to see what are all of the best ways to take them there.
planetMitch's comment, January 14, 2012 9:16 AM
Thanks Robin, I'm impressed by your channel as well, your success is one of the main reasons why I've ended up loving scoop.it and am now a 'business' user and have integrated it into my own domain now.

I've been doing 'curation' with my blog for 3 years, but now scoop.it has helped me solve a problem that I haven't been able to deal with - and that is a way to share news that doesn't 'qualify' for me to spend time writing a full blog post about.

The 'power tweet' is a brilliant idea and one I can see using a lot - maybe too much.

I might like to see twylah expand to do one thing scoop does well - and that's to let me post the power tweet to facebook, g+ etc.

Thanks again for exposing me to so many great ideas!

Did you know libraries can facilitate learning for most, if not all, of these skills? Ask your librarian how he or she can help you instill these skills and values in your students.

Russell Taylor's curator insight, January 23, 5:40 AM

Seems to me that most of the key skills are covered here for the modern workforce, so why don't we see educational institutions taking a lot more notice of these and make the necessary investment?

21st-Century Libraries: The Learning Commons - Edutopia

21st-Century Libraries: The Learning Commons - Edutopia | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it

#Libraries have existed since approximately 2600 BCE as an archive of recorded knowledge. From tablets and scrolls to bound books, they have cataloged resources and served as a locus of knowledge. Today, with the digitization of content and the ubiquity of the internet, information is no longer confined to printed materials accessible only in a single, physical location. Consider this: Project Gutenberg and its affiliates make over 100,000 public domain works available digitally, and Google has scanned over 30 million books through its library project.

Libraries are reinventing themselves as content becomes more accessible online and their role becomes less about housing tomes and more about connecting learners and constructing knowledge. Cushing Academy in Ashburnham, Massachusetts has been in the vanguard of this transition since 2009, when it announced its plans for a "bookless" library. A database of millions of digital resources superseded their 20,000-volume collection of books, and a café replaced the circulation desk. With this transition, not only did the way in which students consumed content change, but also how they utilized the library space. Rather than maintain a quiet location for individual study, the school wanted to create an environment for "collaboration and knowledge co-construction."

How Can Your Librarian Help Bolster Brain-Based Teaching Practices? - Mind/Shift

How Can Your Librarian Help Bolster Brain-Based Teaching Practices? - Mind/Shift | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it
nquiry-based learning has been around in education circles for a long time, but many teachers and schools gradually moved away from it during the heyday of No Child Left Behind. The pendulum is beginning to swing back towards an inquiry-based approach to instruction thanks to standards such as Common Core State Standards for math and English Language Arts, the Next Generation Science Standards and the College, Career and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards. Transitioning to this style of teaching requires students to take a more active role and asks teachers to step back into a supportive position. It can be a tough transition for many students and their teachers, but turning to the school librarian for support could make the transition a little easier.

How To Create Interactive Lessons for the iPad - Daily Genius | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it

"As a teacher, you are used to create your own lessons. The xerox, Microsoft Word, and PowerPoint are your trusted companions. But how can you effectively use iPads in your lessons?

The ebooks provided by publishers are mostly static and just not interesting enough for today’s students. Some educational apps are great, but finding the rights ones, figuring out how they work and getting them installed on all student devices can be a hassle.

Aren’t there easy ways to create your own materials for iPad? Yes, there are! Try these:"
