One note from the article regarding content curation:


Curation will guide content

Some argue that readers no longer want curated content, however we believe people always have and always will look to trusted sources for guidance, and that’s where books and magazines will continue to add value.

Wideo allows you to create short, animated videos and Common Craft like videos in your web browser. Today,Wideo announced that you can now upload your own audio files into your video projects. This means that you could record a voiceover and add it to your video.

With Wideo's new voiceover tool you could really have your students creating explanatory videos in the Common Craft style. The art of Common Craft videos is the way in which confusing topics are boiled down to a concise explanation. If your students can do the same with a topic in your class, they can prove that they know the material.

The Future of Advertising: 'Pay-Per-Gaze' Is Just the Beginning

The Future of Advertising: 'Pay-Per-Gaze' Is Just the Beginning | Way Cool Tools | Scoop.it

Advertising is going to change more in the next 20 years than it has in the last 100. If you need proof of that, just look at the patent Google was granted Thursday for a Google Glass-based ad system.
