Explaining the experiment

Explaining the experiment | Australian Curriculum - English | Scoop.it

This scoopit began as a private test. I intended to feature only content discovered via the scoopit  'Suggested Content' search. 

 

I am now expanding this to include 'rescooping' from the scoopit topics of other users I follow.

 

Of course, your suggestions are welcome too. I want to see how much useful content comes my way without having to leave the scoopit site.

 

 

Jean Anning's insight:

17/02/2013 - I can't help myself - I can't resist a good site - I WILL include gems from those wonderful people in my twitter world. Thanks folks :)

 

15/02/2014 - Do you need websites to support a specific area of your teaching program? Contact me (I'm easy to find on twitter) and I may be able to help :)
