Twitter as a tool for learningScoop.it | Curating for eLearning | Scoop.it
Social media often gets a bad rap for being a driving force behind people falling out of touch, neglecting in-person relationships, and reducing productivity for people around the world.
Keith Tyler-Smith's insight:

I'm one of those that think that Twitter deserves its bad rap, but maybe its not Twitter, those that Twit :-)

Here's Why Google and Facebook Might Completely Disappear in the Next 5 Years - Forbes | Curating for eLearning | Scoop.it
Web 1.0 companies never got social. Web 2.0 companies will never get mobile. Mobile companies will never get what's coming next.

A very thought provoking article and I have to say I think Eric Jackson is on the money. Exactly what this means for those of us in the education and training business - who can tell - I think we live in interesting times!!(KTS)

A Moodle 2 version of the Moodle Tool Guide

A Moodle 2 version of the Moodle Tool Guide | Curating for eLearning | Scoop.it
Many of you will have used and maybe still use Joyce Seitzinger’s Moodle Tool Guide (@catspyjamasnz) which she released nearly two years ago. As her blog mentions since then people have released twelve translations of the guide into Basque, Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan, Croatian, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Norwegian, Portuguese, Slovene and Spanish. There has also been some adaptations for specific institutions and also for colour blind users and other LMS like blackboard and Dokoes. * All of these variations are linked from her blog.A Moodle 2 version
So last year I had put together a Moodle 2 version which included the tools as they were now in Moodle 2. I had not released it, but as I have given it to some people in the meantime, I thought I better put it up so people can use it or comment on it, suggest changes and so on. Everyone will have their own take on what should be in it or not, and rightly so. This is probably just another start point for 2 – perhaps.

Content Curation: Classroom Applications

Content Curation: Classroom Applications | Curating for eLearning | Scoop.it
here are available a variety of free tools in various formats that let you easily tag/save sites, articles, images, videos, presentations, etc. into a collection that you can share and have conversations about with other users. I’ve been spending some time at Pinterest, which is filled with inspiring images of recipes, crafts, clothes, housewares, quotes, etc. It’s like scrolling through an interactive magazine, where you can easily “pin” things you see/like that have been pinned by others, leave comments on other’s pins, as well as add new content to your own collections. Some similar sites include: Snip.it, Clipboard, Themeefy.com, bagtheweb and Scoop.it!

Mark Smithers has written a thoughtful piece and is spot on with it's central arguement that where technologically driven innovation threatens the deeply embedded business model of academic institutions, change is slow and often painful.
