’ve been investigating ways to curate conversations that take place on the web, via social media and in other places. I’m doing so at this point mainly to be able to display some of the great conversations that happened in the two New Media Studies first year seminars (#nmsf09 and #nms_f10) where I was the Twitter-embedded librarian. So far I’ve been looking at Storify.com (where I have put my name in for an invite), Memolane.com, and Curated.by, which I have signed up for and begun to play around with.

I like this idea of visual literacy. We know by using a variety of strategies in the classroom we teach to more learning styles. This seems like a fun way for students to use the inquiry method.
Liz Becker's comment, May 3, 2012 1:07 AM
As a history teacher, I often use visual primary sources. As you mentioned, visuals are a great way to tap into different learning styles. They are also a less stressful way for students to learn the technique of document analysis. Once they feel they can do it well with visuals, we often move on to text sources. This type of scaffolding seems to work well.
