Why Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool |

Why Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | | MOOC4teachers | collates work from online publications using an online magazine format, and this visual impact alone makes it very effective.


The additional appeal of broadcasting from a hub allows me to tap into and share with my ed tech networks, which is why I find myself using it more often during time constraints.


First of all, it’s powerful–it incorporates multiple elements of familiar social media tools. But it’s also very flexible–the mobile app is quite functional for both iPhone and Android, and a toolbar plugin can be installed on browser windows.’s athleticism makes it a time-saver; educators and students will quickly grasp its value in content gathering.


Additionally, using will meet multiple standards (Common Core and NETS-S) across the curriculum. Students use critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning.

Why use scoopit?

Peter Mellow's comment, March 5, 2013 6:02 PM
Tim, we compared a number of curation tools using masternewmedia's "The 15 Basic Traits of a News / Content Curation System" as a guide and Scoopit ticked most of the boxes. My only worry about it is that currently there not an export or backup facility, hopefully something that they are working on. For me, it is the ease of use, if the UI is good then that makes life a lot easier! :-)
