Feedly: organize, read and share what matters to you.
John Dalziel's insight:
Feedly has recently added some new interesting features to improve the way users save, read and share web content. 
With these new features, users will be able to create boards, highlight salient part of stories, and add notes. 
Users are in control of... 
  - which publications they follow,
  - which blogs they follow,
  - which YouTube Channels they follow,
  - which Google Keyword Alerts they monitor,
  - which sources they turn into easy-to-read feeds and
  - which content from their organisation's internal portals, content management systems, and SaaS applications they access securely. 
All that content can be organised into easy to read collections and, if required, shared via Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, email and more. 
Such posts can be scheduled with Hootsuite or Buffer. 
Ideal for Subject centred collaboration where Educational Practitioners can curate, comment and prioritise the best articles/resources/etc., about specific topics and ideas. 
Must be worth a closer look.

JellyBean Writer and JellyBean Scoop

JellyBeanScoop Autopub description
John Dalziel's insight:

Jellybean Writer and Jellybean Scoop could be good resources for ESOL/ESL/EFL functional skills etc. Learners could read (four reading levels) fun and interesting news stories on Jellybean Scoop then write their own stories about the topics covered in the articles they've read.
When writing, learners can...
   ▪ import pictures from their computers and
   ▪ write captions for each image.
A variety of layout templates, background colours, and fonts are available for them to use.
The resulting stories can be...

   ▪ saved online or

   ▪ downloaded and printed.
If practitioners feel that picture books are too simple for their learners, they can skip using pictures and select one of the text only templates for the pages in their books.
NOTE: 1: Users have to create an account to access the reading questions and writing tools on Jellybean Scoop. 2: Practitioners who create accounts for themselves can also create and manage accounts for their learners.
