What a great resource/asset this would be in a Project Based Learning or flipped classroom let alone a "regular" one.

Dr Stokes's curator insight, March 8, 2015 5:07 PM

How do you curate what you learn? Scoop.it is a valuable tool for all learners both in and out of formal education.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, January 27, 1:42 AM
Yes, I agree Scoop.it is a great tool for curation and more students should be using it.

Are Schools Getting a Big Enough Bang for Their Education Technology Buck?

Are Schools Getting a Big Enough Bang for Their Education Technology Buck? | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Educators, however, generally do not take this approach to technology. Far too often, school leaders fail to consider how technology might dramatically improve teaching and learning, and schools frequently acquire digital devices without discrete learning goals and ultimately use these devices in ways that fail to adequately serve students, schools, or taxpayers.

Boser acknowledges that technology holds the potential to help students with academic achievement, but he points out shortcomings that are currently stifling success.  To start, he argues, states do not evaluate the outcomes they get for their technology spending, charging that currently states are only focused on the presence of the technology and not its return on investment. - See more at: http://www.educationnews.org/technology/report-schools-are-wasting-education-technologys-potential/#sthash.73QYOWmD.dpufBoser acknowledges that technology holds the potential to help students with academic achievement, but he points out shortcomings that are currently stifling success.  To start, he argues, states do not evaluate the outcomes they get for their technology spending, charging that currently states are only focused on the presence of the technology and not its return on investment. - See more at: http://www.educationnews.org/technology/report-schools-are-wasting-education-technologys-potential/#sthash.73QYOWmD.dpufducators, however, generally do not take this approach to technology.

OpenTopic es un servicio de curación de noticias que te permite agregar, monitorizar y filtrar cualquier número de fuentes para publicar y compartir tu selección en los sitios que prefieras desde WordPress,  canales de Social Media o boletín electrónico.

 

Dentro de OpenTopic puedes crear uno o más cuadros de mando "Topic". esencialmente muestra las páginas que donde se agregan nuevos contenidos y el contenido entrante de las fuentes que se especifiquen. Puedes saltar de un panel a otro topic con el clic de su ratón.

 

Para curar historias simplemente tienes que seleccionar los que son relevantes para tu público y se les proporciona un módulo de edición para modificar y personalizar el contenido de la historia. En este punto también se puede seleccionar en los (canales) que la historia será publicada y se puede personalizar la historia de manera diferente para cada uno de ellos.

 

Incluso hay una opción que te permite configurar algún tipo de curación automática, dándole la opción de establecer un conjunto de reglas sencillas, que cuando coincide, dará lugar a la publicación de una noticia.

 

OpenTopic te permite conectar a un mayor número de canales posibles, por lo que es fácil enviar de un lugar a tu sitio web, RSS, redes sociales y newsletter.

 

Por último, pero no menos importante, OpenTopic integra un servicio de análisis completo, capaz de informar y dar a conocer los resultados de su trabajo de curación a través de historias y canales de distribución.

 

 

Mi comentario: Excelente herramienta para redes sociales y community managers, así como especialistas de marketing web que necesitan el soporte eficaz para descubrir noticias relevantes sobre un tema y la publicación fácil de diferentes canales de una plataforma centralizada. Fácil de usar.

I let my business class do presentations on screen-casting.  It gets them a speaking grade for the end of term.  The reason I do this is a) so they can get it out of the way whenever they have time - the deadline is fairly long and b) they tend to take more trouble over it than if it were just an ordinary presentation, in front of the class.
