I would have to call this the "Joseph Campbell Lite" Infographic - still, a useful resource if only a reminder of the classic monomythic storytelling recipe.

StartMe is an excellent free start page builder which allows anyone to create public (or private) start pages containing bookmarks, links and RSS feeds, organized in groups and easily editable.


StartMe creates clutter-free, well designed and highly scannable editable start pages where you can easily add, edit, move around and re-order and group your favorite links and bookmarks in any way you want.


You can create as many start pages as you want and you can choose to start either from a pre-populated links and feeds page that can be edited and customized or completely from scratch.


Groups and individual items (links and RSS feeds) can be easily edited and dragged around easily. It is possible to decide how many news stories appear in a feed list and you can even switch on a "river of news" option that will combine chronologically all the news of a list of feeds.


It is also possible to integrate a search engine for each start page that will search using your search engine of choice.


StartMe supports OPML allowing full export and import functions with any bookmark collection or RSS feeds list.


Extension for Firefox and Google Chrome are available.


My comment: I can't recommend this tool enough. Easy, fast, effective and elegant. It's a breeze to use and it's so damn useful for creating start pages for a thousand different uses: tools lists organized in groups, suggested sites to visit subdivided in sub-topics, collections of people profiles in specific sectors, etc.  


Ad free.


Free to use.

Free? Easy? Sign me up! The more formative assessments I have, the better I know that my teaching equals student learning. This tool is so simple, I may actually use it. Even better, I may have my students create their own learning assessments.

Storify Has Competition, and It’s Called Brickflow - 10,000 Words

Storify Has Competition, and It’s Called Brickflow - 10,000 Words | Technology in the library curriculum | Scoop.it
Storify Has Competition, and It’s Called Brickflow

..

Brickflow allows users to search for hashtags and compile corresponding pieces of content (bricks) found across Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Tumblr into a workable story. You can drag and drop each tile where you want it, piecing together a sensible visual narrative, and voila — you’ve got embeddable and sharable content for the Web. If the topic doesn’t need to be chronological, you can “remix” your flow and rearrange the story.

Crowdfunded via Indiegogo (with a $10,000 goal) and led by a team that includes a former Harvard University-funded startup incubator participant, a man who worked for Prezi, and a filmmaker, Brickflow released its public beta just days ago. They say they are the first social media curator allowing users to string together multiple Instagram videos in a story format. That feature alone could be a game changer for journalists.

Bring back the illustrated book

Bring back the illustrated book | Technology in the library curriculum | Scoop.it

Some of our best novelists have extremely visual styles, and great, faithful illustrations would only intensify the reader’s reactions to their writing.

Some children's books tell the entire story with pictures! Illus. add so  . . . much to a story!

We are becoming a society that only wants to "see" not "read".
Barbara Ford's comment, February 28, 2013 5:24 PM
While some just look at pictures...and others read only text...the people who experience the best of the author's and illustrator's work are those who can bring about the uniquely wonderful marriage of the two. I think it is incumbent upon our generation to be sure that those proceeding us don't lose the richness to be gained from both. Mr. Sacks does an admirable job in making that point.
Deanna Dahlsad's comment, February 28, 2013 6:52 PM
It's not about reading less; all the bogus complaints about "the Internet ruining reading" are silly. Magazines, for example, are doing quite well. Illustrations have been missing due to cost. Returning them is certainly a quality issue.
