Twitter wasn't designed with teaching in mind but Rosie Miles finds it an ideal way to encourage students to get under the skin of academic texts.

New update for Mozilla Firefox

New update for Mozilla Firefox | Online Curating & Social Learning Tools and Applications | Scoop.it

Mozilla releases Firefox 14 and encrypts Google searches by default

Adds improved mouse recognition in games

SOFTWARE DEVELOPER Mozilla has released Firefox 14 for desktop operating systems.
Mozilla's Firefox web browser has received its six-week update with Firefox 14 automatically encrypting Google searches and supporting the Pointer Lock API. Mozilla has also included support for fullscreen mode in Mac OS X 10.7.


Mozilla said it encrypts Google search data by default, adding that users can now easily verify the identity of a web site by clicking on an icon to the left of the URL. According to Mozilla, the addition of search encryption is particularly handy for those using Firefox on wireless connections.

Web-Based Information Organization Tools for the Online Classroom | Online Universities | Online Curating & Social Learning Tools and Applications | Scoop.it
By Justin Marquis Ph.D. There’s a great big World (Wide Web) out there, and it’s hard to keep track of everything you find in it.

 

Fortunately there are a bunch of tools available to let the Internet remember for you. Curation and annotation tools allow you to not only "remember" a web site, but also to take notes about the pages you’ve visited, save them right on the pages themselves, and even share them with others.
