Last month I shared 40+ networks that you could consider depending on your niche or interests. As part of my commitment to this community, I shared that I will expand on this list throughout 2012. So here is the first addition to that build! The topic- Curation! I thought I would focus on curation because a) I have a favorite site and b) there has been a lot of “press” on Pinterest as a curation tool and as a result I thought the timing was right. However before I list the sites let’s talk curation. What is social media curation? Today, with the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, it can be overwhelming searching for information on the internet. Recently, I had posed the question : What is a social media curator” on Linkedin . Why curate? Curation provides another offering for your on-line audience.

Every day, you can find amazing content on the Web. Due to the multitudes of websites cropping up all over the online world, "information overload" is something we all seem to suffer from. It is easy to feel lost while searching for a particular piece of information you need, especially if you’re looking for a very specific subject. Hence, designers, web developers and the like are racing to come up with ways to present their bits of information so that users like you and me do not waste unnecessary time combing through irrelevant material. That’s where new curation tools come in. What Does Content Curation Mean? Content curation compiles the cream of the crop of the information you are seeking, be it in the form of audio, video, articles or more. Fundamentally, content curation goes through the various online contents, filters it, and then presents it in a way that is easy to read based on the specific subject(s) you are looking for.

This example shows how powerful Book Creator can be as a tool for breaking boundaries. Lisa Johnson is the CEO and founder of TechChef4u, an Apple Distinguished Educator, and a mother of two mobile natives. Lisa also serves the Eanes ISD school district in Austin, Texas as an Educational Technologist supporting their K12 1:1 iPad initiative. Gone are the days of limited tools for students to demonstrate understanding. Today we have an infinite pallet of ways to support students in displaying their application of a concept or skill. A growing trend in classrooms is the ability for students to create and author their own content… many times in the form of a book. The inspiration – History ebook Back in April 2014 I worked with Hill Country Middle School in Austin on a collaborative ebook between 8th grade and 3rd grade students. 8th grade students composed books using Book Creator and Scrap Pad based on historical topics covered in the year. >> Watch the video of the History Book collaboration Creating sign language books in Book Creator Creating sign language books in Book Creator

Distopie Didattiche Per Marx l'essenza dell'uomo è la libertà che si esprime nel "lavoro creativo" con cui egli interagisce con gli altri e l'ambiente modificandoli all'interno di una comunità "utopica" fondata sulla massima evangelica: "Ognuno secondo le sue capacità, a ognuno secondo i suoi bisogni", regola che delinea anche un ideale di comunità educativa basata sull'interazione collaborativa. E come l'educazione, anche il lavoro creativo si colloca in una dimensione che dal presente apre al futuro ed è sempre il futuro protagonista del dibattito pedagogico che si concretizza, sempre più spesso, nei lunghi elenchi / liste di competenze, abilità e capacità che le istituzioni educative dovrebbero assumere quali loro obiettivi per il XXI secolo, ma quale futuro disegnano queste tassonomie? Come possiamo immaginare l'uomo che viene "tratto fuori" e "costruito" attraverso queste indicazioni educative?

I cinque sensi - Esempio di Storify (scuola primaria) ESPERIMENTI :La scatola del tattoOccorrenteuna scatola,sassolini, foglie,biglie eccHo preparato questa scatola dove ho messo conchiglie, palline, foglie, una pigna, dei pezzetti di legno, sassolini, un gomitolo, delle foglie di erba.... A turno i bambini hanno infilato una manina e attraverso il tatto cercato di distinguere che oggetto stavano toccando. Non tutto è stato riconoscibile hanno compreso che certe cose sono riconoscibili usando più sensi, un pò come dicevamo nel laboratorio per le classi prime in questo post sui 5 sensi. Il "compito per casa" è ripetere l'esperimento, preparando una scatolina con oggettini e proporlo ai cuginetti, ai genitori e agli amici. Gli alunni dovranno portare la scatolina alla prossima attività di scienze e provare reciprocamente a riconoscere gli oggetti posti dentro la scatola. Durante questa attività mi sono venuti in mente i giochi nel vicinato, le tasche dei bambini pieni di cose trovate in campagna e scambiate coi compagni.

Let’s face it: creating unique content for every single platform can be taxing for even the most skilled copywriter. The demand to come up with fresh, interesting content and provide great resources for your clients is huge, and it’s tough to keep up with.
