Say Goodbye to Pinterest and Hello to Pearltrees A few weeks ago, I began to use a new service called Pearltrees, and its accompanying iPad app. Since that time, I have explored the service, shared and gathered pearls, and raved about it to every person I can think of. Now its time in the spotlight on iSource is well-deserved. The MagPi Editorial Welcome to The MagPi – a free to download community driven magazine packed to the brim with all things Raspberry Pi. As you can see from the cover, issue 17 has gone all robotic! We feature a great article from the team at Dexter Industries taking a look at their clever kit: the BrickPi. You may recognise the project from Kickstarter and the Foundation site. It is ideal for all levels of user and a great way to get your Raspberry Pi moving.

Pearltrees: An overview Save bookmarks, documents, files, ebooks, PDF, photos, notes and more. Organize them into beautiful collections. Explore and share millions of contents on your favorite topics. Curating the Best of Tech and Social Media for Families Many people search the web, read content every day and share that content. While advances in search technology has made finding information easier and easier, saving and organizing information in a way that captures a story or conversation can still be very challenging. I just posted on Techmamas.com about my first experience with Pearltrees.com; I was on a Traveling Geeks trip to LeWeb and Pearltrees was one of the French companies we met. Being a visual person, the Pearltrees online application offered me the tools to capture and organize online information in a visual format that also reflected the storyline behind the issue being discussed. I decided that my next step was to use it and see what happens. What happened – is that adding content to Pearltrees became part of my daily workflow.

The MagPi issue 17, out now October’s edition of The MagPi, the Raspberry Pi community magazine, which is written, edited and produced by Pi users for Pi users, is available for free download now. If you’re a robotics hobbyist, you’ll find lots to occupy yourself in this month’s issue: there’s a thorough discussion of the BrickPi, a new addon from Dexter Industries which will allow you to connect your Pi to LEGO NXT motors, and pointers to projects you can make yourself with the setup, interfacing with Python and with Scratch. My favourite project this month is from Jonathan Chetwynd (who posts here as Peepo). He’s used a head-mounted Raspberry Pi camera board to make an eye-tracking device. (I will not spoil this month’s best MagPi photo for you, which demonstrates what Jonathan calls “load balancing issues” when trying to use a pair of glasses as a mount for a Pi and its accessory bits and pieces.)

Product Reviews on EdSurge Pearltrees allows anyone to organize their interests in an easily customizable and searchable way. Users upload items or link to them from the internet, and can connect with their friends and others who share similar interest. Pearltrees is free for individuals to use; additional features are available for purchase. You can automatically import and organize your Twitter and Facebook posts In 2009, Pearltrees started out as a bookmarking service with a quirky interface. Since then, the service has added a number of new curation features like support for uploading files, taking notes and managing your photos. Today the company is announcing a major new feature with the launch of its Smartcloud service. The idea here is to allow Pearltrees to automatically import and organize your tweets and Facebook posts (as well as files stored in Dropbox and Google Drive). Having a backup service for your social media posts isn’t all that exciting and novel, but Smartcloud takes this data and then automatically organizes it by topic.

Pearltrees Develops its New Interface Further with 'Meaning' Content and file curation and sharing platform Pearltrees has been updated today with new features that include ‘Meaning’, a new organization system. ‘Meaning’ is based on a traditional grid and allows users to drag and drop content into collections that can be shared with others and collaborated on with real-time synchronization. Pearltrees tells us that it hopes the new layout will encourage more collaboration between users. The company may have a point – a conventional grid could well take less time for new users to adapt to than Pearltrees’ old ‘tree of pearls‘ look that it moved away from earlier this year, even if it’s not quite as unique to look at. The France-based company’s video below shows Meaning in action:

You can always get more hubs, one for every 4 miners!

Math Pearltree PearlTrees is a collaborative website to store thoughts, links, videos, and notes. Teachers can easily post an idea or "pearl" on a specific topic or a post a series of topics in a unit of study on their "tree". Using PearlTrees is an excellent way to collaborate professionally with other teachers in Ohio and beyond because all “trees” are public unless you have the premium account. For every “pearl” anyone can post comments and collaborate with other professionals. People can also join together to form a team so they can contribute to a common topic.

The Pearltrees wikipedia page is a great place to start if you are curious about using the Pearltrees curation platform. This page lets you know the history of the site, and why it is used. by kathleenfialka Oct 26
