Organize The Best Of The Web In Your Own Visual Library On Pearltrees [Chrome]

Organize The Best Of The Web In Your Own Visual Library On Pearltrees [Chrome]
Just a month back we had a brief but interesting discussion where a reader asked about Pearltrees and what was good about their visual way of curating web content. I had heard about Pearltrees before, but had never really got down to using it. The one phrase that has been consistently used to describe it is – visually pleasing. Now, we know that the more content we bookmark and stuff away for reading later, the more onerous it becomes to manage them. Social bookmarking helps to tackle information overload, but its management actually falls upon us. Pearltrees is a more natural way to process all we save and share the best of the web. Please Note: In Pearltrees everything is public and collaborative by default. Pearltrees on Chrome Pearltrees has browser extensions and add-ons for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer. You start by creating your account and profile on Pearltrees. Turn Interesting Web Pages into Pearls Clicking on a pearl expands it to a detail window.

Content Curation With Pearltrees EduTip: Content Curation with Pearltrees by Linnea Sudduth Ward Content curation tools—or tools designed to collect, store, and share ideas on a particular topic—are great tools for allowing your students to delve more deeply into a given concept. Perhaps the most well-known content curation platform is Pinterest, which boasts 1.36 unique visitors a day. A less popular tool, though perhaps a more useful tool for education, is Pearltrees. Indeed, Pearltrees is such a useful platform that the Department of Academic Innovation & eLearning created an entire project (the Instructional Design Core Toolset) with this platform.

Tech Alert: concept maps « ScribbleLive Whether you are covering breaking news, conferences or a product launch in real time, preparing concept maps – or mind maps – beforehand and publishing them when they’re relevant to the event is a great way to enhance storytelling and user engagement. One snappy example of such a tool is Pearltrees. Pearltrees is a social resource that creates an almost unlimited ‘pearltree’ of linked data, articles, images and video.

Journal of Neural Engineering Dominique M Durand et al 2014 J. Neural Eng. 11 020201 Neural engineers have made significant, if not remarkable, progress in interfacing with the nervous system in the last ten years. In particular, neuromodulation of the brain has generated significant therapeutic benefits [1–5].

Pearltrees: a multifunction visual bibliographic tool While preparing the bibliography on energy security foresight, I was wondering if it would be useful to also apply a visually appealing approach to bibliographies, which would then be conceptualized as a product. As usual, there is no simple answer to this question, and if the classical bibliography will most probably have to be kept for a while, Pearltrees also appears as a perfect bibliographic tool. Because delivery of product must consider both the product’s material support and the recipient or customer, then the traditional way to write a bibliography will probably have to be kept for some time. Indeed, for anything that uses paper and print as support, the usual, alphabetical bibliography is best.It is furthermore the most practical way to find a reference as quickly as possible, especially for long bibliographies. Indeed, for long and complex topics and thus references, we enter the categorization problem, as usual. The potential improvements could be

One Prep A Week Part One- Use PearlTrees To Link Them All As teachers, we often struggle to help students make use of brainstorming techniques that help generate ideas for an assignment, project workflow, or get the big picture on complex subjects. We encourage students to make graphical representations of related information with flow charts, venn diagrams, or other infographics. Grouping students together at a table can result in some useful output, but getting kids to stay focused on abstractions is difficult. This is all the more challenging when the participants lack any meaningful background information that allows them to produce *original* thoughts.

Challenge 5 - Curate Resources using Pearltrees If you listened to the episode of the Instructional Tech Talk podcast that discussed curating content in the classroom you know how valuable curating resources can be both with students and for your own resources. Social bookmarking has become a huge activity – spreading many genres and via many platforms. It has revolutionized the way in which we share and find information. Like I mentioned, there are many ways to participate in social content curation and each way looks a little different. For the purpose of this challenge, we will be using the popular curation tool Pearltrees to begin our content curation adventure. Don’t worry – it is easy, fun, and extremely addictive. Pearltrees Gives Itself A Visual Refresh With New Customization Options, Major Redesign Coming Soon Pearltrees, the Paris-based curation and discovery service, just launched a new version of its web and mobile apps. The update introduces a visual refresh with full-screen images that now automatically appear as backgrounds for all of your pearltrees – the mind map-like tree structures that you use for organizing your collections on the site. While the service previously featured a very abstract representation of the bookmarks, images, texts and other items you save on the site, the new version now shows you more realistic ‘pearls.” A pearl, the company says, now “presents a view of what it contains, making what’s inside immediately recognizable.” This, as Pearltrees co-founder and CEO Patrice Lamothe puts it, “conveys more emotion and more information at a glance as people explore their libraries.” In addition to this, Pearltrees now also features improved zooming capabilities and better image formatting.

Mind Reading (Neural Decoding) Goes Mainstream Surfdaddy Orca November 9, 2009 In the new movie, The Men Who Stare at Goats, reporter Bob Wilton confronts Special Forces operator Lyn Cassady, “I’ve heard that you’re a psychic spy.” Lyn later comments, “We’re Jedi. We don’t fight with our guns, we fight with our minds.” Pearltrees Puts Its Sharing Features into Hyperdrive Paris-based Pearltrees just launched a nice update to its online curation service that takes its sharing features to a new level. Indeed, the Pearltrees team has decided to call this feature “Hyper-Share” to emphasize that you can now effortlessly syndicate anything you save to your Pearltrees account to Twitter and Facebook as well. Here on this site, we’ve been using Pearltrees to curate some of the best tech stories of the day over the last few weeks. To do so, we’ve been using Pearltrees’ embed function. That feature, too, received some nice updates today. Embeds now allow Pearltrees users (and non-users!)
