Thing 6: Curation Tools

19 Mar

Revisited Diigo and set up new groups.  While exploring some of the links and connections, found some great ideas for the teachers here!  Showed Gobstopper to and English teacher working in the library today and we also looked at some other sites where his students might be able to place all their research  on a project (like Evernote and Zotero). Mentormob looks interesting, but some of the projects posted just seem to be one website after another, with outdated and/or broken links i nbetween.  Like Learnist better and found some examples to show teachers doing similar units right now.

Thing 8: Collaborating, Connecting, Sharing

18 Mar

Whew!  Have been exploring many of the Thing 8 resources and found some to be of immediate value! For personal use, opened a Dropbox account and scanned all or our tax information and then shared it with our tax preparer! Love the ease of it and downloaded it to my iphone as well.

Went to diigo and started to explore the groups and add to my library.  Also, found a couple of new RSS feeds to add to my Favorites and Feeds.

Took the photos I had loaded onto my Photstream on Flickr and made a Cooliris 3D Wall.
