Thing 6 – Curation Tools

22 Feb

This has been an informative section.  I liked exploring Learnist more than Mentormob.  For me, the Learnist layout allowed for quicker exploring.  Scoop.It! led to the School Librarians Teacher Librarains link which in turn led to Inklewriter.  I’m very intrigued by this program and plan to see if my sixth grade teachers are interested in using this with their students. I wish there were more examples of how the program could be used with math & science.

Given all the information available on-line the curative tools would save time, sort of.  I find that one interesting site leads to another interesting site and before I know it hours have passed!

I’d like to mention another web-based bookmarking site and that is http://portaportal.com/.  It’s free, requires a sign-in, can be organized, and you can add quick links. I started using it years ago; at that time it seemed better setup than delicious.
