Now that I’m getting to grips with the basics of WordPress, I want to try out some Web 2.0 tools. Recently, I’ve come across Scoop-it!, a social media site for collecting media around particular topics. This video explains all..
This is one I’ve created for Gilly Salmon’s 5 stage model for e-learning. Click on the image on the left and it will shoot you off to the Scoopit page.
Scoop it! is a social sharing site so you can use it to suggest topics to the orginal curator. Feel free to suggest topics to this one!
I also like the idea of using it to create bios like the one the Scoop-it! team have created here.
In the process of curating the Gilly Salmon page I used Google Docs which has been on my back-burner for a while. So, two birds down there – result!
Have you had any experiences you can share about using these or any other Web 2.0 tools for collating resources or creating mindmaps?
