I first wrote about the web curation site Scoop.it three months ago here. Since then I have been using the site to add to my growing collection of Comics and cartoons, which has been viewed over a thousand times! Thank you so much to everyone who has visited it, and also a big thanks to all my followers.
I have reproduced the Pixton comics below from my previous post about Scoop.it. It is now part of a series of comics on this theme.
Fun Scoop.its to Follow
I have also been busy following quite a few Scoop.its on a variety of topics, which include technology, images and presentations, amongst others. I follow these sites for my CPD. I like the fact that each site contains a lot of useful links all in one place. This is both convenient and time-saving. I intend to show these sites to teachers as an example of the type of themes that can be curated. In fact, the world is your oyster! You can curate anything that interests you. I get daily notifications of any updates on the sites I follow. This is very handy!
Scoop.it sites I follow include the following:
Inspiration for tired EFL Teachers
Tools for Learners
Digital presentations in English
Larry Ferlazzo has an excellent and informative list of Best Posts & Articles about Curation.
If you haven't already investigated starting up your very own site, then I hope this post will inspire you to do so!
If you already have your Scoop.it site, I would love to hear how you exploit your curation site(s) for your Continuous Professional Development, or your classes.
