Exploring Scoop.It and Other Possibilities

I'm spending a lot of time this summer looking at tools I've known about but haven't quite explored, those that I haven't used in a while, and also some brand new tools.  I'm trying to decide which tools to use as I begin the school year  - tools to help find information and organize it, tools to help create and share, and tools to help collaborate and connect.  You couldn't, and shouldn't, use every possible tool, although I believe it's important to at least find out what's available.  And, sometimes, you might decide something you thought would be great just isn't suited for your particular needs.  Even if everyone else loves it, if it isn't helping you, then put it aside.

So here is what I'm looking at today -  Choose a topic to "curate."  Resources come to you.  Add them to your page, or not.  And you can also collect your own resources that you want to include on your page.  Share with others in a variety of ways.  See what others are curating as well. For now, I'm just exploring.  My page on creativity is still a work-in-progress. Click on the image to see the full page -
