Greetings, The ELI is researching a future issue of this 7 Things publication; this issue will be on content curation services, such as Pinterest, eduClipper, learnist, RebelMouse, etc. We are looking for examples of the use of these kinds of tools directly in teaching and learning. We will be able to mention 2-3 of them in the publication. Is anyone at your institution using these kinds of tools in the curriculum? If so, please let me know! I will summarize back to the list the examples we receive. Many thanks in advance!

Hi Malcolm, I currently work with faculty in relation to helping them develop personal learning networks, and one curation tool we use is Scoop.it! I think it would be useful in a college curriculum as well. We find it very useful because there are resource collection, and sharing opportunities embedded within it. Some of these include: *Add web sites of interest to your Scoop.it page as you surf the web - include your own annotations regarding the sites *Search for and follow other Scoop.it users, and re-scoop the wealth of resources derived from them *Share your collections with those who follow you. There is also an option for followers to make suggestions related to additional related resources that reflect your interests *Scoop.it also searches for resource sites that reflect your stated interests *Scoop.it delivers a daily e-mail synopsis of resource postings related to those you are following. Scoop.it provides an appealing visual format for your resource collections. It offers a way to quickly build a rich and dynamic resource site based on your topics of interest. http://www.scoop.it Cheers, Shirley Lesch Professor/ID The Innovation Teaching Learning and Engagement Hub, George Brown College Toronto, Ontario
