One of my assignments this week is to create a e-magazine with Scoop.IT! This social media application allows you to “scoop” interesting information all over the Web and add it to your e-magazine. Mine is called The Critical Reader. It’s geared toward first year college students. I can only post 10 items a day; so on Day 1, I only have a few.
What’s nice about the app is that it searches content for you. Simply provide key words and then cull through the list they propose. Make sure you preview all the content before adding it to your e-magazine!
Scoop.IT has been around for a while. I’ve used it in the past to share resources for a nonprofit. I also follow several of my colleagues Scoop.IT accounts on e-learning, virtual worlds, etc. This is a great way to learn about a content area, too. Check out mine on critical reading:
