Transcript of Scoop.it How to for Elementary Campus PD

Challenge... It's an online curation. You can take images, links, and/or blogs that all relate to a topic or idea and "curate" them into a scoop.it.

It is just one of many ways to "curate." Other ways to curate or collect items to view are LiveBinders, Pinterest, and PaperLi, just to name a few.

Think of Scoop.it as a digital museum where you collect things that are of significance/meaning to you and you want to revisit and/or share with others. What is Scoop.it? 1. Go to www.Scoop.it.com
2. Click on button "sign up for free"
3. Sign in with your Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn account (I used my Twitter and when I curate. It Tweets my curations... so I can share with others!)
4. Set up for your daily scoops or magazine to gather or scoop things you are interested in... it will suggest people, communities or curations.
5. You can also search for a topic and follow based on a topic. How Do I Start Reasons to Scoop.it or Curate 1. It allows you to take things you see in Pinterest, Twitter and Blogs and put it with other like items... somewhat like a topical magazine or "mini-blog."
2. It puts your research out there for others to see, suggest and learn from making the journey that much more fun.
3. It is a great way to collect and control where students go to see websites so that they don't get sidetracked by other interests. "Today you are only on my Scoop.it about 'Grassland and Prairie Ecosystems' as you complete your 4 Square." Using a Scoop.it for PD and Classroom Purposes I started my first scoop.it by curating websites for an ecosystem project with my 3rd graders.

My next one was to start collecting the massive amounts of Tweeted links, blogs and ideas I was seeing on Twitter about #geniushour and wanted to keep because I was sure I couldn't remember all that I was seeing or be able to find it later.

Then it exploded. In 10 days I have started 5 curations including the one I am using as an example for today.

My next step is to see how I can facilitate students using it to curate ideas that they are passionate about... #passionbasedlearning through #geniushour. Step 1. Find a link, blog or online resource that would address one of our "Create a Product" apps on our list and suggest it to my Scoop.it.

Step 2. Select a topic you are passionate about learning more about or would like to collect more information on and begin a curation try collecting at least 2 items to post into your curation.

Step 3. Tweet your Scoop.it to Twitter and #hasleteled

Step 4. ReTweet all our fellow Haslet Tweeters when they post a Scoop.it on Twitter

Step 5. Pick one topic you could see using for a lesson to teach or facilitate learning with your kids in the classroom. Start curating for that.

Step 6. Plan a way to get your kids curating with Scoop.it. A Treasure Hunt to Keep Scoop.it Now...Search "Apps and Technology for Student Created Products Good Luck, Mateys! by Pirate extraordinaire,Kirsten Wilson
