There were various things which attracted me to
Scoop.it. The current buzz around ‘cu-ration’ being one;
my desire to find new and attractive ways to share
professional learning resources was another, and the
ongoing commitment to providing students with access
to quality resources, a third. Mill Park Secondary
College libraries have had Delicious accounts for years
– we have used them effectively to provide access to
curriculum resources on the web by tagging and
bundling into logical groups, but we were disappointed
in some of the changes that occurred when it was sold
last year. As teacher-librarians we are always on the
lookout for ways to improve our pathfinders – in
Scoop.it we have (almost) found the perfect solution.
Scoop.it is a well-designed and easy to use Web 2.0
tool for content cu-ration. If you have a few specific
interest areas for which you wish to find and share
resources, Scoop.it will enable you to do so quickly,
easily and give you an attractive and dynamic product.
As a means of creating library pathfinders it would be
perfect if not for its limit of topic numbers.
