Good Idea
Wed Jul 10, 2013 14:09

I didn't use ScoopIt for our Social Bookmarking assignment but I do like this idea you have about collecting websites using ScoopIt (or some other social bookmarking tool) for students to use as a classroom resource. We did two big research projects this past year, one on pirates and one on lighthouses. For both of the projects I had just copy and pasted URL's onto a word document and then uploaded that to my website. Students clicked on the links they needed to do their research and the websites were previewed by me so I knew they were safe (you run into some interesting web content when researching pirates so with fourth graders you have to be careful). However, I like this idea of using Social Bookmarking to do the same sort of thing. The idea didn't hit me until I read your post, so thanks for that!

        Paige, When I introduce a book in my class or a new theme unit, I often have students to a webquest to search for information. It's sort of like research through an internet scavenger hunt. I create... more

          Robyn, I understand now what you're talking about. I just hadn't heard those terms before. I think any of the social bookmarking sites would be good for either of those tasks. I've seen teachers... more

            Paige, you brought up an idea I've been contemplating since I started looking at scoop it. I think it would be a great tool for students to compile research together. This way they wold be able to... more

      You can't reorganize pins.
