I’ve been using Scoop.it now for several months, and it is already hard to imagine getting by without it. It serves me in several ways:
- It acts as a webclipper for particular articles, videos, blogs, etc., that I find helpful. I have used other social bookmarks (delicious, mainly), but this is better: more intuitive, looks better, behaves better (for me).
- Is a pretty good RSS filter tool, so I can keep abreast of what’s fresh across news feeds, blogs, twitter posts, etc. that I can set up.
- It helps me synthesize information from many disparate sources to see patterns I would not have seen before.
- It has helped me make professional connections across disciplines and geography.
- It’s kinda fun, and helps me build my own professional credentials.
With that I invite you to check out my Scoop.it page: Training, Learning and Instructional Design. And further invite you to try it out yourself. You might have some fun and learn some something new.
