Being a learner, you need to realize that you can’t know everything, and when you have an opportunity to try something new, take it. I’ve heard of Scoop.It before, but I have never used it.
Since this connected is all about 10 mins a day, I followed the instructions and signed myself up for Scoop.it
When you first sign up, you need to pick some keywords you would like to search. I picked Education, Leadership, Learning, and Strength Based, and the above results came back. Since I was interested in the article on being a more effective learner, I clicked on that and liked the article.
I shared the article to my twitter feed, referencing where I found it and sharing it for others to learn from too.
In just 10 minutes, I was able to try a new platform, find an article that I wanted to share, and I shared my learning with my Twitter network, and through blogging. Now I need to continue my learning by going back to Scoop It, seeing if it something that works for me and then either using it, or using other things that I find useful.
Have you ever used Scoop it? How does it work for your curation?
