Today I introduced Scoop.it to Ms. Lester’s Advanced Grammar and Composition students who are working on senior research projects. Several of our students were immediately smitten with the ease of use and the appealing visual layout; some students will also use the commenting tool for keeping their own notes on the sources they’ll be adding. Other students are already making plans to connect their social networking accounts, like Facebook and Twitter, to their Scoop.it dashboards; others are interested in cross-posting sources to their blogs on WordPress and Tumblr. I’m excited to see how our seniors utilize Scoop.it in the upcoming months and how they use it to work within the ecology of learners in our building as well as a global community.
