23 Mobile Things Spotlight – Thing 7 Content Saving and Sharing

icon_23_100px1The CMLE office will be shining a spotlight on some of the 23 Mobile Thing posts that deserve to be noticed. This week’s focus is on Content Saving and Sharing, Thing 7 in the program.

The first spotlight is on the “Husker Tech” blog written by Debbie, a K-12 Media Specialist at the Holdingford Public Schools. In her post about content saving and sharing, she looked at the Pinterest, EduClipper, and Blendspace apps. She commented that EduClipper is “…created with teachers and students in mind… [and] works much the same way as Pinterest as far as creating boards and clipping things to add to your board.” She liked the fact that it was educational items and thought “teachers and/or students can easily create digital collection of resources around a particular unit of study.”

In Andrea’s “Assorted Librarian” blog, she used Pinterest “to find ideas for my branch’s summer reading program–and hit the jackpot.” Andrea is a public librarian working in rural Minnesota and wrote Pinterest would be a great resource for ideas for virtual displays, book lists, local history, or other special interests.
