What to do with all the AWESOME resources you discover on Twitter? @weaver5th and @kkmathias have the answer, “Pin It, Scoop It, Tweet It.”
"Pin It, Scoop It, Tweet It" became the theme of the day at our Techie Tuesday on curating a topic with Pinterest and Scoop.IT. Both Pinterest and Scoop.It are electronic ways to organize and manage web resources.
Pinterest is a visual way to creatively organize the web, collaborate, and share resources. This virtual pin board is intuitive to use and manage. The Pin It button slides on to the bookmarks bar of the browser, making it simple to Pin ideas as you find them.
Scoop. It works similarly. Find a great blog post or article, just click Scoop.It on the toolbar and the article is scooped onto your topic page. The page has its own URL making it easy to Tweet or share the link.
By mid morning, we had a room full of pinning, scooping, tweeting teachers, and by afternoon a cacthy little jingle was created. (check out the YouTube Video of the Pin It , Scoop It, Tweet It song).
So what are you waiting for? Pin It, Scoop.It, Tweet It!
