Getting the Scoop on AAC
A- A+

ScoopItWhen I first heard about curation being the next big thing on the internet, I had a hard time seeing how I would have time to get involved. Less than a year later, I can’t conceive of being on the internet without my curation tools. Every day, something comes up that I want to store on a curation site. And it’s almost every day that I send someone to those places for a specific tool, video, article, etc.

In addition to Pinterest, which we blogged about earlier, we are frequent users of Scoop.It and LiveBinders. Each one has its unique properties and so, they are each useful for different things.

Scoop.It is a pictorial magazine where you can collect and share websites related to topics of interest. Unlike Pinterest, with Scoop.It, you can add things that do not have a sizable image. Anyone can view Scoop.Its, but if you register for a free account you can create your own collection, and, most importantly, follow others. Once you follow a certain topic, you can provide suggestions to the curators for things they may want to add. For a quick video on what Scoop.It has to offer, click here.

In this post, we’ve listed a number of Scoop.It collections on AAC-related topics. The ones marked with asterisks are those that we curate.
