Shareor - Another Social Bookmarking Site for Teachers

It seems like at least once a week there is a new social bookmarking site launched. This week's entry into that category is Shareor. Shareor is a free service that looks a heck of a lot like Pinterest. The basics of using the site will remind you a lot of the Pinterest interface. Shareor offers a little more than pinning by providing "workspaces" in which teachers can collaborate. Learn more about Shareor in the video below.


Applications for Education
Shareor has a nice infographic showing sixteen ways that teachers can use the service. That image is pasted below.

Learnist Now Allows You to Register With Email

Learnist, which I've described in the past as Pinterest for learning, announced today that you no longer have to use Facebook or Twitter to register and use their service. You can now register for and use Learnist with an email account. The service is still available only to people who request a beta invite, but it seems that beta invites come quickly.

Applications for Education
One of the obstacles to use of Learnist in schools was the requirement of logging-in using Facebook or Twitter account. The new option to register with an email address should make Learnist available to many more teachers and students. Learnist provides another professional learning community in which you collaborate on the collation of resources that are beneficial to you and your students.

Easier Pinning of Free Technology for Teachers

Many of you have asked for a Pinterest button on my posts and I've finally done it. Now at the bottom over every post, below the Link Within related posts you should see a "Pin it" button. Feel free to click it as often as you like.

EduClipper Is Now Open for Beta Users

Adam Bellow's new online bookmarking service EduClipper is now open to early beta users. If you signed up back in early June for a beta invite you should now be able to sign into EduClipper and start clipping (bookmarking) your favorite educational resources to your EduClipper boards. If you're not familiar with what EduClipper can do, it's kind of like Pinterest for educators only. Watch the video below for a demonstration.

If you want to start using EduClipper follow these directions from Adam's email: 


If you are already an eduTecher member, you're good to go! Simply use your existing account information to gain access to the site.  If you don't have an eduTecher account, now is the perfect time to get one - simply head over to eduClipper.net and register! Your eduClipper account will be good for eduTecher as well!

If you prefer, you can sign in with your existing Facebook or Twitter accounts.

You can install the ‘eduClip It’ button and add eduClipper QuickClip buttons (similar to the Facebook 'Like' or Google+ share buttons) to your website/blog by visiting bit.ly/eduButton 

We’re in “Alpha Mode” - a work in progress.  While you may encounter some bugs on the site, rest assured we are committed to making this site awesome for you and your students. 

Feel free to drop a line to support@eduClipper.net to report an issue.With tons of teacher and student tools and features in the works, we want to hear from you. We are building eduClipper for the education space and are always interested in requests for features and feedback to make it as good as possible.
