A super nice member!
In my Social Studies classes students are required to present on current events. Zite uses their twitter feed to draw in stories and blogs from all over the net that they may be interested in. They can give a thumbs up or down to each story they read, making all future stories even more tailored to their interests. This has dramatically increased the variety of stories and sources used because students are moving beyond the mainstream media outlets.
Great for research projects. Students can add articles as they find them for later review and then they can add their own thoughts and ideas as they read them. Use in conjunction with Zite. Zite helps students find articles and resources and then allows them to clip directly to Evernote.
