  • 1. Crissy J. Turner September 26, 2013 FRIT 7235 Curated Content Resource File 1. a. The two curation tool websites I used were: http://blnds.co/15uHvEy and http://list.ly/l/83Q b. My reflection: The theme I chose to use was Paul Revere. The content area for this assignment is social studies for 3rd grade students in the state of Georgia. Georgia Performance Standards that this covers is SS3H2 (a-b) and SS3G2 (a-e). For me, the content curation tool, Blendspace, was much easier to use. It was easy to download, add comments to, and maneuver around how I wanted them to be listed. I did find that Listly was easy to curate the spots in the order I wanted, but I felt Blendspace was just as easy to maneuver. Blendspacehad different themes and templates to choose from adding choice and individuality for the user whereas Listly did not. Another benefit from Blendspace is that you can play it like a slideshow or print it with the notes you have added. This makes it easy when using a Promethean Board. I liked the list view that Listly gave, but overall, Blendspacewas my favorite when it came to viewing. Because there is so much information out there, teachers can sometimes feel bombarded, overwhelmed, and/or even anxious when surfing the web. Using Blendspace can cut down on what is out there, and the curator can filter through unwanted material and organize what he/she feels is more important in terms of teaching. Teachers can use this tool when planning for any unit for any subject. This Web 2.0 tool makes lesson plans better organized and developed while adding a bit of creativity to it. Blendspace could also be used to differentiate with students. A teacher could list different sources, and students could choose which one appealed to them. All-in-all, they both have positives for them, but I found that I connected more to Blendspace more than Listly.
