With the Internet being so HUGE these days educators have to become master curators of content. A Learnist Board is a really useful way to curate and keep a record of the information that you need. I love using Diigo, Pinterest and Scoopit for curation purposes, but Learnist has its own unique properties that sets it apart as a useful way of collecting the sites you want to keep.

    • What I like about a Learnist Board • A neatly set out dashboard showing all the sites created by a particular person. • Categorisation of the sites • One long column for easier viewing • One can set it out in steps numerically. This is quite important for some collections. • One can add a selection of different kinds of sites – videos etc,
