Bubbl.us

Bubbl.us

Creating

Bubble.us is a concept map creator that can be used as a visual processing and thinking tool. Through the tool you can create maps for helping demonstrate information, understanding, or a process. Users than can also share their maps with others. This would be great in classrooms that required processing or step information. Students could create map to help them remember content or formulas for exams.

Easel.ly

Easel.ly

Creating

Creating and sharing infographics has never been easier to use and better yet fun. Infographics are a fun way to display statistics and have the ability to grab readers attention: in the bathroom stalls, in hallways, or in the classroom. Infographics using easel.ly could be incorporated into courses to make sharing information more catching and engaging.

Evernote

Evernote

Curate

Collaborate

Evernote provides users a workspace to take and keep notes organized. This web-based app has the ability to be accessed anywhere and can be shared through team hubs to help streamline and keep projects in sync. Searching capabilities make finding notes and specific content easy, you can even add audio and video clips. This would be a great space to start college student on the path for creating and keeping knowledge organized

Feedly

Feedly

Curate

Feedly gives users the ability to collect and follow sources from a variety of people as well as organizations. The interface is simple and easy to follow. Feedly also has an integration option that allows users to share and connect with other applications like Dropbox and OneNote.
I think that this could be an excellent resource for college students organize things like research journals, leaders in the field, and possible content to use in their classes.

Google Drive

Google Drive

With this Google App, users are able to store any type of file and can be accessed and shared with users all over the world, from any device. Through invitations for viewing and downloading, collaboration is possible within group projects and sharing of information.

Google Hangout

Google Hangout

Collaborate

Connecting

Communicate

Through Google Hangouts, users have the ability to keep in touch, message, video, and create conversations with another person or group. One of the greatest features of this app is that can be used any phone number in the world (free to hangout users). I see this being a great tool in online classrooms for colleges and universities. This tool would make interactions over online courses and projects possible. The opportunities for connections and collaborations are endless if users are able to work with users all over the world or right next door.

Hypothes.is

Hypothes.is

Collaborate

Connecting

Hypothes.is is a non-profit organization focused on creating conversations and sharing research. Users are able to hold discussions, organize and collaborate on research, and take notes within groups. This is a great site for collaboration to occur and holds the promise of open research and the sharing of knowledge to occur.

10

LinkedIn

LinkedIn

Connecting

Communicate

The Facebook of professionals! LinkedIn is a source for professionals to connect with others in their field as well as branch out to other avenues through connections they have made. Users can post their resume, vitae, and also search for careers through LinkedIn. This could act as a great resource for college students to stay connected with their peers after graduation, as well as, serve as a way to communicate with people through networking opportunities.

Listly

Listly

Curate

For the Love of lists!
This site helps curate lists on topics all across the board from best backpacks to studying habits and organizational habits. This site could be beneficial for college students looking for simple lists without having to go out of their way to do all the research, and may give them a launch point for further investigation. This site allows for a lot of creativity in how students may want to create their lists. It can be as simple as a To Do List or as magazine friendly as a Buzzfeed article. This could be a fun project to have college students collaborate and do research to produce their own lists to share with the class on a topic. They can also use the site to share their own lists on social media.

Pearltree

Curate

Communicate

Connecting

I feel like this site could be a great source to someone who is willing to put forth the effort to get started and establish their networks through this site. The user has the ability to create collections of materials like articles, websites, and videos that they can then tag as well as share. The user can then also create networks within areas of focus. The set up page was easy to use, however there is so much that you can do through the site, it might take someone a few tries to figure out how to maximize their use of the tools. College students may look to use this site as a way to connect with other students or share their areas of interest with others.

Pinterest

Pinterest

Curate

Pinterest is picture-based curation tool that can be used to find ideas and website on virtually any topic. Users create boards of their liking and based on search tags can find and "pin" website that they can use later. From weddings to chemistry lesson plans, Pinterest users can search, find, pin, and try everything they need.

Pocket

Pocket

Curate

personal favorite so far. One that I actually might personally use. I always tend to find articles while searching for other things and get off task by going to view them when I have other tasks to accomplish. I feel like Pocket would give me a place to store things I want to read without feeling like I need to read them immediately or not be able to find them again.

I think this site and app would be something college students could benefit from through curating articles to use/share through social media, or to help them stay on task while searching online. Its user friendly and can be synced with phone easily.

19

Popplet

Popplet

Creating

Popplet a fun and easy to use mind-mapping tool that is both web and app based to allow for working at home and school. Creating mind maps can help students process information and develop their own way for organizing their thoughts.

17

Powtoon

Powtoon

Creating

Create engaging animated videos to explain using Powtoon. These effective animated videos can help promote fun learning experiences and help with material retention and memory. Templates are easy to use and offer a variety in topic or content areas.

Presdo Match

Communicate

Connect

This site provides users the opportunity to connect through a conference app that is focused on networking. Using profiles and portfolio pages from LinkedIn, the app makes it easy to check out attendees credentials and help connect people at large events. There is even a search component that allows users to quickly find contacts and communicate with them through the app. Based on credentials of the users and previous networks, the app can then make recommendations for other participants to connect with. This would be a fun app to use within the college setting at a possible career fair or student orientation. In a large group of people at events like conventions it can be overwhelming to go out of your way to introduce yourself and make connections. An app like this could possibly help some people with that anxiety and help build networking connections.

Refworks

Curating

For college students reworks is a great tool for learning to be responsible students while searching, organizing, and citing literature. Newest version of Refworks is easy to use, can be linked to Word or google+ to allow for seamless exporting of citations. Students can use Refworks to collect research articles to then use later within papers and school work. This site is free to use through most institutions that have subscriptions.

ScoopIt

ScoopIt

Curating

Communicate

Scoop.It is an online web publishing site that allows users to follow current articles and topics being published in areas of interest. Scoop.it then filters these articles into top and trending for the user to "scoop" the article and publish it on their own social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Students and professionals who are interested in becoming more active on their social media sites might find this useful to eliminate time searching for relevant articles to publish on their feeds.

Smore

Smore

Creating

Collaborate

S'more is a fun way to create online flyers to share and connect with viewers outside of the traditions flyer boards. Users can create flyers from templates and share them through email or on social media. Then users can also track the view or attendees on the flyer tracker.
An even better feature for educators, there is an Educator Hive- a place to find flyers made and shared by other teachers in the field :)

Twitter

Twitter

Communicate

Connecting

Twitter has a unique way of connecting people through 280 characters. Through following organizations, professionals in the field, famous people, and friends, Twitter allows users to connect and keep up to date with our ever evolving world. Students now have the ability to view and share through creating their own tweet and retweeting interesting things they have found. Often times I find that I use twitter to get up-to-date information on my teams as well as events in my community.

Youtube

Youtube

Communicate

Creating

Collaborate

Youtube provides users with endless possibilities for learning and exploring new areas. For many college students, youtube is the reason we can tie a tie, do the laundry, jump start a car, and how to write a check. It also provides students the opportunity to become the creators and develop a way to share their own knowledge with the world. I have had students give ukulele lessons and share class projects through Youtube channels. This multi-dimension of sharing allows students to connect and be connected to the entire world.
