30 Days of webools #24: Create a MentorMob playlist

What is MentorMob?

It’s that word ‘curating’ that is popping up again! I found MentorMob, a curating tool,  by chance when surfing the Net and I really like this free tool. This is a great tool which allows one to put together articles, videos and blogs related to a subject of interest in a play list. The end produce has a gorgeous look in my opinion



Examples of MentorMobs

To show you what I mean
1) Take a look at this one on Blended Learning by Anna Conway  http://bit.ly/NNlNDs
It is a mix of items – videos and articles.

Classroom uses

           

         *It is great to use for a flipped
classroom instruction post
.

         *Students can collect articles for the
same project in a team and then present to the

          class with a verbal explanation

         *It could allow absent students
to catch up with work.

         *Provides further resources on a topic.

         *For language learning one could include reading, writing, listening and speaking resources.

         *You can use a playlist for assessment as well, as there is something
called a ‘Popquizz

           that can be added where one can assess if students understood the
material.

         *Professional development resources –
this is a great way to create teacher training

 material instead of the bulky paper booklets/handouts.
