With the Internet being so HUGE educators have to become master curators of content. I like this definition from Robin Good (http://goo.gl/j3yVL)
A Learnist Board is a really useful way to curate the information that you need. I love using Pinterest and I love using Scoopit, but what I like about Learnist is that it is only one column and you can set it out in steps of your own choosing.

How to create a Learnist Board

Embed your Learnist board in your blog
One of the newer improvements in Learnist boards is that you can embed them in your blog. So, to date I have created two Learnist boards and I am going to try embedding them in this post.
