Because sharing is caring!

Kahoot is an online game and mobile app that you can use for defining terms, improving vocabulary and reviewing concepts learned in the different content/subject areas.  https://kahoot.com/ 

Cited is a mobile app that guides you in following different citation formats for various resources and sources of information. It is free in the iTunes App store.    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cited/id630292792  

Remember the bookmarking tools in the late 90s and early 2000? Really Simple Syndication (RSS),mailing lists and list sers? Well,  Scoopit is all that and more. It is a curation tool that you can manage per topic of interest. The free web app has a limit of articles and content for curation so if you are serious in sharing curated info and knowledge, consider getting the premium account. Scoopit is also a tool to brand and market your expertise or grow a professional learning network.  https://www.scoop.it/
