Tools For Curating the Web: Blendspace




Formerly Edcanvas, Blendspace is a teaching tool that allows teachers and students to create lessons made of digital resources. Basically, users have the power to curate resources from across the web, through the cloud, and specifically through such resources as Dropbox, Google Drive, Gooru, Educreations, and more. The lessons can then be shared in several ways. Teachers can create classes in which students can share their lessons as well.
