Mentor Mob

Mentor Mob is a web curation site which allows teachers to group content into a meanginful lesson (think webquest) called a playlist.  For more information about the basics, check out my previous post or watch the video below.  Recently Mentor Mob rolled out a new feature that is pretty cool which allows for commenting by the viewer of the playlist.  This is a great way for students to ask questions about the information or add their thoughts to the conversation.  Teachers can use this feature to leave comments for their students or answer questions that have been left by viewers.  If you are looking for other ways to curate the web you can check out Pinterest, Side Vibe or Bag The Web which all do a nice job of putting content into a manageable package for sharing with your students.
