This is a great place to go to if you are looking for examples on how scoop.it can be used. It literally has 83 pages of links that range from Web 2.0 tools to articles on why you should integrate technology into your classroom. This is such a great site and I really can't wait to dive in even farther and see all the different articles it includes!
Although this link is not an example of how to use scoop.it in the educational context, it is an excellent site that is related to educational technology such as apps, 2.0 tools, and current articles in the field of education. Definitely worth taking a look at!

As our state (Maryland) has accepted the Common Core Standards, I have also included those that scoop.it qualifies under for Grade 3. W7: conduct short research projects that build knowledge about a topic. By using scoop.it to gather links for a research project, students are completing this standard.
