Edcanvas for Curating

I attended EdCampMadison today and learned about this great curation tool:  Edcanvas.  It lets you create a tiled collection of images, video, documents, and presentations in one place.  You can play them in order as a slideshow, or click on the links from the main page.  The sidebar with embedded tools for searching YouTube, Google, and Picassa make loading content a breeze.  It also includes quick buttons for accessing your files on your computer, Dropbox, GoogleDrive, and even your bookmarks.  What a great tool for teachers to use for lesson planning and delivery.  It's also a fantastic tool for students to use for research projects, class presentations, and curating their own work.  

Here's a sample Edcanvas that's a lot of fun (not created by  me).
