Jennifer Ryan's curator insight, November 10, 2013 5:04 PM

This is right up my alley. Looking forward to reading about trends and impacts.

Erica Bilder's curator insight, November 15, 2013 7:11 AM

I have nothing to add to Robin Good's terrific insights:

 Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Picture these scenarios:
 

The Victoria & Albert Museum, its collections depleted by massive repatriation, becomes a travel & tourism guide and international affairs ambassador in an increasingly globalized community
 The Freud Museum, in the spirit of its namesake, becomes a provider of mental retreat and therapy (I wonder if the docents will be licensed psychoanalysis?)

These, according to the 40-page report “Museums in a Digital Age” from Arups, may actually be some of the likely new profiles of prestigious museums 25 years from now.  

 

The report projects that:

 

"...future museums will see personalised content, new levels of sustainability and a visitor experience extended beyond present expectations of time and space."

 

A rising desire among audiences to shape their own cultural experiences (“Collaborative Curation”)
 The opportunity for museum to become “curators of experiences” that extend beyond the boundaries of traditional exhibits or programs, or beyond the walls of the museum itself.

 

Source: http://futureofmuseums.blogspot.it/2013/11/museums-in-future-view-from-across-pond.html ;

 The idea of "collaborative curation" of museum collections by the actual users-visitors, is particularly fascinating.  "Just as current consumer trends shift towards collaborative consumption, in the future, museums may employ new patterns of collaborative curation,allowing for individually curated experiences and giving the public greater control over both content and experience.
Increased visitor participation will allow people themselves to reinvent the museum experience, enabling content that can adapt to the preferences of users in real-time." 

 

My comment: If you are a curator and are interested in exploring and understanding what the future of large collections and museums may look like and which forces are going to be driving such changes, this is a good report to read.

 

Insightful. Inspiring 8/10

Social Media Classroom

Social Media Classroom | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Welcome to the Social Media Classroom and Collaboratory. It’s all free, as in both “freedom of speech” and “almost totally free beer.” We invite you to build on what we’ve started to create more free value. The Social Media Classroom (we’ll call it SMC) includes a free and open-source (Drupal-based) web service that provides teachers and learners with an integrated set of social media that each course can use for its own purposes—integrated forum, blog, comment, wiki, chat, social bookmarking, RSS, microblogging, widgets , and video commenting are the first set of tools. The Classroom also includes curricular material: syllabi, lesson plans, resource repositories, screencasts and videos. The Collaboratory (or Colab), is what we call just the web service part of it. Educators are encouraged to use the Colab and SMB materials freely, and we host your Colab communities if you don’t want to install your own. (See this for an explanation of who “we” are).

Collaboration has been and is a difficult issue to tackle between teachers and librarians. Here is one study that is trying to solve the puzzle... Not a new study but just as valid.

Don’t Shush Me! In Some Libraries, It’s OK to be Loud | MindShift

Don’t Shush Me! In Some Libraries, It’s OK to be Loud | MindShift | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

The shift to a noisier and more interactive library model is relatively new in U.S. public school systems.

 

Buffy Hamilton seems to be redefining what it means to be a librarian. She’s active on Twitter, maintains a blog about being a “modern school librarian” and frequently travels around the country and world to speak about her model. Creekview’s was the only school-based library that won a 2011 American Library Association award for having a cutting-edge technology service, Media 21, that could be replicated by other school libraries around the country.

Using Google+ Ripples to Connect with Influencers

Using Google+ Ripples to Connect with Influencers | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

This is massivley COOL and TY again to Shirley Williams!!

 

Two weeks ago today, Google released “Ripples” for Google+ and most of the world went on with their daily activities. Personally I thought it was just another one of those features that was interesting but nothing I could really use. That was until this Whiteboard+ video which I filmed with Rand. Both Rand and I were blown away at the amount of data a Ripple gives you and what you can do with it.

 

What is a Ripple

 

The definition of a “ripple effect” is: a spreading effect or series of consequences caused by a single action or event. When it comes to Google+ a Ripple is an interactive diagram that shows how a Google+ post spreads as it’s shared by users. You can find the Ripple of any public post using the dropdown to the right of the post...

Using The Power Of The Pair To Enhance Active Learning - Edudemic

Using The Power Of The Pair To Enhance Active Learning - Edudemic | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Colleen Lee: 


I remember when I first figured out the “power of the pair”. I had walked onto our school library and the noise was way above what I would expect. I asked our librarian how it could be like that and she told me it wasn’t ‘noise’ – that if I listened closely it was ‘learning’. As I looked around the room it was evident. Students were working together to help each other in learn. For me the ‘pair’ is now one of my most powerful tools. I use it in all my foreign language classes and see it increasingly used in other disciplines. Here’s a few reasons why:

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The sweet noise of learning in the library should be music to any teacher or librarian's ears.

7 Must-Read Books on the Future of Information, The Web & its Impact on Our Lives

7 Must-Read Books on the Future of Information, The Web & its Impact on Our Lives | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

I selected this post from Maria Popova, who never fails to produce the best content and information on her blog brainpickings It's always thought provoking and challenging and today is no exception.

 

My commentary:

 

**The future is upon us and excelerating at a rapid pace, knowledge is power......

 

**These books suggested are timely and relevant and can be helpful to all of us who curate, create, consume and share content and information on the web.

 

**These books examine the networked society, the sharing of information and interpretation and its impact on our thinking, our minds and our future.

 

**How will the sharing economy impact collaboration and innovation

 

**How will you participate in all of this?

 

"From retrofuturist media prophecies to the cognitive consequences of mobile-everything".

 

Here's an intro which will tell you what you can expect from this article.

 

We’re deeply fascinated by the evolution of media and the sociocognitive adaptations that go along with it,

 

**but perhaps even more so by the intellectual debates surrounding this ever-swelling topic of increasing urgency and controversy.

 

The past year has been particularly prolific in varied takes on our shared digital future, contextualizing

 

**our current concerns in fascinating media history and exploring the potential consequences of our modern media diets.

 

Collected here are 7 of our favorite books investigating the subject from dramatically different yet equally important angles.

Forecast 2020: Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence

Forecast 2020: Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

"Let’s focus on the resulting element — the “collective intelligence”. Think about it as billions of human brains working using future super computers as a platform. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Srini Devadas described “collective intelligence” as consisting of two pillars: cloud computing and crowd computing. Cloud computing is using the Internet as a platform and making access to information available to everyone. Crowd computing, according to him, involves the analysis of information into “collective intelligence” far beyond what we have today."

Netsmart:How to Thrive Online: Howard Rheingold, Anthony Weeks: Books

"Like it or not, knowing how to make use of online tools without being overloaded with too much information is an essential ingredient to personal success in the twenty-first century. But how can we use digital media so that they make us empowered participants rather than passive receivers, grounded, well-rounded people rather than multitasking basket cases? In Net Smart, cyberculture expert Howard Rheingold shows us how to use social media intelligently, humanely, and, above all, mindfully.

Mindful use of digital media means thinking about what we are doing, cultivating an ongoing inner inquiry into how we want to spend our time. Rheingold outlines five fundamental digital literacies, online skills that will help us do this: attention, participation, collaboration, critical consumption of information (or "crap detection"), and network smarts. He explains how attention works, and how we can use our attention to focus on the tiny relevant portion of the incoming tsunami of information. He describes the quality of participation that empowers the best of the bloggers, netizens, tweeters, and other online community participants; he examines how successful online collaborative enterprises contribute new knowledge to the world in new ways; and he teaches us a lesson on networks and network building."
