"If you are planning to incorporate iPad in your classroom teaching then you definitely need to work on some preliminary stuff before anything else. These are basically formalities and conventions students need to abide by when using iPad in class. Making students explicitly aware of their responsibilities behind using iPad in class will certainly help you tap into the full educational potential of this versatile gadget. I have gone through my archive and picked out these handy visuals for you to use with your students."

Gebruik je iPads in jouw klas? Dan zijn deze posters wellicht handig om te gebruiken. Je moet ze natuurlijk wel eerst even vertalen in het Nederlands.

A Framework for Using Content Curation in a Learning Organization

A Framework for Using Content Curation in a Learning Organization | 21st century learning and education | Scoop.it

 

4 Ways to use Curation in Learning

I’m getting very excited about the possibilities of using more digital curation in learning.  The trouble with curation is that I’m seeing it everywhere. As such I wanted to come up with a short framework that I could use to talk about how I see curation in learning being used, both at the organisation level and for individuals.  So, go easy on me; here’s what I’m proposing…

 

We can think of digital curation as being useful to us in four broad roles that I’m calling Inspiration, Aggregation, Integration and Application. Inspiration is how I term curation that is done by other people on your behalf, outside of a formal learning environment.  Aggregation is the same thing, but done within a formal learning context.  Integration is a more personal curation process; how individuals blend new learning experiences with existing thoughts.  And finally Application is how individuals apply new insights in the real world; how we individually manage knowledge on a day-to-day basis.  I capture this flow in a simple matrix that demonstrates how the four types of curation can flow into each other in a continuous learning cycle:
