Using Curation in Education

Using Curation in Education | A Geography Scrapbook | Scoop.it

"Students of all ages must be trained to search, select, qualify (and therefore disqualify), then enrich with their own thought, and then use and share information."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 22, 2013 7:36 PM

This is a great article that demonstrates the value of curation in education (especially using the platform scoop.it).  Students today must sort through an array of online sources today.  As a professor/curator, I see part of my role being to present students with vetted, quality online information.  I demonstrate this in part ot provide materials for my students, but even more so to teach my students how to assess materials for themselves as they become the curators of information in their own right.    

Emiel Mulder's curator insight, January 24, 2013 3:40 AM

Leerlingen moet leren welke bronnen bruikbaar zijn en welke niet. Daar wordt echter maar weinig aandacht aan besteed... Hoe kan dit beter?

Kelsey Grill's curator insight, December 3, 2013 12:47 PM

This is really interesting. When I was learning about this I realized that Greece is pretty much screwed no matter what they do. However, if they leave it will hurt more countries than if they just stick to the euro.

Lauren Stahowiak's curator insight, February 27, 2:05 PM

Money controls everything. Because parliament has to make some budget cuts, money must be spent elsewhere. Because of this, Greece leaving the euro could lead to a downward spiral including a sovereign debt crisis, a recession and political backlash. Should Greece keep the euro?

Nathan Chasse's curator insight, March 17, 5:02 AM

This article explains eight possible outcomes of Greece leaving the Euro Zone. None of them favorable for Europe, except maybe the UK which could possibly borrow more cheaply. For the rest of Europe, the results are either increased burdens for the more economically strong EZ nations like Germany, or a domino effect which accelerates the decline of the struggling economies of countries like Italy and Spain.
