Blogging as a Content Curation Hub

Blogging as a Content Curation Hub | A Lifetime of Learning | Scoop.it

I want to take a look at curation through the lens of blogging. How can educators and students use their blogs to become their own information curators and content curators for others in their learning community.


Via Gust MEES, Guillaume Decugis
Sue Gould's insight:

The face of educational instruction is changing once again.  The relaxed manner in which these notes are representing important content is fabulous.  A cirle is almost complete - as a child this sort of doodling in class was stopped and a punishable offense!  Yet so many tutors, educators, and trainers are idealists and visualise while learning and observing the world around them.  It is great to see that this representation of learning is on a comeback of acceptance.

Sometimes it is not about what we know - and more about what we dont know. And it is alright to say it out loud "I dont know!" Because unless we actually admit that we dont know, the door will never open in our minds to learn. We need to remind ourselves that we will never be ahead of the game in terms of technology.
