Superb article

Dico Krommenhoek's curator insight, August 26, 2013 9:44 AM

Thanks for sharing. Many of the ideas are directly applicable in a face to face classroom as well, aren't they?

Using Multiple Course Evaluations to Engage and Empower Your Students and Yourself

Using Multiple Course Evaluations to Engage and Empower Your Students and Yourself | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

Course evaluations are often viewed as a chore; one of those unpleasant obligations we do at the end of each course. In the Teaching Professor Blog post "End-of-Course Evaluations: Making Sense of Student Comments," Maryellen Weimer is bang-on in stating that the comments students dash off can be more confusing than clarifying.

Evaluations as formative evaluation will structure feedback and give your students a voice.  Sometimes you're able to make course corrections during the class. Other times, you revise materials for the next semester. 

Lynnette Van Dyke's curator insight, January 2, 2013 8:15 PM

I'dlove to know more about this course!

5 ways online education can keep its students honest | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

Cheating is pervasive in both face to face and online environments.  I think it's easier to recognize in an online environment where the voice of a student is established in discussion threads.  Ultimately, creating assignments that call for creative and critical thinking and a unique product are the best way to avoid the classic 'answers on the hand' scenarios.

"I tweeted yesterday an interesting news item in Erik Robelen’s blog in Education Week that a few states (Oklahoma, California, Massachusetts) are seriously looking into some sort of assessment of creative thinking as part of the whole 21st century skills/entrepreneurship movement. I think it is a great idea, with a lot of potential for leveraging change.

Now, of course, the naysayers are quick to say that you cannot measure creative thinking. This is silly: here is a rubric for doing so..."

Test and Assess – be a curator!

Test and Assess – be a curator! | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
A key component to this process, which is tied directly into active assessment strategies, is synthesizing or making sense of the information gathered. Sense making can be writing a blog post using the links (like this post) or summarizing the key points in a presentation. Gathering and collecting specific content points is the beginning, and creating the theme is where an individual demonstrates their analysis and evaluation of the content included in a post or presentation shared. Kanter wrote, “Content curation is not about collecting links or being an information pack rat, it is more about putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation.”

This article will help you understand how curating relates to both Bloom's taxonomy and the Engagement Pyramid proposed by Charlene Li and Jeremiah Owyang.


For those who must plan to standards, this article will give you great theoretical backing for teaching and using curation in your classroom. 


Bronwyn Desjardins's curator insight, December 27, 2012 5:19 PM

I agree. Education used to be about finding the information. With potential access to everything now, the focus should be on making sense of it and finding connections, drawing correlations and making conclusions - to become thinkers.

21st Century Curriculum and Assessment Framework

21st Century Curriculum and Assessment Framework | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

As society and technology change, so does literacy. Because technology has increased the intensity and complexity of literate environments, the twenty-first century demands that a literate person possess a wide range of abilities and competencies, many literacies. These literacies—from reading online newspapers to participating in virtual classrooms—are multiple, dynamic, and malleable
