Inquiry Learning Vs. Standardized Content: Can They Coexist?

Inquiry Learning Vs. Standardized Content: Can They Coexist? | Agile Learning | Scoop.it


"Increasingly, any standards-based curriculum is at odds with the outside world.  Is sticking to content standards still appropriate?"


Beyond the core literacies of reading, writing, computation, and research, the world-wide culture of innovation, discovery, multi-polarity, interdisciplinary thinking, and rapid change depends on the explosive potential of the human mind, not entombed truths from the past.


....how can you, as a teacher, help move the dialogue forward? First, you can focus on becoming a highly-effective project based learning (PBL) teacher.


But PBL is the near-term solution. The ultimate destination is to align education with the requirements of a process-based world.

Curation & Blogging, Business Lessons Learned & Curator Prescience, 2012

A choice in social media for business today is blogging or curation, or some of both, or developing a hybrid. How do you make smart choices among traditional and the newest social media tools?


Curation to deal with Social Media Overload:  It's a theme in my new, tailored video presented this month to the local Lunch Ann Arbor Marketing, @LA2M group, focusing on the differences between blogging and curation.


Curation is not filtering, it's not aggregating, it's functioning as a librarian of current and classic content, which allows others into the curation process curate with you, to help avoid "filter bubble" syndrome (I've blogged & have a Move.on video on the subject.)  ScoopIt enables the co-creation curation function as one of the newer curation platforms out there.


I also mention in my video, both Beth Kanter, a respected blogger in non-profit circles, and Robin Good, who was just interviewed by Beth.  This seems to be a prescient convergence to me.


LA2M also archives most of their presentation, so my presentation partner, JT, has his slides and our UStream video archived here, so you can access our combined, recent curationg presentation.


What do you think about curation?  What are your questions?
