No estado de Oklahoma existe um programa inovador chamado Escolas A + baseado noutro programa de grande sucesso que se iniciou na Carolina do Norte. Este programa, actualmente em vigor em mais de quarenta escolas de Oklahoma, apresenta a arte como meio para ensinar muitas das disciplinas que fazem parte do currÍculo. Os estudantes podem compor músicas rap para conseguirem compreender os temas mais destacados nas obras de literatura. Podem fazer colagens de diferentes tamanhos para conseguirem apreciar as aplicações práticas da matemática. As representações teatrais podem caracterizar momentos chave da história, ao passo que os movimentos de dança esclarecem determinados pontos fundamentais da ciência.

Excerpted from long but very interesting article by Master Curator Robin Good:
"Content curation will play a major role both in the way we teach and in the way we educate ourselves on any topic.
This article, builds up over my recent presentation on Content Curation for Education that I delivered at Emerge2012 virtual conference.
In that presentation I claimed that the adoption of "curation approaches" will directly affect the way competences are taught and the value that can be generated for "others" through a personal learning path.
In this article I outline ten key factors, already at work, which, among others, will very likely pave the way for a much greater and rapid adoption of curation practices in the educational / academic world.
These factors are:
1) An Overwhelming Abundance of Information Which Begs To Be Organized:
New digital literacy skills are of such great importance. They provide the mental tools for individuals to be able to evaluate, assess, filter and organize information in more effective ways than they have done until today.
2) A Growing Number of "Open" and Freely Accessible Teaching/Learning Content Hubs:
Learners will soon need some guidance in selecting the most appropriate course, instructor, approach and institution to achieve their goals most effectively.
3) From a Static, Unchanging World of Information To a Constantly Changing One:
a) Some of us dedicate their efforts to find, identify, monitor and update which are the most relevant "information sources", hubs or curators in every possible area of interest.
b) We equip our youth and ourselves with appropriate mental tools to be able to carry out such tasks.
4) Real-World Information Is Not Held Inside Silos Like Academic Institutions Pretend:
Curation fits in as a more appropriate approach to learning and to prepare for real-world work challenges, by allowing learners to construct meaning by having to research and to understand and to create new relationships between different information-elements.
5) Fast-Food Information Consumption In Rapid Decline - Curation Is the New Search:
Google has lost its "mojo". Search results have become increasingly unsatisfactory as they are often polluted by irrelevant, commercially-driven results or by large brands which Google likes to favor over small, independent and - hard to verify - information sources.
Researchers, educators and guides prefer to refer to trusted "curators" of specific information areas rather than to rely on Google-style secret and commercially-driven algorithms.
6) The Job Market is Rapidly Changing:
Outside of traditional "professionals" as doctors and engineers, companies recruiting new people are looking more for "skills and experience" than for degrees and certificates.
Today, the job marketplace requires people who can "think". People who can come up with creative solutions to unexpected problems...
Content curation offers a practical and immediately usable approach to help new learners train themselves in developing such very skills.
7) Alternative Certification Systems Are Emerging: Open Badges:
Here a few simple ideas.
Move from teaching and certifying to:
a) curating talent - breed new talent by providing motivated learners with the ideal conditions to study, research and develop new ideas.
b) curating educational resources for a specific area of interest / language / region / by creating and maintaining highly qualified "learning paths", and providing assistance, specialized training and resources, to those in specific need of it.
c) curating human guides, training future curators - by cultivating and supporting the development of skilled information-guides and coaches that possess the skills of a curator and those of a great story-teller.
8) Teachers and Professors Can Now Curate Their Own Textbooks:
Academic and independent teaching curators will design new textbook and teaching curriculums / learning paths. They will do so by selecting and pulling together the best and most relevant material in a variety of formats and configurations to satisfy the needs of many different "audiences".
These individuals will create also great collections of exercises, case studies, real-world examples, people's profiles and toolkits to further facilitate the exploration and learning of such topics.
9) Educational Marketplace Open to Thousands of Competitors:
There are now tens of learning marketplaces and platforms that allow anyone to offer and sell courses online. From WiziQ to Udemy the number of alternative services making it possible for anyone to deliver a "professional" course is rapidly increasing.
Today, anyone can become both a "resource", a supplier of content as well as a curator / editor / publisher of new curated content resources such as book collections, expert guides, curated and annotated lists of resources, examples, or templates galleries.
10) Growing Demand for Trusted Guidance Over Learning Content and Curricula:
Traditional academic institutions may indeed become trusted curators and guides to the greater universe of information out there, while specializing their efforts for a set of specific areas, needs and communities of interests.
With such abundance and variety (in quality) of educational materials, learners will soon express a growing demand for trusted guides to help them in selecting quality learning guides, sources, hubs and more than anything, curated learning paths and toolkits to explore and learn deeper about a specific topic.
This is where the opportunity for both sides lies."

Tradicionalmente, os educadores ajudam pais a ensinar jovens como se comportar adequadamente em relação aos outros. Agora, com a explosão da mídia social, os educadores podem fazer parte de uma conversa mais ampla com os jovens sobre a cidadania digital e o comportamento on-line. Falaremos mais sobre o que significa cidadania digital na seção 4. Como educadores, vocês podem instruí-los a usar a Internet de forma segura, ética e responsável.
Exploring the Potential of Mobile Technologies to Support Teachers and Improve Practice
This paper reviews and compares the most relevant ongoing initiatives on the use of mobile phones to support teachers and improve teaching practices in Latin America. Three major projects were identified that aim to provide in-class support for teachers via mobile phones. The paper analyses these projects in depth to determine key factors for success, sustainability and growth. An additional eighteen initiatives were found that used different mobile technologies, were short-term or small in scale, or focused on learning outside the formal school system. The paper describes each of these projects in brief and compares their most salient features.
