Using Content Curation Tools to Engage Students

When I was in college (for 12 years I might add) there were really only three sources of information available to students: 1) Instructor 2) Textbook 3) Library. This was not such a distant past. A mere two decades ago I finished my undergrad, and I graduated with my PhD in 2001. I don’t think learning, or even how we learn, has changed all that much since then. But what has changed is access to information and how that access might actually distract from learning.

Educators as Curators: 8 Steps to Bringing Your Students the Best of the Web

Educators as Curators: 8 Steps to Bringing Your Students the Best of the Web | Curation as a tool for teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Last spring, Dr. Corinne Weisgerber turned her undergrads into Guggenheim-like curators. After building personal learning networks that delivered subject-specific tweets and blog posts, her students chose the most salient content and arranged it online the way a museum curator might an art exhibit. Their goal was to design a learning experience that cut through the noise to bring the Internet’s best content to others.

Curation – Social Bookmarking with Students | Celia's reflections | Curation as a tool for teaching and learning | Scoop.it

It was serendipitous:

I had just written my last post on the value of using tags and cataloguing our resourcesI attended TeachMeet Melbourne where John Pearce spoke about“Curation It’s Not Just Adults Only” See his presentation here I was working with colleagues, planning an upcoming Inquiry Unit with a History focus for Year 5/6.

The planets were aligning.  I must take the opportunity to introduce these students to the value of curating – using Social Bookmarking tools to store, share and evaluate on-line resources.

Content Curation Tools: 21 Criteria To Select And Evaluate Your Ideal One

Content Curation Tools: 21 Criteria To Select And Evaluate Your Ideal One | Curation as a tool for teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Nonetheless we are just at the beginning of a new era, in which content curation will be as important as search, there is already an apparent abundance of content curation tools of all kinds. To the superficial eye, many such 

curation tools also appear to be very similar to one another, especially if evaluated exclusively from the type of news streams or visual collections that can be produced with them.

On the other hand it is not realistic for someone to go out and test each and every one of the available solutions.

Digigogy: Collection or Curation?

Digigogy: Collection or Curation? | Curation as a tool for teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Collecting is what kids do when asked to find resources for a particular topic. Usually, it represents the first 3 or 4 hits on a Google search, without meaning, discernment, or connections.

Curating is different. It’s the Critical Thinker’s collection, and involves several nuances (see Figure 1) that separate it as an independent and classroom-worthy task.

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Curation as a tool for teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Curation is a valuable skill for today’s learner. In a culture of content overload, members that provide great content to their audience will be recognized leaders in network communities. Optimally, we equip students to differentiate good content from bad in preparation for their further education and careers. Curating an online topic (and allowing comments) also increases self-awareness and provides additional insight from others. The nuances of sharing content and writing to an audience become much better understood through interactivity between the curator and participating audience.

Diary Note: One week into Social bookmarking with students | Celia's reflections | Curation as a tool for teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Last week, I explained that I had set up Diigo and EduClipper for our students(see post here).  Week One is over and they have had a taste and I am happy with the progress in this short time...I can already see that they are showing signs of reading sites with an eye for curating – developing some critical thinking about the resources. I am happy with that but always on the look out for ways to extend the idea.
