Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 12, 10:26 AM

Elevator pitches about who you are or what you do are always challenging. I don't even like the word 'pitch' because it sounds like you are just pushing a message at someone when what you really want to do is start a conversation.


I do like the word 'trigger' because that's the purpose of these few lines about yourself -- to trigger a conversation where you get to tell your story.


And this article shows us a new and very creative way to get that done: draw your Elevator piece! Use a cartoon. Use a powerful visual. Now that will get people chatting with you!


What fun. This might not work for everyone, but my guess is that it can be wildly applicable. And it's also another terrific way to brand your company and stand out from the crowd. How about putting it on the back of your business card?


Enjoy this creative post and the opportunities it presents.

Audrey's curator insight, March 21, 7:30 PM

Curating is about finding and selecting information in order to learn about a subject. Youngsters can be encouraged to do this  pre-school.  This motivational 21st century skill can be encouraged at home. with educational games toys and and books which stimulates interest.  For example children can learn about  science by interacting with Chemistry Lab; Horrible Science - explosive experiments; Newton's Cradle and Science Museum.  By the time they get to school they are already full of curiosity and ready to increase their knowledge.  Audrey curating for www.homeschoolsource.co.uk

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, March 30, 9:27 AM

By Robin Good,

Here's a short first-hand report highlighting how an 8th grade social studies class teacher (Terri Inloes) has fully leveraged the content curation potential to let her students dive, discover and make sense of topics (in this case social reform movements) that they had not studied before. All by themselves.


Here the steps taken to make this happen:


a) By using the Question Formulation Technique, the teacher prepared pairs of photographs representing each of the reform movements, one picture dating back to the late 19th century, and another representing where that social reform movement stands in today’s society. 


b) After checking out all of the photos, students settled on the pair of pictures that most caught their interest.


c) They brainstormed and refined a set of specific questions, and then shared their thinking with the class. 

d) With the feedback received they selected the topic which they would curate. 

e) At this point students planned their research strategies. By using 5 different graphic organizers from the book Q Tasks, by Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, students were allowed to choose the one that they thought would help them the most in planning their keyword search strategies. 


f) Students were assigned WordPress blogs and provided basic instructions on how to use them to 

curate and publish their research work.


g) Discovery and real learning kicked in as students proceeded in collaborative groups to research and document their chosen topic. 


You can see some of the outcomes that this assignment produced right here:


General Conclusions

Voting Rights Inequality

http://tmsredvotingrights.d20blogs.org/


Mental Health Treatment
http://tmsorangementalhealthcaretreatments.d20blogs.org/


Prohibition Acts

http://tmsorangeprohibitionacts.d20blogs.org/ 

 



A very inspiring example of content curation can be effectively applied in the classroom with impressive results. 


Highly recommended. 9/10


Thanks to Nancy White of Innovations in Education for participating, writing and reporting about it.

 Thanks to Robin Good for the fine summary in this insight.
The ideas here offer a great classroom challenge to students.{Monica}

Russell Roberts's curator insight, February 28, 12:04 AM

A thought-provoking essay by science writer Robert Krulwich. In Krulwich's view, climate change and most of the environmental issues are directly attributable to human activity.  It has taken thousands of years to mold the planet into a vast support system for humankind.  Some of these changes have been especially destructive and have no easy remedies.  In our quest to support a growing world population, humans have bioengineered plants and animals to feed, clothe, and protect us, while at the same time upsetting ecosystems and natural patterns of change.  Krulwich believes human activities will eventually put our species in peril.  Something to think about.  Aloha, Russ.
