Connie Wise's insight:

Features a focus on 5 specific aspects of curation

Anu Ojaranta's curator insight, September 4, 2013 3:02 AM

"Content curation not only involves finding relevant and valuable information, but also filtering out unnecessary, inappropriate and inaccurate sources. It combines creativity with analytical skills, can be easily applied in a collaborative context, and also provides an opportunity for peer assessment and feedback as individuals or groups can also rate or evaluate the resources chosen by others."

Nice explaination about content curation as a learning tool!

Nevermore Sithole's curator insight, October 14, 2013 12:24 PM

Article argues that curation is not a new concept for libraries since Librarians select, organise and preserve information. Further, the article argues that content curation involves higher order skills and the ability to appraise sources effectively in order to sieve through large volumes of information. Above all, the article discussess the concepts, aggregation, distillation, elevation, mash-ups and chronology.

Responsibility vs Accountability

Responsibility vs Accountability | Common Core Oklahoma |
If learners take responsibility for their learning, they will be more motivated to learn. If teachers are accountable for their learning, then there is no reason to be motivated other than for a grade.

Connie Wise's insight:

My goal is always to encourage students to take ownership of their learning.  What you learn is yours-- it can't be taken away!

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 15, 2013 12:10 PM

Responsibility means a moral obligation and something taken upon one's self.

Accountability is more of a social contract or social obligation. Accountability can be measurable. If teachers are accountable for their learners' learning, then why would learners feel responsible for their own learning?

When learners feel a sense of ownership, they want to engage in academic tasks and persist in learning. If teachers and learners are learners first, then responsibility comes with being a learner. Learners of all ages become responsible for their learning when they own and drive their learning.

So what is it? Teachers and learners need to be accountable for their own learning by taking responsibility for their learning. What do you see as the difference between accountability and responsibility?
