Why Content Curation and Crowdsourcing Will Change Everything

Why Content Curation and Crowdsourcing Will Change Everything | constructivism: the lost art of learning | Scoop.it

From the original article by Tom George on his "Internet Billboards".
Here are some interesting excerpts from the post about content curation.
"After having spent the better part of four years curating content from renowned bloggers, journalists and authors as well as building a platform here on Internet Billboards, which has evolved into a wonderful community of content curator’s.

Here is my definition of content curation. A content curator is someone who finds, organizes, presents and shares valuable information (content) in many forms, on a specific topic, in a way that provides special context and or a unique engagement with his or her readers. In actuality when done correctly, over time it positions the curator as an expert in his or her respective field and defines their reputation as a thought leader.

A good curator will mix curation with his or her own original content, to give interpretations for the express purpose of allowing others to form their own conclusions.
...
Why curation and crowdsourcing will and should become more important to you. I will give you ten reasons.
1. There is just too much content;
2. Social Sites Are Full Of Spam;
3. Privacy concerns with big data;
4. Limiting risk and using many minds;
5. Technology must assist us and help us not hinder us;
6. People Will recognize the need to build meaningful relationships;
7. Information will flow freely;
8. Trust and authority will be the new currency;
9. Curation helps you establish relationships with thought leaders;
10. Crowd Sourcing can make things possible..."

There is a glaring omission from the benefits list of crowd sourcing and content curation in terms of pedagogical value - please add in: it increases the possibility of constructivist learning.

constructivism: the lost art of learning
Humans learn by building on information they receive, creating new schemas in their mind, evaluating them, and putting them into practice. When new information presents itself, the process begins again. That's constructivism.
It's active learning, experiential, participatory, authentic, and real. This curation of resources serves to inspire those considering re-establishing the lost art of constructivism into their classrooms.

3 Reasons To Encourage Student-Generated Content

3 Reasons To Encourage Student-Generated Content | constructivism: the lost art of learning | Scoop.it
Criticisms from adults about the quality of student-generated content are unfair, because up until now, all theories and assumptions are mostly drawn from youth engagement in entertainment and gaming contexts, and not from educational contexts.
Paul Moss - teacher, learner's insight:

Students are capable of harnessing the power of social media - they just need the opportunity. Good teachers will not only encourage students to participate in user-generated learning, but also assist students in developing and strengthening the emotional capacities required in such a learning context.

internet - the liberator

Long live the collaborative collective intelligence the internet functions by -  before capital gets in the way

Paul Moss - teacher, learner's insight:

The development of this extraordinarily powerful technology has in fact depended on a mass of informal, innovatory, intellectual activity – 'hacking' – on whose creativity commerce constantly draws even as it criminalizes it. It was precisely out of capital's inability to contain such activity that there emerged the astounding growth of the Internet. This is surely the quintessential institution of ‘general intellect’. For, despite all the admitted banalities and exclusivities of Internet practice, one at moments glimpses in its global exchanges what seems like the formation of a polycentric, communicatively-connected, collective intelligence. (Dyer-Witheford 1999: 498)

Paul Moss - teacher, learner's insight:

The power of liberation. Letting students shape their own learning is one of the most powerful techniques a teacher has in their repertoire. Unfortunately, it most cases, it can only be used in a clandestine fashion, hoping to not upset the applecart that is school administration. Fortunately, as this article shows, there are some teachers and schools who lead through innovation, through trusting students, and through sheer guts.
