Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.

luiy's curator insight, May 6, 2:04 PM

What is needed in education is something like a Personal Learner Knowledge Graph (PLKG): a clear profile of what a learner knows. It doesn’t matter where the learner learned things – work, volunteering, hobbies, personal interest, formal schooling, etc. What matters is that learners are aware of what they know and how this is related to the course content/curriculum. In a sense, PLKG is like the semantic web or Google Knowledge Graph: a connected model of learner knowledge that can be navigated and assessed and ultimately “verified” by some organization in order to give a degree or designation (or something like it).

 

If the education system can make the transition to learner knowledge graphs, instead of mainly content, the system can start to be far more intelligent than it currently is. For example, if I’m a student who spends summer months idly consuming beverages, I will develop a different skill set than someone who spent their summer volunteering and working (see video below for a discussion I had with Steve Paikin on the Agenda). Yet when the two of us start university in fall, the system normalizes our knowledge to the curriculum. We get the same content even though we are different people with completely different skills and knowledge.

A framework for interaction and cognitive engagement in connectivist learning contexts

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 3, 11:40 PM
Abstract

Interaction has always been highly valued in education, especially in distance education (Moore, 1989; Anderson, 2003; Chen, 2004a; Woo & Reeves, 2007; Wang, 2013; Conrad, in press). It has been associated with motivation (Mahle, 2011; Wen-chi, et al., 2011), persistence (Tello, 2007; Joo, Lim, & Kim, 2011), deep learning (Offir, et al., 2008) and other components of effective learning. With the development of interactive technologies, and related connectivism learning theories (Siemens, 2005a; Downes, 2005), interaction theory has expanded to include interactions not only with human actors, but also with machines and digital artifacts. This paper explores the characteristics and principles of connectivist learning in an increasingly open and connected age. A theory building methodology is used to create a new theoretical model which we hope can be used by researchers and practitioners to examine and support multiple types of effective educational interactions. Inspired by the hierarchical model for instructional interaction (HMII) (Chen, 2004b) in distance learning, a framework for interaction and cognitive engagement in connectivist learning contexts has been constructed. Based on cognitive engagement theories, the interaction of connectivist learning is divided into four levels: operation interactionwayfinding interaction,sensemaking interaction, and innovation interaction. Connectivist learning is thus a networking and recursive process of these four levels of interaction.

Alina Ghimpu-Hague's curator insight, May 8, 2:24 AM

Aims to contribute to the construction of a more nuanced framework for connectivist practice by proposing a theoretical model that integrates two of connectivism's core concepts, Wayfinding Interaction and Sensemaking Interaction, with aspects of Bloom's revised taxonomy.

... ok, MOOCS the solution! ... and one of the main drivers for change: disrupting differently best and average universities.

Unfortunately, big, best universities will sell their MOOCs in the global higher education market.

The future? Following the author, «employment in the industry would drop by nearly 30% and more than 700 institutions would shut their doors. The rest would need to reinvent themselves to survive».

These quantities are not supported by any documented model, nevertheless.
