Cellphones and social media protect students from culture shock, and that's a loss.
Alejandro Tortolini's insight:

El autor opina que las redes sociales y los telefonos celulares ayudan a uniformar la cultura e impedir la diversidad; dealguna manera es algo similar a lo que postula Pariser en "The filter bubble".

How to Use Pinterest without Breaking the Law

How to Use Pinterest without Breaking the Law | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it
Pinterest allows its users to create virtual bulletin boards by pinning content from across the web, including photos and recipes.

 

There’s no doubt that Pinterest has exploded in popularity in recent months.

 

But with that boom has come concerns for some users about copyright law.

What kind of digital curator are you?

What kind of digital curator are you? | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

This is an interesting workshop presentation given at #converge11 by Joyce Seitzinger. It has a focus on curation in EduTech but is generic as well in a lot of aspects.

 

In particular, I love the distinction she makes from slide 22 onward between all types of "curators": a fun way of showing what curation best practices should be all about.

I've been exploring the idea of 'the social media classroom' and how I view teachers with an emerging role as curators, but also teaching student the skills of curation so they can get the right resources in an age of ubiquitous information. I'll have to keep in touch.

Nice one thanks for this. I have been following your Scoops. You can also set up and share your scoops on Internet Billboards, it's very easy to set up and do and there is no extra effort just a couple clicks. Like this http://t.co/63g5ViEq Also do you have a blog? Just curious.

Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills

Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are interested in exploring content curation as a possible venue for innovating teaching and learning approaches, you will find lots of valuable information in this new article by @NancyW entitled Developing Future Workskills Through Content Curation.

 

In it she points to a study conducted last year, the Apollo Research Institute Future Workskills 2020, that identifies critical workskills needed for future jobs and how fitting "content curation" may be in cultivating and refining many of those.

 

She writes: "A closer look suggests that critical workforce skills identified in this \ study can be easily aligned with the skills practiced with content curation.


The skills a student employs to successfully curate information include curiosity, media literacy, ability to make connections across disciplines, information literacy, the ability to evaluate and understand perspective, synthesize and evaluate information, and a good dose of self-direction."

 

"Future Workskills 2020 suggests a monumental shift and change needs to begin now in our education system.

 

These skills can be developed through the process of content curation.

 

Content curation has the added benefit of helping students find their passions for and take ownership of their learning..."

 

 

Right on target. Recommended. 8/10

Top 10 Sites for Curating the Web

Top 10 Sites for Curating the Web | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

"With the amount of information that is available on the internet, it's important for teachers to filter through websites to find relevant information in a timely manner. As a blogger, I believe we "curate" the web automatically to help keep things organized and to convey information in as detailed and easy a way as possible.

 

Now, with the addition of dedicated websites, people can curate the web and save information on their own while sharing this vital information with others."
