A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify

A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify | Curating Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Sherry Stones is presenting the workshop: “A Flipped Classroom: Students as Curators with Storify”.

Storify will be used to demonstrate design multimodal/multimedia research-based assignments, due to its features such as Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos.  

Most of the expected outcomes of the workshop can be associated to teaching and learning in general.

 

Important ideas:

 

a) Storify has a great educational potential;

b) You can organize Storify content based on theme or topic;

c) You can easily embed Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos;

d) It helps students develop research, synthesis and presentation skills;

f) It helps students to evaluate the credibility and relevance of web sources;

g) It enables teachers to set assignments and rubric;

h) You can embed a Storify page into a Blog;

i) Other types of Open Access Content are great for embedding on Storify, such as: Xtranormal, Goanimate, Animoto animations; Infographics and Flicker images; Google Docs; Vimeo, Big Think, and Academic Earth videos; Webcomics; Prezi and Google Slideshows; Learning Objects.

"

Collection is additive. Curation is subtractive.

Collecting is for yourself, curating is for others."

Terry Elliott's comment, July 9, 2012 10:57 AM
Don't agree with either of these dichotomies. Curating is ultimately for oneself, too. It is just that there are intersecting interests in sharing with an audience which may also not be a totally altruistic act. Collecting adds but every addition subtracts from the totality of what could have been added. In other words my Diigo lists are collection but they are also curations based upon the filter that is me--admittedly a very unique and ill-defined filter. In almost every way a collection is a curation and every curation is a collection.

How curation tools can enhance academic practice

How curation tools can enhance academic practice | Curating Learning Resources | Scoop.it

"Do you suffer from information overload? Do you find it difficult to organise and process the things you find online so that you can apply them productively in your day-to-day working life?"

 

An interesting and personal account of curation for learning. According to the author, curation tools are used to facilitate the core practical tasks which anyone working on an information rich environment does: collecting, sorting, evaluating, and sharing information.

Curating vs Collecting--Saying Yes to Your No by Doug Ellis

Curating vs Collecting--Saying Yes to Your No by Doug Ellis | Curating Learning Resources | Scoop.it

"Curate as a verb actually means to “be in charge of”, and is one of the most underappreciated skills and talents in the arts and in consumerist American culture. Those disciplined choices, all that “negative (no) space” , make the difference between a fine art museum and a warehouse of stacked canvases. .."

The Curator by Miller Williams : The Poetry Foundation

The Curator by Miller Williams : The Poetry Foundation | Curating Learning Resources | Scoop.it

This poem represents to me the essence of what it means to be a curator. When you know your subject so well that you can recall it and share it with such poignance and accuracy that you can weave a story with it - retaining and attracting the attention of others. I'm thinking about the the impact this could have in the world of education and learning. Teachers should become curators, in this deeper sense, but to really deepen learning and transfer ownership of that learning, lets help students become curators.

Terry Elliott's comment, July 9, 2012 12:08 PM
Thanks for the poem. I think the poem also has something to do with our heroic selves. How do we rise to the occasion? In this case the occasion is living in decidedly interesting times. How can we 'curate' the universe for our students? That task is by definition heroic because it is impossible, yet...It is our job to draw up the 'catalogs' and the 'maps' and the 'FAQ's' and all the other ways of curating. But teaching is a different kind of curation. My question as a teacher is this: what are we curating--the content or the learner?
