Learning Professionals and Their Roles as Curators

Learning Professionals and Their Roles as Curators | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it
Over the past two weeks, we've looked at Filtering: A Challenge and Responsibility for Learning Professionals, and Curation: A Core Competency for Learning Professionals.

..

So what does this all mean to a learning and performance professional? How will what we do look differently when we add curation to our skill sets?  Consider these examples:
  • Social media usage continues to rise as a means for supporting social learning. Learning and performance professionals will need to be a part of the communities that emerge, possibly even serving as community managers. Technology could be used to analyze the sharing going on and spot potential trends (as a simplified example, consider a word cloud). As a curator, learning and performance professionals would seek out these themes and trends and elevate them to higher visibility across the entire organization.
  • In a world where anyone can create content, our need to create content to address a learning and performance need is  dramatically reduced.  Learning and performance professionals would function as curators of content, connecting workers with existing resources both internally and externally that support performance. 
  • The definition of 'course' will likely change in the future.  Currently course content is constrained and controlled, usually behind an LMS portal login.  Courses are becoming increasingly open, allowing learners and workers to find and reference their own resources.Massively Open Online Courses (MOOC) are a step in this direction. In this open format, learning professionals can help curate the shared resources, highlighting those that resonate best with the objectives of the program.
Curation is here, and it's already having an impact on the learning and performance profession. The technology is readily available to bring curation into organizations, and many forward-thinking organizations are already using it to their advantage. If you aren't already enhancing your learning and performance strategies via curation, you should be enhancing your awareness and skill sets in this area.  It isn't so much a matter of 'If' your learning and performance programs will be impacted by curation; it's a matter of 'When'.  

The only question is: Will you be ready to support it?

ETMOOC: Who Owns Your Education Data?

Who Owns Your Education Data?(and Why Does It Matter?) Audrey Watters @audreywatters #ETMOOC

...

I have given a number of talks lately on this topic: who owns education data? (And will give a couple more next week -- on a panel at SXSWedu and then, a related but expanded version as a keynote at WebWise.)

I'm not sure why the topic has resonated so deeply with me lately -- perhaps it's all the talk outside the ed-tech sector about the promises of big data; perhaps it's the metaphor of mining vis-a-vis data mining; perhaps it's this new obsession with becoming "data-driven" that I hear politicians posit for schools and students (and thus all the ed-tech products that follow suit); perhaps it's that I am both intrigued and concerned by the emerging field of learning analytics; perhaps it's because I continue to be frustrated by our lack of attention to terms of service and to control of our content (which is data); perhaps it's that I struggle with thinking through exactly how to navigate the personal and the public demands for sharing education data.

Anyway, last night I facilitated a session as part of ETMOOC, a MOOC about education technology and media, organized by Alec Couros.  Here's a link to the webinar recording and a link to my slides, along with the wonderful visual notes taken by the even-more-wonderful Giulia Forsythe.

What should every teacher in the 21st century know and be able to do?

That’s an interesting question. After just now seeing this excellent post on educatorstechnology.com, I thought I’d contribute to the conversation.

I added the twist of ranking them from least complex to most complex, so novices can start at the bottom, and you veterans out there can skip right to 36.

20 Most Popular Learning Management Systems [INFOGRAPHIC] | WPLMS 1. #moodle 2. #edmodo 3. #blackboard compare not only users, but social activity!

20 Most Popular Learning Management Systems [INFOGRAPHIC] | WPLMS 1. #moodle 2. #edmodo 3. #blackboard compare not only users, but social activity! | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

In recent years, one thing has become abundantly clear: the learning management system market is growing by leaps and bounds.  I remember the days when the only viable LMS was Blackboard – and the cost for implementation was somewhere to the tune of $25,000.  Well, times have changed (for the better… except for Blackboard) in that there are plenty of new accessible options available, and for multiple different software platforms (for example, the upcoming LearnDash WordPress LMS plugin).

The biggest shift in this market in recent years has not been the technology (although there have certainly been advances), but in the expectations of the consumer.  Today it isn’t enough to offer a piece of software – people want solutions.  They want advice and guidance in the best ways to utilize the functionality of their LMS, and they want it from industry professionals who have “been there, done that”.

Heiko Idensen's insight:

Very interesting  comparison:
compare not only usery, but social activity!

Principles for effective E-learning design using the Constructivist Theory
A successful e e-learning course is most effective when developed using a course design model, and with consideration of principles of a given learning theory, such as the constructivist theory (core principles below).


  • Emphasize the affective domain, make instruction relevant to the learner, help learners develop attitudes and beliefs that will support both present learning and lifelong learning, and balance teacher-control with personal autonomy in the learning environment.
  • Provide contexts for both autonomous learning and learning within relationships to other students. Group discussion, projects, collaboration as well as independent.
  • Provide reasons for learning within the learning activities themselves. Have students identify relevance and purpose.
  • Use the strategic exploration of errors to strengthen the learners involvement with intentional learning processes and self-feedback.


I look forward to the evolution of ‘educator as curator’, and constructivist – I am sure there will be more to come.  Keep Learning

Online Learning May Not Help Those Who Need Help Most

Online Learning May Not Help Those Who Need Help Most | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

"A study by Di Xu and Shanna Smith Jaggars... finds that students perform worse in online courses than they do in traditional ones... The authors looked at the results of more than 40,000 students and their results in nearly 500,000 courses and found that those enrolled in online courses were more likely to drop out or fail compared to their peers taking classes face-to-face with the instructor... Males, Black students, younger kids and those who already had lower grade-point-average had the widest gap between their performance in online courses and those taught in a typical classroom."

Electronic Arts announces 'SimCity' for the classroom

Electronic Arts announces 'SimCity' for the classroom | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it
Today, Electronic Arts announced that it is currently developing SimCityEDU, an online educational game based on the latest reboot of the company's popular SimCity franchise. Created in a partnership with GlassLabs, SimCityEDU is intended to be a learning tool for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and the game's curriculum will conform with US Common Core Standards. According to EA, teachers will be able to design and share lesson plans for the game online, and students will use the tool to learn important lessons in city planning, environmentalism, and social-economics as their Sims suffer or flourish based on their actions. EA has not yet announced a release date for the new educational platform, but it will likely hit classrooms after SimCity's highly-anticipted March 5th launch.

Students today learn through groups most of which are virtual. They learn and share what they know through social media.Simply put: they network to learn. As teachers and educators we need to  help them thrive in these new learning environments and this can not be done unless we ourselves know and appreciate the concept of networked learning.
To shed some light on this concept, I am sharing with you one of the most popular videos done in this regard and I am also introducing you to a great graphic on connected learning . Check them below and let us know what you think of them. Enjoy

The future of learning is the future of work | Harold Jarche

The future of learning is the future of work | Harold Jarche | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

The answer, I believe, is to use nearly unlimited information, self-publishing, and ridiculously easy group-forming to our advantage. Thierry de Baillon, co-author of themost popular post on this blog, writes about “a new set of managerial and operational paradigms” in My Social Business Predictions, namely: no boundaries; trusted exchanges; a culture of experimentation; and emergent and adaptive structures.

Returning to the initial quote on this post, the author, Dougald, shows some concrete examples of new operational paradigms: Centers for New WorkAccess SpaceWest Norwood Feast; the rise of house concerts; and unMonasteries. I know of many more examples, and organizations like Shareable are highlighting these new models and experiments.

So it’s important to note that it’s not really the future of learning we should be concerned with, because it is merely a symptom of the future of work. It is becoming obvious that individuals need to take control of their learning in a world where they are simultaneously connected, mobile, and global; while conversely contractual, part-time, and local. Watch how work is changing and you will see how education and training will change.
