Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections | Student Curation: A new way of assessing student learning | Scoop.it

While there are a ton of essential skills that today's students need in order to succeed in tomorrow's world, learning to efficiently manage -- and to evaluate the reliability of -- the information that they stumble across online HAS to land somewhere near the top of the "Muy Importante" list.

bookwarrior's insight:

This educator describes how Scoop.it can be the tool by which you teach students to gather, manage, and evaluate information. I 100% agree with his caveat at the bottom that Scoop.it doesn't do the teaching but because it is so simple and seamless and allows for so much interaction and feedback between student curator and instructor, it is the perfect medium for it.

CMPs No. 5-6 – mobile coverage and curation | Digital Storytelling

Techniques: Digital Storytelling Medill School of Journalism – Spring 2011 TASK: Live blog and/or curate an event for your coverage
bookwarrior's insight:

Here, a journalism professor assigns students the task of live blogging an event with their mobile phones and then curating the those blogs. I think this would be a powerful way to experience the drafting process. Students would be summarizing and highlighting and notetaking live. Then when they curate they are gathering the notes and adding additional details and transitions. I think the only thing missing from this assignment is a reflection piece that asks students to evaluate the process and their growth.

NoodleTools Tutorial: iCyte Integration

bookwarrior's insight:

NoodleTools, an online bibliographic tool, has partnered with iCyte, a website curation tool, to provide a new archiving feature with the NoodleTools subscription. Now users can not only use NoodleTools to cite sources correctly, annotate sources, take notes, and outline, but also take a snapshot in time of the source itself and attach it to the citation. The user can digitally highlight the archived source, making it easy to mark important passages and easy for the instructor to determine what the student is trying to quote or paraphrase.

 

We've used this new feature heavily the last year and found it turns a plain Jane "Works Consulted" into a a dynamic, connected picture of the research process that lets the instructor and the student engage in a dialogue with the comments features.

Pearltrees lets you collect, organize and share everything you like.
bookwarrior's insight:

In this American History project, students select an event from the 20th century and develop three essential questions about it. Each question has two-four secondary questions that need to be answered in order to construct answers to the essential questions.

 

In this example, I used the curation tool Pearltrees as an example of how the essential questions could be mapped out as an alternative to the traditional outline. Beyond the benefit of visually conceptualizing each question's relationship to each other, I am able to "pearl" articles that help answer the questions and add comment pearls as well, essentially creating an alternative to the traditional Annotated Works Consulted.

 

Another benefit of Pearltrees is that students' Pearltrees could be shared and connected to one main tree for the whole class to access. Additionally, Pearltrees is collaborative and multiple users can edit the same tree.

Wuthering Heights

Lisa is using Pinterest, an online pinboard to collect and share what inspires you.
bookwarrior's insight:

As a former English teacher, I remember how identifying mood and tone were always particularly challenging for students. I think curation using Pinterest would be a great vehicle for helping students translate how they and the author feel and think about a book from visuals into text. 

 

I love this Pinterest board by Lisa Holmes which so redolently illustrates the mood and tone of Wuthering Heights. I would assign students to create a Pinterest board illustrating how they feel about the book and how they think the author feels about the book. Then the next day in class I would bring the Pinterest boards up on the white board and lead a brainstorming session on what words the visuals evoke. We could then categorize the words into mood vs. theme and discuss passages that in the book that "match" the picture. Voila! Students now have descriptive words and supporting text to discuss mood and tone in the novel Wuthering Heights.
