Helping Students Own the Learning Environment | Powerful Learning Practice | Curation for Learning | Scoop.it

"Reflection is such a huge tool for my own learning, and I feel like I’m getting better and better at finding ways to do this with students. It isn’t that I have never used student reflections to improve my own teaching. But now I’m learning how to get students to be better at making meaningful reflection part of their own learning process.
Here’s an example of what that means for my classroom practice. As we finished the last series of labs, one of my science classes felt that while they liked their current groupings, they could do better work with a triad instead of the traditional 4-person lab team. They believed that they had too much downtime, not enough to do, and that having smaller groups would alleviate this problem..."

Where Curation Tools and Curators Fail: Credit Attribution and Verification

Where Curation Tools and Curators Fail: Credit Attribution and Verification | Curation for Learning | Scoop.it

WebProNews interviewed Kate Brodock, the Executive Director of Digital and Social Media at Syracuse University about critical elements of successful content curation on the web. 

 

From her replies:

"People or organizations tend to falter in two areas.

 

a) In the verification process

b) when they should be giving proper attribution to the original content creator.

These two areas need special attention.”

 

...proper attribution of the original content creator is very important.

 

There are many ways to do this on various platforms, and there are generally recognized “best practices” that people use.

 

If you neglect the attribution part of the equation, this is when you get into sticky situations (no matter what your expert lawyer has told you).

 

...It pays to take a look at how each platform handles this aspect of curation and make sure you’re dotting your “I”s and crossing your ‘t’s.”

 

Right on the mark. 8/10

Beth Kanter's comment, November 12, 2011 8:33 AM
Goes right to your previous post about good/bad curation. How much is the curator vs the platform? What is the best way to give attribution (a link or a link with name/organization)?

The last bit about how the end reader feels about attribution was interesting as well.


“In your opinion, how much does it matter to the consumer if they’re obtaining information from its original source, as long as that source is credited? Consumers want information, and that means different things to different people. Many consumers are only concerned about the information they receive and being able to process it quickly because they’re reading these sites simply as a way to quickly digest information and move on. Other consumers may want to dig deeper, explore more sources, get to the original source and expand their body of information. And others still may actually NEED to have the original source for verification purposes or if they’re conducting research or writing an article. This depends on what type of consumer you are.”

I'd say this type of wordpress plugin like Zemanta, MyCurator etc. are indispensable for a professional Wordpress blogger or curator

Elsie Whitelock's curator insight, January 28, 2013 5:42 AM

Allows 2 topics or equivalent to 2 Wordpress categories at no charge. Note Wordpress versions supported 3.3 up to 3.5 only.

Curation has been on my mind a lot these holidays….actually, a lot longer than that really.

It’s been a long time since 2008 and first using Delicious with my students but it has been only 12 months since my introduction to Social Media as I now use it in my teaching and learning life. These two great presentations below have had me thinking about goals for the coming year.
