TL Forum 2014: Flintoff, Mellow and Clark - Digital curation: Opportunities for learning, teaching, research and professional development

TL Forum 2014: Flintoff, Mellow and Clark - Digital curation: Opportunities for learning, teaching, research and professional development | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
The concept of digital curation has evolved from its original use. While the digital preservation of artifacts is still the primary domain of digital curation, due to Web 2.0/social media applications it has allowed anyone to easily create a topic centered library online to share with the world. Assets found online can now be quickly collated into a visually appealing web site using freely available tools. This descriptive paper explores the potential use of digital curation within three tertiary institutions.

7. Linkrot: The Very Short Lifespan of Online Content and Resources — Content Curation Official Guide — Medium | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Linkrot “also known as link death or link breaking, describes the process by which hyperlinks (either on individual websites or the Internet in general) point to web pages, servers or other resources that have become permanently unavailable”.(Wikipedia)
It should be a responsibility of the whole human civilization to preserve our digitized information in a safe and reliable matter or we risk losing much of our history, knowledge and data.
And that’s where curation plays a very important role.

Beth Holland - Edutopia: Take Note: How to Curate Learning Digitally | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Whether students choose to handwrite, sketch, or type their notes, the challenge lies not in choosing, but in creating a system that allows them to ultimately curate, synthesize, and reflect on what they learn..


Via Nik Peachey, Alexandria Yaxley, Dennis T OConnor
Peter Mellow's insight:

Filtering digital information is a survival skill.

 

Teaching curation skills means teaching critical thinking as part of the note taking, and information gathering process.  You can weave this skill into any curriculum you teach. You serve your subject area as you build thinking skills and implement standards.

Peter Mellow's insight:
April 6th 2016 - To date, I have found Pindex very disappointing as a potential education tool. A very limited toolset, perhaps better suited for a school audience or the general public. Hopefully they will take feedback on board and add some of the features that are missing.

Participate Learning Unveils Collaboration, Collection Tools for Educators -- Campus Technology | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Participate Learning, formerly called appoLearning, has launched Collections, a new curation and collaboration tool for educators.

Participate Learning's Collections feature lets teachers create a digital folder of online educational resources, such as Web sites, apps and videos, and organize them according to subject, unit, lesson, topic or other organizational criteria. They can even add their own files from Dropbox, Google Drive or other cloud storage services. Any resource with a Web address can be added to a collection.

Teachers can then share their collections with colleagues and invite them to discuss items in real time. They also have the option of building collaborative collections on topics of shared interest.

It’s a Mistake to Mistake Content for Content - Los Angeles Review of Books | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
In this way our role as librarians and archivists has outpaced our role as cultural consumers. Engaging with media in a traditional sense is often the last thing we do, that is (like my Feldman experience), if we ever get to it at all. In the digital ecosystem, the apparatuses surrounding the artifact are more engaging than the artifact itself. Management (acquisition, distribution, archiving, filing, redundancy) is the cultural artifact’s new content. Context is the new content.

» Data Curation as Publishing for the Digital Humanities Journal of Digital Humanities | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
“Publishing” has assumed a large role in discussions of how scholarship is changing. One reason is that, in these discussions, the mechanisms of publishing come to stand in for the larger and more complex processes of creating, vetting, and circulating knowledge. Some of the sense of unmet need that arises in considerations of the emerging, alternative publishing methods for those working in digital humanities comes from the problems with this shorthand.

Best Way To Learn Any Subject: Curation — Content Curation Official Guide — Medium

Best Way To Learn Any Subject: Curation - Content Curation Official Guide - Medium
Why is content curation so relevant for learning?


Because the best way to learn something is not by memorizing facts, formulas, numbers or dates as we are taught since elementary school. The best way to learn anything is by diving into it.


When you memorize something, all you do is imprint that fact or info into your memory in a way that can be easily recalled. But memorizing that fact has nothing to do with actually “knowing”, which entails your understanding or comprehending of why that fact it is the way it is.

Pindex Promises Pinterest for Educators -- Campus Technology

Pindex Promises Pinterest for Educators -- Campus Technology | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Although Stephen Fry has left Twitter, the popular British actor and writer hasn't given up on social media altogether. Numerous sources have reported that Fry is involved in an education start-up being pitched as a "Pinterest for education." Pindex allows teachers, students and anybody else to create online pinboards for collecting "the best educational material."

A "board" in Pindex parlance is a collection of content  —  images, video and documents. To add content to their boards, users get a bookmark button from the site and then click it as they browse the Web to capture a specific image and link. Educators can post quizzes to their boards or "completion awards" that visitors can earn by getting 100 percent on the test or checking each post on the board
Peter Mellow's insight:
April 6th 2016 - To date, I have found Pindex very disappointing as a potential education tool. A very limited toolset, perhaps better suited for a school audience or the general public. Hopefully they will take feedback on board and add some of the features that are missing.

More than a desire for text: Online participation and the social curation of content

More than a desire for text: Online participation and the social curation of content | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Abstract

Why and on what bases do people choose content and share it in an online environment? At the centre of Henry Jenkins’ theory of convergence culture lie in the transforming links between active, participative audiences, media content and media corporations. However, the ‘textually motivated’ desire to participate in the circulation of and control over texts is just one among other key motives for the dissemination and recirculation of content. Ethnography-based research conducted at Masaryk University in the Czech Republic suggests that when exploring participation in textuality, performative self-exposure and self-presentation must be taken into account as well as the context of audiences’ everyday life. Thus, I propose to approach participation as based not only on a ‘will to text’ but also on a dialectical relationship between a ‘will to self-performance’ and a ‘will to conformity’. These three factors then impact on the social curation of content – a reflexive process in which members of the audience construct texts for consumption and recirculation.
