End of School Roundup: Using Creation & Curation in Education | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
According to the Content Marketing Institute, original content should be the cornerstone of your content marketing. And curating content can raise your brand awareness and bring more visitors to your website. So how do these two fundamental marketing pieces work together? Very nicely. In terms of content marketing in any industry, how you marry creation and curation could mean your success or failure.

Specifically in education, EdTech consultants, teachers and librarians are doing a great job combining creation and curation to showcase student creativity, school information and thought leadership. We've pulled four worthy examples of users in the EdTech space who exemplify using powerful online tools to master creation and curation consistently. Continue reading →

Why are citations important in research writing? – Writing For Research – Medium

Why are citations important in research writing? – Writing For Research – Medium | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
All academic research and argument has seven essential characteristics. It is formally stated. Each work contributes to an advanced and specialist conversation. And academic work tackles difficult issues. It forms part of a cumulative and collegial endeavour. Research is evidence-based, and its provenance can always be checked. Research is also demanding and consistent in assessing empirical ‘facts’. All these features mean that referencing and citing are vital components of academic practice. The decisions that scientists and academics make about including or not including citations to support their arguments play a very important role in conditioning how their colleagues regard and evaluate their work. The Figure below unpacks a bit further the reasons why citations are so important, set against the seven criteria mentioned above.

I just got onto this. They are very easy to set up and more focussed than sites like Pinterest. Curate a collection for each class and control how they look and the title.

It’s a Mistake to Mistake Content for Content - Los Angeles Review of Books

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
