Content Curation for Education and Learning: Robin Good @Emerge2012 Presentation-Map

Content Curation for Education and Learning: Robin Good @Emerge2012 Presentation-Map | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: I believe that content curation will play a very important role in the future of education and learning and this presentation-map focuses on this topic.

I have identified at least ten reasons that are transforming and weakening the education-certification system as it is now, and may rapidly give way to new ways of teaching, learning and getting certified which will likely involve a great deal of curation (both for those who teach/guide and those who want to learn).

 

In this presentation-map I am introducing the concept of curation for education, the key factors that I see are transforming traditional academic institutions and the learning industry in general, and the tools, resources and examples that are relevant to those working in these fields and wanting to find out more.

 

As part of my workshop session during the emerge2012 conference in which I have first presented these ideas, I have also created an "open", collaborative wiki-map where, you are welcome to contribute inspiring curated collections. You will find instructions on how to contribute to it at the end of this presentation.

Content Curation for Education and Learning: Live Workshop + Q&A - e/merge 2012

Content Curation for Education and Learning: Live Workshop + Q&A - e/merge 2012 | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Next Tuesday, July 10th I will be running a live online workshop on "content curation for education and learning" as part of the e/merge 2012 web conference.

 

My session (90 mins.) will focus on defining curation within an educational/learning context and analyzing the factors that will rapidly make curation a major new interest area. I will look at the key benefits that content curation may bring, as well as at the types of content curation that are possible and the key tools available to do it.

 

I will finally showcase a few interesting examples of curation at work, before diving into a "live" collaborative session in which I will be joined by participants in the creation of a collection of great examples of curated content for education/learning. 

 

A follow-up Q&A session is sheduled for the following week on Tue 17 at 12:15 GMT+2
