Kate JohnsonMcGregor's curator insight, June 9, 9:05 AM

In the Learning Commons community, this makes sooooo much sense. Inquiry based learning is all about questioning, gathering, re-thinking, re-purposing and sharing information. Teachers and t-l's who practice and model curation in course design will be better equipped to instruct their students in curation. Love this! 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 24, 7:07 PM

Teachers are curators and gatherers by nature. In a manner of speaking, they are hunters and gatherers as they search for and gather resources for learning.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, Today, 8:18 AM

Why reinvent the wheel? thoughtful presentation that talks about teacher curations.

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | ePick & Mix | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

"Great teaching can be learned. This web site provides tools and resources that support ambitious science instruction at the middle school and high school levels. Ambitious teaching deliberately aims to get students of all racial, ethnic, and class backgrounds to understand science ideas, participate in the discourses of the discipline, and solve authentic problems. We describe 4 core instructional strategies that support this kind of teaching. These “high-leverage” practices make up the Science Learning Framework (below), and have been selected based on extensive research of how young people learn science, on authentic forms of science activity, and how teachers learn to appropriate new practices."

Sue Gould's curator insight, June 19, 2:09 PM

The face of educational instruction is changing once again.  The relaxed manner in which these notes are representing important content is fabulous.  A cirle is almost complete - as a child this sort of doodling in class was stopped and a punishable offense!  Yet so many tutors, educators, and trainers are idealists and visualise while learning and observing the world around them.  It is great to see that this representation of learning is on a comeback of acceptance.

Managing iPad Videos in Schools- Visual Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ePick & Mix | Scoop.it

""Managing iPad YouTube in Schools" is a visual guide created by iPadWells 

from iPad4Schools.  

 

In this guide iPadWells walks teachers through the process they use in their school to create, share and teach using videos. YouTube is the principal video hosting used in this guide. That being said, it does not mean that the guide is not relevant for your teaching situation even if YuTube is banned in your school. You can still benefit from the tips and ideas provided by iPadWells on how to create enhanced videos using a wide variety of apps and share them with students who can access them at home."
