Curation in Learning | Ben Betts is...

Curation in Learning | Ben Betts is... | Designing Learnovations | Scoop.it

Ben Betts: We can think of digital curation as being useful to us in four broad roles that I’m calling Inspiration, Aggregation, Integration and Application. Inspiration is how I term curation that is done by other people on your behalf, outside of a formal learning environment.  Aggregation is the same thing, but done within a formal learning context.  Integration is a more personal curation process; how individuals blend new learning experiences with existing thoughts.  And finally Application is how individuals apply new insights in the real world; how we individually manage knowledge on a day-to-day basis.  I capture this flow in a simple matrix that demonstrates how the four types of curation can flow into each other in a continuous learning cycle:

WebAIM: Web Accessibility for Designers | Designing Learnovations | Scoop.it

"The focus of web accessibility is often on web development – the things that happen in HTML, CSS, or JavaScript after a site has been designed visually. Optimal accessibility should start much earlier, as part of the visual design process. We have created an infographic that highlights a few important principles of accessible design."

National Forum on Active Learning Classrooms

National Forum on Active Learning Classrooms | Designing Learnovations | Scoop.it
3rd Biennial National Forum on Active Learning Classrooms August 5-7, 2015Robert H. Bruininks HallUniversity of Minnesota222 Pleasant Street S.E.Minneapolis, MN 55455 Sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Education and the Center for Educational Innovation, University of Minnesota The 2015 National Forum on Active Learning Classrooms (NF-ALC) at the University of Minnesota focuses on advancing practice and research on active learning classroom spaces. The NF-ALC will feature new session formats (see the Submission Guidelines) designed to provide opportunities for participants to demonstrate innovative practices and research that leverage the advantages of technology-enhanced learning spaces and active learning pedagogies. Our expectation is that participants from a wide variety of institutions will attend the NF-ALC to a) examine common issues affecting the effective use of these spaces and chart a path for their resolution; b) share successful practices that have enriched the student and faculty experience in active learning classrooms; and c) build and deepen networks with colleagues in order to advance their campus efforts. The forum is framed by the alignment between the use of new learning spaces and achieving the academic priorities of many universities and colleges, such as increased retention, improved graduation rates, student engagement, emerging technologies, and global learning. Since these priorities are of broad interest to all working in higher education, international participation is most welcome. Forum Location Founded in 1851 as the state’s land-grant institution, the University of Minnesota is one of the state’s greatest assets and one of the most comprehensive universities in the United States. Located in the heart of the Minneapolis/Saint Paul metropolitan area, the campus is minutes from downtown Minneapolis. The Twin Cities campus is situated along the banks of the Mississippi River and on the rolling hills of Saint Paul. All conference meetings and presentations for the Forum will take place in Robert Bruininks Hall on the University of Minnesota campus. Opened in fall 2010, this state-of-the-art facility features active learning spaces that can accommodate class sizes of 27 to 171 students along with lecture-based spaces that seat up to 236 students. A wide variety of disciplines conduct their courses in this building each year, and it serves as a model space for the design of a 21st century education.
