A Guide to Use Diigo for Collaborative Curation

A Guide to Use Diigo for Collaborative Curation | Distributed Learning | Scoop.it

Recently I’ve had some inquiries about the best tool to use for a group to collaborate and share articles, videos, images, documents, etc. My initial thought was a wiki, but now that I’ve fully investigated the features of Diigo (dee’go), that is the tool I would recommend. Diigo, an online curation tool, is another one of my top 10 tools that I use every day.

 

I use Diigo to curate content, share it, and to find content. In Google Reader, as I read articles from the blogs to which I’ve subscribed, I will tag articles, sites, videos of interest, etc. using Diigo. These saved resources are available online and accessible from any Internet connected device. I can easily share specific resources.....

Tasato (et al) 2013 - Sharing Resources in Open Educational Communities

Tasato (et al) 2013 - Sharing Resources in Open Educational Communities | Distributed Learning | Scoop.it

In this article we emphasize the importance of sharing resources in open educationalcommunities (OEC), analysing the role of OERs and OEC in teachers' lifelonglearning. Investigating their current usage, we aim to discover whether their interweavings could be an effective approach to support sharing of resources among teachers and to promote new educational practices.

Thanks to Ana Cristina Pratas for sharing this resource.  I found the site provided a wealth of resources addressing education theories such as learning and cognitive, learner centered, and inquiry strategies.  I will definitely be sharing this site with my preservice students.

Blended Learning Innovations: 10 Major Trends

Blended Learning Innovations: 10 Major Trends | Distributed Learning | Scoop.it
"Blended learning is constantly evolving. And most of the innovations and refinements have been developed to support student-centered learning. That means leveraging technology into learning activities, in and out of the classroom. There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards."

#twitterchat: Why Teachers Like Learning Models

""Recently, #cohort21 hosted a twitter chat on a topic near and dear to our hearts: learning models and frameworks.We have our own ideas about what they’re so important, but this isn’t about us, is it?This being 2014, the #twitterchat conversation, of course, quickly turned to SAMR and TPACK, and educators shared their favorite versions, how they used them, and what future needs in the space might be. Archived twitter chats make for wonderful quick reads, and can include some gems (the Starbucks analogy, for example), so, here you go. #twitterchat: Why Teachers Like Learning Models, all in one place."
