The Importance of Content Curation for Digital Citizenship and How To Use Pearltrees in Teaching Environments

Robin Good's curator insight, April 26, 2:04 PM



Content curation can be of help to teachers and educators interested in guiding students in learning and appreciating the importance of active digital citizenship.


Jane Schmude, an Australian education graduate and a passionate teacher-librarian, outlines the reasons for such importance while providing also a good 5-minute visual introduction to Pearltrees as an ideal curation tool to carry out this type of project.


Useful intro for teachers, educators and librarians interested to learn more about the opportunities offered by curation.



Pragmatical. 7/10

Miloš Bajčetić's curator insight, May 27, 1:40 AM

Very interesting video, but regarding point 3. that "We are moving to right-brain work-jobs" I must note there are no "right-brain" jobs. This left-right brain distinction is oversimplified neuromyth.

 

“The latest findings from the real neuroscience of creativity suggest that the right brain/left brain distinction does not offer us the full picture of how creativity is implemented in the brain.* Creativity does not involve a single brain region or single side of the brain.” (http://t.co/3l5nM7IsEi)

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 28, 5:46 AM

The future of work. 

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, June 9, 10:53 PM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Media and technology futurist Gerd Leonhardoutlines his vision of the future of work given the many profound changes shaping the planet during the coming decades.

 

Key highlights: 

 

We will be able to offload tedious, repetitive work to computers and robots who will replace rapidly many of our present jobs

At the same time entirely new jobs will be created - for example:
Digital Curation 
Social Engineering
Artificial Intelligence Designers 

We are moving to right-brain work-jobs - that is: storytelling, emotions, creativity and imagination, negotiation 

Education prepares us by having us learn things that we may need later. But in most cases we don't need those things but we rather need to know how to learn new things.

More craftmanship-type of jobs like cooks, makers, hackers, coders, will fluorish as computers-machines cannot replicate such skills (yet)

OR.....

"What this means is that if last night in the privacy of your own home and from your own computer, you were visiting some potentially embarrassing websites (porn, stalk-your-ex.com, Sarah Palin fansites, WebMD's "What that weird rash might be", or whatever), a record of this activity will appear on your school computer when you access your browser the next morning." - Doug Johnson


Convenience is great! But could our private digital footprints lose us our jobs? Be professional people! At all times, in all ways, we must be like Caesar's wife - above reproach.

Vellum acts as a reading list  for your Twitter feed, finding all the links that are being shared by those you follow on Twitter and displaying them each with their full titles and descriptions. 

This flips the Twitter model, treating the links as primary and the commentary as secondary (you can still see all the tweets about each link, but they are less prominent). 


Vellum puts a spotlight on content, making it easy to find what you should read next.
