I'm rather surprised you consider this curation... It's not that it's product-centered, but that it's a limited pool from which any sort of curation can be done.

I think it's curation when they curate their all content from YouTube

"Connected learning is a necessity in this digital age. More and more of our students learning, attention, and access to information is taking place outside of classrooms and through online networks and exchanges. Connected learning, however, can help them cultivate the skills necessary for fulfilling adult lives and careers and that formal instruction alone could not afford."

How Well Do Students Perform? It Depends on Teachers’ Expectations

How Well Do Students Perform? It Depends on Teachers’ Expectations | EdD etc. | Scoop.it

"Teacher expectations can affect the performance of the children they teach. The first psychologist to systematically study this was a Harvard professor named Robert Rosenthal, who in 1964 did a wonderful experiment at an elementary school south of San Francisco. The idea was to figure out what would happen if teachers were told that certain kids in their class were destined to succeed, so Rosenthal took a normal IQ test and dressed it up as a different test."

Steven Blomdale's curator insight, March 6, 2013 7:35 PM

 In schools across Australia there is strong support for linking learning in Technologies with learning literacy skills. Learning in Technologies places a high priority on accurate and unambiguous communication (ACARA, 2013).Implementing digital technologies in learning areas such as English allows special education teachers to facilitate and accommodate the learning needs of students. This is achieved through integrating assistive devices such as the iPad and its applications to develop critical literacy skills needed in the 21st century.  Consequently special education teacher have a better opportunity to develop important General capabilities such as literacy (LIT) to allows student to become literate as they develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to interpret and use language confidently for learning and communicating in and out of school and for participating effectively in society (ACARA, 2013).

 

 

This website suggests various applications that can be used on the ipad to assist special needs students. The list of  applications were selected to improve and develop students reading, writing and spelling. They engage the students through making the activities, fun and engaging, which I think is important when teaching special needs students.

Using Physical and Virtual Printers with iPads - iPads in Education | EdD etc. | Scoop.it

The list of AirPrint enabled printers is growing but many of us just don't have one. Several app developers have jumped in to fill that void and in doing so, offer features way above and beyond simple printing from your iPad. And if you think this is only about paper based printing then think again. We'll also look at virtual printers for delivering content from an iPad to other computers, people and applications.
