Curation, digital literacies and information management

Curation, digital literacies and information management | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

As predicted by great curators, like Robin Good (1), curation is being acknowledged as a crucial skill in Education.

 

Creating and sharing content at this point of the evolution of the Web are insufficient. People need to navigate successfully: picking the best content, organizing it, and managing knowledge are possible through a curation process, which implies a step further.

Podcasting

Podcasting | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

Podcasting is useful for recording a teacher’s lesson or a student conversation. It can be used to create a homework assignment or even be part of a test. Students can use podcasts to interview each other about what they learned during the week. They can create a newscast, hold a debate, or run a radio show. Schools can use podcasts to make announcements via their Web site. Students could read their own essays or stories. Podcasts can also be used to record guest speakers and make their presentations available online.
