Social Media as a teaching tool: How to Tweet your students some knowledge - teachingwithipad.org

Social Media as a teaching tool: How to Tweet your students some knowledge - teachingwithipad.org | Education Adds | Scoop.it

"As teachers, the pull of social media on your students attention will already be well known to you. The online world exerts a magnetic lure on the attention of young people today, offering community and information sharing, entertainment and gossip in ways that often pull students away from the blackboard. Understanding this dynamic, some educators are now bringing social media into the classroom in surprising ways. By working with something your students already enjoy and don’t, perhaps, associate with learning, there are opportunities for creative teaching, as well as making genuine connection with your students."

Content Curation: How To Cite, Credit and Attribute Other People's Content on the Web

Content Curation: How To Cite, Credit and Attribute Other People's Content on the Web | Education Adds | Scoop.it

We all agree with Robin Good that this is a "good guide providing the basic principles that should be followed when using, reposting, citing or quoting other people's content (both text and images)".
Crediting images is something that has been forgotten but it deserves the same attention as written documents.
The article is very complete, covering the topics:
How To Cite Content in Blog Posts;
How To Cite Content in Social Media;
How to Give Credit to Guest Bloggers and Ghost Writers;
How to Cite Images and Visual Content.

 

Those are premisses that also apply when curating content for whatever purposes.

Content Curation: Nine Things To Keep in Mind

Terri Rice's curator insight, September 26, 2014 12:48 PM

Marc has given us a great checklist to refer to as we curate. It truly is too easy to become lost in all of the available information. Staying on target is the 1st priority, but saying something worthwhile is 2nd. It's too easy to ramble or puppet authors. I find myself doing this too often. Thank you, Marc for this terrific reminder about quality over quantity.

Teaching Metacognition: How Students Think Is Key To High Achievement

Teaching Metacognition: How Students Think Is Key To High Achievement | Education Adds | Scoop.it

"A few years ago, I came across some interesting research by cognitive psychologist Ronald T. Kellogg. He claimed that the mark of an expert writer is not years of practice or a hefty vocabulary, but rather an awareness of one’s audience. This made sense to me, and I wondered if it were true in other disciplines as well."
