Victoria Marín's curator insight, December 9, 2013 5:30 AM

I would like to highlight the following from this article:

 

Let’s take the focus off the tool; Instead, let’s focus on:

the pedagogy behind the tool and use it because it addresses our students’ cognitive needs, not because it is available or exciting.

developing critical thinkers with the ability to find, reflect on, curate and synthesise information.

developing lifelong learners who will be able to create and use their Personal Learning Networks to self-educate and grow.

educating digital citizens, that is, responsible members of an increasingly global and interconnected world who know their rights and responsibilities; people who can make informed decisions about the content they create or share and its impact on themselves and on the other members of a digital community.

Pamela Perry King's curator insight, December 9, 2013 10:39 AM

Are You Teaching Content Or Teaching Thought? -

Are You Teaching Content Or Teaching Thought? - | Education and Learning Technologies | Scoop.it

Thinking is troublesome.

For one, it is an intimate act splicing time and space. It is done right here, but it spans moments in the pasts and reaches out uncertainly towards moments in the future. Put another way, you think in a singular, precise space about plural, imprecise times.

It also resists uniformity (and education loves uniformity). Thought hinges on schema (familiar forms and patterns we then impose unfamiliar data to make sense of it), and emotion (in part, our internal response to the former). It is as diverse as character, experience, and affection. It’s like defining art, establishing criteria for beauty, or causing love

And whether it knows it or not, education has a thinking problem.

We continue to teach information, through memorization, and with the amount of information (Content) doubling every 18 months, it becomes impossible to achieve.

We need to teach them how to think, how to obtain information, where it is located, how to analyze it, and how to apply it.

Top 11 Trusted (And Free) Search Engines For Scientific and Academic Research | Education and Learning Technologies | Scoop.it
Whether Conducting Academic Research or Purely Scientific Research, These Sites can be an Invaluable Aid.

Researching is the most crucial step of writing a scientific paper. It is always a well-researched scientific paper that inspires the assessor. At the same time, it must have genuine and authentic information for credibility. With the development in Internet industry, i.e., web resources, researching for scientific materials has now become a matter of a few clicks. Now students can get information on any topic pertaining to science through academic search engines. They provide a centralized platform and allow the students to acquire literature on any topic within seconds.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, December 7, 2013 8:03 AM

When working with students to develp information fluency it is very useful to get them to explore alternatives to the two major search engines taht most people rely on.  This broadening of search strategy also helps limit the effect of "filter bubbles" 

 

If you're not sure what a filter bubble might be then you will be shocked when you read and watch this: http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2011/05/12/the-filter-bubble/

One of, if not THE, best blog posts I've read this year!  Favorite lines:

"Depressed and no longer needed, the Student Desk ended its life by throwing itself into a giant wood-chipper behind the school.  The Desk is survived by aged relatives like the pencil, the paper notebook, and as of this writing, the paper textbook (which is currently on life-support in a Santa Monica area hospital).  In lieu of flowers the Desk asks that you plant a tree in its honor for the wood that was used to make the desk and offer a donation to the Chiropractors Helping Ailing Inflamed Rears Society (C.H.A.I.R.S.)..."
