A Framework for Using Content Curation in a Learning Organization

A Framework for Using Content Curation in a Learning Organization | The Gifted Challenge | Scoop.it

 

4 Ways to use Curation in Learning

I’m getting very excited about the possibilities of using more digital curation in learning.  The trouble with curation is that I’m seeing it everywhere. As such I wanted to come up with a short framework that I could use to talk about how I see curation in learning being used, both at the organisation level and for individuals.  So, go easy on me; here’s what I’m proposing…

 

We can think of digital curation as being useful to us in four broad roles that I’m calling Inspiration, Aggregation, Integration and Application. Inspiration is how I term curation that is done by other people on your behalf, outside of a formal learning environment.  Aggregation is the same thing, but done within a formal learning context.  Integration is a more personal curation process; how individuals blend new learning experiences with existing thoughts.  And finally Application is how individuals apply new insights in the real world; how we individually manage knowledge on a day-to-day basis.  I capture this flow in a simple matrix that demonstrates how the four types of curation can flow into each other in a continuous learning cycle:

Nothing hidden about these "tips & tricks" - just standard every day library functions. This is not new, most these functions have been used since Win95, the days before we see the net as we do now. Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!

Without forgetting the relational nature of learning and teaching. Is it accountability or responsibility? Or is it a combining both? Judith Butler speaks about giving an account of one's self which is the way we respond and are responsible for learning.

First 'Cyber Murder' an Inevitability, Warn Experts | Internet of Things

First 'Cyber Murder' an Inevitability, Warn Experts | Internet of Things | The Gifted Challenge | Scoop.it
Flaws in online security and the increased use of web-connected health devices means that the first "cyber murder" is only a matter of time, according to a report by Interpol.

The report warns that police forensics teams are currently ill-equipped to deal with the threat, and will have to "adapt and grow" as the so-called Internet of Things sees devices including heart monitoring devices, homes and cars, functioning through online systems through internet connections.

"The Internet of Things represents a whole new attack vector that we believe criminals will already be looking for ways to exploit," according to the Europol threat assessment.

The threat assessment published last week cites a report by US security firm IID, which predicts that the first murder using a hacked internet-connected device will take place by the end of the year.

A series of high-profile cases have highlighted the vulnerability of web-connected devices to sabotage by hackers.

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher | The Gifted Challenge | Scoop.it

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.


They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.
