Curation: I use scoop.it, and I think it is important to teach students how to become curators. More ideas here!

What is content Curation? Great explanation and very interesting interview with Robin Good on curation.

John Gougoulis's curator insight, August 19, 6:34 AM

An absolutely significant skill in any research or investigation, for educators and learners in the digital age - the curation of content- with a clear focus or question in mind, the capacity to target a search field, sift through, reflect on and make decisions about the most suitable resource or evidence to use. What a great learning experience.

Let students be part of the deciding how things will work and what is expected. Ownership and input are crucial to buy-in.

Personalized PBL: Student-Designed Learning

Personalized PBL: Student-Designed Learning | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
Project-based learning may be the best vehicle for personalized learning as teachers move beyond "course-based" approaches and open the way for student-designed curriculum.

 

Not every teacher may be ready to jump into this type of personalization. To make it work, they'll be required to adopt a different teaching role. They'll need strong management skills and a commitment to disruptive innovation. In addition, the current constructs of the education system may hold us back. What if we could make this dream of personalized PBL a reality?


===> I say that we work toward it, creating a push on the system that demands change in the education of our students. <===




Via Amy Burns, Dean J. Fusto, Gust MEES
Kelly Christopherson's insight:

PBL is one way to approach the way to organize the learning for students within the classroom. The use of different tools allows for the development of student-driven designs for learning and provides teachers with the opportunity to allow students more direction in their own learning.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, August 21, 9:13 PM

An art teacher and I (drama teacher) started to use a negotiated approach with students about 15 years ago.  By working with students to be aware of curriculum expectations and discussing "what would this look like" we assisted students with developingntheir own learnign pathways and expressions of their learning - in keeping with the legislated requirements of curriculum.  I've also noted over the years that elements of the International Baccalaureate - particularly the project work from MYP - reflects a similar approach.

Without reference to research literature, I'd speculate that this speaks to engagement, authenticity and relevance... and needn't be confined to K-12 contexts.... well-documented project work could be conducted outside the confines of formal classes and evidenced against formal assessment criteria.

Durriyyah Kemp's curator insight, August 22, 11:10 AM

Project-Based Learning is a great vehicle for allowing student to gain social and emotional learning (SEL) skills.  The five core competency skills for SEL (self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision-making, and self-management) can be easily integrated into any project-based learning opportunity.
