Content Curation as a Problem-Solving, Re-Assembling and Stewardship Process

Content Curation as a Problem-Solving, Re-Assembling and Stewardship Process | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Thinking of teaching as curating is one possible way of extending and transforming what we think about education. It takes us beyond the over-simplified reforms cast down from on high and reflects new ways of thinking about transforming education

Terry Elliott's curator insight, August 16, 2014 7:26 AM

The image above amounts to a template for curating a digital space:

 

1. Find something timeless to curate.

2. Fit it into a pattern that makes sense.

3. Find a larger context for why this matters.

4. Share widely.

 

I think this fits into Harold Jarche’s simpler seek-sense-share framework.

 

Why does this matter?  If curation is all that Tufte and Bhatt say it is, then why aren’t scaffolds like these being used more often for training and in learning systems?  I am using the curation tool Scoop.it to do curation with my freshman comp students.  They use Scoop.it as their introductory platform  for beginning to acquire the skills  Tufte enumerates above that are part of the academic and business spaces they will eventually live in.  I am hoping they will demonstrate why it curation matters as they seek-sense-share their way to long and short form ‘texts’ that they will be writing all semester. That will include essays, tweets, G+ community posts, blog posts, research papers, emails, plusses, favs, instagrams, zeegas, slideshares, pictures, and a massive mobile presence from their own digital spaces.  Wish me luck.

Ignacio Conejo Moreno's curator insight, February 14, 2015 7:35 AM

"A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it."


Creo que esta definición zanja la discusión sobre si un "Content Curator" es una adaptación moderna al "Documentalista" de los medios tradicionales.


De muy recomendada lectura para los que nos dedicamos a la Curación de Contenidos.

Maria Popova, editor of Brain Pickings, says we desperately need skilled knowledge curators to offset the risk of information overload.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

This is an interesting article in large part, because it references thinking that is over 50 years old. The problem is not a new one. What is new is the new scale of information and the lack of voice saying we have to find a a way to come to terms with it.

Self-Directed Learning Well Explained and 27 Actions

Self-Directed Learning Well Explained and 27 Actions | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

TeachThought.com has a series of posts about self-directed learning by Terry Heick and the staff, well worth a read! “

 

“Learning is most effective when it’s personalised; it means something to the learner. That happens when people feel they are participants and investors in their own learning, shaping what and how they learn, and able to articulate its value to them.” — Leadbeater, Charles

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

It is interesting how few classroom teachers and administrators are aware of what self-directed learning is. SDL is an imperative for our children.

Definitely well worth a read

Avery's curator insight, March 25, 2013 11:56 PM

My Thoughts:

You can't teach someone how to learn. You can give them helpful tips and advice, but a single structure for education is not going to work for everyone. It's so much harder for people to learn their true potential, to reach their goals, when they're only shown a single path to them. You show them the path through the forest, but what if there's a rock face nearby that also leads up to where they want to go, and what if they happen to be a fantastic rock climber? It just makes more sense to show someone a map if you can, instead of directing them towards only one path.
