Mooi gedaan. The New York Times heeft zijn eigen knipseldienst die het eenvoudig maakt foto's quotes en andere inhoud te bundelen. Een persoonlijke knipselkrant, een eigen plakboek, een lokale Pinterest. Zie bijvoorbeeld een verzameling van recensies van restaurants.

Convinced of the need to be a conent curator in my school - looking for the best way to start this, how to implement a manageable plan and ways to increase my content curation competency.

 

Lucy Wyatt's curator insight, October 7, 2013 12:44 PM

With students accessing different kinds of material and the same material in different ways, the OPAC and vertical file may not be the best way to lead your students to the best content.  This article shows differing ways of attacking the problem.

5 Ways to Effectively Integrate an iPad in the Classroom

5 Ways to Effectively Integrate an iPad in the Classroom | Educational Resources for teachers and librarians | Scoop.it

"Every teacher can successfully integrate an iPad in the classroom by remembering it is not the central focus of the classroom. Effective instruction is the central focus. Instead of thinking about what to do with the iPad, teachers must decide if there a tool that will help them complete a lesson and meet their objective. Rather than creating new lessons just for the iPad, look at current lessons and see if there are activities that the iPad can help with. Technology should make life easier."

David Bramley's curator insight, December 17, 2012 6:06 PM

Information is ubiquitous, finding individuals with similar interests is the basis of creating a personal learning network.  Content curation is one way of adding value to your network using Harold Jarche's Seek, Sense, Share model.  It would be good to see the current Education framework  embrace content curation and this post is a good place to start

The Power of Deep Connection & Why It's So Important Today

I love the word serendipity and today I happened to see a tweet chat #pochat and I began following the stream. I met a man who lives and breathes what I hold dear to my heart - meaningful connections that lead to powerful communities.


 After interacting with Bobby and listening to this talk, I could have said this myself.


"Bobby Umar is a human teddy bear and a personal diary. People always want to hug him and share deep, personal thoughts with him, even after a first meeting"


This inspiring talk is all about the 5 c's of connection - they are


**Caring


**Communication


**Connection


**Community


**Change


Today we're living with massive change in every area of our lives. It's an exciting time but it is also a time of confusion and anxiety. No person can afford to be a lone wolf, we all need each other.


I loved this talk, what he is saying is what gets me out of bed in the morning. It is my purpose and it was so wonderful to hear him speak and articulate what I am trying to do as well. There are so many wonderful people out there who have the same vision, who are different from me and you, we all have something to learn from each other.


"What I can't do alone, we can do together"


Selected by Jan Gordon covering "Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions"

Teachers Simple Guide to Teaching with Videos | Educational Resources for teachers and librarians | Scoop.it

There is a growing fissure between what education used to be in the 20th century and what it turns out to be in the 21st century. While what students learn has remained broadly the same but the ' how ' they learn it is changing rapidly as technology advances. There emerged a transformative kind of technology which not only reshape our perceptions about instruction and teaching but also created a new learning mode easily accessible to students .
