Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills

Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills | Educational Technology and Sustainability | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are interested in exploring content curation as a possible venue for innovating teaching and learning approaches, you will find lots of valuable information in this new article by @NancyW entitled Developing Future Workskills Through Content Curation.

 

In it she points to a study conducted last year, the Apollo Research Institute Future Workskills 2020, that identifies critical workskills needed for future jobs and how fitting "content curation" may be in cultivating and refining many of those.

 

She writes: "A closer look suggests that critical workforce skills identified in this \ study can be easily aligned with the skills practiced with content curation.

 

The skills a student employs to successfully curate information include curiosity, media literacy, ability to make connections across disciplines, information literacy, the ability to evaluate and understand perspective, synthesize and evaluate information, and a good dose of self-direction."

 

"Future Workskills 2020 suggests a monumental shift and change needs to begin now in our education system.

 

These skills can be developed through the process of content curation.

 

Content curation has the added benefit of helping students find their passions for and take ownership of their learning..."

 

 

Right on target. Recommended. 8/10
