Content curation as a way for students to develop critical thinking

Content curation as a way for students to develop critical thinking | General learning capabilities | Scoop.it

I wanted students to be able to funnel their interests into a more authentic academic experience so that they could learn about what they want to learn about and become empowered as researchers, both casually and formally.


Via Robin Good, Guillaume Decugis
Tina Jameson's insight:

Love the idea of telling students they are going to do 'argument curation' rather than a 'research project', as they explore information on an issue of interest.

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | General learning capabilities | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

Tina Jameson's insight:

While the original Scoop graphic and comments relate to 'curation skills' - I felt it was relevant to share with students as it offers a model incorporating 'ethical' consideration through the research process.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, June 19, 2014 11:42 AM

This is an interesting infograhic. Does constructivism really mean learners are in control of their learning? This almost suggests learning can be planned in ways that are certain which does not take into consideration environmental interacting and human relating. John Dewey suggested learning is about interacting with the environment in unexpected ways that reconstruct learner and the environment. It is about reconstructing rather than simply reorganizing.
