Steps to Creating the Conditions for Deep, Rigorous, Applied Learning | Infographic

Steps to Creating the Conditions for Deep, Rigorous, Applied Learning | Infographic | Communication design | Scoop.it

Many school administrators, teachers and parents want the education provided to children to be high quality, rigorous and connected to the world outside the classroom. Teachers are trying to provide these elements in various ways, but a group of schools calling themselves the “Deeper Learning Network” have codified some of what they believe are essential qualities of deep learning (check out how students lead parent teacher conferences in this model).

Some of these qualities include learning designated content, critical thinking, communication skills, collaborating effectively and connecting learning to real-world experiences.

Content Curation Takes Time

Content Curation Takes Time | Communication design | Scoop.it

Notwithstanding the viral content-marketing tam-tam keeps selling the idea of content curation as a miracle-shortcut to work less, produce more content and get all of the benefits that an online publisher would want to have, reality has quite a different shade.

To gain reader's attention trust and interest, it is evidently not enough to pull together a few interesting titles while adding a few lines of introductory text.


Unless your readers are not very interested themselves into the topic you cover, why would they take recomendations from someone who has not even had the time to fully go through his suggested resources?

Superficially picking apparently interesting content from titles or even automatically selecting content for others to read is like recommending movies or music records based on how much you like their trailers or their cover layouts.


Can that be useful beyond attracting some initial extra visibility?


How can one become a trusted information source if one does not thoroughly look and understand at what he is about to recommend?

This is why selling or even thinking the idea of using content curation as a time and money-saver is really non-sense.

Again, for some, this type of light content curation may work in attracting some extra visibility in the short-term, but it will be deleterious in the long one, as serious readers discover gradually that content being suggested has not even been read, let alone being summarized, highlighted or contextualized.

Content curation takes serious time.


A lot more than the one needed to create normal original content.

To curate content you need to:

  1. Find good content, resources and references. Even if you have good tools, the value is in searching where everyone else is not looking. That takes time.

  2. Read, verify and vet each potential resource, by taking the time needed to do this thoroughly.

  3. Make sense of what that resource communicates or represents / offers and be able to synthesize it for non-experts who will read about it.

  4. Synthesize and highlight the value of the chosen resource within the context of your interest area.

  5. Enrich the resource with relevant references, and related links for those that will want to find out more about it.

  6. Credit and attribute sources and contributors.

  7.  Preserve, classify and archive what you want to curate.

  8. Share, distribute, promote the curated work you have produced. Creating it is not enough.


(While it is certainly possible to do a good curation job without doing exactly all of the tasks I have outlined above, I believe that it is ideal to try to do as many as these as possible, as each adds more value to the end result you will create.)


These are many more steps and activities than the ones required to create an original piece of content.

Curation is all about quality, insight and attention to details.

It is not about quantity, speed, saving time, producing more with less.

GIANFRANCO MARINI's curator insight, February 13, 12:34 PM

Un intervento di Robin Good comparso su Scoop.it l'11/2/15 e che smonta alcuni "miti" e "false rappresentazioni" della Content Curation che circolano spesso in rete.

 

Questi in sintesi i miti:

# La Content Curation non è un modo per lavorare meno, produrre più contenuti e acquisire facilmente visibilità

# non si tratta nemmeno di aggiungere qualche riga a un contenuto o produrre una serie di link

 

Robin Good elenca poi in 8 punti in che cosa consiste l'autentico "lavoro del curatore". Il testo è in inglese ma facilmente comprensibile.

 

Questo breve intervento è di notevole interesse per:

# rettificare il paradigma teorico che sta coagulandosi attorno alla Content Curation

# calibrare la propria attività di curatori sul "valore aggiunto" che occorre produrre nella cura dei contenuti

# Comprendere la reale portata della Curation che può essere una delle strategie vincenti se non la si intende e pratica unicamente come attività di produrre "raccolte di link" ma

# attività di "produzione di senso" nel caos entropico del Web

# Proprio coltivare questo aspetto della Curation né evidenzia la valenza didattica in quanto attività di "interpretazione", "Ermeneutica del Web"

Kate Reid's curator insight, February 18, 5:19 PM

Robin Good  offers sage advice for school librarians as we content curate.

Qualitative Formative Assessment Toolkit - Guest Post from Reshan Richards - EdTechTeacher

Qualitative Formative Assessment Toolkit - Guest Post from Reshan Richards - EdTechTeacher | Communication design | Scoop.it

Dr. Reshan Richards: "Each of these approaches allows teachers and learner to capture and create moments of learning, excerpts of understanding, and reflections of experience. Let’s pretend to be one of my 5th-grade math students from last year participating in an activity about tessellating patterns. The activity was to figure out what individual shapes, when arranged in a flat pattern with touching sides, formed a closed tesselating patter (a regular tessellation). This activity involved using physical manipulative objects (pattern blocks), a piece of paper to document findings (journal workbook page), and NCTM Illumination’s Tessellation Creator website as resources for engaging in the experience of exploring regular tessellation. Here’s how the QFAT could be applied to this activity with an iPad."
