Curate to educate.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 7, 2015 6:12 AM

A couple of great finds from master Curator Robin Good. As he notes

 

"This is an interesting trend as in the past most tools to deliver educational content relied on the author creating and posting only his own materials. The fact that you can now include valuable content published by others opens up the gates both for the curation of lots of existing content into useful learning courses as well as for the issues of whether and how to compensate curated content from others"

Filomena Gomes's curator insight, April 18, 2015 9:57 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

New interesting tools make it possible to create online courses and full online learning programs, by drastically simplifying the design process while providing simple tools to curate and bring together valuable existing content already published online.

 

The first I'd like to bring to your attention is Classmill, which makes it very easy to create online courses by providing a very simple and intuitive interface and allowing the author to add with ease his own texts, as well as images, links and video clips coming from elsewhere on the web. Anyone can publish an online course and make it visible to everyone. Only those who register and join in can see the full contents and can participate in the integrated discussion area for the course.

 

The second one is Learnyst, which goes one step beyond Classmill by facilitating the creation of a full online school with multiple courses and the ability to charge for selected ones. 

 

Both tools are extremely easy to use, and allow the assembly of existing materials, whether owned or produced by others. 

 

This is an interesting trend as in the past most tools to deliver educational content relied on the author creating and posting only his own materials. The fact that you now can easily include valuable content published by others opens up the gates both for the curation of lots of existing content into useful learning courses as well as for the issue of whether and how to compensate curated content from others. 

 

This economic issue though, does not preclude tons of free high-quality content to be re-used and showcased in many new free learning courses and it provides those who want to learn with even more non-commercial alternatives to master their favorite topics. 

 

Takeaway: You are going to see more of these tools and more subject-matter experts create valuable learning resources by bringing together key relevant content produced by others while adding tangible value, perspective and context.

If you have a strong passion or expertise it's time to start thinking about building your own online school. 

 

 

Check out these two tools:

- Learnyst

- Classmill

 

Other curation tools for learning moving in the same direction:

- Gibbon

- Learnist

- Educrate

12 potential education technology implementation pitfalls and ways to avoid them

12 potential education technology implementation pitfalls and ways to avoid them | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it
After several decades of managing technology projects, I have enjoyed a good number of successes, but have also had the good fortune of being involved in some failures. Indeed, failure is an opportunity – a chance to learn how one might avoid repeating oversights or ill-formed assumptions that contributed to failure.

Experience, coupled with formal learning about the project management process, have taught me a number of consistent potential pitfalls that often accompany technology implementation projects. Following are twelve possible problem points for most education technology rollout efforts, and some thoughts on how to avoid falling into these traps (or at least how to be better prepared for them). These are really just fundamental concepts from the discipline of project management, adapted to instructional technology projects and the educational environment.

Platform Companies Are Becoming More Powerful — but What Exactly Do They Want? :: NY Times

Platform Companies Are Becoming More Powerful — but What Exactly Do They Want? :: NY Times | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it
Platforms are, in a sense, capitalism distilled to its essence. They are proudly experimental and maximally consequential, prone to creating externalities and especially disinclined to address or even acknowledge what happens beyond their rising walls. And accordingly, platforms are the underlying trend that ties together popular narratives about technology and the economy in general. Platforms provide the substructure for the “gig economy” and the “sharing economy”; they’re the economic engine of social media; they’re the architecture of the “attention economy” and the inspiration for claims about the “end of ownership.”

But the tensions that platforms like Uber create with their customers, their workers and the world that surrounds them will soon become harder to ignore as these companies foment economic and social change, the consequences of which will increasingly be thrust into spectacular display.

How to create a Learning Culture and help your organization grow

How to create a Learning Culture and help your organization grow | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it
You can’t touch it, or smell it, or taste it. But you know it’s there.

It’s like a feeling, an energy, something that moves you to act without predetermination or intention.

And no, it’s not your favorite Beatles song, making you tap your foot to the rhythm like a puppet on a string. We’re talking about something far more powerful, and slightly more constructive.

We’re talking, of course, about organizational culture.

Organizational What?

Initially sidelined as a ‘wishy-washy HR concept’, organizational culture has earned its recognition as one of the most influential assets an organization can possess today.

A unique, immeasurable combination of the shared intellect, informal habits, attitudes and knowledge that shape how you do business. Like an invisible perfume scenting every team, process, and task.

And because it’s intangible, organizational culture is one of the few assets that are inimitable. Unlike technologies, ideas, and skills, which are frequently copied by the competition, this asset remains unique to the business in which it lives. A key competitive advantage.

Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Learning outside your Comfort Zone

Learning outside your Comfort Zone | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it
When we learn something outside the comfort zone, we attempt to acquire knowledge or skills in an area where we’re lacking. Part of the discomfort derives from learning something we anticipate will be difficult. We have no idea how to do it, or we think it requires abilities we don’t have or have in meager amounts. Moreover, poor performance or outright failure lurk as likely possibilities. In other words, it’s going to be hard and require concentration, and what we’re struggling to do, others can accomplish beautifully, seemingly without effort. Their skills, and our obvious lack of them, raise questions about our merits as a learner and maybe even our worth as a person.
