Seth Dixon: This promotional video speaks to me because regardless of platform, I think that educational technologies should be used to foster the exact same type of learning environment that is described in this video. The Social Media Classroom isn't about "wowing" student with cool technologies. That flashiness is the educational equivalent of a twinkie. Fluffy, empty calorie that don't nourish. The ideological essence of content curation IS what good educators have always sought to do: only now there are new platforms for this process
Robin Good: Curatr, an elearning platform built upon the idea of discovery through the curation and sense-making of existing information. Curatr is about the construction of the scaffolding that allows people to learn and to find the resources that should help them best learn what they are interested into.
