What Is Curation and Why It's So Relevant? [Video]

Robin Good: A great video animation introducing some of the key ideas, dreams and concepts behind content curation.

 

From the video: "One of the most beautiful things about the Internet is this sort of radical discovery, where you start in a place that you are familiar with, that you trust, and then you drill down and down and chase the white rabbit and then you end up in some wonderland you didn't know existed." 

 

The clip includes thoughts from some unique curators, picked and selected by Percolate, the company sponsoring this video. 

 

Inspiring. Insightful. 8/10

Gamification

Gamification | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

Today’s 21st century students are not like their parents’ generation. Never before have we, as a civilization, experienced such a large generation gap — and the reason behind it is video games. Within the span of only one generation the world’s dominant form of entertainment has shifted from passive (TV, Novels, Comic Books, Theater, etc) to interactive. This represents a fundamental shift in individual interactions with the community, and other segments of society are struggling to keep up.

Carlos Lizarraga Celaya's curator insight, June 26, 2013 1:30 PM

This page gathers all of the Bloomin' Apps projects in one place!


Each of the images has clickable hotspots and includes suggestions for
iPad, Google, Android, and Web 2.0 applications
to support each of the levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.

The use of the triangle shape for Bloomin' apps projects was not used
 to help clear up the misunderstanding that the levels are hierarchical and
the top levels only make up a tiny portion of the cognitive processes.

iPads: What are we learning?

Thus, while school jurisdictions have traditionally planned and supported technology within an enterprise environment, iPads present as a square peg. iPads not only run in contrast to our more systemic ways of planning for technology integration but they also offer a new way of interacting with content. As one participant noted, iPads are
not laptops or desktops and thus compel us to adopt other ways of thinking.

Journalist's Resource: Research for Reporting, from Harvard Shorenstein Center

Journalist's Resource: Research for Reporting, from Harvard Shorenstein Center | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article by Harvard Gazette:

 

"We live in a world of too much information and not enough knowledge. No one feels the strain of that digital-age truism more than journalists, who are asked to ferret out and process information with ever-increasing speed — and often at the expense of providing solid context for the news of the day.


Journalist’s Resource, a new online tool developed at Harvard’s Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy, aims to put that background knowledge at the fingertips of reporters, bloggers, or even concerned citizens by making the work of academics less opaque and easier to find.


But the website, which curates scholarship on government, economics, society, and the environment, is more than just a reliable shortcut for deadline-driven journalists.


“There is a real need for deepening journalism with verified, high-quality knowledge that informs the kind of serious journalism that makes our democracy work,” said Alex S. Jones, director of the Shorenstein Center and a lecturer in public policy at HKS.

 

“It becomes very difficult for journalists, journalism professors, and students to go through and find the key items that would help them. We’re trying to be a useful filter and curator.”...."
