A useful source for content curation.

Ali Anani's curator insight, March 4, 2014 12:37 AM

Curate and scoop it- this one shows you how to curate  effectively

Christoph Meier's curator insight, March 11, 2014 9:38 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

Here's a valuable resource on content curation, "distilled" by the students of the DCurate MOOC lead Martin Couzins and Sam Burrough which organizes over 60 different articles, guides and tools on the topic.

 

This resources collection is presented in the form of a Pearltrees interactive map, organized into eight sections:

 

1. Why Do We Need Curators

 

2. What Is Digital Curation

 

3. Aggregation vs. Curation

 

4. It's All About Audience

 

5. How Do We Find Valuable Content

 

6. How Do You Decide What To Curate

 

7. Curation Tools

 

8. Contributions from participants

 

If you are new to content curation this is a good resource to bookmark and keep as a reference.

Transitioning to Open Educational Resources

Transitioning to Open Educational Resources | iEduc | Scoop.it
Over the past two years, I've been working with my district to transition from the popular textbook towards Open Educational Resources, or OER. One of the leading benefits of OER options is that they are free and open to educators. That in itself is a reason to inquire. The information has been vetted for credibility and some of it is derived from some of the world's top colleges and universities.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, March 9, 2013 7:46 AM

Making the transition to OERs can be quite daunting as it's not just a matter of accessing open content but repurposing it and digitizing your own to suit your students' needs. I find that using OERs in combination with cloud computing, mobile assisted seamless learning and field trips into virtual worlds, works well with my language students. However, what works within my teaching context may not be appropriate for yours. In my opinion, it's not just about introducing new technologies and pedagogies because they are trending, but doing a thorough analysis of what is needed within a specfic context before transforming your teaching practices, as these transformations  will influence your students' learning environment and learning outcomes.

Anne Whaits's curator insight, March 9, 2013 4:01 PM

Four great OER sources provided here for teachers to explore.

Heather MacCorkle Edick's curator insight, April 2, 2013 4:59 AM

It's good to know that the materials have been vetted.  Another good source for material is MERLOT.

15 Reasons Why Daydreamers are Better Learners

15 Reasons Why Daydreamers are Better Learners | iEduc | Scoop.it

"The student’s eyes drift to the classroom window and the teacher’s voice fades from consciousness.

The daydream begins. It’s a familiar scene, one we have likely both experienced as students and struggled against in our students as teachers. But daydreaming is not what it might seem. Recent research in both psychology and neuroscience makes clear that daydreaming is an essential part of mental processing, reasoning and, yes, even learning."


Via Beth Dichter
NikolaosKourakos's insight:

If you have wondered if daydreaming makes students better learners then this article will provide 15 reasons as well as many resources. A few of the reasons listed are (all are quotes):

* Daydreaming is the mind's natural state

* Daydreaming helps with critical thinking and problem solving

* Daydreaming...greatly increases the mind’s ability to smoothly shift in the face of unanticipated events and situations.

An additional 12 items are listed.

Και οι 15 λόγοι συνοψίζονται στο απόσπασμα από την Αναφορά στον Γκρέκο του Νίκου Καζαντζάκη:

 

Μια μέρα, ήταν άνοιξη, χαρά Θεού, τα παράθυρα ήταν ανοιχτά κι έμπαινε η μυρωδιά από μια ανθισμένη μανταρινιά στο αντικρινό σπίτι∙ το μυαλό μας είχε γίνει κι αυτό ανθισμένη μανταρινιά και δεν μπορούσαμε πια ν' ακούμε για οξείες και περισπωμένες. Κι ίσια ίσια ένα πουλί είχε καθίσει στο πλατάνι της αυλής του σκολειού και κελαηδούσε. Τότε πια ένας μαθητής, χλωμός, κοκκινομάλης, που 'χε έρθει εφέτο από το χωριό, Νικολιό τον έλεγαν, δεν βάσταξε, σήκωσε το δάχτυλο:

- Σώπα, δάσκαλε, φώναξε∙ σώπα, δάσκαλε, ν' ακούσουμε το πουλί!..."

Water: Global facts + statistics [infographic] | iEduc | Scoop.it

Ever notice how we ask for “just water” at a restaurant? Like the source of all life is somehow inferior to soda or a glass of wine (both of which are mostly water)? A new infographic gives you just about every fact you need to know about water… including the ways we’re wasting it.

Take a look, and stop by the original article to share any other facts about water you wished more people knew.
