narative structures and codes - some great dot point information.

Aurion Learning's curator insight, August 2, 2013 4:38 AM

Claude Levi-Strauss was a social anthropologist who "found that stories that are told unconciously mirror the values and myths of a culture."

 

Storytelling is an effective way of communicating values and information.

How to teach your kids about online privacy

How to teach your kids about online privacy | iEduc | Scoop.it
“ Kids these days grow up on the Internet. From a young age many are using devices that give them the web at their fingertips – and while the Internet and social media can be a very beneficial and educational tool for kids, it also leaves them susceptible to many risks. Teaching kids about online privacy and safety has become a new priority for parents – but many may find it challenging, especially when kids seem to know more about the Internet than their guardians. So, how do you start the conversation about online privacy in your home?”

Mel Riddile's curator insight, Today, 12:58 PM
  1. Support new ideas. When employees come to you with an idea or a solution to a problem they believe is for the betterment of the company, it’s a sign that they care. Supporting new ideas and giving an individual the chance to ‘run with it’ is motivating, whether or not it works out in the end.
  2. Empower each individual. Every single individual contributes to the bottom line. Empowering them to excel in their role, no matter how large or small, creates a sense of ownership that will lead to meeting and exceeding expectations.
  3. Don’t let them become bored.

Teaching Students the Skills of Expert Readers | Patricia Hillard Blog | Edutopia.org

Teaching Students the Skills of Expert Readers | Patricia Hillard Blog | Edutopia.org | iEduc | Scoop.it

Research shows that skilled or expert readers possess seven strategies to construct meaning before, during, and after reading a text. When skilled students read, it is an active process. Their minds are constantly processing information extracted from the text, e.g., questioning the author, summarizing passages, or interpreting images.

Contrarily, struggling readers often unthinkingly read the words on the page. For them, reading is an inactive activity. Constructing meaning from the text does not naturally occur in the mind of a struggling reader.Fortunately, the cognitive skills of expert readers can be taught. The most effective way for students to learn these skills is through explicit and direct instruction.

It is important that teachers model these strategies to the class before allowing students to independently use one of them. Modeling a strategy provides students with a clear understanding of why they were given the task and how to complete it properly.

The role of content curation in proving expertise - and why you need a curation hub

The role of content curation in proving expertise - and why you need a curation hub | iEduc | Scoop.it

What really separates curation from filtration is context — specifically a curator providing the reader the necessary context within which the filtered content should be consumed in order for it to make sense and have value to the reader.


Via Guillaume Decugis

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, March 9, 6:18 PM

In the age of information overload, content has little value without context. It became a commodity which we're seeing a huge amount of flowing on our news feeds. This is a problem but also a great opportunity to show expertise: to explain, connect the dots, add value by positioning content in the context of a relationship with au audience. 


As this post's author Tom Martin highlights in this post, the logical conclusion is that this presents a challenge:


How can you add context and value in 140 characters on Twitter? How can your 200-word explanations compete with LOL cats on Facebook? 


By using a content curation hub.


What do we mean by that? 


Instead of sharing links and limiting your context to whatever fits in your tweet or focusing on grabbing attentions on Facebook, you can publish your curated content as a post on your blog (or if you don't have one, a Scoop.it topic page) which gives you plenty of opportunity to elaborate. 


There are several benefits with doing that:


1. By sending your social media audience to a page where they can show your curated content with added context and value, you can build that trust with your readers and show your expertise. And therefore what Tom Martin calls the content curation challenge. 


2. Readers can easily see related content which will engage them more and reinforces your importance to them. 


3. Your curated content can now be rediscovered in the future, in particular through search engines. 


4. You can add conversion hooks and call to actions to get in touch with your company, buy your products, etc...


So if you're just tweeting links, you're missing out.
