The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School?

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School? | information literacy | Scoop.it

The only rational answer to the conundrum of curiosity is to disengage our educational system from standardized testing and common curricula. Curiosity does not hold up well under intense expectation. Give agency to teachers, with the explicit message to slow down and provide students time to wonder and be curious.

Children, and for that matter teachers, bring curiousity with them. Teachers can help create contexts where that curiousity remains vibrant.

This article from the Chronicle of Higher Education outlines the process used with a university class for the students to choose a problem and a Khan Academy style video illustrating the working for solving the problem successfully. Great that it is a student-centred approach. Not so sure that it would work for other non-mathematical disciplines...

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Creating illustrations and infographics for ELT tasks | information literacy | Scoop.it

Draw.io is one of my favourite tools and the one I use most for creating graphics and infographics. As someone who doesn’t draw very well and has only limited design abilities it has really helped me out a number of times and enabled me to produce professional looking illustrations, product mockups and teaching materials.

34 experts offer their tips for how to speak English fluently | information literacy | Scoop.it

The Internet is teeming with suggestions, instructions, and procedures for how to speak fluent English. It’s overwhelming for learners and teachers to try to make sense of it all.
It’s especially difficult to know if the source of information is a person you can trust, someone with extensive knowledge and experience in English language teaching.
To cut through the noise, I asked a number of the world’s leading language learning experts for their opinions. These are people I have been following, collaborating with, and learning from over the course of my 15-year career.

What’s the point of education if Google can tell us anything? | information literacy | Scoop.it

Such debate about the place and purpose of online searching in learning and assessments is not new. But rather than thinking of ways to prevent students from cheating or plagiarising in their assessed pieces of work, maybe our obsession with the “authenticity” of their coursework or assessment is missing another important educational point.

DebbyBruck's comment, August 18, 2015 3:29 AM
This is so right on - thank you. Educating one's self online is empowering only if the user understands the difference between "crap collection" and that which is meaningful and useable at the time of curation. Curation only has value when we use the information in the moment as a motivator and inspiration to carry on in bettering ourselves in the here and now. This is my idea of content curation and educating on what speaks to our hearts in the very NOW moment.
DebbyBruck's curator insight, August 18, 2015 4:23 AM

Online searching/learning has a definite and substantial impact in our world today. Just remember to use regularly what you are saving (or curating), and to balance it all with real world experience.  Visit your elders, your neighbors, your parents, your community, your friends (and listen to their stories): in many cases they were alive many decades before you were.  They saw wars, political changes, social movements, etc., that can never be described in the same way online than from first hand experience.  Honor these people by your presence AND learn all you can online. Temper all of it by having one foot in the world of FREE information and one foot in the world of first-hand contact with those who lived those times. The cool thing about attending a school (in person) is you get the best of both worlds - interaction with others and your time online.

Reshmi_Insomreadniac's curator insight, September 16, 2015 9:04 AM

//In an era of informational abundance, educational end-products – the exam or piece of coursework – need to become less about a single student creating an “authentic” text, and more about a certain kind of digital literacy which harnesses the wisdom of the network of information that is available at the click of a button.//

Hoe een kleine bibliotheek dankzij Twitter toch groot kan zijn

Hoe een kleine bibliotheek dankzij Twitter toch groot kan zijn | information literacy | Scoop.it

Het Twitter account van de Orkney Library heeft ruim 16.300 volgers en dat is knap want op de Orkey eilanden (een groep eilanden in het noorden van Schotland) wonen ongeveer 19.500 mensen. De overgrote meerderheid van die volgers is dan ook geen lid van de bibliotheek maar volgt het account alleen maar omdat het zo grappig is. Nou ja, grappig… Melig, hilarisch, flauw en soms onbegrijpelijk want heel erg Brits. Maar het is in elk geval niet saai en zeker niet voorgeprogrammeerd. Het account wordt beheerd door Senior Library Assistant Stewart Bain, de man in het filmpje op de site.

Google en de bibliotheek: concurrenten of natuurlijke partners? | information literacy | Scoop.it

Willen we het boekenimago afschudden en de universiteitsbibliotheek een duidelijke eigen plek geven in de wereld van de digitale technologie dan is er een cultuuromslag nodig. Eerst moeten we de focus op onze eigen bibliotheeksystemen en -tradities loslaten. Dan kijken naar de werkwijze van de gebruiker, en daarvan uitgaan. Vervolgens zijn er de commerciële spelers. Juist zij bieden ons de mogelijkheid om onszelf te herpositioneren: als een verbindende en faciliterende partner tussen de gangbare systemen en onze gebruikers.  Dan staan we niet langer aan de zijlijn. Maar om dit te kunnen is wel een andere manier van werken, en vooral een andere manier van denken vereist.

De ontwikkelingen in de informatietechnologie gaan zo snel dat bibliotheken alleen maar bestaansrecht houden als zij bijblijven; alleen dan kunnen zij hun gebruikers effectief ondersteunen in het gebruik van nieuwe technologieën. Dit vereist een voortdurende flexibiliteit, gespecialiseerde kennis en een duidelijke focus op ICT. Het betekent ook dat er een ander soort werknemer nodig is en een meer bedrijfsmatige en projectmatige manier van werken, die gericht is op output en resultaat. Maar het belangrijkste is dat we ons voornemen geen producten meer ontwikkelen voor de gebruiker, maar alleen nog met de gebruiker.

De gebruiker wil graag informatie VINDEN. Het ZOEKEN van informatie moet zo gemakkelijk mogelijk worden gemaakt. De bibliotheken moeten daarop inspelen als zij in de race willen blijven.

Content is no longer king. Here are five things that are. | information literacy | Scoop.it

A huge amount of what we’ve traditionally call ‘content’ in learning is actually instructional design: the pacing and variety of activities, the flow, the challenge of zeroing in on the best and most enjoyable way to help someone master a particular skill. Those elements aren’t going anywhere.

UX is king.

The problem with UX (user experience) is that customers only really notice its absence. If you absolutely nail the UX of your digital product, the only people who will congratulate you are UX nerds like me. If you mess it up, though, you’ll know about it soon enough. You’ll notice the complaints. You’ll notice the attrition. You’ll notice the churn.
