Curating Information & Making Sense of Data Is a Key Skill for the Future [Research]

Curating Information & Making Sense of Data Is a Key Skill for the Future [Research] | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The Institute for the Future and the University of Phoenix have teamed up to produce, this past spring, an interesting report entitled Future Work Skills 2020.

 

By looking at the set of emerging skills that this research identifies as vital for future workers, I can't avoid but recognize the very skillset needed by any professional curator or newsmaster.

 

It should only come as a limited surprise to realize that in an information economy, the most valuable skills are those that can harness that primary resource, "information", in new, and immediately useful ways.

 

And being the nature of information like water, which can adapt and flow depending on context, the task of the curator is one of seeing beyond the water,

to the unique rare fish swimming through it.

 

The curator's key talent being the one of recognizing that depending on who you are fishing for, the kind of fish you and other curators could see within the same water pool, may be very different. 

 

 

Here the skills that information-fishermen of the future will need the most:

 

1) Sense-making:

ability to determine the deeper meaning or significance of what is being expressed

 

2) Social intelligence:

ability to connect to others in a deep and direct way, to sense and stimulate reactions and desired interactions

 

3) Novel and adaptive thinking:

proficiency at thinking and coming up with solutions and responses beyond that which is rote or rule-based

 

4) Cross-cultural competency:

ability to operate in different cultural settings

 

5) Computational thinking:

ability to translate vast amounts of data into abstract concepts and to understand data-based reasoning

 

6) New media literacy:

ability to critically assess and develop content that uses new media forms, and to leverage these media for persuasive communication

 

7) Transdisciplinarity:

literacy in and ability to understand concepts across multiple disciplines

 

8) Design mindset:

ability to represent and develop tasks and work processes for desired outcomes

 

9) Cognitive load management:

ability to discriminate and filter information for importance, and to understand how to maximize cognitive functioning using a variety of tools and techniques

 

10) Virtual collaboration:

ability to work productively, drive engagement, and demonstrate presence as a member of a virtual team

 

 

Critical to understand the future ahead. 9/10

Thanks for sharing this from Robin's stream. These skills sets could form the basis of a self-assessment for would-be curators, although they're more conceptual - than practical/tactical. Thanks for sharing and must go rescoop it with a credit you and Robin of course

12 Most Common Barriers to Education Reform

12 Most Common Barriers to Education Reform | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

"While I do believe that we need to alter the way we 'do' education, the removal of defects just isn’t a cure for a system that needs transformation versus repair or alteration. There are many barriers to education reform. I will give kudos to the champions who are trying to make a difference at the state and national levels, but the change (transformation) has to be systemic across local, state and national levels."

5 Ways Technology Has Changed One of Education’s Most Traditional Subjects: History | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

"There’s no denying that the influence of technology is everywhere in today’s classrooms. From the fifth grader using an iPad to the professor projecting digital renderings onto the screen, from the student working in a genome lab to the one getting a degree from onlinedegree.com, the broad reach and applicability of technology has forever altered the way we learn, instruct, explore, and think."

The learning cycle and the power of asynchronous learning activities

The learning cycle and the power of asynchronous learning activities | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

...

When you structure in asynchronous learning activities through the various guises of learning technology tools and carefully facilitate such activities the stages of Taylor's cycle are given the best chance of being rowed through by the learner. It's easy for learners to capsize in the first time they encourage the disorientation stage and they'll keep doing this every time they encounter it. Pretty soon they shy away from the mental states associated with the learning cycle.
