Dr. Helen Teague's insight:

From Robin Goode's scoop note: "

"If you can be a guide, a clearinghouse, a trusted place from where to learn, appreciate and understand more, there is no amount of outbound links that is going to counter the magnetic force you will express to those who are interested in what you are pointing to."


This is why the fear every company has about content curation -  talking about *others* in the same field - has not only no reason to exist, but it is also downright counterproductive as soon as others start using it.


Content curation is a venue to make sense of existing information to facilitate access, discovery, comparison, understanding, both on the side of who curates as well as on the one of those who benefit from it.


Part of my inspiration in becoming so passionate and interested in content curation, has been ignited by a post that appeared in 2004, on Robert Scoble's popular tech blog. 

In it, I read: "It's the new marketing... Instead of being desperate and saying "look at me look at me" you tell your readers to get lost.

Go someplace else.


What's the philosophy?

 

Those sites will take you to the coolest stuff on the Internet. And by doing that, Engadget and Gizmodo have BECOME the coolest places on the Internet. Just like Craig's List, Google, eBay."

 
Takeaway: The more valuable resources, info and tools you share with your audience/community the more trustworthy and reputable you will appear in their hearts and eyes. 

"Send your visitors away" is a simple but valuable content marketing advice and it is at the heart of what a good content curator does. Finding and sharing great resources that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. "

What Can Programmers and Writers Learn From One Another?

What Can Programmers and Writers Learn From One Another? | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
Simple, elegant solutions work, no matter the discipline.
Dr. Helen Teague's insight:

"There are more similarities between coding and prose than meet the eye. “The interesting thing about writing code is you don’t really write code for the machine,” said Vikram Chandra, a professor of creative writing at UC Berkeley and author of “Geek Sublime,” on KQED’s Forum. “That’s almost an incidental byproduct. Who you really write code for is all the programmers in the future who will try to fix it, extend it and debug it."

Technology-Mediated Teacher Noticing: A Goal for Classroom Practice, Tool Design, and Professional Development

Walkoe, , Wilkerson, and Elby introduce technology-mediated teacher noticing (TMTN): a vision for the design and use of technology-mediated tools that takes seriously the need for teachers to attend to, interpret, and respond to their students’ thinking. This vision is situated at the intersection of research on teacher noticing, and on technology to support student thinking. We synthesize that work to highlight specific ways that technology-mediated classroom tools can focus and stabilize teachers’ attention on valuable aspects of student thinking emphasized by current reform efforts. We then illustrate TMTN with classroom examples in which technology supported or obstructed teachers' attention to student thinking, and consider implications for research on technology in teacher practice, professional development, and the design of technological tools for K-12 classrooms.

Learning By Thinking: How Reflection Improves Performance

Learning By Thinking: How Reflection Improves Performance | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it

"*Learning from direct experience can be more effective if coupled with reflection-that is, the intentional attempt to synthesize, abstract, and articulate the key lessons taught by experience.

 

*Reflecting on what has been learned makes experience more productive.

 

*Reflection builds one's confidence in the ability to achieve a goal (i.e., self-efficacy), which in turn translates into higher rates of learning."

Assessing teacher education and professional development needs for the implementation of integrated approaches to STEM education

Assessing teacher education and professional development needs for the implementation of integrated approaches to STEM education | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it

Given the growing interest in, and relevance of, integrated approaches to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education, there is an urgent desire to understand the challenges and obstacles to developing and implementing integrated STEM curricula and instruction. In this article, the researchers present phase 1 of a two-phase needs assessment study to identify challenges and needs of promoting integrated approaches in STEM education. Utilizing a key informant approach, 22 K-12 teachers and four administrators selected as potential leaders in STEM education in an unidentified state on the East Coast of the USA were interviewed. Participants were asked to identify challenges and perceived supports to conduct integrated STEM education. Questions were open-ended in order to inform a larger, state-wide questionnaire study in phase 2 to be reported subsequently and were qualitatively coded. doi:10.1186/s40594-017-0068-1

Making the Invisible Visible: A New Method for Capturing Student Development in Makerspaces

Researchers Davis, Schneider, and Blikstein introduce a new kind of assessment developed to capture students’ learning in makerspaces, and we present a new perspective on how participating in a maker workshop impacts students. As opposed to traditional pen and paper tests, Davis, Schneider, and Blikstein designed a series of hands-on task that participants complete before and after a maker workshop. In this paper, we contrast high-school students’ performance with experts (graduate students in mechanical engineering) and found evidence that the students’ behavior became more similar to experts’ after participating in a maker workshop. For the scope of this paper, Davis, Schneider, and Blikstein focus on a single task and describe in detail our coding scheme and analyses. Additionally, they show how a combination of qualitative and computational analysis helped them develop metrics to compare novices’ and experts’ performances. We conclude by discussing the potential of this type of assessment for supporting students’ learning in makerspaces.
