Re-envisioning Modern Pedagogy: Educators as Curators

Presentation given at SXSWedu on March 6, 2012. <- very nice work on curation process for teachers (JS)

 

I just reviewed this slideshow.  I was pleased to see how I fit the model of Educator as curator.  In particular the author illustrates how Diigo (my main curation project for many years) helps fire the engines of a personal learning network.  When asked why I curate this Digital magazine, I can now refer folks to this excellent presentation. ~ Dennis O'Connor

Dead children don't need an education , killing a child's will is breaking their dreams! Not all have access to alternative ways of expressing themselves.

How Do We Teach Critical Thinking in a Connected World? | Powerful Learning Practice | Doc D's Instructional Design, Technology & Reform News | Scoop.it

Looking back now, I realize something I never understood then — what he had instilled was an ability to think critically. Along with creativity, collaboration, and communication, critical thinking is one of the four components of learning in the 21st century. Unlike the other three, critical thinking is often difficult to reduce to bite-size pieces of understanding and challenging to teach to others.
