Is Content Curation in Your Skill Set? It Should Be. by David  Kelly : Learning Solutions Magazine | Integrating Technology for L2 Learners and Teachers | Scoop.it

“Curation is an important skill to develop, especially in an environment in which more and more organizations shift towards self-directed learning for their workers. Now is the time for learning and performance professionals to develop this new skill set.”

This is an amazing article that defines curation clearly. Love Rohit Barghava's 5 Models of Content Curation! Using curation tools and methods leads to scholarly content that is chronological, relevant and current. Curation can  generate brilliant original content! All content needs these values!  I  plan to read other publications by this author. Scintillating.

Future steps: exoskeleton lets paralyzed snowmobiler walk again

Future steps: exoskeleton lets paralyzed snowmobiler walk again | Integrating Technology for L2 Learners and Teachers | Scoop.it

Robotic exoskeletons are a staple of sci-fi, pointing to a future where technology can overcome serious injury and bestow superhuman powers on people. But that future is here today for Paul Thacker, who uses an exoskeleton about once a month to stand up and walk around — no small feat, considering he's paralyzed from the chest down.

6 YouTube lessons for building better instructional videos

6 YouTube lessons for building better instructional videos | Integrating Technology for L2 Learners and Teachers | Scoop.it

With the rise of the blended learning model of education, video is becoming an increasingly important medium for instruction. The essential components of blended learning - such as flipped classrooms, MOOCs and “Bring Your Own Device” programs - are facilitated by video instruction to ensure the personalization and flexibility of a digitized education system.


Via Dennis T OConnor
Becky Mowat's insight:

I have been using videos creating L2 lessons for a long time to introduce, define and explain topics, also to pique curiosity to learn more... This article  clearly states what attributes a good learning/teaching video should have: brevity, piques curiosity, interesting graphics, real world setting. As educators we can understand why these qualities add value to video content in lessons. For L2 learners I especially like the way LingleOnline uses close-captioned video in many languages to meet the needs of its learners.

Becky Mowat's comment, September 23, 2013 8:27 AM
Yes it is so true- be concise, pique curiosity, and use authentic video. Real world settings are so important when teaching L2 learners. A picture still is worth a 1000 words, so just think how much time we save "getting the message across" using brief videos to introduce or define or explain lesson topics.

I like some of these ideas. I'm thinking we could have students make podcast booktalks and have QR codes linking to them in the books or on a display or around the school. Hmm...kids can't use their phones at school, yet. Well, I can always put links to them in our catalog and on the website.

Using E-Portfolios in the Classroom

Using E-Portfolios in the Classroom | Integrating Technology for L2 Learners and Teachers | Scoop.it

With more and more schools going paperless or migrating to the "cloud" (storing files on the Internet), student work has become more easily shareable, accessible by many, and more easily organized. Many teachers have turned to digital portfolios -- or "e-portfolios" -- for their students. These digital portfolios have caused a huge shift in how teachers assign, collect and assess student classwork and projects.


Via Nik Peachey

What a dynamic positive shift for students and teachers alike! E-Portfolios induce motivation, engagement, accountability and make assessments more relevant!  E-portfolio platforms  provide practical online solutions to streamline and monitor task,feedback and assessment processes.
