Why Curation Is Important for Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons, Tools and Resources

Why Curation Is Important for Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons, Tools and Resources | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Is Curation the new search?  Robin Good proposes that it is.  I believe that we do trust some people more than some algorithms.  This is a very interesting article about how curation can shape education.

Robin Good: Content curation will play a major role both in the way we "teach" and in the way we educate ourselves on any topic. When and where it will be adopted, it will deeply affect many key aspects of the educational ecosystem.

 

This article, builds up over my recent presentation on Content Curation for Education that I delivered at Emerge2012 virtual conference.

 

In that presentation I claimed that the adoption of "curation approaches" will directly affect the way competences are taught, how textbooks are put together, how students are going to learn about a subject, and more than anything, the value that can be generated for "others" through a personal learning path.

 

If we learn not by memorizing facts, but by collaborating with others in the creation of a meaningful collection-explanations of specific topics/issues/events then, for the first time in history, we can enrich planetary knowledge each time we take on a new learning task.

 

And it's already happening.

 

Yes, we are only at the very early stages, but, in my humble opinion, there are enough signs and indications that this is not going to be something marginal.

 

In this article I outline ten key factors, already at work, which, among others, will very likely pave the way for a much greater and rapid adoption of curation practices in the educational / academic world.

The Key to Media's Hidden Codes

Wow.  Somebody or some team worked very hard to create this effective video for helping students learn the importance of how to decode media messages.

Colors, camera angles and logos in the media can all prompt immediate associations with emotions, activities and memories.

Top Tech Trends and People of 2012

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

If you would like a free tablet-friendly PDF file, just email me at kenmorrison30 @ yahoo.com (no spaces)

This is a course created by fellow curator Ken Morrison.  It contains enough information on social media that everyone will find something of interest.  Thanks for sharing, Ken!
