Innovations in Education - Developing Future Workskills Through Content Curation | Curation Tools | Scoop.it

"The skills a student employs  to successfully curate information include curiosity, media literacy, ability to make connections across disciplines, information literacy, the ability to evaluate and understand perspective, synthesize and evaluate information, and a good dose of self-direction.  One link in particular has helped move my thinking forward regarding the benefits for students who curate: the Apollo Research Institute Future Workskills 2020 study conducted last year that identifies critical workforce skills that our students will need to be prepared for future jobs.Here is how they line up with the 10 skills identified in this study".

How can we start structuring how to let go of control? "The less educators try to control what kids learn, the more students’ voices will be heard and, eventually, their ability to drive their own learning."

Nancy White's curator insight, August 21, 2013 1:31 PM

I love the fact that Diana responds to teachers who ask her when she just "tells students stuff" -she suggests that if you spark the interest, they can do the research. And...this leads to more ownership and engagement. This is where student curation begins! Great tips for creating a culture of inquiry.

Here is another great example of students curating, and the ownership of the learning shifting to the students as a result.

This has also been shown in other studies. The students manage better text and performance if writing to open Wikipedia instead of school's own wiki.

This quotation says it all: "Addressing teachers in 2012, Heng Swee Keat, Singapore’s Minister for Education, argued for a radical shift in policy: “The educational paradigm of our parents’ generation, which emphasized the transmission of knowledge, is quickly being overtaken by a very different paradigm. This new concept of educational success focuses on the nurturing of key skills and competencies such as the ability to seek, to curate and to synthesize information; to create and innovate; to work in diverse cross-cultural teams; as well as to appreciate global issues within the local context.”

10 iPad Apps for Web Curation Curation vs. Aggregation? Curation is such a necessity these days. The overwhelming wave of information we are exposed to is drowning us in facts and opinion. Not only do we need to be curating the information that we are consuming but we need to be insisting that our students have the skills and necessary tools in which to curate their own world. I have listed a number of capable curation apps that can help to do just that.http://appsineducation.blogspot.com.au/2012/01/10-ipad-apps-for-web-curation.html

Habe EduClipper noch nicht intensiv angeschaut, aber der Service scheint für meinen Geschmack zu sehr auf Grafikelemente / Bilder ausgerichtet zu sein. Ich persönlich bevorzuge Services, die die Kommentare stärker in den Vordergrund stellen und hier möglichst viele Formatierungsmöglichkeiten bieten.
