Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections [ACTIVITY] - The Tempered Radical

Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections [ACTIVITY] - The Tempered Radical | John Dewey | Scoop.it
While there are a ton of essential skills that today's students need in order to succeed in tomorrow's world, learning to efficiently manage -- and to evaluate the reliability of -- the information that they stumble across online HAS to land somewhere near the top of the "Muy Importante" list.

Which is why I had a few of my students experimenting with Scoop.it this week:
..
Specifically, they put together this collection of resources spotlighting the range of perspectives people have on New York City's decision to ban the sale of sugary drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces.

Designed to give users the chance to create curated collections of resources on topics that they are interested in, Scoop.it is a wicked mashup of digital goodness - part feed reader, part blogging tool, and part social bookmarking service.
...
Basically, Scoop.it can become a one-stop shop for (1). teaching kids to search, (2). giving kids chances to manage information, to evaluate sources and to build collections and (3). allowing kids to easily publish content on topics that they care about.

How the Flipped Classroom Turned Me into a Better Student - Getting Smart

How the Flipped Classroom Turned Me into a Better Student - Getting Smart | John Dewey | Scoop.it

Kylie is a 12th Grade Student at Clintondale High School, in Clinton Township, Michigan


My first two years of high school were a continuous struggle. I wasn’t very engaged during class, had a difficult time doing my homework, and was unable to get help from my parents because they didn’t know the material that I was being assigned.

What Is A Flipped Classroom?

What Is A Flipped Classroom? | John Dewey | Scoop.it
A flipped or reverse classroom is a form of blended/hybrid learning which encompasses the use of educational technologies to leverage the learning in a classroom. As a result, a teacher spend more time interacting with students by using learning-based activities instead of lecturing.
