Si os dedicáis a gestionar y organizar contenidos que después compartís en la red (content curator) este post recomendado por el profesor J. Salinas es fenomenal. Hay que leerlo.

A Flipped Classroom - Students As Curators With Storify

A Flipped Classroom - Students As Curators With Storify | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

"Sherry Stones is presenting the workshop: “A Flipped Classroom: Students as Curators with Storify”.

Storify will be used to demonstrate design multimodal/multimedia research-based assignments, due to its features such as Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos.  

Most of the expected outcomes of the workshop can be associated to teaching and learning in general.


Important ideas:


a) Storify has a great educational potential;

b) You can organize Storify content based on theme or topic;

c) You can easily embed Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos;

d) It helps students develop research, synthesis and presentation skills;

f) It helps students to evaluate the credibility and relevance of web sources;

g) It enables teachers to set assignments and rubric;

h) You can embed a Storify page into a Blog;

i) Other types of Open Access Content are great for embedding on Storify, such as: Xtranormal, Goanimate, Animoto animations; Infographics and Flicker images; Google Docs; Vimeo, Big Think, and Academic Earth videos; Webcomics; Prezi and Google Slideshows; Learning Objects.

Welcome to Museum Box,


This site provides the tools for you to build up an argument or description of an event, person or historical period by placing items in a virtual box. What items, for example, would you put in a box to describe your life; the life of a Victorian Servant or Roman soldier; or to show that slavery was wrong and unnecessary?


You can display anything from a text file to a movie. You can also view and comment on the museum boxes submitted by others.

I'm rather surprised you consider this curation... It's not that it's product-centered, but that it's a limited pool from which any sort of curation can be done.

I think it's curation when they curate their all content from YouTube

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Must-read article on ClutterMuseum.com by Leslie M-B, exploring in depth the opportunity to have students master their selected topics by "curating" them, rather than by reading and memorizing facts about them.


"Critical and creative thinking should be prioritized over remembering content"


"That students should learn to think for themselves may seem like a no-brainer to many readers, but if you look at the textbook packages put out by publishers, you’ll find that the texts and accompanying materials (for both teachers and students) assume students are expected to read and retain content—and then be tested on it.


Instead, between middle school (if not earlier) and college graduation, students should practice—if not master—how to question, critique, research, and construct an argument like an historian."


This is indeed the critical point. Moving education from an effort to memorize things on which then to be tested, to a collaborative exercise in creating new knowledge and value by pulling and editing together individual pieces of content, resources and tools that allow the explanation/illustration of a topic from a specific viewpoint/for a specific need.


And I can't avoid to rejoice and second her next proposition: "What if we shifted the standards’ primary emphasis from content, and not to just the development of traditional skills—basic knowledge recall, document interpretation, research, and essay-writing—but to the cultivation of skills that challenge students to make unconventional connections, skills that are essential for thriving in the 21st century?"


What are these skills, you may ask. Here is a good reference where to look them up: http://www.p21.org/storage/documents/P21_Framework_Definitions.pdf (put together by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills)



Recommended. Good stuff. 9/10

I had a similar conversation yesterday and as I prepare my lit review this thinking has emerged. It is less about content and more about skills, attitudes, habits, practices, etc. in learning.

Priscilla Der's curator insight, April 6, 2014 10:12 PM

This article is a reminder that as we are curating content as teachers so are students. Rather then memorizing or reciting textbook facts, students should be able to steer and set their own learning goals (this is where PBL) comes into mind.

How to turn students into curators.

The Future of Collaborative Social Video Curation Is Here: Zeeik Paves The Way

Robin Good: Zeeik is a new web-based video curation site with a unique slant and some very innovative ideas.


Its key features provide some very stimulating ideas on how in the future you may go about curating, navigating and collecting video to create a guide or make sense of a specific topic.


1) Collaborative Curation

First of all, Zeeik is designed in a way that puts the topic of curation at the center, while allowing multiple users to contribute, search, find and select which video clips would be most appropriate for it.

"Users collaboratively make zeeiks in request-and-replay manner." Zeeiks are also similar to what a video wiki would probably be like, as they allow multiple editors to contribute and shape the final content.

2) Topic and Level Navigation

Second, Zeeik introduces (thank you guys for showing curation startups where is the next gear) a rudimental but still highly effective navigational gizmo, allowing any topic to be easily segmented into many sub-topics and levels. This new visual navigation addition is of the essence in providing a feature that expands the potential of curated content of orders of magnitude. A navigational tool that allows you to intuitively navigate from topic to topic and from high-level view to a very detailed one is exactly what I would like to see show-up across the board of content curation tools in the near future.  


3) Search, Collect and Excerpt Video Content

Third, Zeeik makes easy and effective to search video content on any topic, to tap into your video assets rapidly and to trim and excerpt specific sections from any video you decide to include. 


These ingredients by themselves make Zeeik a truly innovative content curation tool, and while its interface and usability may leave a lot to be desired, I think it deserves high praise for finally breaking new ground. 


Zeeiks can be easily linked or embedded into any web site or blog and can be used to create catalogues, guides, tutorials, textbooks, music album, or just about anything that is video-based.

Curators Key Requirement: Critical Thinking

Robin Good: Critical thinking is a key strategic skill needed by any serious professional curator. 

"Critical thinking provides the keys for our own intellectual independence..." and it helps to move away from "rashy conclusions, mystification and reluctance to question received wisdom, authority and tradition" while learning how to adopt "intellectual discipline" and a way to express clearly ideas while taking personal responsibility for them.

Key takeaways from this video:

Critical thinking refers to a diverse range of intellectual skills and activities concerned with "evaluating information" as well as our own thought in a disciplined way.
 Critical thinking is not just thinking a lot. To be an effective critical thinker you need to seek out and be guided by "knowledge" and "evidence" that fits with reality even if it refutes what the general consensus may want to believe.
 Critical thinkers cultivate an attitude of curiosity and they are willing to do the work required to keep themselves informed about a subject.
 Critical thinkers do not take claims at face value but utilize scepticism and doubt to suspend judgement and objectively evaluate with facts the claims being made.
 Critical thinkers should evaluate information on the basis of reasoning and not by relying on emotions as claims the factuality of a claim cannot be solely based on the level of emotion that accompanies them or the fact that they may be believed by certain groups.

Highly recommended for all curators. 9/10

Thank you for sharing this video and the importance of critical thinking. It is so easy to get into the mindless consumption trap and making ourselves slow down, read, think, question, and seek is so important. It is all about the resisting the urge to click, but to hit the pause button and make yourself think
Mayra Aixa Villar's comment, February 22, 2012 10:14 AM
Grazie come sempre, Robin! You always share valuable information and this video is a great source to reflect on the importance of critical thinking to refine thought processes when curating content. Content curation certainly requires and develops "better thinking".
Gregory Thackston's curator insight, March 17, 2013 4:54 PM

Critical thinking is a key component in addressing autonomous adversity and the need to collaborate in decision making.
