Social Media Curation Is Not Just Sharing Bookmarks: An Introductory Guide [Video]
Michael Britt's comment, Today, 9:11 AM
Here's one thing that I think is not addressed well in this video or indeed on other resources that address curation: the Explain part of her FACETS acronym. I agree that ideally the curator should explain why any particular item of the collection is included in the curation, but also I think it's important to explain how one item relates to another. I don't see how this can be done with any of the curation tools I have seen. How can the curator effectively explain to the visitor what the relationship is between different items in the collection in a way that's easy for the visitor to follow? Right now it seems to me that the curator would have to say in his/her notes, "This item is similar to the one I added to the collection back in January....take a look at...go back to..." etc. That's awkward and clumsy. Any solutions to this?

Great question - "Are the students going to learn more from engaging with this learning object if they can see you in it?" If no, then you may well be better creating an 'audio' recording of your talk and supporting this with slides/images from your presentation.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, March 21, 9:42 PM

EXCEPTIONAL work here by Column Five. My favorite section discusses how to find the story in your data. I've had to hone this sense of STORY too and here are tips I would add:

* Look for the hero's journey, the outlier.
* Patterns = PEOPLE (never forget that)
* Know some color theory so you don;t send COOL messages with HOT data.
* Careful with PEOPLE (see people rules below).
* If it looks like mud it is.

People Usage Rules
People in visual data can be very distracting. Readers eyes go where the eyes in the image go, so if you have a critical chart point your people's gaze at that chart and your readers will follow.

"Mud" means unclear and noisy. The point of making data visual is to isolate THE STORY. You know you are there when your audience repeats your ideas with little confusion or "fill in the gap" reinterpretation.

Your message will NEVER come back 100% like you sent it out, but that okay. LISTEN carefully to the spin and look for the pattern. When your customers reinterpret your story you may learn about what is really resonant...always a good thing.

Creating An iPad Workflow For Teachers, Students, And Parents - TeachThought

Creating An iPad Workflow For Teachers, Students, And Parents - TeachThought | learning design | Scoop.it

"Using tablets in the classroom–whether iPads, Androids, or surging Windows devices–is largely a matter of workflow.

 

If you can forgive a mixed metaphor, the traditional classroom sees the teacher as the both the director and the bottleneck of all productivity. They create assignments, assess proficiency, respond to assessment data, and refine planned instruction in light of constantly changing circumstances.

 

This is challenging in any context, but in 1:1 and mobile learning environments, it’s even more complex. With tablets, every student has both an information portal and a digital printing press. This means they can reach both communities and potential collaborators.

 

The above graphic from @ipadwells addresses this issue with a helpful graphic that visualizes a workflow, while offering up representative apps for each step of the process."

theo kuechel's comment, November 5, 2013 7:40 AM
Steve; you are correct in saying that many people may happily watch a movie or TV programme for extended periods but the watching and enjoying the experience as an end in itself. In education a video clip is usually only a part of a learning activity, often designed to lead to clear learning outcomes. It also has to fit into a learning context and schedule. Any longer and such intentions may become blurred. I had not thought of Graham’s interpretation but it is fascinating. As Bonnie and Stephen imply - whilst the aesthetic quality or effective use of the grammar of film may be important in some contexts - at other times not so much - e.g. historic footage, how to play a musical instrument.<br>
theo kuechel's comment, November 11, 2013 4:23 AM
A point often overlooked; is that the purpose of educational video is; that it is expected to result in a positive learning action, investigation or recorded reflection that can be assessed. Educational video is usually only one part of a learning activity, something quite different from watching a film or TV, which is usually an end in itself. Whilst there are some excellent ‘educational’ TV programmes, for example those produced by the BBC or National Geographic their scope often is too wide for clear focus on a given learning activity. Educational video can now take advantage of a number different formats available e.g. six second cinemagraphs (e.g Vine, animated gifs), animated video-graphics, screencasts which are all suited to short clips. One of the affordances of digital (online) video is that it can be paused, and replayed and reviewed or annotated as part of a learning activity, and delivery is also changing through MOOCS, flipped classrooms and mobile technology.
theo kuechel's comment, November 11, 2013 4:34 AM
agree with some of the commentators that the craft of filmmaking is still very important especially scripting, storyboarding, representation and the grammar of film. These qualities can be present in short and long and multiformat pieces - and students (and teachers) can learn a great deal by being familiar with them. As @rebecca says this has to be seen in relation to a teachers other responsibilities.<br>

I love Flipboard and use it as a supplementary textbook filled with literature notes that I have gleaned off the Internet for my pupils or that I have created myself on Google Drive. I have connected my Twitter account to Flipboard, so I can send tweets of my material, which can then easily be flipped into a magazine of my choice.

With its magazine function Flipboard is an attractive cross platform means of curating and delivering content fro teaching purposes.
