Wisdom in the Age of Information: Maria Popova (Future of StoryTelling 2014) - YouTube

See the rest of our 2014 FoST films here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...

“We live in a world awash of information, but we seem to face a growing scarcity of wisdom,” states Maria Popova, Founder of the website Brain Pickings. Popova believes it’s the storyteller’s role to interpret information and shape it into wisdom for the rest of the culture to share.

Maria Popova is a great curator. Brain pickings is a great infotention tool -- she spends a lot of time and well-thought-out decision-making about what is good to share. 

Peter Skillen's curator insight, October 17, 2014 11:53 AM

An absolutely clever story about the 'ladder of understanding' in which Maria Popova describes 'information as cheap and wisdom as expensive'. Share this with your students/colleagues if you are discussing 'digital citizenship' or even if you're not. :-)

Servant-leadership: the Online Way! E-learning where community building is key

Abstract

The digitalisation of educational communities has increased rapidly in the last decade. Modern technologies transform the way educational leaders such as teachers, tutors, deans and supervisors view and manage their educational communities. More often, educational leaders offer a variety of gateways, guiding the e-learners in their search for finding and understanding information. A new type of leader is required for understanding the needs and requirements of geographically dispersed e-learners. This calls for a compassioned kind of leader, able to reconcile the dilemma of high-tech versus hi-touch in the online classroom. This article examines servant-leadership and its implications for e-learning in the 24/7 classroom where community building is key.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, September 13, 2014 5:42 PM

The role of the teacher in online education is often described as the guide on the side, rather than the sage on the stage. Servant leadership concepts bring nuance and depth to the role of guide or facilitator.


In this article the authors stake out promising new ground for research. "In literature (amongst others Greenleaf, 1977 and 1991; Keith, 2011; Nuijten, 2009; Trompenaars and Voerman, 2009; Sarayrah, 2004; Vargas and Hanlon, 2007 and Spears, 2000) servant-leadership qualities can be found like listening, forgiveness, empathy, humility, care for people and the organization, healing of relationships, awareness, persuasion, courage, giving feedback, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, authenticity, commitment to the growth and empowerment of others and building community. Teachers with some or more of these servant-leadership (high-touch) qualities can make the difference in the e-learning environment. In the (high-tech) online classroom the teacher, more than ever before, needs to be qualified to amongst others listen, care for the e-learners, encourage awareness raising, give feedback and, last but not least, build a vivid learning community. This calls for a compassioned kind of educational leader, able to connect high-tech (technology mediated learning, multimedia infrastructure) opportunities with hi-touch (contact, human interaction, commitment to the growth of others, etc.) opportunities in the online classroom."


The e-learning environments envisioned in this internationally oriented paper describe many of the values driving the University of Wisconsin-Stout's E-Learning and Online Teaching Graduate Certificate.

LLZ Uni Halle's curator insight, July 31, 2014 3:27 AM

"(...) There are two important conclusions from the research: 1. Even for the sole purpose for which lectures may be effective – the transmission of information – the 50 minute lecture needs to be well organized, with frequent opportunities for student questions and discussion. (Bligh provides excellent suggestions on how to do this in his book.) 2. For all other important learning activities, such as developing critical thinking, deep understanding, and application of knowledge – the kind of skills needed in a digital age – lectures are ineffective. Other forms of teaching and learning – such as opportunities for discussion and student activities – are necessary. (...)"

Being able to interact with video allows us to personalize video-based instruction, by leading learners to the segment of video we like them to watch, by adding voice-overs, notes, pop-ups, screenshots, maps, references, pauses. It also allows learners to create video with even more depth and features and can the interaction can be used to support media literacy learning."

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, July 23, 2014 7:38 AM
  • Created for educators, EDpuzzle allows teachers to set up classes, to assign specific video lessons and to engage students in creating their own video lessons.  Analytics share which students watch, when they last watched, and whether they watched at home or at school.
  •  Mozilla PopcornMaker is a powerful multiple-layer video editor that invites users to remix videos to include pop-ups, text boxes, images, maps (even in streetview), as well as Wikipedia articles that continue to update.
  • ThingLink for video,  looks so promising.
  • eduCanon is an interactive learning platform into which teachers may embed questions and any html object.  
  • TED-Ed lessons offer educators the opportunity to customize a TED video to meet their specific instructional needs.
  • Write-on Video is an iPad app that allows users to annotate and animate videos and pictures, by arranging the elements into storyboards and slideshows enhanced by free-hand drawing, text boxes, stamps, and sound clips.

Content Curation: Nine Things To Keep in Mind

If you want to market yourself using social media, content curation is a key part of the process. Here are nine tips to keep in mind while curating content.

9 = Know your target audience; Be consistent; Use content curation tools; Stay on theme; Be selective; Promote a variety of sites; Don't just share big media sites; Spark discussions; Add value.

Terri Rice's curator insight, September 26, 2014 12:48 PM

Marc has given us a great checklist to refer to as we curate. It truly is too easy to become lost in all of the available information. Staying on target is the 1st priority, but saying something worthwhile is 2nd. It's too easy to ramble or puppet authors. I find myself doing this too often. Thank you, Marc for this terrific reminder about quality over quantity.

« An actionable and pertinent list of 9 ideas to follow for an effective content curation, by Tommy Landry from ReturnOnNow.

1. Know Your Target Audience: Whether for Content Marketing, Audience engagement or Thought Leadership, content curation must first follow the basic rule of Marketing: Know your target audience.

2. Be consistent

3. Use Content Curation Tools for Efficiency

4. Stay On Theme (*) It's easy to lose focus when you curate because existing content is... infinite; define and respect your editorial line; curate consistently with your message and values)/

5. Be Selective

6. Promote A Wide Variety of Sites

7. Don't Just Share Big Media Content

8. Spark Discussions

9. Add Value (*) Again, with content curation, mere sharing is possible but not enough: your personal insight, your unique perspective is required. Help, educate, inspire. And be subjective! »

 

(*)  curation-specific rules.

Research: How Video Production Affects Student Engagement

edX recently commissioned a study of nearly 1,000 videos, segmenting them out by by video type and production style, and discovered this among their other findings:

Shorter videos are more engaging. Engagement drops after 6 minutes.Videos with a more personal feeling are more effective than high-fidelity studio recordings.
Videos in which the instructor speaks quickly and with high enthusiasm are more engaging.Khan-style tablet drawings are more engaging than power point slides.
