A great way to aggregate and present content to students.  Or even better, flip that process and have students create their own content collections.

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Hats to Susan Mernit, who has an excellent piece on Knight Digital Media Center about how to do effective news curation and storytelling with Storify.

 

She brings in lots of relevant stories and examples showcasing how other individuals and journalists have been effectively using this news curation platform.

 

"The most successful creators of Meograph and Storify pages are united by one thing: they’re skilled editors and curators who know how to look at content posted on multiple social networks and pull out the pieces that will best help them to tell a story."

 

“Storify is the best way to gather tweets, comments, snippets and images from all around the Web and put them into one post. It's a new way of blogging that lets all your Internet friends participate.”

 

Brava Susan, great job and superglad to have intercepted you again.

 

 

Instructive. Informative. Resourceful. 8/10

This infographic provides insight into showing how to enhance learning. Critical thinking is an important skill in today's world. Students need encouragement in taking ownership of their own learning. We can find ways to encourage students from this link.

A really good overview of the issues in Online and Distance Education. Prof Keppell explores the context, the enablers, digital literacies, personalised learning and user generated content. He raises questions about the skills students need to succeed and how we can assist students to manage the transition into digital life.

catspyjamasnz's curator insight, March 18, 2013 8:32 AM

This article makes the case for networked staff development:

 

process of training must start with a clear identification of need. Pupils work better knowing the purpose of learning, and so do we!

 

Secondly, once the need is clearly identified, teachers need to access expertise both within school and from outside. Training that fails to take in to account local knowledge and context is likely to be irrelevant, less effective, and poorly received in the same way that teaching that ignores pupil's own knowledge is ineffective.

External expertise matters to avoid group think and false glass ceilings, and to make sure precious development time is focused on genuinely effective approaches.

 

training has to be sustained. Once they've tried it out they need to access the expertise again on several occasions to build their own confidence, correct misunderstandings, and overcome barriers.

 

 

Lastly, professional development has to be active and collaborative. Us teachers are just as prone to tuning out of a "lecture" and contemplating lunch instead as any pupil.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, March 18, 2013 11:47 AM

The essence is this: "... the good news is that great teacher learning is a remarkably similar beast to the great pupil learning". The article then explains how great teacher training starts with asking teachers for their needs and then designing your offer (rather than the other way around and starting with the courses you have).

Robin Good's comment, November 12, 2013 9:03 AM
RebelMouse was born to build a social media hub, but it does have strong aggregation, filtering and curation capabilities. SEO-wise it is not a great choice, but also Scoop.it has quite a few limits on this front. <br><br>Rebelmouse doesn't offer all of the extras Scoop.it has, from scheduling, to sharing to an extended number of social networks, to integration with newsletter and to the backend dashboard. <br><br>Scoop.it has also a better, cleaner and more legible format, that better lends itself to more in-depth reading than just browsing titles, images and tweets.
Stan Smith's comment, November 12, 2013 9:22 AM
While I still use RebelMouse I have disconnected all inbound links because it posts it wacky and I was always having to go back and edit stuff. Now that I post stuff manually with their applet it isn't so bad. I still prefer Scoop.it though.
