Curate Your Personal Clips Into a Shareable Video Mashup with Ptch

This looks great. Could this be an answer to making video more collaborative?

...


Creating a Ptch is simple – select your favorite photos and video clips, choose a style (original, matte, epic, soho, vivid, fillmore, kane or kaskade) to make your Ptch more powerful and then pick a song from the app’s music list. Users can also create titles for their photos.


Once the Ptch is done, press play and share it on your stream or with friends via email, Facebook and Twitter. You can also make your Ptches private if you don’t want to share them."

Curation as an Effective Learning Methodology: The Curation Project

Robin Good: I just discovered that Dr Corinne Weisgerber, a social media professor and Internet researcher at St. Edward’s University in Austin, has introduced this year a "curation assignment" in her social media class with the specific goal of utilizing a curation approach to instigate a more effective learning experience.

 

She writes: "To talk content curation, we really need to think through the duties of a museum curator for a second. A curator scours the art world, selects the finest works, gathers them together around a unified theme, provides a frame to understand the artists’ messages and then hosts a conversation around the collection.


That’s not unlike the 21st century teacher who must comb through an overabundance of information to discover the significant and relevant, bundle those ideas into course modules, contextualize them for the class and then create an environment for students to explore those ideas and enter into a conversation about them.


Over the last couple of years, I’ve come to think of my role as a teacher as that of a curator of ideas (also see my SXSWedu presentation on the topic).


I’ve also come to believe that the steps involved in the curation process are key new media literacies which we should teach our students.


That’s why this spring, I introduced a brand-new curation assignment (described on the back of the syllabus) in my social media class."

 

Worth imitating. 8/10

The Essence of Connected Learning

We are living in a historical moment of transformation and realignment in the creation and sharing of knowledge. This affects all areas of our education. Connected Learning is when you are pursuing knowledge and expertise around something you care deeply about, and you're supported by friends and institutions who share and recognize this common passion or purpose. Watch this video to learn more about what connected learning is all about.

 

Fantastic stuff!! It's not about starting with learning outcomes but experience.
