Maureen, I agree. Google does use AND as the default. In their defense, I believe the confusion is because not all searches do. Some still use OR.

Organizing Resources and Maintaining Them Over Time: That's What A Curator Does - The Discipline of Organizing


Via Robin Good
more...
Robin Good's curator insight, November 24, 2013 12:50 PM


The Discipline of Organizing is a book, published by the MIT Press that offers a framework for the theory and practice of organizing anything. 
 

A short, 7-page PDF synthesizing and introducing the book main ideas has just been published as part of the latest Bulletin of the Association for Information Science and Technology (Vol.40- N.1).


The PDF, as well as the book, have been authored by Robert G. Glushko (who teaches in the School of Information at the University of California, Berkeley) and, as I mentioned, are devoted to introduce the relevance of the TDO (The Discipline of Organizing) to anyone involved in organizing and maintaining content archives or in curating any type of digital content online. 

 From the PDF:

"A set of resources is transformed by an organizing system when the resources are described or arranged to enable interactions with them.


Explicitly or by default, this transformation requires many interdependent decisions about the identities of resources; their names, descriptions and other properties; the classes, relations, structures and collections in which they participate; and the people or technologies that interact with them.


These decisions and the analysis needed to make them have been systematized in The Discipline of Organizing, recently published by MIT Press in both print and eBook formats." 


The PDF provides a good starting point to start asking the right questions needed to develop an organizing framework and to understand why they are so relevant.


"A very practical implication of teaching organizing using more generic concepts and vocabulary is that it enables students to obtain jobs with firms that might not otherwise hire them.

For example, a student who says she knows about curation can’t as easily sell her skillsto a business looking for someone to develop a business continuity plan as one who recognizes that “organizing resources and maintaining them overtime” is the skill the company wants and the one she has.
"


My comment: Useful for defining an organizing framework for anyone new to doing it. Could be more pragmatic and example-rich.  6/10

more than only rescooping, I would like to say that it is the challenge of every scientist, researcher, MD, and particularly university teacher who has to surf on waves of information. Curation, and especially scoop.it helps to keep abreast and more importantly to organize or at least to save and find again what has been collected in the cloud!

A look at three presentation tools that you might want to use.

* Haiku Deck is a free app that allows you to create presentations with slick graphics that they provide or you may use your own. They will soon be releasing a web-based app so head over to their site to sign up for it.

* Projeqt is another web-based presentation tool. It has an easy to use interface and you can bring in materials from a range of sources.

* Google Presentation allows for collaboration and much more. Google continues to add features including a range of templates and the ability to easily share.

Which one is right for you? Check them all out and determine which would best meet your needs. Have fun exploring!

A Must See Visual Featuring The 5 Levels of Student Engagement ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must See Visual Featuring The 5 Levels of Student Engagement ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | LearningSquared | Scoop.it

"After posting about the "10 ways to get your students engaged" here is another good visual I learned about from Mindshift and which outlines different levels of engagement. As I have already  argued elsewhere here in this blog, getting today's students deeply engaged (the first level of engagement below) in the learning experience taking place in class is not an easy task. Unless students see a direct relevance between  what they are going to learn and how that information will help them them in their actual life , it becomes hard to hook and maintain their attention. Proponents of socio-cultural linguistics emphasize the importance of "context" in learning. Learning materials that are contextualized and tailored to speak to the immediate context of the learners are more likely to get students engaged and hence increase their rate of retention and comprehensibility."

Flipped Classroom: 10 Pros and Cons

Flipped Classroom: 10 Pros and Cons | LearningSquared | Scoop.it

"Many of us can recall instances in our lives where we found ourselves idly sitting in a classroom, eyes glazed over, half listening to our teacher as they lectured in front of the room.

 

These scenes are all too familiar in today’s schools, as the traditional model of learning has primarily revolved around a teacher-centered classroom, where instructors focus on conveying information, assigning work, and leaving it to the students to master the material. Though effective for some, this type of instruction has forced students to be merely receptors of information, rather than participants in their own learning processes through active learning. Fortunately, as technology has increasingly grown and infiltrated our classrooms, a new learning model has emerged that moves away from a teacher-centered space, and onto a more collaborative, student-centered learning environment, by way of a flipped classroom."

VLEs still have their place for now as a stable baseline but these new emerging and possibly transcient technologies are like riding a bunch of wild horses, jumping from one to another as they stampede through the plain. There's not time to be an expert in a single technology anymore, just jack of all or master of some perhaps?
