Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.

The Creative Personality ~ Psychology Today

The Creative Personality ~ Psychology Today | learningwithtech | Scoop.it

By Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi,

 

"Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives. Most of the things that are interesting, important, and human are the result of creativity. What makes us different from apes—our language, values, artistic expression, scientific understanding, and technology—is the result of individual ingenuity that was recognized, rewarded, and transmitted through learning.

 

"When we're creative, we feel we are living more fully than during the rest of life. The excitement of the artist at the easel or the scientist in the lab comes close to the ideal fulfillment we all hope to get from life, and so rarely do. Perhaps only sex, sports, music, and religious ecstasy—even when these experiences remain fleeting and leave no trace—provide a profound sense of being part of an entity greater than ourselves. But creativity also leaves an outcome that adds to the richness and complexity of the future.

 

"I have devoted 30 years of research to how creative people live and work, to make more understandable the mysterious process by which they come up with new ideas and new things. Creative individuals are remarkable for their ability to adapt to almost any situation and to make do with whatever is at hand to reach their goals. If I had to express in one word what makes their personalities different from others, it's complexity. They show tendencies of thought and action that in most people are segregated. They contain contradictory extremes; instead of being an "individual," each of them is a "multitude."

7 Things Teachers Need to Know about The Relation between The Brain and Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

7 Things Teachers Need to Know about The Relation between The Brain and Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | learningwithtech | Scoop.it

The core concept behind effective instruction is differentiation and adaptation particularly now that technology and digital media is taking over every facet of our life. Being able and ready to adapt your teaching methods to your students emerging learning needs is the key to a successful teaching career. Adaptation requires  thinking analytically about what goes on when students are engaged in learning. Some get the point so rapidly without the need for exhaustive explanations but others are slow learners and call for longer time.

Richard Mayer and Ruth Clark are among the foremost researchers in the empirical testing of media and media mix hypotheses in online learning. Their e-Learning and the Science of Instruction (2003) covers seven design principles; multimedia, contiguity, modality, redundancy, coherence, personalisation, and practice opportunities. Clear explanations are given about the risks of ignoring these principles - with support from worked examples and case study challenges. It should be a compulsory text for online learning designers.

 Media mix is not mind rich

Their precise studies have confirmed that our media mix (text, graphics, audio, animation, video) in online learning is often flawed, resulting in cognitive overload and dissonance.....

Can we learn anytime and anyplace? Yes, we can. Is this part of a new hidden curriculum where we are tethered and shackled to our work?

frankie roberts's curator insight, June 5, 6:35 AM

I wonder to what degree the blended or even online PD approaches outlined in this intriguing report will be accepted by the teaching community here in Australia? To the best of my knowledge, the majority of PD offerings in Australia are the traditional one:many off-site presentations. There are some instances of in-house literacy coaches such as me in Adelaide who provide on-going mentoring with individual teachers. For our context, in which my teachers and I meet 1:1 weekly and then team-teach once or twice per week, coaching has proven to be an invaluable model. Sustainable teacher capacity is being built and improvement in student literacy outcomes right across the curriculum are being experienced.

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, August 7, 2013 1:26 PM

Humans have brains, where the brain of a social insect colony is the colony itself, coordinated through pheromone trails and other stigmergic signalling. For that reason, it's important to view collective intelligence data from social insects critically when extrapolating to humans. However, if any mechanisms of collective intelligence in non-intelligent organisms augmented through chemical trails can be extrapolated to collective intelligence among humans using language, artifacts, methodology, and training (c.f., Douglas Engelbart), the knowledge could improve the design of augmented social cognition systems.

MOOCs: Who’s using MOOCs? 10 different target audiences

MOOCs: Who’s using MOOCs? 10 different target audiences | learningwithtech | Scoop.it

The problem is that the decision makers often don’t have the marketing skills to differentiate between different addressable audiences. External adult learners may not want a long-winded, over-engineered, six to ten week course on anything. Life’s too short. Yet academics are used to producing courses of this semester length. What many may want are mini MOOCs. They may want them to be asynchronous starting and ending when convenient for them. This, of course, is exactly what’s happening. All in all, however, the good news is that MOOCs are forcing HE institutions to change. MOOCs may very well be the force that makes them more open, transparent and relevant. There will, of course, be a backlash, but the digital genie is out of the bottle - MOOCs are here to stay.
