Liberating Learning with Web 2.0
The function of the World Wide Web combined with easy and increasingly widespread access has emerged as a factor for new modes of learning outside the control of the educational establishment. Not only is there increased access to information, diverse facts in different fields of knowledge, but a greater likelihood that the learner will encounter discrepant positions and information that force them to think critically, creatively and collaboratively.

Despite access to technology and despite the fact that novice teachers are entering the classroom with far more advanced technology skills than their counterparts of an earlier age, only 39 percent of teachers report "moderate" or "frequent" use of technology as an instructional tool

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.


Via Nik Peachey
Ludmila Smirnova's insight:

It is a reed that to be educated today is to be not just knowledgeable but to be able to share, enlighten others with what you know, to be a curator of knowledge. I am curious what Nik Peachey has to say about curation in his essay!
