How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic]

How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic] | libraries and education | Scoop.it

Posted by Jeff Hurt

 

"Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

 

"Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

 

"That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help."

Interesting article. It could explain why students retain less when reading from a screen. They scan rather than read the whole thing. Have to say that I have found myself doing the same thing!

Create or Curate? | Designed For Learning

Create or Curate? | Designed For Learning | libraries and education | Scoop.it

  One of the current hot topics in e-learning is curation. But what exactly is curation?

...

The author does a very good job of describing both how curators work and how curation can work in the classroom. Pulling information to illustrate a point of view or to inform on a particular topic can be a challenge. Do you agree that curation is more difficult than it looks?

in all fairness, credit goes to the author JOHN CURRAN.
Paula Correia's curator insight, April 19, 2013 5:45 AM

“Um dos temas atuais em e-learning é a curadoria. Mas o que é exatamente a curadoria? E que importância tem isso para o e-learning?
Curiosamente a palavra deriva do latim cura - o que significa, literalmente, alguém que se importa. Curadores têm existido há milhares de anos, e o seu papel é definido desta forma:
Tradicionalmente, um curador ou guardião de uma galeria, de um museu, biblioteca ou arquivo supervisiona as coleções de uma instituição e é responsável pela segurança, exibição, documentação e interpretação dos objetos e artefactos na coleção…”

Uma curadoria eficaz envolve uma série de competências-chave: descobrir; filtrar; classificar; sintetizar; resumir; sinalizar; equilibrar criação com curadoria.
