YOUmedia Expansions Offer Teens Student-Centered Learning Opportunities with Digital Media | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning

YOUmedia Expansions Offer Teens Student-Centered Learning Opportunities with Digital Media | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning | School libraries and learning | Scoop.it

DreamYard, the biggest arts education provider in the Bronx, marks YOUmedia’s debut into a community-center model.
“We felt at home with the philosophy right away,” said Tim Lord, co-executive director of DreamYard, which provides arts education through afterschool programs and at its own public high school, DreamYard Preparatory. DreamYard launched a YOUmedia program at its community arts center this summer, with a full roll-out planned for the fall.
One of the ideas that intrigued Lord was that of “connected learning”—another idea from Ito’s work that is becoming a catch-phrase in digital media and learning circles. Connected learning essentially means learning that is socially connected, interest driven, and directed toward concrete goals. The idea is for young people to develop a personal interest — with the help of professional adults and others interested in the same subject — and then turn that interest into actual academic and professional success or meaningful civic engagement.

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | School libraries and learning | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse  

Share it.

An excellent and thought-provoking read :

....getting better grades doesn’t mean you’ve learned more...the incentives facing students are wrong...leads to homogenous thinking and lack of creativity – undesirable traits in the world today.

School libraries and school librarians must move beyond the ... rhetoric...

It is important to ground this advocacy on strong research evidence, as well as evidence born in and derived from professional action.. that demonstrates this in tangible and meaningful ways.

... evidence-based practice ....is an approach to articulating the basis of our beliefs and the claims we can make about the value and role of libraries.

I see it is a move from a rhetorical warrant to an evidential warrant for school libraries; from a tell me framework to a show me framework, from a persuasive or advocacy framework to a declarative framework.

Exploring the flipped classroom model : What if Professor Plum is no longer in the library?

If there’s one thing I’m sure of, it is that guided tours of databases and lessons on navigating Dewey do not an experiential activity make. Do we need to climb off the soapbox, and acknowledge that for students these resources and lessons are a total yawn until they really need them?
