Nice explaination about content curation as a learning tool!

Nevermore Sithole's curator insight, October 14, 2013 12:24 PM

Article argues that curation is not a new concept for libraries since Librarians select, organise and preserve information. Further, the article argues that content curation involves higher order skills and the ability to appraise sources effectively in order to sieve through large volumes of information. Above all, the article discussess the concepts, aggregation, distillation, elevation, mash-ups and chronology.

Today's students need the ability to do some kind of programming because coding in the classroom includes activities like analysis, understanding, problem solving, creativity, implementation and much more.  Our district has started implementing Scratch so kids can learn to code in elementary school.

Joyce Valenza's curator insight, May 12, 2014 8:36 PM

"Literacy implies a fuller understanding and a rounder knowledge. A literate person is aware of multiple information sources, the pros and cons of media forms, and the value and credibility of information. A literate person can process diverse data sources, and suggest macro relevance and micro application of seemingly disparate ideas."
