Joyce Valenza's session at Educon. Favorite statement I agree with 100%: "Curating is like telling a story --with voice & context."

This was a great session. It spurred me on to learning more about curation and really understanding the difference between curating and collecting.

However, this quote also resonates with me...

"Information Architecture is an emerging discipline with roots in librarianship; consulting firms offer their experience of creating web sites, intranets, and other interactive elements in order to improve their efficiency and usability."  


Can I now call myself an Information Architect?

Would recommend this as compulsory viewing for all teachers:
How can education adapt to the learning styles of children instead of trying to process them all through a limited system?  How can we engage the students who fail to 'fit in' to that system?

 

"It is the teacher's job to point young minds towards the right kind of question.  The teacher doesn't need to give any answers - the answers are everywhere.... learners who find the answers for themselves retain it better." (Sugata Mitra - Slumdog Professor)

 

Have to agree!

Nancy White's curator insight, December 20, 2012 3:45 PM

Joyce Valenza identifies curating as an "information life skill."  While librarians are uniquely qualified for this task, it is a skill that everyone can benefit from, including students.  Joyce provides links to some of the curating tools available. Good summary, and some excellent questions are posed for futher thought and research.
