Curation: Creatively Filtering Content

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Curation is a life skill and an important part of being digitally literate.  Educators need to know how to curate information so they can teach students how they can curate content for research, their interests and passion. As part of this process educators need to encourage students to curate information using techniques that address their own personal learning needs.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, August 24, 1:49 PM

We introduce content curation using both Diigo and Scoop.it in our E-Learning for Educators class. It's our firm belief that online teachers must be information fluent and that they teach those skills to their online students.


We also see these skills as a strong foundation for building personal learning networks.

Gilbert Faure au nom de l'ASSIM's comment, Today, 4:05 AM
loving your figure! obvious for curators, not so much for students and teachers
Aparna Nagaraj's curator insight, Today, 10:30 AM

You come across a lot of stuff, find some of them valuable, find value in some parts, and you see connections between the different stuff you come across. You curate by filtering, extracting, and bringing out the connection between the stuff you find, and this curated new stuff becomes more valuable than those already shared stuff that you found. Valuable enough to be shared to others who are looking for similar stuff as you are.

The Future of Libraries Infographic

The Future of Libraries Infographic | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Libraries have been predicted to go extinct by 2019. So what are they doing to guard against the future?
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"The physical space of an academic library is also becoming an issue. While a majority of a library’s brick-and-mortar space is devoted to physical volumes, on average, half of the physical library materials never circulate. And as physical books and journals become less-used by students, librarians’ training has become outdated. Many current librarians are inadequately trained in the use of new electronic resources, creating a barrier to integrating e-books and other electronic resources into academic libraries."

A Surprising New Study On How Video Games Impact Children

A Surprising New Study On How Video Games Impact Children | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

Is gaming healthy? It depends on how we collectively define ‘health.’ Dr. Przybylski’s study uses a widely accepted SDQ (strength and difficulty questionnaire) method of measuring “internalizing and externalizing problems,” “prosocial behavior,” and “life satisfaction.” He found that in some cases, gaming is beneficial. “Compared with non-players, children who typically invest less than one-third of their daily free time showed higher levels of prosocial behavior and life satisfaction and lower levels of conduct problems, hyperactivity, peer problems, and emotional symptoms.”

Josué Cardona's curator insight, August 27, 9:40 PM

"In other words, video games are comparable to other kinds of imaginative play. And play, most folks tend to agree, is of vital importance. Adults and children need more of it. However, the popular notion that somehow video games belong in a different category–such as ‘bad play’–is absurd."
