Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Must-read article on ClutterMuseum.com by Leslie M-B, exploring in depth the opportunity to have students master their selected topics by "curating" them, rather than by reading and memorizing facts about them.

 

"Critical and creative thinking should be prioritized over remembering content"

 

"That students should learn to think for themselves may seem like a no-brainer to many readers, but if you look at the textbook packages put out by publishers, you’ll find that the texts and accompanying materials (for both teachers and students) assume students are expected to read and retain content—and then be tested on it.

 

Instead, between middle school (if not earlier) and college graduation, students should practice—if not master—how to question, critique, research, and construct an argument like an historian."

 

This is indeed the critical point. Moving education from an effort to memorize things on which then to be tested, to a collaborative exercise in creating new knowledge and value by pulling and editing together individual pieces of content, resources and tools that allow the explanation/illustration of a topic from a specific viewpoint/for a specific need.

 

And I can't avoid to rejoice and second her next proposition: "What if we shifted the standards’ primary emphasis from content, and not to just the development of traditional skills—basic knowledge recall, document interpretation, research, and essay-writing—but to the cultivation of skills that challenge students to make unconventional connections, skills that are essential for thriving in the 21st century?"

 

What are these skills, you may ask. Here is a good reference where to look them up: http://www.p21.org/storage/documents/P21_Framework_Definitions.pdf (put together by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills)

 

 

Recommended. Good stuff. 9/10

I had a similar conversation yesterday and as I prepare my lit review this thinking has emerged. It is less about content and more about skills, attitudes, habits, practices, etc. in learning.

Priscilla Der's curator insight, April 6, 10:12 PM

This article is a reminder that as we are curating content as teachers so are students. Rather then memorizing or reciting textbook facts, students should be able to steer and set their own learning goals (this is where PBL) comes into mind.

...

In their submissions to the Australian Law Reform Commission’s review of copyright legislation, both Universities Australia and the University of Sydney argue the Copyright Act is holding back innovation in the tertiary education sector.

The sector is particularly concerned that current “fair dealing” provisions in the Copyright Act do not support the use of copyrighted material in the delivery of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

“The University supports copyright law reform that will foster new and innovative ways of providing education to a wider audience,” wrote University of Sydney Vice-Chancellor Dr Michael Spence in the university’s submission to the review.

“Of particular concern are the communication limits that restrict the ability to teach our students in a way that is fair in other jurisdictions,” Dr Spence wrote.

My Top 10 Web Curation Tools as A Teacher ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

Hi everyone. This is a post I am supposed to publish last night but my laptop crashed on me because of a virus and I spent the whole night figuring out how to fix it. My screen was black with a white cursor in the middle, it was really a stressful night but finally I got it fixed. Be careful with the links you click on.

I got some emails from some of you asking for the some curation web tools I use so here is a list of my top 10 in no particular order.This selection is subjective and there are several other tools out there but from my own experience with content curation I find the ones below the best performing web tools. Check them out and share with us what you think of them. Enjoy

....

Phil Parker is unlike any writer you've ever met - or read for that matter. That's because he doesn't write most of his books. Instead, the trained economist uses sophisticated algorithms that can pen a whole book from start to finish in as little as a few minutes. The secret is sophisticated programming mimicking the thought process behind formulaic writing. It can take years to create these programs, but once completed, new books can be churned out in minutes.
