As 2011 slowly drifts away, I’d like to come back to a topic that has been on my mind a lot this year, and speculate on some trends for the upcoming decade. That topic is curation.

Since Stephen Downes’ OLDaily alerted me to Justin Reich’s post earlier this month, I’ve been stewing a lot about Reich’s argument: that open educational resources may be expanding rather than erasing educational inequalities.

Open Thesis: Heather Morrison - Freedom for scholarship in the internet age – DRAFT Jan 22 2012

Open Thesis: Heather Morrison - Freedom for scholarship in the internet age – DRAFT Jan 22 2012 | mathplourde's Open Education | Scoop.it

Heather Morrison has finally made available an early draft of her final thesis titled “Freedom for Scholarship in the Internet Age”.
 
Chapters are themed around open access as a solution to enclosure of knowledge, economics of scholarly communication in transition, scholarly communication as a discipline, and the crisis it’s facing. Morrison explains: “The purpose of this thesis is to further the work of transitioning to an open access scholarly communication system designed to support and prioritize scholarship and the public good rather than profit. The method will involve analysis of key underlying historical trends in society and how they impact scholarly communication, as well as original empirical work on the growth of open access, economic analysis to inform economic aspects of transition, and a case study of scholarly communication in the discipline of communication.”

Create a Presentation With Curated Social Media Content: Slidestaxx

Create a Presentation With Curated Social Media Content: Slidestaxx | mathplourde's Open Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Slidestaxx is a web-based service which allows anyone to easily create a shareable and embeddable visual slide-show by selecting and bringing together existing images, video clips, web sites and other content already available online.

 

My take: I like the idea of being able to produce presentations that contain properly "credited" third party content, but it would be even better to have these functionality integrated in your existing favorite presentation tool rather than elsewhere.

 

I think that this curation-presentation format suffers from the natural constraints of how we look at presentations. One slide at a time. I think that any curated-format benefits from providing the possibility to see both the detail and the larger picture and in this case I feel that the ability to see the presentation, also as an album, woud greatly benefit the value and benefits of this tool.

 

The service is free to use.

 

See a few examples: http://www.slidestaxx.com/about-slidestaxx
