We don't look at social as something we do, we look at social as part of who we are.

Luca Brigada's curator insight, March 18, 2013 6:56 PM

"Ideally before any show begins production we'll sit down with our TV development team, the show's creators and our marketing and digital teams to kick around social ideas and discuss what we think makes the most sense for that particular show. We focus on ideas that complement the show's content, that will have a wide reach and that are technically feasible to achieve.

Our major emphasis is that any social TV content has to feel organic to the audience and authentic to the show, not like it's a force fit, because that's not fun for anyone. We'll discuss dozens of ideas and then hone in on the one that makes the most sense. Sometimes that's a variation on something we've done before, but most often it's something that no one has tried before. Those are the most gratifying."

Robin Good's curator insight, January 23, 2013 10:56 AM


TextMaster is a crowdsourced copywriting, proofreading and text translation platform that can be utilized to obtain in a short time good quality texts on any topic assigned or translations of "original" contents you submit yourself.


TextMaster offers different three different levels of quality depending on whether you need just a basic editor or someone who is linguistically professional or even an expert in the specific topic area in which you need your content to be prepared.


Techcrunch writes: "TextMaster offers a platform for content creators to crowdsource their copywriting, translation and proofreading needs via its community of ‘professionals’ who have each gone through a quality vetting process and are paid per word.


We’ve previously described the service as a bit like Mechanical Turk but for a very specific niche.


TextMaster claims that 4,000 clients have used the service in its 12 months of operation, including AlloCiné, Cityrama, and Zagat, while its ‘crowd’ has grown to 35,000 copy editors, writers and translators who have processed “more than 12.5 million words.”


...TextMaster is available in eight languages: French, English, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, and Chinese."


I have requested an instant quote for a full translation from English to Italian by copying and pasting an article of mine of 1382 words into this page http://us.app.textmaster.com/clients/fastlane#content and got two estimates:


a) Basic level $36.76 - suggested bundle C 5,000 credits for $66.50


b) Standard level $104.48 - sugg. Bundle D 15,000 credits for $189

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics | Medialia | 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

How to turn students into curators.

Sample Student's curator insight, May 5, 2015 10:14 PM

We often ask our students to create annotated bibliographies, and this focuses on their capacity to evaluate and make decisions about the validity, reliability and relevance of sources they have found. using Scoop.it, we can ask them to do much the same thing, but they will publish their ideas for an audience, and will also be able to provide and use peer feedback to enhance and tighten up their thinking. This is relevant to any curriculum area. Of course it is dependent on schools being able to access any social media, but rather than thinking about what is impossible, perhaps we could start thinking about what is possible and lobbying for change.
