Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Medical education and online tools | Scoop.it

Why Use Scoopit?

At the end of the day, you’re “doing” a lot actually simply by using a technology like scoopit. You’re modeling the proper use of social media, can help students understand writing for an audience, keywords and vocabulary understanding (and the aforementioned audience awareness), exploration and gathering of online resources, image and element impact, collaboration and community environments.

Welcome to Medical Education and Online Tools!

Welcome to Medical Education and Online Tools! | Medical education and online tools | Scoop.it

I am a senior lecturer and consultant in medical biochemistry and metabolic medicine in Cardiff, and have a growing interest in the use of technology in medical education. Here I have curated a variety of web-based tools that can be used for educational purposes, along with websites that support their use and provide guidance for clinical teachers and students in how to use them. It can be time consuming introducing new approaches into our practice, but hopefully this webpage will make the process of finding and using the right one easier.

 

You can find information about the Department of Medical Biochemistry in Cardiff University from the link here, which includes a link to my personal profile.

Each of the posts have been reviewed, and so should contain good, useful, and interesting information. If any of them don't please let me know!

The content is searchable - click on the "Filter" button above and enter your search terms.

If you want updates, you can register on Scoop.it and click on the blue "Follow" button at the top right. You can also follow me on Twitter @DuncanMedBio where I will also be sharing posts.

Technology in (Medical) Education: Tools for Leveraging Open Education Resources

Technology in (Medical) Education: Tools for Leveraging Open Education Resources | Medical education and online tools | Scoop.it

We are experiencing the democratization of education.  There are numerous free and open resources for learning on the Web:

Khan AcademyYouTube UniversityTEDTalks While these sites have terrific videos, they have a limitation inherent to such content; they tend to be linear and difficult to change once published.  In order for them to be more useful to students, the teacher often may want some control over the content so she is not stuck with what the creator of the video created or intended.She may want to use only a part of the content of the video, and then link it to another part of another videoShe may want to add some questions or additional content to the videoShe may want her students to create a project that is like a collage - containing parts of videos they find and stitch together.The good news is that there are now many services that are popping up to help

Innovations in Education - Students as Curators: Moving Towards Personalized Learning

Duncan Cole's insight:

This is a thought provoking post on student curation, with a helpful conceptualisation of the differences between directive and discovery learning.  Curation tools certainly have the potential to support student research, and they also promote sharing and collaboration.  The idea that the "textbook" of the future might be essentially a curation platform is also an interesting one.  It seems to me that the ideas put forward are more like a digital notebook but possibly with more sharing features, or perhaps a wiki if many students can contribute content.  It is an approach we could explore further in higher education, but as with all such ideas we will still need to consider where such approaches would be best used, if at all.

Barbara Bray's curator insight, May 2, 2013 12:44 AM

This quote by Mary Beth Hertz in this article where learners can personalize their learning as curators. 

I imagine a techbook looking like a science notebook or journal. It would be a place where students can take notes, pin articles and videos, record experiments and discussions or lectures, organize data tied to these experiences sketch out ideas in words and pictures, and send and receive emails or other messages.

What Makes A Great Curator Great?

What Makes A Great Curator Great? | Medical education and online tools | Scoop.it

This piece was brilliantly written by my fellow curator, Robin Good for those of you who haven't read this.

Beth Kanter has added some very valuable insights so I am reposting this. I might also add that Beth Kanter is an example of what Robin refers to as a great curator. When you go to her blog, you will see that she consistently produces value for her readers by following what Robin suggests makes someone great.

I agree with Beth that Giuseppe Mauriello is also a trusted source and provides value for his readers.

******************************

Sorry my commentary is so long but this was so thought provoking, I just couldn't help myself:-)

The headline draws you in and the material more than delivers on that promise. What makes a great curator is clearly demonstrated in this piece. Bravo Robin!

I'm not going to repost what Robin has said but add my own comments, just as if I were in a conversation with him.

In Robin's own words - A great curator does the following:

"Optimizes, Edits, Formats, Selects, Excerpts, Writes, Classifies, Links, Personalizes, Vets, Credits, Filters, Taps, Suggests, Searches, Scouts, Hacks Filters and Searches, Is Transparent, Recommends, Crowdsources"

As you read this article, pay attention to how he has done all the above. He creates a standard, he gives you some criteria so you can understand what makes someone great and what makes someone no so great.

****He is responding to an article he read in Forbes about curation which talks about the importance of keywords. Robin stresses the importance of "human curation" adding your personal touch and bringing added value to what you're curating and not trying to fit what you're saying into keywords that will draw traffic from the search engines.

These are my comments..........

**** Curation is new and is evolving. Water rises to its own level. The people who know why they're curating, who their audience is, how they consume information and what they need, and then act on this, will become great trusted sources.

Some people just want information. Others want to engage by adding comments or another layer of context. There's a rhythm to this and it takes time to find the right balance.

I think a great curator is a good listener and a keen observer who selects content that "speaks to the audience's listening". Paying attention to this and fine tuning your approach takes a lot of work but it's worth it. I'm inserting a direct quote from Robin:

"One point: I believe that curators, as I see them, should rarely if ever be driven by analytics data or statistics but to their personal experience and viewpoint. Their goal is not in fact to go after the broadest and most numerous audience but have the humbleness and vision to serve a very specific need and tribe."

If you're passionate and knowledgable about the topic you're curating, and you are committed to serving your readers, you will be great.

In business you have to have a unique sales proposition. Adding context to what you curate will set you apart from others and make you great. This is your place to contribute something new, perhaps you disagree with what was said and you bring a new perspective. Anything you can do to expand the piece and add dimension to it is valuable to others.

Robin produced this video in 2009 with Gerd Leonhard, a highly respected media futurist. It is excellent. The title speaks for itself: "The Relevance Of Context In Content Curation" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDo6YrJKaoM.

There is also another piece "Context Not Content is King" by Arnold Waldstein I posted this some time ago. It is very relevant today and hopefully sheds more light on what will set you apart from people who are just aggregating links.

Last but not least......

Robin also has a view point and invites us into a conversation when he discusses the scoring system which you will see when you read the article. It makes me want to respond, it's a two way dialogue between him and me, he's not just talking at me by reposting content without adding anything else.

I happen to agree with him about this but that's a whole other discussion.

Duncan Cole's insight:
If you are looking for some good advice and insight into how to develop into a great content curator, this is a great article from a few years ago from Robin Good. The additional insight from other curators adds another dimension, and I would suggest looking at this in some detail. It is clearly more effort to curate well, but then high quality work usually does.

Beth Kanter's comment, November 6, 2011 11:16 AM
Robin: Your point about using metrics and data .. I think what you are saying is that we should be "data-informed" - not data driven. That we don't just look at data to make decisions- but we bring our whole wisdom and knowledge and point of view to it .. http://www.bethkanter.org/curiosity-driven/

Excellent collection of virtual patients - these are clinical cases students can work through either in a linear fashion or via branching scenarios, which allow them to develop and test their clinical reasoning and decision-making skills. This could be applied to many other disciplines where decisions need to be made and thinking trained. Resources such as these usually work well when running alongside real-world training so that students can see the relevance of the material.
