Ten Reflective Questions to Ask at the End of Class - Brilliant or Insane

Ten Reflective Questions to Ask at the End of Class - Brilliant or Insane | Metawriting | Scoop.it
How deep is your commitment to reflective practice?

Do you maintain a reflective journal? Do you blog? Do you capture and archive your reflections in a different space?

Do you consistently reserve a bit of time for your own reflective work? Do you help the learners you serve do the same?

I began creating dedicated time and space for reflection toward the end of my classroom teaching career, and the practice has followed me through my work at the WNY Young Writer’s Studio. I’ve found that it can take very little time and yet, the return on our investment has always been significant.

Darrington Lee's curator insight, March 7, 9:36 PM

I feel that it is generally important to reflect on one self after taking a lesson, this ensures we are learning on the right track and doesn't "fall off" the topic. Reflection keep us calm and collected, so we can stand back straight up even after a failure to accomplish something. This gives us a never ending space to improve and beyond than just learning, but also to persevere, take responsibility in one's learning and also to excel in things we do.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, March 9, 1:54 PM

Reflection...don't leave class without it!

How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic]

How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic] | Metawriting | Scoop.it
Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help.

Curate or Die: Why You Must Curate Content in 2015

Curate or Die: Why You Must Curate Content in 2015 | Metawriting | Scoop.it
The key to success in a myriad of web content that may drown us in 2015 is to curate content. The whys and hows are explained in-depth inside this article.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, January 24, 3:23 AM

It's interesting to see that content curation is evolving from an opportunity to a necessity as communication shifts from traditional methods (PR, advertising, old-style SEO...) to new ones (content marketing, inbound marketing, social media...). In this new world of communication many things have changed and professionals or companies who want to get heard need to consider this question:


Do people listen to you because they have to or because they want to?


As my friend Steve Rosenbaum, author of Curation Nation, puts it in his latest book, Curate This, we can't rely anymore on captive audiences. Consumers filter out spammy messages which is why, to be heard, we have to curate or die.

Marta Torán's curator insight, January 26, 3:46 PM

La curación de contenidos, casi un imperativo si queremos sobrevivir a la información. Muy bueno.

Gianfranco Marini's curator insight, February 13, 12:34 PM

Un intervento di Robin Good comparso su Scoop.it l'11/2/15 e che smonta alcuni "miti" e "false rappresentazioni" della Content Curation che circolano spesso in rete.

 

Questi in sintesi i miti:

# La Content Curation non è un modo per lavorare meno, produrre più contenuti e acquisire facilmente visibilità

# non si tratta nemmeno di aggiungere qualche riga a un contenuto o produrre una serie di link

 

Robin Good elenca poi in 8 punti in che cosa consiste l'autentico "lavoro del curatore". Il testo è in inglese ma facilmente comprensibile.

 

Questo breve intervento è di notevole interesse per:

# rettificare il paradigma teorico che sta coagulandosi attorno alla Content Curation

# calibrare la propria attività di curatori sul "valore aggiunto" che occorre produrre nella cura dei contenuti

# Comprendere la reale portata della Curation che può essere una delle strategie vincenti se non la si intende e pratica unicamente come attività di produrre "raccolte di link" ma

# attività di "produzione di senso" nel caos entropico del Web

# Proprio coltivare questo aspetto della Curation né evidenzia la valenza didattica in quanto attività di "interpretazione", "Ermeneutica del Web"

Kate Reid's curator insight, February 18, 5:19 PM

Robin Good  offers sage advice for school librarians as we content curate.
