Wow!  "The teacher and student jointly select the subject matter that is to be worked with in the classroom. They are equal in this process, just as they are in their subsequent efforts to process the subject matter and produce common knowledge within the field."


Great idea.

Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections [ACTIVITY] - The Tempered Radical

Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections [ACTIVITY] - The Tempered Radical | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it

While there are a ton of essential skills that today's students need in order to succeed in tomorrow's world, learning to efficiently manage -- and to evaluate the reliability of -- the information that they stumble across online HAS to land somewhere near the top of the "Muy Importante" list.

Which is why I had a few of my students experimenting with Scoop.it this week:
..
Specifically, they put together this collection of resources spotlighting the range of perspectives people have on New York City's decision to ban the sale of sugary drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces.

Designed to give users the chance to create curated collections of resources on topics that they are interested in, Scoop.it is a wicked mashup of digital goodness - part feed reader, part blogging tool, and part social bookmarking service.
...
Basically, Scoop.it can become a one-stop shop for (1). teaching kids to search, (2). giving kids chances to manage information, to evaluate sources and to build collections and (3). allowing kids to easily publish content on topics that they care about.
