Marco Bertolini's curator insight, June 22, 2013 4:10 AM

Elias Morling estime que les curateurs sont comme les "dumpster divers", ces militants qui fouillent les poubelles.  Et ils les appelle les "vrais influenceurs" car :

 

1. Les curateurs représentent un nouveau type de leadership tribal bottom up et peer-to-peer.

 

2. En tant que membres d'une tribu, les curateurs seront toujours plus "natives" que n'importe qui parlant de l'extérieur.

 

3. Au sein de la tribu, ils sont appréciés non seulement pour leurs compétences, mais aussi parce qu'ils entretiennent et développent leur propre culture.

 

Un article inspirant de http://www.linkedin.com/in/emorling que vous pouvez lire ici : http://tribaling.com/blog/2013/05/15/curators-and-tribal-currency/

 

Ness Crouch's curator insight, June 22, 2013 5:05 PM

Excellent article and video. Looking at the wonderful world of the internet and curation. The idea of curation of online content has become more and more inportant with the exponential growth of content on the world wide web. Being able to organise and manage all of the content is important.

 

Curation is about making good choices about what you share and putting it into a context for themselves and others. Being enthusiastic and thoughtful about what you choose is a way of showing what you are finding and sharing is signficant and worthwhile. 

 

Finding the most interesting and valuable things and sharing that is the key. What you want and what you are interested in is important but you also need to consider your audience.

How do teachers make informed decisions in relation to a balanced use of technology in the classroom? Where can new teachers become better informed about best practices for technology use in the classroom without becoming overwhelmed and discouraged by the overload of information?

KEN'S KEY TAKEAWAY:

In addition, studies have found that having students write for an "authentic" audience beyond just the teacher helps them feel motivated to do a better job, and plenty of online opportunities, including communicating with "sister classes" from around the world, can provide those venues, as well as offering exposure to different cultures.

Karin Gitchel's curator insight, January 23, 2013 8:49 PM

What does it mean to be an educator? How many different hats do you wear? This is an outstanding thought on what an educator is today: 

 

The Learner/The Collector/The Curator/The Alchemist/The Programmer/The Salesperson/The Convener/The Coordinator/The Designer/The Coach/The Agitator/The Facilitator/Tech Support/The Moderator/The Critic/The Lecturer/The Demonstrator/The Mentor/The Connector/The Theorizer/The Sharer/The Evaluator/The Bureaucrat

 

"And what I find as I offer more and more types and instances of learning, both online and in person, is that we can achieve much more efficient, effective and rewarding learning by organizing the educational system according to the sorts of educational services people might want and need, rather than by predefined collections of students assigned, almost randomly, to individual teachers. Rather than asking one person to perform every role, some of them very badly, for a given group of students, it makes more sense to ensure that these services are available where needed and to allocate them according to the needs of the students, the nature of the learning environment, and the type of learning being undertaken."
