Innovations in Education - Understanding Content Curation

Innovations in Education - Understanding Content Curation | On education | Scoop.it

by Nancy White

 

"I manage a grant project in my district designed to assure students acquire “21st century skills” A current strategy for this is using backwards design, formative assessments of 21st century skills, and “blended-learning.” New for next school year: teachers are being asked to “curate resources” to accompany the backwards-planned, inquiry-based units of instruction.  I had my own ideas on what curating meant at the time I was asked to design professional development for teachers in the project – but realized very quickly that this term has taken on a life of its own, in uses by not just educators, but marketers.  A quick Google search on “content curation” turns up 1,240,000 results. Remove terms like “marketing”, “business”, “influence”, “customer”, and “startup” and the results are pared down to about 45,400 hits. Within this subset of information about curating content, definitions of curating seem to have no boundaries – collecting – aggregating – curating –what exactly is the difference?  Or is there a difference?

"This curiosity led to further questions:  Why curate?  What is the value of curating for teachers? Really –what is the benefit of curating in terms of the learning goals – enduring understandings and 21st century skills for our students?"

"Blended learning. Digital literacy. Mobile learning. Game-based learning. When these top educational trends came onto the scene, they sparked a learning revolution. That revolution continued into 2014, but if there was one theme to come out of the top educational summits this year, it was this: smarter use. We take a look at exactly what that means below."

Innovation Excellence | 25 Things Skilled Learners Do Differently | On education | Scoop.it

by Sarah Briggs

 

"We also know that people who think about their own learning, make a habit of asking questions, use what they’ve learned, teach what they’ve learned to others, and enjoy the learning process on an intrinsic level all become better learners.

"The good news is, these are all strategies and habits that can be adopted through practice. Why some of us master them earlier than others is another topic, one that may have something to do with parenting, environment, and even genetics. But the point is, we’re all capable. The smartest, most successful people in the world wouldn’t be where they are today if they weren’t skilled learners. So let’s examine which strategies we should be perfecting and how they can serve us in the long run."

Stephen Dale's curator insight, October 19, 6:21 AM

A very useful article that recognises that there is a skill (or at least a process) involved to achieve effective learning, and that we can learn this skill, i.e. learn to learn. As the article explains: "The smartest, most successful people in the world wouldn’t be where they are today if they weren’t skilled learners" It goes on to examine which learning strategies we should be perfecting and how they can serve us in the long run.

Fixed vs. Growth: The Two Basic Mindsets That Shape Our Lives ~ Brain Pickings

Fixed vs. Growth: The Two Basic Mindsets That Shape Our Lives ~ Brain Pickings | On education | Scoop.it

by Maria Popova

 

"One of the most basic beliefs we carry about ourselves, Dweck found in her research, has to do with how we view and inhabit what we consider to be our personality. A “fixed mindset” assumes that our character, intelligence, and creative ability are static givens which we can’t change in any meaningful way, and success is the affirmation of that inherent intelligence, an assessment of how those givens measure up against an equally fixed standard; striving for success and avoiding failure at all costs become a way of maintaining the sense of being smart or skilled. A “growth mindset,” on the other hand, thrives on challenge and sees failure not as evidence of unintelligence but as a heartening springboard for growth and for stretching our existing abilities. Out of these two mindsets, which we manifest from a very early age, springs a great deal of our behavior, our relationship with success and failure in both professional and personal contexts, and ultimately our capacity for happiness."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

An excellent essay/review that summarizes and praises Carol Dweck's book Mindset. If you haven't read the book, this is a great way to find out quickly what all the excitement is about.

Don't miss this key paper on educational assessment! 


There is a growing consensus that college and career readiness depends on not just academic knowledge and skills but on a wide range of social and developmental competencies, as well—such as the ability to monitor one’s own learning, persist at challenging tasks, solve complex problems, set realistic goals, and communicate effectively in many kinds of settings.


This is the first in Students at the Center’s new Deeper Learning Research Series—David T. Conley, well-known for his influential research on college readiness, argues that the time is ripe for a major shift in educational assessment.

Dean Mantz's curator insight, October 20, 2:23 PM

The Walker Learning Approach has been developed over twenty years using an action research model. The Walker Learning Approach is the first pedagogy to be designed for Australian schools, successfully providing teaching and learning that
  • personalizes and engages learners in active learning alongside explicit and formalized instruction.
  • is culturally and developmentally appropriate across all demographic regions of the country, from remote indigenous communities to elite independent schools.

Why Some Schools Are Selling All Their iPads ~ The Atlantic

Why Some Schools Are Selling All Their iPads ~ The Atlantic | On education | Scoop.it

by Meghan Murphy

 

"For an entire school year Hillsborough, New Jersey, educators undertook an experiment, asking: Is the iPad really the best device for interactive learning?

"It’s a question that has been on many minds since 2010, when Apple released the iPad and schools began experimenting with it. The devices came along at a time when many school reformers were advocating to replace textbooks with online curricula and add creative apps to lessons. Some teachers welcomed the shift, which allowed their students to replace old poster-board presentations with narrated screencasts and review teacher-produced video lessons at any time.

"Four years later, however, it's still unclear whether the iPad is the device best suited to the classroom. The market for educational technology is huge and competitive: During 2014, American K-12 schools will spend an estimated $9.94 billion on educational technology, an increase of 2.5 percent over last year, according to Joseph Morris, director of market intelligence at the Center for Digital Education. On average, he said, schools spend about a third of their technology budgets on computer hardware."
