Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, February 15, 2015 1:54 PM

We'd think know what they need to know about learning. But teachers seek professional development for reasons other than hanging out with their bffs. They want to refresh their learning about learning, to learn new strategies, to learn about new research, and to have their instincts affirmed. These fundamentals do much of that.

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, February 18, 2015 8:16 AM

The fundamentals listed in this article are easy to do. I suggest trying to incorporate 1 or 2 a month Into your teaching.

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, April 1, 2015 11:04 PM

After reading through all 20 fundamentals, it's hard to pick a favorite.  They are all good!  I suggest taking one each day and reflecting on how you use it in your teaching.  If you find you are not using it, find a way to do so.  Try it for a week before going on to the next one.

Storytelling isn't about words, really. All trained storytellers know that the storyteller's job is to feed images to audiences. Image riding or image crafting, whatever you call it -- when we use words we are image writing.


Images are powerful, so it's no surprise visual storytelling is a hot topic. As this quick post shares, retention after 3 days for a text and a picture is 65%. Text and audio only? 10%


The next part of the post shares graphic facilitator Dan Roam's rules for what images to share based on the type of information you want to convey. Yeah! The complex is made simple :)


I also really like that this post is actually based on real research -- that's cited. So we know this is real.


CAVEAT: This post is about sharing information -- storifying information, in other words. I still -- after many years -- vividly remember stories I've heard from all kinds of storytellers (professional and not) and never a picture was shared. Yet those images/stories conveyed orally stick with me today.


So don't go thinking that every time you share a story, you have to show a picture or use PowerPoint. Not true. Except on the web.


So when the medium calls for images to accompany your stories -- use the visuals in this post to guide you.

"Models, like myths and metaphors, help us to make sense of our world. Whether derived from whim or from serious research, a model offers its user a means of comprehending an otherwise incomprehensible problem. An instructional design model gives structure and meaning to an I.D. problem, enabling the would-be designer to negotiate her design task with a semblance of conscious understanding. Models help us to visualize the problem, to break it down into discrete, manageable units. The value of a specific model is determined within the context of use. Like any other instrument, a model assumes a specific intention of its user. A model should be judged by how it mediates the designer's intention, how well it can share a work load, and how effectively it shifts focus away from itself toward the object of the design activity." -Martin Ryder, University of Colorado. - See more at: http://www.instructionaldesigncentral.com/htm/IDC_instructionaldesignmodels.htm#sthash.UxA0n2EZ.dpuf

Resources for the first day of teaching | Center for Research on Learning and Teaching | Online Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

What are effective ways to get to know my students and create a positive learning environment from the very beginning of the term? How can I pique students' curiosity about the course material? How can I set student expectations for active engagement in class?

 

These are common questions as teachers prepare for the first days of class, an important time for setting the tone for what is to come in the term. CRLT links to many resources that can help faculty and GSIs think carefully about getting the most out of the first days. These include research on why classroom rapport is useful for student learning, and specific strategies for building relationships and communities in the early days and weeks of a course. Other resources provide suggestions for introducing course material and communicating expectations.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 14, 2014 10:02 AM

Business storytelling can be as simple or complex as you want to make it. This article borders more on the complex side because it talks more about how to use storytelling as an ongoing strategy than a one-off activity.


The article by Demian Farnworth for Copyblogger focuses on creating a content strategy using narrative structure to generate an ongoing brand narrative. But wait! If you are a corporate executive, this idea applies to you too!!


Anyone in business or an executive can take the process outlined here and use it to map the stories you want to tell -- in a way that generates a consistent voice, image, vision, and brand.


What I particularly like is the attention paid to creating a visual storyboard. Storytelling is all about conveying images, not information. So the practice of visual planning and storyboarding here is very valuable.


The only piece that's missing is listening for stories from your audience and incorporating those into your story mix. That builds greater loyalty.


Dig into this article and use the process here to upgrade the quality of your business storytelling.
