Re-envisioning Modern Pedagogy: Educators as Curators

Corinne Weisgerber (an Associate Prof. of Communication at St. Edward's University that we were lucky to interview recently) gave this presentation at SXSWedu on March 6, 2012. It's of course targetting educators - natural-born curators. But a lot of what's in that presentation is generic enough so it's interesting to read.

 

Corinne comes back on 8 steps that she defined as essential for curators and describes how they intereact together to form a complete cycle.

 

It's also interesting to note how good a fit there is betwwen curation and education; something we've felt for quite some time at Scoop.it by seeing a lot of educators using the platform.

Creative Mornings: Maria Popova on Content Curation

Creative Mornings: Maria Popova on Content Curation | Rationale | Scoop.it

This sketchnote was suggested to me by Dean Meyers.

 

Maria Popova, creator, blogger and curator of www.brainpickings.org, talks about the creative process, how old ideas are used to fuel new stories, ideas and designs, and the creative process which relies on curation.

 

Don't you also feel curation is part of the creative process?

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project | Rationale | Scoop.it

"Over the last couple of years, I’ve come to think of my role as a teacher as that of a curator of ideas" says Corinne Weisgerber who teaches Social Media and Communication at St Edwards Unniversity in Austin, TX (if you haven't yet, check out her great prez here).

 

As she explained in this post, the Curation Project was about getting her students "to set up a network of online mentors using social media tools" and "to identify experts in their field and connect with them in order to build a personal learning network (PLN)." 

 

The idea behing the PNL is to help them discover valuable information through social search that they wouldn't have discovered otherwise.

 

Interesting project and read.

 

And great work by the students who used various curation platforms for the project, including Storify and Scoop.it (links in the post)

On her blog, Nancy White did a great job detailing the various levels at which Curation adds value. And how it differs from collecting.

 

A Learning & Innovation specialist, she also greatly outlines how curation and education are a great fit.

Digital Publishing: Curation vs Collection vs Experience

Digital Publishing: Curation vs Collection vs Experience | Rationale | Scoop.it

Curation and editing is about considering the primary goals of your audience and customers. It is about stripping away all the "nice to haves" to end up with only the "need to haves."
