I never would have realized all the ways that technology has really changed the classroom until this article. It changes a lot more than one would think.

SocialEdCon: What the Heck Do We Do with Social Media?

Social media is arguably the single most disruptive innovation in the history of industrialized civilization. It’s redefining how we engage with each other, how we do business, how we get our news, how we spend our free time and how we revolt against repressive regimes. It’s no wonder that people are terrified of it. And to that end, it’s not surprising that many educators find themselves in schools where social media is blocked -- and/or with draconian social media policies in place.

KF: An interesting book available under a reasonably new “copyfarleft” licensing arrangement. The book provides some useful insights into openness and peer/collaborative production strategies. It brings to mind the Cachalot book from Duke University where expertise is crowd-sourced, peer review is managed and distribution is open-source. These new models of content creation and distribution are set to challenge the established (dis)order of publishing and distribution.

Bloom’s Revised Digital Taxonomy Wheel & the Knowledge Dimension | Eductechalogy | Rewriting the world | Scoop.it

I have produced an interactive Bloom’s revised digital taxonomy wheel and the almost overlapping knowledge Dimensions. Bloom’s taxonomy has been used extensively in the education sector. The 2001 update of Bloom’s taxonomy for the 21century  is depicted in this interactive wheel. Almost overlapping, are the four knowledge domains.

Leadership Development and Transformational Change | Rethinking Complexity | Rewriting the world | Scoop.it

Even though the study of transformational change in organizations has become a popular research topic in the fields of management and leadership studies, it appears that only one in three change initiatives has been deemed successful. Four basic conditions for large transformation to take place in an organization:A compelling story,Role modeling,Reinforcing mechanisms, andCapability building. In the seven stage developmental framework for leaders.. Torbert and his associates asserted that only in the last three of the seven stages of leadership development do individuals have enough reflective meaning-making to successfully drive transformational change.

Understanding the Value of Curation for Education: Nancy White

Understanding the Value of Curation for Education: Nancy White | Rewriting the world | Scoop.it

Robin Good: What does curation mean from an educational viewpoint? And what is the key difference between "collecting" and "curating".

Nancy White (@NancyW), a 21st Century Learning & Innovation Specialist and the author of Innovations in Education blog, has written an excellent article, dissecting the key characterizing traits of curation, as a valuable resource to create and share knowledge. 

 

She truly distills some key traits of curation in a way that is clear and comprehensible to anyone.

 

She writes: "The first thing I realized is that in order to have value-added benefits to curating information, the collector needs to move beyond just classifying the objects under a certain theme to deeper thinking through a) synthesis and b) evaluation of the collected items.

 

How are they connected?"

 

Excellent definition. 

 

And then she also frames perfectly the relevance of "context" for any meaningful curation project by writing: "I believe when we curate, organization moves beyond thematic to contextual – as we start to build knowledge and understanding with each new resource that we curate.

 

Themes have a common unifying element – but don’t necessarily explain the “why.”

 

Theme supports a central idea – Context allows the learner to determine why that idea (or in this case, resource) is important.

 

So, as collecting progresses into curating, context becomes essential to determine what to keep, and what to discard."

 

But there's a lot more insight distilled in this article as Nancy captures with elegance the difference between collecting for a personal interest and curating for a specific audience. 

 

She finally steals my full endorsement for this article by discretely inquirying how great a value it would be to allow students to "curate" the domains of interest they need to master.

 

Excellent. Highly recommended. 9/10
