Connecting, Curating and Changing | NWP Digital Is | Library instruction and Information literacy | Scoop.it

At Rose High School, located in eastern North Carolina and populated by students on extreme ends of the socioeconomic spectrum, we have students who are passionate and active about everything from establishing a witty presence on social media to saving orphans in Darfur, but these are often extracurricular activities that don't show up in the actual classroom. Students might spend hours posting selfies on Facebook or hours planning a benefit concert, but when they feel like they have to put on their academic persona, they tend to forget those parts of themselves.


I wanted students to be able to funnel their interests into a more authentic academic experience so that they could learn about what they want to learn about and become empowered as researchers, both casually and formally. To do that, I needed to remix their idea of what research is, transform it from something boring and arbitrary into something rich and useful. When I don't know something, I look it up. I, like most of my students, have a smartphone that puts a world of information at my fingertips, and most of the time, I remember to use it. If I see a comic on The Oatmeal about mantis shrimp, and I want to know if such a creature actually exists, I will look it up on the selfsame iPhone on which I viewed the comic.  I feel empowered to research any topic I want, no matter how trivial or how important. My students typically don't feel that sense of empowerment as researchers, as knowledge gatherers.

This a great list, but, perfect?  I don't know about that :)  Stories aren't a magic bullet. However, applying these elements and telling the right story+right time+right audience... can make an emotional connection with your audience that impacts your business.

#infolitpro: Profiles for the Information Literacy Professional | Library instruction and Information literacy | Scoop.it

There are growing numbers of library and information sector posts which have the term “information literacy” in the job title, or which have information literacy development as a key responsibility.

The IFLA Information Literacy Section has set up a project which aims to develop profiles for Information Literacy Professionals (ILPs), with input from library and information professionals in different sectors and in different countries...

Libraries to become community publishing portals

Libraries to become community publishing portals | Library instruction and Information literacy | Scoop.it

With the rise of ebooks, public libraries are at a crossroads. Some book publishers, fearful that library ebook lending will cannibalize retail sales of books, are reluctant to supply ebooks to libraries at the very time that library patrons are clamoring for greater access to such materials.

The 6 Types Of Assessments (And How They're Changing) - Edudemic | Library instruction and Information literacy | Scoop.it

Testing, especially any sort of standardized testing tends to get a bad rap. Teachers complain that they spend too much time teaching to a test. But assessments do have value, and an important place in our learning structure. By measuring what students are learning, we as teachers can look at how we are approaching different subjects, materials, and even different students. The handy infographic takes a look at different types of assessments and their attributes and questions. Keep reading to learn more.

Argument Curation: An Effective Approach To Develop Critical Thinking Among Students

Argument Curation: An Effective Approach To Develop Critical Thinking Among Students | Library instruction and Information literacy | Scoop.it

Gaby Vaca's insight:
Robin Good's insight:

 

Ashley Hutchinson has an excellent article on the NWP site, illustrating how content curation can be effectively used to move students from passively memorizing information that they have no interest into, to become active investigators of a topic to uncover its different facets and critical evaluators of the same in light of their own values. 


Her key goal was to find a way to make "research" something fun to do for her students. 


"I wanted students to be able to funnel their interests into a more authentic academic experience so that they could learn about what they want to learn about and become empowered as researchers, both casually and formally. 


To do that, I needed to remix their idea of what research is, transform it from something boring and arbitrary into something rich and useful.


When I don't know something, I look it up...  So I called this an "argument curation" project, and not just to sound fancy; they were actually identifying arguments and curating resources that helped inform those arguments." 


The beauty of this approach is that students need to check and research the different aspects of a story, to see it through and to develop their own viewpoint relative to it.  And here is the a good example of how this can be achieved: 


"...They had to find the resources and think carefullyabout what the resources were actually saying, so that their collections contained diverse opinions and ways of expressing them. 


...On their websites, they described the general topic, created page for five different arguments and gave a breakdown of why people are debating those topics. 


Then they had to set out to find resources, but not just any resources, resources that had different perspectives. Even those that were in contention with their own. 


After gathering at least three resources on five different argument topics within their area of interest, the studentssummarized the perspectives they saw in the diverse resources that they found. 


After being exposed to all of these resources and having some time to think, they themselves entered into the conversation by giving their opinion and referencing the sources that helped inform their opinion. 


By having a conversation with their resources, students found themselves **thinking** instead of repeating, synthesizing instead of summarizing."

  

I don't want to spoil any further your reading of the original which includes some inspiring info about the effects that such an approach can have on students and on their ability to look at the information that they are exposed to.  


Excellent resource for educators considering curation in their program.   


Insightful. Useful. 9/10
