YES! YES! And again, YES! So, can we finally put to rest the non-issue of whether librarians are also technology experts?

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

Argument Curation: An Effective Approach To Develop Critical Thinking Among Students | ResearchSkills | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
Peg Becksvoort's insight:

Excellent synopsis and thinking about ways to turn research into the curation skill that students already are using in their lives. I particularly liked the statement about having a conversation with your content:  "By having a conversation with their resources, students found themselves thinking instead of repeating, synthesizing instead of summarizing."

With the emphasis on argumentative writing that is coming with the CCSS, students will be needing the fresh thinking approach that is written about here.

Well-written and makes exciting points that should give fresh thinking to teachers and librarians who work with students doing research. Loved the example that used Livebinders.
