Lecture Search

FindLectures.com is a curated search engine for quality online lectures, interviews, documentaries, and historically significant speeches.

The video list can be navigated with a deep topic taxonomy, which allows the discovery of interesting niche topics.

Videos are ranked using over a dozen quality measures, so that you can spend time learning, not looking.

Ranking and inclusion are affected by topic variety and novelty, length, audio quality, and speaker presentation style.

Other factors include the speaker having a unique background and material being the appropriate difficulty level for being a standalone content aimed at an educated audience.

To Boost Higher-Order Thinking, Try Curation | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU

To Boost Higher-Order Thinking, Try Curation | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU | SearchTools | Scoop.it
Higher-level thinking has been a core value of educators for decades. We learned about it in college. We hear about it in PD. We’re even evaluated on whether we’re cultivating it in our classrooms

 

In an educational setting, curation has a ton of potential as an academic task. Sure, we’re used to assigning research projects, where students have to gather resources, pull out information, and synthesize that information into a cohesive piece of informational or argumentative writing. This kind of work is challenging and important, and it should remain as a core assignment throughout school, but how often do we make the collection of resources itself a stand-alone assignment?

 

That’s what I’m proposing we do. Curation projects have the potential to put our students to work at three different levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy:

 

Understand, where we exemplify and classify informationAnalyze, where we distinguish relevant from irrelevant information and organize it in a way that makes senseEvaluate, where we judge the quality of an item based on a set of criteria

 

If we go beyond Bloom’s and consider the Framework for 21st Century Learning put out by the Partnership for 21st Century Learning, we’ll see that critical thinking is one of the 4C’s listed as an essential skill for students in the modern age (along with communication, creativity, and collaboration) and a well-designed curation project requires a ton of critical thinking.

This is a bit of inception with an article on the benefits of curation, curated into a collection on Scoop It. This article discusses the way that curation can enhance higher order thinking by allowing students understand, analyze and evaluate content matter as they curate it. It gives examples of tasks as well as way to present the information. It is a great resource for planning activities to cultivate higher order thinking.
