To be honest, all those people that want to be rock stars. From startups to content curators. Forget it! You're not!
Karen du Toit's curator insight, February 12, 2014 8:15 AM

Great tips!

Hugo Callens's curator insight, April 25, 2014 3:56 AM

Content curation is het systematisch verzamelen, selecteren en commentariëren van allerlei content die je op het web vindt met betrekking tot een topic die voor jou,  je organisatie en je publiek relevant is.

Het is o.a. een manier om je positie als "expert" op een bepaald gebied te versterken, om zelf op de hoogte te blijven van de ontwikkelingen in je vakgebied en om tegelijk  je publiek "op te voeden".

In deze presentatie vind je 10 praktische tips om dat proces vorm te geven.

Smart Reading Strategies Students Should Develop ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Smart Reading Strategies Students Should Develop ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
“ Smart reading is a skill that students develop through using a set of robust strategies in their reading and analyzing of texts. I am not talking here about critical reading or close reading (through both of these types can be part of smart reading), smart reading is about knowing what to read, when to read , and how to read it. It is a holistic kind of practice that integrates other key reading skills such as skimming and scanning. In this wonderful visual from Learning Commons are featured some useful strategies students can use to improve their reading competencies towards becoming better and smart readers. These strategies include:”

Step by Step: Designing Personalized Learning Experiences For Students - Mind/Shift

Step by Step: Designing Personalized Learning Experiences For Students - Mind/Shift | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
The phrase “personalized learning” gets tossed around a lot in education circles. Sometimes it’s used in the context of educational technology tools that offer lessons keyed to the academic level of individual students. Other times it’s referring to the personal touch of a teacher getting to know a student, learning about their interests and tailoring lessons to meet both their needs and their passion areas. As with most education jargon, the phrase isn’t fixed, but it usually connects to the idea that not all students need the same thing at the same time. It implies choice, multiple pathways to learning, many ways to demonstrate competency and resists the notion that all students learn the same way.

Educator Mia MacMeekin has put together a clear infographic highlighting some of the ways teachers design “personalized” curriculum.

Via John Evans
Elizabeth Hutchinson's insight:

An interesting look at how students learn. Can we help them personalise their learning. I think so.
