Content Curation, in its most simplest terms, is the act of gathering related, targeted pieces of content and sharing it. Like an art curator, a Content Curator is a taste maker—an influencer—and has authority in a given topic.

A Lancaster University student looks at the pros and cons of Wikipedia in the Guardian. Includes extracts from interviews with two Lancaster academics.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's comment, May 16, 2013 2:40 AM
I don't think anyone minds students starting with Wikipedia but as with any encyclopedia it should only be your starting point. Where are your research skills if that is all you look at? Likewise it would not be good enough if you chose just one academic source, a variety is needed.
Jennifer Creese's curator insight, March 27, 2014 9:40 PM

Interesting to have a viewpoint from a student (although if they're writing for The Guardian maybe not your average student so much!)

Connecting the Classroom and the Library: How One School Uses Web-Based Library Projects to Build Information-Literacy Skills | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

The first step we took in 1999 was to stop teaching isolated library skills classes. We began reinforcing information-literacy skills through class projects. At that time, we employed traditional strategies, including paper pathfinders and guided lab sessions.

Muito bom o artigo, e uma ótima ferramenta para pesquisa de alunos e professores, para melhorar seu desempenho e utilizar melhor esta ferramenta tão presente no nosso dia a dia que é a internet, a importância da leitura não é muito apreciada por muitas pessoas, que já se acostumaram com a cultura da informação mastigada que a TV e a internet consolidaram em nosso país.

Se o problema é tempo, os bookmarks estão sempre oferecendo a opção read later, e com o apresentado no artigo acima, ainda resume todo o texto para os mais apressadinhos, vale a pena conferir e utilizar.

When doing homework, many students turn to the same websites as they do when they're surfing the web under other circumstances.

 

Four of the top ten most-cited websites on Easybib, a site used to create more than 500 million citations, are user-generated sites like Wikipedia and YouTube.

Does it matter that not all students who go to libraries read the books? I wonder if we have statistics about those who do and those who don't? I would also like to hear about those students who go to the library only for the wifi and accidentally find a book they didn't even k ow they wanted......

You’ve probably heard them: problem-based learning, project-based learning and inquiry-based learning. Is there a difference? How will you know which one to do in your classroom?"
