Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | Smart learning | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

Astrocytes (Glial Cells of the Brain) Boost Learning

Human brain cell transplants make mice smarter.

 

What makes the human brain so much more intelligent than the brain of animals? When neuroscientist Marian Diamond of UC Berkeley examined tissue from Albert Einstein's brain for clues to his genius she could find no differences in the size or number of neurons in his cerebral cortex, but she counted an unusually high number of non-neuronal cells (called glia) in his brain. This 1985 report was intriguing because glia support neurons in many ways, physically and physiologically, but they are incapable of generating electricity. Therefore glia were thought to have no role in information processing in the brain. In 2006 Argentinian neuroscientist Jeoge Colombo reported that in addition to having more of one type of glial cell called an astrocyte, the astrocytes in Einstein's cerebral cortex were larger and they had a more complex shape than age-matched controls. This was especially interesting in light of his 2004 study reporting that this type of colossal astrocyte was unique to primates. No other animals have such large astrocytes with long tendrils penetrating deeply through several layers of cerebral cortex. These findings about Einstein's brain are intriguing, but alone they prove nothing -- they are observations not conclusions. "It remains a difficult task to provide a link between [astrocytes and] genius," says Colombo, from the analysis of "a single, aged, postmortem brain," but still, these findings provoked expanded thinking about the possibility that information processing, cognition, and human intelligence could involve cells other than neurons. Now a team of neuroscientists has such proof. They grafted human astrocytes into the brain of mice and found that synaptic transmission, learning, and memory are enhanced beyond that of normal mice.
