Truly student-centered learning has a lot of support in high places in education, but it can’t happen without the right technology infrastructure to drive it. And the technology may be ready to deliver on its promise.

The Future of Journalism

The Future of Journalism | Social media and education | Scoop.it

I selected this piece by Ross Dawson because he is one of my trusted sources and he continues to shed light on the future of journalism. 

 

He sets the tone by stating:

 

"There are eight aspects of news that its audience will value, be prepared to pay for, and that will provide a viable financial foundation for quality journalism in the emerging media environment."

 

The article delves into each of these.  Here's what particularly caught my attention.

 

**Timeliness is becoming ever-more important in a world ravenous for immediacy.

 

**Investigative reporting will retain a central role in society. Increasingly this will involve data analysis, and often harnessing information and insights provided by many citizens.

 

**Insight, through adding context, analysis, and synthesis to news, is where some of the greatest value lies, particularly in business and political journalism.

 

**Those who can provide this insight, be they domain experts or journalists with the requisite breadth of experience, will always have a bright future.

 

**The skills required to present information, ideas and data in a visual and highly aesthetic format will shift far closer to the heart of what it is to be a journalist.

 

Ross also points out the trend towards personalized and local news delivery and suggests that journalists will need to understand how social curation works.  And for me, this is the key to the overlap between the established profession of journalism and the still developing discipline of content curation.

 

I see clear parallels between the two and believe these are at least partly demonstrated by the points I have chosen to quote and particularly the smaller portions I bolded.  I look forward to clear and growing collaborations between journalists and curators.  We have much to learn from each other.

When I go to full article link, the site says it must provide account and password to login. Does this content commercial or this site is private?

Social Media and Content Curation | Presentation on SlideShare

A good presentation deck by Qianxing Lu and Brian Moritz for their Social Media Theory and Practice assignment. 
In 30 slides there is a well laid-out synthesis of why a growing set of new curation start-ups have decided to focus on developing their own curation-filtering tool.

Simple, clear and well presented concepts.

Online Learning 2012: Six Issues That Refuse to Die

Online Learning 2012: Six Issues That Refuse to Die | Social media and education | Scoop.it

By Jim Shimabukuro
Editor

As we teeter on the brink of the new year, we're left with more questions than answers. In a way, that's a good thing, considering the makeshift nature of technology in higher education.

 

Issues discussed:

Issue #1: Can current leaders take higher education into the 21st century?

Issue #2: Are we past Web 2.0 yet?

Issue #3. Is the F2F vs. online debate over?

Issue #4. Is multimedia better than text?

Issue #5. Is synchronous better than asynchronous?

Issue #6. Is “net generation” a misnomer for today’s students?

Several prominent locations, people and historic artifacts will be linked to a mobile Wikipedia page that can be accessed by scanning QR codes with a smart phone. Residents of the city will also take part in the project, as Wikipedia is tapping the populace for articles about life in the city." Stephanie Beck
