Social technology for social learning: Voxer and ScoopIt

Social technology for social learning: Voxer and ScoopIt | social media and networks in medical education | Scoop.it

Put them together and you can see a progression from conversation to curation, a circle of social learning that lets us create meaning and share it back out into the community.

I believe that this type of approach, agile tech to support agile learning, is the future, far more so than big, dinosaur, legacy systems and approaches that tried to do everything. It’s about the mindset: creating, sharing, learning, with everything focussed on how we create meaning and what we do with it, out in the real world, not focussed on passwords, disclaimers, asynchronous messaging and single channel communication.

In the Social Age, it’s about the conversations.

I'm searching to see who is talking about the possibilities of using scoopit as a learning tool cause we are very interested in it at #cdfmed!

Curation: Beyond the Buzzword - Resources shared at #ASTDTK13 - David Kelly

Curation: Beyond the Buzzword - Resources shared at #ASTDTK13 - David Kelly | social media and networks in medical education | Scoop.it

Curation” is a term that is becoming more and more common in the learning industry. Unfortunately, many learning professionals do not understand what it is, let alone how to leverage it for their organizations. And yet it is a critical future competency for those in the field

AnneMarie Cunningham's insight:

In response to one of my last shares @fionaquigs tweeted that she had been at an event where educators wanted 'curation' black-listed as just the latest buzzword. They prefered the term collation. But I think curation is more than just collecting or collating resources. 

I searched for curation +buzzword and found this presentation. There are some really useful resources linked to here, and another typology of curation: aggregation, filtering, elevation, mash or match-ups, and timelines

Medicine has changed radically in the past 100 years, but medical education hasn't kept pace.
AnneMarie Cunningham's insight:

This was suggested to me by the Scoopit website. It's a good call. What is most interesting is the bit about Desai and Khan Academy:

"Desai, who earned a BA from UCLA at 18, a Harvard fellowship after med school and served as an infectious disease investigator at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is now exploring innovative ways to teach medicine at Khan Academy, a small non-profit whose mission is to improve education by providing it online for free “to anyone everywhere”!

 

I hadn't realised that Khan Academy had started producing so much content around basic sciences for #meded . Even more proof that curation is where are energies now need to be focussed.

Although directed at content marketing, these ideas translate into technical communications where users are trying to help each other find the best technical content. I totally agree that the fundamental way in which we communicate through content is shifting.

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | social media and networks in medical education | Scoop.it

Why Use Scoopit?

At the end of the day, you’re “doing” a lot actually simply by using a technology like scoopit. You’re modeling the proper use of social media, can help students understand writing for an audience, keywords and vocabulary understanding (and the aforementioned audience awareness), exploration and gathering of online resources, image and element impact, collaboration and community environments.

Innovations in Education - Students as Curators: Moving Towards Personalized Learning

Duncan Cole's curator insight, April 23, 2013 9:21 AM

This is a thought provoking post on student curation, with a helpful conceptualisation of the differences between directive and discovery learning.  Curation tools certainly have the potential to support student research, and they also promote sharing and collaboration.  The idea that the "textbook" of the future might be essentially a curation platform is also an interesting one.  It seems to me that the ideas put forward are more like a digital notebook but possibly with more sharing features, or perhaps a wiki if many students can contribute content.  It is an approach we could explore further in higher education, but as with all such ideas we will still need to consider where such approaches would be best used, if at all.

Barbara Bray's curator insight, May 2, 2013 12:44 AM

This quote by Mary Beth Hertz in this article where learners can personalize their learning as curators. 

I imagine a techbook looking like a science notebook or journal. It would be a place where students can take notes, pin articles and videos, record experiments and discussions or lectures, organize data tied to these experiences sketch out ideas in words and pictures, and send and receive emails or other messages.

Curation vs. Blogging: The Difference Is In The Focus

Curation vs. Blogging: The Difference Is In The Focus | social media and networks in medical education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If curation is all about finding and sharing great content, what's the difference with what so many bloggers have been doing until now?

The difference, according to Deanna Dahlsad at Kitsch-Slapped, is in the focus. While bloggers often cover just about anything that intercepts their online wanderings, curators are characterized by a strong focus on a specific topic.  

 

Here is a key passage from her article: "Many bloggers spend their time selecting what they consider the best of what other people have created on the web and post it at their own sites, just like a magazine or newspaper.

 

Or they provide a mix of this along with writing or otherwise creating their own content. Not to split hairs, but curation involves less creation and more searching and sifting; curation’s more a matter of focused filtering than it is writing.

 

Because content curation is expected to be based on such focused filtering, it begins far more based on topic selection.

 

This is much different from blogging, where bloggers are often advised to “just begin” and let their voice and interests accumulate over time to eventually reveal a primary theme.

 

...

 

Some collectors just collect what they like as they stumble into it. …Sometimes, collectors just keep piling up stuff, no matter what it is. Even if this isn’t hoarding, it’s not-so-much of a purposeful pursuit.

 

But professional curators, those who manage collections for museums or other organizations, and serious collectors, they maintain a specific focus.

 

And rather than stumbling into items, they continually seek for specific items.

 

The definition dictates the curation — and everything from funding to their continued employment is based on how well their collection meets the collection’s definition.

 

While blogging success may be thought of in many different ways, the success of content curation lies in how well you define, search/research, and stick to your subject."

 

Rightful. 8/10

Instructional design: from "packaging" to "scaffolding"

Instructional design: from "packaging" to "scaffolding" | social media and networks in medical education | Scoop.it

Jane Hart's Blog :In my recent posts, The changing role of L&D: from “packaging” to “scaffolding” plus “social capability building” and  Towards the Connected L&D Department I wrote about the need to move from a focus on “packaging” training to “scaffolding” learning,  and I said I would talk more about what “scaffolding” looks like. For me, this is the key way for workplace learning professionals to move the learning industry into the future. In this post I’m going to look at “instructional scaffolding” but in subsequent posts, I will consider “scaffolding performance support & team collaboration” in the workplace  as well as “scaffolding professional learning“.

AnneMarie Cunningham's insight:

Do you like elearning 'packages'? I don't. Jane isn't too keen on it either.  Today (via @FionaQuigs) I came across this post from Jane about scaffolding rather than packaging. Curation is scaffolding.

Create or Curate? - Designed For Learning

Create or Curate? - Designed For Learning | social media and networks in medical education | Scoop.it
AnneMarie Cunningham's insight:

Lovely post by @designedlearnin- includes "Learning is different to news. The important stuff is persistent. It has a long shelf-life."

 

I like the graphic but I doubt that anyone was creating all of the content they used in 2010. That doesn't make sense. But I do think that when it comes to elearning' content, the reuse and repurposing of existing content has never taken off as we imagine it should. Curation can be a way of resuing, and even repurposing though... agree?

What does curation mean to you and how can it be used in learning? - Google Drive

AnneMarie Cunningham's insight:

This is a google spreadsheet put together for a workshop. Using a crowd-sourced document to gather these insights is a fantastic idea as there is still not a lot of research on these ideas. Now the resource lives on 6 months after the workshop. By the way, I found it because I was googling to see if anyone had concerns that curation is 'spoonfeeding' students.... it seems some do.
