Social media for distance teaching and learning
Social media has the potential to impact teaching and learning significantly, but especially for learning at a distance. On this page I want to share valuable resources especially with teachers and trainers. Suggestions are more than welcome.

Learning By Exploring, Organizing and Curating a Body of Information: Curatr

Robin Good: Curatr, an elearning platform built upon the idea of discovery through the curation and sense-making of existing information, has just released an updated version of its platform which you can check out here: http://www.curatr.co.uk/index2.php 


Live demo: http://www.curatr.co.uk/index2.php?view=demo 


Curatr allows professional trainers, experts, and teachers, as much as students to organize and curate information for the purpose of learning.

 

What I like very much is the Curatr promotional video, which says lots of true things about education and about the way we should carry it out in the future. The next-button-robot approach to information memorization needs to be replaced with a new approach: learning to understand how learners construct knowledge.


Curatr is about the construction of the scaffolding that allows people to learn and to find the resources that should help them best learn what they are interested into. 


Promising. Insightful. 8/10

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools | Social media for distance teaching and learning | Scoop.it

What is social media curation? Today, with the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, it can be overwhelming searching for information on the internet. As a result, the act of filtering, selecting, reviewing and providing commentary with a perspective on an article, or collection of articles, have become increasingly important. This is known as social media curation.

Are you the education technology curator for your organisation? #curation » Cat's Pyjamas | Social media for distance teaching and learning | Scoop.it

The activity I’ve just described, that Hans and I were engaged in for our organisations, is digital curation. Us education technologists have probably been acting as digital curators for our organisations around the e-learning and education technology topics for longer than we realise. If you’re an edtech who recognises this, I would love to hear your experiences and thoughts. (JS)

1. First, realize that you ARE a subject matter expert. Narrow your topic or topics to what you know well. What do you want to focus on and share? What do you already have opinions about in your industry? Whom do you know? Be specific. What should be in your Twitter "mix"? Think 70-20-10.
