Content curation in relation to students' work and assignments is discussed in this blog post by Ibrar Bhatt. (And more general, what implications content curation could have for education.)

 

From the revised Bloom's taxonomy perspective, curation could be seen next to creation at the highest level, see Steve Wheeler's great post on this: http://sco.lt/66Yxwf, (The post had a big influenced when I started with Scoop.it and ZEEF.)

 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 26, 3:56 PM

Thinking of teaching as curating is one possible way of extending and transforming what we think about education. It takes us beyond the over-simplified reforms cast down from on high and reflects new ways of thinking about transforming education

Do I Need a Digital Teaching Portfolio?

Do I Need a Digital Teaching Portfolio? | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Designing a well-organized and professional teaching portfolio can give you an edge in a competitive job market, and help you score high marks on your school's teacher evaluation form. It is, however, a time-consuming endeavor (the average portfolio takes about two to three days of work), and once built, your portfolio will require regular attention.

Why Visual Content Matters in the Social Age [INFOGRAPHIC]

Why Visual Content Matters in the Social Age [INFOGRAPHIC] | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Sono sicuro si sa che il contenuto visivo sui social media può massicciamente migliorare l'impegno. Ma quanto è importante?

Che ne dite di questo: il cervello umano elabora le immagini 60.000 volte più veloce di testo. Di conseguenza, il 90 per cento di tutte le informazioni che arriva al cervello è visivo.

Sul web, si stima che il 55 per cento di tutto il traffico sarà il video entro il 2016, e il traffico video mobile aumenterà del 1800 per cento. YouTube, Instagram e Vine sono attualmente le migliori piattaforme per massimizzare il video fidanzamento, quindi sono li che utilizzano al loro pieno potenziale nelle tue campagne di marketing?

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 25, 7:21 PM

What does it mean to be digitally literate? If you ask teachers, students, parents, administrators, and community members the responses may be very different. This post explores this issue and notes (for the teacher):

"Digital literacy isn't about knowing computers inside and out; it's about using technology to change the way you think. If critical thinking skills haven't yet become a part of your students' digital citizenship, it's time to think your teaching strategy."

After the introduction, the post is split into two sections:

5 Teaching Practices that Destroy Digital Literacy. One of the practices is "using 'cool' technology to deliver a planned lesson." To learn why click through to the post.

The final section is 15 Habits to Cultivate in Your Students. Two are listed below.

* Read past the first page of Google results (and my suggestion would be to use some of the many alternative search engines. You may be surprised that many other search engines work better for students).

* Train students to react skeptically if they read the phrase  'Research says...' or 'A recent study revealed..."

To learn more about the 15 habits check out the post. Do you have ideas that would be helpful to others? If so, please share them.

I discovered ThingLink while teaching one of my online art classes.  It is a great tool for any blended learning environment, but was extremely useful for my 100% online class.  Students were able to annotate images to provide commentary on symbolism, artist intent, and historical context on the precise areas of the image where the comments were relevant.
