Wendy Clark's curator insight, March 9, 10:48 AM

Curation

"Curation may refer to:

Content curation, collecting and sorting content

Digital curation, the preservation and maintenance of digital assets

Curation may also be:

The work performed by a curatorArchiving, historical record keeping

Evidence management, indexing and cataloguing of evidence

Cultural heritage management, conservation of cultural sites and resources".  From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

The curation topic that I am putting together is based around Teaching Technology to Year 3 and Year 4 using the Australian Curriculum: Technology as a guideline. Jarche (2012) says that curation is essential for professionals in the digital age because we all struggle with information overload and that it is essential to have a process in place to manage personal knowledge.

 

The curation process is described by Jarche (2012) and Kanter (2011) as having 3 phases - Seek, Sense, Share. 

 

Seek – seek playfully to connect

Sense – make sense and be empowered through learning

Share – share to inspire through your work  (Jarche, n.d.)

 

The tools that I will be using to seek information will be Twitter, Diigo, Zite and Pinterest.  In sensing I will archive, annotate and apply what I have learned and by blogging and providing insight on my curation page I will apply what I have learned.  Resources will be shared on Scoopit, Twitter and My WordPress blog.

Does it pay to be honest on Twitter?

Does it pay to be honest on Twitter? Increasingly, the answer may be “no.”

In the past, I’ve written a blog post about my life in social media each time I hit a milestone on Twitter. 10,000 followers, 20,000 followers, etc.

Last week I hit 50,000 followers so I thought I would reflect on one of the philosophical issues I’m dealing with. Maybe it will help and support you in your journey too.

THE problem with the thought police has never been that they think too much.

They don't have a uniform, or a warrant card, or rules. Its members join in whenever they feel like giving someone a shoeing. And the only way you can identify the thought police is their lack of any actual thought.

StudyHall Is A New Peer-To-Peer Learning Platform - Edudemic

StudyHall Is A New Peer-To-Peer Learning Platform - Edudemic | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Posted by Katie Lepi

 

"StudyHall is a peer-to-peer learning platform for classmates to share and connect. StudyHall flips the traditional learning model, putting collaboration and productivity tools in the hands of students. Combining live interactive features with helpful question and answer course pages, StudyHallrevives classroom discussion when students are back in the dorm room and in need of help. It’s a social academic platform that engages students and enhances the classroom experience.

 

"StudyHall is taking the populist approach to online education and creating a tool that is built only for students. In the platform, students will have access to an academically charged environment that only students can access. StudyHall gives college students what they should have had a long time ago: a sophisticated online instrument that enables them to collaborate with trusted peers, without worrying about the noise of other networks, professors and privacy issues."

Russell Webster - Curating online content is a great way to develop your digital footprint | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

What is content curation?
Did you ever think there might be too much information on the internet?

When’s the last time you did a Google search that didn’t return tens of thousands of results?

To profit from this overload of information we need two main skills:

 

Crap detection – working out what is reliable and what is (accidentally or on purpose) not
