Learning with 'e's: Content as curriculum?

Learning with 'e's: Content as curriculum? | Teaching and Tech | Scoop.it

By Steve Wheeler

I think it's about time we reconsidered the way curricula in schools are presented. The tired, just in case model of curriculum just doesn't make sense anymore. Content is still very much king in schools, because 'content as curriculum' is easy and cost effective to deliver, and that is what most governments require and impose. But most teachers will tell you it's not the best approach. When I attended school I was required to attend classes in mathematics, English language and literature, science (physics, biology, chemistry), history, geography, music, art, Religious Education, craft and design, home economics, German and French - all just in case I might need them later in life. With the exception of a few subjects, my schooling didn't make that much sense to me.

The 50+ Best Ways to Curate and Share Your Favorite Social Media and News Content | DailyTekk | Teaching and Tech | Scoop.it

There’s so much information online just begging to be curated: news, social media, images, video, websites… the list goes on. Reading great content from my favorite blogs and websites is one of my favorite down-time activities. It’s also an important part of my job as an IT Director because I need to stay on top of the latest trends, announcements and tech news. Just a few years ago, the tools I used to use for reading and consuming content were Google Reader, StumbleUpon, Digg, Delicious… you know all the big names.

The 21 Signs you are A 21st Century Teacher

The 21 Signs you are A 21st Century Teacher | Teaching and Tech | Scoop.it

Teaching in the 21st century is definitely not an easy task. Students are digitally focused and have more free access to information challenging thus the traditional prototypic picture of the teacher as the knowledge instigator. Engagement is also another serious issue that makes educating such kind of students a real nightmare. It takes so much creativity, originality, and novelty from the part of teachers to get students motivated and engaged.

I like this quote. New sites have been launched since this article was written but it's a good starting point in your research  of  educational sites to explore.
