Interesting, in other ways this could also be seen as framing learning as a constant performance of assessment. Where do you draw the line ?

Connected Learning Manifesto for Connected Educator Month

Connected Learning Manifesto for Connected Educator Month | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

"A revolution in technology has transformed the way we can find each other, interact, and collaborate to create knowledge as connected learners." (Connected Learning Manifesto - http://plpnetwork.com/2012/07/23/connected-learning-manifesto/)

 

Justin Marquis wrote suggestions to also be added to the Manifesto and to further the discussion about the impact of connected learning. He focused on these topics:
- Connectivity/Collaboration
- Empowerment/Self-Directed Learning
- Creativity/Innovation
- Diversity/Breaking Down Boundaries
- Self-Awareness/Reflection
- Lifelong Learning

 

Really agree with the author’s statement: “Connected Learning helps develop the literacy skills necessary to survive in a hi-tech world.”

Capture The Moment - Half Photo Half Video: Cinemagraphs Come To Microsoft Cliplets

Robin Good: Microsoft Research has recently released its own authoring tool to create cinemagraphs, by utilizing short video clips in which, only an element is kep "alive", while all others are rendered as a traditional still photo. 

 

From Wikipedia: "Cinemagraphs are still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement occurs. Cinemagraphs, which are usually published in an animated GIF format, can give the illusion that the viewer is watching a video.

 

...

 

The term "cinemagraph" was coined by U.S. photographers Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck, who used the technique to animate their fashion and news photographs beginning in early 2011."

 

 

My comments: Cinemagraphs / cinemagrams is a new emerging visual art form with great potential. It captures "moments" in a unique way, providing a new exciting and infinite exploratory space for the artist/author creating it. I'd recommend it as a "core" topic in all visual communication courses. Start experimenting with it yourself on your PC with this very tool from Microsoft, or on your iPad/iPhone with Cinemagr.am

 

 

For Windows PCs only.

Students are the future, but what's the future for students? To arm them with the relevant, timeless skills for our rapidly changing world, we need to revolutionize what it means to learn. Education innovators like Dr. Sugata Mitra, visiting professor at MIT; Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy; and Dr. Catherine Lucey, Vice Dean of Education at UCSF, are redefining how we engage young minds for a creatively and technologically-advanced future. Which of these eduvators holds the key for unlocking the learning potential inside every student?

Reducing the Cost of Logging In to Learn

Reducing the Cost of Logging In to Learn | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

As public schools in Chicago have shifted their focus to online learning, the benefits have been blunted by the fact that home access to the Internet costs too much for some students, leading districts to look for different approaches to bring Internet access to the city’s poorest families...

 

... Some people, though, are concerned that a corporation [Comcast in this case] is playing such a large role in providing a basic tool of the public school curriculum. “We don’t want corporations to be filling in the gaps for what should be provided by local, state and federal governments,” said Jackson Potter, staff coordinator of the Chicago Teachers Union.

Comcast’s promotion of the initiative, he said, turns students into tools of the company’s marketing campaign.

How can an instructional designer (ID) leverage social interaction online to engage learners, increase exchange and dialogue, and get better results, without losing the purposeful focus provided by an instructor or traditional course content and structure? Many IDs are intrigued by the potential of communal experiences online, but there is a great deal of uncertainty about how to proceed. Here are a couple of cases that you may find interesting. Afterward, I offer a roadmap for producing similar results.

Information Abundance and Its Implications for Education

Information Abundance and Its Implications for Education | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it
As I read through the social media networks, the concept of information overload is continually being discussed.... I have re-framed information overload from being discussed as a cautionary consequence of the technology age to us living in a time of information abundance.
As educators, we have this gift of information abundance. It should be leveraged and strategically used for our own and our students’ learning. When educators do not acknowledge, incorporate, and integrate the many types and uses of our real world technologies, they are failing their students.

How do librarians adapt the way we approach what we do when we come from a tradition of information scarcity to an information age when information abundance is the new norm?

David Bramley's curator insight, January 10, 2013 5:20 PM

I've become more than a little obsessed with adding social learning to the educational offer for adults.  This post is a timely reminder that more fundamental changs are required, where educators are no longer the gatekeepers to information, open access to the internet is more important than expensive text books and information and digital literacies need to be embedded across the curriculum.

 

As a bonus, right at the end there is a great Pezi  on Personal Learning Networks or Students.  Brilliant :)

Understanding the Value of Curation for Education: Nancy White

Understanding the Value of Curation for Education: Nancy White | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Robin Good: What does curation mean from an educational viewpoint? And what is the key difference between "collecting" and "curating".

Nancy White (@NancyW), a 21st Century Learning & Innovation Specialist and the author of Innovations in Education blog, has written an excellent article, dissecting the key characterizing traits of curation, as a valuable resource to create and share knowledge. 

 

She truly distills some key traits of curation in a way that is clear and comprehensible to anyone.

 

She writes: "The first thing I realized is that in order to have value-added benefits to curating information, the collector needs to move beyond just classifying the objects under a certain theme to deeper thinking through a) synthesis and b) evaluation of the collected items.

 

How are they connected?"

 

Excellent definition. 

 

And then she also frames perfectly the relevance of "context" for any meaningful curation project by writing: "I believe when we curate, organization moves beyond thematic to contextual – as we start to build knowledge and understanding with each new resource that we curate.

 

Themes have a common unifying element – but don’t necessarily explain the “why.”

 

Theme supports a central idea – Context allows the learner to determine why that idea (or in this case, resource) is important.

 

So, as collecting progresses into curating, context becomes essential to determine what to keep, and what to discard."

 

But there's a lot more insight distilled in this article as Nancy captures with elegance the difference between collecting for a personal interest and curating for a specific audience. 

 

She finally steals my full endorsement for this article by discretely inquirying how great a value it would be to allow students to "curate" the domains of interest they need to master.

 

Excellent. Highly recommended. 9/10

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Must-read article on ClutterMuseum.com by Leslie M-B, exploring in depth the opportunity to have students master their selected topics by "curating" them, rather than by reading and memorizing facts about them.

 

"Critical and creative thinking should be prioritized over remembering content"

 

"That students should learn to think for themselves may seem like a no-brainer to many readers, but if you look at the textbook packages put out by publishers, you’ll find that the texts and accompanying materials (for both teachers and students) assume students are expected to read and retain content—and then be tested on it.


Instead, between middle school (if not earlier) and college graduation, students should practice—if not master—how to question, critique, research, and construct an argument like an historian."

 

This is indeed the critical point. Moving education from an effort to memorize things on which then to be tested, to a collaborative exercise in creating new knowledge and value by pulling and editing together individual pieces of content, resources and tools that allow the explanation/illustration of a topic from a specific viewpoint/for a specific need.

 

And I can't avoid to rejoice and second her next proposition: "What if we shifted the standards’ primary emphasis from content, and not to just the development of traditional skills—basic knowledge recall, document interpretation, research, and essay-writing—but to the cultivation of skills that challenge students to make unconventional connections, skills that are essential for thriving in the 21st century?"

 

What are these skills, you may ask. Here is a good reference where to look them up: http://www.p21.org/storage/documents/P21_Framework_Definitions.pdf (put together by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills)

 

 

Recommended. Good stuff. 9/10

How to turn students into curators.

Sample Student's curator insight, May 5, 10:14 PM

We often ask our students to create annotated bibliographies, and this focuses on their capacity to evaluate and make decisions about the validity, reliability and relevance of sources they have found. using Scoop.it, we can ask them to do much the same thing, but they will publish their ideas for an audience, and will also be able to provide and use peer feedback to enhance and tighten up their thinking. This is relevant to any curriculum area. Of course it is dependent on schools being able to access any social media, but rather than thinking about what is impossible, perhaps we could start thinking about what is possible and lobbying for change.

An innovative and pleasant way to discover and transform information to knowledge.

An innovative and pleasant way to discover and transform information to knowledge. | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Everyday hundreds of millions of Internet users find, collect, manage and absorb information of any kind from different sources like web pages, videos, blogs, wikis, images, online books, documents and even online courses. Different kinds of information processing serve different needs or aspects of our lives. Just reading news, for example, serves our need to be informed about what happens around us. Whereas organizing, socialising and verifying information serves our intrinsic need to transform information to knowledge and understand better the world. Finally knowledge certification serves our need for social acknowledgement, a better job and a better life.

Based on these facts there are two different needs.

- First, users must be able to find or create, filter, collect and organize the best pieces of information related to a subject. The shelf life of information is now so short that knowing where to find information is sometimes more valuable than knowing any particular piece of information.
-Secondly, users need a flexible system to manage and efficiently use this information regarding its format (web site, blog, wiki, document, video, online course) and its purpose (informing, entertaining, learning, certificating).
It is clear that the fields of social networking, information management, online learning and knowledge sharing are converging rapidly. Because of this evolution we need a new and innovative approach which simulates the natural way we gather information and learn.

An innovative platform wich has been built upon those principles, is now online. Learn more on http://www.schoox.com
