Neat idea, use curriculum time to curate resources to use in lieu of, or to accompany class textbooks.  Further, students can identify textbook flaws and discrepant information and follow up with verifying accurate information.

Make students curators

Make students curators | Technology Applications | Scoop.it

" 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?" - Indeed! Curating content is a pathway to cultivating these skills --and transferring ownership of learning to the student. Excellent post by Leslie Madsen-Brooks.

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project | Technology Applications | Scoop.it

Dr Corrine Weisgerber (@corrinew) teaches a Social Media Class at St Edward's University in Austin, Texas. On this site she shares details of her Transformational Digital Learning Designs in which her students are actively engaged in a Personal Learning Project, Blogging Project, Curation Assignment, Conversation Engagement, Live-Blogging/Live-Tweeting Project and Participation Assessment. The details of these assignment briefs to students can be found here: http://myweb.stedwards.edu/corinnew/comm4352/COMM3309SP12.pdf

 

Corrine shares some of the best examples of her students' work too - check out the blog roll which takes you to a selection of her students' blogs and some delightful curation projects where students used Scoop.It! and Storiful as the choice of digital media to present their work and demonstrate their learning.

 

One of her most rewarding learning designs was The Curation Project.

Why Curation Will Transform Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons

Why Curation Will Transform Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons | Technology Applications | Scoop.it
Content curation will play a major role both in the way we teach and in the way we educate ourselves on any topic. When and where it will be adopted, it will deeply affect many key aspects of the educational ecosystem.

 

In this article, Robin Good idenfies and describes 10 key factors that are coming together at this point in time that may dramatically change the education landscape:

 

1. An Overwhelming Abundance of Information Which Begs To Be Organized

2. A Growing Number of "Open" Teaching / Learning Content Hubs

3. Constantly Changing Information

4. Real-World Info Is Not Held Inside Silos

5. Fast-Food Info Consumption in Decline

6. Job Market Changing - New Skills Needed

7. Alternative Certification Systems Emerging

8. Teachers Can Curate Their Textbooks

9. Educational Marketplace Open to Thousands of Competitors

10. Demand for Trusted Guidance

 

Robin explains, "Curation fits in as a more appropriate approach to learning and to prepare for real-world work challenges, by allowing learners to construct meaning by having to research and to understand and to create new relationships between different information-elements."

 

I agree.

 

Robin further explores the impact on higher education, and the possibility that we are experiencing a "higher education bubble."  Very interersting thought. To ride out this storm Robin suggests institutions  "rapidly upgrade their role and function to where they can still provide a valuable and in-demand service to both society and individuals. One of these he suggests is to become...

 

"curating human guides, training future curators - by cultivating and supporting the development of skilled information-guides and coaches that possess the skills of a curator and those of a great story-teller." 

 

Immediately I thought...this is what librarians do!

 

Excellent article!

7 Ways To Curate Content More Creatively | TeachThought

7 Ways To Curate Content More Creatively | TeachThought | Technology Applications | Scoop.it

I love the description of the 5 year old boy who is exploring a creek, and then brings back some treasures to share with his parents. This is the joy of curating - given the freedom to explore, students will sift through what is available to find the treasures that are meaningful to them - that help them make connections.

This post by Terry Heick also offers descriptions and short videos of some curation tools for students. I am particularly intrested in finding safe curation sites for students to use. The one that caught my attention here is Learnist.
Learnist is a highly-focused method of curating content. Instead of curating-in-bulk, Learnist users create a learning board around a topic. The goal is for students to then teach others about their curated topic.
