Curating vs. Collecting on Twitter for the Education Professional

Curating vs. Collecting on Twitter for the Education Professional | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good, Shirley Williams (appearoo.com/ShirleyWilliams)
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

 

Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano has an interesting and highly visual post on collecting vs. curating with Twitter, and on the curation potential Twitter has in store for those involved in education.

 

She quotes Mike Fisher writing: "Collecting is what kids do when asked to find resources for a particular topic. Usually, it represents the first 3 or 4 hits on a Google search, without meaning, discernment, or connections.

 

Curating is different. It’s the Critical Thinker’s collection, and involves several nuances (see Figure 1) that separate it as an independent and classroom-worthy task."

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Robin's curated posts hits it on the nail with the distinct differences and although I like the visual aspects of the post, I struggle with referring to Twitter as a curating tool.

 

It is certainly a critical tool for collecting, researching and having the conversations. I think there is a challenge on how to effectively curate with Twitter. I know many use Storify to do this which is often a re- representationof the tweets.

 

 I am very interested in how Twitter will use Summnify aand Posterous in the field of curation.

 

As a result, I really likw the distinctions made and the logic the author takes us through. I would  perhaps be a little more cautious with referring  Twitter as a curation tool.

 

Useful 6/10

Capture the Learning: Crafting the Maker Mindset

Capture the Learning: Crafting the Maker Mindset | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Plan a maker education program by identifying the content and skills you want to develop, and approach it as teaching creativity via PBL and design thinking.

Via Gust MEES
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Yes, I like to include the study of the  basics within the larger picture. This gives these smaller goals broader applied meaning.

more...
Gust MEES's curator insight, December 2, 5:56 PM

In a maker classroom, no two projects look alike, which can be difficult to manage within a 40- or 50-minute period. Stanford’s d.school has developeddesign thinking, which is a codification of the artistic or scientific way of thinking:


  • Understanding and empathy
  • Defining the problem
  • Brainstorming solutions 
  • Prototyping a solution
  • Testing the solution
  • Reiterating.

Design thinking allows teachers to have control over messy maker projects. You can set distinct time restraints for different steps of the process that will keep everyone on roughly the same timeline. For instance, you can insist that the research phase is finished by a certain date so that students can share information with one another before they move on to the brainstorming stage.

Understanding vs. Experience

So should students make things? Asking them to express an idea translated into another medium requires them to know something holistically and more deeply. They must understand both its complexities and its parts. It's the same as knowing something well enough to teach it -- you have to understand it completely, as well as how all the different pieces fit together. Students may know how many troops died during the Vietnam War, but going to the Memorial and experiencing it physically, walking through the space, touching the names and having a personal connection is a more human way of knowing. This understanding is intricately tied to our senses and creates a deeper, layered knowing of an abstract concept, making it personal and relevant.

Kym Reinstadler, SCN Feature Writer's curator insight, December 3, 12:51 PM

Can creativity be taught? Maybe not, but it can be nurtured. The Maker Movement does this so well. I’ve seen kids and adults get really excited about producing things. Here are some ideas for incorporating that thinking into schools.
