Shona Whyte:

Interesting analysis of the impact on teaching of the increasing availability of licensed (above the waterline) and more informal resources (below the water line).

 

Dave White:

"We will have to come up with assessment tasks that don’t allow the student to simply find the answer through an easy access easy to find OER."

Re-envisioning Modern Pedagogy: Educators as Curators

Two professors of communication tackle the interface between curating and teaching.  Of course this is easier if you're teaching communication, since the medium is the message. 

 

For my concerns - teaching foreign languages and training FL teachers - it's clear that there are links between what I curate and what and how I teach: I put things on this Scoop.it for later use in class, and share my students' findings on here too.  And setting the students loose in social media helps them understand the field and become more independent professionals.

 

But I still fear that in the headlong rush forward to find, scoop, post and tweet, the reflective part of the educationational enterprise may get trampled underfoot.
