Andreas Kuswara's comment, June 11, 2013 9:22 PM
I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.

Many people learn one tool and then move on to others. I like to analyze each and use the best features of that particular 2.0 project. I use twitter as a push tool to share info for the most part.

OPINION: The Case for 'Learning Designers'

OPINION: The Case for 'Learning Designers' | DPG Online | Scoop.it

"For edtech startups to be be profoundly successful (ie. transform learning experiences on a grand scale) they really need to be innovative with their pedagogy as well as their technology. Otherwise, there is a danger that things they build will just end up replicating existing practices, only faster and shinier."

So true and so easily lost in the desire to be "innovative" schools.
Drora Arussy's curator insight, May 7, 2013 9:14 AM

So many schools are going for the wow factor of new technology. Good education should still be our main goal. There are so many possibilities for home and school engagement, for processing and internalizing as opposed to regurgitating information, for sharing and building upon others' ideas. It is incumbent upon those who are using technology to up the ante - a smartboard is not just a new blackboard and projector together, an ipad can take students to other places and allow them to integrate their interests into the lessons and homework. Technology has the possibility to take education to the next lesson with the proper educators - not in and of itself.
