Pretty interesting to see how useful this will prove for curating tweets directly from permalinks. The end of screen capturing is over and this is good news for curators, isn't it? 

 

And cool to see it's working on Scoop.it very nicely :-)

Humanities scholars consider the role of peer review | Inside Higher Ed

Humanities scholars consider the role of peer review | Inside Higher Ed | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

"Blind peer review is dead. It just doesn’t know it yet." That's the way Aaron J. Barlow, an associate professor of English at the College of Technology of the City University of New York, summed up his views here on the future of the traditional way of deciding whose work gets published in the humanities.

There Are No Technology Shortcuts to Good Education « Educational Technology Debate

There Are No Technology Shortcuts to Good Education « Educational Technology Debate | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

There are no technology shortcuts to good education. For primary and secondary schools that are underperforming or limited in resources, efforts to improve education should focus almost exclusively on better teachers and stronger administrations. Information technology, if used at all, should be targeted for certain, specific uses or limited to well-funded schools whose fundamentals are not in question.

(Caveat: Because this article was written for an audience most interested in government-funded primary and secondary education in developing countries, words like “wealthy,” “average,” and “typical” should be read with that context in mind. But, the conclusions are relevant for a broad class of primary and secondary schools in developed countries, as well.)

Learning to Slow Down

Learning to Slow Down | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

Computers create the expectation of a quick answer, of immediate feedback; they offer endless visual and aural stimulation. For lightning-round test-prep this is a great medium, and for single answer questions, electronic polling is fun. But, because the computer brings this kind of fast response into the classroom, it starts to crowd out thoughtful, slow-response work.

 

[Similar comments when mobile phones and email became common place in business. The value of asynchronous discussion such as in forums, where one is given time to reflect and refine one's answer is one of the positive aspects in using computers in learning. Always consider pedagogy before technology. - Clem]

#Pencilchat: the Ultimate Technology Metaphor | MindShift

#Pencilchat: the Ultimate Technology Metaphor | MindShift | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

The idea of using the pencil as an analogy to talk about technology in the classroom is hardly a new one. But the analogy has resurfaced and spread in recent weeks, sparked in part by a reading of John T. Spencer’s book Pencil Me In, which uses the pencil allegory to talk about technology integration, and by the virality of the Twitter hashtag #pencilchat.

Copyright and remix culture: The new Prohibition?

Copyright and remix culture: The new Prohibition? | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

As Mathew Ingram introduces: "The principle behind copyright has been taking a beating from "remix culture," driven in large part by YouTube and other video sites."

 

There are a number of creative activities you can put in that "remix culture" and though curation is not a challenge to current copyright law as it doesn't change the nature of the original content, it is probably part of its broader definition.

 

What's interesting is that the first challenge to copyright was piracy. But the remix culture has nothing to do with the motivation to get content for free: it is about creating the new from the existing, just like DJ's remix and sample songs to create new pieces. 

 

Interesting to watch how this wave will shape the future of publishing.

More pedagogic change in 10 years than last 1000 years – all driven by 10 technology innovations

More pedagogic change in 10 years than last 1000 years – all driven by 10 technology innovations

Pedagogy - one of those words that’s used when people want to sound all academic. So let’s just call it learning practice. Of one thing we can be sure; teaching does not seem to have changed much in the last 100 years. In our Universities, given the stubborn addiction to lectures, it has barely changed in 1000 years. So what’s the real source of pedagogic change?

Twelve Things You Were Not Taught in School About Creative Thinking | The Creativity Post

Twelve Things You Were Not Taught in School About Creative Thinking | The Creativity Post | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

Creativity is paradoxical. To create, a person must have knowledge but forget the knowledge, must see unexpected connections in things but not have a mental disorder, must work hard but spend time doing nothing as information incubates, must create many ideas yet most of them are useless, must look at the same thing as everyone else, yet see something different, must desire success but embrace failure, must be persistent but not stubborn, and must listen to experts but know how to disregard them.
