Curation, as a Pedagogical Tool To Embolden Critical Thinking in Education

Curation, as a Pedagogical Tool To Embolden Critical Thinking in Education | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education

Via Robin Good, Diane Kashin, Devrim Ozdemir, Ph. D., Lori Cheezem
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

Right, this is a topic I've been thinking and working with a lot lately. The authors discuss this as a tool for secondary school (mostly), but the principles apply equally to adult learners and collaboration, learning communities and communities of practice.

 

The reference list is also a valuable resource. More to add to my reading list...

Benjamin Carmel's insight:

I read this the other day, via @RogerCourville, and I just can't shake it. It is not about learning or instructional design, per se, but then again... that's exactly what it is about. The great shift is underway, and those of us in the adult learning game are -- or should be -- at the heart of it. I call it The Learning Age (http://inthelearningage.com/). The shift in power structure from command-and-control to open, transparent, and affiliated is what's going on. See @@hjarche. Such interesting times.

The Dawn of System Leadership

The Dawn of System Leadership | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it

The deep changes necessary to accelerate progress against society's most intractable problems require a unique type of leader - the system leader, a person who catalyzes collective leadership.


At no time in history have we needed such system leaders more. We face a host of systemic challenges beyond the reach of existing institutions and their hierarchical authority structures. Problems like climate change, destruction of ecosystems, growing scarcity of water, youth unemployment, and embedded poverty and inequity require unprecedented collaboration among different organizations, sectors, and even countries. Sensing this need, countless collaborative initiatives have arisen in the past decade - locally, regionally, and even globally. Yet more often than not they have floundered - in part because they failed to foster collective leadership within and across the collaborating organizations.



Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

This is a must-read for anyone interested in learning organizations, change management and leadership.

Ian Berry's curator insight, January 23, 9:12 PM

There's a lot to like in this article and much to contemplate. I particularly like the 3 core capabilities of see the large system, further reflection and more generative conversations, and shifting from reactive problem-solving to co-creating the future.

Jason Leong's curator insight, January 25, 7:13 PM

"System leaders like Baldwin and Winslow understand that collective wisdom cannot be manufactured or built into a plan created in advance. And it is not likely to come from leaders who seek to “drive” their predetermined change agenda. Instead, system leaders work to create the space where people living with the problem can come together to tell the truth, think more deeply about what is really happening, explore options beyond popular thinking, and search for higher leverage changes through progressive cycles of action and reflection and learning over time. Knowing that there are no easy answers to truly complex problems, system leaders cultivate the conditions wherein collective wisdom emerges over time through a ripening process that gradually brings about new ways of thinking, acting, and being.


For those new to system leadership, creating space can seem passive or even weak. For them, strong leadership is all about executing a plan. Plans are, of course, always needed, but without openness people can miss what is emerging, like a sailor so committed to his initial course that he won’t adjust to shifts in the wind. Even more to the point, the conscious acts of creating space, of engaging people in genuine questions, and of convening around a clear intention with no hidden agenda, creates a very different type of energy from that which arises from seeking to get people committed to your plan."

A very nice summary of the way PKM (Personal Knowledge Mastery) practice can guide us. If we wait for our opinions on some topics of social learning and PKM practice to appear in "reputable, refereed" journals, we may wait too long. It's about conversation, not confirmation.

 

"The massive quantity of information ... in blog posts, journal articles, or even television news, doesn’t matter nearly as much as how effectively we make sense of it ... All the educational technology in the world can’t replace our need for critical thinking and sense-making in today’s highly complex, networked world."

This troubles me. While nothing the author says is inaccurate, and he makes a strong case for eLearning as a key way to maximize tight training budgets, the premise is based in a false choice. It is not live training v eLearning; it is a learning program that is ongoing, grounded in continual improvement, and makes use of multiple learning channels, formal and informal.
