Why Curation Will Transform Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons

Why Curation Will Transform Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it
"This article, builds up over my recent presentation on Content Curation for Education that I delivered at Emerge2012 virtual conference.

In that presentation I claimed that the adoption of "curation approaches" will directly affect the way competences are taught, how textbooks are put together, how students are going to learn about a subject, and more than anything, the value that can be generated for "others" through a personal learning path.

If we learn not by memorizing facts, but by collaborating with others in the creation of a meaningful collection-explanations of specific topics/issues/events then, for the first time in history, we can enrich planetary knowledge each time we take on a new learning task." -- from source: http://www.masternewmedia.org/
ghbrett's insight:

As we produce more content and multimedia, who is going to clean up after us? Since we have endless storage on site and in many "clouds," there is less need to prune or delete data than ever before. This reviewer remembers having a disk with 26KB storage which needed to be used attentively. This article is one of the better of the emerging topic and related processes of Curating our stuff. Often the metaphor of one's Digital Footprints is raised as a way of describing all the different services, systems, machines, archives, etc., etc. that our stuff is. Oh, and then there are the other pack rats who have copied our stuff and put it into their stashes. Folks, it's time to take a moment to reflect on what we are doing with content, media, and stuff. Then curate by pruning, updating, aggregating, and other such digital stewardship. Finally, as my Father always said, "Don't do as I do, please do what I say." (grin)

10 Things Your Students Should Know About Their Digital Footprints | EdReach | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it
"Building a digital legacy is an issue I believe doesn’t garner enough attention in our personal and professional lives. In fact, some of the heaviest users of online tools and social media are our young students, who are growing up as a generation of visual learners and visual attention seekers. This is in fact the Facebook and YouTube generation, and the reality is that many teens are unconcerned about the dangers of sharing personal information online." - from Source: http://edreach.us/
ghbrett's insight:

NOTE: Common sense is a core ingredient of this article. But, then again common sense is not always applied to digital content by students, employees, or other people. It's just text on a screen and not big deal. As these ten items point out your content may not go away just because you deleted it. So, this is worth reading and thinking about.


To flip this idea -- what would you want your __fill in the blank__ (Grandmother, employeer, admissions officer, supervisor, etc., etc.) to know about you? Keep these thoughts in mind in your daily interactions on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr, Pinterest, etc., etc. Carry this further and use Social Media and aggregators to develop a digital portfolio that shows your various skills in communication, design, photography, community involvement, and such.
