Whether students choose to handwrite, sketch, or type their notes, the challenge lies not in choosing, but in creating a system that allows them to ultimately curate, synthesize, and reflect on what they learn..

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Filtering digital information is a survival skill.

 

Teaching curation skills means teaching critical thinking as part of the note taking, and information gathering process.  You can weave this skill into any curriculum you teach. You serve your subject area as you build thinking skills and implement standards.

Ben Betts: We can think of digital curation as being useful to us in four broad roles that I’m calling Inspiration, Aggregation, Integration and Application. Inspiration is how I term curation that is done by other people on your behalf, outside of a formal learning environment.  Aggregation is the same thing, but done within a formal learning context.  Integration is a more personal curation process; how individuals blend new learning experiences with existing thoughts.  And finally Application is how individuals apply new insights in the real world; how we individually manage knowledge on a day-to-day basis.  I capture this flow in a simple matrix that demonstrates how the four types of curation can flow into each other in a continuous learning cycle:

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solvingre-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing." 


Via Mary Reilley Clark
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I learned geography and history from collecting stamps and coins.  The same principal holds true when you collect information on the internet. Curation is not just bookmarking. It's selecting, categorizing, synthesizing.  Digital literacy is a byproduct of the curation process.  Blend your curriculum with curation and see engagement soar.

Curate and Create Learning Resources

If we want to have students seek out other information from sources other than the teacher, then we must make sure those resources are available. Many teachers using the flipped classroom approach already have created or found these kinds of resources. However, think broadly about the word resource. People are resources, texts are resources, and community organizations are resources -- to name just a few categories. We have to be comfortable not always knowing the answer, and instead suggesting we find the answer together through the vast amount of learning resources that we have at our disposal. Try curating these resources before, during, and after a unit. Work with students as well to create a culture where the answers are everywhere.

Knowing how to ask questions will help anyone find what they seek. Why not start young?

A key part of the Seek > Sense > Share framework for PKM is to find new ways to explain things, or add value to existing information.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Harold Jarche is a thinker.  His ideas help clarify how to swim in the sea of digital information that online teachers and learners must navigate.  Intended for a business audience, Jarche's PKM approach also applies to anyone interested in the flow of information and how to transform that information into action.

A visual overview of Harold Jarche's model for PKM

Florence Gilzene-Cheese's curator insight, August 22, 2015 12:11 PM

The idea from the Seek, Sense, Share PKM network that speaks to the development of a framework for professional development. PKM is driven by metacognition and allows the individual to seek to fill identified knowledge gaps and make sense of the information that is available and further share the knowledge that is gained. This info-graphic supports the framework and identifies the flow among the ideas in the Seek, Sense, Share process of PKM.

Fair Use and Curation - Five Rules to Curate by

Fair Use and Curation - Five Rules to Curate by | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By Pawan Deshpande "Recently, Kimberley Isbell of the Nieman Journalism Lab cited a Harvard Law report and published an extensive post on news aggregation and legal considerations. From a curation perspective, the whole article is interesting, but what was the most surprising was that her recommendations for being an ethical content aggregator, were the same as being an effective content curator."

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The author makes a strong case for his assertion that ethical content aggregation and effective content curation are synonymous. Deshpande's "5 Rules to being an Ethical Content Curator" are a solid start on a list of best practices for curation.

Curating is about finding and selecting information in order to learn about a subject. Youngsters can be encouraged to do this  pre-school.  This motivational 21st century skill can be encouraged at home. with educational games toys and and books which stimulates interest.  For example children can learn about  science by interacting with Chemistry Lab; Horrible Science - explosive experiments; Newton's Cradle and Science Museum.  By the time they get to school they are already full of curiosity and ready to increase their knowledge.  Audrey curating for www.homeschoolsource.co.uk

By Robin Good,

Here's a short first-hand report highlighting how an 8th grade social studies class teacher (Terri Inloes) has fully leveraged the content curation potential to let her students dive, discover and make sense of topics (in this case social reform movements) that they had not studied before. All by themselves.


Here the steps taken to make this happen:


a) By using the Question Formulation Technique, the teacher prepared pairs of photographs representing each of the reform movements, one picture dating back to the late 19th century, and another representing where that social reform movement stands in today’s society. 


b) After checking out all of the photos, students settled on the pair of pictures that most caught their interest.


c) They brainstormed and refined a set of specific questions, and then shared their thinking with the class. 

d) With the feedback received they selected the topic which they would curate. 

e) At this point students planned their research strategies. By using 5 different graphic organizers from the book Q Tasks, by Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, students were allowed to choose the one that they thought would help them the most in planning their keyword search strategies. 


f) Students were assigned WordPress blogs and provided basic instructions on how to use them to 

curate and publish their research work.


g) Discovery and real learning kicked in as students proceeded in collaborative groups to research and document their chosen topic. 


You can see some of the outcomes that this assignment produced right here:

Mental Health Treatment

Prohibition Acts

A very inspiring example of content curation can be effectively applied in the classroom with impressive results. 


Highly recommended. 9/10
