4 Free Ways To Start Your Own Blog - Edudemic | X-Cultural Classroom Encounters | Scoop.it

[Excerpt]: "Blogging is a digital skill that every teacher and student should have. Its a great way to expand upon and share the learning that is happening both in and out of the classroom, and to engage students in ongoing discussion on the subjects that they’re learning about.

 

Finding the best way to set up classroom blogs for your students (or an individual blog for yourself) isn’t always obvious. There are a lot of choices out there for blogging platforms, and we’re going to take a look at a couple of the most popular ones, and a couple that are designed especially for teachers and students."

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics | X-Cultural Classroom Encounters | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Must-read article on ClutterMuseum.com by Leslie M-B, exploring in depth the opportunity to have students master their selected topics by "curating" them, rather than by reading and memorizing facts about them.

 

Here is a good reference where to look them up: http://www.p21.org/storage/documents/P21_Framework_Definitions.pdf (put together by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills)

 

Recommended. Good stuff. 9/10

How to turn students into curators.

Sample Student's curator insight, May 5, 2015 10:14 PM

We often ask our students to create annotated bibliographies, and this focuses on their capacity to evaluate and make decisions about the validity, reliability and relevance of sources they have found. using Scoop.it, we can ask them to do much the same thing, but they will publish their ideas for an audience, and will also be able to provide and use peer feedback to enhance and tighten up their thinking. This is relevant to any curriculum area. Of course it is dependent on schools being able to access any social media, but rather than thinking about what is impossible, perhaps we could start thinking about what is possible and lobbying for change.
