Me gusta el concepto de "Evento de Aprendizaje". puede que con él, si es suficientemente amplio, se pueda resolver el batiburrillo de métodos, técnicas, estrategias, procedimientos, protocolos, tácticas, etcétera, con la que nuestros profes se enredan más y más.

Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.

This post shares 10 websites that are "game hubs" and the games range from one for students as young as preK to students in high school. The list of the sites is below and additional information is in the post (as are links to each). Have fun exploring them and sharing them with your students, and if you know a site that is not listed leave in the Comment section.
