Aparna Nagaraj's insight:

We learn as we work. Most code developers learn their craft as they work. You find better ways of doing same things, when you do something over and over. You find a new way to solve a problem when you face it. And, you learn from what your peers share with you during coffee on what they are working on.

The first point is that no student is an island and that is so true. The use of digital technologies can lead to creating isolation. Their uses are the work of competent teachers.

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content | Workplace Learning | Scoop.it
Curation is a life skill and an important part of being digitally literate.  Educators need to know how to curate information so they can teach students how they can curate content for research, their interests and passion. As part of this process educators need to encourage students to curate information using techniques that address their own personal learning needs.

Aparna Nagaraj's insight:

You come across a lot of stuff, find some of them valuable, find value in some parts, and you see connections between the different stuff you come across. You curate by filtering, extracting, and bringing out the connection between the stuff you find, and this curated new stuff becomes more valuable than those already shared stuff that you found. Valuable enough to be shared to others who are looking for similar stuff as you are.

We introduce content curation using both Diigo and Scoop.it in our E-Learning for Educators class. It's our firm belief that online teachers must be information fluent and that they teach those skills to their online students.


We also see these skills as a strong foundation for building personal learning networks.
