Documenting OF/FOR/AS Learning | Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano
Upgrade Documentation beyond Observations: Documentation as Pedagogy. Teachers have always documented their lessons, through informal note taking and lesson planning. Traditional documentation of jotting down observations and analog documentation have their limitations though. It is time to change the notion and the way we document. Participants will look at tools and techniques, ranging from video and audio recordings to image capturing, screencasting and reflective, hyperlinked documentation that support modern skills and literacies. We will also go beyond text based, disconnected and random documentation to formalize a documentation process that serves several layers deep.On a student level, students create dynamic learning portfolios, as part of the documentation process, monitoring their own learning, making thinking and learning visible to others.

Innovations in Education » Understanding Content Curation
July 7, 2012 Come to my session at ISTE 2016: “Personalize Learning With Student Curation” 6/28 4:00 – 5:00 CCC 113, Table 2 There are many buzzwords and phrases prevalent in education today. “21st Century Learning”, “Blended Learning”, “Personalized Learning”, “Flipped Classroom” – just to name a few. The one that has recently caught my attention and curiosity is “content curation.” I manage a grant project in my district designed to assure students acquire “21st century skills” A current strategy for this is using backwards design, formative assessments of 21st century skills, and “blended-learning.” New for next school year: teachers are being asked to “curate resources” to accompany the backwards-planned, inquiry-based units of instruction. This curiosity led to further questions: Why curate? Collecting vs. I set out to read as much as possible of what others have written on the subject, (see my Scoop-It on Curating Learning Resources) to help with my understanding. Thinking Level

We are living in an era of information overload. So much content is shared online that curation is needed as a way to get value out of the information flood. Content curation is the process of shifting through the vast abundance of content on the Internet to select the best, most relevant resource, on a specific topic or theme, so that we can organize, manage and collate the content for ourselves and share with others. Content curation is about working smarter and not harder. Content curation is also a reflective process; as you curate resources you reflect on their value. Why is curation important? Curation is a life skill and an important part of being digitally literate.

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content
The term “curate” has become a buzzword in education. I’ve seen it referenced in TEDx Talks and tossed around in Twitter chats. A few years ago, the term “curation” would have conjured up images of art galleries but now I associate it with conversations about the future of education. And yet . . . I’m really drawn toward an archaic definition of the term. It originally had a much more earthy, even gritty, connotations. Over time, this word morphed into an intense care and love for a particular subject, knowledge, or set of artistic works. This is something often overlooked in the conversations about education and curation. While I see some validity in this sentiment, I think it proves that now more than ever, teachers need to be curators. What does curation typically look like? Content curation begins with an intense love of the content. Curators have a holistic, connected knowledge combined with thoughtful commentary. Favorite Education Curators Favorite General Curators

But it’s ok. I can empathize with these entrepreneurs. I can see why they say what they say, and why they promote and market their technologies as miracle time-saving machines. They are just trying to achieve what they see as their key goal: making their technology and startup successful (profitable). To market their curation tools, entrepreneurs in this sector have identified in the need for finding and creating new valuable content without spending tons of times and costly human resources, a fantastic set of problems to intercept and solve with their technologies. Fair enough. Thus, after having assembled complex engines that search, report, discover new content and allow you to repost, schedule and distribute it endlessly across the many available Internet channels, these companies needed to find a storyline that would persuade readers of the true value that their new tools could provide them. And “curation” for content marketing purposes offered almost the perfect one. Why?

Content Curation: Cos'è, Come E Perché Utilizzarla
La content curation è una metodologia di esplorazione conoscitiva personale così come un approccio all'apprendimento e al giornalismo basato sulla raccolta, organizzazione e presentazione di informazioni mirate a creare risorse esaustive su un argomento specifico. Photo credits: Flowers Background - Shutterstock Al livello più semplice e personale, questa metodologia può tradursi nella creazione di un catalogo di risorse, informazioni ed articoli su un argomento che si desidera approfondire. Per chi fa il giornalista o l'editore indipendente su Internet, la cura dei contenuti può invece essere messa al servizio di iniziative rivolte a sviluppare progetti di approfondimento o d'inchiesta che raccolgono, curano e presentano analisi, interviste, report e dati riguardanti uno stesso argomento selezionando dal meglio dei propri archivi o attingendo al meglio di quanto prodotto da altri. 1) Che Cos'è la Content Curation 1. a) moltissimo lavoro di ricerca ed esplorazione, Puoi accedervi qui:

Curation for Digital Learning | BYOT Network
Schools and districts are now utilizing an influx of digital tools, content, and platforms with several hopeful intentions. With the use of these resources, educators are planning to better engage student learning, increase academic performance; and prepare students for an ever-changing digital world. Whether the technology devices are owned by the students and brought to school as part of a Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) initiative or provided by the district, teachers and students are using these tools and accessing online platforms to transform learning experiences by developing new ways to connect with each other and digital content. Although greater access to technology tools and devices has increased, with public schools now providing at least one computer for every five students and ensuring high-speed Internet connections (Education Week, 2016), these resources are still not fully achieving their desired goals.
