A Musical Ode To Digital Curation - Part 1

A truly inspiring class project by @JoyceValenza. 

Robin Good's insight:

Wonderful school project uses musical performance to promote the value of curation for learning.



From an original idea by @JoyceValenza.
(2011)



Lyrics:

 

Curation, Curation Curation!
Curation, Curation. Curation!

 

Who day and night must aggregate the content, pull together knowledge, harness all the feeds

 

And who must make sense of media, tags, and text, keeping learners up to date, at school

 

Librarian, Librarian
Curation!

 

Librarian, Librarian,
Curation!

 

Who do we rely on for creative stuff
What’s best so we avoid the fluff?

 

Who must point the way to stuff that’s good enough
So we don’t miss the stuff that’s really buff!

 

The Network, the Network. Curation!
The Network, the Network, Curation!

 

At ten my three-ring notebook really held all my school stuff.
I know by now that binder can’t contain my research

 

The student, the student. Curation!
The student, the student. Curation!

 

And who does TL teach to curate with new tools,
So we can gather knowledge both in and out of school?

 

The learner, the learner! Curation!
The learner, the learner! Curation!

Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills

Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are interested in exploring content curation as a possible venue for innovating teaching and learning approaches, you will find lots of valuable information in this new article by @NancyW entitled Developing Future Workskills Through Content Curation.


In it she points to a study conducted last year, the Apollo Research Institute Future Workskills 2020, that identifies critical workskills needed for future jobs and how fitting "content curation" may be in cultivating and refining many of those.


She writes: "A closer look suggests that critical workforce skills identified in this \ study can be easily aligned with the skills practiced with content curation.


The skills a student employs to successfully curate information include curiosity, media literacy, ability to make connections across disciplines, information literacy, the ability to evaluate and understand perspective, synthesize and evaluate information, and a good dose of self-direction."


"Future Workskills 2020 suggests a monumental shift and change needs to begin now in our education system.


These skills can be developed through the process of content curation.


Content curation has the added benefit of helping students find their passions for and take ownership of their learning..."



Right on target. Recommended. 8/10

The Future of Universities Is In Becoming Masters of Curation

The Future of Universities Is In Becoming Masters of Curation | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Martin Smith, Chief Revenue Officer at Noodle, has written an interesting article highlighting how the future of universities is about to be completely transformed, and how, similarly to what is happening in the music industry, curators, or those organization acting in such role, will play a dramatically important role in the future of higher education.


Key factors that will make this a reality are:


  • The price of content will freefall over the next seven years.

  • The supply of learning content will swell.

  • Education will increasingly be personalized.
     

"Universities will be masters of curation, working as talent agencies. They’ll draw royalties and license fees from the content professors create and curate.

In many ways, the role of the best universities will become even more focused on identifying, investing in, and harvesting the returns from great talent."



Insightful. Right-on-the-mark. Must-read. 9/10

@Gilbert C FAURE: a few are, many not yet. But don't worry, if they are investing in planning for a sustainable future, not created only at the expense of paying students, they'll figure it out by themselves pretty soon.

Exciting article about the future of our universities! 

Olga Senognoeva's curator insight, August 12, 2014 4:39 AM

"... Как будет выглядеть будущее образования?


1. Цена содержания будет свободное падение в течение ближайших семи лет. Мы услышали первые раскаты прошлом году, когда Верховный суд постановил , что американские владельцы авторских прав не может остановить импорт и перепродавать, защищенных авторским правом контента легально продаются за рубежом, прокладывая путь для глобального рынка учебников.


2. Поставка учебных материалов будет набухать. Это может показаться нелогичным, но, как мы движемся в сторону глобального рынка за содержание, создатели будет цена берущих, не в состоянии командовать много переговорах, учитывая огромный размер распределительных платформ (думаю Itunes). В то время как это может сделать меньше смысла для профессора в Нью-Йорке, чтобы написать книгу, она делает много смысла для одного в Мумбаи.


3. Образование будет персональной. С содержания обучения предоставляется по требованию, студенты будут более иметь возможность строить программы на получение степени из широкого спектра учреждений, предлагающих особые курсы.
Университеты будут властвовать курирование, работая талантов агентств. Они нарисую роялти и лицензионные платежи от содержания профессора создания и хранения. Во многих отношениях, роль лучших университетов станет еще больше ориентирован на выявление, инвестируя в и уборки отдачу от большого таланта.


Студенты являются победителями здесь. Снижение стоимости содержания в сочетании с усилением конкуренции среди профессоров, и более низкой средней рентабельности для университетов в профессора, приведет к снижению затрат на обучение и больших профессоров choice.Great с междисциплинарных знаниях великих кураторов-увидим лицензии и лицензионных платежей подняться как они Команда эффект масштаба в распределении. Существующие институты с большими запасами станет лейблов: платформы, которые инвестируют в большой талант. И распределительные платформы, викария содержание будет делать хорошо, командуя как эффект масштаба и охвата."

An Introduction to Content Curation and Its Relevance For Students and Teachers



Robin Good's insight:



Stacia Johnson and Melissa Marsh have produced this 10-minute video introduction to Content Curation for their EDCI515 graduate course at the University of Victoria.


In this short clip they illustrate their own learning and discovery experience

with curation and where and how they see this practice being relevant and useful within educational contexts.


The video offers a very clear and understandable introduction to curation from a serious academic viewpoint.


Key topics covered:

  • Defining Curation
  • What skills needed
  • What tools can help


I would recommend it to anyone interested in learning what content curation is really about and getting a good overview of the how-to, tools and benefits involved.



Informative. Well-explained. 7/10

Content Curation: A Key Skill Needed By 21st-Century School Librarians

Content Curation: A Key Skill Needed By 21st-Century School Librarians | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: School librarians may be one of the new change-making roles in the educational revolution silently taking place. Their role as organizers, collectors and guides to relevant information is a skillset that is not only in growing demand by the marketplace, but which perfectly fits the learning needs of today students / tomorrow information workers.


Joyce Valenza and Shannon Miller, who recently presented at the Building Learning Communities conference, think that we are about to witness a "golden age" of librarianship and that there are five skills that information / school librarians need to cultivate.


The first of these is curation.


"Given the unprecedented quantity of information learners are exposed to, the librarian’s role is more important than ever.


Librarians help all students gain access to, evaluate, ethically use, create, share, and synthesize information.


...


Students have long documented their research in notebooks, bibliographies, and research papers, but the presenters described these containers as inadequate for the digital landscape.


In the 20th century, content was king, but in this millennium, curation has emerged as the new monarch.


Valenza and Miller highlighted emerging technologies that help students showcase their progress as they acquire, organize, contextualize, and archive both existing content and new learning.


...The presenters stressed the value of teaching learners to purposefully contribute to society’s collective intelligence.


...


School librarians, with their specialized training and background in collecting, organizing, preserving, and disseminating information, must now teach their patrons—students and educators alike—to perform these tasks."


Relevant. 7/10

Ken Morrison's comment, July 1, 2012 6:23 PM
I like that these will be seachable so that they can be shared. I'm excited to test drive this. I agree that it may be better than social bookmarking, because even a well-organized diggo tag will have things off topic or for some audiences because we all have different ideas of the meaning of a word used for tagging.
