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."

Beyond Collecting and Sharing: Twitter as a Curation Tool

Beyond Collecting and Sharing: Twitter as a Curation Tool | Content Curation World | Scoop.it



Robin Good's insight:



What's the difference between "collecting" and "curating"? How can Twitter be used as a "curation" tool?


What are some examples and ideas to put real-time news curation to effective use for those working as educators?


In this good article by Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano (published 1/2012) of Langwitches.org, you can find lots of useful info about the use of Twitter as a curation tool.


Here for example are a few key benefits of using Twitter for picking, selecting and organizing content on a specific topic:


"

  1. Taking advantage of a network of curators working for you (building your own customized network), consuming their curated information

  2. Collecting, organizing, connecting, attributing, interpreting,
    summarizing the vast amount of information that comes across your desk/ feed /books/articles/etc. for YOURSELF

  3. Becoming consciously the curator for others for a particular niche, area of expertise or interest. Disseminate resources, add value, put in perspective, create connections, present in a different light/media/language.

  4. Real time curation allows you to be part of an event, that you physically might not be attending or being on the opposite end allows you to be the bridge for others to participate at an event where you are present, but your network is not."


I think that she's right on the mark.



Well presented article and info. Useful. Good examples. 8/10

By using lists lists and hash tags effectively twitter can be u useful curation tool. Storify another mentioned in this article could also be a useful tool to curate twitter content

Andreas Kuswara's comment, June 11, 2013 9:22 PM
I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.

Curation and Creation Over Pedagogy and Classical Education

Curation and Creation Over Pedagogy and Classical Education | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: What is it more important?


To refine a science of how to transmit, explain and illustrate what "needs to be known" or that we empower learners to create their own learning direction, approach, scaffolding and pace, by providing them with the ability to "drive" and "build" their learning value and not by having them become open sponges that memorize and comprehend what we offer them?


From the original article by Dominik Lukes: "A self-directed, self-motivated learner, will take any resources (no matter how pedagogically naive or badly instructionally designed – Khan Academy, iTunesU lectures, iPad ebooks, labs, conventional classes or TED videos) and use them to learn.


As the learner becomes more aware of their own learning (gaining metacognitive skills), they will look for resources that suit their learning better. And, in many cases, will create such resources.


That’s why we need to encourage a culture of the remix. Or in starker terms: Curation and creation over education."


Rightful. 7/10
