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.



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


Librarian, Librarian,


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!

This is very insightful when creating an effective, authentic and reliable curation collection.  It is resources like this one that I feel will benefit others in their teaching and learning journey.

Dorothy Minor's curator insight, July 8, 2013 3:29 PM

This infographic provides insight into showing how to enhance learning. Critical thinking is an important skill in today's world. Students need encouragement in taking ownership of their own learning. We can find ways to encourage students from this link.

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

New Teachers Should Become Content Curators: Curtis Bonk

Robin Good: Curtis Bonk, professor emeritus at Indiana University, shares in this interview I did with him two years ago, what he thinks are the new skills required to teachers of the 21st century to leverage the power of the Internet for learning. And curation is among them.

Mayra Aixa Villar's comment, February 5, 2012 11:38 AM
Many thanks for sharing this, Robin! I couldn´t agree more with the prediction that 21st century education will definitely need "super e-coaches" with 3 characteristics (1) domain expertise, (2) a deep understanding of the Internet for learning and teaching purposes and (3) counselling skills. If we, as teachers, are able to perform this task, this, in turn, can also serve as a model for our students so they can develop themselves the necessary skills to integrate and make sense of the vast information available. Skills that they will certainly need for their future.

Thank you Mayra! Glad to be on the same wavelength!
