How Curation Can Be Used To Teach Critical Thinking, Analysis and Expression Online

How Curation Can Be Used To Teach Critical Thinking, Analysis and Expression Online | Content Curation World |
Robin Good's insight:

How can content curation be used in education to support and enhance the development of new media literacy skills?

Paul Mihailidis from the Department of Marketing Communication at Emerson College in tandem with James N Cohen from the School of Communication at Hofstra University, have outlined six different ways in which content curation can be utilized as a key methodology to develop critical thinking, analysis and communication skills.

Their analysis is based on the actual use of Storify, a content curation tool, for specific educational objectives.

Useful as a reference framework for introducing content curation within pedagogical programmes. 8/10

Curation can be used as an authentic activity with many disciplines to enable students to critically evaluate resources for a common interest. Would like to hear more about discipline based projects.

Curation and Creation Over Pedagogy and Classical Education

Curation and Creation Over Pedagogy and Classical Education | Content Curation World |

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
