EdTech 543: Curation in Action!

Standard

Artifact Introduction:

During our fifth week in our Social Networking class, we were asked to explore curation by:

  • Developing a checklist of 15 to 20 criteria that will serve as a tool for assessing the quality & value of an education-related curated topic with our PLN.
  • Using a curation tool like Scoopit, Educlipper, LessonPaths, PearlTrees, Livebinders, etc. curate a topic (with 25 resources) of our choice, applicable to our content areas and/or grade level.
  •  Post it on any platform (Facebook, Blog post) so both us & our mini-PLN group can give feedback to one another using the criteria we developed.
  • Self-assess the value of our own curation using all of our group’s curation criteria in our assessment (& post the results in the comments section where we posted our link to the Curated Topic)
  • Assess our group members curation’s using the same checklist & ensuring that we again, use all of our group’s curation criteria in our assessment, noting what was especially noteworthy & also what needs further development/tweaking.

Artifact 2: Self-Assessment using Curation Criteria

Reflection:

The process my PLN used to create this checklist was very smooth running. One of our group members (Katie) initiated action and decide upon a (fantastic & creative) theme for our checklist because she wanted to complete the assignment sooner than later. We used Google Docs, E-mail, and Facebook Messenger to communicate. We created our Curation Criteria using Google Docs & posting our work in different colors to see exactly what we were doing and then it was streamlined and revised by each of us individually to share with the class. I think our PLN will work well together on future projects & I am excited to see our growth as a network.

Standard Connection:

AECT Standard 1.2 Using:In order to create the content curation I needed to select and use technological resources and processes by conducting research on curation and applying it to curate. I did this to learn how to and provide information for others on how to effectively support student learning and to enhance our pedagogies.

AECT Standard 4.3 Reflection on Practice: In order to create my content curation I needed to  analyze and interpret the curation criteria data that my PLN compiled and ensure that my content curation reflected the effectiveness of the design, development and implementation of technology-supported instruction and learning to enhance my own & others professional growth.

Standard Connection:

AECT Standard 1.2 Using:In order to create the curation criteria artifact I needed to demonstrate the ability to select and use technological resources and processes by conducting research on curation and the criteria to most effectively support student learning and to enhance my pedagogy.

AECT Standard 4.1 Collaborative Practice: In order to create the curation criteria artifact I needed to collaborate with my peers in my PLN and utilize information and ideas from subject matter experts. I did this to develop criteria for curation that will later have a  positive impact on learners.
