Two quick flicks this week...
(1) What is curation?
This week we are learning the exciting digital skill of curation. In this brief video we hear from some experienced curators about why curation is important, and what makes a good curator.
You can make the video full screen with the button on the bottom right.
(2) Professor Alec Couros: the connected teacher and making learning visible.
Here is a video of a 12 minute talk by Dr Alec Couros, a professor of educational technology and media at the University of Regina in Canada. Alec came to Deakin last month and attended our Personal Learning Environments conference organised by Joyce Seitzinger in the Faculty of Health. You can follow Alec on Twitter @courosa
Here Alec is interviewed by author, professor and internet pioneer Howard Rheingold. Alec describes the Learning Project he undertook with his students, where students connect and form networks, then make visible, share and document their learning.
He asks his students to consider:
- "how are you making your learning visible?" and
- "how are you contributing to the learning of others?"
