Robin Good in Content Curation Guide

Content curation will play a major role both in the way we "teach" and in the way we educate ourselves on any topic. When and where it will be adopted, it will deeply affect many key aspects of the educational ecosystem. content-curation-education-learning-430-ss-69341932.jpg Photo credit: Red horizontal floral - Shutterstock This article, builds up over my recent presentation on Content Curation for Education that I delivered at Emerge2012 virtual conference. In that presentation I claimed that the adoption of "curation approaches" will directly affect the way competences are taught, how textbooks are put together, how students are going to learn about a subject, and more than anything, the value that can be generated for "others" through a personal learning path. If we learn not by memorizing facts, but by collaborating with others in the creation of a meaningful collection-explanations of specific topics/issues/events then, for the first time in history, we can enrich planetary knowledge each time we take on a new learning task. And it's already happening. Yes, we are only at the very early stages, but, in my humble opinion, there are enough signs and indications that this is not going to be something marginal. In this article I outline ten key factors, already at work, which, among others, will very likely pave the way for a much greater and rapid adoption of curation practices in the educational / academic world.
