Being a digital curator

Being a digital curator

bedside

Digital information as seen from this home photo surrounds some families in everyday living whereas digital curation allows a person with a focused interest on a specific topic to find and collect artifacts on the Internet to share with their target audience.

(Flintoff, Mellow & Clark, 2014)

Digital literacy including but not subject to smart: phones/boards, tablets, laptops and desktop PC’s can encompass group work, individual assignments, artistic expression with Prezi or Piktochart for example, common communication or broader community collaboration.

As Jennifer Howell mentions digital communication can be multifaceted, text hyperlinked to video presentations or audio cues therefore, not just linear word-based conveyance of information. To be able to extract this information critically and teaching students’ due diligence of going to the source of the information not just skimming what has already been skimmed. Published articles and Blog traffic indicators can help with credibility to some degree. Building a student’s integrity (correct referencing) for their lifelong digital development will enable a loyal clientele base if they choose that kind of social pathway.                                                                                                  (Howell, 2012)

due-diligence-best-practices-and-pitfalls-4-638Teaching through visual, verbal, and kinetic methods in a tech theatre might also be fun. Dancing Computer at Michigan State University College of Engineering, Cross curricular activities of science (technology) and art (drama) implemented in a STEAM programme for example.  (LaBonté, 2010)

Digital information can be evaluated formally through educational institutions in both formative and summative assessment modes. Aesthetics can also resonate personally with design and how information can be succinctly extracted.

Pinterest and Scoop are methods of collaboratively curating. Alan Pollock from Curtin University mentioned Pinterest is tied to pictures whereas Scoop involves saving web documents as well as images. The crowd-sourcing component can spread the load to some degree, although it is common for a few key individuals to drive the entire process when a collection is a group undertaking.

It can be humorous in understanding the link of who pinned her pins, or who repined what he, she or it pinned and what was originally pinned in the first place 😊

Final reflection

These are my working websites from 2004, as you can see just three out of the nine are still working
www.opoeia.com.au (not really)
www.resonant-temple.com no
www.earthcore.com.au yes
www.comune.bronte.ct.it yes
www.psy-harmonics.com.au no
www.realmofsenses.com no
www.exoticnative.com no
www.greenant.com no
highheaven.net yes
This gives a kind of transient scope through which to view our world wide web. Interestingly I did a mini-research following my colleague Simon Ford’s defunct realm of senses site in which it said that the owner was selling it.

Thank you for your reply.
We are on opposite time zones. I emailed you the price quote earlier. It may have gone to your spam folder. The seller is asking $2,471 USD. Please reply and let me know you received it as well as how you would like to proceed or if there are any questions.
I look forward to hearing back and assisting you.

It brings to mind a grain of salt regarding digital awareness 😊
Around the time of 2004 one could tweak their hi5 account tailoring modules and widgets in a similar way that wordpress lets you customize today although more basic. My domain highheaven.net recently expired and the DIY platform with https://www.communilink.net never felt user friendly enough to update “on the fly” ….these days it seems communication and office work is often done on public transport or at Grandmother in laws. So therefore, when Curtin suggested wordpress is was great to see that I could link my unused domain which is such a bonus.
Content sourced from scoopit has been put at the end of the blog which makes gathering information about a given topic ever so efficient 😊
As a storyteller and drama teacher I get the feeling that students have a different concept of timeline sequencing when it comes to the digital age as there seems not to be a beginning nor end and perhaps it doesn’t matter when researching and collating information for a project or school assignment, however as educators I feel it is necessary to provide this type of framework and structure within student’s digital education.

Chalk and talk experiment

HMCI’s Primary and Secondary Curriculum research. There is no need to totally eradicate chalk and talk as it clearly has it’s uses in a summative assessment programme as seen by the UK experiment above, perhaps more of a symbiosis between student centered pedagogy.
