Content Curation Strategies for Digital Learning

In our digitally connected world, most of us have become curators of content as we utilize the technology tools in our pockets to interact with each other. We practice curation for both personal and professional reasons by saving our favorite links, images, videos, and other resources, which we have either found ourselves or have been shared with us. In turn, we usually share this curated content with each other through social media, email, text messages, etc. We can then carefully curate the information that we assemble and organize on social media, as it collectively becomes our representation of our digital selves. Even this blog is another example of curation, as I often include the links to other sources that I find valuable, and arrange my thoughts, ideas, and illustrations into a cohesive whole.

The SAFARI Montage LOR as the Foundation of a Learning Community

Digital Age CollaborationDuring the practice of the art and science of teaching, teachers are constantly engaged in designing resources to improve the learning experiences and achievement of their students. Depending on the culture of the school, teachers often share these lesson plans, ideas, and activities with the teachers next door or across the hall of the school building. This collaboration helps everyone focus on individual strengths, and students and teachers benefit from this shared expertise.

How Sweet it is…..A Story about Leadership & Learning in San Diego Unified School District

Not too long ago, I received an email from my contact at San Diego Unified School District asking if I could meet with their Leadership & Learning Department about a challenge they were struggling with. I walked into that meeting slightly anxious as I had never met the administrators in this department before. Even the name Leadership and Learning sounds worthy of respect.
