Curating with Twitter

Yesterday we explored the idea of curating for an audience.

How do we do this on Twitter?

Today’s learning comes from our “30 Days to Connected Leadership” series.  Please click on the image below, and follow the learning on that site.

This post has several rich resources on how we can share valuable learning with each other.

Langwitches blog is another site that is particularly useful for thinking deeply about this topic.

As we consider how our learning about self-directed learning changes our thinking, how does this impact our classroom work?  Educator Julie Balen reflects on this here.

How can you leverage your presence on Twitter to take ownership of your own professional learning?  How can you be a valuable contributor to the professional learning of others?

Follow the #BIT15 hashtag over the next three days to see how educators use social note taking to share their learning with others.

Week 3: Digging Into Curation

As we work through this week, we are looking at a digital literacy skill called curation.

Briefly stated, curation allows us to share resources that we feel are valuable to our practice.  When others curate resources, the wide stream of information on the web is filtered for your personal needs.

In order to get the idea behind “curation” as an important digital literacy skill, we ask you to refer to and read – from our November series – Day 9: Beginning to Share Content,

and Day 12:  A Deeper Look at Curation in Professional Practice.

As a challenge, consider the kind of information you are looking for in your professional life, and the kind of information that you would be able to share back to others with similar needs and interests.
