  4. How Much Information Growth? “From 2005 to 2020, the digital universe will grow by a factor of 300, from 130 exabytes to 40,000 exabytes, or 40 trillion gigabytes (more than 5,200 gigabytes for every man, woman, and child in 2020). From now until 2020, the digital universe will about double every two years.” -Reported by John Gantz and David Reinsel of the International Data Corporation in their report “The Digital Universe in 2020”

  5. Human Filter Needed!

  6. Curators

  7. Collecting vs. Curating

  8. Thinking Level • Collecting • Classifying • Lower Level of Blooms • Curating • Synthesis –Evaluation • Higher Level of Blooms

  9. Process • Collecting • Not a lot of depth in collecting process • Examples: Pinterest, Facebook • Somewhat random process • Curating • “Cherry-Picked” • Synthesizing, Interpreting, Evaluating • Theme & Context • Disciplined, purposeful, continuous process of inquiry

  10. Organization • Collecting • Thematic • Curating • Thematic AND Contextual • Includes real-world examples & uses

  11. Value • Collecting • Meets a personal interest • Value to collector • Quantity matters • Curating • Meets a learning goal • Value to collector and other learners • QUALITY matters

  12. Audience • Collecting • Not necessarily shared • Curating • Arranged, annotated and published somewhere • Available to the general public –beyond the life of a particular “course” • Shared

  18. Curating by Teachers • Aligned to content standards and curriculum • Deeper understanding of the “why” to pass on to students • Dialogue: Learning is social • Connect with community of learners

  19. Value to Students • Easy access • Easy to discuss & share • Extension of learning outside classroom “walls” • Relevance

  20. Looking for even more value for students?

  21. Let Students do the Curating! • Higher level thinking • Students in role of teacher • Constructing knowledge • Enduring understanding • Making connections • Content • Experts • Active, engaged learning!

  22. Skills Identified in Workforce 2020

  23. #BeyondtheTextbook When you think of what might come after the textbook –what do you think it might be?

  24. #beyond the textbook • “I imagine a techbook looking like a science notebook or journal. It would be a place where students can take notes, pin articles and videos, record experiments and discussions or lectures, organize data tied to these experiences sketch out ideas in words and pictures, and send and receive emails or other messages.” -Marybeth Hertz

  25. #beyond the textbook • “For me, going beyond the textbook means giving students a toolbox rather than an instruction manual…So what would a student see when they first opened such a book? It’s blank.” -Frank Noschese

  26. Tools

  27. Research in the Common Core “Research—both short, focused projects (such as those commonly required in the workplace) and longer term in depth research —is emphasized throughout the standards but most prominently in the writing strand.” From Key Points in the ELA Standards. Available

  28. Research in the Common Core “Students are to be given extensive practice with short, focused research projects. Writing Standard 7 emphasizes that students should conduct several short research projects in addition to more sustained research efforts. Materials should require several of these short research projects annually to enable students to repeat the research process many times and develop the expertise needed to conduct research independently. A progression of shorter research projects also encourages students to develop expertise in one area by confronting and analyzing different aspects of the same topic as well as other texts and source materials on that topic.” From Publisher’s Criteria for the Common Core Standards. Available

  29. Prepared Graduate Competencies in Reading, Writing, and Communicating

  30. World Languages

  31. World Languages

  32. Visual Arts

  33. Social Studies

  34. Math • Prepared graduates in mathematics: • Apply transformation to numbers, shapes, functional representations, and data • Use critical thinking to recognize problematic aspects of situations, create mathematical models, and present and defend solutions

  35. Helping students master 21st century skills?

  36. STRATEGY? Curating!

  37. First Step: Wonder…Questioning “As long as schools are primarily about teaching rather than learning, there is little need for expanded information capabilities. Considering the reality that schools and publishers have spent decades compressing and compacting human knowledge into efficient packages and delivery systems like textbooks and lectures, they may not be prepared for this New Information Landscape which calls for independent thinking, exploration, invention and intuitive navigation.
