9:15 am – 11:15 am
With Stevan Kalmon & Becky Russell
The 2016 ISTE Standards propose that students, as constructors of knowledge, have the ability to “critically curate a variety of resources using digital tools to construct knowledge, produce creative artifacts and make meaningful learning experiences for themselves and others.” But what, exactly, does it mean to curate? And, how is critical curation different from collecting information and conventional student research projects? How can we design meaningful curation experiences that will fuel learner passion and build learning communities? Participants in this interactive workshop will develop and apply the mindset of a curator in designing a curation project for their students and/or communities.
