The refreshed ISTE Standards for students call for students to be Knowledge Constructors, "Students critically curate a variety of resources using digital tools to construct knowledge, produce creative artifacts and make meaningful learning experiences for themselves and others." What does this mean? How do you get them there? This presentation can help you develop a deeper understanding of what curating means, and how it can help students own their learning.

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.

  5. 5. 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.

  24. 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. 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

  30. 30. WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAID ABOUT CURATING 8TH GRADE SOCIAL STUDIES: SOCIAL REFORM MOVEMENTS OF THE LATE 19TH CENTURY
  31. 31. "Difference between curating &collecting research to me is that when you curate research, you have the passion to learn."
  32. 32. “My thinking on learning has changed a bit. I suddenly feel like learning isn’t a chore, it’s an opportunity that can open so many doors!”
  33. 33. "This project has given me a new respect for bloggers who curate their research because it is hard."
  34. 34. "With curating you're becoming engrossed in your topic. You know anything & everything about it. You can talk about it with personality & passion"
  35. 35. :"Curating you are using heart. You use emotion and find passion to do that certain job or write about that certain topic."
  36. 36. “A project doesn't have to be stale and boring, it can be fun, you can really care about what you are writing."
  37. 37. “A curator paints with words. They describe what they are talking about so well that it doesn't even have to be there for you to see it.“
  38. 38. Another student's definition of a curator: "Someone who goes into the details of something to find its "back story"
  39. 39. "A curator is someone who puts back the history into something tries to find the story or background from where or what it is truly from."
  40. 40. "The only thing I would have liked to do differently would be given more time to learn even more about the topics."
