I just read this post from Judy O’Connell – the creator of a blog about Web 2.0 advances called Heyjude. Having recently extolled the virtues of my personal aggregator, I found her comments about educators acting as “knowledge curators” for our students to be dead on. She even gives a “shout out” to Will Richardson!
“We need to read, gather, create, and deliver news and information far more creatively, as well as to teach the students to recognize what changes are happening in media reporting.
To help you think about it, drop on over to Will Richardson’s nice example of what a teacher (or student) can do, in his nice example of news delivery for Darfur via Pageflakes.”
