Education Curation Tools - Case Studies

Goals

To determine what tools educators use to collect and curate resources to share with their students by providing four case studies of such tools and the pros and cons of using them.

Early Findings

Jamboard

  • Leeds College's Head of Independent Learning Steven Hope used Jamboard as a tool to promote collaboration and curation among its student and teachers.
  • Hope regards content curation as the fifth 'C' among the four C's of education, including "creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration."
  • To enhance the school's objectives of collaboration and curation, Leed's College added eight Jamboards to its independent learning zones and some curriculum programs, including "math, sports and coaching, and special education."
  • The Jamboards allowed students to add images, documents, and sticky notes to each jam they create. For example, "a teacher in a sports class can create training plans on a Jamboard and add images showing football training exercises."
  • Using Jamboard, teachers browse the internet and add content in real-time. Once the teachers save their jams, students can have easy access to them by logging into G Suite. According to Hope, "it's a new way to present knowledge."

Goals

  • The project's goals were to "help teachers and students curate content, enable student-led learning, and give teachers and students tools to inspire creativity."

Results

  • Using Jamboard, Leeds College successfully "guided students through the problem-solving process, added content from Google Drive and the web to presentations, and inspired students to share their projects with classmates."
