Proposal – Knowledge Networking Artefact

Proposed topic: Content curation for senior students

Proposed digital tools and/or spaces:

Brief description of nature of artefact:

This artefact will introduce senior secondary students (years 10-12) to content curation, the ability to organise, categorise, tag, present and share content (Tolisano, 2011). The artefact will present a range of tools that students can use to filter and make sense of vast amounts of information that they are exposed to through digital networks. The artefact will be used by teacher librarians during research and information literacy classes and be made available online.

Assignment plan:

  • Conduct a literature search (week 5)
  • Using my preferred curation tool Pearltrees, curate relevant resources from internet search, social networks, and literature search (week 5 and 6)  
  • Converse with students about how they bookmark, aggregate and curate resources for school and personal interests outside of school. To be used as quotes in the video (week 5 and 6)
  • Synthesise the information curated (week 7)
  • Create a storyboard of images, clips and narration for the video (week 7)
  • Just-in-time learning of specific features of Adobe Spark using tutorials and help (week 5 onwards)
  • Compile and narrate the video with my own voice (week 8 and possibly week 9)

    Hi Karen,
    This sounds really well organised and like a great idea! I like that you are incorporating a range of tools.

    Thanks Lisa.
    Julie also suggested applying a theme. I have decided to use a messy, disorganised wardrobe or pile of clothes on the floor to structure the narrative of curation. I have discovered that wardrobe curation is a thing too!–curated-wardrobe-6616.html
