The Office of eLearning, with the help of the Rockstars of Curation, has been traveling the state to offer Digital Content Curation Workshops throughout the 2015-2016 school year. These workshops are intended to support beginning districts and teachers who are just starting down the digital learning path. Teachers are given the opportunity to learn about digital resource vetting, organization, distribution, and responsible use. Teachers are also encouraged to take what they learn and share with their colleagues. Our goal is to grow this network of teachers and encourage collaboration within districts and across the state. While the work of curating digital content is on-going, working together makes the load lighter.
Along with the Digital Content Curation Workshops, the Rockstars of Curation will expand their skill sets as they participate in a two day workshop on Teaching with Primary Sources sponsored by the Library of Congress in the spring of 2016. The Library’s primary resources are all digitized and available online for all teachers to use for free! Be on the lookout for newly created digital learning activities using primary sources.
If you are interested in participating in future professional development around the topic of digital content curation, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org. More learning opportunities will be available over the summer of 2016 and the school year of 2016-2017.
