I am focusing on two lenses through which to look at learning remotely. [Of course they is so much more to consider for schools, administrators, teachers, parents and students…]
- Educators knowing how to teach remotely
- Students knowing how to learn remotely
Of course, we can simply assume and aim for our teaching and learning to stay the same as it would in our traditional face to face classrooms, but we would completely ignore the potential remote learning has to amplify learning.
We have an incredible opportunity (among the many tragedies for some and many inconveniences for others due to the virus) to dive into remote learning and jump light years ahead by conducting action research and gaining hands on experiences. Learning how to learn how to get fit for new forms of teaching and learning. It is an incredible opportunity to document these new forms of learning and collaboratively and “crowdsourcedly” (is that a new word?) redefine teaching and learning for the future.
The following word bank is a compilation of keywords and buzzwords, I have come across in my readings online (and in books) on the topic as well as crowdsourced contributions from my online network.
I am calling YOU to action! Are you up for it? How will you introduce, raise awareness, take on the challenge of CURATION as an educational urgency? Don’t see it as “yet another thing to add to your plate”, but be creative in connecting the skills and content you “need to teach anyway” to curation skills and amplify teaching and learning.

The eye is honed to be aware of details, filter and discern opportunities to capture learning.
It has me reflecting upon the association between documentation and book.. It has me wondering if ‘capturable’ is in the mind? Really should read your
