First Fruits of the Knowledge Garden: Student Designed and Curated Learning

Presentation Published 7/27/11 Last updated on 2/28/20
Presenter: James Kinney, George Brown College Increasingly, education experts are recognizing the value of a model of engagement in which students collaborate with strategic partners to help solve community problems. Knowledge is captured, refined, designed, curated, and passed on as a legacy to help new partnerships in problem-solving. This is the modus operandi of the Knowledge Garden, an ongoing project since 2003 that will formally launch in May 2011. It is a new model for learning that recognizes the need to redefine roles in teaching and learning. At this session, these key topics will be examined: - Adaptation strategy for rapid obsolescence and pervasive innovation: Collapsing the Technology Diffusion Curve using the RISK-based Teaching Model - Distributed, non-hierarchal learning - Social creation and curation of knowledge - Process Knowledge versus Artefact Creation

This presentation was part of the Adobe Education Exchange Live event that took place on July 27, 2011.
