Technology is allowing for individuals to be more connected and more able to collaborate and offer knowledge value through a multitude of self-curation tools and services.
There is the xAPI Learning Record Store (LRS) that is leading the change towards a more self-focused yet hugely collaborative medium of learning interchange. The ability to link this functionality to a CPD Plan where individual ideas can be shared and expanded upon will definitely revolutionise the concept of learning and tracking of one’s career path.
Let’s look at the 10 current reasons for content curation:
Preserving instructional time
More effective resource utilisation
Promoting equity amongst contributors
Supporting online safety
Saving money & resources
Nurturing a sense of community
Ensuring content quality
Protecting digital rights
Providing greater access to content
Now add one more:
11. Providing a direct link between an individual’s professional career progression & assessment and the wider contributor network.
We believe that assessment of knowledge within a CPD Plan and linked with social curation (including videos, snippet information, etc) will transform individuals and businesses in the coming century.
Are there other aspects we are missing here?
Are we right?
