Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
I launch CRED project after my web 2.0 project was finalist, runner up in Elearning Awards 2010 http://bitly.com/web20projectfinalistinElearningAwards . I launch web 2.0 project after I was coordinator in the module proposed by me called ,, How teachers and students can use free web 2.0 and social media in education “ and all the resources were posted on TeachToday website and presented in 22nd October 2010 at Safer Internet Forum in Luxembourg organised by the European Schoolnet and European Comission . CRED project was launch because I discover last year that is a new Social Media King around the web in the online world and this is Curation like described Steve Roseumban in his book ,, Curation Nation “ . Curation adding value for humansvbecause they do what no computer possibly achieve and for this reason is Next Big Thing in online world and the Art of : searching, selecting, sharing/bookmarking , organizing, interaction, communication . The Internet Curator's role is to seek on the web information related to a specific domain, filter them, select them, organise, share and present them in a unique way . In XXI Century Society where informatics and science developed spectacular and the use of new technologies aren’t regarded like a avangardist movement new tools and apps Web 2.0 and social media can bring a new dimension and can reform education around the world because electronic communication helps teachers and students to learn from each other. These new tehnologies can stimulate discussion, open gateway through knowledge, promote creativity and innovation for effective learning. Teacher and also students should have an entitlement to safe internet access at all times. Pulling Piaget and Papert , the use of participatory media tools in education is typically geared towards, creating a more student centered, adaptive environnement where learners can contribute to the course material, formulate and express their own insights and opinion, construct their own understanding of material by connecting concepts, to personal experience or current events, and learn from one another in collaborative environments . Web 2.0 , social media and other digital and information tehnologies are powerful and interesting tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone and for this reason teachers and students must know how to use it nowadays in a safety mode.
I try to make a platform for romanian teachers to implement CRED project, but for this I need founds . For this reason I apply in national competition Restart in Educatie with other 82 projects http://www.restartedu.ro/
project/proiectul-cred-%E2%80%9C-curation-restarteaz%C4%83-educa%C5... and unfortunatelly was only on 27 place after public vote and only top 20 went further in the competition see http://bitly.com/top20projects . But I hope in the close future to find people who want to support ,, Curation restart education “ project who will open gateway to knowledge for romanian teachers and who was launch from passion of use of new free online techonologies , tools and apps web 2.0 and social media who can be successfully integrated in the classroom .
