C.R.A.A.P connections

Regardless of your discipline, you are concerned with learners’ understanding of their limited privacy online.

  • Evaluate the potential of “Hot on your trail: Privacy, your data, and who has access to it” using the C.R.A.A.P test.
  • Use the online form to record your C.R.A.A.P evaluation of the resource.
  • Check colleagues’ scores to compare evaluations.
  • Apply the CRAAP test to the resources that you chose for your contribution to our shared Padlet https://padlet.com/french_peg/CurationCreation when you were exploring the repositories.
  • Use the CRAAP test to evaluate the resources for currency, relevance, authority, accuracy, purpose. If any of them “fail” the CRAAP try to find another one to replace it.
  • Now that you have deemed the resource worthy, annotate each resource, using “Add comment”. Briefly explain how you would use this resource in your course.
  • Peruse some of the contributions that are already there. Feel free to add constructive comments to their curated creations.
  • Write a reflective blog post about the resources that you have chosen, the ways that you will use them in your course, and what you might curate next. Tweet a link to the blog with #oextend.

  • OER! (Pamela Koski Bryant, @BryantKoski)

  • Fun with acronyms (Melanie Lefebvre, @ProfMelLefebvre)

    Instructions: “Apply the CRAAP test to the resources that you chose. . .” I put my resources to the test and realized it would be back to the drawing board as one of them did not pass. It’s still up on my Padlet for viewing purposes but a new one has been added that got through security.

  • Insert CRAAP-y Title Here (Mel Young, @melyoung00)

    I continue my original OER blog post with my CRAAP test and reflective blog post here.

  • Oh CRAAP (Sidney, @data_professor)

    This post is going to deal with CRAAP, currency, relevance, authority, accuracy, purpose. Specifically we are going to deal with an issue around open source tools in class. In my program, we sometimes want to make students aware of a particular piece of software, but not each an entire course about it. When looking at… Read more »

  • Is it C.R.A.A.P.? (Steven Secord, @stevensecord)

    The Be Internet Awesome resource provided by Google could potentially have some issues when looked at through the CRAAP lens. In this blog post I do just that and you might be surprised by what my conclusions were.

  • Four Moves to keep it REAL (Helen DeWaard, @hj_dewaard)

    This blog post explores how curating resources as an educator takes more moves than just detecting CRAAP. An added layer includes examining the ‘trustworthiness’ of the source and resource. Educators also need to analyze whether the resources are useful, in full or part, for the students, course and content they are teaching. The four moves… Read more »
