Digital Curation: Putting the Pieces Together Through digital curation we collect, manage and collate the best, most relevant content, on a specific topic or theme, for ourselves and share with others. Using tools like Scoop.it, Pinterest, Diigo and Livebinders educators collect the best resources to put them into context with organisation, annotation and presentation. This post is a summary of the ideas. tips and resources shared during my presentation for the 2013 Reform Symposium e-Conference on digital curation.

CIA Releases Declassified Documents to National Archives The Office of Public Affairs (OPA) is the single point of contact for all inquiries about the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Project Libellus Cui dono... Welcome to project Libellus, an ongoing attempt to provide a library of classical Latin (and Greek) texts with minimal redistribution restrictions. The archive is physically located at the University of Washington, Seattle, and is currently being run by Konrad Schroder and Owen Ewald. The intent of the project is to make available fairly good-quality texts at no cost; it is not to provide guaranteed top quality texts. If you are willing to pay for extreme quality, there are other organizations that will allow you to do that. The texts that we supply (rather than mirror) are either those donated to us (or released into the Public Domain) by the editor, or those whose copyright has expired, and so are in the Public Domain.

Content curation in education I believe it would be a total waste of time to begin this post with my own definition of content curation. Since there are so many definitions that could explain this phenomenon, I decided to pick my favorite from the list of content curation definitions maintained by Robin Good (in my opinion – a guru of content curation). So, content curator “isn’t just someone who can find great “stuff” ,though it is an important skill in process of content curation. A curator is someone who creates a specific experience by using the found objects and contextualizes those objects within a limited space. A curator not only collects and interprets, but houses that work to create unique experiences.” If I interpret this definition within education context, an educator should provide a unique learning experience by curating existing learning materials or resources.
