What is digital curation?

And yet, with mobile devices replacing paper notebooks, this process has become increasingly complex as students (and teachers) struggle to apply previous strategies to new tools. In the past, I wrote about the 4Ss of Note Taking With Technology.

A few years ago, the term "curation" would have conjured up images of art galleries but now I associate it with conversations about the future of education. And yet . . . I'm really drawn toward an archaic definition of the term. It originally had a much more earthy, even gritty, connotations. Teaching Content Curation Skills To Students In my last piece, I discussed why content curation was an essential skill and discussed ways teachers could use Pinterest to curate content for students.

Many of the best and most popular programs for this are widely available for free online.
OER and you. The curation mandate At the #GoOpen Exchange on Friday, everyone was talking about OER and the need to curate. The Twiter feed shows the buzz around the trending event and it shows school librarians were at the table. As the initiative moves forward, it is critical for us to choose to be at the head of this particular table. Hosted at the beautiful Skywalker Ranch, Friday’s #GoOpen Exchange engaged major players in education from the White House and the DOE, as well as state officials, leaders of non-profits and learning institutions, the biggest names in e-commerce and technology, developers, vendors, publishers, state officials, administrators, leading folks in edtech, and educational thinkers and practitioners.
