Content Curation for Teaching and Learning
The content curator is emerging as an important role in the 21st century.
Content curation is the process of sorting through information online, selecting the bits of the highest quality or relevance to a particular need, providing an interpretive context for that information, and sharing it with others.
While this phenomenon not primarily academic, it has broad implications for learning and represents an opportunity for teachers and students in every discipline.
This presentation will cover the following.
* The concept of content curation: What it is and why it matters for teaching and learning.
* New tools (and some old ones) that can streamline the content curation task.
* Best practices.
* Practical applications for teaching and learning.
