Curation: Creatively Filtering Content

Curation is a life skill and an important part of being digitally literate.  Educators need to know how to curate information so they can teach students how they can curate content for research, their interests and passion. As part of this process educators need to encourage students to curate information using techniques that address their own personal learning needs.

We introduce content curation using both Diigo and Scoop.it in our E-Learning for Educators class. It’s our firm belief that online teachers must be information fluent and that they teach those skills to their online students.

We also see these skills as a strong foundation for building personal learning networks.
