Curation in education

Curation – The Musical. Yes, it exists.

Curation is undoubtedly THE buzz word in education circles these days, but the concept is not new.  Teacher-librarians have been “curating” content for eons, as have most classroom teachers – but in the 21st Century, curating has gone digital.

There are a myriad of curation tools and websites, blogs, videos and device-friendly applications to assist the curator in us all.  Curating is not just making a list, or collecting random gems of information. It is purposeful, crafted and must make meaning for the user/curator.

Here is a list of 5 valuable Curation Tools you might like to check out:
