I am calling YOU to action! Are you up for it? How will you introduce, raise awareness, take on the challenge of CURATION as an educational urgency? Don’t see it as “yet another thing to add to your plate”, but be creative in connecting the skills and content you “need to teach anyway” to curation skills and amplify teaching and learning.
Silvia Rosenthal Talisano discusses the importance of curation in the classroom. To support this, she provides a number of platforms and practices to use in the classroom. Personally, in regards to a curation space, I have taken to using a blog to collect together all my ideas. Although there were a number of features I liked about Diigo, there is something about the ability to link various ideas. Although still in their infancy, I look forward to a time when we can use mixture of micropub/sub applications to curate and connect from our own spaces.
