Content curation is a three-part process:
Seek, Sense, and Share.
Harold Jarche’s “Seek, Sense, Share” model for self-directed professional learning. The framework works well for content curation.
Micah Sifry, TechPresident Co-Founder and Editor, shares his thoughts about why online curation is becoming more important
Buffy Hamilton talks about working with High School students and helping them work together to curate and reflect on scholarly content from research databases like EBSCOhost and Gale with curation tools into their PLE.
Curation - is it the new search tool (Valenza 2011), the new search (Good 2012), the future of Web 2.0 (Boyd 2010), or the new black (O'Connell 2012)? What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning?
