Boot Camp 2016 Goals
Students will explore Primary Sources in the 21st Century School Library with an emphasis on integrating research and social studies standards.
This class will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools
Test drive a few of the free curation tools described in this session. Share your responses to using these tools. How might you use these in practice? Which would be useful to introduce to teachers? Which would be useful for student researchers?
