So for teachers and librarians it comes down to keeping up the pace in adopting these strategies and using tools to publish curated content in the sense of ‘reporting’ what’s happening. So as a teacher and librarian I see myself doing these things:
curating my own content for myself (my own ‘go-to’ repository with tools like Diigo, Delicious, Evernote, Pinboard, Vodpod, Flickr, RSS readers etc.
- sharing this first level curation because my online tools are socially connected
- curating content for others via targetted tweets or Google+ circles, Facebook pages, Facebook groups, wikis, livebinders, etc. (Does Paper.li fit in here seeing as it is automated?)
- sharing this second level curation as a direct extension of the first level of personal curation.
Now I can see a reason for educators to move into third level curation as a form of info-media publishing.
