"On her blog, Nancy White did a great job detailing the various levels at which Curation adds value. And how it differs from collecting.
A Learning & Innovation specialist, she also greatly outlines how curation and education are a great fit," says Neli Maria Mengalli.
I agree and for me, the whole post is interesting as a great analysis of the value of curation in increasing knowledge in a community, in this case an educational community.
I think the emphasis Nancy places on having the students curate as a learning activity, and to increase their information literacy is especially telling. It seems to me to point up a way that best practices could actually be shared and discussed within organizations. I have often seen companies try to implement knowledge sharing around best practices but it frequently falls to the wayside,especially as content ages.
It seems like curation could be a way to keep adding to the discussion and the currency of best practices by introducing fresh voices and real life examples.
