Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

According to Boyd (2010) curators help people to focus their attention on the most relevant and important information streams.

Amazing to think it took 50 years for 50% of UK Hospitals to use the phone routinely. You don't need to be a glaciologist to realise the big freeze on technological change is now rampant and unstoppable. Facebook in medical practice - who would have thought?
