Leah Lesley Christensen's curator insight, December 2, 2013 1:37 PM

Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is http://bundlr.com/b/content-curation-definition 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation http://huzzaz.com/collection/content-curation-what-is-it 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is www.pinterest.com/robingood/content-curation-visualized/ 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access http://contentcuration.zeef.com/ 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation http://bit.ly/ContentCurationToolsSupermap All free to use and share.

Docs Teach sponsored by National Archives remains my favorite, but the LIFE photos are fantastic and searchable by decade.  All provide valuable links to support Common Core standards.

The Best 11 Presentation and Slides Search Engines for Teachers

The Best 11 Presentation and Slides Search Engines for Teachers | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

Searching for presentations and slideshows using a general search engine is not a practical choice to take. While such engines can also provide search results containing presentations but will never be as effective and time saving as a special presentation search engine. Unfortunately some educators still go to Google, Yahoo or Bing to look for presentations while in fact they can make their search way easier and beneficial with a single click in a specific  search engine, one that  is designed, in the first place,  to host and provide users with only presentations.
