Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | Librarians in the real world | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solvingre-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing." 


Via Mary Clark, Dennis T OConnor
Deborah Welsh's insight:

Content curation is what teacher librarians do - it's the value adding that is important for teachers and students. " curation is a process of problem solvingre-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing." Absolutely.
