Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education

Paul Mihailidis, James N Cohen:

"In today’s hypermedia landscape, youth and young adults are increasingly using social media platforms, online aggregators and mobile applications for daily information use. Communication educators, armed with a host of free, easy-to-use online tools, have the ability to create dynamic approaches to teaching and learning about information and communication flow online. In this paper we explore the concept of curation as a student- and creation-driven pedagogical tool to enhance digital and media literacy education. We present a theoretical justification for curation and present six key ways that curation can be used to teach about critical thinking, analysis and expression online. We utilize a case study of the digital curation platform Storify to explore how curation works in the classroom, and present a framework that integrates curation pedagogy into core media literacy education learning outcomes.!

curation as a core competency today

Elizabeth Sky-McIlvain's curator insight, July 10, 2013 6:07 PM

For upper HS teachers.  I have been grappling with the value of "curation" for a while now.  Basically, curation without commentary is, I think, like collecting recipes one will never cook.  This article presents a way to use the online tool Storify ( to make the curation of content meaningful (both to the collector and to an audience).  I'm still not sure I buy it - but the author is correct that this an educational trend that should be embraced and encouraged, not ignored.

Elias Morling estime que les curateurs sont comme les "dumpster divers", ces militants qui fouillent les poubelles.  Et ils les appelle les "vrais influenceurs" car :


1. Les curateurs représentent un nouveau type de leadership tribal bottom up et peer-to-peer.


2. En tant que membres d'une tribu, les curateurs seront toujours plus "natives" que n'importe qui parlant de l'extérieur.


3. Au sein de la tribu, ils sont appréciés non seulement pour leurs compétences, mais aussi parce qu'ils entretiennent et développent leur propre culture.

Excellent article and video. Looking at the wonderful world of the internet and curation. The idea of curation of online content has become more and more inportant with the exponential growth of content on the world wide web. Being able to organise and manage all of the content is important.


Curation is about making good choices about what you share and putting it into a context for themselves and others. Being enthusiastic and thoughtful about what you choose is a way of showing what you are finding and sharing is signficant and worthwhile. 


Finding the most interesting and valuable things and sharing that is the key. What you want and what you are interested in is important but you also need to consider your audience.
