Tweet I have written and spoken extensively about the use of Twitter in education: as one social network tool to connect, collaborate and amplify ...
There are different sides to Twitter as a Curation tool:
Taking advantage of a network of curators working for you (building your own customized network), consuming their curated informationCollecting, organizing, connecting, attributing, interpreting, summarizing the vast amount of information that comes across your desk/ feed /books/articles/etc. for YOURSELF!Becoming consciously the curator for others for a particular niche, area of expertise or interest. Disseminate resources, add value, put in perspective, create connections, present in a different light/media/language.Real time curation allows you to be part of an event, that you physically might not be attending or being on the opposite end allows you to be the bridge for others to participate at an event where you are present, but your network is not."
