This educator describes how Scoop.it can be the tool by which you teach students to gather, manage, and evaluate information. I 100% agree with his caveat at the bottom that Scoop.it doesn't do the teaching but because it is so simple and seamless and allows for so much interaction and feedback between student curator and instructor, it is the perfect medium for it.

Need a new subjects or all higher education students - digital content curation - we provide less pre-preapred resources - students need to learn what is worth citing
