By Justin Marquis Ph.D. There’s a great big World (Wide Web) out there, and it’s hard to keep track of everything you find in it.
Fortunately there are a bunch of tools available to let the Internet remember for you. Curation and annotation tools allow you to not only "remember" a web site, but also to take notes about the pages you’ve visited, save them right on the pages themselves, and even share them with others.

"With the amount of information that is available on the internet, it's important for teachers to filter through websites to find relevant information in a timely manner. As a blogger, I believe we "curate" the web automatically to help keep things organized and to convey information in as detailed and easy a way as possible.
Now, with the addition of dedicated websites, people can curate the web and save information on their own while sharing this vital information with others."
Very impressive digital animation, a must see...
