Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.

Why Digital Learning Is Here To Stay

Why Digital Learning Is Here To Stay | eLearning | Scoop.it
Digital learning is coming whether people like it or not. The new standards call for it. Twenty-first century readiness requires it. Future jobs rely on it. There is no doubt that educational technology has the power to motivate kids, so why not harness that passion in the K-12 classroom? There are many reasons why digital learning has arrived and is here to stay.

Definitely should be part of learning, but not ALL the learning. Digital skills are like all other skills - tools. The CONTENT is what is really important! Too much focus is often on the tools being used, rather than what they are supposed to be teaching.....
